Deniyaya, Southern Province, i-Sri Lanka

The Forest Retreat is situated on the Beverley Tea Estate bordering the Sinharaja Forest Reserve ( ‘Lion Kingdom’) in Sri Lanka’s southern provinces. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and, due to its rich biodiversity, the country’s last viable area of primary tropical rainforest.

An area of outstanding natural beauty, the Reserve consists of untouched virgin forest, pure streams of spring water, and a thriving ecosystem of flora and fauna endemic to Sri Lanka, many of which are considered rare.

It is home to three elephants, 15 or so leopards and all 20 of the island’s endemic rainforest bird species, among other diverse wildlife. The lush vegetation includes several species of tea, coffee, spices, and ayurvedic plants and herbs, many of them used for medicinal purposes.

Given the highly sensitive and important nature of our location, we have a strong sense of responsibility as guardians of this land for preserving and caring for the environment and the communities who live here. While we are at the early stages of development, in line with this we are committed to becoming a 100% plastic-free and carbon neutral site.

To help offset our emissions and contribute to local and national conservation efforts, we operate a tree planting programme and will plant one tree for every guests that stays with us. We can also arrange for you to plant your own tree during your stay.

Our sustainable farming methods enrich the natural environment and engage and support the local community. We employ a number of families from the local Tamil community as tea pickers and farmers on the estate, and a proportion of the estate’s income is also invested directly into supporting the community through maintenance of housing and other important services.
