Lotus Grove is an enclosed housing complex in Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia which is a suburb just south of Colombo, the commercial capital of Sri Lanka.

The Lotus Grove population numbers about 482 adults and children (as of the 2004 census), with 148 houses. The first purchase of a house was in October 1994 and the first houses were occupied in late 1995 mostly in Flower Drive, one of the roads within the complex which was designed and built by Ceylinco Homes International.

At the centre of Lotus Grove is a sports complex consisting of squash, tennis, badminton courts and a gymnasium. There are two swimming pools, a kids Park and Keell's mini-supermarket.

Lotus Grove has strictly observed speed limits on the roads, and 24-hours security watching the perimeter.

Around the complex is wildlife such as water habitat birds, monitors, snakes and probably the only crocodiles living wild in Dehiwala in the lake and waterways. The Nedimala Canal passes along the northern edge of Lotus Grove and the lake on the eastern side is connected to the Weras Ganga and Bolgoda Lake in Moratuwa - there are local reports of the crocodile population infesting many of these waterways.
