Exploring the resort’s Geoffrey Bawa-inspired architecture.

Geoffrey Bawa, the father of Tropical Modernist architecture, began the design of our resort in 1995. The main building in this Geoffrey Bawa hotel highlights his signature aesthetic of sunlit, breezy structures at one with their surrounds.

This was to be one of his final projects. Following his illness and death, the project lay dormant for 15 years until one of his protégés, Channa Daswatte, completed this Geoffrey Bawa architecture masterpiece.

Bawa’s vision also inspires the resort library, modelled on his personal study, where furnishings either designed or owned by him are put together to create a particularly Bawa-style interior.



Geoffrey Bawa was one of the greatest architects of his generation, and known throughout the world for his signature style of Tropical Modernism. His designs can be found across the entirety of Sri Lanka – from private oceanfront estates to the iconic parliament building in bustling Colombo – as well as further afield, from Bali to Mauritius.

Anantara Kalutara Resort is pleased to introduce the new mobile app that showcases the resort’s iconic architecture by Geoffrey Bawa. Take an audio and visual trip via the app which is now available for download on the Google Play and the Apple App Store.
