Four distinct tourism brands in Sri Lanka announced that they have amalgamated business interests in tourism, and launched under the new brand name ‘The Haritha Collection’.
Within The Haritha Collection is the flagship Horathapola Coconut Estate, a 50-acre organic coconut plantation surrounding a stylishly refurbished plantation bungalow, Kudakalliya Bungalows, located seaside in Arugam Bay, and the Dutch heritage beach bungalow in Matara known as 3 Sisters in Sri Lanka. Internationally renowned wildlife documentary logistics provider and pioneer luxury tented safari operator Kulu Safaris adds its exciting safari options to the umbrella of The Haritha Collection.
Sri Lankan businessman Javana Fernando oversees management of each of the properties, as proprietor and managing director of the operating companies, combining his family interests with examples of his own vision for Sri Lanka tourism.
Fernando released the following media statement: “Our properties are unique, with their own signature of life in Sri Lanka. They have one common thread: our commitment to responsible, low impact tourism. We offer our guests discerning, private and very special destination experiences, from bespoke safaris, to relaxing beach culture, to the quiet restfulness of being surrounded by nature as far as the eye can see. We have always strived to harmonise our living concepts with the integrity of our natural surroundings. We give our guests every opportunity to experience sustainable initiatives and environmentally considerate accommodation options; that maximise luxury while mindful of its footprint on Sri Lanka. Amalgamating our corporate vision within one Brand makes sense, and we do so with the catchphrase ‘Tread Lightly,’ because a conscientious approach to tourism is fundamental to our brand identity.”
