River Grove, set on a hillock in tropical gardens, is a simple homestay experience that provides an insight into Sri Lankan living and traditional cuisine. Owners Raja and Shirani are very hospitable and will ensure guests have a relaxing holiday. Shirani is an excellent cook and is happy to share her recipes with guests. Go bird watching along the Mahaweli River; visit Kandy’s ancient cultural sites or just relax in the garden with a cup of Ceylon tea. River Grove can accommodate four guests.
