Cinnamon Citadel Kandy

Fancy waking up to a picture-postcard view of a river, set against a backdrop of mountains shrouded in varying degrees of mist? Revelling in a soundtrack written and performed by Mother Nature herself? Then travelling back in time for a history lesson? That’s exactly what you’d get, and more, at the Cinnamon Citadel Kandy. Nestled high up in the hill country, beside a quiet bend in the Mahaweli River, our iconic four-star hotel caters to those looking for quiet relaxation not far from Kandy, Sri Lanka’s bustling hill capital and the last domain of the Sinhala kings.

Three and a half hours away from the airport and just 15 minutes away from the Kandy town, our hotel is located in the very heart of serenity. It’s a constantly recurring theme that embraces you at the reception, waits with you in the lobby, walks you through the hallways and stays with you in your room until you check out. And while all tranquility is clearly reflected in the contemporarily stylish interiors of the hotel, there are plenty of subtle reminders in the form of vibrant tones of red and traditional Kandyan art, reminding you that you’re still very much in the majestic realm of the ancient kings.
