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.

Always known for some of the best cakes in the city, did a delightful surprise in making a custom birthday cake. Almost limitlessly accommodating Chef. ARUNA with his amazing insight & attention to detail made a unique five-layered french cake with each layer representing an exotic flavor, finished off with a flowery tropical outlook. Surprisingly affordable overall, contrary to popular belief. Coffee shop Ship-leader DIAN with his warm & enthusiastic willingness to 'walk-that-extra-mile' to find the best professionals for the project made all the difference. If you'll ever happen to be at the 'Coffee Stop' for a such a need, look for DIAN & Chef ARUNA. You'll never be disappointed. -Dr. Rajitha Read less

I continue to come back to this hotel because it is stylish, well located, with great service and a feeling of luxury. The Taprobane restaurant has been updated and the breakfast buffet is great. An egg hopper in the morning is a great way to start the Sri Lankan day. The lobby is elegant and sophisticated. People keep stopping by the beautiful fountain in the center to take selfies. The piano music really makes the place feel like a central meeting place. Between my work meetings i had a few hours each day to grab a coffee in the lobby coffee shop. It is a place to watch Colombo's beautiful people as they sip their drinks in the glow of the evening sun shining through the skylight. Every day, I was welcomed by Mr. Malith and Mr. Nilupul who asked "How was your day?" and "Today, you should treat yourself!" Friendly and effective salesmen, and perfect hosts! This is why I come back to the Cinnamon Grand each time! The rooms are great and comfortable. But this time I spent more time by the pool to enjoy the warm air and the cool water. Too bad work gets in the way! Read less
