“Paradise within paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

An amazing place to stay in Gili Meno. Very friendly and helpful staff, they go above and beyond to make sure your stay is the best it can be. The food is amazing (reasonably priced) and is a perfect match for the picturesque sunsets that can be viewed directly from Mahamaya. We would like to thank Ricki and all of the staff for our short but enjoyable stay, we are definitely coming back! Poolside rooms are comfortable, water cooler in your room is a great bonus! The photos we saw prior to leaving New Zealand for our honeymoon don't do this gorgeous place any justice! This is THE place to stay on Gili Meno!!

The staff was incredibly friendly. The beach is nice and white, but with corals. The rooms were large and comfortable with an outdoorshower. The Hotel is ecofriendly which was highly appreciated. They are expanding with more rooms, larger pool and a spa. Much recommended to stay at gili M.

Setting: Quite, peaceful beach side resort. Lounging benches by the ocean. Dinner served near the surf. Wonderful rooms with A/C, large bath, comfortable bed.
Staff: All pleasant and helpful. Ready to make your stay the best it can be.
Food: Delicious. Need I say more?
Activities: Swimming in the ocean or fresh water pool, snorkeling (free equipment), ocean kayaking (again free), relaxing by the ocean (in the sun or shade).
If you want hustle and bustle, loud music, lots of people around - this is not the place to go.

Room Tip: Book early. A number of groups came by hoping for drop in accommodations and were turned away.

I would like to emphasize how friendly and great the staff at Mahamaya is. Every employee was incredibly friendly, helpful and made an effort to make sure we had the best stay possible.

We choose Mahamaya on Meno as part of our honeymoon as we wanted a beach view and a bit of luxury. We stayed in the Candy 2 Beach villa which was beautiful, not directly (or privately) on the beach but the island is so quiet there is very little foot traffic walking past. The views were gorgeous and inside it was incredibly spacious and clean. Lovely big high bed which was very comfy, modern simple furnishings. We really liked the eco policy and guidelines the hotel is trying to stick by. The owner David was very friendly and has trained the staff brilliantly as everyone there made such an effort to make sure we were looked after at every need but without being to in your face. There was a great laid back but efficient approach and you get a sense the staff are enjoying themselves which is nice to see. Meno is a quiet island but we loved the tranquillity.
Our meals at Mahamaya were fantastic - a simple menu but delicious and what a setting - dinner on the beach under the stars :)
Thanks again :)

Room Tip: I think its worth spending a bit more for the beach villa as the pool rooms didn't look as priva...

Ideal location and the staff are fantastic. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. They went above and beyond when I advised them I was planning a proposal. The perfect table, food, desert, fire show, everything and more.

This place is really a hidden paradise. The best place to go to for relax and gateway from the busy life. The foods are great, and especially the dinner on the beach is unforgettable. The staffs are awesome and friendly.

The dive shop "Divine Divers" is just 2 minutes walk from this place which has professional instructors as well. The best place to go to see turtles.

Highly recommended place to enjoy the holiday.
