Luxury Travel with Cinnamon Air

You can stop dreaming and start living your dream holiday

At 5500 feet up in the sky, the land below is picture-perfect. The lush green mountains and tiered paddy lands are interspersed by the snaking black- tarred roads, chock-full of loaded busses and honking cars creating the ever-present traffic snarl-ups. Next to it, you see the Mahaweli River flowing calmly in all her majesty. But all too soon, you have reached your destination. And step out into another adventure. This is how your journey begins…

Imagine yourself in Kandy
Day 01
Imagine yourself in Kandy

On arrival at Colombo’s International Airport or Colombo City (Waters Edge, Kotte) you will be met by our representatives and transferred to the Cinnamon Air Domestic terminal at Colombo’s International Airport or the check-in area at Colombo City (Waters Edge, Kotte) in time for your flight to Kandy. In approximately, 25 minutes, the flight will reach Kandy’s Polgolla Reservoir and you will be driven to your Hotel.

After check-in at your hotel it is time to give yourself a memorable holiday. Your afternoon will be spent exploring the bustling market place and bazaar areas with your guide. Soon it will be time to visit one of the most sacred places of worship in the Buddhist world.

Imagine yourself in Kandy: A city with a history that is as intriguing as it is enthralling. Once a bastion of the last Sinhala king, the history of this great city dates back to the 4th century with enough relics and remnants to keep you charmed during this memorable holiday. And this is just the beginning…

The Temple of the Tooth Relic: Walk through the magnificent Royal Palace that was built by Vikramabahu 3rd  (r. 1356-1374) and Senasammatha Vikramabâhu (r. 1469-1511). Take in the grandeur of the Audience Hall, built during the reign of Sri Vikrama Rajasinghe (1797-1814)  where the Kandyan kings held their royal court. Visit the Mahamaluwa and see relics and statues of Madduma Bandara, princess Hemamali and Prince Danthe and the skull of Keppetipola Disawa and much much more.

The evening ends with a cultural performance of traditional Kandyan dancing and reverberating drums.

Hakgala Gardens
Day 02
Hakgala Gardens

After breakfast visit the Royal Botanical Gardens at Peradeniya.

The Royal Botanical Gardens: Dates as far back as 1371 when King Wickramabahu III ascended the throne and kept court at Peradeniya near the Mahaweli River. Later, in the reign of King Kirti Sri Rajasinghe (1747-1780) this was made a Royal Garden and from 1780 – 1798 King Rajadhi Rajasinghe resided there. Today, this beautiful 147 acre pleasure  garden of the kings boasts of over 5000 species of trees and plants, some of which are rare and endemic to the tropical world.

Take time for some adventure on the great Mahaweli River by indulging in an optional one hour long boat ride.

After lunch, it is time to proceed, by road, to the Sri Lanka’s summer resort, Nuwara Eliya. But along the way, stop for a visit at a tea factory and get a hands-on opportunity at plucking two leaves and a bud. Inside the factory, you will be shown the entire process of how the world’s most recognized Ceylon Tea is made.

The entire journey will take you, approximately, less than two hours.

Nuwara Eliya, the City of Lights: This colonial hill station is the centerpiece of this country. Once the favored land of the British tea planters, Nuwara Eliya is popularly known as Little England for its cool climes, British styled red-roofed houses, picturesque rose gardens, the English country-styled Hill Club and the beautiful 18-hole golf course.  And a visit to the Racecourse is a must.

Also, a must see is the lovely Victoria Park at the centre of town. Noted as one of the nicest town parks in South Asia, the park comes alive with flowers around March to May, and August and September. Keep an eye open for some beautiful bird life as well including the Kashmir Flyctacher, Indian Pitta and Grey Tit.

The Hakgala Gardens, 10km southeast of Nuwara Eliya is full of legend. When Hanuman, the monkey god, was sent by Rama to the Himalayas to find a particular medicinal herb, he forgot which herb he was looking for and decided to bring a chunk of the Himalayas back in his jaw, hoping the herb was growing on it. The gardens grow on a rock called Hakgala, which means ‘jaw-rock’.

On the way to these gardens, make a quick stop at the Seetha Amman Temple. Again, according to legend, this is where Sita was held captive by the demon king Ravana. On the rock face across the stream are circular depressions said to be the footprints of Ravana’s elephant.

Take a walk along the banks of the Gregory Lake. Or if you feel like it (optional), hire a boat or take a ride on horseback. There are also plenty of places to have a quiet picnic or enjoy some camaraderie at any of the small restaurants or snack bars.

Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka.

An elegant High Tea on a manicured lawn; sip a stiff brandy by the blazing live log fire after a round of golf in the chill air. Is it England in the Days of the Raj ? It may be the 21st century, but colonial splendour still reigns in all its past glory at the Grand Hotel. Once the palatial residence of Sir Edward Barnes, the governor of Sri Lanka, then Ceylon in the 1820s. Today, the Grand offers a myriad of experiences to travelers from all parts of the world, with style and finesse.

Cinnamon Wild Yala
Cinnamon Wild Yala
Yala, Sri Lanka.

Named as a tribute to the surrounding milieu of the Yala National Park which houses the highest density of leopards in Asia, Cinnamon Wild Yala sits adjacent to the park boundary and could very rightfully be positioned as an extension of the park. A property that was first established in 2002 as an eco-friendly resort for wildlife enthusiasts visiting the Yala National Park, Cinnamon Wild Yala opened its doors after an extensive re-construction and refurbishment as a world-class game lodge, conceptualizing the unique architectural features of the 'Wild' into its rustic exteriors and luxurious interiors.
