We arrived late in the day after the drive from Kandy.
The Planters house we stayed in was built in 1888 and the staff was fantastic. We shared the home with five other couples with our own butler and cook. The manager was always present to look after our needs. Breakfast was made to order with every kind of Western option and Local foods as well. Afternoon tea was great as well as the drinks in the reading room before dinner, so civilized. Dinner was fabulous as well with several options to choose from. The best thing about the stay was the views of the mountains and the tea plantation. So relaxing and being waited on four times a day. Really a relaxing stay, unfortunately we stayed on two nights, but would have stayed longer if we had planned our trip differently.
Overall fantastic experience and cannot say enough about the great service we received. Truly one of the best experiences if any vacation we have had in 35 years.
