Ceylon Tea Trails, Sri Lanka
Ceylon Tea Trails comprises of five restored historic tea planter residences, called bungalows, perched at an altitude of 1250 meters in Sri Lanka’s panoramic Ceylon tea region. Around a five-hour drive from Colombo and two hours from Kandy, it is set in the cool, verdant hills so loved by the British during the colonial era.
The five tea-planter bungalows date back as far as 1888 and are individually designed to suit their heritage. The 27 rooms & suites come with colonial furnishings, gracious butler service, and gourmet cuisine, creating an ambiance that has made Tea Trails the gold standard for luxury in Sri Lanka.
Not only is the traditional Sri Lankan food served at the bungalows top quality, it is also abundant. During the delicious breakfast, the executive chef will visit each table and list options for the three-course lunch and four-course dinner.
Follow the Tea Trail from one bungalow to the next, staying a night or two at each. This is the ideal setting for trekking and biking against the breathtaking backdrop of mountains, lakes, winding roads and waterfalls. If you prefer to unwind, observe life on a working tea estate, enjoy a spa treatment, croquet on the lawn or sunbathe alongside the pool.
