Cinnamon Citadel

Based on reviews.

Nestled high up in hill country, beside a quiet bend in the Mahaweli River, this charming hotel provides peace and relaxation not far from Kandy, the last domain of the Sinhala kings, as well as picture-postcard views. The interior of the property is contemporarily stylish, yet there are subtle reminders in the forms of vibrant tones and traditional Kandyan art to remind you that you're in the majestic realm of the ancient kings. The pool overlooks the river and is just the place to unwind after a hectic day of sightseeing before you perhaps opt to dine in either of the restaurants, where every palate is well catered to.
