Best ever part 2 honeymoon experience! ”
My husband and I spent 3 nights at Mahamaya Resort. Getting to Mahamaya is a bit of a trek! We had to switch boats at Gili T to get to Gili Meno. At Gili Meno, the boat stopped a bit away from the shore & we had to walk a short distance in the water to get to the resort. It's an exhausting journey but the minute you step foot onto the island all your frustrations magically disappear. The beachfront view of Mahamaya is breathtaking!The resort is beautiful, it's got a boutique resort feel to it-unpretentious and cosy. We stayed at one of the pool front rooms and while the bedroom itself is slightly small, its just nice for a couple. The layout is very well done & the outdoor shower is a nice touch! They even provide you with water coolers in each room which gives you the option of both hot & cold water (no more pesky kettles!) The 3 highlights of the place would be: 1. Location- best spot on this tiny island away from the crowds and you have your own private beach. The water is great (when it's low tide but beware of the corals) and snorkeling was wonderful there. We saw tiny jellyfish, sea snakes (scary but awesome!) and a huge variety of fishes. Walking out is a bit of a pain due to the corals but once you're in its perfect! 2. Food- every single meal we had was flawless. They use the freshest ingredients and it was so delicious that we wiped our plate clean with our greediness each meal. They make the best local Lombok fresh chilli sambal ever! 3. Staff- the staff were the real highlight of this resort. From ten moment we arrived till we left they made us feel so special and comfortable and made us feel at home. The owner is one of the nicest persons we've ever met and every single person who worked there was lovely- especially Dika & Achi. They made our stay perfect. This place is truly a hidden gem. while I would hate for it to be swarmed with tourists, it is an experience you could never forget. Being there transports you to a whole new world!
Excellent boutique hotel”
We spent almost 3 weeks in Bali and Lombok, and our trip to Mahamaya on Gili Meno was the highlight for us for sure. The rooms were super clean, comfortable and a good size. The price included free bikes, snorkeling gear and kayaks, and an la carte breakfast was plentyful, and there was a buffet of fruit, yogurt, and Indonesian food if the a la carte menu did not satisfy your hunger. The restaurant is located in front of the hotel right on the beach, and has the most spectacular, unobstructed view for sunset drinks and dinner. The food was at an extremely high level, and among the best that we had during our 3 week trip. There are two pools located behind the hotel, in the courtyard surround by rooms. A great spot to relax under an umbrella in the shade. The staff went above and beyond, and I mean all the staff, from reception, to restaurant staff, to housekeeping. Everyone in the hotel addressed us by our names, and the whole experience was personal. This kind of attention to detail is what puts Mahamaya above and beyond the other boutique hotels in Gili Meno which we visited for food. We had 3 short nights here, and our only regret is that we didnt stay longer. We were worried we would get bored on the island, but the beach and hotel lends itself to relaxing, with the option of grabbing a bike, kayak or snorkeling equipment to explore both on and off land. There is a small coral reef only meters from the beach and hotel which and non-confident swimmer can access. The water is crystal clear and you can even stand quite far out for those who are not confident in the water. As you can see, we enjoyed ourselves.
We were initially booked into another hotel on Gili Meno but it didn't have air con and we didn't think we'd survive without it. A day before we arrived we switched to Mahamaya and we're so glad we did. It's a really wonderful hotel in every respect. We stayed for 4 wonderful days/nights. The hotel is new (1 year old?) and is very modern in design. Don't go expecting traditional Lombok or Balinese accommodations. We had a pool suite, which is actually a good-sized hotel room with an attached bathroom and an outdoor shower. All were fantastic. We had a few meals in the area nearby and also had two dinners at Mahamaya. Both dinners were outstanding. Breakfast is also excellent, with a good variety of choices and enough food for us. Dinner prices are certainly higher than elsewhere on the island, but we felt they were well worth the cost. These were as good of meals as we've had anywhere. The staff at Mahamaya is really outstanding. The English and Indonesian owners/resident managers have done a great job of selecting and training their staff members and it shows. All the staff in every area of the resort were totally dedicated to being of the highest level of service. They were friendly, gracious and enjoyable to be around. Every time we returned after a walk, snorkel trip, or a meal elsewhere we were greeted with a warm "Welcome home!". Suffice to say, we highly recommend Mahamaya and will definitely be back.
