Asia Leisure: Truly Yours Hear your soul whisper at The River House

A chic minimalist affair, The River House is a five-suite property situated by the serene banks of the Madu River and tucked away amidst lush greenery.

“The River House has been recognized as one of the Most Special Escapes in the World by Mr. and Mrs. Smith Hotel Awards, as well as named as one of the Top 50 Honeymoon Destinations in the World, by The Knot, which is the largest source for wedding information”.



The elegance of a bygone era - high vaulted ceilings, wrap around verandahs, exotic bedspreads and antique furniture and sculpture – artfully blend with elegant contemporary comforts in River House’s five suites. Named after rivers in Sri Lanka, each suite is both a villa and sanctuary in its own right.



Vibrant colours of the earth come together to create a warm, cozy feel in Kirinda and Kala whilst offering absolute solitude with not a soul in sight but the nil manel blossoming in your private pond. Gin and Walawe both offer an open air Jacuzzi for two with a waterfall and a private garden overlooking the river. Meanwhile, quiet grandeur and gorgeous views of the Madu River come together in the immense suite that is Manik, home to one of CNN Travel’s 21 Sexiest Plunge Pools for Skinny Dipping in the World.
