Executive with Ocean View
During our stay at Mövenpick Hotel we opted to stay in the Executive with Ocean View Room which certainly did not disappoint and was perfect for our needs. The room was extremely spacious with plenty of natural light coming in through the large bay windows which overlook the ocean front and the perfect place to watch the world go by.
The room itself comes with a king size bed which was super comfortable, with large fluffy pillows, bedside tables with lamps, a writing desk, armchairs, table, large flat screen TV, mini bar, Nespresso coffee machine and lots of luggage space.

It comes equipped with free tea & coffee making facilities, free bottled daily water, free toiletries, fresh lines, fluffy towels, plenty of power sockets, strong Wi-Fi, dressing gowns, ironing board & iron, satellite TV, air-conditioning and security safe.
The en-suite bathroom is very modern and clean with chrome, glass and mirrors. It has a ‘his & hers’ mirror and sink, a deep bath tub, rain shower and toilet with views of the ocean.
The Rooftop Infinity Pool
On the 24th floor of the hotel is the crown jewel of Mövenpick – the infinity pool! This is honestly incredible and a great place to have a refreshing dip, with ocean & city views, especially for sunset. It’s quite large, with room to get some decent laps in or if you wanted to relax you have space to do as well. Beach towels are provided for free with plenty of sun loungers to pick from.’
The Rooftop Bar
Adjacent to the infinity pool is the bar which hosts a number of cocktails, drinks and small bar snacks. This is quite a lively place in the evenings, especially around sunset and definitely the place to be to socialise and meet up with friends or hang out. There are plenty of comfortable seats and tables with great views of the ocean.
Located on the rooftop is the jacuzzi which is just to the side of the infinity pool and the bar providing more great views of the ocean, with plenty of sun loungers around it and the ultimate place to unwind and relax.
Fancy a pamper day? Then this is the perfect place to do it! Their treatments at Spa Ceylon range from full body pampering to signature royal Kandyan massages. Let the scent of lemongrass and the sight of ocean views lead you towards tranquil relaxation. Lavender, ylang-ylang and patchouli will promote that deep restful sleep you crave after an exhausting day. Perfect!
The Fitness Centre
Located on the 23rd floor, their fitness centre boasts modern exercise equipment to help rejuvenate and boost your energy levels. Whatever your preference for blowing off steam, you will definitely enjoy this state-of-the-art wellness facility.
Mount Lavinia Beach
Fancy a bit of sand and ocean to help you relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of the main city? Then this beach is only a short walk away from the hostel and is ideal for a decent beach day.
The Robata Restaurant
The Robata offers seven flavours of Asia including Japanese, Chinese, Malaysian, Indonesian, Singaporean, Korean and Thai.
From delicate Cantonese and fiery Sichuan delights to top quality sushi and steaming bowls of rib-sticking ramen, the Robata will also offer more than just delicious Pad Thai and Panang curry. Chow down on kimchi and indulge In Bulgogi or savour some spicy sambal, soupy laksa or dive into some delightful Nasi Goreng.
