Perched amongst tea bushes amidst the Concordia Estate, high up on a hill near Nuwara Eliya, Goatfell is a luxurious, recently renovated four-bedroom tea bungalow hotel. This former estate manager’s bungalow still resonates with the warmth and up country charm of a bygone era. With gourmet food and Butler service, guests can relax on covered verandas, in the warmth of the log fired sitting room or enjoy tea field views from the infinity swimming pool.
The bungalow sits at an elevation of 2,000-metres above sea level, on the outskirts of Kandapola and a 25-minute drive from the colonial-era hill station of Nuwara Eliya. The surrounding hills, marked by concentric circles of neatly trimmed tea bushes, are linked by winding, ascending estate roads promising jaw-dropping vistas at every turn.
