Mount LavaniaLocation: 12 kms from Colombo
Weather: Warm and Sunny

Just 12 km. south of Colombo along the road to Galle lies Mount Lavinia, the famous beach resort of Sri Lanka. It is an immediate city suburb and the beach lying alongside a wind swept headland jutting into the waters of the Indian Ocean. The Governor's House built in 1805 by Sir Thomas Maitland, now forms part of the famous Mount Lavinia Hotel. The name Lavinia was derived from a secret love affair between a British Governor and a local damsel who used to meet at the holiday house of the Governor which stood on the spot where the Mt. Lavinia Hotel is now located.
