Castlereagh is one of the four bungalows which make up the Ceylon Tea Trails, Sri Lanka's first Relais & Chateaux resort. Travellers approaching Castlereagh from the road can glimpse tantalizing views across the lake of this symbol of the glory days of colonial life. Situated in a wooded dell close to the water, this century old bungalow offers unrivalled water views and superb garden suites to suit every taste. Elegant parquet floors and open fireplaces in the dining and drawing rooms evokes recollections of the life and times of the tea planters who once lived here. Summerhouses can be found in the extensive grounds where tea and a good book can be savoured until the sun goes down over the water. Then, before you know it, it's time for pre-dinner drinks on the terrace.
