Camelia Hilla

Number of Private Villas: 1            Capacity: Up to 10 guests

In the Castlereagh Valley, near Dickoya, you will find Camelia Hilla nestled into Tea Hill, overlooking Castlereagh Reservoir and boasting dramatic views. There are just five very individual timber-floored bedrooms at Camellia Hills. Each gazes through picture windows over the Castlereagh Reservoir or the lush surrounding hills. The fresh mountain climate makes venturing outside a breeze. Trails through neighboring tea estates, patches of dense forest and to gushing waterfalls promise striking panoramas at every turn. The islands on the reservoir proffer extraordinary picnic potential, and you can island hop by boat, or voyage along the banks of the reservoir to colonial-era Warleigh Church. Butlers are poised to pamper guests and dining here is relaxed, personalized and atmospheric. The views take center stage too; sip sundowners beside the crackling fireplace in the convivial high-ceilinged sitting room while gazing at the far-reaching valley views or feast on delicious contemporary dishes from a curated Sri Lankan and international menu from a breezy lake-facing terrace. Guests will dine on an All-Inclusive basis which includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, complimentary soft drinks, beer and house wine, alcohol with mixers and tea or coffee throughout the day.

 

Ceylon Tea Trails Bungalows

Number of Private Villas: 5           Capacity: 8-12 guests each

In central Sri Lanka, lies the Golden Valley of Tea. This is home to old Ceylon. Here, five classic colonial bungalows, built for British tea estate managers in the days of the Raj, have been caringly restored by Dilmah Tea with the cooperation of Bogawantalawa Tea Estates. Each bungalow is different: Summerville has the air of a country cottage, Castlereagh has an eclectic style, Tientsin is unashamedly colonial, Norwood is more modern, abounding with 1960’s character. Summerville and Castlereagh are situated opposite each other on the shores of the Castlereagh lake. Dunkeld is 30 minutes from Castlereagh, 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 house comes with its own manager, chef, butler and houseboys and between four and six luxurious suites. And when Tea Trails say all-inclusive, they mean it.
