Combining the heritage of a 19th century manor house and new contemporary designs, recently opened Maya, close to Tangalle on the Southern tip of the island, is a great place to soak up Sri Lanka’s culture and natural beauty. Set against a backdrop of coconut trees and paddy fields, Maya exudes colonial charm and offers five suites with private courtyards and four-poster beds. Not to mention that you’ll have access to the Sri Lankan fusion cuisine of chef Darasana.
