We immediately fell in love with the bungalow layout of rooms. The staff made us feel welcome immediately. The head chef at the restaurant went out of his way to explain the exquisite food and made us try his favorites! Thumbs up, everything we tried was delicious. It is a real pity we are only staying for two nights but... More

The Cinnamon Lodge Habarana came to us an pleasant surprise. The property is on a 20 acre land which houses elephants, an organic farm, a pond, a massive swimming pool and very nice restaurant and bar, a decent spa and several villa. If you are looking for a modern hotel, please don't come here. This is a old property and... More

Our room was showing its age a little but this didn't detract from the ambience. The air com was not working properly and there were no instructions even the staff didn't know. Oh well, that's travel for you.The dining room overlooked the pool and there was great entertainment watching the squirrels. There was a band of naughty monkeys keeping us... More

Stayed for 1 night in a little lodge type room. A bit dated but was a large size & clean. Loved the nature around us from monkeys to squirrels to lizards. Venues are nice with a couple of restaurants & a bar. You can stroll around the lake & look at the wildlife or chill out by the pool. There... More

This was probably our best stay in the cinnamon group. Our lodge was on the edge overlooking the elephant rides! Lodge was well equipped with comfy beds. The large bathroom (the only one we stayed in that had a bath and a shower) did have a couple of trails of ants, but they didn't bother us, we left them alone,... More
