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.

The warm smile and friendly manner of receptionist Piumi was a welcome start to a perfect three days/two nights stay at Hotel Cinnamon Bey. The restaurant staff gave a commendable service. Specially Asst. General Manager Amila and his team were attentive to the needs of all. Madu Ganga is reachable from the hotel. It is recommended guests who have a longer stay could do an excursion on the Madu Ganga (Madu River) with its many mangroves and 25 islands. Read less

This was the first time we travelled as a family with our 8 months old kid and the first time at a Cinnamon hotel. Amidst all the pandemic precautions etc they were extremely helpful to us. Charitha was the main contact person of our stay and she helped us throughout our stay from the get go coordinating everything to make it a pleasant stay for us. She helped us get a double bed for our room and even gave us an extended stay till 2pm for the checkout (She did that even before we asked for it). I would give 5 stars to the world class hospitality they provide. I would love to visit again in future for a bit longer stay. Read less
