Situated in Sri Lanka’s spectacular hill country, Haputale is perfectly situated for hiking in the mystically beautiful Horton Plains national park, dipping your toes into Bambarakanda, the island’s tallest waterfall and one of many in the area, and offering a fascinating insight into the island’s tea planter history. More charming than its rival Ella, Haputale offers an authentic overview of the country’s mountainous region. Simply, Haputale is a place where time stands still and nature takes over. A leisurely stroll through the countryside and breathing in that crisp fresh air is all it takes for holiday feeling to truly set in.

Home to some of Sri Lanka’s most lavish establishments, Haputale is the place to splurge. Choose from one of its splendid renovated tea planter’s bungalows and experience going back in time. Enjoy high tea on the lawn, a nightcap in the drawing room by a roaring fire and tour the surrounding tea plantations. It may not have the same tropical climate as its coastal counterparts but Haputale and the Hill Country offer a wonderful cultural experience and insight into Sri Lanka’s fascinating history.

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.

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
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
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
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim.
