Riviera Resort

Top choice hotel in Batticaloa
Image by Booking.com

Perched at the water’s edge with serene views of Kallady Bridge and the lagoon, the Riviera is a peaceful, relaxing place to stay. The accommodation has some old-fashioned charm, especially the units with large patios. It's easy to overlook a slightly faded feel. There's a well-stocked bar and a restaurant offering good local cooking. Service is excellent.

Kayaks are available for hire (single/double Rs 500/800) for exploring the lagoon and there's also a good range of bikes.
