Maya Ubud Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Peliatan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Just enjoyed three superb nights in this remarkable and wonderful hotel-resort. Quite breathtaking scenery surrounds this very subtle complex of architecturally interesting buildings which are very sophisticated but also sensitive to the local cultural style.

It is worth lingering in the restaurant where the food was inventive and uses super ingredients, well put together. We ate a la carte two nights and the food was excellent. The service in the main restaurant, like the hotel as a whole, is noticeably very friendly, attentive and genuinely caring. The staff clearly have a real pride in this hotel and seem to enjoy working here and enjoy making their guests happy.

Rooms are very simple, but thoughtfully desgined and decorated. Mattresses are very firm but I slept wonderfully.

The spa is *outstanding* and not to be missed. At the bottom of the estate and nestling above a white-water gorge and overlooking a tranquil infinity pool - one of two in the grounds - the spa treatment cabins have beautiful baths set against an open view of the gorge. Wonderful: do have the flower milk bath in your treatment package. You'll be so pleased you did. This is genuinely one of the world's great spa settings, but the treatments are also very good.

The high-up bar area is simple but impressive and redolent of both colonial grandeur and very sympathetic to the lovely view in front of you (accentuated by subtle and rather lovely lighting in the grounds). Cocktails and alcohol is pricey but a half-price 'happy hour' from 6pm-8pm was very welcome. The wine list, however, is well-judged and fairly-priced (as an expat living in Jakarta I can attest to the 400% import tax on liquor).

I would whole-heartedly recommend this hotel to anyone and pln to come myself again next month for a long-weekend to celebrate my birthday

Room Tip: We had two rooms on the second floor of the main block (which is a boon in monsoon-like rainy season...

This a beautiful place to enjoy the quiet, peaceful, rainforest part of Bali. The resort is extremely well staffed and I was treated like royalty. I enjoyed the free yoga classes each morning before an excellent breakfast. I could not fault this place at all. I would recommend booking a villa over a room but either way I'm sure you will enjoy your stay if you plan a holiday here.

Beautiful landscape, very very nice rooms! The Spa is worth trying, and it is not far from Ubud (by taxi or hotel shuttle).

Room Tip: Ask for a river view, watch out that some rooms are quite far from the lobby.

Stunning venue with first class service, the rooms are nice and big but were nothing extraordinary to me, I expected more for the rate we paid per night. Sadly ubud market is not as good from my visit back in 2010, great shuttle bus runs every hour by the hotel, best infinity pool I have ever seen and nice touches with the pool attendant bringing you towels cold water and refreshing cold face wipes. Breakfast is lovely in an open plan room with stunning views of the forest. Little sleepy think we were the youngest couple there ( 28 and 30yo).

Stayed in a delux pool villa which overlooks the valley, so peaceful , so private we did not what to leave the moment we arrived , the outside shower we used every day even in the rain & the resort grounds & walking paths are amazing , l doubt we will ever stay at or see another resort like maya in our travels , the staff are so friendly & helpful you what to do something for them & our breakfast chief was the most beautiful person he made us feel we were the only couple at the resort . Overall maya resort is a must see even if it is for only one night , your memories & photo's will stay with you for ever , the elevator tower which stands alone on the valley slop & takes you to the lower pool ( amazing ) , cafe & spa area . Thank you so much & please dont change a thing .

We were married at the Maya in June 2011 and absolutely loved it! What an amazing place! It is a beautiful location and the staff are very friendly and bent over backwards to accommodate every request we had - its the best service we've ever experienced (and we've stayed in many places all over the world). The food was outstanding; the staff are very polite, friendly and respectful; there were planned entertainment nights often (including traditional Balinese dancing, the kecak etc); the massages were to die for (chocolate body wrap highly recommended) and are in a beautiful setting; and the decor in rooms/reception/restaurant was quality and tasteful. The natural setting of this resort in a tropical rainforest was absolutely beautiful, and the immense gardens are all perfectly manicured. Its a very peaceful and tranquil place and I highly recommend it both as a wedding venue or a romantic getaway.

As a wedding venue we couldn't have asked for more. We are an Australian couple from Melbourne and decided to do something a bit different by having a traditional Balinese blessing ceremony in the afternoon, having photos taken in the beautiful gardens, and were then officially married in a romantic setting of candlelight over water (at the front entrance of the resort). We had the reception in the Maya Sari Mas restaurant which is beautifully appointed and hired a sound proof room to dance the night away. To top the night off we had our private pool and spa filled with rose petals and frangipanis, and the edge was lined with candles. It was amazing! What a sensational experience.

The only things we were a bit disappointed with was the wedding planner Oka from Bali Nirvana Weddings (didn't ensure the priest had bride's vows before ceremony, dressed too casually (jeans) for ceremony) and photographer Made (a few shots were out of focus, there wasn't enough direction, we missed out on family photos because he didn't meet with us beforehand to discuss what we wanted). But on a positive note Kath Townsend was amazing!

Overall we highly recommend the Maya as a wedding venue, and friends have said its the best wedding they've been to.

Room Tip: The private villas are beautiful.

We stayed at Maya Ubud from january 19-21 in the Duplex Villa. From the first we loved this resort. The reception staffs were very fast in helping us checked in, it was very smooth and no problem at all. Their smiles were so warm :) This resort is beyond the luxury!! The duplex villa is very beautiful, it has a big private swimming pool and jacuzzi. We were very surprised when we found TWO TVs and TWO minibars. Wow! The views are breathtaking. The foods are really, really delicious, but please note that foods at Maya were more expensive than most hotel in Ubud. But with the quality, why not? They were very worthy. Maya offered buffet breakfast, we can eat as much as we could. The grounds were so beautiful. You have to go here by yourself and you will know that Maya is the best in Ubud! Thank you Maya, we will definitely come back :) Novi and Komang

Room Tip: If you're in honeymoon, choose duplex villa!
