Walk the halls of a Governor’s Palace that was once the centre of power and intrigue; relax in rooms that have witnessed the secrets of courtly love and adventure. One of the last enclaves of the old orient, and one of the best hotels in Colombo, the Mount Lavinia Hotel offers a selection of 210 rooms inclusive of suites; each offering a unique experience in comfort and sophistication.
The graceful elegance of a bygone era is still retained in the highly appointed rooms and suites of the Governor’s Wing, constructed in the 1930’s as an addition to the original colonial building dating back to the 1800’s. Enhanced with the natural warm glow of solid wood and the calming embrace of natural shades, the Governor’s Wing provides a regal and secluded haven of splendid quietude for the discerning traveller.
Majestically overlooking the shimmering turquoise waters of the vast Indian Ocean, embroidered with white ribbons of waves stretching far into the distance and with breathtaking views of the sweeping bay of golden sands and tall exotic palms of Mount Lavinia’s celebrated paradise beach, the Governor’s Wing is an idyll of hushed and mellowed luxury.
With antique period furniture and wooden floors immerse you in the hotel's rich history.
