“Paradise on earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

I was taken to this excellent restaurant by these wonderful people I know, just over 2 weeks ago while I was battling against the monsoons in Kerala, it was like stepping into an other world, the gardens,building,furniture,layout,ambiance,where do I start ! exceptional food,continental,as well as Asian,the service perfect,without them hovering over you,,outside & indoor eating, fountains ,streams running through the gardens along with fish, tropical flowers and plants ,with statues discreetly here and there,just to add to the atmosphere ,when I return,I know where I will be returning to.must say they didn't serve alcohol , but it didn't matter, the rest made up for it.

“Villa Maya, Trivandrum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

I had vegetarian dinner at Villa Maya on Sunday, 28 July 2013. The ambience is perfectly moulded for soothing a busy mind, the food is cooked with professional excellence, the courtesies of the staff are pleasing and the live classical music sets the tone for a perfect dinner. The owners have certainly put in hard work for things to be in place, especially the lighting and its effects. How I wish this fine-dining restaurant existed in Mumbai ! Suffice it to say, that it is worth flying to Trivandrum to visit Villa Maya.
