  • The only reason for visiting: view how sophisticated con-artists themselves react to your money in to pick up. Small garden with every plant, tree, they have a wonderful story and their bio products work against any ailment: from obesity to skin diseases to cancer! Drinks are offered but have to be paid later. Massages the same. There is no escape. After the shop in, where a pile of pitiful and often dilapidated placebo products staring with insanely high price tags. But they do their con-job well. Waste of time and money.

  • Our driver decided he would stop of at this spice garden on our way to the next hotel. This was an interesting experience, a wide variety of spices on display and different plants native to Sri Lanka....  more »
  • Guided tour with a crap story. Factory is not there. Short free massage where they have to choose. Some products are even onveratwoord medically because they can't help but do damage. In addition, all irresponsible expensive. In shops the products for a quarter of the price.

  • Avoid this place. Sorry to say it but these guys just want to take your money. Everything is very-very expensive. If you ask them to tell you the price before you buy they won't say a word because they want to trick you. I am honestly telling you, AVOID THEM, and don't even go close to them. They will try to full you with massage and other stuff. Avoid them !
  • This is a highlight in Sri Lanka which many foreigners love to visit. They may get a chance to see and learn about wealth of trees and plants with endless number of benefits to the mankind.
  • Friendly staff, their goal is to sell ayurveda things to you. You can receive tea and massage for free (pay if you like). But prices for ayurveda things are high.
  • Knowledgeable guide , but eager for sales . Extortionate prices for three small items . Save your money and have a good meal out
  • nothing to see, but herbal and spicy look good

Where to stay in Matale

You'll find some fairly standard guesthouses and small hotels in Matale's main urban area, never straying very far from the station and the parks of the city center. Alternatively, explore out of town to the north, east, or south for a host of other more characterful accommodations that show off the fruits of the area, including campgrounds, ecolodges, and farmstays. For a much greater choice of places to stay, look in Kandy, one hour to the south.
