Ceylon Tea Trails, Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka’s heritage is inextricably tangled with the Ceylon tea industry and this magnificent Relais & Chateaux property takes all things ‘tea’ and turns it into a breathtakingly charming experience.
Ceylon Tea Trails
Ceylon Tea Trails offers luxury accommodation close to a working tea factory at an altitude of 1250 metres. Endless vistas of misty-clad tea plantations stretch into the distance against a backdrop of mountains and the Castlereagh Reservoir.
Five individually styled bungalows feature five to six rooms each and all offer a real taste of old-world gracious living. Each morning starts with ‘bed tea’, served by your butler if you so desire! This is a side to Sri Lanka rarely seen, particularly in such style, and a 2-3 night stay is highly recommended.
Enjoy gourmet meals with both a Sri Lankan and European influence. Tuck into four-course dinners paired with an excellent choice of wines. Delicious afternoon high-teas are served in the gardens. Traditional Sri Lankan rice and curry are a lunchtime treat.
A stay at Tea Trails wouldn't be complete without a guided tour in the surrounding tea plantations. Hosted by the Resident Tea Planter, witness the ancient tea-making process. Hike the trails of the Old Ceylon tea planters and join the tea-pluckers as they pick the right leaves and buds. Finally, end your experience with the finest sample - the best cup of tea you'll ever drink!
The valley area is ideal for leisurely walks and more adventurous hikes, guided or unguided. For the more adventurous, explore the area by mountain bikes, complimentary to Tea Trails guests.
Relax with a gin & tonic in hand, whilst playing a game of croquet on the lawn or head to Tientsin bungalow for a game of tennis on the clay court.
