Located in Sri Lanka, just four hours from Colombo by car to the Castlereagh lake, lies the Bogawantalawa Valley, known as the Golden Valley of tea and home to old Ceylon, replete with rolling green hills, plantation bungalows, high tea and exquisite service.
At an elevation of 4000 feet above sea level, Ceylon Tea Trails is a collection of four luxurious tea plantation bungalows set in stunning hill country. Originally built for British tea managers during the Raj, they now offer modern comfort with a dash of style, fine cuisine and excellent service without losing the sence of history. Each house comes with its own chef, butler and manager and support staff to welcome guests as at a planter's home. Meals are based on fresh produce, cooked to order and range from western fare to tea infused dishes and traditional Sri Lankan classics.
Guests are absorbed into life on a working tea estate, whilst reveling in five star luxury. Tea trails will teach you everything you need to know about the perfect brew. The unique Tea experience tour with the tea planter in residence will show you the wonders of Camellia Sinensis (the botanical name for tea).
The houses are set between 4 and 15 km apart offering views in all directions. A variety of activities including bike rides, guided walks around the working tea estate to rafting, climbing the famed Adams Peak mountain, part of the Central Highlands world heritage area, day trips to the ancient hill capital kandy and golfing in Euwara Eliya.
