Cinnamon Bentota Beach refurbished with Rs.4.9bn investment set to open next month


The 5-star resort has been constructed across 11 acres of land across Bentota Beach

Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts, Sri Lanka’s top hospitality trendsetter, announced the grand unveiling of Cinnamon Bentota Beach scheduled on 15th December 2019. The announcement was made at one of the world’s biggest travel events, the World Travel Market (WTM) in the UK amidst a gathering of 300 senior journalists of the British Guild of Travel Writers.

Cinnamon Bentota Beach will open in December following refurbishments worth Rs. 4.9 billion made to the formerly known Bentota Beach Hotel, a property which was originally designed by the world-renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa.

The new resort opening coincides with the centenary birth anniversary of Geoffrey Bawa. In its process of renovation, the old heritage structure was brought down brick by brick and reconstructed to what will be the Heritage Wing. The hotel includes a Bawa Museum, which holds some of the most unique and original pieces created by the architect.

The 5-star resort has been constructed across 11 acres of land across Bentota Beach and has the most unique location boasting vistas of the Indian Ocean and the Bentara River. The property will hold 159 rooms with traditional design elements unique to the destination combined with luxury amenities. Each room offers its own view of the ocean or vast gardens and is enhanced by the hotel’s signature experiences and services, including a personal lifestylist for the Suites.

"We are especially looking forward to the re-opening of Cinnamon Bentota Beach as the very first five-star property to open in Sri Lanka following the incidents of April 2019. This hotel will be an iconic establishment that infuses heritage with luxury to offer travellers an inspiring destination experience," commented Jit Gunaratne President Leisure, John Keells Group.
