Faultless. I never thought I would say that about a hotel, but you can see why it is rated the Ni1 hotel in Bali on Tripadvisor.
This is a small luxury hotel that defines the very best in service, ambience, food, relaxation and management. Led for the last year by Simon Spiller - definitely a GM to watch in the future - his charm and quiet authority are evident everywhere. No detail escapes his attention, yet the staff are clearly happy, beautifully trained and flourishing under his leadership. He told me there were improvements to be made, but I couldn't see where - at least from an experience perspective.
The service is superb - omin-present yet not invasive. With only 20 villas and a staff-to-villa ratio of 4:1 you know you are going to be pampered. Your arrival, your check-in, your vila/suite preparation is faultless. You are assigned a personal butler who looks after your every need - from escorting on walks around the local rice fields, to servicing the villa to bringing you room service. Nothing is too much trouble. And, critically, they have the perfect balance between attentiveness and familiarity.
The property is quite large, so there is a feeling of space and serenity.
Food under Chef Dean is a joy - his enlarging of the organic vegetable and edible flower garden is evident in the taste and beauty of his dished, He even smokes his own smoke salmon.
Really whether here for a night or a week (and after the first night you will wish it was a week) you will fall in love with the Chedi Club and the staff. Forget the Oberoi, the Bulgari or the Four Seasons, this is small Luxury hotel experience at its best.
Perfect for honeymooners, couples or singles. Less ideal for families as you'll feel guilty about spoiling the serenity!
