Cinnamon Grand Hotel

Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Surrounded by ten acres of landscaped gardens in the centre of Colombo, the large Cinnamon Grand Hotel combines grandeur with warmth and friendliness. All rooms have magnificent views of the city and amenities include two swimming pools and tennis courts! It's also the only Colombo hotel to have a shopping mall attached to it — good news indeed for the shoppers amongst you! If you love food this is the place to be with a wealth of restaurants serving international and Sri Lankan cuisine. Make sure you try The Lagoon, ranked as one of the city's top restaurants — and it's easy to see why.

I had a very nice tea in the mid morning. Service was quite attentive, especially Nishini, who made sure I had everything I needed but also left me to enjoy my book and tea in happy peace! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a calm atmosphere and nice tea

Staff made me feel welcome from the word ‘go’! The receptionists at the front desk were always attentive and helpful! Always with a smile! Room was nicely furnished; bed was comfortable. The housekeeping staff were prompt- the knob to turn from bath to shower wasn’t working and it was sorted out quickly. My colleague and I had dinner at the Lagoon which was simply delicious. We opted for black pepper crab and crab in coconut sauce. I also asked for room service on the day before I checked out. The young man, Viyayraj, who brought my dinner, was eager to please and very sweet! The hotel is also well equipped with meeting rooms. Our workshop was held here. The hotel is close to a mall and the sea, I gather, is a short walk away! I didn’t have the opportunity this time for sightseeing. All in all, the hotel is highly recommended! Hospitality is amazing!

Lovely atmosphere and great food. Loved the service by Sidath. We had soup, Singapore vermicelli noodles and pak choy, and all of it complimented very well indeed. Would definitely recommend for a nice dinner

Service was very good, the staff were friendly and polite. We ordered cocktails and they had plenty of alcohol. Very conveniently located as well. There was a live band playing which made the ambience very good. Overall, would highly recommend.
