Hatton, or the ‘City of Lights, is perched 1900 meters above sea level, amidst lush vegetation. It was once the favorite hill station of colonial British tea planters. This area is famous for tea plantations, cascading waterfalls and colonial buildings, many of which resemble old English cottages. It is also home to Asia’s oldest golf course, which the city is built around.
Nestled among the hills of the Dikoya region in central Sri Lanka at over 5000 feet above sea level is Ceylon Tea Trails, four classic colonial era bungalows boasting spectacular location, butler service and fine cuisine.
