Hill Rise, Nuwara Eliya by Edwards Collection

Set in a private garden in the British-countryside-like city of Nuwara Eliya, is the colonial holiday bungalow, ‘Hill Rise’. The exquisite cottage is located 5 hours’ drive from Colombo and 2 ½ hours’ drive from Kandy.

Best Known For

Themed around the concept of horses, stables and horse racing, this four-bedroom villa in Nuwara Eliya sits on a manicured lawn with flowering hedges, in the shadow of the mesmerizing Lake Gregory. A gracious transformation of a former tea planter’s bungalow, dated photographs of old horse-racing meets adorn the walls, whisking one away to the good old days.

The Experience

Lovingly crafted to keep guests cosy and contented, this luxury villa in Nuwara Eliya houses 4 tastefully-appointed bedrooms. Accommodating up to 8 adults and 4 children, ‘Hill Rise’ sets the perfect tone for a family holiday retreat. Affording a clear view of the lovely gardens and the lake beyond, the La Dona Room features a genuine antique four poster bed. Appointed to accommodate a family of three, the Natalama Room rejoices in stunning works of art. Reminiscent of rooms in Gentlemen’s Clubs in Old London, the Governor’s Room offers a 400-year-old calamander writing table, fireplace and lavishly-carpeted floors. The snug and tranquil oasis of the Queen’s Room is a magnet in the eyes of loved ones wishing for sequestration.

Ideal for some cosy downtime, the living spaces at this cottage-style accommodation are equipped with fireplaces and plush sofas. Breakfast is served on the lake-facing lawn whilst dinner is arrayed at the cosy interior dining area. After a day of rambling in the countryside, enjoy a pick-me-up body massage by the house’s own masseur.

Around and About

Taking its beauty sleep in the midst of cushiony mountains, the idyllic town of Nuwara Eliya visually resembles the English countryside of the 19th century. Saunter rambling tea gardens and patches of ruby strawberries. Take in the flower-filled captivation of the Hakgala Botanical Gardens. Wander the outlandish lawns of the Victoria Park. Witness stunning cascades, such as St Clair’s and Devon Falls, unleashing their age-old music unto the world, in a silvery roar.

The first light of dawn has touched the world. As sunrise wakes-up the craggy hills from their sleepy monochrome, you watch mesmerized, leant on the window sill.
