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

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!!
