We had booked 8 nights in Lavanga and arrived there late in the night. It is a hotel at the south end of Hikkaduwa, about 3-4 km from the city centre, with direct access to the beautiful beach. We had the opinion that our travel agency had booked sea view room WITH balcony but had to realise that the sea...

I stayed here because my first choice of hotel wasn't available for the first two days of my trip, and on first impression it seemed very nice - pretty reception, drinks being provided on arrival, big hotel etc, but this place is very rough around the edges. I accept that the calibre of staff in the service industry in Sri...

We stayed at the Lavanga Resort in late January 2017 with the family. We were in a deluxe family room with generous space for kids to frolic around. The room had top class facilities reserved for a five star hotel. The views were breathtaking. The staff were extremely friendly and always helpful. The library was excellent with a good choice...

Internally a very nice hotel but externally a very tired looking hotel and first impressions are important. Not a very inviting hotel, however it's in a fantastic location with superb views. Rooms are a good standard and large but always book a sea view as road facing rooms do not have a view or balcony and are small. Food and...
