Ceylon Tea Trails Castlereagh,


Price From : US $ 759.42


Nestled in a wooded dell close to a lake, this century-old bungalow offers unrivalled water views and superb garden suites. Elegant parquet floors with open fireplaces in the dining and drawing rooms evoke recollections of a bygone colonial era.

The Ceylon Tea Trails Experience:

In central Sri Lanka, lies the Golden Valley of Tea. This is home to old Ceylon. Here, five classic colonial bungalows, built for British tea estate managers in the days of the Raj, have been caringly restored by Dilmah Tea with the cooperation of Bogawantalawa Tea Estates. Each bungalow is different: Summerville has the air of a country cottage, Castlereagh has an eclectic style, Tientsin is unashamedly colonial, Norwood is more modern, abounding with 1960's character. Summerville and Castlereagh are situated opposite each other on the shores of the Castlereagh lake. Dunkeld is 30 minutes from Castlereagh, Norwood is at the other end of the valley about 15 minutes away by car and Tientsin is about 30 minutes away in the next valley. Each house comes with its own manager, chef, butler and houseboys and between four and six luxurious suites. And when Tea Trails say all-inclusive, they mean it. No properties in Red Dot's extensive portfolio are more consistently praised for their excellence.


Castlereagh has three types of suites: luxury rooms, garden suites and master suites, all named after former planters in the estate. Rooms are sold on an all-inclusive basis, including breakfast, lunch, an afternoon cream tea, dinner (inclusive of wine), and soft and non-premium alcoholic drinks.


  • Swimming pool
  • Bicycle hire
  • Room service
  • Child friendly

The bungalow includes a swimming pool, croquet lawn, library and various indoor games. Delicious meals will be served up by a butler in your room, in the dining room, or on the terrace overlooking the pool. The grounds are extensive and include summerhouses where Ceylon’s finest tea will be served.
