Where to begin?

I suppose the beginning is always a good shout.

After a relatively brief plane ride over from KL (and an equally-long taxi journey from the airport, all thanks to quintessential Balinese traffic) we finally arrived at the Maya Ubud. We were tired, thirsty. sweaty, all manners of awful, and yet the moment we stepped out of the taxi, we instantly felt renewed.

Compared to the bustling cities we had journeyed from, the calm and serene atmosphere of the Maya beguiled us immediately, not to mention the overwhelmingly friendly and passionate service we received from the off. Due to our long journey, we thought it best to have a relaxing day absorbing the peace and tranquillity of the hotel, which naturally meant cocktails and snacks at the bar.

We visited the Maya in October/November 2019 and, whilst the menu has surely changed, the quality of food and drink at the Maya's bar was phenomenal, easily competing with the best we'd had on our holiday so far.

Speaking of a food experience so fantastic that it invites competition: the Balinese cooking class. We booked ourselves onto the cooking class with the Maya's chef Wayan on the morning of our first full day in Bali and the experience is not one I would have changed any part of for the world. We were led from the reception area to the most fantastical herb and spice garden I've ever seen by Indah, one of the hotel staff, where Wayan the chef proceeded to take us through the essentials of Balinese cooking. There was a lot of grinding spice pastes, fanning barbecue pits, dicing, slicing and the singing of eyebrows but the sheer volume and calibre of food that Wayan helped us produce was possibly the best we would have during the entirety of our holiday through South East Asia. There was so much food that we had some of our leftovers brought back to our room, and, when one of the portions had gone past its prime, the kitchen cooked us up a brand new dish. Indah and Wayan really made that morning something special, and walking away with gift bags full of recipes and spices was an extra incredibly-welcome bonus.

Now that I've mentioned exceptional food, I simply must talk about the surprise I planned for my partner during our stay at the Maya. In secret I had organised one of the Maya's Balinese Romance dinners, complete with a private gazebo, speciality courses, a trail of rose petals and accompanying music. The team at the Maya were more than game to help me with my plan and the evening was a wonderful success.

This, however, is where things took a poor personal turn. My partner came down with a rather persistent and debilitating case of 'Bali belly' that caused him great distress during our time at the Maya. Thanks to their on-call medical team we were able to get him some medicine, but for the remainder of our time in Ubud (including our trips out to Mount Batur, Ubud proper, the tours around the local temples and the Monkey Forest) my partner was seriously unwell. That said, the care and attention he received from the staff at the Maya was above and beyond what he had expected.

With my partner momentarily bed-ridden, I took the time to soak in as much of the Maya as I could, including the bar, the gym, the pool and as much of the local flavour as I could. To be honest, though, I did spend more time by the pool in the glorious sunshine with a good book. It's why you go on holiday, isn't it?

My partner's sudden turn for the worse notwithstanding, the Maya was easily one of the best hotel experiences of our holiday, if not of all our holidays put together. If you've made it this far into my long and winding retelling of our time there, well done, and honestly I don't know what more there is to say about the Maya. If you ever want to experience a tranquil, genuine, and gastronomically-unforgettable break from the hustle, bustle and fuss that Bali is known for, you owe it to book yourself a visit.

From the moment we arrived, the resort staff was friendly, gracious, helpful, attentive, and provided world class service. Most of the resort staff members remembered our names and would greet us every time we came to the dining area for meals.

The property was absolutely gorgeous - from the lobby and dining area, to the pool/lounge areas and resort grounds. We had 2 different rooms for our stay, both were wonderfully laid out and created a sense of meditative peace and reflective serenity.

We didn't have a whole lot of plans while there, but when we inquired about different activities, the front desk staff were quite helpful and provided good suggestions.

We came to the resort specifically for a special ceremony and everyone involved created such a beautiful setting; it was very special and meant a great deal to us. And then the meal afterwards...! It was a 5-course traditional Indonesian meal and dessert, so much food! We were beyond stuffed at the end, but made sure to try everything they served us.

The only negative was the amount of bugs around - eeks! This cannot be helped or avoided as we were in a very tropical, lush, and humid setting. The beauty of the resort surroundings and the incredible staff more than made up for it.

First time in Bali and Maya Ubud Resort made it a wonderful experience. We would definitely come back!

A superbly appointed resort just 5 minutes by shuttle to Ubud. Wonderful infinity pools, relaxing bars and restaurants and thoughtful staff. The food is great and inexpensive and the staff always make you feel very welcome. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Do visit the spa - the treatments are delightful. A truly relaxing place to spend some time.

My wife and 18 month daughter had such an amazing time at this resort. The staff were super friendly and made every effort to ensure that we had a memorable stay. The food was great, the pools were amazing and baby sitting service was a life saver! Thanks for everything and we’ll be back soon!

My husband and I were so excited to stay here for our 25th wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. We were given a refreshing cocktail and a cold towel on arrival and told our room had been upgraded to a corner suite 😊😊 which was fabulous and had everything you could need. The hotel is beautiful and spotlessly clean , the staff are wonderful, helpful, polite and friendly the pools are absolutely breathtaking and stunning views all around. We stayed on a bed & breakfast basis and there is plenty to choose from for breakfast, we did order a pizza from the pool menu which was super tasty 😊. The shuttle service into Ubud is a great touch as it’s quite a walk and again the staff are very helpful in giving directions ect if you don’t know where your going. We would ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND to anyone thinking of booking the Maya Ubud. Thankyou Maya Ubud you made our anniversary so special and we will be back

I am not sure about vaping, since we used normal cigarettes and we had to smoke in a designated area. And for the eating part, we took the launch and dinner outside the hotel, since we wanted to try authentic balinese food. We ordered in room one night and the food was OK. Hope it helps, have a great holiday 😁

You can order food to your villa. We stayed in a garden villa, which didn't have a dining table per se. There was a coffee table and sofa in the villa that we used for in room dining. The pools are open early, like maybe 7am or possibly earlier I think? Not sure how late they allow swimming but it also wasn't heavily monitored while we were there.
