If you are yet to fall in love with Bali, spend an afternoon down by the river at Maya Ubud Resort & Spa and we guarantee you’ll be head over heels. Day visitors are welcome at this resort, which tumbles down a gorge forested in palms, banana trees and bamboo groves. The River Café is a slice of tropical paradise serving up “conscious cuisine” created by the only female executive chef on the island, Australian Katherine Townsend. Applying a holistic approach to dining, superfoods abound, as well as fresh organic vegetables and herbs from the resort gardens.
The Riverside Salad Bowl teems with taste and texture, the plump crispy salmon is served on a chickpea and spinach fritter, while the heavenly vegan chocolate mousse lives up to its name with a smooth velvety texture composed with avocado, honey, raw cacao and vanilla bean. The Spa at Maya is adjacent to the restaurant, with atmospheric treatment pavilions scattered along the river. Famed for its exotic sensory journeys, a spa session or package is perfectly completed with a nutritious and tasty lunch at the River Café. Maya Ubud Resort & Spa also offers beautiful private villas and rooms.
Set in the foothills of Bali, 35 kilometres from Seminyak, Ubud is an arts village surrounded by rice fields, palm groves and dramatic forested ravines. Known as the cultural heart of Bali, it is also a haven for gourmands and those looking to tap into the more spiritual side of the island.
