Knowing the owners, this is my second time staying here. This place just keeps getting better! More than a hotel or guest house, staying here feels more like I've been given a home on loan for the duration of my stay. Only in this home the food is superb (definitely book full board,) the staff is excellent, and the ocean is crashing right outside my bedroom window. The layout of this place is cleverly done where there are multiple hangout spots, each with its own appeal: the hammocks under the coconut trees, the private verandas viewing the water, the swimming pool, the sunset deck, the beach, and a good few more. The beach is incredible: mostly free of tourists, you'll only see some locals stopping by for a swim as well as the fishermen rowing their boats in after a night out at sea. 5 stars all the way!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Max Wadiya is an award-winning select boutique hotel that offers an authentic Sri Lankan experience beyond 5-star. With a verdant garden opening onto a sweeping unspoiled beach, it offers a sanctuary of peace and tranquillity, a kitchen that rivals the best on the island and a professional and caring staff who will attend to your every need. Two luxury suites provide intimacy and privacy. A connected 3-bedroom villa, rented as a single unit, is just right for a family or group of friends. The entire 10-bed property, which can be expanded with extra beds for children, is perfect for reunions or gatherings of far-flung families. All rooms are en-suite with terraces overlooking the Indian Ocean. A secluded 40-foot infinity pool is a watery alternative to the sea, and ayurvedic treatments and massages are available on request. Tariffs are inclusive of three full meals, taxes, service charge and extras like coffee or afternoon tea. The Wadiya does not serve alcohol but guests are welcome to bring their own, without a corkage fee. The concept: your temporary home on the beach. ... more less
