James Taylor

There would be no Ceylon Tea without James Taylor. Credited with introducing tea plantation to British Ceylon, Taylor was instrumental in beginning, and thereafter ensuring the success, of what continues to be the nations’ foremost export commodity.


Say it with flowers

This beautifully appointed room is brimming with charming touches, the centre of which is a fascinating floral tribute to the best blooms of Sri Lanka and the British isles.


The light fantastic

The suite combines warm shades of white and yellow, to create a space that is both refreshing and relaxing. Festooned with blooms, blossoms and birds, it is indeed a miniature Eden.
