Sri Lanka: Luxury Uncovered!

Written on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 by

Sri Lanka blends the best elements of post-colonial luxury with a rich, vibrant culture. Its pristine beaches and jungle-clad hills also hide some of the most luxurious getaways out there, some staff members from Emma Whiting Travel have discovered on their trips to the country. And the history? Well… The city of Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka’s ancient capital, has many ruins dating back more than 2,000 years. It has to be seen to be believed.

It’s now even easier to get there with new direct flights from Melbourne. Relax with a cuppa and enjoy this first hand experience of staying on a tea plantation.

 “On my recent trip to Sri Lanka, I was treated to a stay at Tea Trails one of the most magnificent properties I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Nestled in the rolling hills of a functioning tea plantation, five bungalows were set amongst sweeping lawns dotted with flowering roses and agapanthus.

Connected by buggy or tranquil walking trails, each bungalow had its own unique design, its own character and its own view. Sitting in the Dunkeld Bungalow and gazing out across the infinity pool towards the endless hills beyond, I sat and enjoyed the delights of a bygone era, content with high tea and lemon sponge cake. 

The cuisine, whether it be Sri Lanken or Western, is Michelin Star-rated, all with full butler inclusiveness in the epitome of colonial luxury.  Be sure to take an early morning stroll through the plantations to see tea picking workers, clad in brightly coloured saris and backdropped by the verdant hills and early morning mist – truly an unforgettable experience.” – Emma Whiting Travel.
