Firstly before I say anything about this villa, I would like to say what an absolute pleasure it was to listen to the beautiful villa staff say how much they enjoyed their jobs and working for the owner as she is always very fair and very kind to them. Equally, the owner Mary, is the most easiest, accommodating and helpful person I have ever dealt with when booking a villa in Seminyak and her respect for her villa staff (inclusive of Managers, Butlers, Security, Drivers, Gardeners etc) I believe is a testament as to why a stay at Villa Maju (or any of the Juragan villa group) is a must - just full of love and staff that are such a committed beautiful and happy team.
Villa Maju, is truly one of the best villas I have ever had the pleasure of staying in and I have stayed in some gorgeous villas on previous visits.
As you enter in through the entrance doorway, your breath is almost taken away by the exquisite gardens and grounds of lush greenery, gorgeous coloured flowering trees, water features, ponds and statues surrounding the very decent sized stunning pool and bale. I lost count of how many times I said “Wow”!.
Plus there is the cutest little turtle and lots of colourful fish who pop up occasionally to say hello from the pond that runs from the entrance to the main bedroom.
And then, if you don’t think it can get any better you enter the master suite which is situated at one end of the property (closest to the entrance) with the most luxurious outdoor/indoor bathroom (2 showers) with its own pond and water feature. The other 2 bedrooms being at the other end of the property, are separated by a beautiful pond and huge Buddha, are equally as lovely with a smaller version indoor /outdoor bathroom (2 showers) with their own relaxing little courtyard and relaxation chair. All rooms are air conditioned and have ceiling fans too. You will find small bottles of filtered water in your bathroom which are replenished daily and a larger filtered water bottle in the room off the kitchen. The bedrooms have plenty of cupboards, drawers, hanging space and more importantly good strong hangers! Each room also has its own safe for you to program your personal code into. The bed is extremely comfortable (is netted at night) and the pillows aplenty and the linen is lovely. The beds are Kings, however in the smaller rooms ( if you can call them smaller rooms, as they are quite large), the beds are able to be converted into king singles. There are fresh towels if you require them and also separate pool towels too.
The hub of the property is the kitchen/lounge and dining area (with its own separate teppanyaki cooktop and bar area) and has everything you would need. The Butlers who look after your every need, will do as much as you will let them do and nothing is too much trouble for them. They are always there to greet you with a warm smile, and provide assistance. Everything from preparing you a yummy breakfast, (you place your order the night before), to booking restaurants, massages, taxis, telling you the best places for good coffee, good shopping etc..
The photos that you see of this villa is how it is, the attention to detail in styling is a credit to the owner of the villa, however when you see this villa first hand it is even better than the photos.
The location is great, I would suggest that you do a quick google of the area and you will learn quickly that it is a short distance to everything. The villa is a 2 minute walk down a gang (lane way). It is approximately a 5 minute walk to Eat Street (some of the best restaurants in Seminyak) and maybe a 10-15 minute easy walk down to the beach. The best supermarket is Bintang (huge) which is probably a 15 minute walk, or if you want something closer there is Cocos in Eat Street, its smaller but is also good.
If you haven’t guessed already, this is my favourite villa ever, and it was the venue for a reunion of some friends that hadn’t seen each other for 25 years plus - we all didn’t want to leave.
Blessings to all my beautiful Villa angels, Ketut, Kadek, Agus, Wayan, the ever smiling gardener, and our very patient security guards and I apologise if I have missed someone off this list, you were all wonderful and made are our stay magical xxxxx
I will look forward to my next visit at Villa Maju, so that I can once again experience the joy of the villa, and partake in the Teppanyaki experience ( we just ran out of time this time around) much love x
My two adult daughters and myself have just had 5 nights at Villa Maju, we couldn't believe how beautiful and spacious this villa is , the wonderful staff made us feeling so welcome and spoilt?..I was even presented with a birthday cake this villa is in a fantastic location , very close to all the great restaurants and massage salons, it was always easy to get a taxi at the end of the lane. The rooms were very comfortable and we loved the whole setting with the outdoor showers. The booking process with Mary was very easy, she even gave us a complimentary in house massage which was much appreciated.
I cannot recommend this villa enough, many thanks to Ketut and Agus for looking after us so well, nothing was too much trouble for them, thanks also to Madi the security guard , he was always so happy even after a long night shift, Deddi our driver, thanks for picking us up when we couldn't get a taxi from Canggu. Also lovely to meet Wayan as well.
We can't wait to return to Bali.
We stayed at Villa Maju for Christmas 2017 and had the best time! We stayed here with another couple and between us we had three young children. The Villa was exceptionally clean, very well looked after and looked just like the photos! Nothing was too much trouble for the incredible staff, we had Ketut and Kedak look after us mostly for our days and we just fell in love with them - such beautiful people who couldn't do enough for us. We had the Tepanyaki one night which is an absolute must! The food was outstanding and the chef was so lovely and enjoyed a chat with us. The location was fantastic, close to lovely restaurants, spas and shopping. Our first overseas Christmas was a beauty! x
We recently stayed for 4 nights in Villa Maju, and gee what a treat!!!
The staff was what made it , of and course the villa, it was just a Oasis , coming into the villa we were greeted with the resident turtle " Tinny" , who was the cutest thing!!
We have stayed in another one of Mary's villas ( Villa Jabali ) and were not disappointed with Maju. We had a chef cook a Tepinyaki one night which was absolutely delicious , siting watching him cook with a glass of wine and some lovely music, it was a very relaxing night!!
The stand out is the outdoors showers, I just love them, the room was clean and the bed very comfortable. Ketut even took us shopping one day and Kadek kindly ironed our going home clothes, nothing was too much trouble. Great location , great in villa massages....we WILL be back xx
Came to villa maju on the 7th june and stayed for 9 nights.
6 adults and 1 child , best time ever , Staff could not do enough for us.
Location perfect and quiet. Any thing we wanted to do , staff would organise .
It was paradise exactly like the photos show. O.M.G.
We have just returned home after staying in this wonderful villa. Villa Maju is breathtaking from the moment you are welcomed through the gate by the wonderful staff . Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff in the Villa. I could make mention of every aspect of this villa but they would all be the same EXCELLENT.!
Being able to walk to restaurants, shops and great spa places is a bonus , but did I mention the staff?!!! I can't wait to return.
We have just returned from our first time to Bali. We were recommended this Villa from a friend, THIS PLACE IS PARADISE !!!!!!!!!! The Villa is spectacular, HEAVEN.... The layout is amazing and works very well with 6 people staying. Bedrooms are great, aircon, fan and all bedrooms have an outside bathroom, 2 showers in each, 1 in the bush, it is glorious. Clean and everything you need to have a fantastic and relaxing holiday. The villa staff..... what more can I say, they are angels, genuine, helpful and such a blessing. Katut, Kadek, Welan, and Supervisor Wayan.... you made our holiday so very special and from the bottom of all our hearts we say a MASSIVE Thank you!! We miss you already and hope one day to return to this beautiful paradise of a villa and we see you all again.....
