Chocolate is one of the most popular and yummiest types of foods that will likely stay at the top of most peoples’ favourite food lists. Chocolate is something most of us have grown up enjoying, but very few of us have taken the time to learn the many facts that are associated with Chocolate. There are actually hundreds of facts that are associated with Chocolate and Mount Lavinia Hotel has indeed taken the initiative to educate us about the nutritional values of chocolate and the many ways that chocolate could be complemented with to make it the most interesting and something you literally will crave for.
‘I probably have a little every day, because I think it makes you feel good when you get some.’ Those are the words of a chocolate lover, when asked what are their premonitions on a chocolate covered month?

So we took this chocolate sentiment and created a month to totally feel good with a little bit of Mount Lavinia Hotel’s unique initiative to churn out unusual yet divine to all senses to create an unforgettable experience.
