210 years of history, colonial heritage, and the legacy of romance has made Mount Lavinia Hotel a preferred venue for weddings throughout generations. The signature Empire Ballroom has now re-opened to couples following recent restoration.
The magnificent Empire Ballroom, which depicts the colonial heritage of the hotel is the signature banquet hall at Mount Lavinia Hotel. It accommodates up to 400 guests including space for the poruwa, band stand and a separate enclosure for the buffet. The high ceiling with the grand chandelier and tall white pillars, which resonate the legacy of colonial architecture, are the heritage of the Governor’s Mansion. The elevated ministerial gallery can seat a small orchestra overlooking the guests, adding to the elegance of the Ballroom.
Mount Lavinia Hotel’s fame for being a culinary experience is one of the reasons for couples to choose the hotel for their special day.
