From the inspirational architect Geoffrey Bawa comes The Last House, nestled away in tropical gardens on the stunning southern coastline of Sri Lanka near Tangalle.

Feel at home in one of the six individually fashioned rooms, filled with a mix of antiques, local art and contemporary furnishings and boasting picturesque views of the Indian Ocean. For larger groups, the hotel can be booked as a whole to accommodate up to 14 guests.

Dine al fresco at the hotel, where experienced chefs offer fresh, wholesome seafood dishes, curated from the finest local ingredients. Alternatively, you can enjoy private dining on your veranda, or - for couples enjoying an intimate, secluded escape - treasure a romantic meal for two on the beach as the sun sets over the ocean.

The Last House facilitates a range of experiences. Borrow bikes to explore the local area, hire a small fishing boat to explore the coastline, snorkel around nearby bays and unwind on untouched beaches. For those looking to rebalance their body, the hotel can organise a luxurious Ayurvedic massage in one of the nearby spas; the ultimate indulgence that will leave you feeling perfectly pampered.

Why We Love It

The Last House is so-called because it was the architectural swansong of Geoffrey Bawa, Sri Lanka's most respected architect who blended Sri Lanka's rich cultural past with a clean modernity.
