Nisala Arana


Geoffrey Bawa Inspired Hotel Experience

Colonial style bedroom suites. The freshwater pool, yoga inspiring gardens and open pavilion where delicious cuisine is accompanied by fine wines,
makes this hotel one of the finest discoveries in Sri Lanka, an ode to all Geoffrey Bawa hotels found here.

“All rooms are tastefully furnished with period antiques set against white washed walls and polished cement floors.“

within courtyard gardens, indoor ponds and open plan bathrooms. Experience Nisala Arana from the original 170-year-old Doctor’s House, the Colonial styled
Coconut rooms or the spacious and shaded Mango suites.
