The wikiliya estate

Right from the entrance, the pleasant aroma of tea wafts around the area; the fragrance is soothingly delicious to the senses, and irrefutably beckoning. Inside the factory, tea manufacturing is not a job, it is a lifestyle.

The Wikiliya factory is located on the top of a hill, bordering mid grown and low grown elevations, and is snugly situated between the dry and wet zones, which makes it continuously susceptible to variable weather conditions. It is so unique, that the natural breeze blows from both the UVA and Bogawantalawa hills across the area, giving Wikiliya tea its full bodied flavour and characteristic. Just a stone's throw away from the factory, and preserving all of its old world charm, the Wikiliya bungalow stands in all its warmth, a welcome sight to visitors.
From the hill on which the bungalow stands, the vast rubber plantation rolls down, occasionally lit up by a bright red Flame tree, or an Ehela tree bearing cascading yellow bunches of flowers. The black embellished crisp white walls, complimented by the red polished floors, and the kitschy veranda furniture akin to gnarled tree roots are just the beginning; the interior is complete with a cosy fireplace, white panelled ceiling and large plush bedrooms.
