Max Wadiya comprises two buildings connected by a courtyard. Both open directly onto the garden and each of the five bedrooms (all with air conditioning, ceiling fans and ensuite bathrooms) enjoy sweeping sea views. The original building is around 40-years-old and features such as polished cement floors fringed by delicate tiles and deep verandas have been retained, making the most of the tropical climate. The villa’s antique furniture, including four-poster beds and rattan planter’s chairs, is also characteristic of Sri Lanka’s recent past although the addition of plush soft furnishings mean that guests can still enjoy the comforts of today. On the ground floor of the original house is a hallway leading into a living room furnished with sofas and a dining table for six, and with a purpose-built bar to the rear. To the left of the living room is bedroom 5, which has a king-size four-poster bed and sliding doors opening onto the front veranda and garden. This ground floor bedroom is ideal for elderly relatives. A wooden staircase goes up to the first floor where a spacious hallway incorporating a cosy TV corner leads between two bedrooms and onto a veranda. To one side is bedroom 4, which has a queen-sized four-poster bed, wardrobe and sliding doors onto the veranda, and directly opposite is bedroom 3, which also has a queen-sized four-poster bed as well as a walk-in closet. These two upstairs rooms work well as a family suite. The newer building houses two modern suites; one on each floor. Identical in layout, these split-level suites feature a four-poster queen-sized bed complemented by a lounge and sliding glass doors onto a private veranda. Suites come with satellite TVs, DVD players, iPod docks and stereo systems as well as kitchenettes equipped with kettles, mini fridges and coffee makers. Bathrooms feature walk-through closets and the ground floor bathroom (bedroom 2) has an additional open-air shower in a courtyard garden.
