The world’s only Cinnamon Museum provides a totally
unique encounter with the spice which has been associated
with Sri Lanka for thousands of years.
In the hart of plantation, it is purpose-designed to provide comfortable accommodation, and set within a secluded courtyard, four air-conditioned bedrooms cater for two persons each. Each furnished in classic style, and with cheerful contemporary fabrics. Bathrooms with showers (hot and cold running water) and wc's are en-suite. The rooms are air conditioned.
At night the courtyard is designed to transform into an attractive candle-lit dining area, with an atmospheric bar at one end where one can "chill out" to one's heart content.
The building is furnished with specially commissioned
paintings and sculptures, including a magnificent statue
of a Phoenix, symbolizing the legend which describes
how the dying Phoenix gathered branches of cinnamon
on his last night to create a pyre – which, after
his immolation, allowed his successor to be born from
within the ashes.
The Museum itself will occupy a space on the upper floor of the building. Contents for it are being gathered from all over the world, and it will be opened to the public in the course of 2010.
