    We returned here after over 11 years ago where we renewed our wedding vows in 2008. Its a gorgeous hotel on a cliff top, amazing location, food and wine. You can you choose from buffet menu, a la carte menu and terrace menu. We had high tea on our last afternoon which was excellent value for money. Own private beach and all staff were wonderful and helpful.

    Nothing.

About

Overview

Step back in time to an era of colonial splendour, mystique and romance. Mount Lavinia Hotel offers you the very best of modern facilities blended with a magical touch of antiquity. This enchanting British Colonial heritage hotel, located on a breathtaking beachfront, is a living legacy to the secret love story between the British Governor General of Ceylon, Sir Thomas Maitland, and the beautiful mestizo dancer, Lovina. The legendary romance has made this Colombo hotel one of the most popular venues in Sri Lanka for weddings; couples from around the world fly to this fabled island for a custom-planned wedding at the Mount Lavinia Hotel. The Victorian era ambiance, gourmet cuisine prepared by our world-class chefs and the exceptional service, have made this luxury beach resort in the city the preferred venue for conventions, product launches, dinner dances, theme parties and other private events. Sun-bathed terraces, warm Sri Lankan hospitality, the promise of adventure, and period decor rooms with modern amenities whisper the promise of a magical stay at the hotel.
