I realize it's unfair to compare this place with a more pocket-friendly country like India, but it does hurt. Everything is tourist-priced. But the place is clean & beautiful. The beach is pristine.

I had a opportunity to be on the terrace of mount lavania hotel in the evening. The sunset was awesome. The fish and chips were even better than the ones i tasted in England. evening was wonderful with the sound of the waves and the breeze. after sunset with the clear blue sky I was excited to see the galaxy

Good place to spend your free time with friends and family, specially on weekends. On Sundays the beach is fully crowded. Love to see the sunset 👍 there are many good restaurants to cater you 😄

This popular attraction is just 12 km s or 30 mins away from Colombo city center. Mount Lavinia beach has been popular since colonial era. On mount lavinia beach you get plenty of sea food restaurants with many fresh sea food dishes. This beach also popular among youth for beach parties and sports activities too.

Wow! Seems to under rate the sea food, it can't be more fresh than at this restaurant. Chef cooks to your taste. A treat to your taste buds.

Mt. beach, on of the popular beaches in Sri Lanka, in the western coast near Colombo. Around 14km (~25mins road ride) along the Galle road from Colombo, through crowded towns like Kollupiti, Bambalapiti, Dehiwala... you can come to Mount Lavinia. The beach is almost always crowded with foreigners and locals, bathing, relaxing, playing, etc. Sometimes it is little dirty. Sometimes... More

Visited the hotel for dinner. Was a little disappointed with the variety compared to our previous visits. One little issue was that there was no ice cream served with the desserts. There are some guests that like this dessert.
