“Perfect way to escape!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

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.

Room Tip: The Villas look lovely, but being solo I chose to stay at the main part of the hotel.

We honeymooned at Maya and it was simply magical ... We stayed in a private deluxe villa with own pool which was beautiful, although it would have been better if we had river views. The resort is a little out of town but an hourly shuttle into Ubud takes 5 minutes. The spa is beautiful but expensive compared to cheaper spas in Ubud but well worth it. But you get exactly what you pay for with an amazing view of the river ... there are specialty themed dinners every night and cocktail hour is great! You really don't need to leave the resort ... the staff were super friendly and obliging ... the resort delivered us a beautiful and delicious honeymoon cake on arrival and we arrived home the next day to a beautiful bath full of roles and frangipani petals! This resort is 5 star all the way!!!! Bianca and Cam, Melbourne, Australia, April 2012

We went away from the great surf of seminyakh to find cooler grounds as it was so hot and humid by the sea.
We stayed at the duplex villa 503 which is wonderful, it has great views. We paid 780 dollar a night and stayed with 2 adults and 2 kids. They change the upstairs living room in a very cosy bedroom with a kind of day bed/four poster bed and a single bed.
The hotel is situated in a lovely setting and close to center ubud.
The food is indonesian themed and that didn't suit my family much but i loved to sample the authentic dishes.
My hubby though was very pleased with cleaness and Spa great- no kids allowed though

Room Tip: Some villas overlook rice paddies and would choose river view

We were amazed with the views this lovely resort offers. Garden Villa was very nice. Hotel's pool area isn't big, but still enough for us. Breakfast was really good. Staff was nice and professional in every way. Only minus thing were high prices at restaurant. We recommend staying in Maya and eating in Ubud center, were you can find many cheap and tasty places, just by taking a 50.000 rupiah taxi journey.

I absolutely love Maya Ubud. The minute you pull into the beautiful entry, you feel a sense of serenity. The staff are wonderful, the grounds are beautiful and the spa is the best in Ubud. I stayed in the pool villa, river side. Happy hour every night from 6 and great meals in the restaurant, make it hard to leave to explore Ubud.
The Spa itself is a must do, even if you are not staying. Make sure, you book in for a massage. The location is spectacular, and the massages are amazing.
Also worth spending some time at the lower pool, and river cafe. Stunning!
My only gripe - the wi if access is a hassle. You need to keep logging-in, as it kicks you off constantly.

My travel agent arranged for us to stay at the May Ubud and when we arrived there we where so impressed! This resort is so beautiful and peaceful. Although we took our kids and there where other small children there, it really is a resort for adults and honey mooners or even a picturesque wedding on the top deck above the tree tops!

It is so quiet there you can actually hear yourself think. It's a great place to go if you just want to escape the world, read a book by the pool, and just ''watch'' nature whisper to you. It really is a place for solitude. The Resort does have an ''Adults only'' section which is where the spa is and another pool down by the river. It is spectacular. Just hire a nanny @ $40,000IDR per hr.

The pool is really cool, it looks like you would just swim of the edge. You can hang over the edge of the pool and watch the deep valley below, hearing the river and watching the wildlife.

The grounds are impeccable. I absolutely loved sitting on the balcony for breakfast and lunch with the fans gently turning, the white hanging cloth's gently waving in the breeze and looking far down the jungle.

The food is really good and the cocktail bar make the best cocktails! It's not a cheap hotel but you do get your moneys worth. We had a deluxe pool villa, AMAZING! I could live there forever. My favourite was to shower night and day in the outdoor shower looking up through the palm trees at a blue sky in the morning or a twinkling starry night under a full moon, It is very private.

It's only a 5min drive into Ubud which is very nice. The Ubud market are much better than the Kuta markets. The resort is about 1hr 15min drive from Kuta, just over hr drive up to Mt Batur, 30min to the Safari Marine park.

This resort is definitely one worth to visit, you won't be disappointed all!

Room Tip: I would choose a room starting from 701 onwards, less walking to the main pool.

I was at the Maya Ubud for two nights and I really enjoyed my stay. In my opinion, the highlight is really the amazing pool, surrounded by lush forest, it's totally wonderful. Staff is really nice, smiling, helpful.. All you can expect from a 5-star... free wi-fi in the room, excellent service, etc. The shuttle to the village is really convenient also. We had a room in the main building and I was a little disappointed because my expectations were really high and I found the room was just "normal". When I saw the villas, I was jealous because they looked so much better... If you can afford it, I suggest you take a villa instead of a room. Food is very good (refering to breakfast and also the main restaurant + the other cafe by the pool, next to the spa), nothing to complain.The spa is very nice, treatment rooms overlooking the river, and the second pool there is even better than the main one. It's really a getaway, out of the reality, the setting is incredible. And the village of Ubud is really nice too so even if you don't spend a night there, you really have to spend at least a day.
