We chose the Tea Trails for the first part of our honeymoon and stayed for 3 nights in April 2013. There was a very long and slow journey from Sri Lanka airport, but it was well worth it when we arrived. It was just heaven. No check in - just taken straight through to our room and offered a drink. No room keys - just like being at home! A lovely small bungalow with about 8 guests. The chef comes to ask you at each meal whether you like what he's intending on cooking for the next meal and tailors it accordingly. The food was amazing. Everything we had was gorgeous. As the bungalow is small you feel like you have your own private chef. The quiet veranda where you enjoy your meals have beautiful views over the hills and the manicured gardens and it's so peaceful. One evening we were peckish whilst enjoying a drink in the lovely lounge and the chef cooked us up some freshly prepared homemade spring rolls - so good. Each morning you can ask for tea to be brought to you in bed! The service is fantastic and it's a truly unique experience like no other place we've ever stayed. Make sure you take a trip to the tea factory tour organised by the bungalow. We would love to return one day! Be prepared to come away feeling full! Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner...all delicious!
