Heritance Tea Factory - Nuwara Eliya

5 Star • Nuwara Eliya

The Hotel

The Heritance Tea Factory lies alone and unique, on the steep slopes of the tea plantations in Kandapola, in the sparsely-populated hills to the east of Nuwara Eliya. The Tea Factory was once exactly that, before it was painstakingly converted into a four-star resort. Pluck your own tea from the nearby Heathersett Estate and process it at the hotel’s miniature tea factory. The reception was once the drier room, the sifting and packing rooms now house a highly-recommended restaurant and bar. As a show of nostalgia for the years of steam travel — a narrow gauge railway ran here until 1940 — the Tea Factory’s fine-dining restaurant is a restored railway carriage, where you can enjoy a five-course meal without any risk of soot in your eye. But it is the setting that delights many — the gentle howl of the night-time breezes is likely to lull the most troubled mind to sleep. Heritance Tea Factory follows a strict green philosophy.
