“best place to stay in”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Worm welcome and a hot cup of coffee was waiting for us when we arrived.
This guest house (I would say A boutique hotel) feels like brand new, well designed and great location for skiers, hikers, travelers with family .
The perfect location, 15 min from Sion , on a mountain in the village of NAX , make this place perfect to relax, hike, and enjoy great food with the best view in Swiss.

Mountain view from any point any room , amazing sunsets!

We traveled with our 1.5 years old baby, they took care of everything we needed, always with smile. really makes you feel at home.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED , great facilities.

Room Tip: 8 different rooms , each made from different kind of wood- WOW

It's an original concept that deserves to be encouraged: a hotel made of straw. The people who run it are really friendly and do their utmost to be of assistance. The place is quiet, with exceptional views of the mountains. The bed was confortable. They put a small choices of books in your room. We were disappointed to have only a shower, but it was our fault, since we did not look carefully at the website.

The main and actually small downsides are:
- it's a bit in the middle of nowhere. So perfect if you plan on going hiking or if you want to rest. Less good if you want to grab a coffee and croissant in a village in the morning.
- it's communal style, with a shared big balcony and a shared diner table in the evening. So be prepared to meet the other guests and chat.
- as mentioned previously, a bath tub would be enjoyable after a long walk. But the shower worked well too.
- the room is a bit bare, but that's of course a personal/subjective view.

Try it for an original experience and for the beautiful scenery.

Hi,
Thank you very much for staying at the Maya Guesthouse and for your review and recommendation.
The location is indeed very quiet. This is actually exactly the reason why we chose these place to build our hotel, far away from mass tourism.
The peacefulness and stunning view are an invitation to "dolce farniente". It is also the perfect starting point for hiking at any season.
It is our conceptual choice to have a minimalist design in our bedrooms inspired by natural materials, to offer a relaxing atmosphere. We hope you felt anyway comfortable in our "Pear Tree" room.
Thanks again for recommending the Maya Guesthouse and we sincerely hope to see you back for another romantic stay.
Kind Regards
Lisa and Louis

  End of March 2013 ,I was looking for  somwhere where my sister could  learn skiing  and I could walk . By accident  I find an  accommodation in  Nax in Swiss Alp  by Swiss.com.
I immidiatley booked it for three unforgettable  nights.
I never been in this part of Switzerland and I  didn't know what to expect. 
What we found was a fantastic guesthouse which was made of straw bales and the whole building was Eco friendly with  an amazing view and sunny weather and friendly  host.
The rooms were well designed  by local craft man by using local  natural  wood and  the bathroom was designed  by  top the range Italian bathroom fittings  .
The rooms were large, light and fresh.The beds were  fresh ,clean  and comfortable.
The breakfast and dinners were made  of fresh of local product  by local chef . The homemade marmalade were amazing( made by Lisa's mother).

Be able to sit in the Sun in the balcony in the afternoon ,  greeted by kind people like Lisa and louis ,have  a warm cup of tea  ,watch Swiss Alps covered by  snow  and breath fresh air  was an unforgettable memory.

 Lisa and Louise  are unique people ,they are welcoming, warm,friendly , helpful and they make you to feel at home  all the time 

Maya house is unique place with Lisa and Louise.Highly recommended.

We booked at Maya by chance, we were just looking for some nice place to stay for one night near Sion. The guesthouse is well situated, not too far from the highway, but already in the mountains. The hosts are very warm and welcoming persons and they have set up a project that suits them very well. The quality of materials chosen, of the bedding, were remarkable and we slept strikingly well - the atmosphere in the rooms was very pure, it has to be the straw effect!

I was simply looking for a place to stay during the Rallye du Valais...what I found was a fantastic and new B&B in a superb location and mainly for me, in the middle of one of the rally stages! The owners, Louis and Lisa made me feel truely at home with a fantastic evening meal, a great breakfast and overall great service. The room had everything I needed and the whole construction and Engineering behind was as well impressive. I am definetely taking the whole family soon.

WOW!
We were one of the first guest in the newly opened straw bale hotel Maya Guesthouse in the Swiss Valais.

It is amazing! The walls were one meter thick, just the depth of the straw bale. The rooms were purely natural. The walls covered with clay, the sealing was made out of wood. The furniture was all hand made by local artist. They used local wood to furbish each room with a different type of wood. The bathrooms were very modern with italian design.
Never slept so good. Was it the fact that no noise came from the outside (even between the rooms they used 1 meter thick straw bales), or the fresh air in the Swiss Alps, or the fact that for the first time we experienced a completely chemical free environment? We do not know. What we do know is that they did not save money on the bedding. The mattresses were just right and the duvet the finest quality.

In the morning we were served local delicatessen for breakfast together with home made bread out of the wooden stove. Incredible, but the oven even produces hot water for our showers just by using the exceeding heat.

All in all it was an unique experience. The little village of Nax is very picturesque and the landscape around it just breathtaking.

We will certainly get back to the Maya Guesthouse for our next vacation. This time we will stay a little longer to benefit from the micro climate in Nax.

Lisa and Louis were the hosts one wants to have when being on holidays.

My wife and I enjoyed a wornderful stay at Maya guesthouse.
The hotel brand new and beautiful and eco-friendly (it is made with straw bales!).
The rooms are spacious with an awesome view on the valley and are furnished with taste (art rather than craft).
The hospitality is warm and professional. Dinner for gourmets.
The village of Nax is a gem in the Swiss Alps.
Thank you Louis and Lisa, we'll come back soon!
