The Diyanillakelle Estate Bungalow harkens back to a bygone era, when British colonial influence could be seen across the island. The bungalow displays an architectural style reminiscent of the holiday homes of the Brits and Scots of the period. Restored to perfection, the bungalow closely melds both local and foreing influence in its many external features.
On the inside, the layout, the high ceilings, and some of the fittings are British-inspired; however, the art on display as well as some of the hand-picked pieces of furniture amply display the island’s rich heritage. The interior of the bungalow tastefully combines both influences.
There is something about the cool climate in Nuwara Eliya. The cooler air seems to increase your appetite! Our local chef, in his extensive À la carte menu, masterfully handles both local and international cuisine. Whether as a main course meal, or a snack in between, he prepares and serves food that suits each palate.
The unique topography and climate prevalent in Lindula and the extended area of Nuwara Eliya, provide the ideal conditions to cultivate some of the best-loved tea varieties worldwide. The mild yet sweet characteristic of the tea from Diyanillakelle Estate has led to its reputation as a premium-quality brand of Ceylon Tea.
The area is home to an unparalleled range of flora and fauna, some of which are endemic to the region. From rare butterfly and bird species native to the area surrounding the Knuckles range, to indigenous plant varieties and exotic flowers, the bungalow and the estate offer a cross-section of the island’s natural diversity.
