The hospitality is fantastic - Ranjan and his team took the best care of us, the premises are lovely, the food is just outstanding.

The moment we arrived, Ranjan met us, and we were handed a complementary drink. It was obvious there and then, that our trip was going to be magnificent. All the staff were immediately friendly and seemingly didn't know how to not smile. Our room, the orange suite, was bigger than some apartments I've been into in Sydney. High ceilings, mosquito...

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
