Lonely Planet review
Perched at the water’s edge with views of Kallady Bridge and the lagoon, the Riviera is certainly a peaceful, relaxing place to stay. The accommodation has some old-fashioned charm but would benefit from a makeover; expect somewhat dark rooms and a slightly faded feel. Still, there's a well-stocked bar and restaurant offering good local cooking.
Kayaks are available for hire (s/d Rs 500/800) for exploring the lagoon and there are also bikes.
Our independent authors have visited Riviera Resort and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Batticaloa.
