I only came here to chill by the poolside and it's beautiful! A great place to spend a few hours, chilling with cocktails and snacks!

This place has the best breakfast buffet around Colombo but they always have a good lunch and dinner buffet. We took our engagement photos here but also did our wedding reception here. They give us a sea side room for our wedding night....

The best beach in the Colombo province. The sandy nature and the sunset view makes it a romantic attraction. Although it's sometimes crowded, it isn't a bad experience. Lavinia breeze and the shore by o! are two nice places to have some food or some drinks if you ever visit the beach. Yeah they are a bit pricey but worthy... More

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.
