Surrounded by mist swathed mountains in the centre of Sri Lanka, sits the hill capital Nuwara Eliya. Hotels and guest houses from the rustic to the grandiose dot the slopes and hide in lush green plantations. Tucked away, down its own little lane, close to the heart of town yet away from the bustle is the quaint old mansion of Jetwing St. Andrew’s.
Built around an old Tudor country house which served as a grand colonial residence during the days of British rule, here, you take a step back a hundred years and more to another era of old world charm and tradition, where customs of yore are still maintained to the letter. Full English breakfasts to enjoy, high tea on the lawn to linger over with the finest of plantation best freshly poured; with log fires lit, and stiff brandies poured to warm the chill of the night. Where the comforts of yesteryear cleverly conceal every must have amenity of today allowing you to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Leisurely surveys of green tea plantations, a round of golf on a world famous course, a little fishing on the lake – all the pastimes of the past await you on holiday with a difference. If a journey back in time is what you seek, our doors at Jetwing St. Andrew’s in Nuwara Eliya are always open to welcome you warmly back to the past.
