Goatfell in Kandapola

High up in the misty hills to the north east of Nuwara Eliya, Goatfell is an extensively refurbished century-old former tea estate manager’s bungalow. Surrounded by the lush tea bushes of the Concordia Estate, the four-bedroom bungalow hotel basks in vast mountain vistas and opens onto a garden with infinity pool. Interiors are contemporary and chic yet still resonate with historic hill country charm. Three striking and highly individual double bedrooms sit on each corner of the bungalow, benefitting from garden and tea country vistas. A fourth twin bedroom sits opposite one of these and when booked together the two can be combined to form a family suite. Each guestroom has a private furnished terrace offering direct garden access and an ensuite bathroom with a tub for warm soaks.

Nine Skies

Perched high above historic Demodara Railway Station, just 15-minutes from Ella, Nine Skies is dramatically positioned for surveying Sri Lanka’s tea-clad hills. Dating back over a century, this former tea estate manager’s bungalow has been extensively renovated into an indulgent five-bedroom boutique hotel. The five guestrooms are luxurious and inviting, and each has a private terrace with direct garden access and a bathroom with a soaking tub. Butlers tend to guests in the traditional way, pampering them with fine gourmet cuisine, chilled drinks and high-grown afternoon tea. From the front terrace, there is a panoramic view of verdant hills beyond the hotel’s lush lawn and infinity pool.
