The Villa

The villa sits on a plot of land that for generations was owned by a family involved in the polishing and trade of precious stones. In fact, even today the neighbouring city of Beruwela remains the hub of the stone cutting and polishing business in Sri Lanka.

The present owners bought the land and an old house that stood on it in 2004. Their intention was to take down the old structure and build a new villa in its place for use as a vacation home. Plans were made and approved and detailed drawings produced for a thoroughly modern two-story structure. Construction was about to begin. But then the Tsunami came and everything changed.

What our guests say!


Because of Covid 19 restrictions no events are currently scheduled for the Maggona, Beruwela and Galle areas. However, other activities such as water sports, shopping, site seeing remain open. Please contact the staff for details. This section will be updated as soon as the situation starts to return to normal and previously scheduled events are confirmed with new dates.

In the meantime we would like to remind you that VM is the ideal holiday destination during the Covid 19 crisis because we only let the villa to a single party at time. So your exposure is limited to only those you know – family and friends. This is not possible at other holiday properties such as hotels and large multi room villas.

We would like you to enjoy these stunning photographs of Villa Maggona taken by the the Galle based photographer Hannah Wood. What the photographs cannot capture of course is the magical ambience of Villa Maggona, the sound of the sea, the breeze, the chirping of birds, the fragrances of flowers. These have to be experienced.

Whale Watching, Mirissa

About 80 minutes drive from Villa Maggona, just past Galle is Mirissa, the internationally-renowned spot in the Indian Ocean where it is possible to see blue whales in concentrations rarely seen elsewhere. The blue whales, including young whale calves gather here to feed between the months of November and April.

Water Sports, Bentota

Bentota is renowned as the water sport capital of Sri Lanka with operators in the area actively promoting water sports: speed boat and jet ski riding, wind surfing, boogie boarding, water skiing and kite surfing are among the sports enjoyed here. Some offer deep sea diving and fishing. Leisurely boat trips along River Bentota are popular too.


Villa Maggona is centrally located so that visitors can take advantage of a wide range of activities most within an hours drive. The Beruwela lagoon is ten minutes away. Here you can water ski, or learn to water ski. The instructors are patient and knowledgable. Jet skis are avaialble for rent. Or you can take a boat ride into the spectacular mangrove forest. For those enamoured of architecture the home of the pioneering Sri Lankan architect Geofrey Bawa is a short drive away and open to the public on most days.
