Relaxation, rejuvenation and regeneration to the mind, body and soul - NIJA Luxury Wellness officially opened its doors on 27th January at Cinnamon Grand Colombo’s Club City premises. NIJA in Sanskrit denotes a white rose and synonymously, NIJA Luxury Wellness embodies purity, innocence and elegance of holistic wellness. The official launch ceremony of Colombo’s newest luxury wellness centre was held under the patronage of Chief Executive Officer, Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts Mikael Svensson, Area Vice-President Colombo, Kamal Munasinghe and Deputy Chief Executive Officer Hishan Singhawansa among other dignitaries present.
Speaking at the launch Area VP Colombo, Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts, Kamal Munasinghe noted, “Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts constantly strives to give our guests experiences that will elevate their stay with us. The partnership with NIJA now offers our guests the opportunity to relax, rejuvenate and regenerate themselves during their stay with us here at Cinnamon Grand Colombo. NIJA’s vision of holistic wellness ties in well with our own ethos of creating #CinnamonMoments that focus on the mind, body and soul”.

They are professionally competent and proven to give you the very best. These exclusive packages are designed to suit everyone, to refresh you from the daily hustle and bustle”, Fernando added.
Prior to the launch, we were invited on an exclusive spa experience at NIJA Luxury Wellness. At the City Club premises of Cinnamon Grand Colombo, NIJA Luxury Wellness invites guests into its serene facility enriched with shades of ivory and white. We were greeted with a refreshing wet towel on our entry as the staff efficiently prepared us for our treatment and led us to our treatment room. Our treatment room had all the makings for a relaxing session; blackout curtains, aromatic scenting, tranquil music and a plush spa bed. What followed was an incredibly relaxing 30-minute treatment session. Our massage therapist Lin was absolutely wonderful and under her skilled ministrations alternating between soft and hard pressure, we could physically feel our tension ebb away. We wrapped up our treatment with a relaxing herbal tea.
