The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, Ubud, Bali – a GHM hotel
Ranked #5 of 199 Hotels in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 31, 2012

This hotel is a very good representative of what Bali offers - scerenity. We loved its lush plants, beautiful statutes of Genesha and friendly staff. We were there for our anniversary celebration and our pool villa was the perfect place for it. We stayed there for 5 nights and had no desire to go outside of the hotel! The friendly and efficient staff gave us a romantic dinner in the middle of the rice field which we highly recommend for special occasions. The only weakness is the lack of choice in food at the restaurant although it offers great breakfast options.

We booked Chedi Club for a three night stay after our time in the orangutan sanctuary in Borneo. We were looking for a bit of pampering after our rustic stay at Rimba Lodge. I believe this hotel is WAY too pricey for what it offers. People were generally kind, and food was well prepared. Breakfasts were very nice, though no better than we had had elsewhere in Indonesia. Our less than 48 hours there, for which we paid for three full nights, were NOT a good value. That being said, it is a spectacular, idyllic and extremely beautifully designed setting. And if you have ANY mobility issues, please stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally good. Most of the variables have to do with square footage or proximity to po...

TheChediClubUbud, General Manager at The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, Ubud, Bali – a GHM hotel, responded to this reviewResponded March 29, 2012

Dear Guests,

Thank you for your review and we do value and appreciate your feedback. We regret that you considered our property to be not the best value for your money; we constantly work on improving Club benefits, and in terms of Ubud and surrounding properties of a similar standing we do consider ourselves to be very much competitive.

Regarding the mobility issues we appreciate your bringing this to our attention, and would be very grateful to have a few more details on where you thought access was lacking, so that this can be fixed as soon as possible. Most of our pathways are flat without steps, and with our second entrance we can bypass the steps at the main entrance. We're currently coming up with a wheelchair-accessible restaurant entrance that has three steps up. If you noticed any other areas during your stay here that could be improved in terms of accessibility, please do let us know at gm@thechediclububud.com.

Regarding the room tip, here I must supply a little more information on our rooms -- we have suite villas, pool villas, spa villas and a two-bedroom estate, spread over our 5 hectares of open space. Square footage depends only on the villa type, and since the pool and spa are centrally located, it wouldn't take more than a minute at most to walk between them and the farthest villa.

Thank you again for your review and we look forward to getting any details from you that could resolve our mobility and access issues.

With kind regards,

The Management Team

Stayed for 3 nights at the Chedi with my wife recently and had a superb stay. The room was fantastic. We went for the spa room option which included a 90 min massage a day in the adjoining spa room facility. There are plenty of little touches about our stay here that made it excellent, but what I would really like to say about this hotel is that although it is certainly not cheap, it still represents very good value relative to other similar offerings in/around Ubud in my opinion. Attention to detail and service is superb.
Is there was one small gripe I suppose it would be that although you are offered complimentary drops in and out of Ubud (with a small mobile phone given you to call and arrange for collection) but for slightly longer trips you aren't given an alternative to the hotel transport being offered (as far as I was aware anyway). Booking longer trips through the hotel guarantees that you have a decent car and friendly driver but expect to pay upwards of 300% of what it might cost through a metered service. Saying that, at the end of our stay we were offered transport to our next destination which wasn't something that the hotel necessarily needed to do. Overall I would very highly recommend this hotel as a spot to base yourself while in Ubud

Room Tip: spa room represents superb value

From the moment you step foot onto the pathway at the entrance to Chedi Club, Ubud, you know you have arrived in a very special and magical place like no other on earth!!
Breath-taking surroundings which are a combination of amazing water features, traditional Balinese sculptures and all in a location that brings the best of Bali's flora and fauna together. I can guarantee that around every corner and at every glance you will find the most beautiful views.
We were met by Rasti, who was our personal butler during our stay. She provided service that can only be described as perfect. We booked at spa villa which housed our own twin treatment room where we were spoilt with the most amazing Balinese therapists. Our villa also contained a personal sauna, plunge pool and huge bathing tub and tropical shower, all in a secluded courtyard garden.

