We are Cinnamon

We create lifestyle experiences, with a touch of warmth.

We started our journey drawing inspiration from our country’s most valuable spice, cinnamon. Just like its pleasant flavour and warm aroma, we infuse a rejuvenating spirit into every experience the world discovers with us.

Today, with each property we present a new Sri Lanka that houses a contemporary outlook and a genial atmosphere. Together, they put us on the world map beyond the boundaries of hospitality. They make us a group passionate about living the true essence of each moment.

  • Established in 2005, with 15 properties
