“A secret garden off the beach of Bentota”
Reviewed 5 January 2010

Tucked away from the other hotels that line up on Bentota Beach, this is a true gem. The service was extremely attentive and the food AMAZING ! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and loved the aesthetics of the place and how it was lit up at night.
You feel as if you have the place to yourself (as there are only four rooms).It is more like you are staying at a private residence. (which it actually was) The rooms were simple and clean but it was the attention to detail that added charm and luxury to the place. The rooms were presented extremely well. The Bawa House itself is a beautiful piece of architecture with a very interesting decor/interior, with the property facing onto a grass lawn that stretches out, ideal for a lazy afternoon stroll. The property also has a narrow plunge pool which is perfect to cool down although the beach is only 5 minutes away. The place has a very serene and calming effect. Strongly recommended if you want a private space to yourself.

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
