Our History

Sri Lanka has over 2500 years of rich history. The Kandyan Kindom was the last monarchy of Sri Lanka [15-19th century.] British colonial rule started in 1818 and lasted until Sri Lanka gained her independence in 1948.

One of Sri Lanka's main sources of foreign exchange is tea. The climate in our central highlands complements the growth of tea and the famous, high quality, Ceylon tea is produced throughout the year. In 1824, the first tea plant was brought to Sri Lanka from China and was planted in The Royal Botanical gardens in Kandy. Later in 1867, the first commercial tea plant was planted in Loolcondera estate, by James Taylor, a British planter. Loolcondera tea estate, a key contributor to Sri Lankan Economy, is less than an hour away from Bellwood Hills Resort & Spa.
