Jetwing Warwick Gardens Sri Lanka

Overview of Jetwing Warwick Gardens

High up amongst the majestic peaks in the central hills of Sri Lanka, nestles the quaint hill capital of Nuwara Eliya. Bungalows, guest houses and hotels from the extravagant to the rustic sit both near and far from its bustling town centre.

If you are seeking seclusion at its best, a place to return to, in time and space, this is where you will find it. Staying at Jetwing Warwick Gardens will be a time to treasure. Well over a century ago an old colonial bungalow built in the style of a Scottish country mansion was rediscovered hidden high in the hills and lovingly restored even beyond its former glory – the hearths burning in welcome yet again.

Today, resplendent in its isolate beauty, traditions of yesteryear remain with a generous helping of native warmth: a wonderful little hideaway of utter privacy for those who seek the reassurance of a ‘home from home’ experience and a little glimpse of past glory.

Surrounded by breathtaking vistas of mountains as far as the eye can see, Jetwing Warwick Gardens, Ambewela is ready and willing to share its home-grown warmth and unfold its charms on all those who yearn for precious days of stillness in every way.

Location of Jetwing Warwick Gardens - Nuwara Eliya

The peaceful haven of Jetwing Warwick Gardens is located at an elevation of 5782 feet (app. 1606 meters) above sea level in the farm town of Ambewela a few miles away from the upcountry capital of Nuwara Eliya. Holidays in this mountain resort town is highly popular with both locals and tourists who come in search of its cooler climes.

Around 170km from the International airport in Katunayake, the journey to Nuwara Eliya is a 5-6 hour drive through breathtaking landscape. Built by the British it sits in a high valley flanked by mountain ranges. The cool weather and lush slopes being reminiscent of the ‘home country’ earned it the name ‘little England’ and was created likewise with official buildings and residences built to the style of that era. With many remaining to this day, the town continues to be a living legacy to a time passed by.

An Edwardian style bungalow Jetwing Warwick Gardens was once the proud home of a Scottish tea planter – a beautiful residence now lovingly restored to its former elegance, it is surrounded by beautiful views and landscaped grounds.

The extended seating area with its bay window gives an unbroken 180 degree view of the entire Uva Basin – high mountains and deep valleys far, far below. The strategically placed sofa tempts you to sit there for hours at end.

Dining of Jetwing Warwick Gardens

As a tranquil upcountry haven of relaxation where traditions of yesterday radiate at every turn, dining at Jetwing Warwick Gardens is a one of a kind experience as well. Here, the old colonial custom of having resident cooks or ‘Appu’ is still continued and every meal is prepared with utmost devotion by these culinary craftsmen exactly as their predecessors did for their masters centuries ago.

Good old fashioned plantation cooking has always used fresh home grown ingredients – and we continue this tradition to this day. Vegetables fresh from our garden, eggs and milk from our farm, all of which, you can visit and even help to bring ‘home’ to turn into the most delightful dishes you can enjoy. The menu of course, is yours to dictate – Just state your choice, Western or Eastern style and it will be done to perfection.

You can take your meals at the beautifully furnished dining room, or choose anywhere else you prefer – indoors or out. Many signature dining experiences are yours too: a romantic garden BBQ, a traditional English breakfast on the lawn – or in bed if you wish so. Enjoy an alfresco lunch, or a picnic in the hills; high tea on the lawn or at the lounge perhaps, with a range of single estate Jetwing Teas to select from. And of course the well stocked bar in the drawing room will keep you ‘liquid’ anytime, day or night.
