Stayed here for 19 nights for the cricket T20 world cup. These detached bungalows are set in lovely gardens just around the corner from Mount Lavinia beach. The accommodation has a spacious living area with huge bed and a small but well equipped kitchen. If you need any advice on the local area Ranjith is always happy to help. The bungalows are surrounded by a wall and are very peaceful. You can use the sun beds on the beach for free at the Seaspray Berjaya if you purchase either food or drinks at the bar, the raised bar area is great if you get too hot and had a lovely breeze. The beach was very quiet during the week but lively at the weekend. If you go up the hill to the main road (Galle Road) and head right there is a supermarket or head left and cross the road for a large bakery (highly recommended). Plenty of restaurants in the surrounding area, our favourite was The Angler (near the Mount Lavinia Hotel) for local food. Favourite bar was the Lion Pub (on the Galle Road) which we went in most days except when we were too late after the cricket, they will also show premiership football if possible. To get around the local area and to the cricket ground we used the metered tuktuk's. Look for Siri and his red tuktuk on the corner. Overall great value accomodation and we would definitely stay here again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- From the moment you step into any one of the Cottage Garden Bungalows, set amidst a lush tropical garden in College Avenue, Mount Lavinia, you will enjoy the serenity and comfort of an elegantly furnished bungalow in an exclusive private setting. Located about 100 meters from the iconic Mount Lavinia Beach, these Bungalows are ideal for a getaway weekend, or for a longer stay. Each bungalow consists of a master bedroom furnished with twin beds, bedside lamps, satellite TV connectivity, a built in cupboard as well as chairs and a writing desk for your laptop and other personal items. While windows on both sides of the bedroom make it spacious and airy, you will be lulled to sleep by traditional ceiling fans aided by the winds that blow in from the sea. However, each cottage has its own A/C if required. The verandah with its easy chairs has direct access to the garden. Additional features include a bathroom complete with toilet, wash basin, shower stall with hot and cold water, towels and toiletries; and a kitchenette equipped with a two-burner gas cooker, refrigerator, cutlery, crockery, saucepans and a tea/coffee service. It is also stocked with fresh juice, fruit, bread, butter, eggs, jam/marmalade, curd and coffee or tea. Here, you may assemble your own personalized breakfast at any time convenient to you – after a late lie in bed, or a vigorous swim in the sea, or a stroll along the beach. You don’t have to worry about washing up; this is the job of the bungalow keeper. ... more less
