Between the Petanu River valley and lush rice fields of Peliatan sits Maya Ubud Resort & Spa, a luxurious tropical paradise that balances seclusion and convenience: it’s a mere one-hour drive from Bali’s international airport. Accommodations include guestrooms, garden villas, even duplex villas for larger groups or families — so no matter the size of your party, Maya Ubud has a place prepared for you to “unplug” for the duration. All rooms have individual air-conditioning, private baths and showers, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, minibars, and coffee and tea makers. Outside your room, a host of tempting activities are at hand. Swim in one of two pools; perfect your golf stroke on the putting green; play tennis, work out in the gym, try a yoga class…or explore your surroundings via bikes, or on foot, at your own pace.
Want to immerse yourself in Balinese culture? Just ask about traditional dance performances — some offered on site — or learning to paint from local artists, right in their studios. Hungry? Take a cooking class in Maya’s Spice Garden, where you’ll be shown five easy-to-prepare dishes, then enjoy lunch on your own creations! If you’re less adventurous, sample the pros’ work at one of several restaurants — Maya Sari for all-day dining, Asiatique for regional cuisines of Thailand, Japan, China, India, and Indonesia, or the River Café’s healthy spa cuisine, snacks, and pizza. Finally, for total healing and rejuvenation, try The Spa at Maya, with private treatment pavilions and a dedicated deck for reflexology. The ambience of Maya Ubud will refresh and restore you — and welcome you whenever you wish to return.
