This was my second stay at the Maya and it was just as wonderful as the first if not more. This visit was a special one to celebrate my 50th (to avoid a party at home!) with my family and friends as well as spending our first Christmas overseas.
Having a leisurely breakfast on my birthday, I suddenly hear people singing "happy birthday" and look up to see the staff walking in singing and holding a cake lit with candles coming towards me. I assumed it was my friends who arranged this, but the reception staff had noted on check-in that my birthday was the following day and arranged it themselves. On returning to my room, a bouquet of flowers from the resort was there to greet me. I felt very humbled by this.
The staff (all levels and in all areas) are friendly, helpful and always accommodating. We enjoyed talking to them and learning about their culture and recommendations where to visit around the Ubud area.
We loved cocktail hour and talking to the bar staff who always made us feel very special (especially towards my dad (his first time overseas) and his wife first time in Bali).
The food at the Maya is spectacular and the Christmas Eve feast, OMG, was unbelievable!
I loved the early morning Yoga sessions, a great way to start the day, especially with the ever smiling instructors.
The serenity of the surroundings of the Maya add to the stay.
I'll be back for sure!
