Being picked up by the hotel at the airport (and taken back) made a very good start! We met our butler as we arrived and, unlike many claims made by hotels of 'butler service', the Chedi has made this a genuine and integral part of their offer. Surya not only serviced our room, but was happy to organise anything we wanted, to sort out laundry, to walk through the paddy fields and was brilliant at making dogs out of towels!
The hotel is set in beautiful gardens with many interesting features. Our villa was a very good size and very comfortable, the hotel pool was large and a great swimming temperature, whilst the surrounding area was perfect for sunbathing.
Free pre-dinner cocktails or wine proved a huge temptation each night - irresistible! And having breakfast or dinner overlooking the rice fields and the numerous ducks wandering around them was just fabulous. The food was excellent and the service charming.
The hotel organises a weekly 'Kecak Dance' which is just amazing (they didn't mention the charge for this until afterwards though), and will organise transport into Ubud itself which is definitely worth a trip.
