The silver lining, however, is the exquisitely authentic colonial décor of the dining room. With antiquated cuisines to match, the glory days of the past will feel like brand new. DINING Feasts from the past. Savour the culinary wonders of good old plantation cooking. The colonial residences of yesteryear were famed for their devoted cooks. The ‘Appu’ as they were called, were unpretentious master chefs. In keeping with that tradition, the food at Mandira Bungalows is also lovingly prepared by our very own ‘Appu’.

So whether it’s a colonial style English breakfast, a blazing BBQ at dusk or some truly authentic Sri Lankan meals, your taste buds will be in for a royal treat. With the cold mountain air to whet your appetite, meal times are indeed worth waiting for. However, for the diet conscious, or for those with particular nutritional requirements, they can be catered to as well. Literally ‘home grown’, the fresh fruits and vegetables are sourced from nearby farmss and often from the bungalow garden too. Plantation life was primarily all about simple pleasures – good, home cooked food was one of them. Culinary traditions are still strictly observed and meals prepared the old fashioned way. However, the ceremonial and traditional High Tea on the lawn cannot be missed – with plantation fresh tea, of course.


ACTIVITIES Though an air of peace and calm may reign over the mountains, there are plenty of activities nearby to keep one busy, the ‘up country’ is as rich and varied as the tea it is famed for. The unique sights and sounds of colourful festivals, ancient places of historical interest, and a wealth of traditions from diverse cultures are a must to experience first-hand. Many colonial landmarks also abound – the historic Darawala club and the beautiful Warleigh church, for instance. The nearby towns and villages, temples and shrines off er a novel cultural experience too.

And if exploring isn’t one’s cup of tea, a serene Yoga session or an in-room spa therapy treatment serve as perfect options for some quality “me time”. 1. MOUNTAIN BIKING Guest can try out some awesome rides off the beaten track with amazing scenery for company. 2. TREKKING For the experienced hiker or for those interested in a quiet walk exploring the nearby vistas, there are some perfect trails to satisfy both extremes. 3.
