September 1st – 14th September 2020


The Ultimate Bawa Tour is a combination of the Ultimate and the Bawa Architecture tour. By September 2020, lets hope it is time to get out there and see the world again.

This trip will head north from Colombo to Puttalam – on the coast. Here we can spend a restful day at the beach before heading inland to Anuradapura and then Dambulla. This is the start of the cultural triangle, with many ancient ruins and World Heritage sites like Lion Rock. In Dambulla we visit one of Bawa’s most famous projects – the Heritance Kandalama.

After Kandy, and the wonders of the Buddhist Temple of the Tooth, we spend a couple of days in the High Tea Country. Leaving “Little England” we head back down to the south coast. We stop for one day on the way to visit the elephants. At the south coast, we explore the amazing tropical beaches and excellent restaurants. The ancient trading port city of Galle, is a highlight and we stay at Bawa’s magnificent Lighthouse Hotel.

The coast road between Galle and Colombo is filled with interesting things to see. One highlight is Lunaganga – Bawa’s weekend retreat and garden creation. The last three days are in the bustling capital of Colombo. Plenty of time to explore the city, do some shopping and experience some fine dining.

This tour is 14 days to make the most of the extended trip. There is still plenty of downtime and enough double nights not to feel rushed. We stay at excellent hotels.

This tour is limited to six people with three seats are already taken.
