  • Explore the Sri Lankan Tea Trails in springtime

    Spring touring holiday of Sri Lanka's Tea Trails

    Spring offers the perfect opportunity to explore Sri Lanka's tea trails, as the driest part of the year is between December and April. Enjoy a touring holiday of Tea and Hill Country, step into the world of the colonial tea planter and enjoy a fabulous all-inclusive stay at the Ceylon Tea Trails bungalows which is reached by scenic seaplane flights. Your stay is further enhanced by the cultural sights and shopping secrets of Colombo and Kandy.

    Day 1 Arrival into Colombo
    You will be met at the International Airport and transferred by air-conditioned vehicle to The Wallawwa in Kotugoda (around 30 minutes drive). Nestled amongst acres of beautifully manicured gardens, this antique colonial manor house, or Wallawwa, is now a charming boutique hotel. Treat yourself to a relaxing spa treatment or refreshing dip in the pool and sample the delicious cuisine. (B&B)

    Day 2 Colombo to Kandy
    Transfer by car to Colombo airport’s seaplane base and take a scenic 30-minute flight to the hill capital Kandy where you will be met on arrival and transferred to Theva for two nights. Theva is a private and luxurious boutique hotel with awe-inspiring views across mountains and valleys, just 2km from the cultural capital of Kandy. Contemporary design, a home away from home atmosphere and exotic cuisine make this a unique place to stay. This evening, visit the famous Temple of the Tooth. (B&B)

Perched at an altitude of 4000 feet in the heart of Sri Lanka’s panoramic tea country, four restored colonial-era tea planters’ bungalows offer gracious living with gourmet cuisine and period furnishings. Observe life on a working tea estate, whilst being pampered by your butler. Each bungalow has between 4 and 6 rooms. Castlereagh and Summerville bungalows have lakefront positions, Norwood has panoramic views and Tientsin is the most traditional colonial. You will stay in a Garden Suite and all meals and drinks are included. (AI)

The tour ends with a tasting of different grades of this great brew. (AI)
