High on a tranquil hillside at the very heart of the tea country, the Dickoya Bungalow stands proud, an enchanting reminder of a colonial era. Boasting an illustrious past, it was built in the early 1900’s as a planter’s residence reigning over the slopes of Dickoya Estate. Now, a serene and relaxing haven, you too can experience its welcoming charms. Originally owned by the Scottish Ceylon Tea Company Ltd., Dickoya estate was one of the earliest plantations in the district. With mist embraced mountains, lush green valleys and sparkling, clear blue skies it was the upcountry paradise of choice.
The sprawling bungalow is furnished with indulgent comfort in mind. Four large bedrooms lavishly furnished in colonial style take you back to the luxuries of yesterday but with all the 21st century facilities you can ask for. There is a spacious dining room where meals are served, and a cosy living room to relax in. Surrounded by 4 acres of scenic grounds there is much to explore. Lush tea plantations and landscaped gardens invite you to take a stroll. Enjoy the best of the bright sun and the crisp air and find your ideal spot to lunch outdoors; or even a candle lit dinner at dusk with the songs of the tree frogs to serenade you.
The elegant charms of yesteryear are yours to enjoy in the 4 luxurious bedrooms with all the necessary amenities of today such as attached bathrooms with hot/cold bath and showers.
A cosy living room, a lounge with Cable TV and DVD player and a beautifully designed period style dining room completes the perfect picture of an authentic plantation bungalow.
Complete the colonial experience at your mealtimes too. The bungalow cooks are experts at preparing the most hearty, traditional fare to satisfy even the biggest of appetites.
Start the day with a good old fashioned English breakfast, take a picnic lunch out in the garden and round up the day with a true Sri Lankan dinner – the ‘up country’ way.
A BEAUTIFUL OLD COLONIAL RESIDENCE THAT WAS HOME TO PLANTERS IN THE DAYS OF BRITISH RULE, IT IS NOW A LUXURIOUS RETREAT WHO WISH TO RELIVE THE PAST ON AN AUTHENTIC JOURNEY TO DAYS GONE BY
