Avurudu with a contemporary flair at Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts

With the Sinhala and Tamil New Year just around the corner, Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts is gearing up to host a grand line-up of Avurudu festivities and celebrations at each of its distinct properties across the island.

Avurudu is a truly special occasion for many families, who come together to spend quality time with one another, and usher in a New Year with renewed hope and happiness. Staying true to important traditions, whilst offering the essence of contemporary hospitality, each Cinnamon property will provide guests with a range of inspiring and vibrant experiences, that will make this Avurudu truly memorable.

Following the hoisting of the traditional flag, the singing of national anthem and the observance of important times and customs such as the boiling of milk in a clay pot, each hotel will also offer a fun-filled selection of games and activities for the whole family.

Highlights will include well-loved games such as Kotta Pora (pillow fighting), Kamba Adeema (tug of war), Kana Mutti Bindeema (breaking of the pot) and many more, all of which will be hosted on Avrudu Asiriya, the day before the New Year. The Avurudu Kumari and Kumaraya (New Year King and Queen) pageant will also allow guests to unwind and enjoy yet another entertaining Avurudu highlight. A delicious spread of sumptuous traditional breakfasts, as well as a wide range of delicious sweet meats such as kiribath, kavum, kokis, asmi and more will also be available throughout the celebrations.
