The Cinnamon Bey Beruwala hotel, one of the newer members of Sri Lanka’s famous Cinnamon hotel chain, lies just an hour and a half away from Colombo on the south coast. The Turkish architecture of this resort is inspired by the first Arab settlements built in Beruwala in the 10th century.
Cinnamon Bey is a family-friendly hotel directly on the beach with spacious lawns, a large central pool, and a kids’ pool. All of the 200 rooms at Cinnamon Bey feature ocean views, and the two upper level suites include private plunge pools. Children will love ICE, the Ice Cream Emporium, which offers a range of homemade ice creams and frozen yogurts.
Nearby attractions include a mask museum at Ambalangoda and a turtle hatchery where kids can release baby turtles into the sea. Cool…we think so!
The kids' pool, direct beach access and ice cream bar all contribute to making this a great family resort close to Colombo, ideal for a day trip or overnight stay.
Parents who enjoy a stylish resort with all the amenities with preschool or school-aged kids who love swimming and exploring the beach.
While the hotel has a number of restaurants, the buffet is the best option for kids as it's easy to find food children will like, particularly from the pasta bar.
