The owners, Ruth and Arthur Max, have created a paradise; the setting of this small, boutique hotel is just gorgeous, and could compete as a romantic idyll in any movie script.
The entire building and grounds are aesthetically furnished and decorated, and no stone has been left unturned to ensure guests’ total enjoyment and relaxation.
The staff were superb ably headed by Ranjan, who ensured that our every request was fulfilled. I have no doubt that the experience would have been vastly different without his input, assistance and presence. He is a great asset.
The meals were varied and delicious, especially as I am a great lover of curry myself. They were always beautifully presented and interesting.
It is no surprise therefore that their guest book is filled with the highest praise and lavish compliments – all richly deserved!
While Sri Lanka will remain for me a place of lush vegetation and greenery, tea plantations and windy roads, I do believe the Max Wadiya will always represent the epitome of luxury and excellence that I was privileged to enjoy.
Highly recommended for a total R and R vacation.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Max Wadiya is an award-winning select boutique hotel that offers an authentic Sri Lankan experience beyond 5-star. With a verdant garden opening onto a sweeping unspoiled beach, it offers a sanctuary of peace and tranquillity, a kitchen that rivals the best on the island and a professional and caring staff who will attend to your every need. Two luxury suites provide intimacy and privacy. A connected 3-bedroom villa, rented as a single unit, is just right for a family or group of friends. The entire 10-bed property, which can be expanded with extra beds for children, is perfect for reunions or gatherings of far-flung families. All rooms are en-suite with terraces overlooking the Indian Ocean. A secluded 40-foot infinity pool is a watery alternative to the sea, and ayurvedic treatments and massages are available on request. Tariffs are inclusive of three full meals, taxes, service charge and extras like coffee or afternoon tea. The Wadiya does not serve alcohol but guests are welcome to bring their own, without a corkage fee. The concept: your temporary home on the beach. ... more less
