Tea Factory Hotel

The 'Tea Factory Hotel', set on the lush slopes of Kandapola, was formerly a tea factory that was built by British Planters in the 1930s. The factory has  now been painstakingly converted into a hotel that provides the unique experience of residing at a genuine tea factory. One of the five factory hotels in the world, this unusual hotel has won the UNESCO Heritage Award for its innovative approach to conservation.

The hotel's reception was once the old  tea factory's dryer room and the restaurant & bar  were once the sifting and packing rooms. The conveyor belts in the lobby and the 'factory' like elevators all add to the charm of the property. An old railway carriage that once plied the beautiful slopes has been restored  to serve as the hotel's fine dining restaurant.

The 57 rooms at the hotel are all elegantly furnished with period furniture and open out to beautiful views of the tea estate, a village and the surrounding mountains.

Guests can go out and explore the tea plantation, watch colourful tea pickers at work  or pluck tea of their choice and process it at the hotel's miniature tea factory.
