ES­CAPE TO THE TEA TRAILS

Portfolio - - TRAVEL SRILANKA SPECIAL REPORT -

Old world English lux­ury comes to life at the Cey­lon Tea Trails, which is lo­cated at an alti­tude of 1,250 me­ters near Hat­ton in cen­tral Sri Lanka. The prop­erty is com­prised of five colo­nial style bun­ga­lows built be­tween 1888 and 1950 and is lo­cated within an ex­ten­sive 2,000 acres of tea coun­try. Sit­u­ated be­tween Castlereagh Lake and Bo­gawan­ta­lawa val­ley, ex­pect the views from each Tea Trails bun­ga­low to be pic­ture per­fect. Lux­u­ri­ous ac­com­mo­da­tions, thought­ful ameni­ties, sit­ting rooms, and man­i­cured gar­dens aside, it is the de­tails that make Tea Trails stand out. High tea and cock­tail hour are ob­served ev­ery­day, al­low­ing guests to catch up or sim­ply en­joy a more civ­i­lized way of slow­ing down. Ev­ery meal here is at­tended to by an in-house chef, while a per­sonal but­ler en­sures that every­thing you might need or want is at your dis­posal. Be­yond the bun­ga­lows, spend your day walk­ing through stun­ning English-style gar­dens where you can en­joy a game of cro­quet, laz­ing by the pool sip­ping on gin and ton­ics or freshly brewed tea, or learn­ing more about the pop­u­lar bev­er­age at a nearby tea plan­ta­tion and pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity.
