We had an absolutely incredible stay at Maya. It is absolutely beautiful, with incredible service and delicious food. The perfect place to relax, swim, yoga, read, beach, tan, eat and drink. Difficult to find such attention to detail anywhere else. We will definitely be back soon!

I just finished a week of pure bliss at Maya on a yoga retreat and it was perfection! The location is stunning, the food and service were outstanding and the rooms and outdoor areas are beautiful. Such a special place!

I just completed a yoga retreat here and it was amazing. Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely staff and the food was simply delicious. Peace and quiet, completely relaxing. Lovely spacious rooms and beautiful gardens to relax and enjoy.

I wish I had longer than just one night in Maya Villa. There was a sudden rush of peace that washed over me as soon as i stepped foot on the grounds. The scenery is beautiful, and the space itself is immaculately maintained. I loved how there were mangos dropping from the trees all around, and gorgeous crotched hammocks strung...

After a hectic ten days exploring the history and nature of Sri Lanka, Maya was a haven of tranquillity. Our room (which they allowed us to choose on arrival) was beautifully designed, light and airy while being cool and private, and it’s a wonderful property to relax in the shade watching the bird life (notably the 50 or so peacocks...

We went for a lunch to Maya last month and it was absolutely amazing. The service was outstanding and the food was scrumptious. The grounds were lovely and we saw lots of birds , some near the waterbody . The trees in the property were also beautiful.

Perfect luxury haven in Sri Lanka. Very peaceful, gorgeous rooms and villas. Food was finger-licking! Service is 5 stars! The vistas around the hotel are breathtaking. Perfect for a romantic or a relaxation getaway, but also for families. We stayed there 2 nights with our 3-year old toddler, and we had a lot of fun. They provide games and boards...

We booked this hotel knowing we desperately needed sometime to unwind and relax in the sun. It could not have been more perfect. We stayed 3 nights and didn't even leave the grounds - we were so happy spending our days just lazing by the pool with incredible food throughout the day. Try the beetroot hummus - yum!
