I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the King Fern Bungalow. It is a wonderful place to stay, especially for solo female travellers. I felt as though I had been adopted (as one of the family) during my time there. Wasantha and Chitra went out of their way to make my stay as comfortable as possible. They provided a complimentary teapot, from the surrounding tea plantations, upon arrival and on the morning of my departure. Wasantha can provided guided tours of the tea plantations and may accompany you on your hikes as well. He will gladly organise a tuk tuk for you. King Fern Bungalow is perched on a hill and boasts beautiful views of Nuwara Eliya below, however you will have to take a tuk tuk (up to Rs200) to reach it. There is free wifi and the family room also has broadband. My room was very clean and everything was in order. I had freshly cut flowers on the table from their beautiful garden. The family room also had a very spacious balcony and the rooms were fairly large. Wasantha told me and another solo traveller about the history of Nuwara Eliya before we settled down by the fireplace. I would highly recommend it. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!
