The Sri Lanka Collection is pleased to announce the addition of its newest collection member, The Last House. This Geoffrey Bawa-designed five-bedroom boutique property sits on secluded Mawella Beach on the south coast of the island. Rooms may be booked individually or the whole villa can be rented on an exclusive basis (sleeps up to 14). The Last House is also a perfect venue for weddings and special events for up to 40 people.
Renowned for its warm hospitality, individuality and fabulous food, The Last House makes a wonderful weekend escape and is ideal as a stop off when travelling between Galle and Yala or the Hill Country. The Last House was the last private commission by Geoffrey Bawa and its simple yet thoughtful design greatly reflects his tropical modern aesthetic. Two bedrooms are located on the upper floor of the main building and a further three situated on the ground floor of an adjacent building beside a courtyard swimming pool. Space flows freely between indoor and outdoor areas offering many private places to relax and dine.
The Last House is staffed by an efficient team and the chef is responsible for some of the region’s best food – Asian-fusion cuisine starring ocean fresh fish and seafood along with plenty of delicious Sri Lankan curries. The palm-shaded lawn and the expansive beach make this hotel very family-friendly whilst the in-room balconies and verandas ensure plenty of privacy for couples too. The first floor – comprising an expansive double and a twin room – are always booked exclusively ensuring privacy irrespective of whether one or both rooms are occupied.
