The easiest and cheapest way is to pre-arrange an airport transfer with us; alternatively you will find taxi's in arrivals at the airport; or if you're more adventurous you could take public transport to Colombo and from there, take bus 100 or 101 and ask to get off at 'The Lion Pub' Mount Lavinia. ( Every bus conductor knows the 'Lion Pub' ) . Cross over to the Lion Pub , look right you'll see the Queen's Cafe 50 meters ahead of you. At the Queen's Cafe turn left on to Beach Road. Walk down beach road and turn into the 3rd lane on the left which is ' DE SARAM ROAD' . Follow this lane around 2 corners and the first turn on your right is 'SAMUDRA MAWATHA' and No.6A is around 50 meters ahead on your right.

Located Near

Local amenities include beach location, shopping and eateries within 2 minutes walk as well as easy access by public transport to all areas of interest on the island. Mount Lavinia beach is the centre of Colombo's vibrant night life if you're looking for pubs, restaurants, dancing and all the groovier side of life!

If you prefer a quieter setting away from the hustle and bustle, you have your own private garden area with outside patio where you can chill to your heart's content.
