We had a wonderful 7 night stay. 6 adults and three children which was a perfect size for our group. The pool was always in use which the kids loved. The team at Bali Realty (Apri) and also all the staff at the house was spectacular. Budhi our butler looked after us all and he was there to attend to all our needs. The driver included on the rate was well needed and we used him everyday. Canggu was a new area for us and it didn't disappoint. So many new cafes and places to hang out. We would definitely stay here again and recommend as well
Just left the Villa Maya after a wonderful six day stay. The villa is absolutely superb in every way. Spacious comfortable bedrooms, a lovely open lounge/dining area with a beautiful view out to the pool and garden. Loved lazing about the pool and being looked after by the sensational staff.
The villa manager Apriardi was most welcoming, friendly and obliging in everyway to make sure our stay was perfect. Budi our butler looked after us everyday and we looked forward to our daily conversations (and lessons in balinese). He was so friendly, helpful and obliging. Our chef Nyoman cooked us some wonderful indonesian dinners and was always happy and our other butler Wayan looked after us in the evening.
Can't recommend the villa highly enough? Such a relaxing stay.
Villa Maya is a delightful villa tucked away in among the rice fields of Canggu with its sister villa, Villa Waha adjoining the property along with other neighbouring villas. The villa is located within walking distance to the Bali Equestrian Centre, the Canggu Club and many top name café’s and restaurants. Slightly further afield is the Finns Beach Club and multitude of restaurants, shops and cafes in Echo Beach. The closest areas of Seminyak can be a 15 minute car ride away with the further areas of Seminyak taking up to an hour to get to because of the heavy traffic conditions that now prevail in these heavily populated tourist areas.
The villa is staffed by some great guys – Apriadi the Manager, Nyoman the great chef, Budhi and Wayan the butlers and a keen gardener/pool boy who kept the grounds in spotless condition, not to mention some great security staff at night.
A special thank you to Apriadi, who went over and beyond his call of duty in staying back at the villa until a ridiculously late hour of 2am for our arrival due to plane delays. This was appreciated so much to be greeted at that hour by his smiling face to a group of exhausted and weary travellers. All the staff made our stay effortless and comfortable and kept the place working in tip top condition.
The property and amenities are all as depicted in the pictures online, with the property itself being quite new.
Due to the location of the villa, it is advised you arrange a car and driver which we did have to take us wherever we wanted. This is an invaluable service and one well used during our stay.
The only “complaint” we have for the villa is that the wifi is hopelessly inadequate. At the best of times it worked very slowly and very intermittently at a level that was unserviceable for any usage. At the worse of times it didn’t work at all which was more often the case than not. As a business owner who needed reliable fast broadband (as advertised), it unfortunately was insufficient for my needs and required my visiting local cafes for faster and more reliable coverage to be able to deal with running a business remotely.
In all, Villa Maya was a great place to stay and would be recommended to friends and family alike for future visits.
We had an excellent stay at The Villa Maya! We were a group of 3 families with 4 kids and the size was just right. Everything is as you see in the photos. Pool was decent sized and the kids had a great time in it although it is a bit deep for younger ones. The decor was modern and tasteful and has a good blend of Balinese local style with contemporary art. The bedrooms were good sized with comfortable beds. Bathrooms were also very nice where two of the bathrooms come with a large bath to soak in. All around the villa is very clean and appliances and furniture are new.
The staff at the villa is amazing! Apri and his team will take care of you from start to finish. There is a butler standing by in the villa most of the day and can help you with anything, even going out to buy groceries and Starbucks for us! Apri helped arrange transportation and restaurant bookings so it was no hassle at all. The chef was very skilled as well, the breakfast is delicious and we had ordered dinner in the villa one night and he cooked up some nice local dishes. We also had a very friendly driver who were with us most of the day and didn't even mind coming to pick us up at early at 6am for our round of golf!
Location is great and is minutes from Finn's Beach Club which is a new hip hangout and Canggu Club which has a nice water park and kids club. It was also easy to get into Seminyak for the nice bars and restaurants.
The only improvement points to note are the water heater and the water pressure. The shower was not strong enough in one of the bathrooms and the hot water only trickles out of the tap and if you try to set it to warm water the heater somehow shuts off and you only have cold water. We resorted to taking baths instead of showers as such. Apri really tried to help with the problem but seems it is due to the heater hardware so may need replacement. And with everywhere in Bali there will be mosquitoes but they have plenty of bug spray in the villa for you to use.
Overall it was an excellent experience and I would definitely recommend this villa if you are traveling as 2-3 families. I usually don't stay at the same place when I travel but really tempted to stay here again next time I visit Bali! Thanks Apri and team for a great stay!
OMG! This villa is a stunning example of what luxury, privacy and fun in life is just around the corner. From stylish decor, open living space and enjoyable indoor and outdoor living to friendly and reliable service from staff and management. A perfect location away from major traffic but a stones through away from massage, food, shopping and entertainment. Beautiful rice fields with a calming feeling at your door step and space to entertain friends and family for babi guling.
Virtually anything we needed help with was fulfilled. I recommend this accomodation to all ages. So much happiness that anything not expected was nothing to worry about.
What a beautiful place to stay!
We had the most amazing holiday at The Maya.
We were wowed from the moment we walked in at the beauty of this 2 storey villa. Such lovely contemporary Balinese architecture and styling.
Light, bright and open living spaces perfect for a large group or families staying together.
We stayed with another family and there was ample room for everyone. Spacious bedrooms, super comfy beds and all with stunning ensuites. The view of the rice paddy from our room made us feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of busy Seminyak.
I especially loved the main living area that openly flows out into the pool and garden but can be closed up at night.
The service level of the staff was superb! There's nothing better than waking up each morning with someone pouring your morning cup of tea, just how you like it, as soon as you sit down at the table. Or bringing you an icy cold drink whilst lying by the pool.
The kids loved interacting with the friendly staff, especially watching the chef make their pancakes and scrambled eggs. Having a driver each day was fantastic to head into Seminyak for shopping and dinner.
The location is tucked away and fantastic for a peaceful, relaxing holiday - but is only 5 mins by car/Scooter to surf at Berawa or 10 mins to Echo Beach. There are fantastic Cafés within walking distance.
The kids spent the whole holiday in the pool, which is a great size for groups and long enough to swim a few laps. They also loved how close we were to the Canguu Club/ Splash Waterpark - we spent a few days there and the whole family had a ball.
I would highly recommend this Villa for your next Bali holiday. We are looking forward to going back!
