Experiences at Habarana Village

Adventure, Gastronomy & Relaxation – the Cinnamon Way!

The best things in life tend to come in threes, like health, wealth and happiness. At Habarana Village by Cinnamon, we believe the same. This is why we have a special combination of elements that bring you to an island edition of the good life. Engage in big adventures, dig into spicy dishes and relax to your heart’s content.

Hop onto a jeep and visit the nearby wildlife parks, journey to the monastic ruins of Ritigala or climb the mythically referenced Sigiriya, the unofficial 8th wonder of the world.  Take a walk through our gardens and meet myriad colourful birds, observe the chattering troupe of resident primates. Our highly informed and skilled naturalists from Nature Trails will make whatever tour or activity you choose an unforgettable experience. So charge those camera batteries, slap on some sunscreen and bring along some water bottles – you’re off on a grand adventure!

Here’s a quick peek at what’s in store for you at Habarana Village by Cinnamon:

Adventure:

  • Nature Trails: We embrace the natural habitats around each of our resorts wholeheartedly, and thanks to Nature Trails, we’re able to share their wonders with you. Trained Nature Trails naturalists will guide you through all there is to discover in the wilderness. You’ll be able to witness the legendary gathering from Habarana Village by Cinnamon, where hundreds of elephants move towards the lake during the dry season (July – September).
  • Culture Trails: There’s plenty of culture to soak up at Cinnamon, and the Nature Trails team is on hand to guide you. Habarana Village by Cinnamon offers a peek into village life, with the presence of organic farming and tours of the neighbouring villages. It’s also a great place to stay if you want to visit historic sites such as Anuradhapura and the Ritigala monastery.
  • Adventure Trails: We’re well known for our taste for adventure, and Habarana Village by Cinnamon will take you on a rock-climbing expedition that’s sure to get your adrenalin pumping.

Gastronomy:

  • Romantic Dinners: Let us set up a special dinner for two, under the tress and the stars. Right outside your room is also a great place for private dining. Talk to us and we’ll show you where across our expansive property a special dinner for two can come to life.
  • Tree House Dinner: Our tree-filled property is also interspersed with tree houses made for two. Walk up, take in the view and let us set up an intimate dinner for two while you’re there.
  • Lakeside Dinner: The benefits of bordering a lake also means the water’s edge makes for great dining experiences. Talk to us about how we can create a special moment for you with a special breakfast or dinner for two.
  • Champagne Breakfast: If you’re here with you special someone, let us make the moment that much more special for both of you. A special early morning champagne breakfast on a tree house, by the lake or your private verandah are perfect ways to begin the day together, with a bottle of bubbly to light up your day.
  • Family/Group BBQ: We have an extensive outdoor barbeque area close to the lake that borders our rustic resort. We can create a lively evening with food and friends that will make your journey here truly memorable.

Relaxation:

The very homely essence of our village-like resort is designed for relaxation. The ultimate getaway means you get to have ultimate downtime. Listen to the sound of the wind rustling through the trees, the early morning bird song and the mellow chattering of monkeys that live in harmony around you. Walk by the lake as the sun goes down, rejuvenate at our spa and sink into the plush comforts of your room. Ultimate relaxation? We like to think so!
