Adequate is probably the best word to describe the 'resort' - standard rooms are not recommended, however, the A/C rooms are good. Our's had 2 comfy beds, small but clean bathroom, and an ocean facing balcony. The resort has very basic creature comforts - don't expect anything fancy. + Very close to the Mount Lavinia beach, literally on the other... More

Me and my wife stayed here for a couple of days. The resort is not at all customer friendly. They charged us for our early checkin and also asked us to pay the room charges before we checked in. The manager her is very rude and will not help you with anything. The rooms are dull and the bathrooms are... More

Stayed here for a night before flying out of Colombo at the end of our hols. The resort gave a good impression - nice reception, pool, welcome drinks. The room is very basic - I could tell that there had been painting done recently as the smell of pain was very strong in the room. Was a bit of a... More

This hotel is right next to the beach near Mt. Lavinia. Its a quaint property and has a swimming pool. A railway track runs between the hotel & the beach, so there are trains passing by. But these do not cause any significant disturbance and only add to the local color. Foot over-bridges are available to cross the tracks. This... More

It is a budget resort providing complimentary breakfast, AC rooms, swimming pool and they also provide cab services for city tour etc. However the best part is: Ranveli resort is located just aside the scenic beach of Mount Lavinia (hardly 2 mins walk). In order to go to the beach we have to cross an open restaurant/bar and that's another... More
