A holiday here includes
From the shade of towering coconut palms at the water's edge, Villa Maya gazes across the ocean to the distant island of Nusa Penida. With ocean views from its bedrooms, an unbelievably romantic self-contained 'honeymoon' suite housed in an antique wooden joglo within the garden, and an impeccable team of staff, guests at this luxurious four-bedroom, beachfront haven on Bali's south-east coast will want for nothing.
Villa Maya's two-storey main building is nobly decked out with hardwood floors, antiques and very inviting soft furnishings; its central living and dining area leading out to the garden and 14-metre pool via two jacuzzi tubs – one of them indulgently positioned indoors. Three romantic bedrooms with opulent bathrooms, offer views of the sea from between the sheets.
An open-sided pavilion overlooking the ocean at the far end of the garden provides an alternative living and dining space, and it's here that many of your meals are likely to be served, although candlelit dinners under palm trees and stars on the seaside deck are also very special.
It comes as no surprise that Villa Maya is a much-sought-after wedding venue. The beautifully ornate, antique wooden joglo within the villa's grounds, complete with delightful bedroom, living and dining space, a kitchen and an 8-metre private pool, makes the ultimate honeymoon suite, while the joglo's large lawn space and waterfront deck provide the perfect backdrop for the most romantic of nuptials.
Being one of three private homes for rental on the exclusive Majapahit Beach Villas estate, fully staffed by a professional team including a manager, personal on-call butlers, a chef and daily housekeeping, Villa Maya is perfect for groups of friends, families with older children, brides and grooms and wedding guests.
With its absolute oceanfront position, exotic tropical island views, eclectic interiors and five-star service, Villa Maya will make your Bali holiday dream come true.

Majapahit Beach Villas are located at Pabean Beach down a narrow lane off the Klungkung Bypass, which runs along the east coast and is also known as the Sunrise Road. Bounded by the River Wos, rice fields, tobacco plantations, papaya, banana and coconut groves, the area is blessed with spectacular views extending across the ocean towards the beaches of Sanur and Nusa Dua, the islands of Lembongan, Ceningan and Penida, and the mountains of East Bali.
Pabean was once a small port through which oriental traders brought their products; at low tide you can still see the structure of the old harbour. This glistening black sand stretch of coastline is popular with surfers and beachcombers but swirling currents and a lack of lifeguards make it unsuitable for swimming for all but the most confident of swimmers.
The nearby village of Ketewel is the origin of the celebrated Legong Bededari Dance, and the neighbouring village of Saba produced the finest Legong dancers on the island. There are no Western-style restaurants in this area, but there are plenty of local warungs (eateries), while international restaurants, shops galore can be found just 13km away in Sanur. Also the location is in between Seminyak and the cultural capital of Bali, Ubud and just 5 -10 minutes from all the famous traditional villages of Mas, Sukawati, Batubulan and Batuan for all handicraft shopping.
Things to do
The villa manager has a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Do also ask other staff about the local area. Invariably some of them will live nearby and will be able to give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of Bali life.
In the meantime, here is a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of the Majapahit Beach Villas.
- The stretch of beach between Sanur and Ketewel is well known as a surfer’s heaven (especially in east coast season, which runs from November to May, when the winds turn offshore on this side of the island), but beginners should be aware of strong, swirling currents. Good breaks can be found in front of the Grand Bali and Sanur Beach Hotels, while surf spots really close to Majapahit Beach Villas include Keramas, Ketewel and Cucukan.
- Sukawati (7km) is famous for its cheap local arts and crafts market although better quality goods can be had in Ubud (art), Celuk (silverware) and Mas (woodwork).
- Bicycles are available at Majapahit Beach Villas for exploring the scenic rice-field and tobacco – plantation landscape, coastline and rural villages (a great way to get under the skin of the ‘real’ Bali.) Stop off at a local warung (café) to sample some basic Balinese fare or cool off with a cold drink.
- Le Mayeur Museum in Sanur (11km) is the former home of noted Belgian impressionist Adrian Jean Le Mayeur. The building is now a museum which, as well as showcasing the artist’s work, gives visitors an insight into what it must have been like to be one of Bali’s very first expats. Although in need of some maintenance, this remains one of Bali’s true hidden treasures.
- An annual international kite festival takes place at Padang Galak beach (just north of Sanur) every July. Traditional Balinese giant kites up to ten metres in length are made and flown competitively by teams from different villages around Bali. Originally, these kites were intended to send a message to the Hindu Gods to create abundant crops and harvests. Aside from the festival itself, visitors will see many giant kites being flown in this area from June through to August.
- Saba Bay Horse Riding (3km) has a special horse riding track (suitable for beginners) on a beautiful black sandy beach overlooking the Indian Ocean and Nusa Penida Island.
- There are several dive operators around Sanur, but this area is more suited to beginners or refresher courses. The better dive sites are further North in Tulumben, or out on the islands of Nusa Penida and Lembongan.
- Bali Safari & Marine Park (8km) offers a fun family day out. Home to hundreds of amazing animals representing more than 50 species, it presents a tram ride through the animal enclosures, a marine aquarium, a theatre, animal educational and entertainment shows, as well as the Fun Zone where visitors can get wet and wild in the Waterpark or embark on a Jungle Cruise.
- Covering 3.8 hectares of tropical parkland in Kuta, Waterbom Bali has 16 water slides (including The Climax with its 360 degree loop) to entertain the young and the young at heart. A great family day out, but go early to beat the crowds.
- Fishermen, snorkellers or those who just fancy a sunset cruise can set sail on Majapahit Beach Villas’ traditional fishing boat – your villa manager will be pleased to arrange your trip.
- Other activities include golfing in Sanur, the Elephant Safari Park, rafting in Ubud and only 5km away is the famous surfing beach of Keramas.
