Cinnamon Bey

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.

Though the hotel and service was very good did not feel safe during the stay. There were several muslim ladies wearing burka and covering face with masks. When complained to the security officer he sed he is helpless and asked me to make the complain to the front office. They were also helpless and seems hotel management was not bothered since one of the person from management was a Pakistani. After what happened during the easter sunday it is illegal to cover face wearing burkas. But just accommodate few extreme muslims from Arab cinnoman bay has neglected the security of all other people staying at the hotel. Read less
