Maya Ubud Resort is located in the heart of Indonesia’s most exotic and popular island, Bali. This splendid secluded resort is bordered by the dramatic Petanu River Valley in the east and the rice fields of Peliatan in the west. Maya Ubud Resort & Spa is a complex of villas situated in the wild jungle surrounded by 10 acres of tropical gardens and spread out along a plateau high above two rapidly running rivers. The complex consists of a main hotel with over 150 rooms, as well as various villas. The rooms of the resort are stylishly furnished in tropical design and a predominant Indonesian traditional décor.
The resort was designed by award winning architect, Budiman Hendropurnomo of Denton Corker Marshall. The setting was inspired by traditional Balinese lore of orienting villages and the villas are positioned so that it creates a village like an axis that follows the contours of the land. The unique character of the interior was built out of modern natural materials and old cart wheels have been fashioned into mirror frames, while traditional fish traps and baskets were handcrafted into lamp shades. “Indonesian heritage is represented in the eclectic collection of antiques in the open plan lobby, the restaurants and villas. Modern Balinese style is reflected in the architecture with the use of thatched roofs, blending the buildings into the surrounding environment”.
Along the bank river is The Spa, with both double and single pavilions. Treatments that refresh the body and soul and reflexology sessions are just a few of the services offered by this wonderful spa. Other recreational facilities include two swimming pools, a tennis court, a yoga pavilion and a gym. Activities include nearby village trekking, nature excursions and mountain biking.
