Overview

With beautiful cottages and lodges hidden amongst the trees, chattering monkeys and the sound of bird call ringing through the air, and long winding trails taking you to a tranquil lake and two delicious restaurants – Habarana Village by Cinnamon is clearly inspired by Sri Lanka’s traditional villages.

Located in Habarana, in the north central province of the island, this retreat adopts a simpler way of life, with emphasis put on enjoying an easy-going, slower pace. Unbelievably friendly, we’re certain you’ll feel right at home here.

The rooms and lodges here a simple and minimalist, with many offering a small seating area and a veranda overlooking the lake. Our favourite is the Kingfisher Lodge, hidden away near a secluded corner of the lake.

With such a focus on sustainable, easy living, the restaurants here adopt a farm-to-table approach with their locally sourced ingredients and spices. Families will enjoy tasty buffet meals at El Hena, whilst Panthaliya Coffee Shop serves coffee and snacks in the day, and sumptuous a la carte meals at night. Be sure to end your day at Matins – this laidback bar offers great wildlife spotting opportunities, and incredible sunset views.
