We stayed one night at the Summerville and one night at the Norwood. Both are beautiful properties but I preferred the Summerville. It is a smaller bungalow with only 4 rooms. It is more intimate and the view is breathtaking. You can have an easy walk through the tea plantations in front of the bungalow and just take in the... More

a fabulous experience. We stayed a night each at Tientsin and Summerville. very different bungalows, both with amazing food, views and staff. Tientsin felt like stepping back in time- a beautiful grand old home, huge bathroom and verandah and a beautiful garden. Summerville is smaller- only 4 rooms, with lake views and also beautiful surrounding tea plantations- very attentive staff.... More

The location is amazing if you want to stay at the hotel and see sights as the tea factories, Adams Peak and enjoy the mountains. The other famous sites of candy etc are quite far off. Not because of the distance, but because a small distance is very slow to travel because of the state of the roads. The hotel... More

Masterfully run hotel providing as close to a private living experience as possible. Hotel grounds are exceptionally serene sitting atop vast valleys and mountains of green. Dining experience was also flawless as chef provides each guest a personalized experience. Overall 10/10 experience. I hope to return someday.

Ok, it is extraordinarily expensive, but 'before you die' must experience. beautiful place, amazing food, staff is wonderful! we went there with 3 kids ages 1,4 and 6, and the long drive was still worth doing! Had NYE dinner there with kids sleeping in our room and the baby monitor on. Really worked... The pool is not he warmest, but... More

We arrived at night and so when we awoke it made the experience even more magical - stunning views awaited us at breakfast - sitting on the veranda of the Tientsin bungalow. Sadly we only spent two nights here - certainly wanted longer. The bungalow is set in glorious countryside with a lovely garden and pool. Food and service are... More

After driving for many hours from Kandy, through a beautiful road up the mountains and through the tea fields, we arrived at Castlereigh. Beautiful lodge, only 5 rooms, was a private House of tea planters. Very British. Beautiful view to the lake thow it was a bit empty for it was not the rainy season. (But thank God for that...)...

We stayed at tea trails/Summerville bungalow last week for 3 nights. A truly unforgettable experience! The views from the bungalow over the reservoir were breathtaking. Food was fantastic, some of the best we've tasted in Sri Lanka thanks to our chef- Chaminda who prepared amazing dishes everyday. Service from all the staff was first class in the bungalow. If you...

We stayed at Tientsin for two nights. We had a lovely room overlooking a garden and spacious bathroom. The garden was beautiful with a lovely infinity pool. The service was amazing with someone to suggest or help with the activities available. The chef came each day to discuss what we would like to eat and all the meals including a... More
