An award winning architectural achievement, Villa Maggona is a hidden gem located in the Golden Triangle of Sri Lanka’s southern coast and off the beaten track in peaceful seclusion. Immersed in tropical gardens in blissful privacy, this home is in complete harmony with its environment with beautiful views of the Indian Ocean. The focus here is on generous hospitality and exceptional service derived from memories of family gatherings and traditional food and thoughtful but unobtrusive pampering.
Designed by architect Madhura Prematilleke whose Colombo based practice specialises in both residential and commercial environmental design, the villa won the 2010 Architect’s design award and combines both function and style with influences from his work in Asia, the Middle East, India and Finland. Constructed using local wood and stone, the horizontal silhouette aligns with the horizon with open air living spaces and views out to sea. Three of the four en-suite bedrooms open out along the veranda that runs parallel to the swimming pool with a fourth en-suite “garden room,” for a total occupancy of eight.
The large dining pavilion at the far left of the pool and the breakfast veranda offer intimate alfresco dining options with ‘elevenses’ by the pool, tea and cakes in the shade of the coconut trees in the afternoon and delicious bites for cocktail hour along with personalised menus with your preferences in mind. Food is prepared and served in an authentic home style with the belief that when cooked and served with joy and generosity, a meal becomes a blessing to both giver and receiver.
This is a delightful and authentic Sri Lankan experience with all of the modern comforts and unique character and traditions of the island.
Villa Maggona is fully staffed including private chef. There is WiFi throughout, TV and DVD in each room. Housekeeping and laundry services are available at additional cost as are spa and massage services.
