Perched amongst tea bushes amidst the Concordia Estate, high up on a hill near Nuwara Eliya, Goatfell is a luxurious, recently renovated four-bedroom tea bungalow hotel. This former estate manager’s bungalow still resonates with the warmth and up country charm of a bygone era. With gourmet food and Butler service, guests can relax on covered verandas, in the warmth of the log fired sitting rooms or enjoy tea field views of the swimming pool.
Goatfell is furnished with a mix of hand-sourced antique and custom-designed contemporary pieces, bedrooms have plush beds, sitting areas, private garden and estate-view terraces and en-suite bathrooms with bathtubs for warm relaxing soaks. Bedrooms are equipped with heaters, rugs, blankets and hot water bottles for the cooler Kandapola nights.
The kitchen at Goatfell promises locally sourced, freshly cooked food, served to you in an upcountry tea bungalow atmosphere. The butlers make you feel at home by mixing your favourite drinks, serving afternoon tea in the garden and gourmet meals in our cosy indoor dining room or outside on the veranda.
Rates are all inclusive, so expect to tuck into a hearty breakfast followed by a ‘Planter’s Lunch’ – a selection of daily curries – before moving onto afternoon tea and later, an a la carte dinner. Snacks and drinks, including your favourite tipples, best-enjoyed beside the warm crackling fireplace of our comfortable sitting room, are also included in the daily rate.