Lovely resort with great food”
We chose to stay in Gili Meno this time to avoid the crowds of Gili Trawangan and we were supremely happy with that decision. And Mahamaya was probably the best on the island as we walked around the entire island and this seemed to be the coolest experience. Can see lovely sunsets and background of Bali's volcanos. The beach is pretty however unfortunately during our stay the beach was covered with dead coral which is slightly uncomfortable to walk on. not the hotel's fault though, its a part of nature. The reef in front of the hotel is dead for the first 25metres or so but it opens upto a beautiful coral reef with many kinds of coral, fish, and other sea creatures. The best thing about the resort, since in Gili meno you tend to stay in the resort most of the time as there is not many attraction around it, the food turned out to be really good not just by the standards of the remote island but by any standards. Which is great so if you stay there for a few days you would not get bored of the food and will make the stay extra special. although I would recommend the management to look into the breakfast options, they could massively improve the quality and flavour to be at par with their a-la-carte food. only cons are that the rooms do not have any view or even windows.
Honeymoon, August 2014”
We stayed at Mahamaya for 7 nights for our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing. All the staff are so welcoming and they really try to help with anything you need. In particular Taufik was lovely and so attentive with his service to us during our stay. The food at the hotel is gorgeous, some of the best meals we have ever had. The menu offers a good choice for everyone and all the meals we had tasted amazing. My favourite was the King Prawn Tikka Masala special one night - lovely!! We ate at the hotel restaurant every night except one. We thought we would try another restaurant on the island to see what it was like, and it didn't live up to the standards of Mahamaya, so we ate at Mahamaya for the rest of our stay. The beach outside the hotel is very beautiful and there are great views. It is a coral beach though so you definitely need some reef shoes or fins to walk out into the water. The snorkelling outside the hotel is really good as well. The new pool area and spa is really nice, very quiet area to sit away from the beach, especially if you want to get some shade from the sun. I had a free 10 minute massage in the spa which was really good. Getting to the island is a bit of a trek, we came from Ubud in Bali and caught the fast boat over to Gili Meno which was a bit chaotic at the port in Bali, but once we were on the island it was amazing, we didn't want to leave! This resort is great if you really want to get away from it all and relax on the beach, eat good food, and have amazing service from lovely staff. I couldn't recommend this hotel enough.

Truly a paradise”
Mahamaya does keeps up to its namesake, The Ultimate Paradise. Having spent the first 2 nights of our honeymoon on the happening Gili Trawangan, my wife and I were looking forward to spend some romantic and peaceful time in Gili Meno, and by choosing Mahamaya we achieved exactly what we wanted. The hotel staff was very accomodating, friendly, helpful and nice to us throughout our stay there. Our room (beach-front villa) was exceptional, the staff has arranged for some romantic decorations in the room to greet us during our arrival. Snorkelling points are just a couple of metres away from Mahamaya's beach, which is truly awesome. The food there was superb, we even had a specially-prepared romantic dinner by the sea, many thank for the wonderful staff at Mahamaya who went out of their way to arrange this. To sum up, we felt exactly at home at Mahamaya and definitely will come back here.
A little stay in paradise”
My stay at Mahamaya was excellent. I added this vacation on the end of a work trip from Jakarta. Due to this I traveled to Gili Meno alone. Upon arriving at Mahamaya I was greated with a warm welcome. The staff at Mahamaya went above and beyond at each encounter. Each night the resort has a new dinner special and each night it was FANTASTIC! I eat at many wonderful restaurants all around the world and the Mahamaya definitely does not disappoint. The island is very small so it is easy and quick to get anywhere. If you love to snorkel or dive the Mahamaya is located in front of the two great locations. I was able to see a baby silver ray during my stay.
Delightful Property and Incredible Meals!”
