Standard King Room
During our stay at Cinnamon Red Hotel we opted to stay in the Standard King Room which certainly did not disappoint and was perfect for our needs. They have a whole range of rooms and suites which you can view here.
All rooms come with either a large king or twin beds and are super comfortable with plush pillows and soft duvets which make all the difference. There are chairs, a table, desk, and large windows with some fantastic views of the city and surrounding area. The en-suite bathroom looks very modern with glass and chrome, a powerful shower and free toiletries.
What you get
With the King room it comes equipped with a flat screen TV and pay per view channels, safety deposit box, tea & coffee making facilities, shower, mini bar, free daily bottled water, plenty of power sockets, super fast Wi-Fi (the best we had in Sri Lanka), air-conditioning, linens and towels.
This awesome infinity pool can be found on the 26th floor overlooking Colombo and is a spacious and relaxing one. There are many pool chairs and beds scattered around the pool with showers, and towels. It is right next to the gym and there is also a bar on the other side so chances are you’ll get to the poolside and never want to leave!
Stay fit at the gym
Housing lockers, and the latest equipment including Tour-de-France bikes and CrossFit equipment flown in directly from the USA. Professionally trained instructors are also available at all times who can work out a customised plan around your busy schedule.
Play a spot of tennis
While many hotels in Colombo City offer sports and tennis facilities, their other hotel – Cinnamon Grand have the best! They understand that you don’t have to play alone. One of their tennis pros will play with you or there is a constant roster of markers you can play on the two all-weather courts.
Explore Colombo by boat!
Forget the busy city life of Colombo as you take a boat cruise through the suburbs of the capital. This short boat ride captures hidden parts of a bustling and scenic city and takes you on a tranquil journey through the Diyawanna stream.
A one hour cruise will give you a glimpse of wetland birds that are not visible to most visitors in Colombo. There are common wetland birds such as Spot-billed Pelicans, Yellow bitterns, Pond herons, Purple herons, a few species of kingfishers, & Brahminy Kites soaring above over the wetlands. Larger reptiles such as Water Monitors and an occasional crocodile can also be seen.
How to get there
The hotel is super central in Colombo and relatively easy to find either from the airport or one of the main attractions in the area.

This hotel is absolutely beautiful, modern and luxurious! I am so glad that we chose to stay here for a few nights – its the ultimate city Sri Lankan experience!
The rooms were fantastic and we we had a super comfortable nights sleep and really enjoyed being able to watch the city from an aerial view. The rooftop pool is also a great feature offering a refreshing dip and the staff are so friendly, they can honestly not do enough for you to make your stay that little bit more comfortable than what it already is.
You will want to spend longer
The landscapes around the hotel are breathtaking and you will find yourself soaking them up the whole time you’re there. When you throw in the close proximity to the city centre, all of the on-site facilities and the other attractions nearby you are onto a winner!
If you are in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and you want to have a unique luxurious experience, I would highly recommend Cinnamon Red Hotel.
