I've stayed here multiple times over the last 15 years - the most recent was in December 2014. It's a real family run Sri Lanka guesthouse in a beautiful location - on a river but you can also see the sea/beach from your window. If you like faceless, all inclusive huge hotels then don't stay here (that's clearly where some...

A few years ago there used to be a crab farm just a few houses away, where you could select...

His house is located at the riverside, where you can stare while you're having a lovely dinner. The cook is amazing. Best fishsoup we ever...

We stayed a second time at Anuska River Inn this time in a different room (the one at the front left side as you overlook the river) There was a very weak wifi and phone signal there because of the placement of the router at the front desk. When I asked Athula about it he said it was because their...

The outlook is beauitiful and the room was large and well organised. Atulla was full of information about the area and even though we stayed only...
