So there we were, merrily riding along on our motorbike, when disaster struck in the form of a gravelly corner:
This is my oh-bugger-no-more-surfing-for-me face…
Luckily a sprained ankle was the only casualty (which for a motorbike accident is really pretty jammy I guess), but it meant that I was stuck on crutches for a week. We had been planning on driving all the way down to the island of Flores to go see the Komodo Dragons, and had to change our plans somewhat which was a shame, but it meant we got to know Lombok and Bali really well on the upside.
Anyhoo, so luckily we were already booked in for a couple of nights at Maya Ubud directly following the crash, which meant I could lounge/hobble around in luxury! This is another sponsored post (as we were kindly extended another discount!) but all views and opinions are genuine.
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the staff and management could not have been more helpful and friendly. I was chauffeur driven around the hotel grounds in my own little golf buggy for 3 days straight, had endless people fussing over me to make sure my leg was ok, and was basically pretty much bowled over by the entire experience. It was for sure the best service we’ve received at any hotel we’ve ever stayed at.
We were upgraded to a beautiful pool villa, which was a looovely place to be forced to hang out in! Feast your peepers people.
The highlight for me was the bathroom, with its insanely gorgeous teak wood and hammered nickel wash basin/bathtub/accents:
I thought the tangerine accent wall was a smidge random but it still worked well with the scheme:
Yet another amazeballs floaty canopy bed:
And a bunch of really interesting furniture too – check out that beautiful daybed.
The outdoor area – yep, my butt spent quite a bit of time parked on that lounger…
The whole hotel had lots of brass light fittings, tabletops etc., which of course I hated:
And all in all it was a pretty delightful, restful few days – would really highly recommend Maya Ubud to anybody looking for some down time in a gorgeous setting.
But the main design takeaway from it for me, was the textural hammered metal in the bathroom. I could not get enough of it:
So I thought today that I would have a little looky for some examples to show y’all.
What do you think peeps? Which one is your fave?
