Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean

The hotel

All the delights of contemporary living with the gorgeous natural beauty of southwest Sri Lanka are combined at Cinnamon Bey. This modern resort is an all inclusive haven that promises as many relaxing spa treatments as dining hang-outs, with no fewer than six eating areas from where to sate your senses. Thanks to the location right on a coral-studded shoreline, you can enjoy views of both the bay and the beach. If you prefer pampering on an even more therapeutic level, the Azmaara Spa is packed full of wraps, scrubs and manicures, as well as marvellous massage options. If you fancy exploring further afield, then there are a whole host of things to see and do, including a turtle hatchery and the UNESCO protected Galle Fort.

Me and my family stayed at the Cinnamon Bay Beruwala for 2 nights. We had a really good overall experience with the service we received from all departments of the hotel that at times they went beyond our expectations to treat us well. Although I had a minor incident with lost power to the room, maintenance staff and front desk staff were very helpful in terms attending to the issue and arranging me a new room. Staff were amazing and very helpful from the moment we arrived to the hotel. We didn't have to worry about anything. We were properly instructed about the hotel's guidelines in response to Covid 19 and we didn't have any problems throughout our stay about our health and safety. Front desk staff and F&B staff were on point whenever we requested any service and they knew what we wanted even before we think of it. I should mention that Charitha from Front desk and Amila from F&B were very helpful during our stay. We were given complementary breakfast items and given special attention as if we are their family members. We were very happy and immediately recommended few of my friends about the hotel and it's services we are getting. Breakfast buffet and dinner set menu was definitely a hit. We had room service dinner on the second night and it was wonderful. We had all the dishes delivered to the room and I should say that they everything was wonderful and my parents were happy about the food and portion size. Breakfast was amazing as well. Traditional Sri Lankan breakfast was out favourite as well as the complimentary omelettes we received during our last breakfast. Overall top quality made out from top quality chefs. We will definitely come for another round of stay in the future and will definitely recommend others to come in and enjoy a great weekend or few days away at this hotel. Thank you again. Read less

We soon realized, we were the 1st guests to arrive after the hotel was reopened due to lockdown. However, it turned out, all good as we were welcome as V.I.P guests from the check in onwards. Upgraded to a superior sea view room with flower decorations,which was delightful and special. The meals for our 2 night stay were amazing with Chef Chaminda coming over to discuss our next meal selections. Food was well presented and delicious. All fresh. Mr Niroshan was taking personal care of us and a very friendly person. Our dinner was attended to by Chameera, who i thought was one of the best waiters who ever served us anywhere in thr world.so much into detail pleasant and attentive. He will go a long way in the industry. The hotel was empty which was sad to see.But it did not dampen the excitement of the staff.Guests were coming in too. We fully enjoyed the pool and the garden. My wife was thrilled with the beach and the bay. It was sad to leave and wish we had an extra day.Dilush at the front desk who did my reservation was very sharp and friendy. We wish Cinnamon Bey all the very best as things get better. We will be coming back with our kids soon. Thank you Team for your excellent service with great attitude. Read less

Hotel had a special offer. So, there was a crowd to check in. Initially at the gate the security guard took a very long time to see whether there was a reservation made for us.

Hotel had a special offer. So, there was a crowd to check in. Initially at the gate the security guard took a very long time to see whether there was a reservation made for us. I assume that the list was not sorted according to names. At the reception there was a long queue to check in & the lady manning the desk seem to be not bothered to expedite the process we spent more than 30 minutes for the check in process. Room was not that spacious but adequate but was not the cleanliest room I have occupied. Walls had a lot of stains. Other than this the linen etc. was clean. The buffets were having quantity and variety but lacking in quality & taste. I’ve been to buffets at this hotel and all occasions have been excellent. There is a good swimming pool and a nice beach front where you can walk freely about. Read less

Memorable Stay at Cinnamon Beruwala I stayed at the hotel for a total of 2nights on Full-Board basis. Stayed in a room in the with a spacious balcony overlooking the beach. The stay in this property was unforgettable as I continued to work remotely with my organization throughout my stay. The room was very spacious, clean and beautifully arranged (as exactly seen in the images available on this site). The environment was so quiet with only the sound of the waves and wind from the sea to greet you when you are in the balcony. I highly enjoyed as well as appreciate the friendly service of the hotel staff. The room service provided by Janaka and Gayan, the constant care by Manager Mr. Niroshan De silva and his team mentioned here as a tribute to their hospitality and commitment. Thank you! Read less
