    Serenity, nicely structured brown brick cottages,wooden ceilings, birds chirping, close to beach.no external disturbances.

    beware of mosquito. buy an all out mosquito repellent.

    The rooms are large and clean, they are located in a nice large garden, something that is very rare to find in Colombo. The beach is just 100 meters away. Value for money especially now prices in Colombo have gone up too much

    There was no internet, but I brough my dongel and that all worked fine.

    Although Rivi Ras Hotel - Mt. Lavinia is away from city centre and a little far from Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo, the first time I saw the pictures from the website, I like to see it for myself. With the sea and beach in the background, it is conducive to relaxation and contemplation; however, lots of features need improvement to make it a popular hotel and resort, especially the landscaping. Breakfast is good enough, considering that it is in Sri Lanka, but there's possibility in improving it by having a little of bacon or ham, fruit juice and cereal. The hotel staff are somehow shy to speak to visitors but they are warm and nice Sri Lankan people. La Langousterie Seafood Restaurant on the beach is simply nice and their service is very good.

    Rivi Ras Hotel is good enough for tourists who need a break away from the hassles of the city. With the beach and sea in the background, the location is conducive to peace and quiet moments. What makes it popular probably is that, it is along the same beach line as the other hotels and resorts. Except for the mosquitoes, I will recommend this simple hotel/resort to friends who would like to visit Mt. Lavinia. The inclusive breakfast is not bad at all considering that it is in an Asian country.

    We stayed in a chalet type of room.room was comfortable.ate in the restaurant and food was ok.nothing special.we had travelled around sri lanka for 3 weeks so had stayed in 8 different hotels.not one of the best.nit good value for money.

    the hotel has a railway line infront about 30 feet away.trains start at 4.30am and run every 20mins till 10.30 a nightmare.hard to relax far too noisy.also to get to the beach and hotel restaurant you hsve to cross the railway line.beach is not a beautiful beach and the locals are all around bothering you to buy stuff.they even csme into the grounds which really snnoyed us.choose somewhere else.but the train track runs the whole lengh of the coast so a hotel near the beach is not very relaxing.plus nothing much to see in the surrounfing area.a dissapointment really

    The location is cool, but the service and facility sucks!

    Customer service is poor and value for more was zero. I cant believe i spent $70 per night for an hotel worth only $20 by comparison to countries like Malaysia. The receptionist cheated me with the foreign exchange rate. He charged me @135 instead of 128 to change from rupee to USD. Am upset about this. Also, the receptionist made u pay ridiculous sum for simple free stuff like water, I was charged LKR140 for a small bottle of water!

    Almost nothing. This hotel is too expensive if I compare price and facilities available with any good Best Western Hotel's in Europe.

    Almost everything is poor. 1. Staffs are not well aware of tourist infos. 2. No internet or Wi Fi. 3. Railways' sound disturbs sleep. 4. Hotel is charging Srilanka rupees 112 for 500ml water that has Max Retail Price 35 Srilankan rupees 4. Bathrooms have no shampoo and curatins. 5. Inadequte light and plug points in room

    location. very close to the beach.

    next to railway track. in night it seems that the train is just next to your room. no phone in room to contact any person from the hotel. room very spacious but dirty . being next to trees, donot be surprised if you find lizard in your room.

    Security was excellent we felt safe with the presence of 24/7 security guards The reception were not so friendly but all other staff (e.g the room attendants. their Manager and the gardener) were all very friendly and very helpful. They made our stay enjoyable. We loved the garden

    We enjoyed the garden very much and it was great we had a balcony (or veranda to sit on as we were on the ground floor). It would be great if there were more comfortable chairs to sit on whilst on the balcony as we spent a lot of time there. It would also be great if there was a better table on the balcony as we were able to have breakfast there.The breakfast was great however the table was too small.
