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.
The accommodation will provide you with a seating area. Featuring a shower, private bathroom also comes with free toiletries.
At Riviera Resort you will find a 24-hour front desk, a garden and barbecue facilities. Other facilities offered at the property include meeting facilities, a shared lounge and luggage storage. An array of activities can be enjoyed on site or in the surroundings, including cycling, fishing and hiking. The property offers free parking.
The property is a 5-minute drive from the Batticalao Railway Station, a 10-minute drive from the Batticalao Bus station and a 8-minute drive from Sri Lanka Portuguese Burgher Foundation.
