Cinnamon Lakeside

Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Overlooking the tranquil waters of Lake Beira, Cinnamon Lakeside is one of Colombo’s finest hotels. Effortlessly blending luxury with service, sincerity and warmth, you'll enjoy a comfortable stay whilst admiring city or lake views. Although right in the city centre, the hotel stands in seven acres of landscaped gardens, lending the atmosphere an almost serene quality. Nonetheless, myriad attractions, including shops, bars and restaurants, are just a few hundred yards away. Amenities to tempt you include the Azmaara Spa, offering a full range of soothing treatments, and the Power Drome Health Club with lap pool, state-of-the-art gym equipment, and tennis and squash courts. There are also six superb restaurants serving world cuisine at its best. Long Feng specialises in traditional Chinese cuisine, whilst the Royal Thai offers Thai delights. If a sumptuous buffet appeals, look no further than the Dining Room, which also boasts à la carte Continental and Asian dishes. The Library is quite unique, by day it’s a charming place to relax with a good book; at night, it transforms into a sophisticated nightclub complete with pool table, gourmet dining and karaoke lounge should the mood take you! 7 Degrees North – the bar by the lake is a much sought-after venue in Colombo, offering a stylish restaurant and bar area with plenty of al-fresco seating to make the most of warm evenings.
