Nothing to dislike. Lovely walk around the gardens and food / refreshments at the cafe were enjoyable in beautiful, relaxing surroundings.

“If you love plants it's great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

If you love plants it's great, even if you don't love plants it's good
Lots of species, close to nature, places to click fantastic pics, orchid house, cactus house and all
lake was a disappointment
All in all we liked the place before ayurvedic massage
be prepared to walk a lot if you wanna visit
around 2.5 to 3 hours

“Best Garden in Srilanka”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

If you are in Srilanka, then please dont miss to visit this garden.
The garden is very well maintained and clean. There is a very small hanging bridge on a river. Lots of fun and host of beautiful photographers..For Non Srilankans entry fees is LKR 1100 though for locals is only LKR 50. Must visit if you love preserved form of nature.

“Worth the money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

Entry ticket is indeed expensive (1100 rs for adult, 850 rs for student) but you can easily stroll/people watch/discover the botanical garden for hours! The coffee bar just outside the park serves excellent coffee (compared to the usually bad coffee served in guesthouses). This visit was worth the money.
