Lunuganga, Bentota

4.0
Admire the engineering work of art by renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa, who converted the abandoned cinnamon plantation at Lunuganga into a luxury compound. The estate lies secluded in the Sri Lankan wilderness, where gardens decorate the Deduwa lakeside and outdoor rooms offer peace and quiet. Explore the remarkable courtyards, walkways, lily ponds, and pavilions, all set within an exotic jungle. Spend some time at the gallery room to inspect a lovely collection of art and antiques. You can also go on boat trips or sign up for a bird-watching tour amid palms and banyans. Put Lunuganga on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Bentota journey planner.
