There are five  suites at the Lunuganga Estate. The Suites are preserved in, as close to the way they existed in the lifetime of the architect and full of an eclectic mixture of original antique, sometimes modern furniture and contemporary and traditional artworks.

The public rooms include a sitting room and the Garden Room. In addition there are several garden pavilions for relaxation which include the Roman Pavilion and the Blue Pavilion. Although Lunuganga does not have a swimming pool, the beautiful beache of Bentota is  just a short drive away that offers numerous water sports and safe swimming.  In addition the Trust also operates the Guest Suite at the Number 11 House , which is available for bed and breakfast accommodation in Colombo.

The Gallery Room is by far the largest suite on the estate. A bed is placed in the middle of what was otherwise a gallery housing a part of the Geoffrey Bawa Collection.

 

 

The Gatehouse Suite

The Gatehouse Suite overlooks the northern part of the Cinnamon Hill and was once used to house architectural assistants that Bawa brought along if he needed to work during a weekend in the 1960's.

A dressing room and bathroom overlooks the Water Garden, as does the lower gallery, which acts as a sitting room.

The bedhead batik which is an original from the period was done by Ena de Silva based on a drawing by Laki Senanayake.

Waking up (if one dares!) with all the curtains open looking into the trees of the entry court and the Red Terrace is in itself a magical experience. A small toilet also opening into the trees is almost like a bird watchers hide.

Its proportions come entirely from the recycled building elements that make it up. The large sliding doors, the 18th C windows and a front of a shop house with its panels replaced with glass and the panels themselves used as a baluster for the upper level deck. All the other structural wood is also recycled. The large single plank worktable was the only real place to spread out a drawing in the whole of the garden.
