Glenburn Tea Estate is a gorgeous luxury hotel on the grounds of a working tea plantation founded back in 1859, now owned by the Chaiwala family. The 8 spacious suites - split between 2 bungalows - are each individually decorated with grand antique beds, wonderful views and a chic country style, evocative of the natural surroundings. The area is rich in bird life and the attentive and friendly staff includes a bird expert who knows much about the flora and fauna of the region. Guests are encouraged to do as little or as much as they want in this tranquil hideaway, from relaxing with an in-room massage to hiking around the estate, river rafting and tea tasting.

Families are also welcome and there is plenty to explore on the estate. In addition, the Glenburn Lodge & Campsite located a few hours' hike from the hotel is a great place from which to explore the wilderness with experienced guides taking guests through forests, villages, hill stations and along rivers where they will find some stunning beaches. This 1600 acre private tea estate has its own forest, 2 rivers and 8 tea-picking villages, and is perfect for bird watching, fishing and long picnic walks. A nature-lovers paradise, this is a great retreat for couples, families or groups of friends - wander for miles and return to complete luxury at the end of a beautiful day.
