About Camellia Hills
Camellia Hills is located near Dickoya and Hatton, in the south western hill country. Spectacularly located high up on the side of a verdant valley overlooking Castlereagh Reservoir, and surrounded by emerald green tea estates, the hotel's ample gardens, living and dining areas and five individually designed guest rooms all share in stunning panoramas. This is a contemporary interpretation of a tea bungalow-style hotel, offering high-end personalised butler service, exceptional food and all-inclusive rates (includes three meals, snacks, high tea and drinks).
Guests can take their pick from a number of experiences at the hotel including picturesque guided tea estate walks, village and tea factory visits and nature trails. Leopards live in the surroundings and guests could visit a leopard research station to learn more about these elusive cats and see the photographs generated by their camera traps.
Located close to Dickoya and Hatton above the picturesque Castlereagh Reservoir in the south western hills.
How to get there
Camellia Hills is located 10km from Hatton, above the picturesque Castlereagh Reservoir in the south western hills. Air Taxis land on the reservoir. Colombo is a 4.5-hour (131km) drive away and the Bandaranaike International Airport, 121-kilometres away. Nuwara Eliya is a two-hour drive, and it's possible to visit this colonial-era town in a day while Adam's Peak, the island's most sacred mountain and pilgrimage spot, is an hour's drive away (and easy to visit from the hotel).
When to go
As Tea Trails is at an elevation of 4000 feet, the climate is cooler and less humid than in Colombo and on the coast. Typically, cool mornings, warm days and cool evenings. Daytime temperatures are comfortable in the low to mid 20âs C and at night can drop to 10c hence the fire places in all bungalows. The driest part of the year is between December and April. June- July and October-November are wetter months due to the monsoon. However, the ambience of the bungalows is such that youâd think thereâs nothing better than curling up in front of a fire with a good book.
Camellia Hills has 5 fan cooled rooms, all inclusive rates and spectacular lake and mountain views. There is a 10-metre infinity swimming pool and open plan living and dining areas. The Lush garden edged by tea bushes is lovely to relax in. The restaurant offers international cuisine & picturesque dining.
