We recently stayed at this hotel and cannot seem to fault the service or the rooms. We booked a suite which was amazing really spacious and had everything we needed including a second toilet for guest. The pool upstairs was beautiful as well with the bar. I also cannot fault the staff they were also the most helpful and also always smiling. Great value for money stay and will be returning next time

Very friendly staff!

My girlfriend and I stayed here in August 2017 for our last night before traveling home and we were overwhelmed with how friendly and accommodating all of the staff here are. It’s seems each and every person we came across would do whatever they could to make our stay in Mount Lavinia as pleasurable as possible. Most definitely the best service we’d experienced in our 2 week stay in Sri Lanka.

The hotel itself was extreamly clean and modern which you would expect from a brand new hotel. Bedroom had a sea view and was very comfortable. It also has a rooftop swiming pool, gym and great food.

Would definitely recommend!

Anarva - Siddhalepa ( a wonderful experience)

It was a short stay for me in Sri Lanka end of March 2017 and I was looking for a place for accommodation during this stay. It is not an easy endeavour to find a suitable place though we are familiar with Sri Lankan conditions. And then we found this new haven, the Anarva. In fact, it was my wife who found it and needless to say that she has a good eye for good places, and this time she proved more successful than ever!

When I arrived at this band new hotel right in the heart of the busy town of Mount Lavina, a populous Colombo suburb, I was a little bit apprehensive. However, I was proved wrong! Anarva Siddhalepa is one of the best experiences I had in holiday accommodation in my whole life.

I was greeted at the lobby by a group of staff with welcoming smiles, pleasant gestures and supportive hands and I started feeling at home straight away. Although the hotel was in the middle of a busy town, it was very quiet and peaceful inside. The room is just the right size for my needs and had all required amenities to make my stay very pleasant and comfortable. All services were functioning smoothly notwithstanding certain parts of the hotel were still under construction. There was free wifi, which is almost an essential part of life of the technologically overwhelmed world today! The food was great though the menu choice was limited due to number of guests and under the circumstances it was a great food experience with the culinary features of Sri Lanka.

The staff was always there to help in everything and I never felt for one moment that I was away from home. For me, it was a home away from home!

Keep up the good work and I am confident that Anarva Siddhalepa would become a memorable holiday experience for tourists and anyone who visits Sri Lanka in time to come.

The cleanness was the best and staff were great and they all understand english,
We booked the ANARVA hotel at the start of our journey for 2 days and 1 day for the end of our trip. We traveled to 4 cities 1-colombo 2-sigiriya 3-batticaloa 4-Ella 5-Colombo
The journey’s been the best, people are so kind and helpful (The warm blood is running through them)
The pool on the floor gives you an outstanding view over the ocean and sky ( there was some parts under construction but we used the pool any way they are making some bar next to the pool )
We forgot my girlfriend’s hat but when we came back and asking for it, the hat was ready to delivered to us
Also great spa available at the hotel with $$ fare prices and 20% discount for hotel residence.
We booked our hotel from Booking.com. unfortunately somehow TripAdvisor isn’t allowing us to book from Iran

I have stayed in this new hotel for 3 days continuously and one sperate day as well. The hotel is managed by an excellent general manager who i spoke personally Mr.Namal Withana and executive chef Mr Susil. The speciality in this hotel is that they take the guest(customers) seriously and they try to do the best they can.
The spa is well managed by proper Ayurvedic doctor unfortunately i forgot her name(sorry for that), she was exceptional in her knowledge. And the masseuse who attended to my therapy is pleasant young gentleman is very enthusiastic and energetic which made my spa sessions interesting.
Front office the young ladies who greeted me always were really entertaining and hospitable in every manner and professional.
Room condition is exactly as it describes in pictures so its amazing. Unfortunately pool was under construction by the time i was there. Mr . Tony the bell boy is very helpful at all the time. Unfortunately i cant remember every ones name. Amazing staff Amazing spa and professional management made my stay entertaining and relaxing.
