We stayed here for two nights for a break during our Sri Lanka trip. The village was packed with tourists because of the cricket match but Secret Garden remained calm and quiet.
We stayed in bungalow nr. 2 which is pretty small and dark but you do not spend a lot of time in there. The shower and toilet are outside. They provide mosquito nets above the beds. Breakfast was good wi great coffee and fresh juices. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
The beach is footsteps away and plenty of restaurants to eat in the area. We had a relaxing stay and spend some time on the nice beach. There is no ATM in the village so take plenty of cash with you. And try the restaurant opposite of the SG called the Villa. Very nice food and service.
