What our clients say


Situated on the banks of Sri Lanka’s grand Madhu Ganga, The River House is a luxurious romantic getaway with just five suites set on 13 acres of land. The River House is ranked as one of CNN Travel’s “Sexy Skinny Dip Spots” and also by as one of “50 Best Places in the World to Honeymoon”. Located just 40 minutes from the historical
city of Galle, The River House is a great place to stay in the south of Sri Lanka.

Plunge-pool Suite, Menik - This spacious and luxurious suite is artfully designed. Offering stunning views of the river beyond, the Suite’s spectacular plunge pool for two on its balcony is named as one of CNN Travel’s ‘Sexy Skinny Dip Spots’.

Jacuzzi Suite, Gin & Walawe – Each of these suites include an open-air Jacuzzi for two that lets you slip in side by side as a waterfall spills gently onto you. You can even sit in your private garden and enjoy the sunset as you gaze at the Madhu River.

Garden Suites, Kala & Kirinda - With a private garden, each of these suites include a verandah from where you can enjoy the peace of your surroundings.

The River House has much more for a great stay – the poolside is surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden whilst the Madhu Ganga is perfect for a River Safari and is also a bird watcher’s haven.
