“very nice place to stay”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

The owner of the guesthouse, Mr. Kumara, was extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. The atmosphere is very familiar because there are only three rooms. The breakfast in the garden at the riverside is unforgettable. Our room was very clean and service always kind. Next time we're in Bentota, without any doubt, we're going back to this unique guesthouse. Looking forward to sipping tea with Mr. Kumara again!

I stayed here for 8 weeks in 2010 whilst in Sri Lanka, travelling as a female solo traveller and Fuji really became like my second home. Sanjaya and his family made me feel very welcome and their hospitality is amazing. I didn't want to leave! I had a room upstairs which was lovely and had great views of the river. The rooms are cleaned to a high standard and I had flowers placed on my bed every day, which was a lovely touch. The food is cooked by Sanjaya, a chef who has years of experience from working in Japan and is to a very high standard and Sanjaya will literally cater to your needs! I can't wait to return one day to see people who literally became like second family and made me feel so welcome. If you're ever in Bentota and want a true Sri Lankan welcome, Riverside Inn Fuji is the place.

Room Tip: The room upstairs on the left has great views of the river.

I cant recommend this place highly enough. Lovely villa style building with fantastic views of the Bentota river, which make for a great breakfast setting every morning. Extremely clean and run by a lovely guy who is just so helpful (both him and his staff really add to how great this place is). The location is also superb as it is set back slightly from the main road of Bentota which makes it a peaceful place but is still only a 5-7 min walk to the beach and restaurants.

I will definitely be returning to this place if i am ever lucky enough to go back to Sri Lanka again!! Great Value for money.
