When it is time to pause your frenetic pace and rediscover senses dulled by the incessant demands of life, we offer something more than just breathtaking views, unsurpassed service and astonishing accommodation. Maia offers you a place to restore your self.
Gentle rolling waves break on the white sands of a private beach, leading up to green lawns and tropical gardens that make your Ocean Front Villa feel like a private paradise. Perfectly secluded from each other, Ocean Front Villas put your toes a few feet from the Indian Ocean.
At the same time, they are ideal for families. Families can book villas next to each other for easy get-togethers like scrumptious seafood beach barbeques personally prepared by the chef.
Excellence in taste is not only something reserved for aesthetics. At Maia, gastronomical pleasure is a promise – and because we know that an appetite or even a fetish for food doesn't keep restaurant hours, our kitchens cater for individual tastes, satiating your desires with the flexibility to indulge your palate beyond the confines of a regular menu and set dining hours.
Our skilled culinary team has perfected the art of fusion cooking to create intriguing blends of flavour, texture, colour and aroma by placing an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients.
Our menu isn't a variety of meals. It's a variety of menus.
Our chefs will delight you with a la carte options featuring Creole, French, contemporary and Mediterranean cuisine, complemented by Asian and Creole accents. 'Catch-of-the-day' offers a variety of freshly caught fish to suit every taste and appetite.
Typical dishes include Lobster sago salad with green asparagus, scented fresh basil and peach ravioli coolant, Grilled sea scallops a la plancha, with scented wasabi and crispy asparagus tempura soba-style, Cherry gazpacho with goat's cheese ice cream and herb salad, Slow-cooked pan seared pigeon with artichokes and quail egg scented with truffles oil, Almond panacotta with cilantro salad and pineapple and hazelnut gianduja raviolitto and a Duo of grapefruits on a fine layer of pistachio biscuit and vanilla 'air'. Savour the thought.
