From the moment we landed we were greeted and escorted through customs to our private chauffeured car and driven to Maia Luxury Hotel, which we visited last year and knew that we would be getting first class treatment. We were escorted to our beach villa which was a different one to the one we had last year which we found...

As owner of Explore Inc in the USAI have been to Maia 3 times over the years and it only gets better.. the service is unparalleled, food diverse and fresh, villas beyond belief. There is no place like it on earth! As a tour operator it is always my #1 choice for the Indian Ocean.

Had a very nice week at Maia. Very private, very nice beach and very good in villa service. Villas are spacy, comfortable, even with two kids and in good shape. We never joined the TecTec restaurant, which seemed rather dark and some stuff is not close enough to client or lack basic knowledge (bar, cocktails). Spa is definitely to recommend,...

I stayed in April with a friend. We had beachfront villas next to each other connected via a little path through the garden. Everything about this stay was perfection. It really was one of the most lovely times I've had at a hotel. With its gorgeous, soft, white sand, the quiet beach was great for swimming or relaxing. And we...

Maia opened almost ten years ago and it is hardly surprising, therefore, that some of the bathroom fittings, for example, are beginning to look a bit dated. It is clear, however, that the property has been subject to a rigorous programme of maintenance over time; each of the 30 villas is absolutely immaculate, as is the entire estate, and the...

Let me repeat my title for more clarity. While I am giving Maia only 4 stars, instead of 5, I am basing that solely on value for money and what came with the experience. The experience is a must do if you can splurge for this type of Hotel. I have never done ANYTHING like this, but we decided to...
