Overview


Set amongst the tea plantations in the hills of the Bogawantalawa Valley - the “Golden Valley of Tea”, two and a half hours from Kandy and six hours from Bentota, Ceylon Tea Trails is an ideal base for  two or more nights stay as a postscript to a private tour of Sri Lanka's amazing highlights. 

As Tea Trails is at an elevation of 4000 feet, the climate is cooler and less humid than in Colombo and on the coast. Typically cool mornings, warm days and cool evenings.

The four bungalows comprising Ceylon Tea Trails are between 4 km and 15 km apart offering between four and six ensuite bedrooms each, offering luxurious comfort in the style of late Edwardian to 1930s decor, reflecting the era when they were built for British tea estate managers in the days of the Raj  Guests can choose to stay in one or even stay in each, experiencing the difference in decor, ambienceand setting between them.

Summerville and Castlereagh are situated opposite each other on the shores of the Castlereagh lake, Norwood is at the other end of the valley about 15 minutes away by car and Tientsin is about 30 minutes away in the next valley.

Each bungalow is colonial in style, with beautiful gardens and sweeping lawns. Each property comes with its own manager, chef and butler and house boys. Each of the bungalows has a cosy lounge with open fireplace for the chillier evenings,where pre-dinner drinks can be served,and a television with selection of DVDs.

All are set in beautiful gardens with stunning views. Norwood has 5 bedrooms and a small pool. Castlereagh has 5 bedrooms and a small pool. Summerville has 4 bedrooms and lovely lake views. Tientsin has 6 bedrooms, a swimming pool, tennis court and is a bit more grand. Facilities in each bungalow are available to all Ceylon Tea Trails guests. The bedrooms are individually decorated, spacious and elegantly furnished. All the properties are sold on all inclusive basis – think afternoon tea on the lawn, pre-dinner drinks and post-dinner liquers – the food is plentiful and skilfully prepared and presented. Garden dining is optional in all the bungalows, an especially pleasant experience to enjoy breakfast with valley views!

Guests can choose from activities which include cycling and walking trails, white water rafting, a tea tasting experience or a dawn climb to the summit of Adams Peak (Dec-May). Alternatively just enjoy the peace, relax in the gardens with a book or play Scrabble! June and July can be wet months so may hamper outdoor activities.
