Taru Villas Maia HERO

Taru Villas Maia

Discover Taru Villas Maia

Maia is a private and luxurious boutique hotel from the Taru Villas collection. Based in Habarana, in Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle, it can be a base from which to ascend the majestic Sigiriya rock fortress or to tour the ancient cities of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa. It is a fresh interpretation of old-world Sri Lankan architecture with sweeping views of the surrounding plantations and wilderness. It’s the perfect place to de-stress surrounded by nature.

The hotel offers 8 superior rooms and 2 premier chalets, all luxuriously appointed. The superior rooms have a king-size bed, 360-degree views and a private terrace whilst the premier chalets are larger and stand apart from all other accommodations on the property. Dining takes place in an elegant open-air dining salon and the restaurant serves a mouthwatering array of local and international dishes. In the late afternoon head to the pool and lounge with a cocktail whilst taking in a picturesque sunset over a sprawling paddy field.
