HILL COUNTRY Sri Lanka’s captivating hill country offers visitors an idyllic mix of misty mountains, colonial hill stations and lush tea plantations. The setting for the natural wonders of the Horton Plains and Ella Gap, its cool climate also attracted the British planters of the 19th Century, who left behind them lovely colonial retreats like Nuwara Eliya.


CEYLON TEA TRAILS In Bogawantalawa Valley lies the classic splendour of Ceylon Tea Trails – 4 colonial bungalows originally built for British tea estate managers, which have been restored to the highest standards. Excursions available include walks through the tea estates with the planter in residence, a tea factory visit and mountain bike rides for all different levels of ability.


KANDY Gateway to Sri Lanka’s beautiful hill country, the World Heritage setting of Kandy is the country’s cultural capital. Home to the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, the most revered Buddhist shrine in the country, and the lovely Peradeniya Botanical Gardens, Kandy also hosts the Perahera each July/August, one of the finest cultural festivals in Asia, the highlight of which are the numerous highly decorated elephants.


Ceylon Tea Trails


With historic tea trails to explore and plentiful boutique properties to stay in, Sri Lanka can provide visitors with a wonderful mix of colonial gentility, ancient culture and lush landscapes as ageless as time itself.


KANDY HOUSE Capturing something of the aristocratic splendour of a bygone age, the 9 luxuriously appointed rooms and suites of this 19th century manor house sits amongst Sri Lanka’s lush central highlands. Set around a central courtyard and appointed throughout with colonial Dutch furniture, the property recreates something of the rich ambience of the Burgher community.
