The property

Riverside8On12 is a quiet hideaway 5 Km from the historic city of Kandy on the bank of the Mahaweli River at Lewella in Sri Lanka. You wake up to the sound of birds and chipmunks, and cool down in the evening on the balconies overlooking the river, watching formations of cormorants and egrets heading off to their nesting places while fireflies light up the 'kahata' tree in the foreground.

We have three air-conditioned double rooms with their own bathrooms with hot showers.

Shared facilities include:
- Well-equipped modern kitchen with gas cooktop, fridge, toaster, kettle, water filter and microwave oven
- Dining area with ample crockery and cutlery
- Two balconies facing the river and one facing inland
- Two spacious and well-furnished living areas
- Laundry with automatic washing machine and area for drying.

We visited Kandy during Perahera season and we enjoyed very much coming back to such a quiet place every evening. We had two rooms on the upper floor with a great view on the Mahaweli River, each with its own bathroom. Very clean, great breakfast, very nice and helpful owner! Although the house is a little bit outside the town,...

How to get there
Airport: We can arrange transportation for airport pickup/dropoff vehicles as well as for short and long tour: 64.0 mi
Railway: Kandy Railway Station has taxis and tuktuks for hire. Tuktuks are the most economical for two people: 4.0 mi
If you are coming to Riverside8On12 from Colombo or the airport in the morning, it is well worth the effort to include a detour to visit the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage. It is close too half-way on the trip and an excellent place for brunch/lunch or just a drink while watching the elephants bathe in the river. An alternative stop on this trip is the Ambepussa Rest House for a more substantial meal. Don't forget to watch the flute player in his tree house.<BR><BR>The Riverside8On12 website has a document written in Sinhala and English that gives detailed directions on how to get from Kandy town to Riverside8On12. You may wish to print this so you can show it to your taxi/Tuktuk driver.
