Deep in Sri Lanka's lush countryside, the Tea Factory is indeed a converted tea factory, which has been perched atop this hillside since the 1930s. Nestled in organic plantations, guests are invited to pick their own tea - a perfect souvenir.
All the rooms have views over the surrounding landscape, and those from the top floor are particularly special - windows on three sides for a real panoramic sweep. A laid back place to get a taste of Sri Lanka's highest altitudes.
Leisure: spa, gym, tea picking
Rooms: 54 rooms & suites
Combine the island’s top wildlife crowd pleasers with some magnificent hidden gems and cultural highlights before spending some time on the beach.