The restaurant was also of the highest standard, and in a stunningly beautiful location overlooking rice fields. We met Dean the head chef who took time to discuss our culinary requirements and made us feel very special. Every person that works at the Chedi club is attentive, professional, arm and friendly and makes time to make you feel very special...

If you are looking for a place that is uber-luxe, the ultimate in relaxation, service, cuisine, spa treatments and an amazing location, then you must visit the Chedi Club, UBud.

P.S Make sure you book well in advance as there is only 12 individual villa's - that's how exclusive it is......

Booked the hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and was not let down! Simply amazing hotel, staff and location. I have stayed in 4 Leading hotels of the world (slowly trying to work down the list!) and must say this was so far the best.
We were greeted by the manager and introduced to our personal butler. We were also upgraded to a spa villa at no cost and the villa was amazing.
Free minibar, breakfast, high tea and cocktails. Only thing to pay for was dinner at the hotel for 2 nights which wasn't cheap.
They have free shuttles running to Ubud and you can book these anytime. They are also very flexible on timing of the drop offs/pick ups...for example we were looking for a nice authentic Balinese painting and mentioned this to the driver. He suggested a few small galleries and then took us out of the tourist route to a small gallery run by a master painter. He then helped us negotiate a good price for the painting. In my book, this speaks volumes of the staff and general attitude of the hotel. Well done!
The room was amazing with its own spa massage room and sauna. Very comfortable and butler was at pains to create spectacular 'towel' sculptures every night on our bed.

All in all, an excellent hotel with wonderful friendly staff and spectacular views of the paddy fields. Well recommended! Deserves its standing as one of Leading Hotels of the World.

Room Tip: Try and get spa villa!

My family and I just left the amazing Chedi and it was one of the most memorable stays we have ever experienced.

We arrived and where meet at the airport by our driver who took us on the beautiful drive up in the mountains to our home away from home.  Upon arrival at the Chedi we where greeted in the open air reception with a refreshing drink and some afternoon tea whist our check in was processed by our butler Darma. 

After a little tour of the property we where shown to our room, a beautiful private villa over looking one of the many beautiful water ponds.  Our room was lovely and clean and the bathroom was an outdoor / indoor experience which was lovely.

Whilst at the Chedi I took part in a cooking course which was just me the Head Chef and his Sous Chef (2hours of private one on one instruction) I was taken on a culinary delight thru the wonders of Indonesian spices and fruits. Hesitant to taste some of the local fruits,  with the guidance of the Chef I am now a true lover of many of these.

We ate all but one meal in the restaurant as the food was amazing, beautifully prepared, presented and the tastes - world class.  The setting is picture postcard beautiful.

Our 3 year old son was welcomed everywhere and nothing was too much trouble.  Which was lovely especially as this hotel is essentially for couples.

The staff are an asset to the hotel and are lead by a kind and easy to access General Manager Simon who knew everyone by name and made you feel like you belonged rather than just being a guest.

The Chedi is an amazing experience and one that we can not wait to repeat.

Choose here as it has been rated at no#1 on TripAdvisor so we booked 1 night for our short trip to Ubud so we didn't expect much.

Once we stepped in the resort, we must said this is the heaven. The resort looked well crafted with Balinese style with stunning rice field landscape. The front manager and general manager came over for greeting, then our personal butler take us around the resort. The room was very spacious, outdoor bathroom was amazing.

The club benefit was inclusive so almost everything is free (from Illy coffee capsule, mini bar, cocktail, afternoon tea,.......) My butler had also well prepared the bath with beautiful flower and arranged all the laundry. Breakfast was exceptional, try Mee Goreng (Balinese fried noodles)

I would suggest everyone to stay at least 2 nights to enjoy the resort, the has so many things to enjoy!!!
