Cinnamon Lodge

Welcome to a charming resort set in the little town of Habarana, located at the heart of Sri Lanka's world famous cultural triangle of Kandy-Anuradhapura-Polonnaruwa. Explore the glorious past of our country from a hideaway where history, time and tradition meet. Make delightful discoveries in over 27 acres of resplendent beauty, shielded by over 1700 tall trees, surrounded by three nature reserves-Ritigala, Minneriya and Kaudulla. Unearth the endless possibilities of a place where you choose what to do and where you want to do it.

Gaze into Sri Lanka's fascinating history as you visit nearby Sigiriya, the masterpiece of construction that once literally housed a palace in the sky. Or find yourself in our forested grounds. Marvel at the splendid golden rock temple at Dambulla. Re-discover Polonnaruwa the ancient ruined city. Meditate beneath the Bo tree at Anuradhapura, the first kingdom of the island. Ride an elephant or trail one of the 138 species of birds that have been identified here. Feed the resident squirrels, so tame they will eat out of your hands. Experience comfort that feels like home.

As you sink into a deep chair and gaze at Nature's canopy of clear sky, we invite you to tell us...

Wander down meandering forested paths to your very own chalet. Discover tranquility in the midst of lush greenery. Luxuriate in an exquisite combination of old traditions and modern comfort and experience comfort that feels like home.

All our rooms and suites are located on the ground and first floor level of chalets set by the side of a small man-made lake in a layout based on the ancient Ritigala Forest Monastery. Relax in a lounge chair as you drink in the beauty of the water lilies in the lake. Order a soft goose down feather pillow to snuggle into as you sleep, or if you prefer, a contour pillow that supports your head and neck. Make yourself a cup of coffee or raid the mini-bar in your room as you let the serenity of nature soothe you.

A morning swim, an evening jog or a bicycle-ride in our grounds with just Nature for company... we offer you ample opportunities to energize your day. Go on a safari to encounter magnificent tuskers and migrating wings. Or set up your easel and paint a pretty picture. Start on your own magnum opus. Culture trips, picnics, safaris, balloon rides... we'll arrange them all for you.
Spend your day indulging in simple pleasures, or indulge in the pleasure of doing nothing at all.

A single malt whisky, smooth and mellow. A velvety red wine, fruity and fragrant. A fine cognac, aged to perfection. Cigars - mild, mellow, full-bodied. Home made pastas. Freshly squeezed juices. A Birdwatchers Breakfast, romantic Sunset Cocktails, high tea, barbeque dinners in the garden or on the island adjacent to it feast full of preparations - whenever, where ever, whatever - beckons.

Picturesque surroundings, nature at her glorious best, ancient heritage sites near by, traditional culture and sheer luxury come together to make the Cinnamon Lodge Habarana, a perfect venue for events.
