Maya’s supremely peaceful setting is perfect for those who seek calm and serenity. The morning sunrise over infinite paddy fields, the fresh, clean air, lightly scented with frangipani flowers and exotic fruit trees, sets the scene for you to restore and renew.
Discover the natural beauty of Sri Lanka with our 4 and 6 nights Wildlife package. Dive in and explore. Maya will create a memorable holiday, and a uniquely luxurious experience. The rooms at Maya offer the same level of luxury and you can rest assured that our staff will take care of every need throughout your stay.
Sri Lanka’s southern coast hosts some of the world’s most exceptional wildlife and endangered species. This special package will let you explore some of Sri Lanka’s wildlife highlights and see natural beauty at its purest.
A trip to the Udawalawe wild elephant park, a short drive from Maya, will bring you closer to the renowned Sri Lankan elephants, wild water buffalos, and exotic birdlife. A herd of about 250 elephants reside permanently in the park, and our carefully organised picnic lunch at the reserve means you can almost dine with the elephants!
The 6 nights package also includes an excursion to Yala National Park and a picnic. The park is host to some extraordinary creatures – from elephants to reptiles and big cats. The number of mammals that has been recorded from the park is 44, and it has one of the highest leopard densities in the world. Yala harbours 215 bird species including six endemic species of Sri Lanka.
Back at Maya, indulge in delicious Sri Lankan (and international) cuisine, sip a drink by the stunning L-shaped pool, or simply watch nature unfold in our beautifully landscaped garden. Spoil yourself with a complimentary massage or opt for some restful moments soaking up the atmosphere.
Like an ecological paradise, the 2 acre garden nurtures exceptionally diverse birdlife. You need not be a naturalist nor a bird watcher to delight at the sight of exotic flora and fauna that closely surrounds Maya. Photographers and wildlife enthusiasts will delight in the colourful display of birds in their natural habitat. Or borrow our bird guidebook and binoculars to catch a glimpse of some of the 250 different native birds during an early morning walk in Maya’s surrounding countryside.
