About The River House

About The River House


Tucked away in a sequestered nook along the southern coasts of Sri Lanka, The River House is a serene retreat of magnificent beauty. Here, nature lovers will find themselves in a setting that makes their heart sing, for they are surrounded by a vast landscape of unspoilt greenery. Enveloped by wilderness, this secluded and scenic spot serves as the perfect venue for couples to hold the tropical destination wedding of their dreams.

Outdoor & Pool Area


A sparkling pool sits within a vast garden, its glistening waters offering promises of providing a cool respite from the heat. Engulfed by cashew nut and Nuga trees, the garden offers a verdant sanctuary for all to relax and rejuvenate. Sunbathe upon the sunbeds during the afternoons, and enjoy a round of sundowners in the evening. Gaze out into the swaying branches as you do so, and you will catch sight of mischievous purple-faced langur monkeys swinging delightedly from tree to tree.

Living Area


The distinction between modern and traditional disappears at The River House. Its tastefully decorated living spaces contain a seamless blend of contemporary and traditional fixtures, with polished marble flooring and chic couches sitting next to oriental wooden windows and furnishings.

During your stay, in whichever endeavour you undertake, expect nothing less than the best. When it comes to dining, the villa staff ups the ante, paying obsessive attention to details to ensure that a fine feast, catering to your every whim and fancy, is prepared. During your free time, sink into utter relaxation under the gentle hands of a professional massage therapist, or engage in an invigorating yoga session by the river bank or upon a soft patch of grass in the garden.

Bedrooms


Five bedroom suites, each named after a river, beckon invitingly towards holidaymakers looking to retire for the night. Wooden fixtures, beautiful ornaments and a variety of warm hues adorn the bedrooms, lending vibes of cosiness and comfort to the interiors. The award winning Menik suite clinched a spot on CNN Travel’s ‘21 Sexy Skinny Dip Spots’ around the world. Gin, Kirinda, Kala and Walawe are close contenders, boasting striking interiors that will not fail to impress.

Around The River House


Balapitiya presents a fine selection of travel activities for vacation makers residing in the coastal town. The impressive Madhu Ganga, home to stunning waterways and pristine mangrove forests, offers an excellent site for birdwatching. Take an early morning boat ride to explore its tranquil serenity, or embark on a kayaking trip if you are in the mood for an adventure. Madugnga Lake will captivate the hearts of nature lovers, while Kowilawatta Temple will interest cultural buffs.

We arrived on our first night in Sri Lanka to The River House. It location is exceptionally beautiful. The hotel only has five rooms and is equally as stunning as it's location. Our room overlooked the water with a huge private terrace and private plunge pool. The external pool area is amazing and if you swim after dark you'll be accompanied by the light of fireflies. The staff were all amazing, kind and friendly especially Lakmal, Miguel and the manager Sudath. Food was fantastic at dinner and breakfast. I would 100% go back again!

This was my First Hotel Check-in In Srilanka. I found the place so solitary. A great escapade from the bustling city :). The five hour travel from airport to Balapithiya was exhaustingly fun. we were the only guest for that time being. so the staff manage to really pamper us. The manager and staff were so helpful and friendly they even picked Fresh Mangoes for me for a quick snack :). We stayed for 3 days. and was well accomodated. we Took the second great suite which is in the ground Floor "GIN" which has an Open flowing Living, Dining and Bed Area. the Bathroom was huge. thou we had a small private Jaccuzi.we actually booked the Best suite that they have, which was at the 1st floor of the hotel.unfortunately they didnt booked it for us. They have a pool few steps away from the suite. we managed to have a tour to different suites that they have. i love the local designs and Interior.The food were great. just the pancakes wasnt that prepared as i was expected.

We were not suppose to be at this hotel but found ourselves here as a result of them double booking us at one of their other properties ,Shinagawa so we arrived with mixed feelings . It is off the beaten track and is a beautiful setting. The view from the main building over the river is delightful.The weather was not great by the beach so to be by the river in a sheltered tropical surround was ideal. The staff were very friendly and tried extremely hard to keep us happy and see to our every need. We had the suite which is completely separate to the main building and is extremely private. It is a large room with separate bathroom and an outdoor spa in a small private garden. The pool is also away from the main building and is surrounded by tropical plants.We spent the afternoon there with the entire pool to ourselves and if we wanted anything we just rang a bell. Meals are served when and where you want them and are of the highest quality. The last night was my birthday and they went to enormous trouble to set the table by the pool and decorate it with tropical flower arrangements .My husband had picked the menu and I presented with a birthday cake to finish. We hired a tuk tuk through the hotel and went into Galle on one of the days. We were also given a free boat trip on the river which was very enjoyable and the staff on the boat were very friendly and made the trip interesting. If you are looking for peace and quiet is lovely surrounds with excellent service this is a great place to go. Note the mosquitos are hungry

This is a beautiful hotel situated in balapitiya. The service was excellent and our room was absolutely stunning. We had a reduced rate because we live in Sri Lanka so I am not sure how much more expensive it is usually. The food was not the best we have had, but considering how stunning our room and the surroundings were, we were not too bothered by this. There are lovely grounds for walking and if you want to go out in a boat/canoe the hotel can arrange this. We highly recommend this hotel!
