Delicious, Australia : December 2011: Ceylon Tea Trails
For the full rock-star arrival, charter an air taxi through SriLankan Air Taxi (srilankan.
aero). You can fly from Colombo to the retreat on the shores of Castlereagh Lake in approximately 30 minutes. Alternatively, fly into culture-rich Kandy, then drive for two hours, or take the scenic option and drive from Colombo through jaw-dropping mountain passes and vibrant villages.
Owned by the Dilmah Tea Company, Ceylon Tea Trails boasts four colonial-chic bungalows, dotted among the lush tea fields of Sri Lanka’s stunning hill country. Manicured gardens, around-the-clock butler service and deep verandahs that were made for morning tea or an evening G&T give the original plantation bungalows an air of elegance and a sense of ‘anything goes’.
The houses boast four to six bedrooms each, so they’re ideal if travelling with family or
friends (doubles from $472, including meals and drinks). All feature sumptuous living areas with fireplaces and graceful dining rooms. The master suite at Summerville bungalow houses a four-poster net-draped bed, separate lounge room and a vast bathroom with freestanding tub.
