Service, food, and location!
This lodge exceeded my expectations. Big comfy bed with fluffy pillows, best food in Sri Lanka with local sourced buffet. They called to check on me after settling in, provided umbrellas, and surprised me with an artful safari display. Wish I stayed another few days. Pool and lakeside view lovely. The homemade soursop ice cream was heaven in a cone!

10/10 Exceptional

We keep going to this little gem of a place. Cinnamon Lodge has never disappointed us, the cuisine is excellent, spotless rooms in peaceful surroundings. Very helpful and courteous staff. When we booked, we had an offer of a free safari and late checkout but the hotel wasn't aware of this. Please make sure your offers are known to the hotel, so that the guests are not disappointed. We highly recommend this fabulous hotel, closer to Sigiriya rock, Polonnaruwa, Minneriya nature reserve etc. We look forward to be there again, in the near future. P.s. COVID regulations are well managed and every precaution is taken to keep the guests safe at this hotel.
