Heritance Tea Factory

Materializing through the heavy-footed mists of Kandapola, located approximately 15-KM from the chilled wonderland of Nuwara Eliya is ‘Heritance Tea Factory’. The idyllic hotel is set amidst a fabric of tea gardens, roughly 170-KM away from the medley of Colombo’s metropolitan sounds and colours.

Best Known For

Taking delight in a restful atmosphere, ‘Heritance Tea Factory’ encapsulates the warmth-infused-luxury that is characteristic of the old-world domiciles set in the 19th century Ceylonese countryside. A former tea factory converted into a sumptuous abode, the resort still pays homage to colonial themes and classical furnishings, wrapped in an aura of scenic beauty and timeless romance.

The Experience

The superior rooms, furnished with bathtubs, afford sweeping views of the charming Hethersett Plantation. Decorated with quaint décor and deep carpets, the premium rooms brim with old-world fascination. The executive floor deluxe rooms are dressed in colonial tones to convey you to a classical frame of mind. Commanding vistas of the flanking tea estates, these deluxe rooms also provide you with personal butler service. The junior suites feature separate seating areas whilst the Flowerdew suite which is the highest room of the resort comes with the promises of a dining area, Jacuzzi and views of the sleepy hamlet of Ragala and the Randenigala Reservoir. All rooms are fitted with heaters to make guests feel warm and cared-for.

Chasing the many flavours of global cookery crafts, ‘Heritance Tea Factory’ presents an evocative dining experience. Basking in the sifting room of the former tea factory, the ‘Kenmare Restaurant’ sets out a lavish buffet spread with à la carte options. Distinctive old-world girders, iron works and quaint tea crates that form serving stations whisk you into days when the setting was abuzz with the sights of sieving the dried leaves. The ‘Railway Carriage Restaurant’ sports the concept of ‘dining on wheels’, setting out an array of tuck-ins inside an elegantly furbished old railway carriage which transported tea via the Udupussellawa line in its glory days. Bask in a fine dining experience amidst quirky brass fittings and polished teak as you dine here. The former tea packing place transformed into a bar, the ‘Hethersett’ stocks a collection of spirits from across the globe and the ‘Goatfell Bar’ serves an array of teas, celebrating every form and taste of the tea leaf.

The spa at ‘Heritance Tea Factory’ features a variety of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments including skincare and therapies. The resort offers plenty of entertainment options to keep you interested including a gym, library, pool tables and board games.

Around and About

Partake in a tea tasting session arranged by the hotel and sample different regional teas. Wear a sarong or a saree and take tea plucking lessons from the local ladies. Head over to Nuwara Eliya fondly called ‘Little England’ and bask in its mountain-fresh air and breathtaking sights which include Gregory’s Lake, Victoria Park and Hakgala Botanical Gardens. Visit a strawberry farm or saunter the tea gardens. Enjoy the chilled atmosphere of the Devon Falls and St Clair’s Falls.

As you wander the dew-moist tea fields, bustling brown ladies warmly smile at you. You watch bewitched as swirls of tea leaves end up in the basket they carry on their back. A white mist marches across the mountains and burns the sun away, placing before you, a brand new photograph.
