Owner description: Balancing the human senses through holistic harmony is the mission of the Spa at Maya. From the simplest treatment to an extended sensory journey, skilled and caring therapists have but one goal – to create memorable experiences for guests. Hosted in the lush river rainforest valley, the spa extends calm and tranquility. From a central reception pavilion, walkways wind through lush foliage to private treatment pavilions, which are complete with daybeds overlooking the valley, bathtubs, outdoor showers and toilet facilities. These are personal havens in which to enjoy a variety of body re-charge treatments and extended spa packages. For the ultimate reflexology recharge, Riverside Deck overhangs the energetic waters of Petanu. It is here that flagging spirits are stimulated in this ancient healing therapy. Spa at Maya also offers Pevonia Tropical Rejuvenation products for skin and repair facials, using rich micro-emulsified gel and age defying collagen booster treatments - for both him and her – complimenting the whole body focus that includes body scrubs and wraps. Additionally, a relaxing bathing experience can be enjoyed in the privacy of a guest’s own villa or room, with a selection of four luxurious alternatives prepared by a personal assistant.

We went to use the maya spa facilities for their massage package. Each time we go to Bali we will make reservation to have their extended massage package. For ten years the place and the package has been a subliminal experience.

Unfortunately on this trip the quality of the massage therapists and abilities has deteriorated significantly. The massage experience was poor and did not live up to its billing.

When we expressed dissatisfaction the spa manager very graciously offered to waive the charges. While we appreciate the gesture we are disappointed that one of Ubud subliminal experience is falling in its standards and hope they will do whatever it takes to maintain or improve it in the future.

We were looking for a romantic couples' spa treatment in Bali, and this fully met expectations. We had a private open-air bungalow overlooking a lovely river and tropical jungle with flowers everywhere. We each had 3 treatments side-by-side and tailored to him and her, plus a milk-flower bath together at the end. It was not cheap by Asian travel standards, but considering the number of treatments and the time we spent there (about 3 hours), the price was certainly reasonable (and *really* cheap by U.S. or European standards)! The treatments were well above average, and the service was excellent. They really gave us our privacy and let us enjoy the space. Highly recommended for a romantic couple spa splurge!

I had wanted to stay at maya ubud during my recent visit to Bali but stupidly stayed opposite the monkey forest. Instead the day I left for Bali I reserved a two hr booking at the spa at maya. The setting is gorgeous, it's so peaceful. During my treatment there was an hour thunderstorm which I loved because the room opens out to the rainforest and the smell and breeze wafts onto the room. I found the service attentive and of high quality. I tried various other spas in Bali and this is my favourite yet.

I first visited this Spa 8 years ago and it has always been my "one to beat" that all others spa's have been compared to. I returned with a friend for a special birthday treat and it was worth every penny. The setting is just as beautiful, lush and tropical as i remember. The sound of the river while having a fantastic relaxing massage is wonderful. The flower bath is lovely with loads of Frangipani's and orchids(!) a drink and nibble are provided too.
The staff are very experienced - knew exactly what they were doing, they were friendly and helpful and really went out of their way to make sure we had a good visit.
You really do get the full spa / pampering experience here, it's like nowhere else in the world!!

Maya spa is located down a river valley of a mountain surrounded by forests and water cascade.. The individual spa room has an open concept with a splendid view of the outdoors and the bath is just there. While the massage and treatments were not the best I've experience but still very good, soaking in the flower bath was most unforgettable - in total nature surrounding yet luxurious at the same time. I could have been there forever.. And yes, the service was very good and you feel pampered as a queen..
