Itineraries – Sri Lanka

Accommodation Review – Trevene Hotel, Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka

The hillside town of Nuwara Eliya is something a little special in Sri Lanka. Lakes and cool weather, a gateway to the area, a wonderful train ride there and further afield. And the Hotel Travene, where I stayed there back in late March, is also something special. The English have a long tradition of trying …
