Camellia Hills, a newly-built five-bedroom boutique hotel in Dickoya, Sri Lanka has joined The Sri Lanka collection. The hotel is managed by Teardrop Hotels, and is a sister property to The Wallawwa and Fort Bazaar.
Located high up on the side of a valley overlooking Castlereagh Reservoir, and surrounded by emerald green tea estates, the hotel’s gardens, living and dining areas and five individually designed guest rooms form part of a “contemporary interpretation of a tea bungalow”, offering personalised butler service and all-inclusive rates (three meals, snacks, high tea and drinks).
Colombo is a 4.5-hour (131km) drive away and the Bandaranaike International Airport, 121-kilometres away. Colonial town Nuwara Eliya is a two-hour drive away and Adam’s Peak, the island’s most sacred mountain, is an hour away. On-site activities include guided tea estate walks, village and tea factory visits, nature trails and a visit to a leopard research station.
“We are delighted that Teardrop’s new tea country hotel Camellia Hills is joining The Sri Lanka Collection and we very much look forward to introducing our tour operator partners to this outstanding new boutique property over the coming months,” commented Eleanor Milner, director of The Sri Lanka Collection.
