‘Seclusion and Romance; Boutique Escape’

The River House is perched along the banks of the Madhu Ganga, residing amongst magnificent waterways and lush mangrove forests. Only five suites are featured here, with each offering its own personality and some boasting private gardens, pools and open-air Jacuzzis. The hotel runs an Any Time, Any Where dining concept which may see you starting your day with a champagne breakfast by the river and ending with an intimate dinner under the boughs of a Kumbuk tree. The outdoor pool is surrounded by cashew nut and Nuga trees and purple-faced langur monkeys can often be spotted tree-hopping. Away from the hotel you can depart on an early morning boat ride to a nearby temple or discover your surroundings by kayaking.
