Taru Maia

The hotel data

Fronted by an open-sided ambalama surrounded by a water lily-filled pond, Taru Maia invites tranquillity from the moment you cross the threshold. As this hotel is a dedicated wellness destination, this atmosphere fits perfectly.


All of the Taru properties are praised for their exceptional design, and Taru Maia is no exception. The property is laid out across a hidden wilderness, dotted with pockets of forest and open fields beyond. Stroll far enough and you’ll reach the vast Habarana Lake where you can take in uninterrupted views of the iconic Sigiriya and Pidurangala rocks.


Taru Maia aims to nourish guests from head to toe, body and soul. Relax by the infinity pool after outings to the nearby heritage sites and dine on elevated takes on local dishes and international favourites. Spend time in the Wellness Pavilion for mental and spiritual stimulation, practicing yoga and meditation in a guided group session or relaxing alone and listening to the sound of the birds.


Terracotta tiles, exposed brick and rich red wood warm the room interiors that are simple while remaining stylish. There’s plenty of space to relax here too, in the indoor seating area or bathtub and out on the terrace or balcony. The rooms have all essential amenities. For more space and privacy, choose the Premier Chalets which have a setting that invites romance.
