Regarded as the most scenic part of Sri Lanka, Tea Country is the setting for an idyllic sojourn high in the hills, staying in one or more of four colonial homes built in the days of the British Raj. The suites which open directly onto the flower filled gardens, feature wide verandas, elegant bathrooms with freestanding baths, four-poster beds, open fires and crisp, white linens. With a butler on hand to serve and draw your bath, enticing meals of western fare, traditional Sri Lankan cuisine and tea inspired dishes made to order, there’s a real sense of staying in an elegant private home. Pursuits range from tea factory visits and tastings, to mountain walks and mountain biking, all through rich Ceylon tea gardens.
