Governor’s Chalet Nuwara Eliya****

The Governor’s Chalet in Nuwara Eliya overlooks the picturesque Lake Gregory which is a testament to British engineering during the Colonial period. The land on which the Governor’s Chalets now stand was previously Lake Gregory’s old boat house premises. It was taken over and completely refurbished. The three wooden chalets are solidly built with gabled roofs and wooden floors. The rooms are comfortably furnished and equipped with all modern conveniences. Each separate unit can accommodate up to four guests and is ideal for a family.

Location

Located 180km away from Colombo, in the cool climes of Nuwara Eliya, Governor’s Chalets are found overlooking Lake Gregory. The property is only a mere two minute drive away from the city centre of Nuwara Eliya. Heading towards Nuwara Eliya from Colombo or Kandy, the drive takes you through winding mountains covered with green carpeted tea estates and glimpses of beautiful waterfalls plunging towards the valleys between.

Facilities

Hidden amidst a grove of pine trees, Governor’s Chalets are a bunch of eco-friendly wooden chalets built completely out of different kinds of wood with a unique Scandinavian flavour. The atmosphere at the quaint little restaurant found at the property is quite overwhelming.
All ingredients and produce used at the restaurant are bought directly from the neighboring farms. The restaurant offers you a range of French bread and cuisine transporting you back to little French Bistro. Having great knowledge in Fusion Cooking, the head chef and his team have excelled in adding a Sri Lankan touch to this already scrumptious feast of food and wine with unique flavours. Airport transfers can be arranged.
