Personal Spa

We offer a highly personalized set of Spa Treatments in the privacy of your own room. Apart from birdsong, there’s a stillness, a quietness in the background allowing you to relax completely as our masseuse eases away the tension in your shoulders or pampers you with a blissful manicure and pedicure. These restorative practices will create a true sense of zen in your mind and body.

Recreation

“Recreation and diversion are as necessary to our well-being
as the more serious pursuits in life.”

Pool

Our infinity pool, sunken into a white-stone terrace, overlooks a panoramic vista of breathtaking mountains and valleys in the distance. Its turquoise waters glistening iridescently in the Hanthana sunshine will beckon you to swim. Or perhaps you can just laze by the pool on our comfy deckchairs in the shade of an umbrella and stare into the dreamy distance of the faraway hills.

Tennis

Like at W15 Hanthana, most estate bungalows have their own tennis court for tea planters to enjoy some exercise in the evenings after a day of work out in the fields and at the tea factory. Our courts are ideal for a spot of tennis followed by a ‘cuppa’ in the manner of the British tea planters and later the Ceylonese planters too. We provide both tennis rackets and balls. Please ask your butler for our tennis paraphernalia if ever you feel like playing a game.

Nature

Gardens

The gardens of tea plantation bungalows were always a sight to behold – and W15 Hanthana is no exception. Stroll through immaculately manicured lawns and perfectly placed rows of rainbow-hued flowers on towards the herb, spice and vegetable gardens. The trees are helpfully labelled with both botanical and English names to learn as you walk. While away the hours in these extensive gardens and let the refreshing breeze sweep over you while you sit, pray, meditate. Truly restorative and soul-healing.

Telescope

Stare into space. Literally. Our sophisticated telescope can be used to gaze out into the heavens. Being away from city lights means this is the ideal place to view a celestial extravaganza. You can also observe the famously beautiful mountain ranges of Hunnasgiriya, Knuckles and Matale through the telescope and follow the dip into the Dumbara Valley. Whether you gaze towards the stars or the earth, either one promises a sight to behold and inspire.

Music

“Life seems to go on with no effort when I am filled with music.”

Piano

Sitting quietly in the corner of one our comfortable sitting areas, our beautiful mahogany piano waits to be played by our guests. Brush up those musical skills on our baby grand and let the tinkle of its notes drift over the country air. It will not only soothe your soul but the ones of others around you. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said that “Music is the universal language of mankind.” And so it is at our elegant country home. Guests bond over familiar tunes and new rhythms as music becomes a shared interest; a point of warm conversation over nightcaps in the lounge.

Nature Sounds

The chirp of birds in the early morning hours of sunshine. The rustle of leaves in the ancient trees outside, as they sway gently in the refreshing wind. The mewing ‘keeyew’ of a Brahminy Kite. The hum of dragonflies buzzing near a glistening pond. As dusk falls like a silvery curtain over the emerald hills, the haunting hoot of the Brown Wood Owl. And in the silky dark of night, that perfect sound of silence. Nature’s own sounds are healing in itself. Listen out for them as you wander through the bungalow and into the garden, even from your room window or terrace. Let Nature’s tunes be soothing music to your ears.

Reading

“The Internet is the world’s largest library. It’s just that all the books are on the floor.”

Library

W15 boasts a beautiful library, packed with a feast of books in a variety of genres. In our library, a warm glow of ambient light, by way of a beautiful burnished brass chandelier, spills over onto comfy cushioned chairs creating an enticing atmosphere for reading. Choose an absorbing novel or thumb through our collection of fascinating coffee table books. Curl up in one of our sofas with a book in one hand, a mug of hot chocolate (or a night cap if you prefer) in the other - and you will be happily lost in a literary world of your choosing.

Outdoor Games

Croquet, a favourite British pastime from the 1850s, can be played on our exquisitely groomed lawn. Recognized as a game of skill requiring strategy like “chess on grass,” this outdoor game can be enjoyed in the Sri Lankan sunshine. Similarly, you can opt to enjoy a game of boules, or lawn bowling, if that is preferred. Reminiscent of an English summertime frolic, we can arrange for Pimms on ice to make your garden game time just that more enjoyable. And, if you fancy, a picnic to follow? All you have to do is ask.

Indoor Games

An assortment of games including a Chess Board are available for our guests who wish to spend an evening enjoying a board game over a cup of golden Ceylon tea or a glass of merlot, combining enjoyment with exercising of the mind. Scrabble, Monopoly, Backgammon and Carrom are also available. Ask your butler for instructions on how to play Carrom, a South Asian favourite played on a wooden board.
