Excellent spacious rooms in a beautful garden with large swimming pool. The Staff was extremely friendly and the food was excellent. Great selection of dishes and also comprehensive wine list. A show in the garden by the local artists was also much appreciated, and before leaving we also witnessed a wedding!

Stayed: November 2015
Thank Ramiras

Visited this hotel during our Honeymoon & that too at New Year's eve... Some good memories:

1. Staff is very friendly.. on my prior request, they decorated the room with flowers.
2. Habarana is right in the middle of cultural triangle - Anuradhapura, Pollonaruva & Sigiriya. One can do a 2-3 day tour & cover all these places from here..
3. New Year's eve was a special occassion the hotel had a band playing on new year's eve with some really nice songs and took audience requests as well.

Do walk down the resort, its quite a big property with serene environment

My husband and I stayed at the Cinnamon Lodge for 3 nights as part of an eight night tour around the beautiful island of Sri Lanka. The hotel was superb, the rooms really clean, spacious and beautifully decorated in a colonial style. The food at the hotel's buffet was excellent and the service from the staff superb. We had a small problem with a blocked drain on our first evening, we mentioned this to reception on our way to dinner and by the time we'd finished dinner it had been completely sorted and our bathroom completely cleaned. The hotel location is perfect for exploring Sigariya, Dambulla and Polyanaruwa (forgive any spelling errors!).
We would definitely recommend this as a base location for exploring the cultural triangle.

Let's start with the LOCATION, 15min drive from Anuradhapura, this hotel is a perfect place to stay and to see the environments. Of all the places I sow in Sri Lanka, Anuradhapura is for sure the most impressive one! You can’t miss it! Consequently, you can’ miss this hotel!
Coming back from a long day of visits and having such a peaceful, comfortable place to stay was a real joy.

The hotel is surrounded by a huge, wonderful PARK, kept with the most attentive care!
The hotel is in colonial style, with mostly 2 floor buildings. In order to go to your room you will cross a part of the park, with tropical trees and small lagoons.

RESTAURANT is at open air, as often happens in Asia, with a high roof to protect you in case of rain. International dishes are perfectly cooked, but I strongly recommend to try also local food, as it is amazing and tasty! I never thought I could eat lentils curry for breakfast … but it was delicious! I also cannot avoid to say that for dinner here I had the BEST SWORDFISH I HAVE EVER EATEN in my life … and please note that I was born and grew up by the sea!

ACCOMODATION, is comfortable and clean, at the level of a 4*… just be careful not to leave the door of your room open too long as the hotel is immerged in nature and you can find some of the wild life “friends” living in the park, in your room! Personally I had to deal with two lizard … but it was my fault, as I left the door open for a while!

SERVICE is good! Staff is professional and lovely at the same time. Waiters are dressed with skirts as per the local use… and two of them lost a lot of time to explain me how to dress a local skirt … which is not easy at all!

Finally, I would go back to Sri Lanka even just for this hotel!!!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon. There are a lot of rooms but you're not too far from the restaurant and pool. It was a buffet for each meal and the choices were great. There are many curry options but also the Western foods as well. We had a slow wifi connection in our room (free).
