SinhaGiri is a luxury 19th-century bungalow in Nuwara Eliya, a city in Sri Lanka’s famous tea county. It was a key hub of the British colonial era, and it has a distinctly British feel. It’s even referred to as “Little England.” British colonists profited from the local tea industry, and this was their retreat. Surrounded by verdant countryside, tea plantations and manicured lawns, it’s an idyllic setting.
The SinhaGiri bungalow has two suites. The decor is very chic and it has an air of late-Victorian decadence. You could imagine Oscar Wilde staying here. Combining Sri Lankan and colonial design, it’s full of charming antiques and artworks. SinhaGiri overlooks Gregory Lake and the racecourse.
