“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

My husband and I stayed here on the night before our wedding and wedding night. The staff were very attentive and took great care of us. The room was flawless and the grounds were beautiful (we had honeymoon pictures taken in the gardens). Dinner at the restaurant was superb. Highly recommend it!

I don't give this my 'best hotel ever' rating lightly. What makes a hotel (in my opinion) is it's staff. This hotel has the best employees I've ever had the pleasure of meeting in my life, hand down. Very courteous, kind, extremely helpful and always smiling. We even met the GM of the hotel who wanted to know if we needed anything and inquired on our stay. The hotel has an authentic Balinese feel to it which made it all the more nice in comparison to other more modern-contemporary hotels on the island. The rooms are large and very clean, so are the bathrooms. The food at the hotel is fantastic, from the breakfast, to the lunch options and of course the dinner (at the fine dining restaurant) which we ate at twice during out stay since it was that good.

If I ever get a chance to go back to Bali, I'll be staying at this hotel again and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an authentic Balinese experience.

Room Tip: Our room had a partial sea-view which was just fine.

This is simply a stand-out hotel in a beautiful location. We were well taken care of from arrival to departure. The room was fantastic, in one of the lanais dotted around the immaculate grounds. We were also incredibly well fed. Breakfast was amazing; so much choice and (for once) not a buffet with everything prepared to order. We also chose to dine on 4 nights out of 7 in the hotel's own restaurant. The Executive Chef presides over one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten in (and I eat in a lot!). But the thing that makes this hotel so special - beyond the location, the rooms, the facilities and the wonderful food - is the staff. I've never seen so many smiles, all apparently genuine. Nothing was too much trouble, not even removing a gecko from our room at 11.30 at night! It's a very long way from London, yet I suspect we will return before too long.

Room Tip: We had the cheapest room (garden facing lanai) and it was outstanding.

Dear Dude 2305,

Thank you for posting your review on TripAdvisor after your visit to The Oberoi, Bali.

I am sorry that your room had a bit of an odour. Sometimes the thatched roofs on the authentic Balinese buildings do emit a damp odour after heavy rains. I am glad that you enjoyed the swimming pool, cuisine and location. Sometimes ocean currents bring debris ashore in the wet rainy season. We do employ a full time crew to kep the area surrounding The Oberoi clean and the stretch of beach in from of the resort free of debris.

Thank you for having stayed with us, and we all look forward to the opportunity of again welcoming you back to The Oberoi, Bali.

We are already looking forward to returning to the Oberoi; and we only just arrived home.

What strikes you when you arrive is, firstly, how big the resort is and, secondly, how few rooms/villas there are nestled among fastidiously kept gardens. There is not a hint of hustle and bustle at what is an amazingly peaceful oasis in the middle of Seminyak. There is always a place for you by the pool, at breakfast or at the very social afternoon tea.

The staff are the jewel in the crown of the Oberoi. No request is to small or any trouble at all, the resort hums as a result. I would rate the service overall as nothing short of exceptional, not for Bali, but globally.

The food is also a highlight. When travelling we generally don't take breakfasts at where we are staying, opting to explore what is on offer out and about. On the recommendation of a friend we took the breakfast when we booked, and were extremely glad we did. Delicious would be an understatement, made even better by the view out over the beach and the light sea breeze. An awesome way to start the day.

Overall, the Oberoi is a class act in every respect. We can't wait until our next stay.

Room Tip: There a no bad rooms, no short cuts with the design means all the rooms are awesome.

The grande dame of Seminyak delivers blue chip service in a hip resort. Other hotels on this stretch may be newer and glossier but this is the real deal. It was designed by the same architect as the Four Seasons and having stayed there I can see the similarities. Traditional lanais nestle in private gardens overlooking an uncluttered stretch of beach with a nightly ringside seat of the famous Bali sunset. The restaurant is great, the spa is blissful and the staff are exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble for these lovely people so lie back and enjoy the special touches which even include someone to polish your sunglasses by the pool...heaven

The Oberoi is a luxurious and quiet haven, an escape from the frenetic pace outside the resort walls. From the friendly welcome upon arrival to the exceptional service throughout our stay, we were impressed with every aspect of the resort. The grounds are beautiful. The staff is attentive and very friendly. Our private lanai was intimate and exceptional; the bedding was top rate. The food service, from breakfast to romantic dinners to room service, was outstanding.
