I travelled to Kandy for the New Year to see an old friend and visit the Temple of Tooth. I stayed at River Valley Residence, located right by the beautiful Mahaweli River, where I was able to enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of nature. The service at River Valley was of excellent quality with a personal touch. All amenities were provided; lodging was of excellent quality with hot water facilities and extreme comfort. The owners of the Residence gave me a tour of the Sirimalwatte/Lewalle village. Part of the tour included a walk-through of a paddy field to give a thorough overview of growth and harvest of paddy. In addition, I was taken along the Mahaweli river to observe the beauty of nature Mother Earth has to offer. I was able to use the transport service they offered to go about the city of Kandy and visit the historical and religious (Temple of Tooth) locations.
Whether it be for a long holiday, a few day pleasant getaway or a quick stay over, I highly recommend River Valley Residence for any type of holiday.

We enjoyed our stay very much. These newly built rooms were attractive, clean and comfortable. The layout of our rooms suited us well: - Tim and I had a double bedroom with private bathroom and our daughter Ruth had a private bathroom attached to her twin bedded room. The hallway connecting our rooms was excellent as we could drink tea or eat breakfast there together at the table provided. The location of River Valley residence was perfect for our needs, plus shops were nearby. Also the bread van came past on its rounds every morning, which enabled us to buy a fresh breakfast if we wished. Mr & Mrs Munasinghe were very helpful to us if we needed anything, from transport to/from the airport, day trips whether in Kandy or around, plus information and assistance as required. We look forward to staying at River Valley Residence on another occasion.
