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
Excellent host. Special mention to Wayan who was very accommodating,friendly and helpful. Went all the way out to ensure guests comfort is taken care of. Superb facilities. Breakfast served was great. Will definitely be back @mayaloka villa!
It's nice and peaceful place. Service is very good. We enjoyed our time on here. Own swimmingpool is marvellous and water is good. Food is good and serve IS good. But little bit slowly. we want to come here again.
When we came staff received us warmly. You feel you are welcome to Villa. Villa was so beautiful and peaceful. The best part was own swimming pool! Room service work nicely and food was good. Thank you!
We chose Mayaloka villas for our first ever trip to Bali and felt it was a good choice. Located right near the restaurants of Seminyak yet tucked away down a smaller street to be removed from bustle.
The open air design of the villa with private pool lends itself to an experience that feels unique to Bali. The complimentary breakfasts are large and to a good standard.
Additionally, the villa staff strive to make your experience in Bali memorable. Ardana was particularly friendly and helpful at all times.
We chose to stay here for our honeymoon and are so glad we did!
Staff were very helpful, Villa was clean, location was nice - close enough to main part but not on the main road.
Villa itself was clean, well looked after and room was cleaned daily.
Highly recommend, our requests were promptly catered to, breakfast and room service were great and the staff were pleasant all round.
