Restaurants (including the food chains such as Burger King, Subway, KFC, Pizza Hut, Barista, Casserole, Queen’s Cafe etc.), pubs, clubs, cafes, pool parlors, supermarkets, convenient stores (Cargills, Keells, Arpico), chemists and modes of public transport (bus and railway) are located within walking distance.
Maritime and beach centered recreational activities such as SCUBA diving and surfing are abundant in the area. The divers’ gear shop (Island SCUBA) is 250 meters walk from the hotel.
Get yourselves indulged in the comforts of Ayurvedic spa treatment at Templers Road. Take a stroll along the beach down to Mount Lavinia Hotel, which is over 200 years old. It stands to date in its own majesty and was once home to a British Governor of Sri Lanka. Should you admire marine life, spend some time at the turtle conservation project at St. Rita Road. The Sri Lanka Air force Museum is located in Ratmalana SLAF base (6-7 km from Mount Lavinia).
