The spirit of Ceylon Tea Trails
Hattan is encapsulated by spectacular natural beauty and features lush rolling hills, dazzling vistas, and a beautiful multi-textured undulation of hills, blanketed in lush tea estates. Interspersed with sparkling lakes, towering pine forests, and charming churches, Hattan is situated to the south of Nuwara Eliya in Sri Lanka. This vibrant town in the heart of Sri Lanka’s hill country is a significant area for most upcountry tea growing regions, and is a central hotspot for pilgrims, as it is in close proximity to the conical mountain, Adam’s Peak.
A beautifully charming resort, bordering the World Heritage Central Highlands, the Ceylon Tea Trails feature five restored colonial era tea planter residences, with exquisite furnishings, and impressive, discreet butler service. Exuding a tasteful, warm ambiance, each bungalow features old wooden desks complete with real stamps to send letters, beautiful sitting areas and cushioned cane chairs. Take in views of the spectacular sweeping mountains and vast lush expanse of tea fields.
Immerse yourself in the stunningly tranquil environment, and meander on a trail through the picturesque Ceylon tea gardens. When the clouds gently roll in, tuck yourself under your duvet, with a snapping wood fire keeping you cosy, and the dazzling views luring you to relaxation. Relish tea on the spectacular lawns, surrounded by the fragrance of roses and the beauty of spring crocus, with delectable strawberries and cream, and Dundee cake. Choose to have lunch al fresco next to the sparkling pool and revel in a sublime four-course dinner. Taste superb fresh ingredients, and home grown vegetables, herbs and teas, from the estate. Meander along lush trails and discover the intricate art of making tea on a Tea Experience. Watch the tea pluckers nimbly pick the tea leaves, and explore the factory where the transformation from leaf to tea happens. Revel in tranquil spa treatments, venture on charming walks and hikes in the beautiful expanse, and play a fun game of tennis.
