Maya Ubud Resort & Spa sits in splendid seclusion, about one hour’s drive from Bali’s international airport. The resort is bordered by the dramatic Petanu River valley and the villages of Bedulu and Pejeng to the east, and the verdant rice fields of Peliatan on the west. The 10-hectare surrounds feature a tranquil haven of tropical gardens, architect-designed thatched buildings, and 108 private pool villas and luxury guestrooms.
Nestled along the river bank is The Spa at Maya, with private single and double treatment pavilions overlooking lush rainforest of the valley embankment and swirling waters below. The spa offers exotic sensory journeys and revitalising treatments that refresh body and soul, such as Pevonia tropical rejuvenation skincare and wraps. There’s also a dedicated riverside deck for reflexology treatments. A menu of bath sensations can also be enjoyed in the privacy of your own villa or guestroom.
Dining options at Maya Ubud Resort & Spa include Maya Sari for all-day dining with river valley views, beginning with a bountiful breakfast buffet, followed by a-la-carte dishes for lunch and dinner. Asiatique offers regional flavours from Indonesia, Thailand, China, India and Japan, as well as an authentic Teppanyaki counter. The River Café serves up delicious pasta and pizzas, as well as healthy spa cuisine and snacks. Bar Bedulu is a breezy bar off the main lobby area, offering cool concoctions, exotic thirst quenchers and ice-cold brews, plus complimentary afternoon tea.
