Given the opportunity to escape for a few days (from kids, school routine etc), in need of some R&R, being a female travelling alone, I chose the Maya Ubud.
I was SO impressed. The service was excellent, the setting was fantastic (on a hilly forest - lots of wooden huts as villas, with the main building also wooden and no more than 3 levels). The Spa consisted of open wooden huts, totally private and overlooking the river - the background music was the sound of water crashing against the rocks, and the therapists were excellent.
The hotel is within walking distance from Ubud (there is also an hourly shuttle bus); a walk / cycle along the nearly rice fields is highly recommended, and of course exploring the charming town. The fitness centre / yoga studio is less than a year old, and the staff there are very helpful. There is also a tennis court, and the staff will gladly partner with you, or find a guest to do so.
Although there were many couples at the resort, there were also groups of friends, and a number of solos. I would return in a heartbeat given the chance - the perfect escape to experience some "me-time" along with staying active, and seeing the locality. Oh, the food was also very good; the River Cafe down by the spa serves great healthy (some organic) food, smoothies etc.
