“Second Visit, First Class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

For the second time this year I visited the Viceroy, in May with a girlfriend, and this time with my husband. We had a Garden Villa which was luxurious to say the least with all amenities you would wish.

As yet again, the staff were very accommodating and respectful and the meals at Cascades were exceptional. This time we had High Tea which was extremely adequate and just enough for us before another delicious evening meal.

Another massage was in order , which was enjoyed by both of us.

The Hotel has such a calming and tranquil ambience, that we almost did nothing except curl up with some good books, enjoying our restful and relaxing surroundings.

Will be back yet again,not even bothering to seek out other hotels.

I am generally not a person for expensive hotels or posh resorts particuarly when staying in Asia as I prefer to be immersed in the local cultural but I have to say this place is an exception! :) We (myself, my husband and our young son) only stayed here for 2 nights (which was probably the perfect escape from reality time for us) as I got it as a mystery deal on Wotif.com for US $100/night. We actually got picked up from a cheap family run bungalow we were staying at in Monkey Forest road and were transported to the Viceroy in their luxury air-conditioned van. We had seen the pictures of the garden villa (the cheapest room) online, but nothing prepared us for seeing it in real life, my husband and I were speechless, we couldn't stop laughing and smiling like we'd won the lottery. Everything about the villa and staying there was pure luxury. The highlight for me was the bathroom, where you could sit in the bath and look over the view of the stunning valley.Sipping my gin and tonic while getting ready for a night out with my husband in that gorgeous bathroom with a view I truly did feel like royalty! :) We made use of the babysitting service offered by the hotel to go out for a night which also made me feel very special getting picked up in the golf buggy and once again transported in the luxury van to a trendy cafe in Ubud. We knew our son would be in safe hands so could relax and have a good time. All of the staff were lovely, but as it was low season while we were staying there (and not many guests) we felt that the owner was disappointed that we didn't attend one of the special dinners they put on for guests. But to be honest it would have really blown our budget to go and we would much rather eat at a cute little cheap cafe in Ubud town. Breakfast wasn't anything special, although can't comment on other meals which I'm sure were lovely. I wouldn't say this is the most child-friendly place to stay in terms of the design of the villa, as the floors are all marble and there is a plunge pool (although you can lock the doors to keep your little one inside the room and away from danger). It's definitely a place for couples, but we still had a magical time staying as a family. The plunge pool was actually quite cool temperature wise, but still fun to take a dip. The only little thing that was not perfect was that we had wasps flying in and out of the vent of our bath occasionally, but since we're not regular 5-star travellers this didn't bother us too much! It was all the little touches such as the luxury tea and coffee and the turn-down service with the beautiful smelling robes and little gifts that made our stay dream-like! :) I doubt I will get the chance to stay at the Viceroy again or anywhere as nice as this, so I'd say it's definitely a once in a life-time experience. If anyone asked me where they should go for a honeymoon I would say here for sure!

We loved our terrace villa. The view of the gorge was breathtaking. We relaxed in our pool and bale while listening hindu chnats emanating from a temple across the gorge.
The staff was lovely. We got to meet the owner and the chef. Both were friendly and made us feel special.
The food was amazing. We would definitely stay at the Viceroy again.

The Viceroy has it all...beautiful rooms, spectacular views, excellent service, amazingly friendly people, delicious food at Cascades restaurant. The local cultural experience just tops off an incredible overall experience. Thanks to all the staff at The Viceroy...we will definitely be back.

Can't say anymore positives, read all the perfect reviews from all the past guests then times 10+, the best part of the hotel is the owner who walks the property constantly and makes sure everything is perfect. Talks to every guest and even take pictures for them, my kids enjoyed talking with him, and the perfection of the property and staff reflects how he loves this property, if you visit Bali, you must stay here, my whole family fell in love with this place. Oh, I cannot close this review without mentioning the staff, again perfection.

After staying at the Viceroy in Ubud there would only be one word I could use to describe it. "Fantastic".

Upon check in, we were greeted with friendly, well spoken staff who gave my wife and I leis made from frangipanis and a pleasant iced tea as a welcome drink.

We were checked in with zero fuss and taken to our room by electric buggy. Our porter clearly explained the layout of the grounds on the way to our room as well as how everything worked in our room.

We stayed in a Deluxe Terrace Villa (room 15), note if you are booking a Deluxe Terrace Villa, room 15 & 16 have completely unobstructed views of the gorge and river below.

The room is above 5 star, extremely clean, very luxurious styled with a Balinese theme. It has a high thatched ceiling, ducted air conditioning, wall safe, free wifi that works well and is fast, a large plasma tv around 50 inch with satellite tv channels, dvd player, a sound system for you iPod / iPhone, an espresso coffee machine with free coffee pods, a good selection of Twining teas, a minibar with free soft drinks and juice, milk, water etc.

The room features a large comfortable lounge, an extremely comfortable, larger than king size bed, writing desk, walk in wardrobe with large hanging space and drawers as well as room for your bags. The room also has great lighting, led reading lights for the bed, dimming mood lights etc.

The bathroom features a large stone bath, his and hers vanities, separate toilet and a shower that features a massive rain shower, and a normal shower rose to top it off. In the courtyard, your private infinity pool looks spectacular as it appears to flow over the edge in to the gorge below. The courtyard also features traditional, and again i use the word "spectacular" and luxurious balè. It actually hangs over the gorge. It has a comfortable corner cushion style lounge with pillows and a table where you can even have your breakfast served, or in the late afternoon enjoy a drink while watching the monkeys leap from tree to tree in the gorge. They have thought of all the smallest details like a power point in the balè for your iPad charger etc. This makes this an incredible and relaxing outdoor area.

The restaurant, "Cascades" is also 5 star. We had dinner there and we're treated like VIP's. Nothing was a problem for the staff who again went out of there way to make the whole experience special. The food was great! Taste and presentation was what you would expect to see in fine dining restaurants anywhere in the world. Cascades also features a very extensive wine list, as well as beers, juices, soft drinks.

To sum up, I would highly recommend the Viceroy in Ubud if you are looking for a special place to have a great relaxing break.

My Wife and I recently visited Ubud Bali for the first time and stayed at this beautiful, tranquil most serene resort in the mountains. We loved the rooms, the food was amazing and the staff like your own family. The staff are so attentive to your every need without being invasive of your privacy and the rooms are beautifully furnished and maintained.
The owners of the resort have made sure you feel special and after being out all day you come home to your resort feeling like you are back home.
We would recommend this resort to anyone looking for the exceptional.
Worthy of a 7 star ratin, we will definately be going back one day.

Room Tip: All villas have pools all amazing
