Room & Suite (5)
Secret Garden is an oasis within the lively coastal village of Unawatuna, just 20m walking distance from the beach. It boasts a 19th century Dutch-Sri Lankan Colonial Villa with bungalows and suites and a 4000sqm tropical garden. In the middle of the garden rests a large dome, offering 2 daily yoga classes, an on call Ayurvedic therapist for massage and wellness therapy as well as free space for dance, meditation and music. Our staff is courteous and warm. A large tropical breakfast is available daily at all times, and our two chefs are lovingly prepared to cook a great eastern or western meal for you on pre-order. Secret Garden provides relaxation and serenity alongside the opportunity to dive into the blue ocean of one of the country's most popular bays, experience the myth of the Rumassala Mountain and dance away at Unawatuna's many beach bars. May all be Welcome!

This place is a real gem. The garden is beautiful, such an oasis tucked away from the rest of Unawatuna. There are so many different lovely areas to relax and chill in the garden and also an impressive yoga and meditation dome. The main house is also gorgeous and so tastefully

Set not far off from the busier street, this truly is a secret garden. Clean, quiet, and just 200m from the beach, it's the best deal in town. Mohan treated us like family, and sat and had great talks with us in the evening, while we indulged in a few beers of our own, which

"O melhor é não escolher o Hotel! Quanto mais um quarto."
"We stayed in one of the larger rooms, however, smaller rooms were also very comfortable & spacious."
"Each room is unique in style so Simona is best at suggesting which room would be appropriate"
"this guest house is over a 100 years old, rooms have colonial touch, it is the garden where you should spend most of your time!"
"all the rooms are good, depending on how many people want to stay together one can choose from bigger vs smaller rooms"
