Haldummulla Estate Bungalow
Price range :
Escape everyone and everything at Haldummulla Estate Bungalow, a small retreat set amidst an organic 50-acre tea estate in a quiet corner of Sri Lanka’s south-eastern hills. The bungalow is designed in a traditional style with a wrap-around balcony and bay windows, and is simply furnished with touches of colonial charm such as the four-poster beds and claw-foot bathtubs. Accommodating just eight people in total and with a cosy shared living area and dining room, Haldummulla Estate Bungalow is a great retreat for active families who would relish relaxed living and their own space as they spend their days roaming the spectacular surrounding tea hills. The bungalow can also be booked by the room, and there is a private suite which works wonderfully for couples seeking a romantic getaway. As well as the wonderful walking opportunities, guests can visit a local tea factory, or investigate the hidden historical sites concealed within pine forest, or perhaps just curl up with a book on the veranda whilst listening to the chirping birds and watching monkeys capering through the trees.
One of the bungalow’s two double rooms, this room is furnished with a four-poster bed and has an ensuite bathroom with shower and bathtub.

The perfect hideaway for you and your significant other, the Library Suite is separate from the bungalow with a beautiful lookout across the hills where you can enjoy al fresco dining and a cosy lounge area complete with fireplace. In contrast to the simple décor of the bungalow, the Library Suite is artistically furnished with shelves of books, colorful fabrics and quirky European antiques including a writing desk and gramophone. The ensuite bathroom boasts a shower and bathtub.
Traditional Sri Lankan cuisine is served, but the local cook is happy to try her hand at Western dishes – although she may need a little guidance. Alcohol is not available but guests are welcome to bring their own.
