Although travelling as a couple, we stayed in the triple room on the first floor which is quite a new room. It was huge and very comfortable. The bathroom was excellent. The room was kept immaculately clean and the standard of the linen was very good. We also had a large terrace overlooking the garden and river. A tasty breakfast...

The FUJI was the best guest house that we have had on our six-week-trip with motobike through the country and surrounding. It was the best place to come down and relax from the "stress" of travelling. Very idyllic at the laguna. The owner and his staff are very kindly and help in any request. A boatstour on the River in...

We stayed 4 nights at this most romantic place at the edge of the river. Kumara, his wife and staff were always at our disposition and we felt like in a family. Also we enjoyed the good food of Kumara and we do not hesitate to recommend this lovely corner to everyone! Anna and Priska

If you are looking to relax then this is the place for you. The Riverside Fuji is a short 10 minutes walk to the livelier shops and beach but, due to it's riverside location, the feeling is like returning to your home comforts after a busy day out. Kumara is the most accepting host. He is humble, polite and very...

This hidden gem is a 10 minute walk from the main beach, waking up to a delicious breakfast each morning on out balcony. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the service was amazing - helpful but not pushy and giving really good recommendations of one of our favourite restaurants. Highly recommend!
