Ceylon Tea Trails
Hatton, Sri Lanka
An authentic piece of Sri Lankan history, these luxurious bungalows once were the homes of the island’s tea planters. Today, in keeping with the lushness of the surrounding tea-scape, the bungalows are equipped with every luxury from butlers to spring-fed plunge pools.
Why we love it
You arrive at Ceylon Tea Trails in a water plane, touching down on the still surface of the lake engulfed in a sense of exotic exclusivity.
Even if you’re a flat white fanatic, you’ll be a tea convert after having gazed upon the glorious undulating countryside in which this spectacular resort sits.
This quintet of 19th-century bungalows is found at over 4000ft in the verdant heights of Sri Lanka’s Ceylon tea region.
With their hilltop positioning, the panoramas are astonishing. The bungalows offer a predominanty heritage vibe: four-poster beds, open fireplaces, dark wood antique side tables. Your french doors open up onto verandas and emerald green gardens, and all bungalows enjoy butler service and private pools with views fit for Earl Grey.
WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?
There’s nowhere else in Sri Lanka with this mix of heritage and outright luxury. Tea, of course, features heavily, whether being poured and served by your butler during breakfast in bed; at afternoon tea in the birdsong-adorned gardens; or during dinner with a tea pairing to go with your exquisite local cuisine.
Many of the resort’s experiences steep you in the local heritage. Freewheel on your bicycle past tea pickers in the fields, take a private tour of the historic Dunkeld Tea Factory, or, for a tea break, have a massage in your room before sipping a tea-free cocktail by the pool.
27 rooms and suites across five individual bungalows with butler service, private outdoor swimming pools, and gardens, some with a heated outdoor hot tub or private jacuzzi
