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.

We dined at the Lagoon restaurant, a firm favourite to which we always return. Food was delectable and fresh as always. The restuarant was busy, being a Saturday night. Good to see that patrons are returning to enjoy an evening out. Thank you Damith for an attentive and friendly service.

We hosted our wedding reception at Cinnamon Grand Colombo. The service and the food was incredibly great. Banquet team was very friendly and supported us through out the process. We were highly satisfied with all the Oak room hall arrangements and for the exceptional service they provided us.
