    A truly wonderful hotel! This hotel features one of the best views I have ever come across, rolling hills and greenery- very close to the famous Nine Arches Bridge. We also had a cooking class at the sister 9 Acres Hotel- which I would 100% recommend. Staff are brilliant- the only minor comment would be that the restaurant is somewhat overstaffed, this has been commented on previously. I would 100% return to the Secret on our next Sri Lanka trip.
