Colombo Mount Lavinia (Sri Lanka)

Mount Lavinia Colombo is a popular neighborhood famous for beaches and nightlife. Of all places in the city, Mount Lavinia is definitely one of the most romantic ones. Not only is it known for its wild nightlife and a seaside beach that is known as the ‘Golden Mile’, but for its freedom and passion as well. Every year since 2005, Mount Lavinia hosts the Gay Pride parade and Rainbow Kite Festival. These flavors of freedom, equality, romance, and passion have long been a part of the area and its history. One of the most romantic things about this suburb in the Dehiwala district of Colombo is the reason behind its name. The suburb is a part of larger Dehiwala Mount Lavinia area in Colombo.

Stay in the Heart of Colombo - Mount Lavinia Hotel

Today, Mount Lavinia House is a famous deluxe hotel. Built in colonial style, Mount Lavinia Hotel features a sun terrace, a spa, and multiple options for dining. With a private beach of its own, here you may cherish amazing views of the Colombo's skyline. The very best seafood that Colombo has to offer can be found in and around Mt. Lavinia Beach- located in the outskirts of Colombo city. This beautiful strip of sandy beach has a lot to offer.

Squish into the Glistening Sand at Mount Lavinia Beach

Frequented by the locals as well as the tourists visiting Colombo, the best thing about Mount Lavinia Beach is its exquisite seafood. A popular spot for swimming and sunbathing, here you may partake in watersports such as scuba diving for some adrenaline-pumping. Lining the beach are several small but ambient restaurants and pubs, and relaxing areas. The cabanas on the beach also serve delicious seafood such as lagoon prawns and a wide variety of sea fish. A sunset by the beach and a romantic outdoor dinner or a candlelit dinner by the beach underneath the starry skies. Either way, it is a very romantic setting for any couple’s dinner plans. For a romantic and adventurous excursion, you may head to Dehiwala- Mount Lavinia Beach which is at a distance of 0.2 km, here you may enjoy dive sea shopping, i.e. deep fishing for an altogether a different experience. With a myriad of developments, this beach has plenty of activities ranging from sightseeing to sea diving that keep you hooked to the entirety of your sojourn.

Besides that, the area is home to St. Thomas College, which is one of the most prestigious primary and secondary schools in all of Sri Lanka. Quite close to the suburb and its suburban setting are a number of popular tourist spots such as Dehiwala Zoo and Attidiya Bird Sanctuary. There is, of course, no dearth of hotels in ‘Galkissa’ at any time of the year. With so many great places to visit and a romantic backstory to boot, this place is well worth the trip.

Eat, Play, Shop and Chill at Mount Lavinia Beach

Mount Lavinia offers an array of options for all the tourists who flock to this place for a vacation. To enjoy the best tastes of Colombo, dine at some of these best restaurants that will leave you wanting for more. The Kingsbury Hospital, Rare at Residence, Ministry of Crab, Colombo 11, Curry Leaf are some of the best restaurants that offer authentic sea-food, drinks and alfresco dining. Have some of the best sundowners while watching the sunset beyond the horizon.

For the unique shopping experience, Mount Lavinia lures its visitors into a world of glitterati-flecked shops and opulent shopping malls.

      It was a great experience and hospitality provided by red global ifaz and driver manoj. Unluckyly it was a govt holiday and a festival day tat most of the shops were shut. Still Manoj took us to open shops little outside Colombo and made us shop. It was a great one day trip. I will soon take a week full Lanka trip.. Everything was good from the time receiving till the time dropping us back. Loved the one day trip in srilanka.

      Well organized. Cotyledon Tour business development manager was excellent and extremely helpful. The driver cum guide was also too good. Only change in hotel should be discussed and approval taken before affecting any changes in the originally agreed list. Whole tour full of snippets of good memory.

      It was my first experience of planning a trip through Travel triangle. I had a great experience. Everything was managed very well. The only issue I have is that the agent assigned to me (Divya) stopped responding to my messages in the last week. I made the full payment through NEFT to travel triangle in advance hoping it would make it easier. But on the last day I found out that my agent in Lanka had not received the payment. It was just less than 24 hours to board my flight and it created a panic situation for me. I hope travel triangle does a better job next time.

We were very happy with our tour driver and guide Cheleka who has been very supportive during the travel. We had the accommodations as promised in the itenary and a cab through out the journey so was a stress free journey when it comes to planning while travelling

      Where was travel agent. Atleast a courtesy call from him we expected went wrong. Not even a call he made till our departure from Lanka. As we have trusted agent blindly keeping good faith though it is his duty to call and atleast enquire the things. Also the trip was good but wrongly planned as the places like Kandy to nuwaru eliya for seeing one place Seetha eliya traveling in a car entire day no use and nor should they suggest anybody atleast a day and night should be spend in nuwaru eliya. And again nuwaru eliya to bentota again only in-car.. common guys atleast plan properly as we too invest money for enjoying memorable holidays. Rest it was good experience rather thru travelers triangle. Have recommended friends also. But please tell agents to plan properly the precious time of traveller's Good

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      It was the first international trip planned by me & was confused with choosing location and package . One of my friend refered to go with travel traingle . When I enquired about the places I got the very good response from travel agents . But , still I had a doubt that whether I can believe those agent or not . But , based on travel traingle reviews , i chose to go with Tropical cylon . Based on my expectations , they have arrived best quote which meets all our requirements and reasonable price. More important thing is that they have adhered everything as per their commitment and itinary .particularly the guide come drivr Mr.Nipun , guided us throughout the journey and ensured everything to make our stay and journey a pleasant one & clearly understands all our needs . So , special thanks to Mr.Nipun & TC .overall it was a great journey and we al had a wonderful te at srilanka . Once again thanks to TC and travel traingle for wonderful support. Water rafting at kithulagala, stay at Kandy and grand Camilia was memorable one . Galle , bentota beach was one of the best beaches I have ever visited Trekking at sigiriya , little Adams peak and nine arch bridge was fantastic . It has more beautiful views and u can enjoy the nature to its core We had some great shopping at srilanka local bazaars , laksla and more ..
