The Riverside Fuji is a short 10 minutes walk to the livelier shops and beach but, due to it's riverside location, the feeling is like returning to your home comforts after a busy day out.

This hidden gem is a 10 minute walk from the main beach, waking up to a delicious breakfast each morning on out balcony. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the service was amazing - helpful but not pushy and giving really good recommendations of one of our favourite restaurants. Highly recommend!

You won't be disappointed if you stay here, it is a very peaceful and beautiful sanctuary on the river, ten minutes walk away from the sea ( which in August was wild and windy and we were so pleased we chose not to stay at a beachfront place.) Kumara is the friendliest host and went out of his way to...
