‘The Golden Valley of Tea’

In the heart of Sri Lanka’s Bogawantalawa Valley, lapped by the shores of Castlereagh Lake are the Ceylon Tea Trails Bungalows, a quaint hideaway located on a working tea estate. This is a great place for contemplation, relaxation and tea sampling set amidst a curtain of rolling green hillsides, misty lakes and private parklands. Distinctive colonial bungalows are spread over the estate and feature their own managers, chefs, butlers and houseboys. You may walk between the bungalows enjoying the scenery and taking refreshments as you arrive, enjoy lake kayaking, tea plantation tours and much more. A comprehensive list of meals, drinks and leisure plus delicious cream teas are all included in your meal plan.



In Our Opinion

‘We recommend taking walks between the boutique bungalows to fully appreciate the natural beauty of the area - refreshments or cream teas will be waiting to refresh you!'

 

Bungalows are homes of former British Estate Managers and are located between 4km and 15km apart. They are named Castlereagh with its eclectic style; Tientsin with its colonial air; Summerville with its country cottage feel and Norwood with a distinctly 50s character.
