Every staff was very nice to us and they served us with a great hospitality and consideration. Plus, the food and drink in the restaurant were outstanding, we were totally impressed by the Japanese style food. I’d like to send special thanks to Mr. Dilan who served in the restaurant, his job was tremendously quick, precise and he was very nice to our daughter. We really appreciate him for treating her that way. Thanks to all the services by the staff and the beautiful room, it became a part of our wonderful memories in Sri Lanka. We’ll surely stay here again soon.

This property is like a hidden gem... I was here with my family and we all absolutely loved it! The staff were so friendly, professional and courteous. The rooms are just beautiful, clean and comfortable. View is 👌🏾👌🏾 Food was beyond what we expected, even though we got a discount on the rate, they had NOT cut down on the quality and quantity. The pool was so clean and well maintained. Overall this is the best out of colombo hotel that we have visited! Thank you to all the hard working staff at The Riff. Keep up the good work.

This place was fantastic in all aspects. The service was great, the food was great, and also what was really nice about it is that there is no plastic used at all except for in appliances and after Covid - many hotels have been cutting down on the food and little amenities but not at this hotel. All standards were kept up as it was before covid.
