“Very nice spot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Location is wonderful! the internal lake and surroundings are magical. We spent there 2 nights, it's been a perfect base for our visits to Polonnaruwa and Sigirya.
We enjoyed the food and the relaxed atmosphere. Staff was really friendly and helpful (they even wrote CIAO in Italian with flowers on our bed).
Definitely worth a stay.Only concern one night we had like 10 stray dogs barking and howling outside our lodge but I guess it was only an unfortunate event.

We stayed in cinnamon lodge Habarana, visited cinnamon Wild in Yala, Cinnamon Citadel in Kandy & they are all great! Cinnamon Lodge has a great area for walking, there's a lot to do in the hotel. Nice food, friendly personnel, rooms are great( with lizards though, that are inevitable anywhere in Sri Lanka). Pool clean, well maintained.we tried the Balinese massage& scrub Spa& were happy with it. Very romantic dinner options! Very interesting tour for bird watching& boat ride on the lake. Very good travel agents, that gave us a great driver to take us around. Highly recommend to everybody!

We liked the location and the general amenities.
BUT they refused to provide us with a cake on my son's birthday, much to our disappointment. This simple request has never been refused at any other hotel.

Staff with blank looks on their faces, not friendly and morose looking.

Room Tip: avoid upstair rooms

Despite being part of a big hotel chain, it is worth staying here for the fabulous vast grounds and lake, quite unlike any other hotel grounds. A wander around the lakeside early evening is recommended and we enjoyed meeting and talking to some locals out on their catamaran. We watched elephants on opposite side of lake. Plenty of monkeys to keep you entertained. Watch out for the guy with a shanghai. The pool here is large and clean but its a pity guests aren't offered drinks/snacks while relaxing. Buffet choices at the restaurant were extensive and the dessert room impressive, although quite expensive by Sri Lankan standards. Staff were generally slow to carry out requests, but the rooms were comfortable and clean and smelt deliciously of cinnamon.

Stayed two nights here, and wished it could have been longer. The hotel complex is on the shore of the lake set amongst woodland. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The variety of food on offer in the restaurant was superb - especially the sweets! We stayed in a spacious ground floor room of a villa which had lots of little luxuries and a great shower room. The swimming pool was lovely, especially after a hot day on safari. We took two trips, both organised for us through the Nature Trails office in the hotel - the nature ramble round the lake as well as a safari to see the elephants in the Kaudulla National Park. We also took a trip to Polonnaruwa to see the ancient sacred city. The hotel is a good base for visiting the sights within the Cultural Triangle. We will definitely be staying here on our next visit.

The lodges are modern, comfortable and spacious and the hotel grounds and the lake are beautiful. We had a great stay. The service, food and drinks were excellent and the pool area is a perfect spot to relax after a big day out. We stayed for 2 nights while visiting sygiria rock and dambulla etc. I would have liked to stay one more night just to relax at the hotel for a little as it was such a nice place to be. So far it is the nicest place we have stayed on the trip and i think it will stay in 1st place (still travelling). Would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone.