We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful island of Gili Meno. Do bring water/sand shoes for the beach as it is a white, broken up coral beach. Snorkeling was fun on our own in front of Mahamaya, but do take a snorkeling trip arranged by hotel - a fun day. The meals at Mahamaya were some of the best in Indonesia. The room was clean and very nice to have our own fresh water tank in our room. For small fee, they even helped arrange flights from Bali and transfer to hotel, involving car and boat. Very trustworthy. Thank you, Achie!! Best property on Gili Meno!
A relaxed placement with great team of staff”
We had a great stay at the Mahamaya. The placement of the hotel is amazing with the beach just outside. Well in the water one is almost guaranteed to spot sea turtles when snorkeling just in front of the hotel. One can really tell that the staff has loads of fun together and they really care about making you visit count. We had a couple of great dinners at the beach restaurant with great food, the staff also stood for the entertainment with a fireshow. The staff did give great help with activities around the island and had good ideas for lunch and dinner when we wanted to discover what the remainder parts of Gili Meno had to offer. The sweet water no chemicals pool outside the suites is great for taking a refreshing dip when comming black after the beach. In summary Mahamaya was the best hotel during our honeymoon trip to Bali.
The best hotel in the gili islands”
Mahamaya was an outstanding place to stay in gili meno and better then any other on gili t aswell. The scenery is beautiful we saw turtles snorkeling just out the front. The hotel itself is also very beautiful and looks breath taking at night especially during sunset. The food was excellent and reasonably priced considering the how great it was. Most of all the staff were extremely friendly and professional and provided the best service we have experienced during our travels throughout many different countries and their English was outstanding! We absolutely loved our stay and were so sad to leave after only two nights. We would definitely like to return and would recommend to all to stay you will not regret it only regret will be that you will eventually have to leave.
The Best Hotel on the Island”
Gili Meno is the quietes of the 3 Gili in Lombok. Still no clean and luxeries hotel there, and Mahamaya did fill the spot. It's definitely 5 star worth hotel. Good service, food is delicious. The only downside is this hotel is under construction during my visit, the hot water is down almost the whole day. Overall, this is a very recommended hotel on Gili Meno.
More than Expected!”
We've had a great experience at the Mahamaya Resort. In our opinion the best choice for Gili Meno. The environment is excellent for romantic moments as the place demands to take moments of relaxation. The location of the hotel is very good on Gili Meno for persons who like to snorkel. The coral could be better but the presence of sea turtles is unrivaled :) As mentioned the sea has coral so no sand slopes. The Staff of Mahamaya is great as well is the owner. For Diner or Lunch we would recommend the other restaurants near the hotel. We've experienced unforgettable moments on Gili Meno!
The best accommodation in Gili Meno”
We had a short stay in Meno. Our 1st time travelling to Lombok. This is so far d only place that caught our eyes in Meno. Nice n comfy place esp if u need a quiet getaway, catch up some sleep or a romantic getaway. Hotel is situated on a white coral beach, like the other reviewers mention, please wear a wet shoe or footwear. The hotel provide sea activities like canoe n snorkeling equipment, (u can rent equipment fr d neighbouring accomodation/shop as their snorkeling equipment not working well). This is Gili Meno, a small Island in Lombok, so do not expect a 5* treatment or compare to others in mainland. When u settle ur check-in hired a Cidomo to go around d island. Find a nice beach or spot there to chill or swim. U can liase with the cidomo handler to pick u up later. Water is precious so wake up earlier n plan and take turn to take shower, coz they need to refill ur tank. Food n service is good. Great training given to the staff. Friendly and personalise.
It was just m y daughter and myself taking this trip. We stayed on Gili Meno last year (our first time) but in a different resort. ) Mahamaya was outstanding! The staff was wonderful and friendly and helpful. The food was so good we ate every meal at Mahamaya, and did't even care to go to other restaurants on the island. Service with a smile was prevalent during our entire stay. We loved it and wouldn't stay anywhere else on the island ever again!
