We had the most fantastic holiday at Cocoa Maya villa. The accommodation is outstanding and very well presented with fantastic views of the mountains to the rear and the sea. The staff really looked after us all being very helpful in providing wonderful food for my two daughters with coeliac disease, so a strict gluten free diet. As well as enjoying the pool and sea and just generally chilling, the villa proved a great base to explore Ubud and go white water rafting. We also loved Candidasa. Of the three locations we stayed in Bali, Lovina and Nusa Ceningan being the other two, we loved the town with great bars, restaurants and shops. A great stay and a villa we would highly recommend.
We stayed at Villa Cocoa Maya for 5 nights and were a group of 8 including 2 children and an infant. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The views are just breathtaking. Waking up every morning to look at the gardens and blue ocean is something else.
The villa itself is very well maintained, all the bedrooms are huge and there are several areas for guests to relax without feeling like you are on top of each other.
The team at the villa are just so lovely. They cannot do enough to help you and they really helped make our stay truly memorable.
We stated at 3 further villas after this one but Cocoa Maya remained the firm favourite.
We have really enjoyed our stay in the Villa Cocoa Maya on Bali. The villa is in a very high quality, with fantastic view to the sea from all rooms and it has directly access to the beach. Each of the 4 bedrooms are spacious with well function air condition and has its own bathroom.
The living room is also spacious with modern TV and comfortable sofa. During the day, we sit mostly outside enjoying the nice view and pleasant climate. We visited Bali before, therefore we just enjoyed the nice villa and the sea during our short stay this year.
Good quality breakfast was served every day with different choices of egg or Indonesian breakfast. Some very nice restaurants are within the short walking distance, or the restaurant provides complimentary pick-up and return service. Furthermore, there is a restaurant offering food delivery service, which have good and non-spicy and tasty foods. We appreciated it that the villa staff helped us to order the food. We liked this service very much, because it is less hassle, and we could enjoy the foods in a nice private home ambiance. The villa staff also offer the cooking service for lunch or dinner, however, we found that the choice (there is a menu) was limited and the food (for lunch) we got was of very small portion and not top quality.
We did snorkeling off the coast, there were many fishes and corals. Unfortunately, it was a bit strong wave and strong current during the time we were there. The villa provided airport pick up service on a fee (450,000 IDR), the driver was there to meet us, which was very convenient.
The communication with the owner Global villa during the booking process was always very friendly with fast response and clear message. All the staff we met in the villa are super friendly and service minded, especially Komong, who also speaks good English. Overall, it is a very nice villa for a luxury family vacation and is highly recommended.
Cocoa Maya was an ideal place to stay while in Candidasa. It's waterfront location is serene and postcard perfect. It's location also
gave us easy access to the shopping and the restaurants.
The staff at Cocoa Maya are exceptional. They catered to our every needs and went out of their way to make our stay special. They helped to make local arrangements and recommendations which further enhanced our stay. We travelled with 2 children under the age of 10 and Komang and her staff made extra efforts to meet their needs as well.
The accommodations at Cocoa Maya were spacious and clean. The rooms were beautifully decorated that we much enjoyed.
Cocoa Maya offered all that a 5 star resort could offer and more.
Villa Cocoa Maya was everything we wanted and more! It's situated in a stunning location, and is beautifully decorated and kept. Komang and all the staff were so lovely and accommodating, you honestly can't fault them, and the food is amazing too :)
There is also fantastic snorkelling just over by the islands, where you can see the most amazing fish, Nemo and Dory included :) There is a knowledgable fisherman called Derek who you can ask for on the beach, who again is so friendly telling you the best places to snorkel and see the fish. We were lucky enough to see dolphins and turtles, which was truly special.
I honestly can't stress how beautiful Villa Cocoa Maya, and Bali is... enjoy!
My husband and I together with our children and grandchildren (12 in all) spent 2 magnificent weeks at Villa Cocoa Maya. The villa is beautifully decorated, spacious and well appointed on a private beach. The staff that looked after us headed up by Kamong cared for us and cooked the most delicious meals. Our every need was met so making it the most relaxing holiday ever! They arranged transport for us - both vehicles and boats and our trips to the islands to snorkel were amazing where we saw incredible fish and coral. Thank you again Mailie for all your fantastic organization and we hope that we will be able to return one day soon.
We have visited Bali four times in the last 5 years and my only regret is that we didn't find this place sooner.. As we were celebrating my husbands 40th birthday I decided to book the villa as a 3 day birthday surprise! Surprise seems like such a weak word to describe the extravagant and beautifully presented villa that hosted our group of 8 people.
Komang and the staff greeted us with huge smiles and hugs and provided us with unmeasurable hospitality for the duration of our stay..
Komang booked a private traditional boat to take us to White Sands Beach where we snorkelled and sunbathed the day away, she also arranged a driver to take us ladies shopping while the boys stayed and enjoyed everything the villa had to offer.
For my husbands birthday Komang organised a huge chocolate cake and cooked the most succulent traditional Balinese buffet. She went above and beyond anything I could have imagined. (And even offers in house massage!)
If you are looking for a villa with attentive staff, beautiful rooms and one of the best beach views that Bali can offer then this is the place for you!
Hopefully one day soon we will be back
