Trip Summary

1 - 2

Once you’ve touched down in Sri Lanka, you will be collected by your personal chauffeur-guide and transferred to your hotel near the airport.

2 - 5

Journey into Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle for three days exploring the country’s ancient kingdoms. The climb to the top of Sigiriya Rock, crowned by the ruins of a 5th-century fortress palace, is unforgettable. Equally awe-inspiring is the ancient city of Anuradhapura and medieval citadel Polonnaruwa. Make sure to visit Dambulla Cave Temple to see the 2000-year-old frescos which influenced Bawa’s design. Your three nights here will be spent at Heritage Kandalama, a vast property built into the rock beside an evocative lake which Bawa envisioned as as austere jungle palace.

5 - 7

In Kandy, you will stay at The Kandy House. This converted ancestral manor reflects the foundations of Bawa’s designs such as the seamless blend of indoor-outdoor living. During your time in Kandy, Sri Lanka’s last royal capital, more cultural sites are on the menu. Take a guided tour of the sacred Buddhist Temple of the Tooth, and wander among an astonishing array of exotic plants in the 19th-century Royal Botanical Gardens.

7 - 9

Your journey now brings you to Lunuganga Estate, Geoffrey Bawa’s exquisite country house and gardens. Including immaculate landscaped lawns, flower-filled ponds, tree-lined paths and unique sculptures, the garden is a wonderland with secrets revealed around every corner. The house itself has been beautifully maintained to reflect the era when Bawa called this home, updated with his pictures on the walls. However, it has all of the modern conveniences that you would expect. From Lunuganga, you are just a short drive from Brief Gardens which were the creation of Geoffrey’s older brother – the horticulturalist Bevis Bawa.

9 - 12

Wind out of the countryside and to the coast for three days of pure peace and relaxation. Your abode is a breath-taking beach villa adorned in rich colors named The Last House because it was Geoffrey Bawa’s final creation. The Last House is set on a private beach just moments from the long tropical bay in Tangalle that is said to be Sri Lanka’s most romantic location. Nearby Hiriketiya and Mirissa offer the chance for whale watching and water-sports in season.

12 - 14

The final stop of this specialist tour is Colombo, Sri Lanka’s commercial capital. Colombo conceals many of Bawa’s creations, including the ethereal floating temple on Beira Lake. Here you can also go on a guided visit to his city home and his office which is undoubtedly one of his most beautiful designs. This office space has been converted into a first-class restaurant serving mouthwatering cuisine and an alluring atmosphere – a meal here is the perfect way to end your trip.
