Our 6 night stay at Mahamaya was fantastic! David, Alison and Jar have the perfect formula, whether you are on honeymoon or, like us, having a first holiday "sans kids" for 20 years.
As keen snorkelers (ex divers who have dived and snorkeled all over Australia and SE Asia for 30 years), we were amazed at the quality of the reef life right off the beach in front of the hotel. Out of 20 individual snorkels we saw green turtles on 19 of them!!! If you like to walk, you can do without a boat by simply walking to various snorkeling sites - the Gili T side of the island and the northern tip provide the best sites. Watch the tides as the current can be quite strong along the edges of the walls.
Back to Mahamaya - The pool and suites are beautiful and quiet, with lovely furnishings, nice large beds, light bathroom and enchanting open air showers.
The Staff are amazingly attentive - nothing is too much trouble for them, especially Brown and Ricky! They love talking to you about your day's activities, where you come from etc., and clearly take great pride in their appearance and attentiveness. Our travel arrangements from the southern Gili Islands (also worth a visit) to and from Mahamaya/Lombok Airport were all arranged by Mahamaya and were hassle free.
Cocktail happy hour (2 hours actually) is an experience not be missed whilst watching the sun set over the northern tip of Gili T and the food is to die for!! Jar (the Chef) is an absolute ledgend - swap recipes with him, you will not be disappointed! His set menu is wonderful but his lunch and nightly specials are superb! We dined every night on the beach, which was very romantic, and on our last night, the Staff made us feel very special with a beautiful table decoration and complimentary cocktails.
Thanks Mahamaya, we had a wonderful, relaxing and indulgent time, were spoiled rotten by your team and would return tomorrow for more of the same!!!

We had a great stay at the Mahamaya. The placement of the hotel is amazing with the beach just outside. Well in the water one is almost guaranteed to spot sea turtles when snorkeling just in front of the hotel. One can really tell that the staff has loads of fun together and they really care about making you visit count. We had a couple of great dinners at the beach restaurant with great food, the staff also stood for the entertainment with a fireshow. The staff did give great help with activities around the island and had good ideas for lunch and dinner when we wanted to discover what the remainder parts of Gili Meno had to offer. The sweet water no chemicals pool outside the suites is great for taking a refreshing dip when comming black after the beach. In summary Mahamaya was the best hotel during our honeymoon trip to Bali.

Mahamaya just has it nailed. The team there was amazing. We could only stay 2 days as they were booked solid but we came back the next two nights for dinner. We got to know so many of the staff as they were genuinely happy and enjoyed their jobs. Every one welcomed us by name and go to know our kids. The atmosphere was so relaxing, clean and enjoyable. We had the ocean view villa and would come back in a minute. Couldn't recommend more

We stayed here for 3 nights towards the end of our honeymoon, thanks to the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not at all disappointed. We took a private speedboat transfer from Lombok straight to the beach in front of this hotel which only took 20 minutes. The staff greeted us on the beach and after a briefing on the hotel and the island, they showed us to our room and found they'd upgraded us from a pool suite to a beach villa which was fabulous. It looks straight out on to the beach and out to sea. Lovely large bedroom, large bed, contemporary style, great air conditioning, huge bathroom and then a beautiful and big outside shower which we loved. Definitely worth paying the extra for a beach villa.
The staff were brilliant, especially Ricky, Taufik, Jum and Arie. They all made conversation with all the guests and made a personal connection with everyone which made our stay that extra bit special. The food was delicious. Not a huge menu but enough really good things to choose from during our stay. I'd highly recommend their Thai Green Chicken curry.........fabulous!
There is a smallish freshwater pool which is really nice for a dip to cool down after snorkelling.
The Island:-
The snorkelling was excellent in SOME places but you need to know where to go and when. A few hundred metres to the left of the hotel are some lovely coral gardens and a huge variety of fish and the odd turtle which is all brilliant when it's clear. If we did this trip again, we'd do a snorkelling boat trip to see a few more different areas as I'm sure there are other good spots too.
We walked around the island in 90 minutes. Best to do it early morning or evening when it's not quite so hot! It was such a shame that there was so much rubbish around the island and on the beaches where there wasn't a decent hotel or lodge to clear it up. We didn't like this at all. We were also very surprised to see that the boats weren't restricted to coming in to specific points around the island and just pulled up anywhere and dropped anchor anywhere which must destroy the coral. If they don't do something about this and the rubbish soon, they will lose the tourists because if they don't have the coral, the fish and nice beaches, the tourists won't want to come which would be a real shame as Gili Meno is a lovely, small, peaceful island.

Thank you to everyone at the Mahamaya for making our stay very, very special and memorable. 5 star service.

We stayed for 3 nights in a beach villa, excellent quality room, with probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Right on the beach, excellent for honeymooners and couples.
Cocktails could be a little stronger and maybe some more local food offerings but overall would recommend. The hotel offers free snorkeling gear as well as free kayak hire. You can go snorkeling on the reef right off the beach.

Room Tip: Beach Villa is excellent
