Ceylon Tea Trails, Hatton, Sri Lanka

In the heart of Sri Lanka’s lush tea country, Ceylon Tea Trails will magically transport you back in time to days of the Raj.

​The very name Ceylon conjures up thoughts of a bygone era, and Ceylon Tea Trails' four luxurious colonial bungalows, built for British tea estate managers in the days of the Raj and connected by stunningly-beautiful tea gardens, will give you a front-row seat to see how the world's finest tea goes from leaf to cup.

​Follow the Tea Trail staying in each of the unique four- to six-room bungalows, taken care of by a house manager, chef and butler throughout.

There's Summerville with its country cottage air; Castlereagh with an eclectic style all of its own; colonial Tientsin, one of Ceylon's first planter's residences, or the more modern Norwood; full of 50's character.

Take a leisurely stroll or trek through the hills, mountain bike through the valleys and picnic at spectacular locations, or take to the Kelani River for white-water rafting and kayaking.​

  • Client Comment

    Wow. This was a fantastic place to stay. We stayed at the Tientsin Bungalow, set high up in the tea plantations. The rooms were large and airy, with a lovely old fashioned bathroom and extremely clean.
