Rihiveli by Castaway Hotels & Escapes

Beautiful lagoon. There are 2 uninhabited islands within the lagoon that belong to the main island where you can walk over or just grab a kayak to get there. You can see dozens of sting rays and hundreds of fishes.
Great place. Very nice and helpful staff. Good food.
2 daily snorkeling trips free of charge to different locations. You can swim with dolphins since a huge colony is living there at the entrance of the lagoon! You can see them every day playing there. We'll go back sometime for sure!

Stayed: March 2017

Had an amazing long weekend at Rihiveli with family. This was our second visit there and Wasantha was very efficient and helpful as usual in arranging the reservation and transfers.

Rooms are basic with no AC, no minibar but the highlight of the resort is the beach and the two nearby islands which you can walk or use a canoe....

Food choice was less, but was very tasty, lavish and nicely presented....Loved the desserts, especially the pineapple gateau and homemade ice creams!!!!!

There was nothing much for kids except the beautiful lagoon and the beach, but of course, they loved their time in the sea.

Overall it was an amazing weekend for good value for money.
