Lovely estate perched beautifully among tea gardens, serene, peaceful, relaxing with an amazing atmosphere. Book it, you will love it & can't go wrong. Food is very good, service is par excellence with boys like Daya, Amila & the others!

Governor's Mansion is only 3 1/2 hours from Colombo international airport. This is taking it very easy and stopping for comfort breaks if you so require them. It is via a beautiful route.
