From the moment you arrive here, serenity takes you in its arms and won’t, believe me, let you go until you leave. It’s the perfect place to rediscover yourself, get back your lost mojo, or simply be pampered, relax and unwind.
Although on the surface MAIA seems to be a couples’ destination, it is in fact, an ideal place to go on a family vacation. Kids are made to feel very welcome, with their own recreational team for planning activities and a butler on hand 24/7.
MAIA, a new breed of resort, is run on an all-inclusive basis and in doing so, doesn’t aim to skimp or practice portion control in any way. Their dining ethos is one of ‘whatever; whenever’, a brilliant concept which is difficult to pull off and yet it seems so effortless here. Cuisines vary from different countries, all perfectly cooked and presented and not a dreaded buffet in sight. But the real story here is in the rooms. Villas, all stand alone, all with their own butler, all with their own pool, and all huge, are the only accommodation type going. And there are various options: the ‘ocean panoramic’ category (19 in total); and the ‘MAIA signature’ ones (11 in total).
The ocean villas are nestled amidst the foliage on the hillside, with stunning views of the sea and the MAIA bay, whereas the signature villas are generally situated closer to the beach with direct beach access. But with that, many don’t have a view as they are hidden behind foliage in the form of added privacy. This little piece of paradise is a very ‘real’ experience. If you want to be pampered and rejuvenate without any pretentious glitz and hype, then this is the place to go, without a doubt.
