The first Sri Lankan property to be included in Condé Nast Traveller’s annual Hot List, the River House Balapitiya features villa-style accommodation. It is only 1.5 km from Balapitiya Beach.
Offering views of the garden or the Madhu River, rooms at River House are inspired by South Asian architecture.
Guests can enjoy an in-room massage, or go for a relaxing swim in the outdoor pool that’s surrounded by greenery. Canoes are available for a quiet cruise down the river. Free Wi-Fi and free parking are also provided.
International dishes are served at the 24-hour restaurant. Views of the garden and greenery accompany meals in an open-air setting.
