We rang a bell at a large gate and waited to be let in. It was the beginning of what was to be an amazing experience. Our accommodation was The Glass Room, The Guest Room Suite and The Gate House. All three were absolutely delightful and housed antiques and treasures. We appreciated the little extras like torches, cool boxes for...

Don't discount this National Trust historic ruins site as a place to eat, sleep and enjoy the beauty of the lakes and rolling grasslands. It is really worth the U$D 230 we spent to sleep in the studio packed with eclectic contemporary art; including sculptures, paintings and architectural wonder. The fee included dinner and breakfast; making it VERY affordable in...

We have just stayed 2 nights at Lunuganga and it was among our favorite in Sri Lanka despite we stayed also in Bentota in another lovely Bawa property this one is very unique. It should not be considered as a hotel but as a secret to enjoy for those travelers looking for a a short or longer retreat and those...

Ever heard of Geoffrey Bawa ? Famous Sri Lankan architect who died 10 years ago, and was one of the most wellknow architect in Asia. Wether you do or not, don't miss Lunuganga. This place has a soul, which is miraculously alive thanks to two formers students of Geoffrey Bawa, Michael and Asha. Both are architects, both are knowledgeable about...

Lovely place, felt like being transferred back to Britain with a tropical twist. Lovely and informative guide. Amazing staff. Hotel rooms looked lovely, sadly no children policy so we could not stay. You can book yourself for lunch before visiting. Booking is essential as it will be cooked just for you. Don't miss if interested in design and architecture.

The country home of G Bawa - with the jungle trying its best to reclaim and the conservators to repel with dignity - the home and gardens are being preserved as best they can be. While the employees would like to make you welcome it appears they aren't entirely sure how to achieve same. For Australians the various paintings and...

Make this a 'must do' on your itinerary! Superlatives are inadequate to describe this place. This is the famed Geoffrey Bawa's secuded estate where he spent most of his life, the architecture is stunning. There are few straight lines in the gardens where everything works harmoniously with the surroundings. The gardens flow around the buildings which are inconspicuously blended in...

We came just for several hours from Bentota to see Geoffrey Bawa's secluded estate. The garden and all the houses are very well maintained and look beautiful. The owners provide all the guests with guided tour, which includes not only the information about Geoffrey Bawa and his works but also many interesting comments on the surroundings and nature, which is...

really far away from the city, rainy and cool weather, we travel a long time to the hidden heaven, like travelling back to the old times, the shelf, the telescope, the manor and the serious host, really a architecture!

Our second visit, this time with Architect's friends from Thailand. Whereas the first time visit was on a hot and sunny day, this time we visited in on and off pouring rain. The garden, the house and the bungalow rooms which we toured with the experienced guide offered a complete different impression. Ideal for black and white photography, this mood...
