Set high in the mountains in the heart of the tea country, Ceylon Tea Trails offers colonial style luxury country hotels in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka’s first Relais & Chateaux resort, Ceylon Tea Trails comprise four tea planters’ bungalows, each linked by trails through lush green tea plantations. These enchanting bungalows have been transformed to offer a charming mix of modern comforts and plantation traditions – each with their unique character. Summerville; an airy country cottage, Castlereagh – an eclectic style of its own, Tientsin, one of the first planter’s residences to be built in Ceylon is high colonial, and Norwood cloaked stylistically in more modern, 50s charm. Built between 1890 and 1939, all bungalows offer a taste of gracious living with beautiful period furnishings and traditions of old with a quaint butler service. You can stay a night or two at each or follow the Tea Trail from one bungalow to the next spending time at all of them. Go for long treks or bike amongst the backdrop of mountains, lakes, and waterfalls, explore the lush tea gardens and visit a century old factory; or just relax and enjoy the leisurely luxuries of a colonial planter. Settle for a game of croquet on the lawn or opt for the modern indulgence of a spa treatment. Your chef will oblige you with dishes from the West and the East, as well as traditional Sri Lankan classics and tea inspired menus, but do leave room for the legendary afternoon teas, reputed to be heavenly.
