It is an understatement to say that www.mountlaviniahotel.lk has been successful at the Best Web awards. In fact since the Best Web competition was launched in 2010, the website has been completely dominant. In both the editions of the Best Web awards, in 2010 and 2012, the site clinched the gold awards in the overall and corporate categories.
After winning the awards in 2012, the General Manager of Mount Lavinia Hotel, Mr. Anura Dewapura said,
“We have come a long way and this is due to the unwavering support of my team who has been the livewire of our success. Winning this award is a major accomplishment for us. When joining the hotel, one of my main priorities was to upgrade our existing website; while we’ve refined the design, cleaned up the layout, improved ‘search’, expanded the journalistic mission, the real change is in the approach to make it user friendly and to help readers quickly and easily make sense of Mount Lavinia Hotel”.
Mr. Sisil Tharanga, the IT manager of Mount Lavinia Hotel also shared his views on winning the Best Web awards.

I am very proud of the fact that we have been able to prove that initiatives of this nature can be done successfully through proper planning and organization.”
“The objective of the Mount Lavinia Hotel website is to directly engage with the public.A visitor to www.mountlaviniahotel.lk is given a small sampling of what he will enjoy if he chooses to stay at the hotel; a prospective guest can learn all he needs to know and the 24 hour ‘quick response marketing team’ makes sure that all inquiries are answered swiftly”
“In many ways, our new website admirably complements our overall vision, which is to be the premier colonial heritage hotel in the region”, Mr. Tharanga concluded.
