The space
Welcome to Riviera , an idyllic, eco-friendly family-run guest house in Batticaloa, on the eastern coast of Sri Lanka.
The Resort was established in 1981 and borne out of the desire to preserve nature and share our picturesque corner of Sri Lanka with guests from all over the world. Riviera Resort, which is within the city limits, has been a labour of love.

It started off as a comfortable family villa and the accommodation has been added to over the years with chalets and simple cabanas. The resort has fifteen double and single air-conditioned and non air-conditioned rooms. It offers a modest reception hall, with a lagoon front seating area, which is ideal for open air meetings and garden parties.

A treat for artists and nature lovers alike, with picture perfect sunsets.
Within earshot of the famed music of the singing fish, audible during full moon days.
Secluded beach is just within a 10 minute walk.
1½ km from the town, 0.5km from the eastern railway terminal station. It just take $2 -3 for a tuk tuk ride to take you to Riviera Resort.
The resort has a 3 in 1 panorama of land, sky and water.

The resort with 0.5 hectares of land has a parkland setting with a rich biodiversity of flowering plants & local vegetation.
The sky is filled with numerous species of land based and aquatic birds, and butterflies adding a rich kaleidoscope of colour.

The lagoon and adjoining sea offer a wide variety of seafood including fish, prawns, crab and cuttlefish. Riviera Resort offers stunning views of the lagoon, which is an unparalleled beauty. The lagoon is navigable almost up to 45 – 50 km inland and it is dotted with many islets, many of which serve as verdant bird sanctuaries.

Fishing in small canoes is an age old tradition by local fishermen. Mechanized boat and canoe rides are common. In addition, activities including rowing, angling and birdwatching can be enjoyed during your stay at Riviera Resort.

At out resort you will be able to see our biogas plant, charcoal making and preparation of biochar for our organic garden.

Location

Kallady, Eastern Province, Sri Lanka

Riviera Resort is in the small town called Kallady which is sandwiched between the Batticaloa lagoon and the the popular Kallady Beach which is a 10 minutes walk from my resort. There are small shops to buy the essentials but the Batticaloa town center is only 2 km away.
