My partner and I stayed at Max Wadiya for two weeks, and our experience could not have been better! Truly perfect accommodations for the relaxing and unique “get away” trip we needed. The rooms and furnishings are beautiful, the views were stunning, and the “Tangerine Suite” where we stayed was clean, quiet, and felt more luxurious and comfortable than I had even anticipated. Colorful flowers, fresh ocean breezes, and rescued baby sea turtles finding their way back to the ocean at sunset. Do I even need to say amazing? AMAZING.
The beach was literally steps away from our room and felt very private, with the occasional fishing boat arriving in the morning, and a few friendly neighbors passing throughout the day. I also LOVED the salt water pool which was the perfect compliment to the ocean for a more gentle swim at certain times of the day.
The food. The food! As someone who loves to eat and cook, I would say this an area where few hotels really shine, but the Wadiya was exceptional. We really enjoyed the fresh caught seafood, the delicious salads and curries, and I think I tasted something different for every meal during our entire stay. I also have some special dietary requirements that the kitchen went above and beyond to accommodate without hesitation. Really impressive.
The staff was friendly, respectful, and they clearly take great pride in offering top-notch hospitality. Ranjan, the resident hotel manager, was kind, honest, and really helpful in finding interesting things to explore. He also helped us arrange transportation, and the details of a few day-trips so we could experience a wider range of the culture and wildlife of Sri Lanka.
Also want to mention that, as a gay couple, we felt completely comfortable and welcome at Max Wadiya, which is not always the case when traveling. I'm so grateful for this, as it really had an impact on our enjoyment of the whole trip.
There are just so many little details that make this place special. Like the fresh pitcher of milk for coffee and bottle of water left in our refrigerator each evening. Or the fresh coconuts from trees growing outside our windows. Or the way we would come back to our room and find it magically refreshed, complete with flowers on the pillows (the perfect touch of romance I must say). I could go on and on…
We loved it here, and would stay again without hesitation!
