A world of colonial charm that blends perfectly with its sublime surroundings of rolling tea plantations and emerald green forests. A beautifully restored bungalow, dating back to the days of the British Empire, sits amidst the lush vegetation. Hanthana is recognized as one of the Sri Lanka’s most picturesque regions and the panoramic view from our bungalow will not disappoint. This heritage residence is reminiscent of a by-gone era, revived to accommodate every whim and fancy of the discerning traveller. An esplanade of columns, almost Grecian in its grandeur, awaits your arrival along with a personal butler who shall attend to you throughout your stay.
A host of activities abound, be it a challenging hike or a gentle stroll through our sprawling gardens, a spot of bird watching or a game of croquet on the sun-drenched lawn. Meal times are a highly personalized affair, with authentic Sri Lankan and Western cuisine on offer. Perhaps freshly prepared local fare for lunch – fragrant yellow rice accompanied by a delectable rainbow of flavourful curries followed by a dinner of roasted rack of lamb, cooked to perfection.
Your experience of colonial Sri Lanka will begin at the train station itself, where you will be picked up in our vintage Series Land Rover and driven to the Estate in the classic style of a British planter, stationed in these magical hills over a century ago.
