Secret Garden

 

Check into one of the best secret gardens of Asia, Lunuganga. Enjoy an out of this world experience in this architectural marvel which is still preserved in its original condition. On the next day, visit Brief Garden which was created by Geoffrey’s brother – Bevis Bawa.

 

Brief Garden

A barely controlled riot of a Jungle Book garden, the grounds are a lovely place to get lost, while the house, which used to be the home of Bevis Bawa, brother of renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa, has an eclectic range of artwork on display – from homoerotic sculpture to a wonderful mural of Sri Lankan life in the style of Marc Chagall. The mural was created by Australian artist Donald Friend, who originally came for six days but stayed six years – definitely not the sort of house guest you want! Other, more short-term, guests included Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier, who stayed here during the filming of Elephant Walk in 1953.
