Hard call without knowing what exactly you are looking for (Same league, mid range or budget )
These are what comes to my mind
Price would be around the same
Go by reviews and travellers photos
Saliya resort Sigiriya)
Amaya lake ( Dambulla)
Jetwing lake ( Dambulla)
Kassapa lion rock ( Sigiriya)
Elephant corridor ( Sigiriya)Edited: 19 April 2017, 21:03
Out of the two, Aliya would be the better one. It's much newer.
I like the lodge due to it being an old tie favourite/childhood memories etc but people are usually more impressed by Aliya.
Reading Seeking Places response, I see that I have complicated OPs simple question of which is better out of the given two
So sorry 😐
Agree with SP in his comments cinnamon gives a quaint feeling where as Aliya gives a more modern feel.Both have their own characteristics,its best you go by traveller photos to get an idea
