Sri Lanka & Mount Lavinia Hotel
Karishma stated “Shresht loves Sri lanka, when he proposed he said WE are getting married in Sri Lanka, I didn’t have a choice in the matter, so we visited Sri Lanka because I have not been here and I instantly fell in love because it felt like home” and she also stated “we chose Mount Lavinia hotel specifically because we wanted a beach wedding and with all our relatives coming down we wanted to have all the functions in one venue without having to move around, because this hotel has great venues, friendly staff and a wonderful atmosphere.”
Dream Wedding
Karishma stated, “The wedding was coordinated to perfection by the banquets team who took charge and handled every little detail, the staff were helpful, the General Manager himself brought in an expert in Indian cuisine which made all the difference to our wedding. We are glad we chose MLH to celebrate our commitment to one another and hope to return to this beautiful property on our anniversary every year”

  1. We had our wedding at Mount Lavinia Hotel in July 2012 and I must say it was the best decision ever! It is an Excellent Hotel, with great service, the best food and great hospitality. Thanks to Savio, the Asst Director of Sales at MLH who convinced us to have the most important event of our life at this wonderful Hotel.

    We wanted to have a beach wedding and MLH is the only Hotel in Colombo with a private beach, so for everyone who is looking to have a beach wedding...MLH is the place in Sri Lanka. We also loved all the other venues there...The La Fontaine Room, Governors Roof Top, and my favorite...The Regency Room, that has a terrace over looking the ocean. We had booked ocean front rooms for all our guests and the view was absolutely stunning. Our guests were all very happy with the rooms and the facilities at the Hotel.

    Our wedding was a BIG success, thanks to the staff at MLH. They went out of their way to make sure we got everything we needed. All the events were planned and executed by Nimanthi, Asst Manager - Catering & Conventions. She involved herself in the wedding like a family member and took care of every little thing we needed for the events and our stay at MLH.

    As we all know, food is a very important aspect of any event. Thanks to Chef Indica and Chef Singh, the food at all our events was outstanding.

    Also, a BIG thanks to Mr Anura, the GM. Mr Anura made sure we had all the support and guidance from the team at MLH. He gave us the confidence that everything would be taken care of and we must say, he and his staff have exceeded our expectations.

    Thanks so much to the ENTIRE team at MLH for making our wedding such a success! We will always cherish our time spent at MLH and can't wait to plan our next trip there!
