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.

I visited this hotel today with my wife and three kids (all below 6 years) for two nights stay. Since my wife is breat feeding to my daughter, i went for dinner tod eve with my eldest son and wanted to send me wife's buffet meal to the room 102. But SURPRISINGLY the hotel main restaurent staff was not corporative to send her meal and came out with various excuses at the outset. Later one Restaurent Manager called Prasad came and finally agreed to send it to room with reluctant. But finally the order was delivered to room (which is 5 rooms away from main restaurent) 1.30 hour later purposely. The so called Manager Prasad was purposefully delayed the order to be delivered to my room bcoz of their lazy and ignorent attitudes. Its so pathetic to see the service level of the hotel restaurent staff over this minor request and how they reacted after that. Finally i had to inquire more than 3 times for the delay in delivering this meal to my room and even for such inquries they didnt reply positively. Such a bad experience from poor restaurent staff in a star class hotel. Truly disappointed. Read less

I was visiting Sri Lanka for just a week and needed a holiday away from my short holiday- hence picked Cinnamon bey as it had good reviews. I visited with my mom and sister and I must say, I was not disappointed. The overall experience was really good. The food was so amazing, and the service was great too. The staff made us feel so welcomed. I must mention about Karunarathne- the capton at the BUFE. He was such a nice person and since I haven’t had “ polos maaluwa’ in a long time, he promised some polos for lunch and he kept his promise. Now that’s great customer service. The rest of the staff was really helpful and kind too. The hotel was clean overall and the pool area too. Nice green area to sit and relax and not just a pool and a hotel. Myself, family and friends will certainly be back! 🙂 Read less

We spent a night at Cinnamon Bey and had a whale of a time. Apart from an excellent view of the Ocean and beachside activities, we took a boat ride to the island and climbed up the lighthouse for a panoramic view of the ocean and coastline.

It’s been a long two days with a wow service which We’ve never been given by the whole staff. Specially the location should be remembered it touched our hearts strictly with a beach view. Very especially, credit goes to Miss Rochelle Jayamanna and we were amazed the way you treated and the hospitality as well... thank you very much...

We booked 4 rooms for us with our 2 children we had some difficulty in the begining with the type of available beds which was resolved quickly. Beautiful surroundings greenery and delicious food. All commendations to the hotel staff for always ready to help. Cinnamon was recommended by our friends who stayed there during march and we feel its worth staying. Urein, Sankani, Thamasha are the best employees we want to commend. Mike is a outstanding gm who has this team, Mike helped us a lot dueing our stay and we did not expect the gm to spare so much of time with us. Sankani knows how to take very good care of customers. Room service food, fire and ice all best. Monday has interesting theme dance during dinner. For delux room occupant they have a beautiful lounge, for others have to pay $25. Relaxed place. Recommend to stay for family and especially for small kids coz they have a kid’s play area as well. Read less
