“Really awesome place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

This is an excellent way to learn more about the herbs and spices on the Island. This traditional medicine is still widely used. The staff take you round the garden explaining how each plant or tree grows and what uses the herb or spice is put to. We were then invited to hear more about herbal medicine and ask questions. Perhaps because they were quiet a massage for shoulders, head and arms was thrown in. You can then buy the herbs and spices.really wsome place

“Excellent Place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

I was on my way from Sigiriya to Kandy and wanted to visit a Spice Garden in Matale. As usual I took help of Trip Advisor and Euphoria is the Place I selected.

We were very well greeted by Ms Ruwandi Pereria. She had explicit knowledge about herbs, plants etc and did explain us very well. The garden has plenty of spices and herbs and the explanation given to us was very satisfactory.

We were also given tea which was very nice and tasty with a perfect flavour. A must mention is the King Coconut that was served as I loved it during our trip to Lanka and drank it everyday.

They do provide lunch but only on reservations. However, we had no reservations still they did arrange for a lovely lunch and made a curry in their inhouse kitchen. The curry was the pick of the lot from all the varieties that we were served. Though arranged from outside it was a perfect meal to have ended with a lovely yogurt.

The place is excellent. They did have some products but we were not forced to buy.

Overall excellent.

“A service to Remember!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

Been a Sri Lankan and visiting one of our local spice and herbal gardens was an amazing experience for me with Euphoria., They had an excellent staff and customer service was amazing. We had a good lunch along with my other friends where we had cycled all the way as an adventure trip.
The garden was beautiful as a botanical garden, well maintained by the staff itself. The Director-est was very help full Miss. Ruwandi Perera.
For foreigners visiting our beautiful land Sri Lanka please don't hesitate to drop by on the way to Sigiriya or Dambulla because its a fantastic place to visit.

“A Great Experience And Lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013

My wife and I enjoyed our visit to this attraction, it was both informative and delicious! We started with a walk around the grounds, and learnt about the various plants, then had a demonstration of the products(the hair remover works, and the red oil for muscle/ligament pain, as they both were demonstrated on me!). We had a great lunch of sinalese food, and finished off buying a whole heap of products for home use! Highly recommended if you are into alternate medicine and beauty products! The lunch has to be prebooked. The only thing that's missing is a health spa, as that would put the icing on the cake!
