There are five private suites across the Lunuganga Estate available for reservation. They were built in different periods of Bawa’s career and incorporate motifs and ideas from the projects he was working on at the time. The suites are preserved as they existed during the lifetime of the architect and are decorated with a resplendent mixture of antique and modern furniture, and traditional and contemporary art; the very tasteful, eclectic aesthetic that was Bawa’s hallmark. Each of the suites has a highly unique character and offers distinctive vistas across the estate. All suites have air conditioning, optional mosquito netting, and attached bathrooms with hot/cold showers.
The central house is a 1930s plantation bungalow that Bawa completely remodeled over the years to create vantages of garden and water. Common rooms include the sitting room and veranda in the main house, as well as the Garden Room, an airy and luminous double-height structure built almost entirely with salvaged materials, located at the southern edge of the Eastern Terrace about 50m away. Scattered throughout the gardens are a variety of further common spaces including terraces open to vistas, breezes, and sunlight, and garden pavilions – the Roman Pavilion and Blue Pavilion – offering seclusion and serenity.
