We stopped at Maya for lunch.. its a beautiful old villa converted to a boutique hotel. Gorgeous property facing the paddy fields.Dinesh welcomed us very warmly and the staff were very friendly and nice. The food was amazing too ! It’s definitely a piece of heaven.

Be seduced by the peaceful surroundings of Maya – set in the lush southern countryside, and with abundant sights on its doorstep, the villa is an ideal base to explore, but also to simply relax at the end of the day.

Our packages include visits to the renowned Mulkirigala Rock temple, the Katharagama temple and the Weurukannala temple. To make the experience yet more special, all meals and transfers are included and we will offer a herbal massage – a traditional Sri Lankan full body treatment using a special organically grown tropical herbal oil. This herbal massage will improve blood circulation, muscle tone and remove tension – the perfect way to relax at the end of a busy sightseeing day!
Back at Maya, enjoy quiet moments by the pool, watch sunset over the paddy fields, relax in a hammock or simply rest in one of the luxury suites. A stroll to the local village temples is also a wonderful way to get a sense of the sacred atmosphere. Or you could opt for a blessing by the Head Monk at the neighbouring temple!

Thekka in the Old House opens out to the sky-blue pool. Original 25ft high ceilings, original intricate lattice work, a towering kingsize 4 poster bed draped by a mosquito net and antique fittings, evoke that colonial chic atmosphere, so unique to Maya. Thekka and Khumbuk are the perfect rooms to book if you are coming to Maya with your family.

Fantastic place. We had it for our own. 5 rooms and us 5 were alone! A treat! I understand the low attendance since it is remote, 10 min away from the nearest village, so, far from alternative restaurants. We stayed for 3 nights. Prices were like in Europe. A rip off. We have been one week in Sri Lanka and know prices should not be 7 or 8 times higher than the alternative. Also they did not offer tea bags in the rooms but charged for them. The owner, a lady in London should improve those details and they would attract more travelers since the place is stunning! The atmosphere relaxed, clean, spacious, rice field integrated, modern facility, WIFI, music at the dinner table, jazzy, great. Special. Great temperature. Silva, the manager asks too much for your attention, but always with a smile. Rest of staff perfect, service oriented. Great place, a pity we could not enjoy it as much as we would have wanted (meals prices).
