Arrived at Summerville, we were greeted by the gracious Sanat and escorted out to the veranda to enjoy high tea. I stepped outside and i swear my heart skipped a beat. I have never seen anything so beautiful. The setting is magical overlooking this unusual lake with little islands in the middle of it while all around are terraces of tea trees. The lake turns into an inlet to the right of the property. The rooms are huge and very comfortable. You get served whatever your heart desires. The chef consultes with you in the morning and all asked for appears on the table. In the hours in between you can hike the plantations, go around the lake, paddle a boat on the lake or take a bike and ride around. Best of all is to watch the sunset over the lake. Stay at least two nights- one is just a tiny taste of this bit of heaven.
