Dee Gibson is a British Sri Lankan interior designer and hotelier living in London. In 2016 she bought a plot of land in Sri Lanka and built a luxury villa that she proudly describes as design led and has social impact. Dee was a silver winner for Most Inspiring Business Woman in a national UK award in 2020, and is a charity trustee, speaker and mentor.
Dee is using her voice and skills to curate experience based holidays for adventurous, conscious travelers while also talking about matters close to her heart. She believes that without this kind of travel, we will all regress. As the world put up borders, it is key to break them down by encouraging people to travel MORE, touch some skin, leave behind a positive social footprint, give back to communities, and bring back interesting stories to tell. We are part of a global community.
Kalukanda House is a design led, ethical destination in the luxury market. Dee aims for a circular economy that is sustainably driven and commercial while supporting local communities. Being part of the transformative and regenerative design and travel movement is Dee’s focus as we come out of lockdown.Support the show
