Heritance Tea Factory


Where else in the world can you stay in a converted tea factory, pluck your own tea and take it home with you as a souvenir? At 2km above sea level, the views over our lush green organic plantations as the sun mingles with the mist are truly unforgettable. Enjoy them as you tuck into high tea on the terrace or a delicious tea-themed menu in the restaurant. Welcome to Heritance Tea Factory, where the kettle is always on.


Boasting some of the best Nuwara Eliya accommodation, Heritance Tea Factory has 54 comfortable rooms on four floors, converted from the former withering lofts (this is where the freshly plucked leaves were laid out on jute mats for some of the moisture to evaporate). The full-length windows that once helped to control the temperature for drying the leaves now ensure that the rooms are flooded with natural light, while providing spectacular views of the surrounding tea plantations. Wood is a key element of the rooms, with doors, shelves and cupboards (plenty of them) left in their natural colours. The free bottles of Hethersett Water come from the hotel’s own spring, pure and natural, and of course each room is supplied with our own tea leaves, as well as coffee and a fully stocked minibar. Furnishings are all made locally, from the prints showing local villagers bartering goods to custom-made toiletries. The fourth floor (executive floor) is entirely non-smoking. All rooms are accessible to wheelchairs, and we offer driver quarters if you have your own driver. We also provide free Wi-Fi in every room, as well as laundry service and 24-hour room service.

  • Superior Rooms - Enjoy splendid views of the Hethersett plantation or the Randenigala valley from the comfort of the armchairs in your room while sipping a cup of tea made from leaves grown in our own plantations.
  • Premium Rooms - Superior Rooms are larger and have a double aspect, providing even more spectacular views of the tea-covered hills and valleys. They also come with a DVD/CD player, and bathrobes and slippers. You can borrow DVDs from reception.
  • Executive Floor Deluxe - These rooms on the top executive floor offer unparalleled views over the hills and valleys. Your every need is catered for, with butler service from 6am to midnight and canapés and fresh strawberries and cream in your room. You also have the chance to pluck your own tea to take home as a treasured memory of your stay.
  • Junior Suite - This interconnected master bedroom and separate single bedroom on the executive floor provide breathtaking views over the plantations around the hotel. Both rooms have 32-inch flatscreen LCD TVs, and each has its own bathroom.


The provision of excellent contemporary facilities while maintaining simplicity, distinguishes us as one of the best hotels in Nuwara Eliya. Whether you want to work up a sweat on a bike or in the gym, wind down with a relaxing massage in the spa, or settle down with your laptop in the library, we have a comprehensive range of facilities to keep your body and mind occupied. We can also host small conferences (up to 15 people) and provide free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel as well as an internet corner with high-speed broadband connection. Additionally we provide all the everyday services you might need, such as currency exchange, postal service and taxis. Just ask our staff at the reception and we will be happy to help. Some facilities may not be available in bad weather. Use of all facilities is at your own risk
