Strathdon Bungalow Sri Lanka

Overview of Strathdon Bungalow

Planted in 1913, Strathdon Estate first belonged to the Scottish Ceylon Tea Company Ltd. One of the earliest plantations in the hill country, its success continues to this day with colourfully garbed tea pluckers dotting the lush green slopes just as they did a century ago.

Famed for their distinctive qualities and unique taste, the estate produces some of the world’s finest teas today.  The tea grown and processed at our Kenilworth Estate and factory is globally renowned as one of the best.

Built in the early 1900’s in the style of that era, the Strathdon bungalow was home to ‘planters’ who presided over the Estate. Its colonial ambience is preserved today in the elegant decor; the simple luxury and the warmth of service that makes the Strathdon Bungalow so unique.

Accommodation of Strathdon Bungalow

Step back in time and wake up to the charms of 19th century decor. Old prints of colonial heyday adorn the walls.

Heavy drapes, feather soft pillows, linen and lace and thick pile carpets - comfort embraces you from all around.  Snuggle up in a cosy armchair with an ancient volume on Tea, and admire the view of lush estates outside your window.

However, every modern facility and convenience - from hot showers to cable TV is also yours to indulge in.

The Garden of Strathdon Bungalow Hatton

Spread out over acres of land, the expansive garden offers a beautiful vista into the valley below and the rolling slopes of the tea estates that surround the bungalow.

The ancient groves of giant bamboo contrasts wildly but perfectly with the intricately landscaped look of an English country garden.  There are plenty of scenic spots to pick for an alfresco meal, a quiet read or just a few hours of solitary contemplation with just the birds and the view for company.
