It was Bevis Bawa, brother of architect Geoffrey Bawa, who converted this former rubber plantation into a wonderful series of landscaped gardens.

Through clever planting and screening, you are led through a series of tableaux and views, nooks and bowers. Statues and artwork are dotted throughout, as well as in the minimalist house. Many are Bawa’s own work, while the Australian artist Donald Friend is also well represented.
