Cinnamon Citadel, formerly known simply as The Citadel, has been upgraded as part of the highly-regarded Cinnamon brand. Designed by Sri Lankan architect Channa Daswatte, the property taps into Kandy’s ancient heritage blended expertly with modern living. Enter through the gleaming white reception area surrounded with hand-woven Kandyan Dumbara murals and enjoy the incredible views of the picturesque Mahaweli River. Days begin to the sound of birdsong and perhaps a warm mist rolling away from the river. Cinnamon Citadel offers some of the most luxurious rooms that Kandy has to offer, traditional Sri Lankan cuisine with iconic Kandyan flavours and a peaceful riverside setting.
