Ambalangoda villas in West Coast, Sri Lanka

Ambalangoda is a busy provincial town famed for its mask making, southern style of dancing, antiques shops and, on its borders, its valuable moonstone mines. Undeveloped and relatively low-key, Ambalangoda’s underexposure to tourism is an attraction for many looking for adventure, discovery and seclusion. Although the town itself is a little frantic, the tropical golden beaches that stretch south towards Uruwatta and north towards Balapitiya are tranquil and often deserted except for the fishermen that pull their nets and drag their colourful catamarans onto the beach. Here and there marine turtles heave themselves onto the sand to lay their eggs under cover of moonlight; their little babies, in due course, freeing themselves from the sand and scampering desperately out to sea. Inland, a Buddhist temple on a hilltop boasting beautiful panoramic views is home to South Asia’s longest sleeping Buddha whilst the beautiful landscape of the Madhu Ganga River with its spice islands, temples and bird life is on the northern fringe of town close to Balapitiya. Boat trips atop this gentle waterway are a highlight of any holiday. Ambalangoda has a railway station and is well-facilitated with banks, pharmacies, supermarkets, a few restaurants and shops.

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!
