  • facilities & activities

    The large, uniquely designed swimming pool, abutting the Ehala and Lotus restaurants, has an adjoining shallow pool for children. There are tennis and badminton courts and cycling trails through the forest, as well as plenty of board games for those less inclined to exercise in the heat.

    Located just next to the swimming pool, the open-air restaurant, Ehala serves lavish buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It features an eclectic mix of international cuisine with made-to-order stations and an area entirely devoted to exquisite desserts. Cinnamon Lodge Habarana’s premiere restaurant, the Lotus serves a stylish and healthy take on traditional, local and international favourites.  The Lotus is one of the few restaurants in Sri Lanka to offer ‘Organic fine dining’ with fresh produce coming from its very own farm everyday. Bistro-style dining and a menu inspired by eastern and western favourites make The Verandah the perfect spot for late-night dining, a light meal or a coffee and a decadent dessert. With a wide selection of international spirits and bartenders who can mix a cocktail for any mood or occasion, the Tuskers is a great place to start the fun or finish the day.
