Truly inspiring. A must see for any budding architects. What a legacy to leave, we felt in awe at Geoffrey Bawa's vision. Magical, breathtaking, inspiring. Only criticism was that we were not allowed into his home.

We spent an excellent morning here. The estate is an oasis of calm and peace and appears to be frozen in time. Most recommended and an easy excursion from Bentota.
