The Last House, Tangalle

An immaculate beach just a few steps from your room. A pool set in tropical gardens. Sri Lanka’s southern sightseeing, wildlife and cultural highlights on your doorstep.

With its sublimely relaxed atmosphere and beachfront setting, The Last House should be among the first hotels you consider for your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Sri Lanka. One of the last properties designed by renowned Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa, the aptly named Last House blurs the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces. Fresh white walls contrast with the colourful furnishings, whilst the windows overlook beautiful lagoon or sea views. 

The hotel has four ensuite bedrooms (including one two-bedroom suite), but can also be booked exclusively as a villa sleeping up to 12 guests. Tasty Asian fusion and classic Sri Lankan dishes are served in the open-air dining room, whilst the central courtyard frames a lovely emerald pool. Just outside your room lies one of Sri Lanka’s most unspoilt beaches, Mawella, and a little further afield a plethora of wildlife and cultural attractions. Excursions to Galle’s mighty coral and rock fort, whale watching and safaris within the celebrated Yala National Park await.
