Surrounded by mist swathed mountains in the centre of Sri
Lanka, sits the hill capital Nuwara Eliya. Hotels and guest
houses from the rustic to the grandiose dot the slopes and hide
in lush green plantations. Tucked away, down its own little
lane, close to the heart of town yet away from the bustle is the
quaint old mansion of Jetwing St. Andrew’s.
Built around an old Tudor country house which served as a
grand colonial residence during the days of British rule, here,
you take a step back a hundred years and more to another era of
old world charm and tradition, where customs of yore are still
maintained to the letter. Full English breakfasts to enjoy, high
tea on the lawn to linger over with the finest of plantation
best freshly poured; with log fires lit, and stiff brandies
poured to warm the chill of the night. Where the comforts of
yesteryear cleverly conceal every must have amenity of today
allowing you to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Leisurely surveys of green tea plantations, a round of golf
on a world famous course, a little fishing on the lake – all the
pastimes of the past await you on holiday with a difference. If
a journey back in time is what you seek, our doors at Jetwing
St. Andrew’s in Nuwara Eliya are always open to welcome you
warmly back to the past.

hills at 6,182 feet (1’884 meters) above sea level Jetwing St.
