I recently spent 2 weeks at Maya and I must sayit was the most relaxing, friendly and beautiful place to be. I went on my own and felt very safe and welcomed by all the very friendly staff.
I stayed in a Pool villa room which was very spacious, private and nicely decorated. I had a view over to lush green rice paddies.
The gardens of Maya are magnificent and there is a lovely "Nature walk" alongside the river which even has private "Resting Pavilions" where you can sit and read or meditate. Just watch out for sandflies in the evening - insect repellent is useful.
I did Yoga every morning, had wonderful breakfasts then often just lazed by the beautiful pools.
I must add special mention to the Spa at Maya which I went to most days (and sampled all the treatments on the menu). Each treatment was bliss. The rooms are open sided and perched over the river so all you can hear is the sound of the river flowing, birds and nature. It has to be the most exquisite spot for massages or facials that I have ever experienced. I higly recomend the massages and the frangipani bath. The therapist were all very good and consistent and just lovely.
I suggest going into town for meals (other than breakfast) as they are much cheaper and good quality in town. But it is a bit of a shock to go from the quiet realxation of Maya into the hustle and bustle of Ubud (which by Bali standards is very quiet!).
I'd also highly recomend the bicycle tours from Maya which are a great way to see the countryside and very informative with very friendly guides.
I'll definitely be going back as often as I can.
