Where does one begin when it comes to describing the Lodge! Absolutely wonderful facility with great amenities, very attentive and friendly staff, soothing decor, exactly what I'd expect from an entity belonging to the Cinnamon Hotels brand. The location is first-class, everything worth seeing in the Cultural Triangle is really close-by. And if one doesn't want to leave the luxury of the hotel, then there's plenty to do within the hotel grounds itself. I've stayed at the Lodge several times now. I'm Sri Lankan myself but living abroad and I usually bring home my foreign friends during the summer vacations. It is such a pleasure to stay at the Lodge because I now know for a fact that my friends and I will be warmly welcomed, pampered and well looked after. Another huge plus for me are the green practices that the hotel abides by - it's a much welcome initiative, especially in a country like Sri Lanka with nature abound which must be looked after and protected.

We chose the Cinnamon Lodge, Habarana not only for it's facilities, but also because of it's position in relation to all the historic sites in central Sri Lanka.

From the moment we had booked,
(direct with the hotel), everyone, from The General Manager downwards did their utmost to ensure that we had a happy and memorable stay.

We have been travelling all our married live and I can honestly say that the staff at the Cinnamon Lodge are the most helpful and friendliest people we have ever come across.

Always a smile, always genuine warmth. Flowers and fruit awaited us in our wonderful room, and on the morning of our 40th Wedding Anniversary all the restaurant staff gathered and presented us with a beautiful cake!, it really was most humbling.

The food in the restaurants is varied and high class, the swimming pool is magical with tropical birds flying overhead.
The grounds , which over look a huge lake are restful and relaxing.

If you are planning a visit to Sri Lanka this great hotel should be on your list..

It's the grounds and wildlife that made this work for us together with the low rung staff who were all great. Don't think anyone in management deemed it worthwhile to offer a welcome.
Monkeys and squirrels worth the room rate alone.
Walks through the Eco farm and by the lake were wonderful but it lacked that extra personal touch which latterly the Jetwings Lighthouse in Galle provided in bucket loads!t

We stayed for one night as part of a tour of Sri Lanka. Checking in was so very easy and then we were taken to our room by a member of staff who also took time to explain the layout of the grounds, unfortunately we did not get a lot of time to explore. The room was spacious and the interior design was lovely, the bathroom was also a good size with a separate bath and shower, and was all immaculately clean. We ordered room service which arrived within good time and we couldn't fault the food. The evening buffet and breakfast, there was so much selection of food and again the staff were very attentive.

My partner and I stayed here in early June 2013, and was pleasantly surprised to the quality of the hotel. We booked last minute (on the day) and was able to get a beautiful sweet for a quarter of the usual price.

Al le carte restaurant, The Lotus, was amazing, using organic ingredients grown on resort premises. We also had room service from Veranda restaurant which was not as good (but perhaps related to meal choice).

The location is good for the ancient cities!

Activities were good. I thoroughly enjoyed a private yoga session by the lake.

Well worth exploring the resort grounds as there is lots of little spots to sit and enjoy. Absolutely stunning surrounds.

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.
