                    We had an exceptional time at Cinnamon Lodge Habarana - the facilities, grounds, food and staff were excellent! Huge thank you to Gayan, Cinnamon Lodge's nature specialist whose guidance and knowledge about the birds and elephants made our visit to the Minneriya even more special than it already was. We would absolutely recommend Cinnamon Lodge for anyone visiting Sigiriya and the national parks near Habarana. I wish we were back there already!

                    Do not visit this hotel we had a terrible experience. Beware of staying at this hotel, we had a really bad experience from the moment we checked in. Consider staying at somewhere other than cinnamon hotels.

                    Beautiful place for relaxing, plenty space in between small cottages ”

                    Took so long for check in and staff were trying to get signatures of all guests in the group which consumes more time rather than just getting the signature of person who book the rooms. However place was fantastic as it situated in a rural land and ampule space to walk or jog. Nice lake near by and very relaxing. Staff very friendly. Buffet can be a bit pricy compared to local restaurants around for more authentic local experience. Safari can be organised to the national park near by. Price we got was super cheap and can’t fault anything really. Room was clean and super big.

                    I was very very surprised to note the monkeys within the hotel boundaries and specially the "faeces" (monkey shit) everywhere (on the walk ways, on roofs, roofs, everywhere) and the singe was nasty. Further, the trees near the pool (royal palm) was infested with parrots at night and morning their droppings were evident near the pool and in the pool and the combination of the two smells made us loose our appetite. This is s very serious health hazard and the management has to look into this as if animal faeces gets into a wound, or digested while in the pool, it can be deadly. The hotel is fabulous no doubt but the serious health issue should be addressed immediately.

                    This is my first trip to Srilanka and i came across reviews recommending Cinnamon Lodge habarana. Hence, i give it a try. The location is about 5-10min drive from Habarana train station. Upon arrival, we are greeted by their friendly staff and served with a welcome drink each. Rooms are clean and well-managed, it comes with a very spacious bathroom (with bath tub). The food is value for money as well. will definitely recommend this place to others.

                    This is a very lovely hotel in a beautiful setting on a lake with gardens, ponds and trees all around. The rooms are spread out around the gardens and are very spacious and nicely decorated. The food is delicious and the staff are very friendly and efficient. We had a special contemporary Sinhalese meal outside next to the pond. The meal was fantastic! A real highlight and even more special was the chef came out to greet us and then took us on a tour of the kitchens! Very impressive. There are a lot of mosquitos here but that is to be expected when you are located on a lake. Take your aeroguard and enjoy the serenity!

                    Dated hotel”

                    Dated hotel, needs modernisation, my room had an ant and beetle issue I was moved on request only after I was told the hotel was full, but then management saw ants on my bed also. They advertise afternoon high tea but when you go to take it the restaurant no longer functions as it’s been closed down. WiFi is also an issue with the system logging you out each day. The management suggested their food and beverage manager speak about their offer but they never arrive - all in all an average stay

                    Beautiful hotel, rammed full of very large and boisterous coach partiies”

                    This is a beautiful property in a very good location. However it caters to very, very large coach parties. 250+ coach party guests when we stayed. All of whom arrive on masse. The buffet was reminiscent of queuing for school diners, and there were insufficient staff to manage the number of loud and boisterous guests. The limited selection at breakfast unsurprisingly catered for guests from China - based on the clientele. If you can put up with screaming children, chaos and a holiday camp atmosphere this is the very place for you! Such a shame as the hotel rooms, built as villas in serene grounds with a rural setting are well thought out and spacious. Also be aware if you book a room with a balcony there is no Tudor furniture so you cannot sit out due to the large troops of naughty monkeys terrorizing the place!

                    Great for kids!”

                    After 10 days of guest houses, this was a treat for the whole family. The grounds are beautiful! My daughter loved chasing the monkeys around the property. It is wise to heed the resort's recommendation to keep items off your balcony; the monkeys are very sneaky (but cute!) The pool and food were also fabulous and the staff were friendly and attentive. The resort is a good base to see highlights of the cultural triangle.

                    Hesha and chef have spoilt us with their outstanding service”

                    This has been one of the top 3 world hotel holiday experiences we've ever had! So much so that we stayed in Aliya resort in Sigirya afterwards for double the price but the only thing we wanted was to cancel the latter and come back to your property!!! Hesha from housekeeping deserves a promotion for his outstanding service and the chef spoilt us with his efficiently baked gluten free bread and muffins without sugar to match with all my dietary requirements! Vino has also been outstanding as I kept receiving the water and ginger lemon and mint I needed to follow my Ayurvedic treatment and the inter team communication followed up on the water I needed: I have never been so generously spoilt even though my husband loves 5-star hotels: you remain unmatched so far! Thank you so very much indeed for one of the most relaxing benevolent trees and animals setting(too bad we couldn't enjoy the nice balcony because of the traumatic monkey invasion!)& congratulations for the outstanding service!

                    October/low season prices make this resort such a great deal, exhausted from traveling around Sri Lanka this was a nice treat. The rooms are stunning, although my bathroom door didn't open properly. Amazingly comfy bed, HBO on TV, great patios, wonderful pool, and fabulous if not expensive breakfast. Just eat enough to let it pass for two meals

                    Luxurious room, peaceful location, outstanding breakfast buffet

                    We enjoyed a most comfortable and serendipitous stay at this hotel, where great attention has been paid to all aspects of guest comfort. Tasteful renovations have made the most of the beautiful and peaceful setting, and you can enjoy luxury without paying through the nose for it. Staff are really attentive and friendly. Only quibbles were that the restaurant and bar service could have been snappier and better organised, and cheaper snack dishes were lacklustre. But a message to future guests - please respect the wishes of the hotel and DON`T feed the wild animals at breakfast time!

                    Superb staff, Excellent and affordable food, Great location

                    Cinnamon is a local brand and the best luxury hotel chain in Sri Lanka. However, the 50% flashdeal made the stay very affordable. And now, even without the deal, I would definitely make a return stay at the hotel. Habarana is a great location to access the surrounding sights - Sigiriya, Dumbulla, Minneriya National Park. The staff is very personable and attentive without sounding forced. The food is also very good. Lotus is a fine dining restaurant but very affordable that I ate there every evening. There is alot of wildlife in the hotel itself!

                    The lovely friendly & helpful staff; the fantastic wild life at your door (quite literally) and the pool.

                    We had a fantastic stay, the monkeys, squirrels, lizards, birds, all sharing the property with you were fabulous to watch and interact with. Being right on the doorstep of the national park was thrilling, we saw many wild elephants on our safari trip, it was absolutely the best!!! Highly recommend this hotel.
