Maya Ubud Resort & Spa

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 June 2014

WOW, this is simply decadent, private plunge pool villa with outdoor shower in a jungle setting above the river below. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Food is very good from breakfast buffet to lunch at the River Cafe and dinner in one if the restaurants. If your on a budget don't even think about it, dinner will cost you over $150 in the restaurant and $50 as a basic at River Cafe.

They have a shuttle bus all day into Ubud town, but it is not that far to walk. They charge $5 for their vehicle to pick you up from town if your outside the shuttle bus times.

If we were to return to Ubud I think we'd treat ourselves again.

Late last year my mum and I decided we needed a holiday and Bali seemed like the best place to visit, we were right.
As this was our first place ever overseas we didn't want it to be spoiled by staying in a cheaply run down hotel so we decided we were going to go full out and stay somewhere beautiful. We stayed in bali for 7 nights and 8 days staying at the Maya Ubud resort and spa the entire time.
Our flight from Australia to Denpasar was from 11:00 am to 4:30 pm.
As soon as we stepped off of the plane a waft of incense, frangipani's and humidity hit our faces. It is a big weather shock and we already felt run down by the time we collected our luggage we also felt a bit sick tired and hungry so we just wanted to get to the resort as quickly as possible.
It was around 6:30 by the time we got to the resort and I should tell you we couldn't have been happier. The bustling sound of the city and motorbikes was completely gone and the sound of waterfalls and exotic birds took its place. The sunset passing through the trees as we rolled up to the lobby was wonderful and the clouds had cleared up to reveal clear blue skies. We were welcomed with ice cold fruity drinks and ice cold towels which was perfect seeing as we felt a bit sick. We stayed in a Superior Garden villa and it was beautiful. We were glad we didn't get a pool villa as some of the other families there said it attracted mosquitos. The resort has two pools which are both beautiful and clean but we spent more time at the pool next to the restaurant only because it was closer. Both pools are open from 6 am to 8 pm which is more than enough time. Surprisingly we didn't see any mosquitos at the resort which was wonderful and meant we could relax and I think that's because the resort fumigated the place so the people staying their didn't get sick from the bugs. They only did it one afternoon when we were there, it looked like smoke wafting through the resort but it was while everyone was out in town. The food is a little pricey but there meal portions are huge so don't worry you won't be hungry afterwards. The head chef is also an Australian woman who cooks everything to perfection, Indonesian food and Australian food. We found that room service was great and we used it a lot before we went out shopping cause we didn't want to eat too much out of the resort in case we got sick. You can order large pizzas and fancy big burgers and other stuff, it's great! The free shuttle bus every hour was great! It takes you to the start of monkey forest road and it's about a kilometers walk to the actual monkey forest temple were you feed the monkeys and take pictures (do it in the afternoon for great pictures). We didn't mind the kilometer walk as there were really good shops along the way, it can get quite hot walking along it but don't worry the shops sell 1.5 litre bottles of cold water for 40 cents each which was great.
Overall our stay at the maya couldn't have been better and we felt extremely safe and welcomed 24/7 there. The staff were beyond helpful and it was a pleasure to talk to them.
We went at the end of September/beginning of October last year and it was the best time to visit.
I have really missed Ubud and if I'm ever in bali again I will surely visit the maya resort and spa again even if it's just for another massage.

We're in love for the first sight with this resort.
It's a huge resort with very-well maintained garden. Here are some good points about Maya:
Great location, just 5 minutes from Ubud town.
Stunning views.
Serene and tranquillity surrounding.
Daily free afternoon tea time with snacks.
2 swimming pools locations, and they're all awesome.
I tried beginner yoga class and that was so nice and relaxing.
Countryside cycling was also fun! Friendly and knowledgeable instructor. Due to their busy schedule, make sure to book early so your arrangement will suits your time. Perfect to do around 7am or 4pm so you wont get burnt by the sunray. We booked just one day before and got activity started at 9 am, finish around 12.30pm...and yes it's HOT.

The bad thing, our room was disappointing.
We booked garden villa and requested rice fields view.
The fact is, the villa ground is about 1,5 meter below the rice fields (I have to lift my head to look up) we couldn't really get the view. There's significant different between pictures on their website and what I saw on the spot.
They also blocked it with some bush. I know that's for privacy sake, but it's worsening the view.

