We had a fantastic family (children 9 & 5) stay at the Tientsin Bungalow. It is a truly beautiful setting and the House was lovely. There is so much to do & also so little if that is what you are after. We did a bit of both, walking the tea trails in the morning then enjoying the house, tennis... More

We stayed at the Summerville bungalow, which is one of the most spectacular locations I have ever visited. The house is set up on a hill overlooking the widest part of the lake, and just sitting on the veranda with a cup of tea can transport you into a world of tranquility. The staff was so attentive, it felt as... More

My wife and I booked Norwood Bungalow for a short break amidst a hectic trip visiting family in Sri Lanka and it exceeded our expectations. We have travelled a lot and tea trails is one of our favs. The clean crisp air and the beautiful views of the tea estates made the location worth the 4.5 hour drive from Colombo.... More

The two-night visit at TienTsin was intimately luxurious and we were spoiled, pampered and cared for by our own accommodating butlers. The meals and tea times were artfully crafted and delicious and the terraced gardens and T-2 trail that encircled the tea plantation afforded us with photo ops of brightly clothed tea pluckers and endless photogenic views of the hillside...

With the press of a button near the door of our room, a butler appeared within seconds to fulfill our small request. Yes, we spent two wonderful nights in the Irvine Suite at the Norwood Bungalow. What can we say?!? This all-inclusive stay was perfect after bouncing along Sri Lankan roads for about a week. Four lovely meals (including High... More

Tea trails was our third resort in our 14 day trip in Sri-Lanka. We stayed here for 3 nights/4 days at the Summerville Bungalow. It was glorious! What an amazing amazing place. You have the most stunning views of the lake in this property - very very cool! And at the front, you're surrounded by rolling tea plantations. Simply divine.... More

Words cannot do justice to the amazing 2 days we've spent at the Norwood bungalow (21st-23rd August). From the moment we arrived, the entire staff were incredibly attentive, friendly and helpful. I couldn't possibly single anybody out as everyone was perfect. Our room (Wyatt) was beautiful and spacious and I would highly recommend booking this room - we definitely will... More

We stayed at Tea Trails for a couple of nights following our wedding in Galle. Our first night was spent in the Tientsin Bungalow which was beautiful, very secluded and green! This area is so different to that of Galle, the temperature a little chilly and a slower pace of life- just what we needed after a hectic week with... More

This has got to be one of my most memorable trips. The views are spectacular. The castlereagh bungalow overlooks the lake and at the backdrop, hills of tea plantations. We stayed at the Palmer room and couldn't ask for more:) we had a lovely view of the garden and the room had a bright cheery feel. Loved the breakfast and... More

We stayed stayed in the Tate suite at Castlereigh for 3 nights/4 days. Overall a fantastic experience/holiday/break which we would gladly repeat and recommend to others. Virtually everything was perfect so the following comments are really just constructive criticism to the management so they can get a 6th star :-) 1 - the fireplaces/chimneys need to be cleaned in the...
