Inspirational, whimsical and enchanting, Lunuganga country estate offers a precious window into the mind of its famous creator, the architect Geoffrey Bawa. Sleep here and experience Bawa’s vision at your leisure, pausing to admire carefully considered architectural flourishes, leaf-framed lake vistas and vast, serendipitous 12-acre Lunuganga gardens created over a period of 40 years. This soulful, authentic artist’s retreat sits near west coast Bentota.

Lunuganga country estate sits on the banks of Dedduwa Lake, a 10-minute drive from the laid-back beach resort of Bentota in Sri Lanka. Hidden within a 12-acre garden, the setting is serene and totally private. The airport is a 90-minute drive away though sea planes land on Bentota’s lagoon.
Our nine guestrooms, many occupying uniquely designed buildings, scatter the 12-acre grounds. Individually designed and equipped with modern amenities, they are restful private sanctuaries.
