Bawa’s Lunuganga Gardens – Bentota

Experience Overview

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: This morning you will be introduced to the life and times of the late Geoffrey Bawa, one of Sri Lanka’s most renowned architects. Your guide for the day will be a staff member of Lunuganga who will guide you through the beautiful tropical modernist countryside home of Bawa.

EXPERIENCE DESCRIPTION: Geoffrey Bawa is Sri Lanka’s most prolific and influential architect. His work has had a tremendous impact upon architecture throughout Asia and is unanimously acclaimed by connoisseurs of architecture worldwide. Every turn and every bend in Bawa’s country home is an interesting experience – with so many exotic plants and trees and views to take in throughout the distinct homes and garden. The house itself is sparse but beautiful, full of impressive paintings and photographs of a bygone age. You have the option of sitting down to have some tea and biscuits.

Includes: Bottled water, refreshments, entrance tickets, a host and a vehicle.
Duration: 1.5 hours including lunch (lunch consists of rice and curry)
Difficulty: Easy
Suitable for children: Small children may not follow the explanations, and the experience is designed for those with a keen interest in Bawa and architecture. That said they may enjoy the walk around the garden.
Timings: 9:30am, 11:30am, 2:00pm and 3:30pm including lunch, 12:30pm – 2:30pm
What to wear or bring along: Cool, light clothing. We’d recommend wearing a pair of trainers as some sections of the lawn tend to be muddy. You might also like to bring an umbrella along in case it rains or to protect yourself from the sun.
In to Know: Lunuganga is a functioning commercial hotel and therefore, all outside visitors are expected to respect the personal spaces and privacy of in-house guests. Some guests have regretted not being able to enter the hotel as such and take pictures inside the house.
Private or not? This experience is always private
