Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts invites the world’s storytellers to unearth the bountiful treasures of Sri Lanka.

COLOMBO, SRI LANKA, May 23, 2022 / -- With a modern history of more than 3000 years and an extraordinary prehistoric human history dating back well over 125,000 years, Sri Lanka is primed and excited for the world’s storytellers to descend into its magical lands and savour its bountiful treasures. This South Asian Island nation and brightly shining ‘Jewel’ of the Indian Ocean is now home to a diverse and thriving population of global expatriates who are interwoven into modern Sri Lankan society and its flourishing business community.

Known for its warm hospitality and idyllic natural beauty, Sri Lanka is proud to open its doors and welcome content creators from across the world. A magical and open invitation through the recently unveiled ‘One Island a Thousand Treasures’ campaign awaits them to participate in and celebrate its world-famous gastronomy, ancient traditions, cultural heritage, and extraordinary people.

“Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts is proud to launch the ‘One Island a Thousand Treasures’ campaign, with the support of our partners at Sri Lanka Tourism. We are excited to create a platform that supports our industry and promises to bring about new business opportunities for our cherished local communities, including the revival and expansion of our local arts and crafts heritage. We are driven to create a torrent of unforgettable memories for travellers from across the world, during their stay at any Cinnamon branded properties. Our widespread distribution throughout Sri Lanka gives us the unique ability to offer guests a host of hotel stay options closest to the sights and experiences they want, as they explore everything our beautiful Island offers.” Said Christian Pertl, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) – Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts.

Each of the Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts branded properties offers its guests the distinct opportunity to uncover the wide range of incredible sights and experiences each area has in abundance. You can uncover the secrets of Sri Lanka’s ancient and deadly martial art ‘Angampora’, and learn from a generations-old Master-craftsman as he fashions ordinary crystals into perfect optical lenses. Discover the mysteries of the white stone circle at the magnificent Danigala ‘Alien’ mountain and ponder the origin of its famed and unusual astrological drawings, dance in the moonlight to the enchanting songs of Batticaloa’s singing fish or ride atop an Asian elephant, even go out in search of the stunning and elusive Sri Lankan leopard or cruise alongside the frolicking dolphins and pods of titanic whales.

From our valleys to our mountain tops, from our flora to our fauna, from our rivers to our oceans, the opportunity for discovery is endless, and Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts has everything any traveller needs to carve out their own remarkable Sri Lankan adventure and connect with the diverse and wonderful people who call it home.

The ‘One Island a Thousand Treasures’ campaign is the go-to interactive digital guide, designed with content creators, influencers, tourists, and adventurers in mind, to help them plan and find their own intrepid Sri Lankan adventure.
