  • Very beautiful
  • This place is a con. After an interesting, but a too sales pitchy, your of the garden they give you a massage with one of their products. While I was taken to a separate area and given a female masseuse, the guy who did the tour walked in twice. I don't think he would do that to non-Europeans. That felt very uncomfortable and arrogant. Also, the spices focus on the alleged medicinal aspects, nothing about cooking (which is what I was hoping to hear). Then the sales pitch. No prices anywhere. Bit 'menu', of miracle products that we had to order before we were even taken to the shop and shown prices. The prices were outrageously high. We knew such places were always going to be expensive and overpriced, but not by that much. Yet they work your psychology to make you feel that after the tour and the massage (500lkr tip x2 btw) you really should buy something. And the disappointing look on their face when you 'only' want one bottle of the 9000 lkr 'miracle cream'. In the end, we bought three products for 16,000lkr. No actual ingredients written on the labels, no certifications. But at the time we felt uncomfortable to spend more time checking the packages and thinking about, they really rushed around the shop putting things in your basket. We paid less for a night at a 5* hotel, incl dinner. But at least I now know how to spot the next scam. To every tourist out there, if your driver recommends this place, politely decline. (Sadly they are approved by the Sri Lankan tourism authority).
