Ganga Kutir Residency is inspired from the overwhelming response to Ganga Kutir, our boutique resort and spa. Quiet, intimate and tasteful, in a short span of time Ganga Kutir has become the chosen retreat for those seeking a reflective and rejuvenating pause. On the edge of the majestic Ganges, amidst lush greens and vast open spaces, Ganga Kutir Residency now extends the Ganga Kutir boutique resort experience to private residential homes. Far from the madding crowd, the country homes are a quintessential blend of modern amenities in a vernacular aesthetic that are both comfortable and inviting. Channa Daswatte, one of Sri Lanka’s leading architects, drew inspiration from an ashram community while designing Ganga Kutir Residency. The understated yet eclectic design, we hope, will leave you refreshed. Ganga Kutir Residency has been conceived with eco-friendly materials such as clay bricks and khapra roof tiles that will exude an earthy look and feel, right from the word go.

“In an age of environmental concern, Ganga Kutir Residency has used recycled bricks from old materials, enhancing its character. The property suggests that architecture married to nature can be the ‘refreshing change’ that we are seeking in our lives.”
