Quiet, intimate and stylish
Explore tea plantations, walk to waterfalls or take a boat ride to a church, before returning to this delightfully modern cocoon of luxury hidden away in the hills
Hidden away in a carpet of lush green tea plantations, Camellia Hills is a spectacularly stylish boutique hotel with breathtaking scenery and a delightfully secluded feel, ideal for those who want to sip their tea or read their book in peace. The hotel overlooks Castlereagh Reservoir and is superbly situated to explore Sri Lanka's famous hill country.
With just 5 bedroom Camellia Hills is intimate and personal, retaining a homely feel whilst displaying more than a splash of elegant sophistication. The rooms are spacious and airy with contemporary furniture, en-suite bathrooms and beautiful panoramic views. Once again the scenery is the star of the show from the terraces and pool, and it's easy to spend time here relaxing and just soaking in this incredible atmosphere. Dining at Camellia Hills is a rather enjoyable affair. Begin with sundowners on the terrace before tucking into delicious freshly prepared meals - both Sri Lankan and International dishes are on offer. Then when the evening becomes a little chilly, cosy up in front of the fire and start planning tomorrow's adventures.
Visiting tea plantations and gardens are of course a highlight of a stay in this part of Sri Lanka, and there are numerous walking trails or drives that you can enjoy from Camellia Hills. Tea factory visits can also be arranged, where you'll get to learn about production, and of course do a little tea tasting at the end. Other activities include walking to a nearby waterfall (don't forget to take a picnic with you!), or a boat ride on the reservoir to see Warleigh Church, built in 1878 by the British.
