Nissansala Maskeli Oya Family Park

2 votes   Vote     
Situated in the south-west of Nuwara Eliya district, Norton Bridge is still one of the few unchanged hill country trading posts, mostly untouched by changes elsewhere in the country. Located at an altitude of 3500 feet above sea level, blessed with lush forest cover, the Norton Bridge forest reservation is home to some of the country's rarest fauna and flora. Situated on the main route to Adam's Peak, it is rumoured that famous visitors such as Ibn Batuta, the famous Arab sea-farer and Macro Polo passed through Norton Bridge when visiting the Mountain of the Sacred Foot-Print.

The Concept

In keeping with the Family Park concept of preserving nature while complementing the best of it, Maskeli Oya Family Park is set in a typical hill country surrounding. The four hectares of land has been well preserved with a portion of the land being cultivated with tea and the balance preserved as a natural forest. The natural springs at the top end of the land flow through a water garden into a pool and then to a small private lake and into the bordering Oya.

The Atmosphere

"Nisansala" or silence as its earlier European owner called it, was re-modeled to give guests a taste of what it was like to live in typical conditions when the British planter was "Raj" of Sri Lanka 's Hill country. Built with the extravagance of a wood fireplace, hot spa, out swimming pool, lake and vegetable garden, the main building is surrounded with a lush tea garden.

The buildings are all of rock which is a material in abundance and consist of seven double-rooms and a 'Honeymooners' suite. The common area consists of a community hot water spa, dining-room and a large sitting area with a traditional wood fire.

Visitors will be treated to fusion foods from the era of the British Raj. The main meals will consist of European dishes with authentic recipes from the plantation era, South Indian cuisine popularized by the large estate labour force-first brought in to tend the tea gardens and typical hill country Sri Lankan, fare popular among the upcountry peasantry.
