The luxury hotel is famous for its beautiful, sweeping views of tea plants, but offers much more besides, including plush, comfortable rooms and an infinity pool that will be the envy of your Instagram followers. Believe us.

|Learn about tea planting (as well as an important lesson on colonialism) where it all started. Right here on the hotel’s doorstep Loolecondera. In 1867, James Taylor started a ‘small’ tea farm here. It took six years for him to brew the perfect cup and with that, he sent Ceylon tea back to London. The rest is history.|
