    Stay in Geoffrey Bawa’s Hotels

    Geoffrey Bawa is Sri Lanka's most prolific and influential architect whose work has had a tremendous impact throughout Asia and is unanimously acclaimed by connoisseurs of architecture worldwide.
    Amongst his range of buildings, both domestic and municipal, he designed a number of hotels and houses that have been converted into hotels throughout Sri Lanka. With Expressions Holidays we can arrange for you to visit and stay at these hotels (and visit Bawa's other buildings too) on their own or as part of a tailor-made touring holiday. Most of our tours of Sri Lanka with chauffeur-guide allow for stays in Bawa's hotels but we can also tailor-make a particular tour for you, just with a focus on his properties.  Here is our suggested itinerary for A Tour Around the Work of Geoffrey Bawa.

    GEOFFREY BAWA'S HOTELS ON THE SOUTH-WEST COAST OF SRI LANKA
    Lunuganga, Bentota (inland)
    Lunuganga offers a rare opportunity to stay on the country estate of Geoffrey Bawa. Created in 1947, Lunuganga launched Bawa’s career and became his lifetime architectural experiment. It is now open to the public to stay in one of the bedrooms or just visit the gardens. Lunuganga should be seen as a living art gallery and study in design rather than having the facilities of a hotel.
    7 nights from £1430 per person including flights, private transfers and breakfast

    Club Villa, Bentota
    Just metres from the beach, the unpretentious Club Villa was redesigned by Bawa in 1980. This 19th century Dutch colonial villa blends traditional design with post-modern touches. Dutch colonial furniture and flashes of rich jewel colours decorate the simple, yet spacious rooms. Club Villa encourages its guests to relax and treat it like home.
    7 nights from £1470 per person including flights, private transfers and breakfast

    Paradise Road - The Villa Bentota, Bentota
    Just yards from stunning South Bentota Beach and next door to Club Villa, the Villa Bentota is a restored 1880s Dutch ancestral home, converted by Bawa into Sri Lanka’s first boutique hotel and retaining many of his signature designs. Elegant courtyards join airy living spaces and individually designed bedrooms and suites.
    7 nights from £1470 per person including flights, private transfers and breakfast

    Heritance Ahungalla, Ahungalla
    At the entrance of this hotel, your eyes are drawn across tranquil water pools and gracious columns to the Indian Ocean. This luxury resort hotel was designed by Geoffrey Bawa and its most stunning feature is the aquamarine infinity pool which appears to drop right into the ocean.
    7 nights from £1670 per person including flights, private transfers and breakfast

    GEOFFREY BAWA'S HOTELS ON THE SOUTH COAST OF SRI LANKA
    Jetwing Lighthouse, Galle

    Jetwing Lighthouse is an architectural triumph of Geoffrey Bawa with its minimalist and elegant designs which are dramatic and entirely captivating. A magnificent spiral staircase rises around the rotunda of the building in brass and copper, recalling ancient local history. For unique décor and extra space upgrade to one of three themed Suites, revealing Bawa’s take on Arabic, Chinese or Dutch style.
    7 nights from £1455 per person including flights, private transfers and breakfast

    The Last House, Tangalle
    The Last House is a quaint and colourful beachside hotel which oozes charm. This was the last residential property to be designed by Bawa, and can now be rented exclusively for 14 guests or as individual guestrooms. At the property's heart is an interior garden with outdoor pool, while under cover yet still in the open air is a single dining table where guests can enjoy communal dinners.
    7 nights from £1365 per person including flights, private transfers and breakfast

    GEOFFREY BAWA'S HOTELS IN SRI LANKA'S CULTURAL TRIANGLE
    Heritance Kandalama, near Dambulla
    A masterpiece of modern resort luxury, this award-winning eco resort blends seamlessly into the natural environment. The hotel is built between two rocks and appears to be a natural extension of the mountainside. Vegetation grows along the walls, bats swoop in and out of open corridors and monkeys play on the branches outside your balcony. This hotel is perfectly located for exploring the Cultural Triangle and includes a wonderful spa and plenty of activities.
    7 nights from £1650 per person including flights, private transfers and breakfast
