Cinnamon Lodge

about cinnamon lodge, cultural triangle

Surrounded by three nature reserves-Ritigala, Minneriya and Kaudulla, Cinnamon Lodge is set amongst lush vegetation, offering guests the opportunity to cycle, stroll or enjoy a picnic in its grounds.

Originally a transit stopover for visitors to Sri Lanka's east coast, Cinnamon Lodge has since evolved into a resort of its own. This is an excellent and luxurious base from which to visit the Cultural Triangle with Sigiriya, (25 minutes away) and Kandy, Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa (around two hours away).

The Lodge is beautifully decorated, with architecture based on the ancient Ritigala Forest Monastery in Habarana.
