Cinnamon Lodge was an excellent spot either to unwind or as a central point in the Cultural Triangle.

The actual hotel has superb and friendly service. The grounds are inhabited by many different monkeys and lovely birds on the lake. There is also a very interesting organic garden and butterfly area.

I was not well on the day I arrived and they called a doctor who was brilliant. She arrived within 20 minutes and didn't cost much either !

The food is mainly through buffet at breakfast and evening meal. The evening meal is a little overpriced in my opinion although you can eat in a different restaurant off a la carte more cheaply. I also think the hotel should adopt a strict no feeding policy as it encourages monkeys and giant squirrels whilst eating in the day.

We found a chap at the entrance to take us to Sigirya on a tuk tuk who was absolutely brilliant. He stopped on the way to show us all kinds of creatures - water monitors, tortoise, chameleons and best of all a baby elephant and its mother. It was like a safari in itself. He also introduced to an excellent guide at Sigirya and the very best Ayurvedic massage place I have experienced which is very close to the entrance. His telephone no is 077 127 8352. He also acted as a driver to take us to our next destination.

All in all, CL was very good indeed.

We cannot agree with you more when you say – A great place to unwind! Thank you for the time taken to post this review.
As you discovered, we are quite fortunate to have a wonderful staff who are so willing to extend their warmest hospitality and the widespread yet breathtaking grounds ensures the guests nothing but the best.
Although there are so many activities to enjoy right here on the resort, I am happy to hear that you took a few trips off-property to visit some historical sites.
We hope you will continue to make our resort your vacation destination.

Thank you!

I visited this hotel with my husband, our two small children and my parents. The standard room was spacious and very comfortable, The decor is beautiful and inviting. Details such as a cinnamon scented air-freshener added to the overall experience. The breakfast buffet was amazing -- offering a wide variety of traditional Sri Lankan dishes, as well as Western options. The dining area is open and truly makes one feel as if they were enjoying the outside. The staff was friendly and responded in a timely and courteous manner. My only regret was not staying longer! A marvelous hotel with amazing accommodations.

I visited to this hotel with new set of friends during Srilankan New year season and stayed at for two nights. I consider this hotel as a one of the top rated hotel in srilanka.

As i notice the rooms(Delux) are large and comfortable compare to other hotels i have visited. Hotel is surrounded by a lake! and full of amazing wildlife. the food is awesome and staffs are very helpful!

Most importantly daily you will get couple of water bottles!! When considering the prices of beverages are bit expensive!

If you are visting here you have lot of option to travel around including sigiriya, Elephant Park, Dhambula cave temple and so on!!

As per my personal feeling, this hotel is positioned at a perfect location, where you can consider this hotel as a center point to many great destinations such as Trincomalee, Batticaloa, Pasikudah etc.
It takes few minutes to reach Ritigala, Sigiriya, Minneriya National Park and Kaudulla National Park.
The rooms are average in size. The lake was dry during our stay, but it gives a great view. Good food and nice service.

This is my third visit and it was as good as the previous two visits. Since I am a repeater they also gave a 20% discount on the rate. This was given on the initial call it self by the receptionist who took the call and I am impressed that the management has empowered the first point of contact to do this. If he had said I will check and get back to you it would not have been as impressive as offering the discount straight away.

My wife and I stayed at the Cinnamon Lodge for three nights in April at the start of a tour of Sri Lanka. We consider it the best hotel we visited. The rooms are large and comfortable and spread around the hotel grounds. The grounds themselves are breathtaking and full of wildlife (makaks; monkeys; chipmunks; giant squirrels; kingfishers; herons etc etc). The food is excellent and the chefs ever ready to give helpful advice. The staff are attentive without being intrusive. All in all a superb hotel.
