Places to visit
The Sri Lankan city of Nuwara Eliya provides a rich, cultural and generally enjoyable experience for those who visit it. It is often referred to as ‘Little England’ by the Sri Lankan tourism industry, but this can only be truly understood by those who have been here before and seen it for themselves. Guests to the hotel can take great delight in visiting the St. Clair’s waterfall (3km west of Talawakele), which is one of the widest in Sri Lanka and known as the “Little Niagara of Sri Lanka”. For history lovers, go straight to the Pedro Tea Estate to see where your morning cup of tea comes from.
The hotel is placed right above the race course, meaning that guests do not have to travel far at all to be a spectator on this activity. Alternatively, there is the Seetha Amman Temple, which is on the way to the Hakgala Gardens. This spot is home to a rich history and many interesting tales, so is definitely worth a visit when staying in the area. Speaking of the Hakgala Gardens, this pleasantly dishevelled attraction is just 10km south-east of Nuwara Eliya, and serves as a peaceful day out for tourists.
