“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Hotel at which we have stayed 7 times now in the last 10 years but never reviewed, sorry! When we don't visit (generally due to the timing of our main holiday) we compare everything as this is our favourite long haul destination. The people are so smiley, genuine and helpful which is one of the reasons the hotel is a true 5* The location is fantastic, so much choice restaurant / shop wise.The lobster malay curry is out of this world in the hotels restaurant. The spa is also good if you want 5* pampering. There have been some new hotels opening since we first visited which we have contemplated but rejected as on review first hand and third party they have not topped the Oberoi. We can't wait to return in 2013.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We stayed here on our honeymoon. It was fantastic. Pure luxury.

The hotel is tucked away from any hustle & bustle with incredible landscaped gardens, lovely fountains and statues everywhere - and beautiful architecture for every room. The location is also great - a 5 minute walk from Seminyak Square with various restaurants & bars around.

Rooms were great (we stayed in a garden Lanai). We also upgraded to a villa (with our own pool) for 1 night which was truly special, worth the money and the perfect end to our honeymoon.

The communal swimming pool was lovely. The staff provide you with complimetary water, sorbet and fruit skewers every day. Complimenary afternoon tea was also nice. It was a pleasure walking around the gardens and the beach. The restaurant was incredible - probably the best meals we had in Bali. The Spa was great too - we had a couples massage which lasted over 2 hours. The manager's cocktail drinks were a nice touch once a week. The staff were probably the most polite and helpful we have had in any hotel. The rooms were cleaned and tidied thoroughly.

Overall, it's an expensive hotel but worth the money. A truly beautiful hideaway that made our stay in Bali very special.

The location was tops here- right next to the Ku de TA. Right on Seminyak Beach, we were poolside and you could hear the waves in the background. Rooms are well appointed,comfortable but NOT that luxurious.. The service poolside is amazing, they even wipe your sunnies for you! The villas are meant to be stunning but we stayed in a room. Food is yummy..great hotel experience. Seminyak beach can be dirty and full of vendors.. Hotel has boogie boards and a life guard on staff. The spa was relaxing tuckd away in a lanai on one side of the property. Very relaxing break.

Ocean view room, every morning we woke up there was the sea to greet us, plus a daily newspaper. The quality of the services provided by the staff is the best I have experienced in Bali - and the world.
The room is big, and fancy, but has a Bali feel to it which is exactly what we were looking for. The bed could've been a little softer, but that is a personal thing.

The pool is the best way to spend an afternoon. Nothing is too much trouble.
Location is amazing (next to Ku De Ta) great shopping, gorgeous Seminyak Beach.
We will stay here again for sure.

They make you feel like a king. Very centrally located but still very peaceful , close to the beach, shopping , restaurants , clubs . Very helpful staff. Very nice rooms (cottages) . Clean ,modern with local touch. Excellent service. You won't regret it.

Room Tip: Sea view cottages are the best

The charming resort is located on Legian beach and it was built in 1970's. Great hospitality: outstanding service in the restauarant, at the pool or at the reception. At breakfast, the staff welcomed us personally by name from the second morning on. An a la carte breakfast is served with a choice of fresh fruits, pastries, dairy products and a variety of hot dishes. We also enjoyed the Thursday evening bbq of grilled meats and seafood with gamelan music and dance performance.

The only problem in our villa with a direct view of the ocean was the noise of the ocean waves at night; due to the pyramid structure of the roof this noise is amplified (the roof works as an audio-amplifier). Lanais farther away from the beach may be more quiet but they may be less cooler than the villas close to the beach..
We suggest the Ultimo restaurant on Jalan Kayu Aya, where we enjoyed an excellent western style dinner and we returned here another evening..

Room Tip: Lanais may be quieter than villas with the noise of the ocean waves but the villas offer more space...

I am delighted to know that you have enjoyed your stay and the services, environment, style and setting of The Oberoi, Bali met with your expectations and that the magic of Bali and this historic resort in Seminyak has made you say " charming resort".

Unfortunately, regret that the villa assigned to you were ocean view, where you were disturbed by noise of ocean waves at night.

It's hard to find a place in Bali that is not for hooneymooners (and not Kuta)!, the staff is just fantastic, they called us by name the whole time, they will always make their best to pamper you and make you smile.., even the guy that polishes your sunglasses. Only downside is the bed has a big wood frame where I kept hitting becase the beds are high. Definitly recommend... There were some families (I don't like screaming kids) but the parents kept them quiet.. :))) Breakfast is great!!
