We’ve just returned from a stunning wedding in Sri Lanka, so we wanted to share with you some of the beautiful locations where the wedding was held. Feast your eyes on these images of some beautiful boutique hotels in Bentota and Galle in Sri Lanka.
Bawa House 87:
Located in Bentota, Bawa House 87 is run as a home with cute bungalows next to a secluded lake. With 17 acres to play with, Geoffrey Bawa, Sri Lanka’s world-renowned architect brings you a peaceful place to stay.
The Villa Bentota is a unique and private beach side hotel. Offering 15 individually designed Rooms and Suites with all modern amenities and services, The Villa Bentota is housed in the Mohotti Walauwa which was converted into Sri Lanka’s first boutique hotel in the 1970s and set on 2 acres of land.
Staying in one of the world’s most magical garden retreats is surely a must on any Sri Lankan itinerary, especially one that was lovingly created over several decades by the ‘father of Asian architecture’, the late Geoffrey Bawa. The beautiful 15 acre estate of Lunuganga, near Bentota, was fashioned by Bawa into a place of extraordinary beauty next to the Deduwa Lake. Featuring rolling lawns, terraces and pavilions set out like a series of spacious outdoor rooms, whose position has been carefully chosen to exploit the fabulous vistas over the lake, tropical jungle and paddy fields.
Located in Galle (pronounced as Goll), Amangalla is beautiful (as are all the Amans in the world mind you!). Overflowing with colonial landmarks, in the heart of a 17th century Dutch fort, rests a peaceful, and immaculately restored historic hotel Amangalla. Galle Fort, recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, houses the most charming and characteristic buildings in the ancient trading port of Galle.
As you can see these hotels are breathtaking, but do bear in mind, in Sri Lanka the roads are long, arduous and traffic heavy so you’ll need patience!
