What I liked:

We really enjoyed our stay at Maya. Our room

was beautifully designed - a modern but rustic feel. The staff were incredibly friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. The food quality was also very good.

What the hotel could do better:

Nothing, had a wonderful stay.

Hotel Description

To the ever-lengthening list of can’t-miss hideaways on the Sri Lankan coast, it’s time to add another: Maya Villa, on the south coast a few miles from Tangalle, is a stunning, secluded little escape, a five-room speck of a place on a century-old estate surrounded by paddy fields and unspoiled old growth. Architecturally speaking, it’s half new, half old; the original manor house is wedded to a new wing, but the transition is scarcely noticeable, as the interiors throughout hew to a consistently contemporary look, the clean lines and smooth expanses of concrete matched with modernist and antique furniture.

It’s a place for lounging, more than anything else, whether in the private shaded sitting areas or by the pool that bisects the two villas. Any game you can play on a lawn is playable here, from croquet to cricket, and yoga and Tai Chi instruction is available to anyone desiring a little instruction in the slow arts — not to mention some world-class birdwatching. And it’s also a place for staging an expedition or two, whether into the island’s interior or out to the coast. The beaches near Tangalle are a short drive away, as is some of the region’s finest whale- and dolphin-watching.

How to get there:

Maya Villa is located 3.5 hours away from Colombo airport. Transfers cost $110 USD per taxi. There is also an option of taking a sea plane (35 minutes from Colombo to Dikwella and then 20 minutes from Dikwella to Maya Villa). Alternatively, guests can fly to the Koggala airport (which is just outside Galle); this airport is a 1.5 hour drive to Maya Villa. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for further information and/or assistance with airport transfers.
