Cinnamon Lakeside, a pyramid-style five-star hotel which stands in seven acres of landscaped gardens, has a relaxed atmosphere compared to many of Colombo's 5-star city hotels. Rooms and restaurants have a modern and stylish ambience. The lakeside `7 degrees North’ tapas restaurant and bar, with all fresco dining, is a particularly sought-after venue in Colombo. Cinnamon Lake’s landscaped gardens, stylish interiors, luxurious rooms, and array of speciality restaurants, recreational and business centre facilities, makes it ideal for business as well as leisure travellers.

Why we like it
A lakeside setting gives this hotel a more serene ambience than many of its rivals.
Cinnamon Lakeside enjoys a central location in the heart of the city, alongside Beira Lake. Its position half a mile from the main ocean drag of Colombo's leading hotels provides what many regard as an enviable seclusion. The journey from Colombo’s international airport will take about an hour.
