Designed by awards winning architect, Budiman Hendropurnomo of Denton Corker Marshall, Maya Ubud Resort & Spa represents a paradise oasis created on earth. Swimming pool, bar, restaurant, leisure areas and beautiful designed rooms give you the impression that you are suspended somewhere between the sky and the river valley below. The design concept of Maya Ubud Resort & Spa is a celebration of Balinese culture and heritage. Tropical gardens invite you to rest in the afternoon, as the piece of land is itself a tranquil haven. Meanwhile the architect did not forget about the History lesson: Indonesian heritage is represented in the eclectic collection of antiques in the open plan lobby, the restaurants and villas. Modern Balinese style is reflected in the architecture with the use of thatched roofs, blending the buildings into the surrounding environment. A central ceremonial walkway along the central ridge connects important public spaces from the porte-cochere, through the lobby and down to the spa. The villas or dwellings are then positioned on either side creating a village like axis that follows the contours of the land.
