At the end of or 10 days in Sri Lanka, we wanted to unwind with a couple of days at a tea plantation. Had read about Tea Trails in a magazine but they were both a bit out of our price range and booked. Through our excellent tour operator (Rainbow Tours), we were introduced to Rosyth and cannot overstate how...

Just checked out after an amazing couple of days. Only downside is that we should have stayed longer. Next time we will! We cannot speak highly enough of our experience at Rosyth. We were so lucky to have stayed in the Plantation suite which was by far our most comfortable room of our vacation so far. Great views and our...

Perched high up in the rainforests with fabulous views, this was probably the best place we stayed during our 2 week holiday touring Sri Lanka.

My husband, elderly mother and I arrived at a ludicrously early hour following an overnight flight from Dubai. We very quickly found ourselves cocooned in a lush green paradise, with attentive and friendly attention from the owners, Neil and Farzana (who were there to welcome us on arrival) together with their supportive team. Nothing was too much trouble - unfortunately...

What a great place this is. Situated right next to an 'old school' tea factory and surrounded by fabulous hills and rich terrain. We stayed in 'Tea' and 'Pepper' which effectively meant we had a beautiful house to ourselves for the length of our stay. Great pool, good masseur, fabulous food and monkeys galore. The staff were attentive, friendly and...

We were in Rosyth last week with our 3 children. It was wonderful. The service is perfect. Nothing was too much to ask. The food was great: traditional rice and curry but a little less spicy. We had a cooking class and the chef thought us how to prepare a curry. Great experience. The manager guided us through the tea...
