4.1
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.

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.
