Camellia Hills is a luxurious hotel set amidst Sri Lanka’s lush tea fields. This beautiful hotel sits on the side of a mountain overlooking emerald tea plantations and pine forests, and it offers breathtaking views of the famous Castlereagh Reservoir.
It is a perfect setting to discover Sri Lanka’s majestic hill region and it’s ideally suited to couples looking for a rural retreat.
The design of this contemporary new-build hotel takes inspiration from the traditional tea planter's bungalows that were built in this area during the colonial era, and the open-air living spaces and the modern yet cosy decor enhances the peaceful setting.
Camelia Hills has an intimate and homely atmosphere - you can enjoy the panoramic views from the open-plan living and dining area and cosy up in front of the double-sided fireplace during the cooler evenings (blankets are provided for chilly evenings).
With just five bedrooms Camellia Hills offers guests an experience akin to staying in a private house rather than a conventional hotel (note: rooms are booked on an individually, however the entire bungalow can be booked on an exclusive basis which is a perfect option for groups or families).
From the hotel you can discover the surrounding tea plantations either independently or with a local guide, learn about Sri Lanka’s hill-dwelling leopards at a local research station, or explore the Peak Wilderness Sanctuary and climb Adam’s Peak.
Alternatively you can relax beside the hotel’s 10m infinity pool and absorb the incredible mountain views, or enjoy afternoon tea in the lush gardens.
