Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Mount Lavinia Beach is located just out of the Colombo city. This beach strip has a lot to offer for the locals as well as the tourists visiting Colombo. Along the beach there are many nice restaurants pubs as well as relaxing areas. As a tourist who is visiting Colombo, Mount Lavinia Beach is a must visit. The weekends could be crowded with locals though, during the week it is relaxing and peaceful. If you would relax at a pool overlooking the ocean or the sunset, The Mount Lavinia Hotel terrace is recommended. You can use the Mount Lavinia Hotel pool for an affordable fee.
Useful Information: Food available for purchase

A terrific place(But then I try not to be biased cos I worked in this establishment when I lived in Sri lanka many many moons ago!) but its got better over the years once the new wing was built several years ago.The terrace is a great place to entertain friends or family as they have entertainment each night with some really cool musicians!the food is great too.

a really nice beach for quiet sunbathing and relaxing, with waiter service and a beach side casual restaurant. The poolside restaurant offers an elevated, wonderful ocean view and breeze, chilled pool and great food. Night time dinning includes a cultural dance show and Sri Lankan music. Several restaurants to choose from. I come as a day guest for the beach on our cruise. The spa offers very nice massage

Went back to Mount , for our anniversary celebrations..
Nothing has changed, but the services have..
The waiters seems lethargic and not very attentive. The food on BBQ sometimes are very cold- Not a good sign..
Else the infrastructure is the same..That may be a good thing.:)
