We have been to Cinnamon lodge Habarana several times before and had great experiences. This time too was a very enjoyable stay. The rooms are well maintained and have a very cozy atmosphere. The location is so tranquil ,beautiful & relaxing. Food was awesome as usual with a great choice and taste. Staff are amazing, very specially the house keeping staff , the restaurant staff and the Chefs, always ready to help and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable...
Enjoyed our stay very much and was sad to leave as usual !

Experienced both pros and cons. But the overall experience was good.

The attempt to book the hotel over the phone was a total disappointment. I called the hotel three times and every single time I was informed that there aren't any rooms left on the particular day. But once I contacted their head office in Colombo just a few minutes later I was able to book a room and I was informed that there were quite a few rooms left. I booked a triple room. But all the amenities except the linen was only set for two. (i.e glasses, mugs, soap, tea & coffee). Tooth brushes were not found in the room and had to give a couple of phone calls to get them. These certainly were very minor issues, but it's not what I'd expect from the hotel that was awarded the best five star hotel in the country a couple of years ago.

The food was good. The oriental corner at the buffet was impressive. But most other five star hotels in the country seem to offer better buffets.

The rooms were very clean and spacious. The same would apply for the bathrooms. loved the mild cinnamon scent in the room and the bathroom. I was really impressed with the architecture and the gardens in the hotel. There were massive trees of various species all over the gardens which made the whole place pretty shady.

The staff was really friendly and efficient. The overall experience at the hotel was very good but I expected pretty much every thing except the cleanliness to be slightly better than this given that this was ranked #2 in "Tripadvisor travelers' Choice, best 25 hotels in Sri lanka".

Room Tip: Stayed in a superior room. But felt like the extra 2000 bucks for a deluxe room would be worth.

All the staff members were attentive and try their best to ensure you have a memorable stay here.

Thank you Cinnamon Lodge for making us feel at home.

My wife and myself chose this hotel as the 3rd destination in our honeymoon and we soon regretted not having come here earlier. The rooms were cozy, the staff were warm and welcoming, the food was amazing, and the buffet service was simply beyond words. You name it, they'll get it for you. The services of the head chef Mr Rajapaksha is outstanding whilst he and his staff went out of the way to make our visit special despite having a packed house. Certainly a treat to have been there, you'd certainly get more than what you paid for, and a confirmed re-visiting destination for us.

Room Tip: The rooms are located as individual cabana's. So chances are that you might have to end up walki...

This was the first of several hotels in the Cinnamon chain that we stayed at during our trip to Sri Lanka, and it did a good job setting high expectations for the rest of our trip. The rooms are large, comfortable, and clean, and the breakfast and dinner buffets are excellent. The restaurant itself overlooks the pool, and a large variety of birdlife can be viewed while dining. The town of Habarana is well placed for the sites of the Cultural Triangle (Dambulla, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya).

There were only two downsides, neither which really detracted from the visit. The first is that the path to the restaurant could be quite dark in some areas when walking to and from the room in the evening. The second is that we had bad luck with wake up calls: the first morning we received one that we didn’t request, the second morning we never got the one we did request.

Overall, however, it was a great stay, and my husband is still raving about the buffet!
