Maya Villa
Tangalle

A stylish and soothing property, combining the perfect balance of colonial charm and modern contemporary, Maya will impress the most style conscious and well-heeled guests.

Hidden away within two acres of lush gardens, amongst trees as old as the property, Maya is conveniently located near the small village of Aranwella, just a fifteen minute drive from Tangalle. As you enter the property, you drive past ancient trees and a small Buddhist shrine, before this beautiful 110-year old colonial house reveals itself.

With five en-suite suites, this property is perfect for a chilled out getaway and it can also be rented out as a private villa. In 2012 it was renovated into a hotel, with homage to its Dutch and British roots – the historic building exterior and intricately carved windows have been maintained – and the interior has been given a chic facelift by Niki Fairchild, an interior designer with an impeccable eye for style, detailing and subtle colouring. The house cradles a 20 metre L-shaped pool, and faces out onto a savannah-like landscape bordering lush jungle, attracting a large number of birdlife. There is also a cool outdoor dining and bar area, and a secluded hammock in the garden to admire the views.

Maya is perfect for families with toddlers, a group of friends or ideal for honeymooners looking for space and seclusion.
