We stayed here for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon. It is one of the best places we have ever stayed. From the moment we arrived we felt calm and serene. Maya is so luxurious but in an understated way, the rooms are beautiful and the food is the best we had in Sri Lanka. If you enjoy pure... More

A friend and I stayed at Maya for 4 nights in February. Maya is gorgeous - the grounds are beautiful, overlooking rice paddies and the rooms are gorgeous. Ours had a private courtyard, with the bathroom and bedroom opening out through sliding glass doors that disappeared into the wall. The food was delicious, if a little pricey. But the staff... More

We stayed at Maya for two nights in the first week of January during our ten day holiday in India. From the moment we entered the property I had a fantastic vibe about Maya. I wanted to immediately settle into one of the hammocks in the lush and expansive garden which had plenty of palm trees and an unobstructed view... More

We stayed at Maya for two nights in January 2014 and my only complaint was the we had to leave. From the moment we arrived the friendly, thoughtful staff made sure our stay was as relaxing as possible. The rooms are spacious and private and the hotel grounds are divine. We sat having cocktails watching wild peacock's dance one evening.... More

My family and I stayed at Villa Maya in Tangalle in October 2013. I had seen the pictures and thought how nice it looked, but really it wasn’t until we got there after a long drive that the beauty of the place struck me. Not just the setting overlooking paddy fields, the river and wild peacocks, but the charm of... More

We stayed 6 nights at Maya in October with our 16 months old son. Weather was surprisingly delightful and we hadn't much trouble with mosquitos. We had a very great time. To take into account we were the only guests of 2 nights out of 6 and there was only one other room occupied during the 4 other nights... Felt... More

The first time I saw photos of this place in the magazine I knew I was going to visit it... It took 2 years but we made it... I have to mention that arranging the stay at this place was the best I ever experienced. From the moment I sent email to make reservation I got perfect service. Emails were... More

We were some time ago, but still remember that special dinner and a wonderful day at the hotel. The best, the professionalism of the waiter and get up in the morning in that atmosphere of peace and tranquility.

We loved the 2 nights we spent in this 5 rooms hotel. First, it was in a unique setting, very quiet, in front of a rice paddy. So peaceful ! Moreover, we wera almost alone, only 2 rooms were occupied. The staff was really, really nice, charming, devoted, and quite. The food was excellent, one of the best meal we... More

This is a beautiful, peaceful corner of the world (and of Sri Lanka) to escape and relax. The staff are amazing, the place itself is incredible and there couldn't be more done to make your stay wonderful (even subscribing to a new satellite channel so my partner could watch the Lions rugby by the pool.) I'd highly recommend a stay... More
