On Bali’s southern coast, the Maya Loka is a totally private enclave with just 13 thatch-roofed villas. The secluded complex fuses modern details, including private swimming pools, with design that blends in with the surrounding tropical landscape, thanks to open floor plans, a restaurant that overlooks green rice paddies, and paths made of river stones. Close to lively Seminyak but just far enough to feel apart, the property attracts a diverse crowd that includes surfers, an international set drawn here by volcanoes and white sand beaches, and expats from around the globe who never quite got around to going home.
Bed and Bath
Each of the villas feels like a getaway unto itself, with enormous carved wood doors (secured with antique iron padlocks) that open onto soaring thatch-roofed living spaces and one or two bedrooms. The secluded plunge pools come with large terraces and chunky daybeds. The indoor-outdoor bathrooms have rain showers and huge rose petal–filled tubs. All villas offer standard conveniences such as WiFi, satellite television (plus a daily newspaper) and air conditioning.
In the evening the restaurant turns out Indonesian specialties such as gado-gado (vegetable salad with peanut sauce) and nasi goreng (prawns and egg flavored with tamarind). For those who prefer not to venture far, there are in-room spa treatments (think coconut and chocolate scrubs, aromatherapy and acupressure massages). And Seminyak has lots of European-style shopping and restaurant options. Or the staff can arrange a car to the town of Ubud, around an hour’s drive north, which is a popular wellness and yoga destination. But there’s no real need to leave the property; the focus here is on relaxation, and it doesn’t take long to totally — and blissfully — disconnect.
In the Area
Don’t miss the sacred monkeys and the Balinese tribal fire dance rites at the nearby cliffside Uluwatu temple. No trip to Bali is complete without an afternoon in the village of Ubud, about an hour away. You’ll find boutiques and painters’ studios, as well as locally made handicrafts and unique gifts at the Pasar Seni market. The resort offers wonderful dining options, but if you’re headed off-site, try one of these: Sarong is elegant and serves salmon betel leaf with shrimp and coriander; Sardine dishes up fresh seafood and organic vegetables from an on-site farm; and antiques shop–cum–bookstore Biku serves a peaceful high tea. The beachfront Ku De Ta in Seminyak is a happening spot to sip a lychee cocktail as the sun sets.
How to Get There
We had the best time in our 1 bedroom pool villa. From beginning to end the staff was amazingly friendly and helped us in any way possible. The airport pick up worked perfectly, daily breakfast was always on time and delicious, drop off at Seminyak square was easy too and when we needed to go to a doctor they gave us a lift and waited in front of the doctors until we were ready to go. The room service does not have a specific time, they literally know who is leaving when and clean up your room in the mean time which is amazing. You get 4 bottles of water per day (for the 2 of us) and every night they spray the rooms and put on coils to keep mosquitos away.
We ordered food a few times as well and the spring rolls were great, as well as the pizza!
Around the villas are heaps of restaurant and bars, little shop and massage places. The beach is also just a 10 minute walk away. We loved spending sun sets there.
We will definitely come back. We loved our time here and can just recommend it to anyone.
Beautiful accomodation with helpful staff that was the highlight of our stay in Bali. Loved the facilities and its excellent location which is highly accessible to local drinking spots. Would definitely come back again again!
The villa is fabulous and the staff are nice and welcoming. The environment around the villa is nice and peaceful, good for relaxing. A great experience for us to have our floating breakfast in the pool!
The people that work there went above and beyond to make sure we where comfortable, the pool and bed room are both amazing, the location is also convenient. The only thing i thing they could improve is the breakfast that they offer, that and the toilet is in kind of a open bathroom and would be nice in a separate room. Besides that, a great place that i can fully recommend.
Everything is amazing. The villa is gorgeous, the pool is amazing, it's clean the room service is good, the staff - more than amazing. The nearest beach is 10 minutes walk away. You will not regret spending your holiday there.
