From the moment you descend the broad stone staircase that carves its way down the river gorge, Villa Maya Retreat will captivate you with its beauty and tranquility. Jungle vines hang from mature trees, moss and lichen cling to carved statues and a waterfall cascades all the way to the villa hidden below.
By the time you reach the villa it really sinks in that this is your own private paradise. A huge rust-red door swings open to reveal a lush and secluded oasis. Traditional thatch-roofed pavilions overlook the Penet River and clusters of towering bamboo, while a 12-metre swimming pool with timber deck provides the perfect spot to soak up the forest ambiance.
With six stand-alone bedrooms (three with plunge pools), Villa Maya Retreat is perfect for families, friends or groups looking to share their holiday experience but who also desire privacy and room to breathe. Designed with space in mind there are plenty of places to take in the views and absorb the solitude; from the curtained relaxation bals to the secret garden alcoves to the sunset lounge at the rivers edge.
The Villa is set in true rural Bali with everything you need at your fingertips. A full complement of staff, including an experienced chef, is on hand to prepare and serve delicious home-cooked Asian and Western meals. A car and driver is also on standby for those eager to explore the island or indulge in Seminyaks trendy restaurants, bars and shops.
A stay at Villa Maya Retreat is not complete without exploring the pretty neighboring village of Cepaka, located in the heart of Balis rice bowl. Here, guests are privy to local traditions that have been practiced for centuries. Whether it happens while youre witnessing a temple ceremony, watching farmers tend their fields or simply playing with the village children in the street, its hard not to fall under the spell of the Island of the Gods, its magic leaving you refreshed and rejuvenated for your return home.
