From the moment you descend the steep stone staircase that carves its way down the river gorge, Villa Maya Retreat will captivate you with its beauty and tranquillity. Jungle vines hang from mature trees, moss and lichen cling to carved statues and a waterfall cascades all the way to the villa hidden below.
By the time you reach the villa it really sinks in that this is your own private paradise. A huge rust-red door swings open to reveal a lush and secluded oasis. Traditional thatch-roofed pavilions overlook the fast flowing Penet River and clusters of towering bamboo, while a 12-metre swimming pool with timber deck provides the perfect spot to soak up the forest ambiance.
Designed with space in mind there are plenty of places to take in the views and absorb the solitude; from the curtained relaxation balés to the secret garden alcoves to the sunset lounge at the river’s edge.
With six stand-alone bedrooms, (three with plunge pools), Villa Maya Retreat is perfect for families, friends or groups looking to share their holiday experience but who also desire privacy and room to breathe.
- Among the many highlights of Villa Maya Retreat are its lush tropical gardens, river setting and jungle vibe. Designed to maximise the villa’s natural surroundings, outdoor living spaces invite guests to unwind, relax and admire the native vegetation and fauna – in particular the iridescent blue kingfishers and alu (water monitor lizards) that scale the river banks.
The open-sided dining pavilion with its alang-alang thatched roof, polished grey floors and ceiling fans forms the communal hub of the villa. Positioned next to the swimming pool, this room features a huge 4-metre-long solid wood dining table complemented by ten black rattan chairs with beige and black striped cushions, and a large vase of bright tropical flowers.
Adjacent to the dining area is the fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel work tops and appliances. Wooden-framed windows retract to allow for natural ventilation and a service bar with three bar stools is just the place to enjoy a cocktail while watching the chef cook.

Villa Maya Retreat is located in a jungle-clad river gorge close to the pretty village of Cepaka in Bali’s Tabanan Regency, also known as Bali’s ‘rice bowl’ due to its vast terraced rice fields. This quaint village borders the Penet River and is a stunning example of a traditional Balinese community that has been untouched by tourism and the rapid development to the south of the island. Venturing out on foot or bicycle, guests can enjoy a privileged insight into the agricultural, religious and daily life of the villagers.