Great value luxury hotel, the best on Gili Meno”
This is probably the most luxurious hotel on Gili Meno island. If you're the type of traveler who wants luxurious, modern, amenities in the middle of nature, then this is the place to stay. The food and drinks at the hotel is also top shelf. Vacationers staying at other hotels regularly, and wisely, dine at Mahamaya during their stay. The pool in the hotel has slightly salty water which is great for swimming. It doesn't have that chlorinated smell/feel and feels great on the eyes. The dive shop close by is run by great people and the hotel is close to fantastic dive sites and snorkeling sites. The only downside is that the beach facing the hotel has sharp corals. That side also has the better dive sites though. The other side of the island has the smoother, sandy beaches, but the diving and snorkeling on that side isn't as good.
Fantastic boutique resort with great service!”
Our stay has been fantastic at Mahamaya. Not easy to get to as we came from Bali (ferry to Gili Air, then boat to Gili Meno, then horse carriage ride), but the location right at the beach is great (coral beach so need to wear flip flops), very peaceful and relaxing 3 days! The rooms are big, simple and modern with a great outdoor shower. Sometimes there was no water for a few minutes due to the islands Eco policy but we had no problems with that. What really stood out was the amazing staff, who are super friendly and make you feel like you have known them for a long time. Special thanks to Fi (sorry if I spelt the name wrong) who made our stay simply perfect! The food was fantastic which we did not expect on such a remote island. Delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. We will be back!
Paradise on earth”
After having a phantastic 3 week trip across Indonesia, Mahamaya put the frosting on the cake! Not only did it meet all our expectations to the fullest, the resort topped them all.On this remote island we had a wonderful quiet and relaxing week. Mahamaya is located right at the beach with beautiful turquoise water. The suits are very spacious, comfortable and clean. The bathroom is terrific and the highlight is the outdoor shower. But Mahamaya convienced us not just with its chic styling but also with its ecological concept. They really care about their Island. The food was excellent and very fresh. You can taste that the cook stands to his word: if I cannot get it fresh it doesn't come on the table. After having the first happy hour drink we couldn't resist the invitation from the bartender to try some of his other cocktail creations. Last but not least a few words to the team from Mahamaya: We have never met better staff. Very professional without being stif, extremely polite, open, always smiling. They gave us the feeling of home away from home (thank you guys, we miss you!). Dave, Jo, Ali, you have built a very special resort that is worthy of the name - Mahamaya - the ultimate paradise. Thanks to all of you! For sure we will meet again. Take care, Manu & Farley, Inga and Dorit
The best hotel ever had”
I'm sure MAHAMAYA Resort hotel is the best hotel I've ever chosen. The staffs are so friendly and attentive that I cannot forget their faces. Also I'll never forget the sunset I saw there. I'll visit MAHAMAYA Resort again if I have an opportunity to visit Gili Meno again.
Amazing staff, relaxed vibe & the best sunset view”
My mother joined me for our stay at Mahamaya and the staff treated us so well! We had breakfast & dinner on the beach every day and the food was really good, the best on the island, but the menu got a little repetitive after 3 nights. We walked all over Gili Meno and Mahamaya was definitely the best place to stay. Rooms were clean, A/C was cold, water was hot.. All in all a GREAT stay and I would definitely go back.
We stayed a night in Meno after 3 nights in Trawangan, just to experience the peace and tranquil we have read about. I choose Mahamaya for a beach front experience and also the high review on their restaurant. It's advisable to take the horse taxi ride to the villa as it's quite a walk in, tho it's lovely if you have no luggage to pull along. Will be about 80k INR. The beaches on the east side of the island which we covered on foot is deserted and private. Great for some peace and tranquil. The beach front villa we got is alright, everything is working fine except the toilet light which we only realised later in the evening. Personally, I usually prefer my beach front to be more private and smack by the coast. Their beachfront is by the main passageway, where traffic, tho not much at all passes by in front. And the coast is about 40m from the villa. Restaurant is nice, go for wine rather than cocktails. I love the lap pool and surely one night is too short for me to feel the whole experience Mahamaya and Gili Meno have to offer. I will come back, but maybe, will try their other room options.
