Maya Ubud Resort & Spa sits in splendid seclusion, bordered by the dramatic Petanu River Valley to the east and the vibrant rice fields of Peliatan on the west. The ten hectare tract of land is itself a tranquil haven of tropical gardens and architect-designed thatched buildings, private pool villas and luxury guestrooms.
Maya Ubud is a luxury resort designed to capture the spirit of a traditional Balinese village.
It is a leisurely twenty-five minute stroll from Maya Ubud to the colorful and bustling village of Ubud, with its fascinating market, art museums and galleries, shopping boutiques and restaurants. A complimentary shuttle service is available between the resort and the central market daily from 9.00 am – 9.00 pm.
Designed by award-winning architect, Budiman Hendropurnomo of Denton Corker Marshall, Maya Ubud Resort & Spa is inspired by the ancient Balinese wisdom of orientation. A ceremonial walkway along the central ridge of the property connects all public spaces from the porte-cochere, through the lobby and down to the riverside spa. All villas are then positioned on either side to reflect the ambience of a harmonious village that follows the contours of the land.
Conceptually, the resort is a celebration of Bali’s cultural heritage. However, in terms of décor, it ventures beyond the island to include an eclectic collection of antiques. Reclaimed timbers have been used together with more modern natural materials to create unique interiors rich in character. Old cartwheels have been fashioned into mirror frames, tabletops were once teakrailway sleepers and traditional fish traps and baskets are now handcrafted lampshades.
Restaurants & Bar
Maya Ubud offers an array of dining and cuisine alternatives. Choose the style to suit the mood – from bountiful buffet breakfasts to candlelight dinners that create special and memorable moments. Experience sumptuous sunrise buffets enhanced with river valley views at Maya Sari Restaurant, Asian-style restaurant that features an authentic teppanyaki counter at Asiatique, savor healthy spa-inspired dishes, pasta and great pizzas and enjoy the panoramic views of the valley to accompany refreshing favorite cocktails and ice cold brews.

Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa is a multi-award winning holistic healing resort located in the pristine south of the Thai island of Koh Samui on tranquil Laem Set Beach. Integrated into a tropical hilly landscape, the 25 villas, 26 suites and 24 rooms of the five-star resort are spread out between lush greenery and blue pools. The name “Kamalaya” means “kingdom of the lotus” and stands for the unfolding of body, mind and soul. In line with its holistic philosophy, Kamalaya combines Asian and Western healing traditions to help those seeking relaxation find new energy and health. The offer ranges from detoxification to stress and burnout programmes to the improvement of sleep, fitness and emotional balance.
From monk to founder of a luxury wellness retreat
The Kamalaya healing resort reflects the life experiences of founding couple John and Karina Stewart and their desire to help others.
Canadian John spent 16 years under the tutelage of a yogi master in a North Indian ashram. There he met his now wife Karina, who had been practising Asian medicine for many years. Together they wanted to create a place where ancient Asian wisdom and wellness and healing methods could be applied in a modern way and be accessible to everyone. When John moved to Koh Samui in 2000 for health reasons, he accidentally discovered a centuries-old rock cave that once served as a retreat for Buddhist monks. Inspired by this place of power, the holistically oriented Kamalaya was created on this spot in 2005.
Healing and sustainable – programmes against stress and burnout
With a selection of more than 70 treatments and therapies, the holistically trained Kamalaya team can specifically address individual needs – from stress reduction to the treatment of pre-existing burnout symptoms. The results-oriented programmes include therapeutic massages from Thai, Chinese and Indian healing traditions as well as personal counselling sessions on nutrition, stress management as well as relaxation techniques.
Balm for the belly
The so-called “Enriched Gut Programme”, loosely translated as “Balm for the Gut” at Kamalaya is based on the knowledge of how important a well-functioning gut is for the entire immune system and thus for physical, mental and emotional health. The programme rebalances bacteria and microflora in the digestive system and thus prevents inflammatory processes in the body. The latest findings from the fields of naturopathy, TCM, Ayurveda, nutrition and other holistic healing methods are incorporated. The healthy cuisine at Kamalaya has an additional supporting effect.
Physiotherapy the Asian way – Structural Revival
Kamalaya’s holistic Structural Revival Programme is designed to realign the body, improve posture, relieve tension, rehabilitate injuries and restore maximum mobility, functionality and vitality.
Physiotherapists teach exercises that guests can continue at home. Using a combination of Western and Asian healing methods, Structural Revival analyses and treats the causes of physiological dysfunctions. The programme includes physiotherapy sessions as well as individual Pilates training to strengthen the body and stabilise the joints.
Fitness programmes for body, mind and soul
Kamalaya’s “Comprehensive Optimal Fitness” programme is aimed specifically at sportspeople who want to make their training even more effective and at the same time strive for a healthy lifestyle. It is about consciously balancing an intensive workout with gentle strengthening and relaxation techniques and a balanced diet. Basic Optimal Fitness” is recommended for beginners.
