Inspirational stays at Bawa’s iconic country house

Welcome to Lunuganga

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 15-acre Lunuganga gardens created over a period of 40 years. This soulful, authentic artist’s retreat sits near west-coast Bentota and features 10 rooms, a swimming pool and hosted garden tours.

Lush lakeside setting inland from 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 15-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.

Unique and inspiring accommodation

Our ten guestrooms occupy uniquely designed settings across Lunuganga and Ena House. Spaced apart on 15-acre grounds, each room is individually designed and equipped with modern amenities, they are restful private sanctuaries. The tranquil swimming pool at Lunuganga is located just beyond Cinnamon Hill, with its glistening waters, offering a serene oasis amidst its lush, tropical beauty.
