The Tea Trails

This award-winning boutique resort comprises of five restored colonial-era tea planters’ bungalows, offering period furnishings, exquisite butler service & gourmet cuisine. Bungalows vary from 4 to 6 rooms & suites; 27 rooms in all. Book an individual room or a group could reserve a complete bungalow.

Each of the five bungalows is unique – lakeside Castlereagh. Summerville & Dunkeld, Norwood with panoramic views and Tientsin, the most traditional colonial.

Ceylon Tea Trails is situated south of Hatton in the Dickoya and Bogawantalawa region of the hill country in south-central Sri Lanka. Most guests come by private car as part of a bigger exploration around Sri Lanka. The nearest major town is Hatton, which is 20 minutes away from the nearest bungalow, Summerville, and 45 minutes from the farthest, Tientsin. There is a railway station in Hatton with services to Colombo, Kandy and Nuwara Eliya & Ella. The train journey is very picturesque.
