Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
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.

“A brilliant beachfront hotel”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

A terrific place(But then I try not to be biased cos I worked in this establishment when I lived in Sri lanka many many moons ago!) but its got better over the years once the new wing was built several years ago.The terrace is a great place to entertain friends or family as they have entertainment each night with some really cool musicians!the food is great too.

“excellent atmosphere”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

a really nice beach for quiet sunbathing and relaxing, with waiter service and a beach side casual restaurant. The poolside restaurant offers an elevated, wonderful ocean view and breeze, chilled pool and great food. Night time dinning includes a cultural dance show and Sri Lankan music. Several restaurants to choose from. I come as a day guest for the beach on our cruise. The spa offers very nice massage

“Mount on Celebration”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Went back to Mount , for our anniversary celebrations..
Nothing has changed, but the services have..
The waiters seems lethargic and not very attentive. The food on BBQ sometimes are very cold- Not a good sign..
Else the infrastructure is the same..That may be a good thing.:)
