I was slightly confused about where to post this review as after looking at some of the photo's and reviews for The Lodge, Habarana, this was the same hotel that we stayed at, but it was called Cinnamon Lodge.
Whatever- this is a lovely hotel - it reminded us of ancient temple grounds.Everything was tranquil , quiet and serene.
The reception area was open and airy and the accomodation is in two storey chalets in beautiful surroundings.
The hotel sits on the egde of a lake in extensive grounds where numerous creatures frequent- monkeys, monitors, birds, sqirrels etc.
Our rooms were spacious with huge beds and we could pick what sort of pillows we preferred.Robes and slippers were provided as were an ironing board and umbrellas.
The shower rooms were very modern - big walk in showers with black floor tiles and nice toiletries such as toothbrushes and lovely cinnamon toothpaste( wish I had bought some to bring home!).
On our last night the room attendant had arranged flowers to spell out 'Good Luck'.
The food was good and we especially liked the desserts. These were in a separate glass room and were presented like works of art- they tasted pretty good too.
The pool was so inviting we were sad that we only had the chance to use it once!
When we were leaving after breakfast we could hear beautiful haunting flute playing- but it wasn't 'piped' music it was a flautist palying on the balcony.
There were so many lovely extra touches to this hotel that made it our favourite during our stay in Sri Lanka.
We would love to stay here again!
