“Perfect in EVERY way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

What a beautiful way to start our 12 night stay in Bali. We were felt right at home in this amazing hotel. I would never have expected a 5 Star to give you such a homely and one to one tailored service ( and i have stayed in a fair 5 stars around the world). Locals rice farming in the hotel grounds, the tremendous butler service, the amazing views when you walk out of your villa in the morning, the spa treatments and the food. We were called by our names and our breakfast options were memorised by the end of the first day. They noticed how much i loved Nasi Goreng so on the day we left they gave us a small bag of their own farmed rice (which was grown in the rice paddy fields surrounding the villas) and the hotels chef's recipe of Nasi Goreng!

Our butler took great care to advise us where to eat and go for local food based on our description of what experience or style of food we wanted. We wanted to taste the real local food and life in ubud and thats what we got.

I would go back to the chedi club 100 times over! We stayed in a spa villa for 4 nights which included our very own on site private spa with complimentary 1 hour his/her treatments every day! Highly highly recommended!

Love you chedi! My husband and i still talk about you today!

This hotel and grounds were gorgeous and the staff is wonderful. I stayed in a pool villa which was great for privacy although the main pool never looked to have more than a few people at it. The villa is quite spacious, the bed is wonderfully comfortable and the included breakfast is fantastic. My butler, Yuni, was great, always around but never intrusive ( how did she know when I snuck out for breakfast in order to have the room made up before I returned?? :) ) I would also like to thank the chef who was wonderfully accommodating to adapt dishes as I am a vegetarian. If you are looking for a serene place to relax, this it is!

Room Tip: If you choose a pool villa, try to get one that has an open view to the rice paddies.

We stayed here for a few nights...the service is great,food lovely,surroundings quiet and serene.An extravagance which gave us a sense of luxury and peace...the villas themselves are very private and spotless....some of the outside woodwork and decking is looking a little tired but the grounds of the main resort are glorious.

Room Tip: Get a pool villa if you can....more private

My family and I spent 5 nights at The Chedi. It was a marvelous experience. The grounds and the villas were exceptional - we spent 4 nights in the spa villa and the final night in the Hadirprana villa. However, what sets The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah apart from all the other luxury villas and resorts with exotic locations and settings is its service. Of the resorts I have stayed at, including 3 other GHMs, this one is head and shoulders above the others, mainly due to this wonderful service. For example: there is an earthenware pot/vase by the outdoor shower with a large ladle, for pouring water over yourself - much like how we would bathe when we were kids. We returned each night after dinner to find that the water in this large pot was warmed up for us. I have never encountered such marvelous attention to detail. The turn-down service staff or our butler actually took the trouble to go that extra mile! Stunning!

Supri was our butler and he was excellent. He was gracious, kind, patient and helpful. He took great care of us and he helped tremendously with our itinerary,, table reservations, and comfort throughout our stay. What's more important, he got along famously with my kids, particularly my younger daughter. Our walk with him through the padi fields was one of the highlights of our stay.

Chef Dean, a fellow Singaporean, certainly made us proud to be Singaporean. He added a wonderful personal touch to all our meals at the resort. . He was also extremely generous in sharing tips on cooking, as well as where to eat. His dishes are out of this world - from the cashew nuts roasted with salt and chili, to the mini cakes at tea, to the suckling pig and basil sorbet. Truly world class. What I found amazing was that he also went beyond his duties to ensure that we had a memorable and enjoyable stay at the Chedi.

The other service staff we encountered were all excellent. The waiters and waitresses as well as the pool guys knew our names. At the restaurant, they quickly knew our preferences at breakfast each morning. Of note also is Puspa, one of the managers. She showed exceptional care and concern to ensure we were satisfied with all aspects of our stay.

Congratulation to Simon, GM of The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah. You and your team have made this resort stand out amongst all other luxury resorts I've had the pleasure of staying at. My family and I truly cherish our stay with you.

We just spent 4 nights at The Chedi as part of our 10 year wedding celebration trip. We absolutely loved The Chedi - and we wish we were still there (we are at another high end resort now and it just doesn't compare). Our butler, Surya, was outstanding - he was so nice, very knowledgeable, and he really made sure everything was flawless. Surya and the rest of the team are extremely focused on providing the highest level of service and it really shows. We met Simon, the GM, Dean, Executive Chef, and others who made us feel so welcome. Truly exceptional people. The grounds are incredible - stunning in their natural beauty with amazing trees, flowers, plants, and ponds. Not to mention the rice paddies. Throw in a world class art collection and WOW! Limit the resort to 20 villas and add a world class spa. Why are you still reading this? Book The Chedi now! All kidding aside, we loved every minute. Our villa had a private pool which we really liked when it got very hot. The Chedi offered a kecak dance followed by a special dinner. So glad we did that! Great setting to watch the fire dance and hear the monkey chanting. Dinner was excellent! Truly a special place and a great base to call home when exploring Ubud. We can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Room 14 - private pool villa - peaceful and secluded

This hotel was the second port of call on our honeymoon and we were not disappointed!
It was one of the major highlights of our 14 days in Bali and Lombok. We stayed at the Chedi Club for 3 nights. The location is stunning, set on paddy fields, the grounds are very well looked after, the staff that look after the gardens, trees and pathways were always friendly and courteous. You really do feel as though you never want to leave.
My wife and I were lucky enough to have a pool villa which looked out over the paddy fields, the rice had been harvested so no rice, but we did have the pleasure of seeing a group of ducks patrolling the area everyday which was truly lovely. We were looked after by our butler Dana, this young man really made our stay memorable, nothing was too much trouble for him. The way in which Dana looked after our room was amazing, we always arrived back to it being immaculately clean and with a new towel creation left on our bed. Dana also took us on a paddy field walk to show us exactly what goes on in those fields. We couldn't have asked to be looked after by a gentler soul, you would be incredibly lucky to find this kind of service elsewhere.
Another shining light in the Chedi is it's Chef, Chef Dean is truly incredible. My Wife is vegan and I am vegetarian so we expected to be given a few options on the menu that met our needs. Well Chef Dean surpassed our expectations, he came to us on our very first night and asked my wife what foods she enjoyed, within minutes he had created dishes that would have left michelin star restaurants in the shade. He continued to look after us for our entire stay, every night going off menu to see to our needs, I really can't speak highly enough of this man, Chef Dean and Dana are two treasures i hope the Chedi Club are able to retain.
This hotel really is one of the best in the world and is a credit to all the work Simon(The Manager) and his team put in, all of the team at the Chedi are top class and we would return there in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Try to get a pool villa, the view is amazing!

The Chedi in Ubud exceeds any expectation you have. I read all the reviews before staying here recently on our Honeymoon, it is luxurious, personalised, unique and breathtakingly beautiful. The staff at this resort are fantastic and deliver 5* customer service.
The spa is out of this world and the rooms are clean, spacious and relaxing. The complimentary mini bar was the first we had come across on our honeymoon and the afternoon tea service (also complementary) was incredible!
Keep up the fantastic work as this place is magical!
