Brief Garden, Bentota Reviews - Write a Review

  • What a wonderful place. I have been to this place many times and always loved it. It is very well maintained and new owners are very friendly as well. If you are visiting aluthgama, bentota or beruwala area, this is must visit tourist attraction. You will be able to experience how Mr.Bevis Bawa lived his life in this beautiful place.

  • Awesome place. We visited once there. Very calm and quite place. Awesome architecture and landscape done by Bewis Bawa.

  • This place is a unique presentation of Bevis's private life, defined clearly by his alternative sexual orientation. His preference of men and boys displays itself in dozens of paintings and other art pieces present in the house. Interesting.

  • It's only a garden and to be honest 1000 SLR is too much. The garden could be much more neat and tidier. In the house, time has just stood still and everything decays.

  • Lovely place to visit if you are a landscape enthusiast. Beautifully scaped gardens and Beavis Bawa's house is also interesting. Has a great orivate collection of old books, but they are not accessible to the public - you can see them on display. Several interesting species of birds can also be observed. Imperial Pegion, Woodpeckers, sun birds, Hanging parrot being a few. Pics to follow :)
