Bungalow Facilities

Your bungalow is a haven for relaxation and connecting with loved ones

Unwind, observing 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.

Swimming Pools

All bungalows offer large swimming pools with gorgeous views. Enjoy a refreshing dip after exploring the trails. The pools at Dunkeld, Summerville and Castlereagh overlook the lake and Norwood and Tientsin vistas of tea carpeted mountains.

Butler Service

The Tea Trails butlers pride themselves on offering the best service in Sri Lanka. Anticipating every whim yet unobtrusive, they will attend to every detail and provide you with a memorable holiday.

Garden Games

All bungalows have a croquet lawn where you can unleash devious tactics, a Pimms No 1 in hand. A Mr Woolcott is rightly quoted in The Guinness Dictionary of Sports Quotations as saying “The higher and dirtier croquet player can use the guile of a cobra and the inhumanity of a boa constrictor.”


Complementing the magnificent vistas of lakes, hills, valleys and lush tea plantations are the bungalows’ own charming gardens. They are at once very English and yet entrancingly exotic. Visitors to Tea Trails have the glorious stands of giant bamboo at Norwood to admire, or the profusion of wild banks that tumble down the slopes of Tientsin.


Soak in our heated outdoor hot tubs at Dunkeld, Tientsin and soon Castlereagh. The Owner’s Cottage at Dunkeld has a private jacuzzi overlooking the lake.


Planters of old relished an afternoon game on the clay court at Tientsin bungalow, after a hard day in the fields. If not staying at Tientsin, visit for lunch or afternoon tea in our vintage Land Rover, with a game of tennis thrown in.

Summer Houses

Summer Houses in the lush gardens are an ideal spot to meditate in, enjoy a candlelit meal or a drink in, or perhaps play a board game with the family.


Ceylon Jungle Fowl. Parrots, House Sparrows, Doves, Coucal, Mynahs, Sunbirds, Honey Suckers, Flower Peckers, Streaked-throated Woodpecker, Rose-ringed Parakeet, Common Kingfisher, Oriental Magpie Robin are some of the birds found in our gardens.
