Cocoon Hills

A drive of 180 km from Colombo brings you to the city of Nuwara Eliya meaning “City of Light” in the central highlands of Sri Lanka with a picturesque landscape of breathtaking views of valleys, meadows, mountains and waterfalls with a temperate climate. It is located at an altitude of 1,868 m (6,128 ft) above sea level.

The city was founded by Samuel Baker, the discoverer of Lake Albert and the explorer of the Nile in 1846 and was also then known as “Little England”.

Cocoon Hills is an exquisite 6 bed roomed English Mock Tudor Bungalow with a beautiful lawn and flower beds built nearly 25 years ago, nestled in the hill country amidst tea plantations and verdant mountains which exudes its personal charm within a setting of refined elegance.

On a sunny day, the Bungalow allows guests to borrow its bicycles to peddle around the town, sightseeing.

On a rainy day, the warm and cozy living rooms in both the Bungalow and the Annex are the perfect place to snuggle under a blanket near the fire place with a mug of hot chocolate.

Or you may choose to stay indoors to play a game of chess, carrom, darts, and cards or borrow a DVD or a Book from our Library.

Cocoon Hills offers accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis.
