Bawa House 87.

Posted by Kishani Gunewardene on December 21 th, 2009 in Accommodation, Culture & Heritage

Just before the Christmas rush I was able to escape for a day to visit some new properties in the Bentota area last week. One of these was the wonderful Bawa House 87 where I spent an utterly peaceful morning.  Enter through the large white gates and an instant sense of serenity takes over as your eyes gaze down the green lawns leading to a lake.  Set on 17 acres of jungle gardens, lakes, and marshland, this inspiring setting was created by Geoffrey Bawa in the 1960’s for artist Lydia Gunasekera.  The property is now opened for guests and has two tastefully designed bungalows – The Pavilion with two double rooms and The Shop House which has two single rooms.  Similar to Bawa’s Lunuganga situated close by, the gardens at Bawa House 87 are a work of art in itself with meandering  pathways, gigantic Bird’s Nest ferns, 100 year old Banyan and Tamarind trees and plenty of exotic birds hovering on the tree tops.   This is an oasis of calm and tranquility.

    I simply deriesd to appreciate you all over again. I’m not certain the things that I would have undertaken in the absence of the entire methods revealed by you concerning that question. It was the frightening dilemma in my view, however , understanding the very specialised strategy you solved that took me to weep for happiness. I’m just happier for the help and expect you recognize what an amazing job you are always accomplishing educating many others all through a site. Probably you have never encountered any of us.

  2. It’s always a relief when someone with obvious expertise answers. Thanks!

  3. c’est possible, et vous avez le droit de revendiquer une vie autonome qui n’appartient qu’à vous ! Mais dans ce cas, pourquoi faire payer d’autres pour cela ?

  4. Ihan vaan postscriptumiisi TuomoEn millään löytänyt mistään keskustelusta, joihin Lauri on osallistunut kommenttia, jossa hän syyttäisi ketään trollaajaksi. Voisitko kopsata ko. vastauksen tähän, etteivät syytöksesi jää pelkäksi räyhäkkääksi mustamaalaamiseksi. Toiseksi, edelleenkään "diippi dissi" ei viitannut sinuun vaan alkupään kommentteihin. Kirjoittaja olen minä, ei Lauri. Pahoittelen nimimerkittömyyttäni, mutta käyttämäni HTC pakottaa minut jostakin syystä pysymään anonyyminä.T. Jaba
