Architecture & Design
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.
