- The privacy of the villas - why not arrange for a romantic dinner by the pool?
- Peace and quiet only a short distance from the heart of Seminyak
What To Know

- Villas are extremely quiet and private
A quiet sanctuary away from the hustle of nearby Seminyak, Maharaja is an intimate collection of just 10 private pool villas. This luxury haven is ideally located within a quick, complimentary shuttle transfer away from some of southern Bali’s most fashionable haunts, and yet, within your walled garden, you’ll feel blissfully removed from the action.
Designed by accomplished architects, Maharaja Villas pays homage to Balinese traditional while incorporating a light and clean-lined, modern aesthetic. The on-site Zahra Spa does not disappoint, with its comprehensive menu of therapies and a focus on awakening natural ingredients like ginger, lemongrass, galangal and essential oils. Be sure to dine at Kayumanis – you’ll be treated to pleasant views of the local rice fields.
How to Get There
If you are looking for peaceful, relaxing luxury just on the very outskirts of the hustle/ bustle of busy Seminyak/ Kuta ...then this is your place!!.
Absolutely stunning Villas , the bedroom/ bathrooms are massive .. ..and the plunge pool was sensational ... very very clean and just the perfect temperature too ( as got lots of sun).
Come day bed / flat screen T.V ( with cable channels) in sunroom / kitchenette .
Breakfast was delivered to our room daily and was very tasty with a HUGE selection to choose
from !!!. Villas are roughly 10-15 mins away from
Seminyak central , however a daily shuttle bus service that they provide runs 3 times per day and takes you to Seminyak/ Kuta area ( must book) ...... however tis not very $$ to get a taxi either way
A big warm thank you to Yoga , Putu and the rest of the team for a wonderful stay ❤️❤️❤️🙏🏻🙏🏻... we will 110% stay here again
We enjoyed our stay at the villas, the service is good and the staff are friendly and helpful
Good breakfast and afternoon tea served in the
Thanks to staff who made us very welcome during our stay in Bali
Only down side is it’s 10-15 mins in taxi to Seminyak
We arrived in Maharaja Villas at night in the dark. Next morning we were shocked that we were surrounded by four closed walls without any view. But we decided to make the best of it. However, once you are saying to each other that it feels like you are in prison, the holidays are over.
That evening I went to the receptionist and asked him for 10 hangers and if a greater villa with an open view was available. He answered that Maharaja was completely full. So, next day we booked the Oberoi Resort in Seminyak at the beach.
When we informed the receptionist that we would leave the next morning, he became nervous and informed us that there was a greater villa on another location. We told him that we still had only 4 hangers and that the booking in the Oberoi was a fact. Therefore, we asked him the refund of the remaining nights.
From that moment on the management of Maharaja started to ly. In a statement to our travel agency they declarered that 10 hangers were given directly. That is strange because when we left Maharaja Villas our suitcases were still unpacked at the floor. Also the manager stated that we had asked for a villa with ocean view. That is even more ridiculous because, even when we arrived, we knew that we were in the outskirt of Seminyak, far away from the sea.
We understand that a manager wants defend his business, but you have not to treat tourist like this by lying.
You can better avoid Maharaja when you don't want to stay beween 4 walls and because you can't trust the management.
What a great place to spend some time with your significant other! The villas are really lovely, well maintained pool and gardens, and the service is very thoughtful. The turn-down service includes mozzie eradication, which is a nice touch; as is the afternoon tea bought to your room and the way the staff wait til you are leaving to go somewhere and ask to service your room, so its always fresh when you return. We didn't mind choosing our breakfast the night before and tried just about every item on the menu. and loved having it brought to our villa each morning. We enjoyed all the dishes and ordered room service a few times as well. Note that this hotel has a 20% tax/service charge that is added at the end. On the first day I asked about non dairy options, but the staff member seemed confused by the concept of soy milk so I gathered dietary requirements aren't really catered for here (I probably should have emailed ahead) Some of the convenience stores stock a rice/bean milk which was really good. The villa also has 2 TV's with 2 movie channels which my partner was thankful for while I spent hours reading by the pool in the sun. The WIFI is excellent. The toiletries are great, slippers and robes are provided too.
We also thought the location was great. Many villas in this region are located at the end of a long driveway and once we knew the way into town it was easy to find our way back. We took a screen shot of the location from google maps to show the taxi driver when we ventured out so didn't have any problem with transport, other than getting ripped off on the first day. We used the shuttle service to Seminyak once, you have to pre-book hours ahead, it is only at certain times during the day and only one way. However a blue bird taxi is only AU$3 and far more convenient. We actually ended up mostly walking everywhere, 15 minutes from the restaurant strip at dinner time, 30-40 mins for shopping. Scratch (sports bar) is conveniently located over the road with great cocktails, food and a pool table.
There wasn't much that could have been improved during our stay....there were a few miscommunications lost in translation and we went over budget by underestimating the cost of food and drink. Our doorbell had a phantom and kept ringing so we took the battery out. Tried to explain this but then came back to find a new battery in it which was funny.
The only real inconvenience was our airport pickup not being there when we landed despite emailing our flight details through. We waited almost 2 hours to be picked up, which was blamed on traffic. But they were very apologetic when they finally picked us up. Turns out the manager was the one who came to get us so there must have been an issue somewhere along the line. It was also AU$3 for airport pickup, but AU$15 for drop off.
We plan to stay here again and other than the wait at the airport, we enjoyed every aspect of it. Thank you to all the staff at Maharaja Villas.
We stayed at Maharaja villas for 4 nights from 2nd June 2018.
During our stay my wife and I had a truly wonderful time. The manager, Yoga, along with Aris on reception and all his staff were of the highest standard. Dealing with any little issues we had immediately and always with a big smile.
The villa itself was immaculate and very private. The food was very good with great options for both breakfast and dinner.We had treatments in their spa and again they were of a very good standard.
We used the daily transfer to seminyak beach which again was great. Only it takes 15 minutes max, a taxi back (Blue Bird Group) was only 30k rupiah max.
The afternoon teas were also very tasty.
I would highly recommend this place, for us the only downfall were the roads outside being a little too busy for walking along especially at night...but taxis as mentioned before are cheap enough to get in to seminyak itself.
Thank you all for a wonderful stay Maharaja Villas!!!
