When planning our honeymoon we knew from such great reviews on trip advisor that we wanted to visit the Tea Trails. From the moment we arrived we knew we had chosen wisely! We stayed at Summerville bungalow and the surroundings and decor were just stunning. There is an infinity pool at Summerville with views over the reservoir that will blow you away. We also visited Tienstin and Norwood, both of which were also lovely but Summerville seemed to have the edge for us. The service was just incredible, you will not find better. They cannot do enough for you and are friendly and they are so lovely you just won't want to leave them! Words wont do it justice but the food is so so so good, the chef is an absolute gem and will cook whatever you wish but please try whatever he recommends as you will not be disappointed. We went on the heavenly honeymoon package and highly recommend it. Just also to note, there are spa facilities so you can have treatments in your room, pure bliss! We also had a flower bath which was beautiful and so romantic with flowers picked from the bungalow gardens. Please believe every gushing word and go and visit this wonderful place yourselves.

Without doubt the most memorable and amazing place we have ever stayed!

The attention to detail was incredible, the food amazing (and so much of it!), service spot on, tea fantastic and accommodation and views just breathtaking.

Do not miss out on this place - definately the highlight of our honeymoon trip!!!

we enjoyed good time there, visiting 3 bungalows of Tea Trails - staying at Castlereagh, Norwood and visited Summervile for lunch. They are all lovely and each has its own character. Services are in general good and food are tasty. Be aware that there are leeches in the areas with grass, one of us got a bite.

We spent two wonderful nights at Tientsin, which is a truly special place. The location is stunning, the staff delightfully attentive, food excellent and the villa itself lovingly restored and maintained. I would call it elegant, not "shabby chic" as referred to by another reviewer. If you want gadgets in the room, then dont come to this historic building, but to a modern hotel.
The place is very very quiet, but the whole family, including 12 and 14 year old children, wished we could have stayed longer. Bird watching, walks through the tea plantations, the pool, croquet and a visit to the tea factory kept us comfortably amused

Room Tip: We were given a huge room with huge sitting room - the best of the four rooms in the villa, but all the rooms were delightful

We stayed at Castlereagh - one of the four huge bungalows that make up Ceylon Tea Trails - for four nights in early May and have been struggling ever since to think how it could be improved.

The rooms are relatively simple but beautifully and elegantly decorated, as well as being very large. The food was exceptional and the service was unlike any that I have ever experienced before. Attentive without being intrusive, with a remarkable eye for tiny details that make a huge difference (high tea served when and where you want it, staff that materialise out of nowhere just when you need them but who melt away when you just want to relax, a library of beautiful books, and an open bar that doesn't seek to squeeze a few more dollars out of you - other Relais & Chateaux hotels take note).

The views from the garden of the lake and the tea plantations are stunning, and you can truly disappear from the rest of the world for your stay.

It is a tiny hotel - I think just five rooms - but at no stage did we feel claustrophobic. On one day we had the entire place to ourselves.

Book now and go before the secret gets out and the place is rammed for years in advance.
