Hotels in HaputaleBack
Haputale sits on the southern edge of Sri Lanka’s hills and boasts some of the most glorious vistas in the region. It attracts those seeking solitude and tranquility, and ramblers who want to make the most of the cooler climate and magnificent views by exploring Haputale on foot. Discover some of the island’s best viewpoints and gaze all the way down to the south coast, and visit Lipton’s Seat, the point from which Scotsman Sir Thomas Lipton used to gaze out across his extensive tea estates.
There are not many hotels in Haputale – it remains a wonderfully peaceful and escapist holiday destination. Our favourite hotel in Haputale is Thotalagala, an exquisite boutique property which was once the home of a tea planter that now offers guests the upmost in luxury and an insight into the history of Ceylon tea. Thotalagala achieved an accolade for excellence in the category of ‘Best Destination Hotel’ in the 2017 Conde Nast Johansens Awards.
A simple bungalow with hints of colonial charm which is a perfect base for couples or families seeking to trek off-the-beaten-track tea hills.
