My boyfriend and I booked 4 days here as part of Bali trip and oh my god I wish we didn't have to leave!! This place is utterly gorgeous!! We arrived quite late in the night to the most warm welcome that the balinese are so well known for with a speedy check in and a yummy welcome drink. We stayed in a superior room that looked out over the rice terraces - amazing! The room was one of the best hotel rooms I have ever stayed in - super comfy bed with a pillow menu, so spacious and even the bath had a menu that you could arrange for the hotel to prepare for you! The hotel grounds are out of this world. The two hotel pools were stunning with lovely touches like towels and some water on arrival. My favourite pool was the one at the Spa - you can overlook the river going by and it has jacuzzis you can use to chill with your drinks. The staff are fantastic and are an absolute credit to the hotel. I have never felt more welcomed or looked after by a hotel on such a personal level. A special thank you to Ayu Bintari who was so lovely to us. The breakfast here is brilliant - so many choices and definitely our favourite meal. We ate at the restaurant each night too as they had so many yummy cocktails to chose from and the food was delicious. It definitely a little on the pricy side dining here so maybe something to consider. We booked a 2 hour spa treatment and hands down the best massage I have ever had. The spa is so beautiful. When having your treatment, you can listen to the river going by. Very relaxing. Our treatment ended with a herbal bath, that was filled with real flowers, complimented by fruit and a refreshing drink. It was so amazing and a moment I won't forget as my boyfriend proposed to me here :) A special place and experience we won't ever forget. Thank you Maya Ubud for making our stay so unforgettable. I would absolutely love to come back!! Read less

We went here for our honeymoon and stayed for 5 nights. As the title says, this place is simply amazing. Location is wonderful and filled with all kinds of tropical accents. Staff is 10+. Helping with every little thing and smiling all the time. Made us feel safe & welcomed. Breakfast is superb. One of the best we've had while travelling Indonesia. If you decide to walk to the city centre, which is likely 10 mins away form the resort you'll need to walk on a small & dark alley at night time which although doesn't make you feel that safe - we have no problems what so ever. Just need to watch our for incoming cars & scooters as ther isn't any kind of actual sidewalk :) If you decide to spend the entire day in the Resort, look no more. There's basically everything here from good food to amazing spas, 2 big infinity pools and a lot of places in which you could relax, take amazing photos & everything. Highly recommend this place if you want to have a super relaxed vacation. Read less

My husband and I travelled to Bali for the first time this year and we picked Ubud Maya for the first 5 nights stay and then to move onto beach resort for the remainder of the holiday. We were blown away by the beautiful Maya, we stayed in a superior room and it was huge for us 2, the room was adequate and clean and the housekeeping service was very good. We absolutely loved our stay at the Maya, the hotel itself is stunning and the 2 pools are beautiful, i had a spa with the bath overlooking the river for 3 hours and it was the best spa experience i've had. All the staff at the maya are very friendly and they are genuinely nice people the service was superb. The buffet restaurant i found the food was ok, not blown away but the breakfast was very good, the other restaurants alcarte food was great. We used the shuttle bus to go to Ubud a couple of times whilst there and really easy to catch and it was a bonus. Ubud town is very busy but plenty of places to eat and drink. Husband had his birthday whilst we were there and some lovely flowers and a cake were there in the room when we came in from our day. We had a great time, there was small details that made this hotel one of the best we have stayed in and after our transfer out to the remainder hotel for the holiday we wish we'd stayed at the Maya for much longer. I loved the small touches around the pool with the baskets of towels and no need to worry about fresh towels they were around all the time. the hotel trek was great we had a lovely time walking around, we organised a day out with a driver organised by reception and we got to see the North Bali, volcanoes, rice fields, temples, waterfalls just stunning. We had a fantastic time and would return if we came back to Bali. Drinks and food are pricey compared to town but were within our budget and the quality was good. The ONLY negative thing about the hotel is the lack of sunbeds there is no-where near enough and we had a room and not a villa with a pool and sometimes found it hard to get a sunbed Read less

Treated myself to the spa experience for my birthday last October. I did not book a room with the hotel, so only came in as a day guest to the spa. The staff at the lobby pointed me out to walk to the back of the resort and my breath was immediately taken away by the stunning view. You need to go down an elevator and a set of stairs to reach the spa but once you're there, it's very tranquil and beautiful. The masseuse will ask for your preferences - the fragrance of the oil, the pressure strength of the massage, any areas to be avoided, etc. The massage room comes with a shower room and a bath overlooking the river gorge. The body massage itself was great and very soothing, the 90 minutes passed by too quickly. I booked my massage via Traveloka so it also comes with access to the swimming pool and a 15% discount voucher for meals ordered there. I changed into my swimsuit and enjoyed a relaxing swim (one corner of the pool even have a jacuzzi/jet stream!) Very very recommended even if you're not a guest of the hotel! Read less

As it was my husband's birthday we booked the riverside spa which was 3 hours of bliss, the best spa treatment we have ever had. The staff made my husband a cake, and left flowers in our room which was a really lovely thing to do. We stayed in a superior garden villa that was amazing, and cleaned to a high standard. All the staff were so friendly and helpful, and made us feel so welcome. Breakfast included so many choices, and we had the buffet in the evening whcih was excellent, sitting outside watching the entertainment. Can't recommend this resort enough. Will definitely return Read less
