NARATALE ESTATE

A GREEN OASIS IN THE
HEART OF SRI LANKA

CONTACT

Located in the village of Amitirigala, Naratale Estate is beautifully set amongst coconut and rubber plantations. For many generations, the land in the hilly Kegalle District between Colombo and Kandy has been in the hands of the Amitirigala family. King Sri Kirthi Rajasinghe, one of the last kings of Ceylon, gifted the village and its surroundings to Biappu Edirisinghe in the year 1761 in appreciation of his bravery. The family was thereafter called Edirisinghe Mudiyanselage Amitirigala.


In 2005, Rita and Rangie Amitirigala took over the plantation and transformed it into a Sri Lankan-Swiss family enterprise. Ever since, Naratale Estate has developed into a living agricultural and social oasis.


Naratale Estate promotes traditional farming methods, runs a rainforest reforestation project, supports social infrastructures such as schools or hospitals, and creates employment for the local community.
