Mount Lavinia is a small beach town located a mere 12 km from Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka. While there are several legends about the origins of this town, one theory stands out as the most romantic. According to this story, the city is named after Lovina, a local girl who was a mestizo dancer and stole the heart of British Officer Sir Thomas Maitland in the 1800s. Due to his love for her he named his mansion Mount Lavinia House. This mansion is now the highly esteemed and internationally recognized Mount Lavinia Hotel. At the entrance of the hotel is a fountain with a statue of Lovina poised at the center. Mount Lavinia was officially recognized as a city in 1805.
Mount Lavinia Hotel features 275 rooms with top of the line luxury and amenities. Most of the rooms offer a view of the ocean and private balconies. A few of the other in room amenities include mini bars, wireless internet, satellite television, and air conditioning. Many of the hotel's services are available 24 hours a day, such as laundry, room service, and even a coffee shop.
Besides the breathtakingly beautiful beaches, Mount Lavinia Hotel also provides shopping and spa treatments. The hotel's shopping arcade boasts a wide array of shops and is located in the old wing of the hotel. Coconut Spa offers full spa treatments including massages, manicures, pedicures, and facials.
