“Boutique Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

What a beautiful experience. We think extremely highly of Chedi Club. We genuinely were so happy with the room, food, and in particular the staff. Our Butler Bawanta exhibited genuine quality service, and every driver we had (for tours or just transportation) were a pleasure to communicate with. We travel a lot and we understand how difficult at even the finest resorts and hotels it is to find excellent staff and service so we greatly appreciated it. For example, we stayed at the St Regis in Nusa Dua after Chedi, and while the resort facilities and beach were stunning, and a high level of service was "offered", the service quality paled in comparison with the Chedi's service professionals.

What a stunning resort.

Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon!

We had the pleasure of staying at The Chedi in Ubud for over 5 days and it ranks as one of our best family vacations.

We'd stayed at The Chedi in Chiang Mai previously and therefore were looking forward to staying at the one in Ubud.

The booking process was very smooth and efficient. I booked our villa over the phone and had every query no matter how small, resolved via phone or email.

We were picked up at the airport and made our way in relative comfort to the resort which is about an hour from the airport.

The setting of the resort in the midst of the rice paddies is an immensely relaxing experience that I can not find the words to describe. Even though the rice crop had just been planted and wasn't lush, it was an amazing place to be in. We were fortunate that through out our stay, we had a lovely cool breeze.

The reception area is very simple and we waited there for our check in formalities. Mr. Spiller (the GM) came out to greet us and welcome us to the resort.

Our butler Mita showed us to our villa. We'd initially booked a one bedroom pool villa. I'd requested a sign of my daughter's name be put on the villa. To be honest, I was expecting a nice paper sign but what we saw instead was a beautiful sign in wood with her name carved on it.

The one bedroom pool villa was beautiful. The pool over looks the paddy fields and the view from the pool and the gazebo is truly tranquil. You have to shake yourself out to go anywhere. There is a small pantry behind the Gazebo and you could make coffee etc here if needed.

The room itself isn't particularly large. The bathroom has a slatted wood partition and if you are traveling with kids, then there is very little privacy. The bathroom also has a large outdoor bath tub for soaking.

I personally felt that for a couple, the one bedroom pool villa would be good but if you were traveling with a family, you'd find it cramped.

The next day, we found that a spa pool villa had become available and we decided to upgrade to it. The cost difference was small but the space we got in return was absolutely massive.

The spa pool villa felt newer. There is a large living area when you enter with a massive day bed off to one side. You could probably sleep 4 people in that day bed. Off to the right of the living area is the spa treatment room with two spa beds. To the left of the living area is the bedroom. Then you have the bathroom area which leads to the large pool and right next to the pool is the outdoor sunken tub. My daughter had a great time swimming in the pool and then going to soak in the bath tub before returning to the pool. With the extra space, we all had more room to spread out and relax.

The bathrooms in both villas were modern and worked well. I felt that the one in the spa villa worked a bit better. Water pressure for the rain showers was excellent and it warmed up quickly. The only quibble I had was that the shampoo/gel/conditioner containers did not make for easy use while showering.

While the one bedroom pool villa does have a lot of character as compared with the spa pool villa, I think the families would appreciate the space that the spa pool villa provides.

Our meals, starting with breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner were all at the main restaurant. We found this place to be an amazing location and not once were we tempted to stray out.

The best part of the restaurant is that it was open through the day allowing you to eat when you felt like.

Breakfast was a great start to the day with fresh croissants, eggs done the way you like, fresh juices and smoothies and awesome lattes to wash it all down. The home made preserves were absolutely amazing. I personally loved the watermelon jam with it's hint of star anise to be specially delightful.

Between our lunch and dinner outings at the restaurant, we tried almost everything on the menu and every single dish tasted great.

Sundown cocktails are served at the restaurant as well and it was wonderful to recline on those seats with a drink in the hand and watch the night roll in.

Bali and Ubud in particular are known for their food offerings, however, on this trip, we simply were too tempted by The Chedi's restaurant offerings.

We also went on a walking tour of the rice fields that our butler organised and attended the Kecak Dance within the resort's premises. We also requested for a tour around Ubud that was organized efficiently and to our requirements.

What really sets The Chedi apart is the absolutely flawless service provided by every single member of the resort. Our Butler Mita was graciousness personified. She took care of all our requirements including drawing a surprise bath for my daughter with her name spelt out with flower petals. From organizing our walk in the fields to managing our laundry and departure, Mita was amazing.

The staff at the restaurant were superb as well. Not only did they remember our preferences but it was also clear that they genuinely enjoyed what they were doing. Chef Dean often dropped by to check if all was well and offered to make meals to our preference.

Mr. Spiller was there to see us off as we reluctantly left this idyllic piece of heaven and returned home. Thank you Mr. Spiller and the amazing staff at The Chedi for a magnificent stay.

Came here on our honeymoon and were lucky enough to be upgraded to a spa pool villa. The villa was enormous and had its own spa massage room with two massage beds, outdoor decking area, bath and pool, large bedroom and bathroom and massive lounge with day bed, sofa and chairs. The villa also had a verandah at the front. The hotel overlooks paddy fields (in fact i think they belong to the hotel) and is in an oasis of calm on the outskirts of Ubud. If you like to be in the middle of the action, you might find it a bit 'peripheral' but it's only a 10-15 minute taxi ride into the centre (and would be a lot less if it weren't for the traffic). Beautiful food, incredible service from all the staff including our very lovely butler. We got a honeymoon cake and i also had a birthday card and cake from all the staff on my birthday which was our last day in the hotel. Amazing. Lovely spa in which we enjoyed a great mssage on our first day there. Tennis courts we didn't get the chance to use. A lovely hotel pool open all day. Never been anywhere before where they provide sun cream and face coolant spray for you free of charge! Bliss!

We hadn't stayed at a Chedi hotel before, but loved this piece of paradise up in Ubud. The staff could not have done more, from the airport transfers to transport into town, excellent food and drinks and a brilliant spa overlooking the paddy fields! The setting with only private villas is magical. We only stayed for 2 nights, but wish we could have stayed for more!

This was my second stay at this hotel, this time bring my mom for a visit to Ubud, and it was just as wonderful as the first stay. We were provided the same butler as the first stay, which I know was on purpose and I find to be a very thoughtful detail. The setting amongst the rice paddies is beautiful and very peaceful. This time we stayed in a villa that did not have a private pool, but as it is a small property, the main pool never had more than a few other people, so it felt very private.

The hotel is too far from the town of Ubud to walk there, so the hotel provides a drop off and pick up in town when needed. They will supply a mobile phone to be able to call them to pick you up.

There is absolutely no fault to find with this hotel and I would definitely return!

It doesn't get any better than the Chedi Club! Gorgeous grounds, amazing food and cocktails, gracious and attentive service. Included in the room rate is breakfast, tea with snacks, cocktail hour, minibar plus morning yoga and rides into Ubud and laundry each day. So a very good value as well
