Visiting this most beautiful, charming and understated 'home' was a dream come true for me. It was such a privilege to be able to explore the magnificent gardens at leisure and to enjoy the lovely interiors of the house. Our dinner and breakfast were wonderful and the staff were so extremely hospitable. Even if you are not familiar with Bawa's work, I would still recommend this tranquil and beautiful spot. One note: Lunuganga is not signposted and locals had not heard of it, so be sure to have clear directions. Moreover, this is not a hotel with modcons and bling; it has been maintained as Bawa wanted it; a little 'cloakroom' at the entrance has a wooden door and bare cement surrounds for example. The staff can also arrange tours of Bevis Bawa's 'Brief' garden.
