Brief Garden, Bentota Reviews

  • This place reflects the life style spent by Bevis Bava and his works bit. Garden is well organized and placed plants and other items in a way that mind let to spend in peacefully. Arts and crafts show full human body most of the time.

  • Truly amazing place commonly mistaken by work of Geoffrey Bawa instead done by his brother Bavis Bawa. Moving architecture and Gardening from the entrance itself. Out of box simple design language comprising both calming and emotional feelings. Some features are very bold yet some are amazingly subtle. Even western design features are embedded with Sri Lankan signature. The curators are helpful and willing to make you aware. Great place to spend a day with your family.

  • Beautiful grounds and residence. I wish we could stay at this house, as the setup is just classy and comfortable. The views to the gardens inspire tranquillity and the garden itself creates surprise at every corner.

  • Beautiful place with great architecture.. but its a bit sad to see the place is getting destroyed due to the poor maintenance. After the storm many trees have fallen off.

  • Enjoyed our visit to Brief Garden. Went early to enjoy it without many other people around.
