Overlooking the Indian Ocean, the Lobby Lounge and Bar at Mount Lavinia Hotel has a fabulous view. Drinks and snacks complement the opulence of the colonial architecture of the hotel. Even though casual attire is welcomed during the day, for an evening out at the Lobby Lounge it’s worth dressing up a little to enter into the spirit of this genteel atmosphere that is almost magical with the sound of the ocean serenading in the background.

The Dining Room

An obvious name for this glass-walled cube of a restaurant in the lobby of the Cinnamon Lakeside Hotel. Meals are served as buffets, testing the ingenuity of the chefs to produce lots of different items for every meal; there is always a curry corner whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner. The food quantity and quality are impressive and whether you’re a vegetarian or not you will find something palatable. Being a buffet restaurant it is often crowded and the service is reasonably efficient, if charmless, because of the place’s popularity with determined diners serving themselves.
