Maya Tangalle, Sri Lanka

Maya (Sanskrit meaning Illusion or Dream) is an exquisitely executed five suite villa restoration of a Sri Lankan Manor House dating from the late 19th and early 20th century which pays dutiful homage to its Dutch and British period features whilst blending seamlessly with its new contemporary interiors and original design accents. 

Situated in the rural village of Aranwella and just eight kilometers from Tangalle in the island’s lush southern interior, Maya is set within a rich landscape of tropical gardens and coconut trees abundant with local bird life and surrounded by paddy fields.  Maya provides a true sanctuary for couples and families looking to experience the best of Sri Lanka’s heritage, culture and cuisine. 

Easy access to local attractions and the beaches of the south coast make Maya a perfect base for exploring. On Maya’s doorstep, guests can enjoy bike rides to the home village of Aranwella and the village temple. UdaWalawe wild elephant park and Kalametiya bird sanctuary are easily accessible. Night safaris to Rakewa beach can be organized to observe the endangered marine turtles nesting. The southern coast beyond Dondra is considered one of the best locations in the world for spotting Blue Whales, Sperm Whales and Spinner Dolphins.
