One of the nicest spice gardens i've been to! They have a huge selection of natural products to fix all of your problems. The amount of product in each pack/bottle you buy, is also very generous.

Excellent visit. The tour guide was clever helpful and very funny. 100% NO hard sell. They have a shop to buy spice ...but it's up to you if you want to buy anything. Highly recommended . thanks

It was interesting to visit this garden with my kids and having the chance to see everything growing in its natural state. Monira, one of the garden employees guided us in the garden and showed us the different spices trees that grow in sri lanka in a very nice manner.

Lovely to see everything growing in its natural state, the smells of Sandalwood, Jasmine etc are really great and you can buy products in the shop which is a little on the pricey side but there is no obligation to buy.

Though the garden is not very big, the manager is very enterprising and took us through the various spices grown within the small garden in a very nice manner. They have a small boutique shop wherein you can buy the herbs/ spices. If you are in the area and don't have much to do, visit this place... Ps . You... More

Its like privately owned Spice Garden. From the onset your guide will start pitching for buying their products. Take a tour since it is well built and maintained but products are exorbitantly priced.

Actually surprised me how interesting the tour was. It was also fairly quick and covering a large amount of information, then you can get a free massage and see some products. Admittedly it is overpriced. The best bargains are for the large packets of spices rather than buying creams and ointments. 50p for a large pack of hot chilli is... More
