Why We Like It
The infinity pool can be heated to ward off hill country temperatures in this sporty colonial-style manor house.
Langdale by Amaya sits on the sprawling Somersettea estate in Radalla. Surrounded by the Great Western Mountain Range and tea covered hills, this is an ideal destination from which to explore the central highlands and the Horton Plains National Park. The distance from here to Nuwara Eliya town is 10kms and will take about 30 minutes. About six hours from the airport, or consider an Air Taxi and arrive at Lake Gregory on Nuwara Eliya's outskirts within an hour. You can also head to the south coast via a daily sea plane service between Hatton and Koggala.
