Dubai, United Arab Emirates (PressExposure) May 19, 2009 -- Ceylon Tea Trails has been featured in an article titled "Luxury on the edge" featuring countries that have developed posh hotels that appeal to intrepid bargain hunter's in the latest issue of Newsweek according to Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau's (SLTPB) Middle East Office.
Ceylon Tea Trails is the ideal place for those in search of a supremely comfortable, old English-style experience. The resort is nestled amid the dark green highlands of Bogawantalawa Valley. There, four estate-manager bungalows have been elegantly repurposed as a luxury retreat amid a sprawling (and still functioning) tea plantation. Each bungalow has its own building manager, butler, chef and houseboys.
"Sri Lanka is poised to enter an era of peace and is looking to attract tourists from around the world in the post-war era," said Heba Al Ghais Al Mansoori, Middle East Director of SLTPB.
She noted that the island nation offers the highest standards of comfort and luxury for leisure travellers. "Ceylon Tea Trails is one of the most idyllic retreats in Sri Lanka and one among many top quality hotels & resorts that offers top class facilities and the property has received several accolades in the recent past," Ms. Al Mansoori remarked.
Tea Trails now ranks as the resort that has received the most accolades among any resorts in Sri Lanka. Awards include Best all inclusive and best hidden gem 2009 on Trip Advisor, Best destination in the world to "pop the question to your partner", Wow Traveller Magazine; "Top 10 hotels in the world for tea lovers", Luxury Traveller Magazine, UK; "Top Five Colonial Holidays in the World" and "Five Best Tea Plantation Hotels in the World", both by The Independent newspaper UK; Hot List of best new hotels in the World for 2006, Conde Nast Traveller Magazine; "Top 10 Tours to Whet your Whistle", Belfast Telegraph and, "Winter Getaways - 20 Great Destinations", Travel + Leisure, Australia.
Sri Lanka offers diversity within easy reach in a small island.
