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.

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!

You won't be disappointed if you stay here, it is a very peaceful and beautiful sanctuary on the river, ten minutes walk away from the sea ( which in August was wild and windy and we were so pleased we chose not to stay at a beachfront place.) Kumara is the friendliest host and went out of his way to...

This small property has really surprised us with the top notch professional treatment, amazing location and super cool breakfast. Our room was just next to river and setting was very peaceful. There were only 4 rooms in the hotel. The location of hotel is a bit off from the main road and road was completely empty when we walked down...
