Lunuganga was once the country home of the world renowned Sri Lankan architect, Geoffrey Bawa. Recognised for his unique ability to blend distinct buildings with their natural surroundings, Lunuganga was transformed into one of the most seductive, passionate pleasure gardens of the twentieth century and includes 9 bedrooms furnished delicately with antiques and art.
Geoffrey Bawa spent 40 years transforming this once abandoned rubber estate – a few miles inland from the island’s west coast beaches – into a tropical idyll, with elegant gardens, courtyards, lily ponds, walkways, romantic pavilions and inspirational views over Dedduwa lake and the surrounding jungle. Lunuganga is situated in Bentota and is midway between Colombo and Galle, and about 1.5 hours drive from both as well as the international airport.
The 9 bedrooms and suites are preserved as they existed during the lifetime of the architect and are decorated with a resplendent mixture of antique and modern furniture and traditional and contemporary art.
