“Thank you all for a wonderful stay at VM! We enjoyed the wonderful food, the beautiful architecture, the waves and all animals and birds. The best service from all the staff. A great holiday!”

“Our 4th visit – says enough doesn’t it? No…so why do we always look forward so much to our return: Well, we can’t quite decide whether we are in spiritual Nirvana or food heaven, crafted by the delightful chef… We are not sure whether it’s the gentle rustling of the palm trees or the swish of the sweeping brush wielded by A, ensuring the place is kept ship shape…. Or maybe it is the sound of the sea lapping up the beach whilst reading in the hammock, or it is R keeping the pristine pool just so for your laps…. Well, one thing we can be sure of is that there is no place we would rather be… Thank you to you all for making this place so special to us."

We had a wonderful stay at the Villa: very relaxing and such beautiful surroundings. I only wish I could take the chefs home with me. Thanks again, this place is seriously amazing!

PS We will be back!!

“We are absolutely in love with the architecture and interior design of the house. We are also very pampered by your attentive staff. The food is delightful. As my son Nikhil (5) will say, the “the house is EPIC!” Thank you.”

“Thank you for making our stay here so relaxing and unique. The food here stands out from other places we have stayed in Sri Lanka and it was one of the main reasons we have come back for a second stay. The service has been incredibly attentive and nothing has been too much trouble. Three generations have loved our stay. Best wishes for the future.”

“What a fabulous holiday we have had. This is our first visit to Sri Lanka and we are so glad we spent it at Villa Maggona. The Villa and gardens are absolutely beautiful- we have so many photographs of amazing sunsets. The food is fantastic and abundant and the service impeccable. We have great memories of carom games and lots of laughs and jokes. Thank you for the tuc tuc rides, the advice about what to see and where to go…

We are very, very sad to leave this paradise, not only for the beautiful surroundings but also the brilliant staff. A perfect hideaway indeed !!

You have a glorious slice of paradise here and we have so enjoyed our glimpses of it. The food is fabulous, the service is gentle and understated whilst making sure all our needs were met. The house itself it stunning and the gardens and beach are just magnificent..

This was the ultimate holiday: swaying palms, direct beach access, friendly staff, and the food, oh the food! We leave here with less stress yet more kilos thanks to the delicious curries, hoppers, coconut sambol, fried bitter gourd and pancakes.

Climbing the rocks and playing in the pool was the perfect counterpoint to all our eating!

Thank you for all the helpful advice, understated service and magnificent cooking. We hope to return.

We were here to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The ambience and feeling are beyond the scope of any words, any language to explain. You got to be here to feel it. Very hospitable staff; amazingly delicious food. Our favorite place was the patio.

Villa Maggona, It’s about peace, tranquility and service, the wonderful sounds on the roof of the rain, the shadows in the verandah creates these incredible patterns that engulfs you…

The Villa is a place of quite a wonderful contemplative therapy. Simply inspiring with the enclosure of the Villa that surrounds you… Madhura’s work is inspiring…The sense of place and space one gets from this Villa is beyond this world- its paradise on earth
