Colonial Hillside Bungalow in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka Cottage Vacation Rentals DeLuxe Family Cottage overlooking misty tea district of Haputale.

A holiday retreat to soothe your soul and refresh your senses, where the loudest sound you’ll hear is the clash of a butterfly’s wings. Step out of time, and feel the chaos of city traffic falling away as you climb to the cool, misty tea-country of Haputale in Sri Lanka, most romantic of vacation escapes, cradled within fold upon fold of a blue mountain range, at the heart of a landscape beloved of painters and poets. No crowds, no sweat, no racket, just gorgeous guest-rooms carved with loving care from an old colonial plantation house, with views from veranda and windows so breath-taking you’ll never want to leave.

Built in 1876, lovingly maintained over the years by owners who value style and privacy, this Bungalow blends its luxurious plantation past with present-day comfort to create an aura of peace and tranquillity. As dawn breaks, a vista unravels and a new history begins.

Blending memories of Europe with an authentic tradition of service unique to British colonial times, the Bungalow takes its cue from the long tradition of dining well at the Planter’s table.

Sit back and savour a fresh fruit juice after a morning’s work in tea-field and factory. Four o’clock: and it’s time for the ritual of English afternoon tea! Enjoy Sri Lanka’s famous high-grown tea, served on the veranda or on a manicured lawn fringed with flowers that are, appropriately, both English and exotic. Evening comes; recline at your ease in a planter’s chair on a moonlit veranda, sipping a leisurely drink before the mists roll in from the valley below. Finally, dinner: a four-course meal at once contemporary and colonial, served with fine wines and home-grown, garden-fresh vegetables, or a fabulous oriental feast. Weather permitting, outdoor dining can be arranged in the Bungalow’s beautiful garden.

And so to bed…
