Situated amidst magnificent mountain ranges, luscious tea hills, and surrounded by salubrious climes, Araliya Green Hills is easily one of the best alternatives to 5 star hotels in Nuwara Eliya Sri Lanka! The property is located at the very heart of the city of Nuwara Eliya which is fondly known by the locals as little England. The city is regarded as such due to the climate which is very much similar to England’s – hence, the region was the preferred holiday retreat for British governors, planters, and nobles who couldn’t visit their homeland. Even today, the old Victorian buildings, monuments, and old golf clubs remind us of how the city would have been during the times of colonial rule.
Attractions – From spectacular cascades, scenic attractions, and ancient monuments, there is plenty to do and see in and around Nuwara Eliya!
Getting There – Nuwara Eliya is located approximately 174 kilometres away from Colombo and the city could be reached by bus, taxi, and even train. If you choose the train, bear in mind that Nuwara Eliya doesn’t have a railway station so you will have to take a bus from Nanu-Oya which is the closest town that has a train station.
The Weather – Owing to its elevation, Nuwara Eliya has a refreshingly cold and health-giving climate. It is misty during most times of the year and could receive occasional rains during the monsoons.
