Situated in the middle of a cinnamon plantation, metres away from its own private beach on the south coast of Sri Lanka is the Villa Mayurana. With just three elegant, tastefully designed suites, the property promises its guests total exclusivity, tranquillity and relaxation during their stay. Each suite is different; one has a luxury Jacuzzi bath, while another has access to a private veranda and ornamental pool. None will disappoint. The Villa’s Cinnamon Experience is not to be missed. Sri Lanka produces 90% of the world’s “true cinnamon” and thanks to the location of the hotel clients are invited to take part in harvesting cinnamon, followed by a four-course meal and home-made cinnamon infused tea.
