It belongs to the Lauraceae family and to the genus Cinnamomum, but, in cuisine, it is known as cinnamon. Its name (Kin Amon, in Arabic “scented plant”) evokes exotic places: Ceylon, Java, India are only a few places where this precious shrub grows, before arriving at us under the form of carved cortex sticks, which are dried and rolled up, as perfumed powder or essential oil. However, its origins date back very further into history: it is said that it was present in China already in 2700 B.C., before spreading in the Mediterranean Egypt and reaching the European courts.
Its strong scent and its cloying and sour taste made it the “spice of the King” in the past. Today, its widespread use in the cuisines of half of the world testifies that it remains the queen of many recipes.
To devote one of our rooms to the cinnamon means to pay a special tribute to the spice that has accompanied many of our journeys and many of our returns. Then, enjoy the relax and the atmosphere evoked in the room bearing its name.
Relax with the warm and brown colours of the room, which is embellished with dark wooden details, and abandon yourselves to resting sleeps in the comfortable double bed representing the Far East. When you wake up, you will find a modern room all for you, with any kind of comfort and a private bathroom with shower and tub. Give yourself a sweet dream.
