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. Breakfast is included in the tariff.

Shared facilities include:

- Well-equipped modern kitchen with gas cooktop, fridge, toaster, kettle, water filter and microwave ...Read more
