Cinnamon Citadel


Cinnamon Citadel boasts a picture postcard view of the Mahaweli river set against a backdrop of mountains shrouded in varying degrees of mist. Nestled high up in the hill country, the four-star hotel caters to those looking for quiet relaxation with easy access to the centre of Kandy, Sri Lanka’s bustling hill capital and the last domain of the Sinhala kings.

Cinnamon Citadel Sri Lanka TourThe view from the aptly named panorama restaurant across the pool and on to the river is a splendid way to either start the day with breakfast or end it with a traditionally Sri Lankan buffet dinner. On the other side of the pool is a more secluded restaurant should you want a more intimate fine dining experience. Feeling hot? The pool is a great place to lounge beside or dip into for a refreshing swim at the end of each day.

The hustle of downtown Kandy is a short tuk tuk or taxi ride away, ensuring that you are close enough to be able to explore the city and then retreat to the peace and quiet of the tranquil riverside setting for a great night sleep.
