Beautiful garden setting with the Bawa house situated in the perfect spot to sit back and take in the sights of the lush greenery of nature. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Our meals were excellent. One of us was vegetarian so they arranged special menus we could all enjoy.

Their meals beat any other meal we had...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bawa House 87 was built in the late 1960’s when Geoffrey Bawa designed this house for his friend Lydia Duchini Gunasekara, a former professor of sculpture at Milan University who made beautiful sculptures and used the shophouse as her showroom. In 1994, the current owner purchased the property and assembled more land making a total of seventeen acres. Mr. Bawa was immediately engaged to restore the property to its former glory and it was at this time that he designed the artist’s bar, the ruined chapel, and the lake and marshland beyond. ... more   less
