The Tea Trails experience is extremely unique - converted Tea Planter's bungalows, that have managed to maintain an age-old Colonial style. The service is impeccable, with a butler service provided throughout your stay. The location nestled in the hill-country of SL is beautiful and extremely relaxing, and feels a million miles away from the coastal regions. Each bungalow is slightly different in its feel, we stayed at Castlereigh on this occasion, which was lovely, as it was small, with only 5 or 6 rooms I believe, adding to the boutique feel of this experience. The dining was excellent, including made to order breakfasts and a varied dinner menu. All in all this is what you would expect from a Relais and Chateux gilded hotel. One point to bear in mind however, the bungalows are situated in Hatton, which is approximately 50km away from Nuwara eliya, which is great if you are driving from Colombo, but an extremely long journey from the southern coastal regions (7 hours from Tangalle, with one stop, in our case!). Though this is obviously a miscalculation on our part!! Well worth the journey though!
