Ceylon Tea Trails
  • Ceylon Tea Trails promises the most luxurious tea experience in Sri Lanka’s Ceylon tea region, comprised of five restored historic tea planters’ bungalows, each completely unique.

  • Follow the Tea Trail from one bungalow to the next, staying a night or two at each, or just stopping for lunch along your hiking route through the working tea plantations.

  • A philosophy of ‘no menus, just indulgence’, this Relais and Chateux property promises an exquisite tea inspired culinary feast.

  • A stay at Ceylon Tea Trails offers an authentic, intimate and exploratory journey into the heart, soul and history of the Ceylon tea region.

Nestled amongst the hills of the Dickoya region in central Sri Lanka, at over 5,000 feet above sea level, is Ceylon Tea Trails which is one of just three Relais and Chateaux resorts in Sri Lanka. The concept is very British, with high tea served in the afternoon and rooms decorated in keeping with the feel of the colonial era.

The hotel offers five classic colonial era bungalows with luxurious suites, a manager, butler service and chef. Rooms feature four poster beds, elegant bathrooms, some with verandas, opening out onto private immaculate gardens. The food is fantastic with Sri Lankan classics and seafood grills using locally sourced ingredients some of which come from organic vegetable plots around the estate.

The surrounding countryside is out of this world and guests can walk from one bungalow to the next, greeting locals on the way and taking in the fabulous views. You can be as lazy or as active as you want here, either lounging by the pool or trying some white water rafting, riding, tennis, croquet, boating or visiting local tea estates.

Excursions offered by the hotel include visits to Kandy the Hill Capital of Sri Lanka in the central highlands, Adam's Peak, Nuwara Eliya and the national parks of Horton Plains and Uda Walawe, Sri Lanka's top eco tourism destination in Sri Lanka and famous for its large population of elephants.

Top tip:

After enjoying breakfast on your veranda, take a walk (not forgetting your camera) through the hills to another bungalow for lunch. You’ll build up your appetite and if you’re too full to walk home your driver will be at your disposal to come and pick you up!
