Mount Lavinia Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 50 photos

As one of my Sri Lankan friends liked to sing on our occasional karaoke nights in Mount Lavinia (apologies to the original!),

Take me home,
Country Road,
To the place I belong.
Mount Lavinia,
In Sri Lanka,
Take me home,
Country Road.

And it's true - Mount Lavinia on a Sunday morning feels like a second home. Whether it's hanging out on the public beach with some 'bites,' a couple of bottles of arrack and a cricket bat; or sat by the pool sipping lime juice in the gorgeous hotel; or even chilling out alone on the hotel's luxurious private beach, Mount Lavinia on a Sunday is a great place to be.

It's only a short ride out of the city and the towers of Colombo Fort are easily seen on a clear day, but once you hit the beach it feels like you're a hundred miles down the coast.
