Aitken Spence Hotels welcomes back guests to its hillside property Heritance Tea Factory, a one of its kind hotel in Nuwara Eliya.

Promising panoramas from the highest elevation in Sri Lanka, Heritance Tea Factory is a hillside sanctuary that guests can escape to break away from the mundane.

The hallmark concept of a 19th century tea factory converted to a resort is reflected throughout the stay with the quaint décor and cozy ambience.

Known as ‘Little England’ for the serene vistas and colonial-style town that resonates the British era, the highlands have tantalising views of vast tea plantations enveloped with textured mountains.

The crisp air and the cool climes make for a tranquil space to boost creativity while sipping on Ceylon brew.

Apart from working at the comfort of the lush countryside, at Heritance Tea Factory guests can explore the heritage and tea culture of the destination. Guests can choose among signature dining choices including a distinctive tea bar, traditional high-tea and fine dining in a train carriage.

For those with a penchant to explore, the resort’s tea-based excursions would be an ideal treat to discover while unwinding. Choose from tea plucking, tea factory tours and tea tasting, taking a picturesque trek to take in the fresh air or a tour around the village to embrace the locality and culture.
