I loved my stay here. The hotel is right on the river, which is great for swimming and kayaking. The grounds are beautiful and well-kept, and the bedroom was very comfortable with great A/C. The cabin/bungalow I stayed in was quaint, quiet, and I loved relaxing on the hammock on my front porch. The food seemed to be authentic, home-cooked local food (the cooks are very kind Achenese women), and it was a highlight of the stay. All of the staff and management in general are very kind and helpful.

Simple and spacious accomdations with amazing food and amazing people! If visiting Banda Aceh, I highly recommend staying at Riverside. We brought our family and the kids had a blast on the beach as well as taking the boat up the river. Sam, the owner, is the nicest guy and very helpful. We will be back!

I stayed a month at the riverside for a surf holiday and I think it's the best place to stay here in Longkha beach. My friend and I rented a beautiful wooden house with 2 rooms, bathroom and kitchen. all very comfortable and cared for. besides waking up every morning in this fantastic tropical garden, carefully taken care of every day, and at the side of the river made every day more beautiful. Sam, the owner, is a charming person, always available, intelligent and very human. You eat much better than the average of the area. I highly recommend it. 10 and praise!

by the time the airplane fly on top of banda aceh, felt so touched by the tsunami memories. The owner of the resort, Pak sam was waiting at the airport and drove me straight away to the resort. Such a cozy n homey resort with a small village view. Near to the nice white sandy beach. Good waves for surfing, lots of surfer, cheap local food & being invited to a local wedding. Dinner at the resort a bit slow, need to wait about 2 hours to get the food, But the food taste good. And we still can chill with the pool table while waiting for the dinner.
