The most beautiful house in the most beautiful place. Just arrived and spent a day here. Amazing food cooked however you want, welcoming staff, just sitting out on the balcony listening to the sea crashing on the beach.
The stunning setting with its breathtaking views, and the simple but luxurious interior design make this an oasis vacation spot not to be missed. The architecture and style has strong, beautiful accents from Lamu island in Kenya where we spent many magical vacations like the one at Cinnamon House. Wide open spaces, and the infinity pool with its views of the beaches, combined with the many decks for sundowners, are just one of the many features. The food was delicious with Sri Lankan and international cuisine combined with attentive service. A special place not to miss while visiting or staying in Sri Lanka.
It was one of our much looked forward to girls trips. we stayed for two days. the warm welcome , amazing food, each floor of the villa was a new discovery especially dinning on the terrace, drinks on the roof top with stunning view, walk down the road to the beautiful beach and the sea where we spent hours catching up. will definitely go there again.
We stayed here for 4 days in April to celebrate our 5th Anniversary, and I'd say it was as good (dare I say better) as our honeymoon. The villa is just perfect!!! Everything is so tastefully done, so earthy and yet so classy. To top it all, the pool and the terrace lounge is where we spent most of our time at the villa. The small and simple details is what impressed me the most, like the hammock and the sitting area on the terrace, where we spent one of the evening just listening to music, enjoying the ocean breeze and the rains on the rooftop. It was so relaxing, I am short of words. And the hospitality is outstanding, the staff goes out of their way to arrange whatever you need, from food to transport etc. And their food is unbelievable, I have not had such good food in my entire trip. Rather we were so spoilt and pampered here that other places for rest of our trip was no match.
All in all, the villa, the view, the weather, and the hospitality made it the most memorable trip of our lifetime. We will definitely visit agian :)
We Stayed at the villa for two nights in March 2018. The place is very well maintained and the staff very courteous. The pool was amazing and we had a hard time pulling our kids out of the pool all day! There is a beach walking distance from the house and its very clean. We would leave the kids to play and laze around. Saw many people surfing as well, looks like the water is great for surfing. We didn’t have much time on hand else would have probably taken some surfing lessons. The villa manager suggested whale watching. You have to wake up early though. It was an experience to remember. My kids had never seen so many whales or dolphins so close!
The food was very tasty. We had never tasted Sri Lankan food before so this was a very new taste for us. The breakfast was super, tranquil and peaceful. My wife had the best time since she never had to raise a finger for anything hahahaha. The villa team was literally on standby for anything we needed. What we loved the most was everything was at our pace and time. One of the most remarkable places we have stayed at and one of the best vacation we have had in a long time! Thank you to the team at Cinnamon House. Good luck to all of you!
The cinnamon house has a very nice and relaxed Moroccan vibe. We went over with our friends and the place is perfect for every situation, weather you're a family or a bunch of friends to have some fun. The food was lovely and Its right infront of the beach. There are many attractions around the area such as whale watching and scuba diving. Would love to go back soon!
My daughter gifted us this holiday as a surprise. It was an incredible experience right from the time we landed at Colombo. A well spoken and and knowledgeable chauffeur ferried us to the Villa in less than two hours from the airport. This place is probably well hidden in the sense of a magnificent and huge house, almost like a totally private beach house! The pool is massive and has a music inside it. We tried a couple of massages and it was exactly what we expected. The beach is just 5 minutes walking distance and absolutely clean. There were few people and we almost felt we were on our own private and safe beach.
The master bedroom we stayed in was bathed in luxury. Such simple colour and symmetry and yet so luxurious. The best part is the bed! Oh My God! Beats some of the best hotels we have lived in! I loved the sun decks ! What a smart idea!
They literally have a the whole terrace as a private BAR and lounge. We genuinely missed having our friends as our company. The place is so big, its just perfect go to as a nice cozy group.
They gave us a hand phone to use as our personal phone whilst we lived there. We could use it whenever we travelled as well and we found this gesture made us feel so safe and comfortable. We did use the phone to call the villa butler a few times for help and it made a huge difference having someone to call in a new country!
The team is vibrant and wonderful. We loved the way they made our beds with flowers and towels. It was such a wonderful gesture. The food I must say was quite superb. One of the dinners they made us some fantastic Sri Lankan delicacies. We eat less spicy food and the team made sure it was palatable to our taste. We especially like the housekeeping boy. Very friendly and always willing to help.
We are already planning another holiday here with our friends this time.