The bellboy said, he experienced some guests also complained about that. He suggested us to move to another villa (808), the only one with the best view of rice fileds. Unfortunately that room was already occupied just before us, by guests who unsatisfied with their previous room just like we were.
The receptionist who handled this matter seemed unfriendly and lack of professionalism. It's too bad, while the others staff we met mostly friendly and nice.
He consisted that our room was the best option for what we're looking for. He didn't even bother to offer us another good viewpoint of their villas.
We then asked him to have a sneak for another villas with hill view (his respond was annoying, flat expression, no smile at all!)
Fortunately we found one. It has beautiful scenery, and finally put us back in a good holiday mood.
About the room, it is spacious with traditional touch, but the décor is not special. The bathtub is lovely though.

Maya is a great place to sit back and relax. If you consider to stay here, make sure your room is in the perfect location.

Room Tip: If you want to enjoy rice field from villa garden, better request room 808 or second floor superior...

Considering a stay at Maya? You won't regret it. Outstanding resort with incredible attention to detail. Staff are faultless. Rooms and surrounds are also perfect. Daily activities are carefully designed to ensure you feel a sense of enlightenment and balance. Try the early yoga sessions and cycling.

At first glance, the Maya is a beautiful hotel with well-appointed rooms. Once you delve further into the property, literally into the gorge, whether swimming at the lower level pool, eating at the poolside restaurant, or luxuriating in the spa, you get a sense of the wildly majestic landscape. I treated myself to a massage and tub soak and have to say that soaking in an outdoor, private, fragrant tub, filled with flower petals while ensconced in the sounds and sights of a jungle gorge with the river just below, was one if life's sublime moments. An indelible sensory memory. If you visit the Maya, give yourself that treat.

I spent 4 nights in a plunge pull villa at the Maya Ubud during my honeymoon in Bali and I have to say when it comes to luxury in tropical Bali this place has got it all. Located 5-10 minutes drive from the hectic charms of Ubud Town, the Maya is an oasis of tranquility nested in a jungle covered gorge . The hotel runs hourly shuttles to and from town, so at the same time you never feel cut out from the real world.

The villa was delightful, private , opulent and just excellent. The plunge pool such and incredible relief from the hot Bali sun.

The rest of the hotel amenities are also amazing: two breathtaking infinity pools nested in the jungle, great breakfast buffets, free tea time, free activities including meditation, an incredible yoga and fitness centre and... And the SPA! The Spa might not be a bargain, but the treatments, the staff and it's decadent location by the river banks are an experience you will not forget. We indulged in the two hours oxygen rejuvenating treatment and I have to say: we were rushing to take new Facebook
Profile pictures at the end of it!

The staff at the Maya is beyond professional, friendly and helpful. What else? I could go on for a while. This place might not be your cheapest option in the area but if is luxury and pampering after a day of soaking in the delights of Ubud that you are looking for- then you will find your El Dorado here.

This resort blew our minds!!!
This was our first trip to Bali and what a first impression. It looked fantastic online but in reality is was even better. The setting was heaven on earth and from the movie we arrived we felt welcomed and our stress slipped away. The riverside Cafe was outstanding and extremely reasonable for the quality of food delivers. Both pools were gorgeous and I have never experienced such attentive service in any hotel/resort.
We choose to particpate in some of the free activities the resort offer and they were wonderful. The yoga for beginners class each morning was the ultimate great start to the day with knowledgeable instructs who catered for varying skill levels. The song was absolutely serene. Our nature walk with Meta was informative and we entertaining. The staff at Maya delivered the highest quality of customer service you could ask for.
And...The free daily breakfast was a foodies delight, with an extensive array of tropical fruit, savory and sweet options, delightful fresh juices and pastries.
The villa was soaps and well appointed worth a bed and linen to send we even the worst of sleepers into a deep blissful sleep. Each morning we awoke refreshed and delighted by our garden view
We can not recommend Maya Ubud Resort highly enough. This is a truly luxurious accommodation well deserving of its 4+ stars. We will definitely be back. Thank you all at Maya for making our stay so fantastic.
