Known as Ceylon until 1972, Sri Lanka means "resplendent land" in Sanskrit - resplendent as in gorgeous, magnificent. Dilmah Tea formed Resplendent Ceylon to create and manage a collection of small, luxury resorts offering a unique "trail" across Sri Lanka. They offer the upscale traveller a range of experiences linked to Sri Lanka's history & culture. Tea Trails was our maiden venture; Cape Weligama will be our second. Four more unique resorts are under development.
