The Last House,

Tangalle

Price From : US $ 232.00

Introduction

The Last House, so-called because it was Geoffrey Bawa’s architectural swansong, is positioned on an idyllic strip of land with a lagoon on one side and the turquoise seas on the other. The beach is fabulously long and offers safe swimming for much of the year. As one would expect from Sri Lanka’s most respected architect, a man that mixed Sri Lanka’s rich cultural past with a clean modernity, the villa is very special. It is shaped like a horse-shoe, with kitchen, living rooms and courtyard bedrooms surrounding an idyllic swimming pool on three sides. The advantage of this design is that the various verandas, dining and sitting rooms are simultaneously well-suited to social occasions and can also offer much privacy. At the back of the main building there is a lovingly-tended garden with an expansive stretch of lawn leading down to the beach. The Last House can be booked per room or in its entirety and can accommodate up to 14 guests.

Accommodation

There are six bedrooms that can be booked individually or in combination as suites. The rooms are named after Geoffrey Bawa’s favourite trees and are comfortably furnished with king-sized or twin beds.

Cinnamon Hill Suite: This suite combines three bedrooms - one large double bedroom with a spacious ensuite bathroom, a twin bedroom and an adjoining smaller single room – these two bedrooms share a bathroom. It is situated on the upper floor and has a balcony overlooking the pool and the sea beyond.

Moonamal: This suite opens out to the gardens and the sea beyond. Consists of a spacious bedroom with ensuite bathroom, outdoor shower area and private garden.

Atteriya and Na: These two bedrooms also have sea views and a private garden.
