Highgrove Estate is a restored luxurious, English bungalow that belonged to a planter in the 19th century. Nestled atop the edge of a ridge with sweeping views across the verdant tea plantations on the hillside of Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka. Different from other parts of the island, Nuwara Eliya is a cool and collected destination with nothing but rolling hills of green, misty mountains, and water frontage for miles ahead.
The estate itself is an elegant and quintessential property with a hip roof and hexagonal gazebo at front. With three, opulent bedrooms and fireplaces throughout the house, the bungalow is ideal for a memorable holiday with the people you love.
Highgrove Estate is home to three grand bedrooms – the Master King suite, the Queen suite and Garden suite. The bedrooms are as resplendent indoors as they are because of their outdoors. Furnished with comfortable beds with white linen along with antique work desks, bed tables, and fitted with fireplaces, the bedrooms are fit for royalty. The classic interiors are reminiscent of a colonial English home with views of the Sri Lankan mountainside. You can enjoy luscious views of tea plantations, the grandiose Kondagala Rock, and the reservoir. The bedrooms come with ensuite bathrooms with proper amenities.
With sights such as the high mountains shrouded in thick clouds, the majestic Kotmale reservoir framed by lush tea estates, and infinite views for as far as the eyes can see, you will truly wish to spend all your time outdoors. The gardens have been setup with a beautiful, colonial-style breakfast table for a hearty compilation of continental treats, fresh coffee and juice. Enjoy long, leisurely walks along the hills, breathe in the fresh mountain air, and spend some time amidst pure, unadulterated nature.
Highgrove Estate is a tea estate bungalow which lends it its unique, picturesque charm. Surrounded by abundant nature, the bungalow is utterly beautiful and wonderful with its antique interiors and hand-crafted wooden furniture that is hard to find. There is a crackling fireplace in the magnificent living area with a protector so kids can play without a worry. The plush, white sofas and armchairs are soft as clouds. From the vintage bookcase to the wooden cabinet, each element plays a part in bringing the room together. The windows and glass doors add the allure of a natural painting to the room.
The sophisticated décor is just the icing on the cake as these natural surroundings also deliver fresh produce for your breakfast, bed-tea, and other meals. Relish a scrumptious candle-lit feast on the mahogany table. From home-cooked meals to fresh strawberries that you can snack on, everything is straight from the garden. The staff is happy to serve a delicious Sri Lankan spread so you can try out local flavours prepared by experts.
The team at Highgrove Estate is highly-trained and will welcome you with warm smiles. The upkeep of the bungalow is looked after by the staff so that guests can relax and unwind without a worry. You can even choose a delicious meal from the menu and request the staff in advance.
Nuwara Eliya is famous for its stables, tea estates, and the revered 18-hole golf course in the centre of town. You can use this opportunity to visit the tea estate and take a Tailored Tea Billy Walk or even indulge in exhilarating nature hikes. The world is your platter at this majestic, surreal destination somewhere in the hills.

We can’t thank Kanchana, Benjamin and all the staff and friends of the Bungalow enough for everything that they have done for us, in making our Wedding day so special! The meals… OUTSTANDING!!! Highgrove Estate will always be a special place for us. xx
I’m writing this in the front garden enjoying amazing views and a lovely mood this early morning. Really love this breathtaking place. Welcomed with friendly hospitality Kanchana was the perfect host throughout our stay and a very clever chef. We enjoyed his cooking a lot and now we are off to enjoy our final breakfast. All the staff here are very nice and helpful and the views from this house are truly stunning! Live living up in the clouds! Love Agnes.
