Accommodation rating: Superior
In the heart of Sri Lanka's tea country, Kelburne Mountain View is perched at the edge of a mountain ridge with sublime views over five provinces. The three cottages, dotted among rolling hills and valleys, are set amid a 20-hectar working tea estate. The simply furnished yet charming colonial style cottages are self-contained and feature either two or three bedrooms, a lounge, dining area and bathroom. The manager and his staff are always around to ensure that guests' requirements are met. A dedicated staff member is usually assigned to each cottage and meals are served either in the private dining area of your cottage or in the garden. There is also a small restaurant that is used if the guests prefer to have a group dinner or lunch. The set menu usually offers a choice of Sri Lankan or international cuisine. Leisure facilities include the opportunity to explore the tea estate by foot, indoor board games and, for those who prefer something outdoor, there is a basketball hoop and badminton nets in the garden.
