Balance natural splendor and village convenience, big resort and intimate retreat, even black and white at the Maya Ubud. Set in the rolling green hills above the Petanu River Valley, the Maya Ubud is 10 minutes by shuttle from the center of the village, closer than other similarly expansive (and expensive) resorts. A dramatic infinity pool commands the vista, and there's another pool below with a river view. The hotel offers a full array of feel-good activities: yoga,
tai chi, pilates, and meditation, as well as afternoon tea. Bali's traditional black and white poleng patterns inspire the interior décor, and all rooms have balconies where you can enjoy the landscape.
