I have spent a week in Ranveli Beach Resort -Mount Lavinia and I was amazed by their service. The food is tasty and the condition of the room and the facilities are quality. I would recommend this place if anyone visiting Sri Lanka.

Just came back from Ranveli. The staff are friendly and always ready to help you beyond your expectations. The location is excellent from where you can just cross the train bars and go to a very long beach. You can hear the music of the waves even when you are in your room. The trains pass every now and then... More

It was my first trip to Colombo and thought to book a resort. Ranveli was the worst decision I ever took in selecting any resort/Hotel. First we reached little earlier coz our flight was early hours landing so we requested for the early check inn, but manager was so rude he didn't allowed. Then we settled in little garden keeping...

Dear Mr.Jilecious, Stayed at Ranveli Beach Resort July 2014??? Suddenly woke up after one year. Any Hotel check in time is at the 2pm up to 4 am. our’s is 2.00 pm .When you come at 5.00am there is no early check in? Nonsense. Our hotel is full house most of the time. Loss of sunglasses is a fabricated story.... More

One of the best and homely hotel I have ever visited. This is my 7 or 8th stay in this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and trustworthy as once I forgot my cash of SLR 35000/- at room but Hotel Mangers personally took care of it which I am very grateful. This is not a 5-star hotel but the... More

Stayed at the hotel last weekend. 6-8 June. It was terrible. The prices differ and there were frogs everywhere. What disgusted me the most was the washrooms, it felt like living in a slum. Sheets were stained. Ac pieces were falling off, never ever again. Stay away!!

This resort is average and needs improvement. It is in very close proximity to the rail tracks; thus there is lots of disturbance while the trains pass. You might even feel that the train may go through your room. The rooms are sub-standard for the price charged. The WiFi does not get connected anywhere in the resort, except one part... More

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
