Located in Uluwatu, Bali, the westernmost edge of the Bukit peninsula, The Asa Maia is an intimate wellness resort with 10 guest suites arrayed around an airy central pavilion. The central court features a vast outdoor dining area overlooking the salt-water pool. A footpath leads guests to a dramatic, rock-hewn firepit surrounded by sculptural limestone seating slabs. The main building houses the spa, a library, a boutique, a gym, a consultation room, and a spacious yoga shala on the upper level. Reclaimed teakwood and ironwood create a sense of timeless authenticity, set in a superb architectural framework.
From Balinese massage to yoga to SOMA breathwork and Pilates, The Asa Maia offers a comprehensive choice of health-enhancing activities, all led by experienced practitioners. Furthermore, guests can experience cold and hot pools, and infrared sauna, or work out at the gym.
The Asa Maia believes that healthy clean food created with love and care nourishes the heart. The vegan and pescatarian cuisines are specially designed for its conscious and mindful guests. Prepared with mostly organic ingredients, they focus on a perfectly calibrated mix of raw and cooked ingredients with very specific nutritional purposes. The resulting dishes help to boost concentration and energy, improve sleep, and balance blood-sugar levels.
There are 10 guest suites/Gladaks. Each traditional Gladak has been outfitted with expanded fenestration, high-end bath fixtures, traditional Indonesian hand-poured cement tiles, copper or Belgian Bluestone bathtubs, imported linen bedding, air conditioning, WI-FI, Bose sound, custom furnishings and original art.
There’s a salt-water pool connected to the vast outdoor dining area.
WHAT WE LOVE
- The Asa Maia is deeply committed to cultural and environmental responsibilities. In all activities, the property strives to be in harmony with the way of life and traditions of local communities, and endeavor to minimize its impact on the environment in every possible way by adhering to a common-sense code of responsible everyday environmental behavior.
- The resort is first and foremost a wellness retreat, offering transformational experiences and programs to guests who are on their wellbeing journey.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
