Our Review

Overall Rating:

Max Wadiya offers an ideal retreat for beach lovers and those who prefer being away from the crowds, even though the many attractions of the region are still within an easy drive. Children will love the large garden and swimming pool, and easy access to the quiet beach and there are plenty of games and sports equipment to keep them amused here.

The bedrooms are a little unequal in that the two suites are more luxurious than the rooms in the original building, but we thought this layout might suit a couple of families well (putting the children in the main house and giving parents some peace and privacy in the new building). Max Wadiya would also be a great place for the extended family as the ground floor bedroom in the main house is ideal for less mobile relatives plus there are lots of opportunities – indoors and out – to find your own private space.

The staff are friendly and helpful, and looked after us with a lot of warmth. The villa is offered on a full-board basis, which makes it good value for money. There is an emphasis on fresh, home-style food. A western menu is typically offered for lunch, with Sri Lankan cuisine for dinner. Breakfast is a mix, whilst cake is always offered with afternoon tea. Max Wadiya is great place to savour authentic local dishes – you can even have a cookery lesson and take home recipes for everything you cook, plus a bag of spices to get you started!

Highlights

Max Wadiya faces what feels like your own wide stretch of sandy beach, which is a definite highlight. For the active, Max Wadiya offers lots of possibilities, both at home and in the nearby area, and the villa’s Sri Lankan cuisine is also a big plus for those wishing to try some authentic dishes.

Surprises

Since the villa lies between the beach and the main Galle Road, with the railway line just inland you might hear some traffic noise, however much of this is drowned out by the soothing sound of the sea, which is excellent for swimming in season (November to April).
