After an exhilarating hike lunch at the charming Coffee Bungalow is a welcome stop. Built as a coffee planter’s home in 1860 and converted into a hotel in 1960, it has seven suites decorated in colonial style, many with antique furniture from the owners’ own collection. It is just 15 minutes’ walk from Kandy, Sri Lanka's second largest commercial city. From the hotel’s pretty terrace and pool I can see the city’s most famous sites, the Temple of the Tooth shrine and the scenic Bogambara Lake.
