Gallery Studio Suite

This, our largest bedroom, is located at a distance of around 50 metres from the Main House, beyond the Eastern Terrace, and is one of the most compelling places to stay in Bentota. It was originally built as a cowshed in the 1970s but was later transformed into a gallery for Bawa to house his precious art collection.

Transom windows capture Bawa’s iconic play of light and shade throughout the day, and just outside the entrance is a private courtyard with weathered ochre walls and gothic flourishes.

At the very centre of the Gallery Studio Suite sits a four-poster king-sized bed dressed in crisp linen, which gazes beyond a glass wall into the generous courtyard. In the granite-floored bathroom are a traditional freestanding Victorian tub and separate rain shower.

This room feels private and secluded, and is a popular option for couples and honeymooners.
