Landmark Tourist Spot
The Geoffrey Bawa residence is considered a special architectural marvel which also houses art and artifacts from the collection of the Late Archt. Geoffrey Bawa. Whist the Geoffrey Bawa Trust endeavors to encourage stays for those enthusiasts of Architecture and the Art, it is important to note that this residence is not run as a regular hotel.

The two rooms available are within a suite on the 1st floor. They are attached and come with one common bathroom and a sitting room. The 3rd floor is a loggia and the 4th is an open viewing deck. The rooms are given only to a single party at any one time.

  • We went because it was relatively close to the hotel, shortly before leaving the country. The district is lively, many shops, cafes, restaurants... The street where is is a supertranquila residential area, all white, whitewashed houses. The look out is magnificent. We entered, but it was already over the visit of the 2 (1000 rupees, do not accept cards) and is impressive. The next visit was at 3:30 and already the US ran out of time. There are 3 daily visits: 10, 2 and 3: 30 from Monday to Saturday, Sunday only at 10 and lasts 40 minutes.

  • GW in one night was. From the airport by taxi after midnight midnight has arrived. Happening Rohan's staff arrived much later than planned, but waiting for me, warmly welcomed us. Accommodation can be a building you don't quite feel the Bawa's here and there, I think. True, such as in Greece, woke up white spiral stairs and took the morning sun at the rooftop. This alone, Oh ~ happy to come! But anyway everything is very photogenic, so Sri Lanka day 1 in photos.--staff. We got a valuable experience. It is thanks to you me and managed to accommodate guests. Tuk-Tuk will call. Colombo Fort station tuk-tuk 250 RS

Where to stay in Colombo

Despite its relatively low cost of living, Colombo accommodations tend to be fairly pricey. Close to the sea and the lake, as well as near the city's parks and the plazas, hotels come in the form of old colonial buildings and ultra-modern high rises, with a decent selection of each to choose from. Budget-conscious travelers should pay attention to the short rental options in the town's more residential areas, or look for the smattering of simple, but serviceable options close to the main train stations, and on the side streets set back from the waterfront.
