Loved Mahamaya. It's a cosy and quiet place, very helpful and friendly staff who remembers your name. Food is fantastic too, we had breakfast lunch and dinner there for 2 days despite having more options just a short walk down the beach. Will definitely go back again!

Wow!!!
This place was amazing. A quiet beach with warm, clear water and few to no waves. It was the perfect place to relax with no distractions. Snorkeling in the mornings with the big turtles was a great way to start the day. The food was some of the best we had on our entire trip and the staff were attentive, polite and had personality. Rikki and the other staff made us feel very welcome and comfortable and we shared many laughs (just ask Rikki for his Aussie impressions). We stayed in both style rooms and both were impeccable.
Very glad we stayed!

Beautiful hotel, very relaxed - everything you need at hand and great service and food too! The perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of life. Recommend a bike ride around the island too and nightly sundower cocktails.

Fantastic stay, was more than we could have hoped for. Fantastic rooms, were tidied whenever we left the room so when we returned the bed was always made with little flowers. The food was fantastic, the desert selection - wow, don't come if you're on a diet as you'll miss out! The staff were friendly and the hotel is perfectly located on the island, right next door is a dive centre. Would definitely choose this hotel again.

Stayed here late April 2013 and would go back in a heartbeat.
It is the perfect place to get away from it all. No tv, no radio, no alarm clock and no shoes. Thats right spent all our time at the resort without putting on shoes. They do have wifi but I can honestly say that this was the first time I have completely relaxed when on holiday. Within half a day I had really begun to relax.
The staff are magnificent. friendly, engaging and fun. They make this place. During our stay one of the staff on his morning off took some guests out for a snorkel to find them turtles- that's how good they are.
We arrived early- no problem. Filled in the paper work whilst enjoying a welcome drink, then given some beach towels and shown around and then invited to "relax". We went to the pool which was shaded and within minutes was enjoying my first cold beer, Mrs HP had a cocktail.
Our Room:- Cookie Villa
We splurged and stayed in one of two beach front villas. Huge room complete with outdoor shower & air conditioning. The bed was comfortable & the water chiller was brilliant. they also give you personal water bottles so youcan take water out with you when you go exploring.
The Grounds:- A fresh water pool with a sunshade over it is a brilliant idea. Around this are the pool villas. Once again very quiet.
Out the front is where we spent most of our time when not snorkeling. They have a private beach area (the beach is crushed coral so not silky soft but not harsh either. If you want silky soft sand walk 2o minutes to other side of the island). The water hear is also very clear and a good drift snorkel location. Within 20mtr of shore their is living coral, plenty of fish and if lucky a turtle or two. We would sit at our favourite table on the beach for sunset cocktails (happy our is 5-7) and the cocktails are GOOD! Magical sunsets accompanied by the odd turtle raising it's head being spotted in the water.
The Food:- OMG! You have to try the Taliwang Chiken for dinner. I would go back just for that, it was seriously that good. Breakfast offers a choice of items of the menu plus a selection of help yourself fresh fruit, banana fritters, cake and hot food like sausages, hash brown etc. One would struggle to eat the same thing twice if you stayed for two weeks. Chef thankyou for the Ayam Taliwang.
The Staff: Brilliant, fantastic, happy, engaging. (I wish they all had name tags as they remembered our names but I felt so bad not being able to remember theirs).
Mahamaya is a peace of heaven on earth. They are also very environmentally aware. A showcase in how sustainability, minimal environmental impact and 5 star luxury can be achieved.
To everyone at Mahamaya, thankyou so very very much for a wonderful experience. I miss it very much already.

We've been in Mahamaya in March for 7 days and really enjoyed it - it was the best accommodation we've ever had in Indonesia.

We had one of the beach villas with the most amazing beach view that I've ever seen, waking up and seeing the white beach with the turquoise water is just awesome. Moreover the staff was excellent and very attentive to our needs.

This is a great location and a real bonous is that there are amazing snorkeling areas just in front of Mahamaya. Everyday we've seen at least one turtle while snorkeling, a real unforgettable experience.

The worst on our stay was to leave Gili Meno and Mahamaya with its amazing staff!
I would always recommend to plan a stay in Mahamaya if you plan to go to Gili Meno and already did this ;-)
