Owner description: Mount Lavinia Beach is located just out of the Colombo city. This beach strip has a lot to offer for the locals as well as the tourists visiting Colombo. Along the beach there are many nice restaurants pubs as well as relaxing areas. As a tourist who is visiting Colombo, Mount Lavinia Beach is a must visit. The weekends could be crowded with locals though, during the week it is relaxing and peaceful. If you would relax at a pool overlooking the ocean or the sunset, The Mount Lavinia Hotel terrace is recommended. You can use the Mount Lavinia Hotel pool for an affordable fee.
Useful Information: Food available for purchase

The hotel was originally a British Governors residence. Governors rooms are still there and I have visited a friend who stayed there last year. Poolside is adjoining the Governors restaurant where there are different buffets at meal times. AC and non AC. My last visit was to the sea food cove where one can get all types of fresh sea food Chef will prepare the way you prefer once you order. Open air seating by the sea and seating with roof are both available. No AC as you can get the sea breeze direct.

Mount beach was a very beautiful and tourist place long before. Due to more business activities in the beach it has become more like commercial now. The huts change into concrete buildings at present and taken the natural beauty of the beach. But still it is a nice place to relax and not far away from the main city.

During a business trip to Colombo Sri Lanka, got a drive to Mt Lavinia hotel and had a great lunch !! The food was sensational, the view was spectacular, and the pool was brilliant.

The old style hotel was a great site,

Can definately recommend this for a lunch

The beach is close to Colombo city and is fairly clean and there are plenty of places to eat. Most of the resturants in Mount Lavinia is located along the beach. Beautiful beach to visit in the evening during sunset. Is a good place for Morning or evening walk.
