The River House

    Anchored by a mansion that has been refurbished in a modern Asian style, the seven-acre estate includes a swimming pool, a pool house, and a beach and dock on the river. The River House’s five suites feature a blend of buffed concrete, local woods, and antiques. Each unit opens to a large outdoor living space, where subtle touches—a bowlful of mangoes, an immense plate of cashews, vases packed with plumeria—supplement the Madhu Ganga scenery. Accommodations Five suites, each of which is unique. The Singhe Suite, on the second floor, has a large balcony with a plunge pool and offers the best views of the river. Recreation River tours, attending local dances, surfing at nearby beaches, antiques shopping, and en suite massages. Dining Breakfast choices are labeled “Not so healthy” (eggs and bacon), “Healthy” (homemade muesli, syrup, and fresh fruit), and “Healthiest” (a fruit platter). Worthy Diversion Wake up in time to watch the multicolored sunrise from a canoe on the Madhu Ganga. Rates Suites from $310 to $550. Whole-villa rental is $1,800 per night.
