Just minutes away from incredible beaches, La Cannelle is a boutique, family-owned villa on a cinnamon plantation in southern Sri Lanka, designed by a local architect of the Geoffrey Bawa School in collaboration with the European owners. It’s an excellent place to disconnect and relax — making for an unforgettable get-away holiday!


The villa is laid out to comfortably sleep 4 adults (with 2 separate single beds available). It has two large suites: the “Planter’s Suite” and the “Cinnamon Suite”. Both are equipped with air conditioners, ceiling fans, satellite TVs and mosquito nets. Finest linens bedeck the extra-large king size four-poster beds and each have a spacious en suite bathroom.

In addition to the solar-heated indoor rainforest showers, guests delight in the outdoor showers in the private stone courtyards attached to each bathroom. There is no better feeling than the pure joy of a deluge of cool water under a scorching sun or starlit sky. The Planter’s Suite also has its own private veranda and courtyard with pergola – a sanctuary with ample space for meditation, yoga or quiet contemplation.

The villa’s common areas host a magnificent, solid hardwood table and chairs that bring elegance to the dining room. High speed WIFI is available throughout the house and a refreshing 15 metre swimming pool is ensconced in tropical foliage and perfect for laps, frolicking or lazy floating.

Our full-time staff is available to serve you tea and other drinks, cook for you, help with transportation, do laundry and provide a wealth of information about the flora and fauna on the property. Also, they can give you a cinnamon tour on the property so you can learn about how cinnamon is grown and harvested.
