Camellia Hills, Sri Lanka

Located up in the western hill country near Dickoya, Camellia Hills is a beautiful modern five – bedroom property, part of the Teardrop hotel portfolio. One of the best ways to reach the bungalow is by taking a train to Hatton which offers some of the most scenic train ride views in Asia. Alternatively, guests can also arrive by seaplane which lands on Castlereagh Reservoir before they are then transferred up to the bungalow along a tea lined estate road.

Each bedroom is uniquely designed, with a beautifully fresh and contemporary style. Cozy beds dressed in crisp cotton linen ensure a comfortable night’s sleep, giving guests the chance to wake up feeling refreshed in the most breathtaking location. Several of the rooms within the bungalow have unrivalled views across Castlereagh Reservoir and the surrounding tea fringed mountains.

The main lounge and open terrace also boast sweeping panoramas, offering some of Sri Lanka’s best views. It truly is the perfect location to enjoy a cold drink or afternoon tea as the sun dances across the water below. Within the pretty garden lies a 10-meter infinity swimming pool, the ideal place to relax or to cool off after a busy few hours of exploring.

Whilst Camellia Hills is a great location for some serious rest and relaxation, the property can arrange several activities. From the quintessential tea factory tour, to boat rides and trekking, there is something for everyone. For something extra special, the hotel can also organise lunch or cocktails at a secret viewing point within the hills.

Dining at the property is a relaxed and personalised experience, where one can dine on fresh local and international fare in either the dining room or open sided terrace. Sun-downers beside the crackling fireplace is also a must. As the stay is on an ‘all inclusive’ basis, beer and house wine, along with alcohol with mixers are included.
