Kitulgala

Overview


 

Breathtaking views, organic flavours and giant brightly coloured butterflies are the best kept secrets at Paradise Farm.  Set within the dense woodland of the low country, Kithulgala is a pretty village combining tea and Kithul plantations with the rapid River Kelani in the valley below.  The colours change with the seasons a sea of orange mango turns to a horizon of red rambutan.

 

Set up by the Worldview International Foundation in 1998, as an organic farm project designed to offer local employment and improve the quality of  life and surroundings for village workers.

 

Shrouded by misty mountains, the only sounds are those of birdsong, the resident frogs and the occasional wild dog.  Workers attend to the rubber sap and tea picking, stopping only at weekends with their families.

 

The villa has opened up to guests wishing to rejuvenate in these tranquil surroundings or relish in the wildlife.  Walk around the estate or laze about on the luxurious terrace and natural spring-fed infinity pool.
