Known as Ceylon until 1972, Sri Lanka means "resplendent land" in Sanskrit - resplendent as in gorgeous, magnificent. Dilmah Tea formed Resplendent Ceylon to create and manage a collection of small, luxury resorts offering a unique "trail" across Sri Lanka. They offer the upscale traveller a range of experiences linked to Sri Lanka's history & culture. Tea Trails was our maiden venture; Cape Weligama will be our second. Four more unique resorts are under development.
Ceylon Tea Trails
Tea Trails is the world's first tea bungalow resort, perched at an altitude of 1250 metresin Sri Lanka's panoramic Ceylon tea region, bordering the World Heritage Central Highlands.The four bungalows vary in size from 4 to 6 rooms & suites; 21 in all. Each bungalow is unique - lakeside Castlereagh & Summerville, Norwood with panoramic views and Tientsin, the most traditional colonial.
This is the ideal setting for trekking and biking against the breathtaking backdrop of mountains, lakes, winding roads and waterfalls. If you prefer to unwind, observe life on a working tea estate while being pampered by your butler, enjoy a spa treatment, croquet on the lawn or sunbathe alongside the pool. Or explore the lush tea fields & visit a century old factory for a gentle education in the art of Ceylon Tea. At Tea Trails, we promise you an unforgettable holiday that will rejuvenate your spirit in the heart of the magical world of Ceylon tea.
Cape Weligama, in southern Sri Lanka, is home to a gorgeous collection of 40 freestanding villas and suites. Infinite 270-degree panoramas of the Indian Ocean are celebrated from every curvaceous corner of this meticulously landscaped 12-acre luxury resort, perched on a 36m cliff top. Innovative wining and dining venues hug the lofty cape and are complemented by a spectacular crescent-shaped infinity pool seamlessly merging with the ocean."Nothing lies between the ocean off Ceylon's south coast and the vast frozen mass of the Antarctic." - Count de Mauny
