Reviewed October 22, 2011

I arrived on a amazing seaplane flight from Colombo & landed on the lake at Dickwella, 19 km from Maya. A short 20 minute car ride later I arrived at this stunning villa. We were a group of friends and had the villa to ourselves. Maya is a delightful 100 year old Dutch house lovingly put back together to it's former glory, very refreshing and well designed. The highly professional and friendly staff looked after our every need, including a picnic on the beach 15 minutes from Maya. All the rooms are fabulous and spacious, and 3 lead onto private patios. A large swimming pool spans the house merging with the green expanse of the gardens and endlessly green paddy fields. The chef surprised us all with his culinary skills, we ate very well throughout our stay. Highly recommended. We will definitely go back.

This beautiful villa in an idyllic setting was sadly ruined by the Buddhist monastery next door which broadcasts a 45 min daily chant & service exceedingly loud on what feels like is actually in your room - not so Zen. Earplugs kindly left by the owners do nothing to soften the noise... Shame as the villa is lovely, beautifully appointed, attentive staff & for somewhere quite remote, a talented chef serving Sri Lankan & western dishes. Not a lot of privacy for couples or friends if sharing the 5 bedroom villa with others, but the grounds and surrounding area could be enough of an escape for some. Worth a visit but be prepared for early wake up's...

Room Tip: Bedrooms in the original house have a little more character. No aircon, but this is being sorted soo...
