We have just returned from our trip to Sri Lanka as an holiday but also to have our wedding. I researched for a long time for the right place for us. I wanted somewhere stunningly beautiful, private and where we could organize all of the small details that would make it special so when I found Maya and started to communicate with the owner i knew this was the place. E mails where send back and forth and Niki and her team helped me plan it to the last little detail. We wanted a mixture of a Sri Lankan and Western and blessings from the Buddhist monks. We got all of this and more. It is difficult to explain in words what a wonderful mixture of sound , colour and atmosphere there was on that day but it was divine.As this is a review about Maya as a villa and not just our wedding the compliments just keep coming. We stayed in the old waddua which is the part that was re built and what an high standard it is yet it fits seemingly with the new rooms , the massive pool at an L that seperates the two buildings. Then there are the gardens that just flow with the rice paddy fields behind and it really is just like paradise with all the birds calling including the peacocks that roam through, sit in the hammock with a book and a cocktail, pure bliss. That leads to the another of the special things about Maya, the food its just sublime, even the snacks are so nice , and the cocktails wow, we also ate out and the staff will organize anything you want to do, and even though its not on the beach we just took the tuk tuk down there whenever we wanted then came back to the peace of Maya. Finally I would like to mention every single member of staff, everyone of them so courteous and helpful without being obtrusive the perfect blend. So weather it is for a special occasion or just to stay somewhere very special don't hesitate just go you cant help but love it
