Mandira Strathdon Bungalow,

Watawala

Price From : US $ 292.50

Introduction

The Strathdon tea estate was first planted in 1913 by the Scottish Ceylon Tea Company. The Strathdon bungalow, built at the time, was originally home to tea planters who worked on the estate. The present Sri Lankan owners, Sunshine Holdings Company, have refurbished this bungalow retaining its old world charm. Perched on a hill overlooking the tea valley, Mandira Strathdon is flanked by three giant bamboo groves. The bungalow opens out to a manicured lawn edged by a balcony terrace with spectacular mountain views. Bungalow interiors have wooden floors and fireplaces and are equipped with modern conveniences. The bungalow can be booked by the room or as a whole and can accommodate up to 10 guests. Mandira also has two other tea plantation bungalows located in Dickoya that take in guests.

Accommodation

Mandira Stathdon has four bedrooms that are comfortably furnished with twin or double beds. Extra bedding can be put in if necessary. The ensuite bathrooms have bathtubs and h/w showers.
