We showed up with out a booking, and were offered the one remaining room, a higher priced one, for the lower bungalow price (we couldn't believe our luck!)
The room was clean and very well appointed with lovely shared outdoor areas.
The genuine happiness of the staff shone through in the way in which they went about their work - professionally yet incredibly friendly in manner.
The manager/owner(?) was also very warm and welcoming and left a great impression on us.
Overall a lovely experience and great value for money.
Can't wait to return!

- 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.
