Hill Country » Hatton » Dick Oya Bungalow

Dick Oya Bungalow oozes nostalgia. It’s hard to stay here and not be captivated by the colonial character of this evocative plantation abode. Dating back to the nineteenth century, the bungalow has been recently refurbished and brought firmly up to date. Original antiques and cushy reproduction furnishings elegantly endow every room, and provide plenty of creature comforts, whilst timber floors, patterned rugs and soft carpets are a feature throughout. Housing four generously proportioned bedrooms (including a family suite with double and twin-bedded rooms), the bungalow is extremely spacious and yet cosy at the same time, and there are many lounging spots where guests can find their own peaceful escape. Topping a tea-flanked hillock at an elevation of 1,200m above sea level, the bungalow boasts a fantastic location near Dickoya town, in the heart of the island’s lush Hill Country. Numerous windows open widely onto panoramic views of the emerald tea fields, and in amongst this luminous green are colourful sari-clad women traversing the trails and plucking the neatly tended tea bushes. The bungalow’s four-acre garden is as well maintained as the tea estate and bursts with sun-loving blooms drawn to this fresh temperate climate. A selection of home-grown fruit trees and vegetables also flourishes here and the garden’s centrepiece is a verdant green lawn. This bungalow suits big groups and families who will adore its generous proportions. Facilities are fairly limited, however there is a separate TV Lounge with CD player and board games, and a volleyball net on the front lawn. The house is staffed by a small team, including an efficient manager who drops by daily, and a cook who is in charge of preparing all of your meals (fixed price set menus). From the bungalow you can wander the estate roads or take a trip to a nearby tea factory. With acres of countryside to explore, reservoirs and waterfalls to visit, scenery to ogle over and even the potential of scaling the sacred mountain of Adam’s Peak (an hour and a half’s drive away), lovers of the great outdoors, and anyone looking to escape into the island’s tea country, will find much to enjoy here.
