Located in the cool climes of Nuwara-Eliya surrounded with mountains and estates of Sri Lanka's very own "Tea", Heritance Tea Factory Hotel is one of the most unique hotels in the country. A modernized architectural masterpiece of an old rundown tea factory used under the British rule, this hotel offers guests the ambiance of the Colonial times while providing one of the best services to make your stay worthwhile.
Those seeking sanctuary at a Nuwara Eliya Hotel in Sri Lanka will find Heritance Tea Factory a refreshing change of pace. Named after the planter who founded the Hethersett estate in 1879, this is the highest elevated room in Sri Lanka, situated 2 km above sea level. It feels as if you are on top of the world, as windows on three sides of the bedroom provide a triple aspect of Ragala and Randeingala reservoir. A sofa bed can be converted to an extra bed for a family.
Boasting some of the best Nuwara Eliya accommodation, Heritance Tea Factory has 54 comfortable rooms on four floors, converted from the former withering lofts (this is where the freshly plucked leaves were laid out on jute mats for some of the moisture to evaporate).
The full-length windows that once helped to control the temperature for drying the leaves now ensure that the rooms are flooded with natural light, while providing spectacular views of the surrounding tea plantations. Wood is a key element of the rooms, with doors, shelves and cupboards (plenty of them) left in their natural colours.
The free bottles of Hethersett Water come from the hotel's own spring, pure and natural, and of course each room is supplied with our own tea leaves, as well as coffee and a fully stocked minibar. Furnishings are all made locally, from the prints showing local villagers bartering goods to custom-made toiletries.
JUNIOR SUITE ROOM
This interconnected master bedroom and separate single bedroom on the executive floor provide breathtaking views over the plantations around the hotel. Both rooms have 32-inch flat screen LCD TVs, and each has its own bathroom.
