stayed at Villa Mount Cinnamon with a group of friends and their families from 26th August 2012 to 29th August 2012 From 26th August 2012 to 29th August 2012

We stayed at Mount Cinnamon for 4 days at the end of August and were treated with the utmost kindness and consideration. The on-site staff of Thilak, the two houseboys and chef and the driver were charming and nothing was too much trouble. The setting is awesome at the top of the Hill; the villa is absolutely beautiful (designed by an associate of the renowned architect, Bawa) with the most amazing artwork. The drive is steep and muddy, but worth it for the Cinnamon Museum on the way up, and Mount Cinnamon (the villa) with its pool and enormous garden area overlooking the bay. We were treated to tasty breakfasts and dinners, chauffeured from Mirissa to Yala National Park and to Galle, had afternoon tea and tea tasting at the associated Virgin White Tea plantation (run by Herman, who is an absolute treasure and even couriered my forgotten glasses back to me) and got to see the local wildlife - peacocks, monkeys, colourful birds and a litter of stray pups and their mum. If you are looking for a holiday with lots of access to local amenities, restaurants, nightlife etc - do not book Mirissa Hills. If you want somewhere to relax totally, be surrounded by amazing sights and sounds and be treated with care and charm, we cannot recommend Mirissa Hills and its properties enough. We were extremely fortunate to have the villa to ourselves for 3 of the 4 days and this added to the sense of serenity. The only two minor niggles - it is a long drive from Colombo airport and the traffic generally is chaotic. We flew from Dubai where all the flights are overnight, so the car journey made it a long trip. There is an internal flight to Koggala and if you are visiting for a short-break, consider this. We also found the menu options for our fussy 13 year old a little limited, but we know that this will be addressed by the team.

We stayed here in December 2011. The place itself was quite hard to get to, but the scenery around the place was nice. The one thing that ruined the stay for me was that the place was absolutely FULL of spiders :( I have a huge phobia, and they were everywhere on the walls, in the rooms...I appreciate that if not everyone has this phobia, and so it would be more enjoyable if it didn't bother you. The staff were helpful, although the manager wasn't often around when we had to arrange various things. The food was lovely and the place was clean. The 'museum' was completely empty when we went. On the whole I'd recommend it, away from the beach (but not if you are afraid of creepy crawlies!!)

We recently spent 3 days in the Cinnamon Museum, a lovely Inn, that is a part of Mirissa. Hill. I arrived with My husband after a grueling 14 hour trip down from Trincomalee. I live in rural California, where our roads are truely bumpy. The road up from the beach was fine. We arrived to fabulous food for dinner and I was coming down with something and the lovely manager sent one of his staff to get me some Ayurvedic medicine. We spent the next day hanging around the pool, earlier in the trip we had spent 4 days at the Giragala at the beach in Mirissa so we had already done the beach. The manager took us on a 2 hour tour of the Cinnamon plantation. I am a chef so I enjoy good food. We spent a total of 5 & a half weeks by the time we arrived there we had stayed in fancy and plain places, from hotels to cabanas. We thouroughly enjoyed the food, the staff, the beauty of the place. It definitely was the most beautifully decorated place we stayed. Great birds there, beautiful view, and the price which included a luscious breakfast was reasonable for us.

A unique resort, and great value if you stay in the cinammon museum - still having access to the facilities and amazing view from the villa above. A short 15mins tuk tuk to the beach, and while there is nothing directly at the mueseum - the food at the villa for a relaxing evening is superb.
