The mountain resort town from colonial days
Where tradition and tea blend
Nuwara Eliya
Renowned as ‘Little England’, here in the tea country, traditions, breathtaking views and cold climes reign supreme. Hidden away high in the central mountains at an altitude of over 6000 feet, Nuwara Eliya is the resort capital of Sri Lanka. With the weather to match, the British tea planters of the mid 19th century created a replica of their home country.

A sense of timelessness still prevails in the ambience with its mainly colonial architecture, the park, golf course, racing track, boating lake and grand period style mansions, which now serve as hotels.
