The Last House

The Last House (Boutique Hotels)

The Last House, so called because it was Geoffrey Bawa's architectural swansong, is positioned on an idyllic strip of land - lagoon on one side, beach on the other - on the outskirts of Tangalle. It has long been one of best villas in the south coast and also operates as a small boutique hotel. Few villas have a better beach.

Heritance Kandalama

Heritance Kandalama (Luxury Hotels)

Heritance Kandalama is a minimalist contemporary hotel cleverly designed by Geoffrey Bawa, Sri Lanka’s famous architecture guru. Bawa conceived this famous Sri Lankan hotel as 'an austere jungle palace’ located on the bund of an ancient 3rd century reservoir and captures the surrounding magical views from every angle

Galle Fort Hotel

Galle Fort Hotel (Boutique Hotels)

Galle Fort Hotel evokes a subtle sense of colonial grandeur. Enter through the unassuming doors, and a dramatic interior unfolds – verandahs and courtmetres, columns and arches, carefully restored to its original grandeur. Interiors are elegantly furnished with a minimalist style, blending old and new.
