Our Resorts – Dilmah Tea’s Hotel Collection

One magical Tea Island. Three extraordinary resorts.

Three Relais & Chateaux resorts; Tea Trails, Cape Weligama & Wild Coast Tented Lodge, form an enchanting “Route de Bonheur (Happiness)” from tea fields to clifftop beach & safari lodge. This “best of Sri Lanka” circuit, created by the family-owned Dilmah Tea Company, features distinctively original resorts, connected by a thread of peerless service.

Ceylon Tea Trails is an icon for small luxury resorts, comprising of five restored historic tea planter residences, perched at an altitude of 1250 meters in Sri Lanka’s panoramic Ceylon tea region. The 27 rooms & suites with period furnishings, gracious butler service, and gourmet cuisine create an ambience that has made Tea Trails the gold standard for luxury in Sri Lanka. They are connected by walking and biking trails through scenic tea gardens.

Wild Coast Tented Lodge is adjacent to the Yala National Park, renowned for its leopard population. This spectacular luxury tented camp is situated on a rugged, empty beach, overlooking the Indian Ocean. The use of arched fabric structures allows each of the 28 Cocoon pods to take on the shape of the rocks and boulders that lay scattered nearby. The vaulted bamboo restaurant and bar overlook a large freeform pool.

Thirty minutes east of Galle, Cape Weligama inhabits 12 tropical acres atop a singular promontory rising 40 metres above the Indian Ocean. Stunning panoramas await you, naturally complementing the 39 private retreats designed by one of Asia's most celebrated architects, Lek Bunnag. An array of dining venues capture Weligama's iconic sunsets, as does the 60-metre crescent-shaped infinity pool that appears to flow seamlessly into the shimmering sea.

On the Drawing Board


On the magical tea-island of Sri Lanka, beneath waves of forest green, Resplendent Ceylon’s trail of small, luxury Relais & Chateaux enclaves will soon welcome a new destination.

Tucked in the island's cultural heart, near the World Heritage 500AD Sigiriya rock fortress, the new 35 room resort will steep guests in natural wonder and bring to life unforgettable Sri Lankan hospitality in a pocket of biophilic design set within an ancient forest. Luxe tree pods connected by canopy walks will dot the forest at various heights, overlooking the lake and mountains.

London-based interior and concept designer Geraldine Dohogne will pull guests back to the era of Victorian explorers of old Ceylon when they first discovered the hidden ancient Buddhist civilization in the 1890’s.

Architecture is by URBNarc, known for the award winning Alila Seminyak in Bali and several other striking resorts.

Amidst paddy fields, ancient rock fortresses and cave temples, a peaceful oasis of local culture and warmth will welcome guests home.
