Castlereagh is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Boutique Hotels and our Top 10 Venues for a Wedding or Party

Castlereagh is one of the five bungalows which make up the Ceylon Tea Trails, Sri Lanka's first Relais & Chateaux resort. Travellers approaching Castlereagh from the road can glimpse tantalising 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.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
