When I first walked in to Maca Villas and Spa, located centrally in Seminyak, I thought the lovely attendants at the reception were just as happy to see me as I was to see them! It felt so exciting! There were warm greetings and welcomes coming from all around, out of nowhere two absolutely delicious and refreshing welcome drinks were presented so professionally, the room key was already ready to go and several friendly room attendants began to take our bags towards our own private pool villa whilst we were escorted by another one of Maca’s friendly staff members to one of 25 amazing, private, slices of heaven, and guess what? We were lucky number 25!
I know it said One Bedroom Deluxe Pool Villa, but when you walk in the wooden doors of the jungle styled complex to your own lap pool, fit with day bed on the water, you quite literally have to ask “Are you sure that’s just for us?” AND did I mention you can quite literally step (or dive) in from your bedroom, or lounge and living area with the full-length window sliding doors? Well, you can! And it’s LUX-UR-Y with a capital L!
We were given a thoroughly explained tour of all of our villa facilities, including the stunning spa-style bath and overhead open-space shower in our bathroom, detailed explanations on how to use the safe, tv/air con controls, the mini bar inclusions and exclusions so you don’t get any unwanted surprises at the end and how to unlock and lock the sliding doors and villa door, Maca Villas are basically just service with an extra warm, friendly smile!
I love the breakfast menu that you can fill out with a diverse range of options as well as delivery methods, for example, loving your privacy in your home away from home? Have it delivered, at the time YOU choose! Want to instead enjoy it at the restaurant? Well, you can, with an easy drop-off at front desk you will have your order ready to go at the time you selected! Don’t you know what this is all about? You relax! Maca Villas has got everything covered for you!
There is a beautiful intimate spa room where you can relax and indulge by yourself or with a partner, as well as a modern communal pool area with cocktail lounge seating and tropical rock-themed waterfall. When asked how would you describe Maca Villas to your guests, the lovely marketing manager Mai responded, “Maca Villas makes you feel like you’re at home away from home, it’s privacy brings a wonderful sense of luxury and relaxation, but you have the choice of indulging in private or enjoying company in the restaurant and pool areas, giving it a great range of diversity. Maca Villas are a mix between Villas and a Small Hotel, so you can have BOTH!”
I can say after thoroughly enjoying my stay here at Maca, that I fully agree with Mai! I love being able to walk through the cultural walkways from my Villa to the Front of the resort and be greeted by all of the friendly faces, staff as well as fellow travelers! But there is still such a serenity, maybe because everybody is in “Private Villa Holiday Mode” but it truly feels like your own little tropical bliss to just kick back, relax and enjoy your well-deserved holiday!
I would recommend direct booking as Maca Villas and Spa are very customer service orientated and they would love to tailor to your specific needs, if you have something special in mind they will be able to help you plan better and give you great tips, you’ll be getting your ideas from the people who know them best!
The busy season is usually around July-August and also October, but don’t worry, their prices stay the same regardless of the season, because they are just awesome like that! These months above are not so rainy, so it is more popular to come to Bali then, but I’m sitting here having a dip in February sans rain and couldn’t be happier!
