My stay at Secret Garden was perfect, the friendly staff (especially Mr Wicky, the security guard) and the owner Simona, make you feel like you've been invited into their home. The setting is tranquil, with an array of tropical flowers, trees and birds, to feast your senses upon. The villas/suites and bungalows, are quaint, clean and very romantic, with beautiful Antique furniture. The food is great, with everything from traditional Sri Lankan to great salads and pastas etc. Its a great location, with the Beach less than half a minutes walk away. My favorite aspect of secret garden was spending time in the meditation dome, playing and listening to music, as well as doing a few yoga and massage sessions with the local practitioner. Great place overall, can't wait to visit there again... My friends and I loved every minute of our stay there.
