The Planter’s Bungalow – Boutique Hotel

3/5

Overview: The bungalow is located on the southern fringes of the tea plantation area established in the late 19th century during the colonial period. The extensive garden & grounds support a rare collection of tropical fruit trees as well as timber varieties where you will be welcome to retreat to its peaceful glades.

The property was originally constructed in the late 19th century by a Scottish tea planter, Malcolm George. He left in 1948 when the newly independent government of Ceylon nationalised the tea industry. He was paid one-pound sterling for each acre of his 90-hectare estate.

There is easy access to the village of Ella, the Ravana Falls and the tea towns of Bandarawela and Badulla. Trains and buses allow access to most parts of the country. Nuwara Eliya and Kandy are to the North and linked by rail to Ella the Yala National park, the newer Udawalawe Park which hosts the largest wild elephant herds in Asia and the famous bird sanctuary of Bundala can be accessed by jeep. It is a two-hour journey south from Karandagolla.
