Villa Naga Maya
Ranked #7 of 86 Specialty Lodging in Legian
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 21, 2009

I have been to Bali 11 times and usually stay in or around Legian (Padma, All Seasons, Legian Beach Hotel, Villa Aya ...) and have never had such a pleasant and comfortable stay as this one at Villa Naga Maya. The service you receive from Merrick and his staff is second to none. From the efficient airport pick up (they even provided car seats for our children) to the personalised goodbye from each staff member, we at all times felt like treasured and honoured guests.

We stayed in Villa Kamboja and it was very well appointed, with comfortable beds, cool and quiet air - con and ceiling fans, lots of drawers and storage space, a beautiful outdoor bathroom downstairs and en - suite upstairs, microwave and large fridge, indoor and outdoor eating areas, three large flat screen tv's and dvd player and too many more to list ...

You share a large pool with the villa next door. We both had our own sun - loungers and shaded table and chairs and though our neighbours during our trip were lovely (we had after - dinner drinks with them a couple of times) if you wanted privacy and to keep - to yourself there is more than enough space for you to do so.

The staff and the service they provide is truly what makes Villa Naga Maya special. They recommended and then booked beautiful restaurants for us, organised a birthday cake for my friend, researched cooking lessons for us and even managed to replace a punctured pram tyre - within half an hour I might add - for us. We especially appreciated the services and attention they provided our children with - cots (with mosquite netting), high chairs and pool toys and making them feel so special - helping our daughter learn Bahasa and playing with our son.

The location of Villa Naga Maya is fantastic - within a 5 min stroll to the beach and some wonderful restaurants and bars which overlook it and just down a short lane to shops and more bars and restaurants. Merrick (the owner) provided us with a map that he had drawn up himself which helped us orientate ourselves and also highlighted restaurants he recommended which were within walking distance of the villa - all of which we tried and loved!

The last thing I will mention is something that you don't come by often. Once you get to the Villa I am sure they don't make another cent off you. The drinks in the fridge are at or cheaper than street prices, it would have cost my husband an extra 3000rp to walk down the street and buy a small bintang from the corner store rather than take one out of the fridge. Our laundry which we left in the hampers in our rooms was washed, ironed and returned to us the next day for less than what we would have paid out on the street.

I could not recommend this property more highly, it truly is a hidden gem in the heart of Legian - I just hope I can get a reservation the next time we want to stay there - which will be soon!!!

What a pleasant surprise when we arrived at The Villa Naga Maya for 4 nights just a short safe walk down a gang (lane) to the entrance where the owner Merrick himself welcomed us - showed us the workings of the Villa armed with a cool wet towel & welcome drink in hand plus a fruit/nut basket which was personally handpicked. Included in the nightly rate was airport transfers - as we were already in Bali at Nusa Dua a quick email to Merrick/Puta was sent to organize a transfer from our hotel to the Villa Naga Maya they were very obliging & their driver was punctual picking us up at the arranged time.

Villa Naga Maya is set back from the hustle & bustle of the main streets of Legion which is a welcome relief where you can revive from the bartering/atmosphere of the thriving streets.

We stayed in Villa Kamboja which consisted of 2 bedrooms main with ensuite & down stairs an large outdoor bathroom, tastefully decorated & the bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable. The two bedrooms are both air conditioned with ceiling fans placed to cool the rest of the villa.
Our villa was serviced each day with breakfast served near the pool or where ever you would like. Supplied with the villa was a very large container of Aqua drinking water. The kitchen is well equipped though we didn't use too much except for coffee & tea as we opted to dine out which there is quite a few reasonable price local restaurants to try out. Merrick was very helpful in recommending such plus his helpful tips to make our stay more enjoyable.

After a day of sightseeing or shopping it was very inviting to have swim in our pool with a quiet drink/or Bintang that you share with just one other villa

Our stay at the Villa Naga Maya was quite enjoyable, Merrick, Puta & staff make us feel comfortable and for a two bedroom villa in Legion walking distance to beach/shopping & bordering Seminyak is good value at US$150 per night low season. We would definitely come back for another visit.
