Our curated Castlereagh and Hatton experiences explore the diverse nuances of this culture-rich region characterised by Sri Lanka’s historic tea industry. The bungalow sits amidst acres of pea-green tea bushes, and a drive through them, along the valley’s edge, to a colonial-era tea factory where you can observe the age-old art of tea production, is included in your stay.
There are plenty of things to do in Hatton and places to visit around the bungalow and the fresh mountain climate makes venturing outside a breeze. Trails through neighbouring tea estates, patches of dense forest and to gushing waterfalls promise striking panoramas at every turn, and picnics can be packed up for enjoying in many of these drama-fuelled locations. The islands on the reservoir proffer further picnic potential, and you can island hop by boat, or voyage along the banks of the reservoir to colonial-era Warleigh Church.
