Monkeys swing through the trees; serpent eagles soar overhead and kingfishers swoop across the sparkling waters of the lake. Shady verandas capture the cooling lake breezes, whilst the high-ceilinged rooms have more than a touch of a colonial feel about them with dark, polished wood, crisp white linens, and flashes of colour. Fabulous Sri Lankan fayre and a wealth of international dishes ensure dining is a pleasure and the two bars are convivial spots to recount the days’ adventures over a cool beer or two. The tree-lined swimming pool is a relaxing oasis where you can lounge in the sunshine and enjoy a cooling dip, whilst the Azmaara Spa offers tranquil treatment rooms in the lush gardens. This region of Sri Lanka is made for adventure and the incredible experiences available include the sacred cave temple of Dambulla, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Polonnnaruwa, scaling the dizzying heights of Sigiriya Rock and the truly memorable sight of the elephants in the Minneriya and Kaudulla National Park. Afterwards, return to the tranquil sanctuary that is the Cinnamon Lodge.
