Kirchchayn Bungalow Bandarawela

Peering around the historical Aislaby Estate in Bandarawela, 200-KM from the commercial buzz of Colombo, the ‘Kirchhayn Bungalow’ is deeply evocative of old-style estate cosiness.

Best Known For

A charming incarnation of a century-old British planter’s bungalow, this estate retreat brims with old-world charm - magic of firelight in gracious rooms, canopy drifts over four poster beds and gardens perfumed with old-fashioned flowers. Elegantly appointed in a tribute to the colonial heritage, five grand suites sit, affording views of the bowery gardens.

The Experience

Featuring high classic French windows, the Bostock Suite accommodates an elegant king size bed, dressing room and a lavish bathroom with an antique, claw-footed bath and walk-in shower. The Pyman Suite offers two queen size beds and a sitting area whilst the Wickwar Suite houses a few pieces of period furniture and a time-honoured collection of books. Equipped with a separate courtyard entrance, the Lushington Suite offers Rattan furniture. Nestled in a secluded area within the bungalow, the Taylor Suite offers a marble bathroom with a sunken bath, in an ode to romance.

The gracious living room with cosy furniture offers lovely space to unwind. Guests at the ‘Kirchhayn Bungalow’ can choose from an array of recreational options, including a swimming pool, board games, library, croquet and tennis. Sri Lankan and Western dishes made with fresh produce are served at the charming dining room, breezy veranda or on the manicured lawns.

Around and About

From glistening tea estates and mist-smudged mountains, to breezy weather and a sleepy disposition, Bandarawela is a paean to pastoral beauty. Explore the idyllic Welimada Basin and ramble the tea gardens of the Aislaby Estate. Be whisked away to the breathtaking gardens of Leeds Castle in Kent whilst walking along the rose terraces of the Adisham Bungalow. Make an excursion to the bucolic town of Ella with its aura of charms like Ravana Ella Falls, Demodara Nine Arch Bridge, Ella Rock and Little Adam’s Peak.

Hours bloom into mirth around a rosy fireplace, in a British bungalow set in the deeps of the countryside. Outside, the Aislaby estate creams in the moonlight…
