The “FIRS” is a little jewel that sits pretty aloft its little hillock overlooking Lake Gregory in the most scenic location in Nuwara Eliya, the loftiest region in Sri Lankan Hill country. A Luxury Boutique Bungalow which was originally built well over a century ago by Philip Freudenberg Ceylon’s 1st International Counsel General for Germany was later acquired and became the holiday home of D. S. Senenayake, Sri Lanka’s first Prime Minister.
Full of charm, sparklingly new and packed with every luxury you need for a relaxing holiday in Nuwara Eliya, ‘The Firs’ luxury boutique hotel, scheduled to be opened by mid May this year, will be an ideal stay for those who are looking for an exclusive experience rather than merely a traditional holiday.
‘The Firs’ is considered to be a true Sri Lankan up market ‘Heritage Boutique Bungalow’ that beckons historical value, and has been conceptualized according to the British Colonial era with the intention of providing the same experience during the British Monarchy. Today, after undergoing continuous upgrades, The Firs now follows the very same concept, ensuring that every aspect of the property is about luxury, and is designed to reflect the unique spirit and soul of its location, providing guests a one-of-a-kind luxury experience.
Luxury soft furnishings and styling, as well as top-line amenities – including world-class personalized unique butler services for every room, spa and fitness facilities, game rooms, coffee and cigar lounges and dining rooms and uniquely – a wine cellar, make this holiday accommodation on the edge of the hills absolutely irresistible. At the end of an adventurous day, you can sit with a glass of wine enjoying the sunset at the upper level ‘attic bar’, or perhaps settle for a continental style exquisite dining experience – made to your individual preference.
What’s more, as you are within half an hour of some of the prettiest sights and historical towns in the hill area, you are truly spoilt for choice – The Firs offers many excursions and tours which cover the natural beauty of Nuwara Eliya – including adventurous hikes to the World’s End or a casual play at the Famous Victoria Golf Club – which would all color the stay even better.
The Firs, like its Kandy flagship – ‘Randholee Luxury Resort’, is managed by Freudenberg Shipping Agencies Ltd. and is designed to reflect the unique spirit and soul of its location, providing guests a one-of-a-kind luxury experience.
