Heritance Hotel (The Triton), Ahungalla, Sri Lanka

At Heritance Ahungalla (previously known as the Triton Hotel), the natural environment is never far away. The polished open plan lobby seems to float between two pools of water, with the sea beyond, so as you approach the hotel you look straight through it without really seeing it. “If the world were flat, you would be able to see Africa,” Bawa himself observed.
