When heading down to the lush tropical island, Sri Lanka, visitors will usually envision a holiday spent enjoying the serene beaches while basking in the sun, with relaxing days in just flip flops and swimwear. However, there is much more to this diverse country, which provides for any type of vacation. For those who enjoy their vacations with a touch of elegance and sophistication a great place to head to, is the island’s central highlands where the weather is cooler and the cities show signs of the country’s colonial past. The most popular of these exquisite cities is Nuwara Eliya with a host of interesting activities for visitors to be a part of.
A site in this city that visitors must head over to is the Nuwara Eliya Golf Club, a prestigious Sri Lankan landmark that has been home to an excellent golf course for more than 100 years. The stylish club was built by the British during their rule, originally reserved for the British officials residing in the country. Visitors to the club will take a step back in time into this interesting era, as the club house shows off most of its original design, including a log fire. The perfectly manicured lawns are delightful to see and the view from the club house is astounding, offering a view of all 18 holes.
The elegant club house is a great place to relax in Sri Lanka with its classic ambiance, but for golf enthusiasts the course will be an exciting challenge. Occasionally the club hosts events which genuine golf lovers can enjoy watching. For visitors who want a game on the beautiful course, the club offers rental clubs and helpful caddies for reasonable prices. Though the club is truly British in appearance, the friendly faces and local surroundings give it a pleasant Sri Lankan vibe. It is an ideal place to unwind, amidst the beautiful settings and good company. When in the city visitors can also spend time in the many well kept parks boasting lush greenery, or visit charming traditional tea factories.
For a one of a kind experience among Sri Lanka hotels guests should select accommodation at Heritance Tea Factory. The converted tea factory is a favourite among Nuwara Eliya hotels for its stunning views, and the tea themed experience it offers its guests.
