We were looking for a place to spend the last days of our holidays and totally relax; and it was perfect! We stayed here for 5 days. We booked one day upon arrival and by luck we were appointed the treehouse with seeview. The treehouse is great, even with a small balcony with a hammock overlooking the sea. If you...

We loved staying at the Cinnabar Resort. We stayed in one of the treehouse bungalows. The tree house was too rustic and basic for us but we loved the bungalow. It was still rustic with good facilities . A large room with insect cover and a large bathroom. We had a lovely large deck with a day bed to relax...

What a stunning resort. We arrived without booking and were shown a selection of both tree houses and bungalows. All were beautifully finished, spacious and clean. Prices we were offered at first did seem very high for Sri Lanka, but we managed to barter down to around $20 a night for one of the bungalows. Food is a little on...

We had the best time there - food was delicious and for every breakfast we got another surprise! As we were here during off season we were almost alone at the beach which was great for relaxing - book the woodhouse, which was awesome and had a great balcony! But other huts looked great as well. We could not go...

We found this to be exactly what we wanted. Peace and quiet plus location, location, location. The tree houses are amazing and the gardens clean. We would highly recommend. But the food was the highlight for us both. We ate every night at the bar and each meal was an amazing experience. We stayed away from Western food and instead...
