Always with a smile, she has been appreciated numerous times on TripAdvisor for her commendable service. Chief Engineer Russel Bandara won Cinnamon Red’s first-ever ‘Employee of the Year’ award. Joining the team at its inception, Bandara worked side-by-side with contractors and saw the hotel rising up to its current glory from the barren land it was. Heading what is considered as the most efficient department of the hotel with zero attrition since June 2014, Bandara was commended for his superior leadership qualities.The winners received certificates of appreciation along with commendation letter from Cinnamon Red General Manager Terrence Fernando.
