Kahanda Kanda, Galle, Sri Lanka

You will be able to wander round the lush green, cool gardens of this working tea plantation; discovering for yourself the art that goes into creating the perfect cuppa. You’ll be treated to some of the finest local speciality dishes. You’ll be able to luxuriate in a service that is perfectly balanced between being attentive and invisible. And you’ll be able to step outside your haven and easily access the fascinating local culture and historic sites - like a 15th century Portuguese fort - of Galle and its surroundings.
