The Secret Garden


Enjoy a tour to an enchanting estate hidden amidst the lush greenery of the hill capital of Kandy. The property reeks of old-world charms. A little different to standard garden visits in Kandy, there is a chance that you will encounter some forest animals.

Why you will love it

·        Walk through a tropical estate surrounding a secluded hilltop retreat.
·        Hear stories of the property's past and sit down to a typical planter's lunch.
·        Discover macaque monkeys, porcupines, barking deer and many fruits and spice trees.

What you will experience

Experience a magical setting, embedded with style and sophistication perched amongst shady trees in the ancient royal capital of Kandy. The Secret Garden is a familial house built in the mid-19th century and has been converted into a hilltop retreat. The enchanting estate is situated atop a quiet hill.

Enjoy the 45-acre estate as your host takes you around the property. Soak in the striking foothill views, and if you are lucky, you can even spot some wild animals like wild boar, macaque monkeys, barking deer and porcupines. Pass through cinnamon, vanilla, pepper, rubber and spice plantations and your host fills you up on the stories from the past about the estate. And last but not the least, dig into the delicious planter’s lunch from an open wood fire with your host, his partner and perhaps a Gin and Tonic.
