One of the attractions located in Bentota is the Brief Garden. The Brief Garden is the name given to an estate, which is, undoubtedly, the most famous garden in Bentota. The Brief Garden is a marvel of landscaping, and its timeless beauty has inspired its visitors ever since it was opened to the public. Thus, if you are a lover of landscaping architecture, the Brief Garden is an attraction that you simply must not miss out on. Its popularity is such that Beach hotels in Sri Lanka in the Bentota area, including the luxury Citrus Waskaduwa, include excursions to the Brief Gardens in the activities they offer their patrons.
The Brief Garden was designed by Bevis Bawa, the brother of legendary architect and landscapist Geoffrey Bawa. The Brief Garden was originally a rubber estate that was acquired by Bevis Bawa, who, thereafter, took it upon himself to transform the estate into a landscaping masterpiece. The garden combines nature, with ponds and sculpture which results in a rather wonderfully designed and blissful garden. The serene garden and beautiful lawns which are accompanied by intricately carved stone ponds and a variety of stone and clay sculptures including traditional moonstones. The garden also includes a typical Japanese water garden which is an ideal place to spend some time in reflecting upon one’s self. You will also find the bungalow of Bevis Bawa himself at the garden, which is known for its unique architecture and collection of antiques and ornate Dutch furniture.
