Overview
A regal manor that had hosed many a British aristocrat and an international tea school until restored by the Nature Resorts, Tea Nest is a haven for secluded tranquility and peace.

Revolving around the concept of tea, there are 6 rooms namely lemon, green, silver tips, golden tips, chamomile, jasmine: all are names of different teas. There is a large sitting room with a cozy fire place in each room  which provides a quiet escape to read or may be play a board game. The mansion is surrounded by tea gardens on all four sides offering views of a tropical forest from one side. 

Ideal for for a thoroughly rejuvenating, private holiday with indulgent comfort.
