Our favourite rooms
With its stunning views over two different sections of the bay, Signature Villa 221 is the one to ask for. The Ocean Panoramic Villas have wonderful 180-degree vistas of waves and wiggling palm fronds.
Made from black lava stone, the main communal infinity pool offers an ideal vantage point over the hotel’s long, white-sand beach.
A range of Omorovicza spa treatments are offered in three thatched-roof, open-air pavilions. Choose from three styles of massage and five facial treatments, including the ultra-luxe Gold Après Soleil Facial. Free morning yoga and qi gong sessions are offered, and there's a range of kids' treatments too.
Bring a snorkel. There’s a reef, teeming with the sort of primary-coloured sealife that you would normally only see in an aquarium, right in front of the hotel. Maia can also arrange scuba-diving excursions for an extra cost.
Stays in Maia Signature VIllas also include champagne, in-villa barbecues, early check-in and late check-out, daily private yoga classes and one in-villa mani-pedi.
Little ones are welcome in the Maia Signature Villa, where 24-hour babysitting is available for €30 an hour. All-inclusive rates are from €265 a child (5–15) a day. Maia’s free kids' programme includes excursions, spa treatments and swimming lessons.
