Dear sir or madam Please note that we DO NOT SELL hair removing cream at New ranweli spice garden. If you check our recent reviews by our past clients you will notice that ours is a small spice garden in kandy. Please be kind enough to check the details again. We believe you have visited some other spice garden. Thank you

Dear sir or Madam can you remember the name and the address of the spice garden you visited. Our spice garden is located in close proximity to the royal botanical garden. and also we have only one guide working for our spice garden. please can you check the pictures posted on our trip advisor page and see if you see the person who showed you around. the person with the red top and an ash colour is the only guide working in the spice garden and if you didnt see him you have visited some other spice garden. please be kind enough to check the details again and clear the confusion. P:S there are a lot of spice gardens in kandy and most of them are not listed on tripadvisor.
