Ceylon Tea Trails

Ceylon Tea Trails located in the Central Highlands of Sri Lanka’s tea estates comprises of five restored colonial-era tea planter residences. The period furnishings, private butler service and gourmet cuisine create an ambience that has made Tea Trails the gold standard for luxury bungalows in Sri Lanka.

Ceylon Tea Trails is surrounded by some of the most breathtaking views you will find in Sri Lanka. Each of the bungalows can be linked by a short walk or drive between locations around the Castlereagh Reservoir or simply choose to stay in one bungalow and visit some of the others for afternoon tea before returning to your base. 

Why we like Ceylon Tea Trails

Ceylon Tea Trails is surrounded by some of the most wonderful views you will find in Sri Lanka.


Each of the five Ceylon Tea Trails bungalows has a unique atmosphere and all come with its own manager, chef, butler and chamber staff. The Bungalows have between four to six rooms, all offering immaculate service and incredible comfort and privacy. Themes of oversized suites, colonial furniture, sweeping lawns, swimming pools, English gardens, lake and mountain views unite them all. You can choose to walk between the bungalows to visit for afternoon tea or to spend the night in a slightly different location.
