    We visited this extraordinary and lush garden with plenty of spices to the incredible benefits. The tour ends with an explanation of the products on sale in the shop but mainly by a demonstration along with massages for each Member of the family: a treat. The shop is quite expensive, it is probably possible to find cheaper elsewhere but this moment was so delicious that we have obviously fallen for oils, creams, spices with great pleasure. We recommend the experience for the young and the old

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.
