“Luxury in a serene and tranquil setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The Chedi club is the most amazing place to relax. The villa accommodation has all the comforts of home and your butler takes care of your every whim in an unobtrusive manner. The staff are friendly, competent and helpful. The main pool area has amazing views of the distant mountains and the local wildlife is extraordinary. You can take your complimentary afternoon tea and early evening cocktails in various settings and the quality of all meals is excellent. We really enjoyed the Kecak Dance evening and we felt the experience was very authentic. The courtesy transport to and from the airport was a treat and our driver was so patient after our flight had been delayed for 3 hours. The unique setting of this small resort is truly magical. The general manager and guest relations department deserve a special mention as they took a personal interest in ensuring you had a wonderful stay. The office staff arranged onward flights for us in advance and this proved to be a godsend as it is difficult to book on-line domestic flights in Indonesia.
Thank you for a wonderful experience - world class and exceeded our expectations

We stayed 3 nights from the 8/1/2013 and after 27 Visits to Bali, this is the best hotel we have stayed. Thank you to Simon and his wonderful staff who welcomed us and looked after us. Our butler Yuni is the most wonderful person you would want to look after you. Nothing was too much for her. Every night Yuni would check on us to make sure everything was ok. The suite is just beautiful, the pool and the view is breathtaking, the restaurants food, service and location is excellent. The grounds are the most beautifully kept that I have seen. The paddy field walk is fantastic and I thank Yuni for taking me on that. Afternoon tea was delicious, the free mini bar came in handy as did the home made whiskey and vodka. We would definitely stay again and definitely recommend you to stay at this lovely resort. Thank you again to Simon and all his wonderful staff.

Room Tip: The Suite was plentiful enough for us.

We stayed at The Chedi Club for the last 4 days of our wonderful Bali honeymoon. I had read all the reviews on trip advisor prior to arriving and boy, I was not disappointed. The hotel is set amongst rice paddies and has such a tranquil feel. We had a Spa Villa and included in this are daily 90 min spa treatments, it was the ultimate in pampering for my husband and I. The Villa is fantastic, so so spacious and so immaculately kept. Our Butler Bawa was a star. He had such great attention to detail and was always one step ahead of us. Thank you to all the wonderful staff at Chedi, everyone is so welcoming and we can't wait to come back. Believe all the reviews, this hotel is definitely #1!

My partner and I went to The Chedi club for 3 days and then to another 5 Star hotel in Uluwatu for 3 days. I must say the experience at the Chedi Club is beyond outstanding. It definitely competes at the level of an Aman resort, but at a price point that is much lower. Our butler Mati was amazing. She was courteous and always thought ahead anticipating our every need. She arranged for private drivers and tours that were all excellent. She met us immediately upon our return to the resort. I just can't say enough about her professionalism and thoughtfulness. The pool villa that we stayed at was amazing with lots of authentic touches and all of the luxury conveniences you would ever want.

As for the grounds, they are stunning and extremely well maintained. I couldn't believe how all the staff knew your name and greeted you wherever they saw you. It is all of the small things that make you really feel that this place is special. From the dinner in the dining room to the in Villa dining experience everything beat our expectations. The crispy duck special dinner was nice as this is a Balinese specialty. For us the dinners we had on the other night were actually even better. We went to the Four Seasons in Ubud for dinner one night and were very disappointed by the quality of food there and wish we would have stayed at the Chedi for dinner.

This place has only 20 villas so it never seems busy and you rarely see people other than at dinner. We were there just after the harvest of the rice which at first I thought was a major let down since all of the pictures were with the lush green rice paddies, but actually enjoyed the amazing reflections of the resort and surroundings from the standing water in the rice paddies. Just a brilliantly designed and authentic property. We'll be back for sure!

Tip: Request Pool Villa #9 It is right on the edge of the rice field and has unobstructed views of the fields and restaurant. It also points away so the pool is open in the back which is quite nice.

Room Tip: Select Pool Villa #9. It has the best location in the resort with private views of the rice fields.

Stayed at The Chedi Club in a pool villa for our 30th anniversary. A really beautiful place in the middle of rice paddies. Perks include a butler whoever you need him, free afternoon tea, free mini bar & tea/coffee making facilities, free laundry and a lot of perks on the romance package we booked. Last night had dinner in the middle of the rice paddies for our anniversary, a very special treat. Food is excellent, with last night being Michelin level quality from Dean Nor a wonderful chef from Singapore. The only slight negative is that the spa charge Mandiri level prices, but their staff are competent but not excellent as one expects for such prices. Best to get the free shuttle to Ubud and get a spa treatment there for 10% of the price (we used one called Padma Hastaa Spa off a small side lane off Monkey Forest Road; basic but excellent.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking your time to review our property. We are glad to learn that your stay has been enjoyable, and I would like to use this opportunity to wish you a happy belated 30th anniversary. I will definitely pass your gracious comment to Dean, our chef.

Regarding the prices of the treatments in our spa compared to some spas in Ubud Center, I agree that our prices are definitely higher. This is due to the products which we are using. We only use high quality, high end, organic products, some of them have to be imported from Europe. Apart from these we use local organic massage oils and essential oils as well which are of equally high quality.

Regarding the treatments itself, i have passed on your comment to our Spa team and will make sure to intensify our trainings to make sure they are up to our guests expecations.

I thank you sincerely for bringing this up, so we can move forward and improve our service. I do hope that I will be able to welcome you again to The Chedi Club Ubud in the near future.

Kind regards,

Simon and the management team

Nestled in an exclusive estate surrounded by lush greenery and verdant rice fields, The Chedi Club at Tanah Gajah in Ubud, Bali offers one of the finest luxury retreats in the world. With 20 elegantly appointed villas and suites gracefully scattered over a 5-hectare expanse of rural landscaping, privacy is of the essence.

Room Tip: Plunge into the One Bedroom Pool Villa’s for a proper swim. No mere dipping here.

If you are like me you have become a little sceptical of hotels and resorts whose reviews just seem too good! So it was with some apprehension that we arrived at The Chedi Club. The good news is that the Chedi is all that that the reviewers say it is. Set in tranquil and beautiful gardens surrounded by working rice paddies you leave the world behind and are transported to a Balinese paradise. The villa's, the resort amenities and the staff make Chedi a special place. My wife and I were at Chedi celebrating my 60th birthday, everything was done to make it a truly memorable occasion. The dinner prepared by Chef Dean, the birthday decorations prepared by staff were just fantastic. The discreet but detailed service of our butler Dana was all that you could want,with a sense of fun thrown in at no charge. Chedi allows you to feel the Balinese culture while supported by all the comforts that we deem necessary. A truly special place and well worth it's *1 ranking.

Room Tip: Pool Villa 6
