“The Viceroy is "The PERFECT Destination" for a Honeymoon!”
Reviewed December 8, 2010

Thank you to all the wonderful staff who made our Honeymoon an Amazing experience. We stayed in a pool villa and would definitely recommend everyone to have this fantastic experience. The view from our room or from the private pool was amazing over looking the Forrest we even got to see a few monkeys playing in the trees. The bed was sensational & we slept so well not like any hotel we have stayed at. The Food was an experience in itself complements to the chef! The overall property is Exactly as the net show it to be.......the manicured gardens, the infinity pools words cannot describe this picturesque location. The day spa facility was out of this world "The Cleopatra Treatment " was awesome! I cannot fault the Viceroy in any way all I can say is see you next your for our 1st anniversary. Thankyou LeRoy & Tyra Walker Australia

I booked a stay here through the Small Luxury Hotels website. Firstly, the
actual view of the valley is more amazing than what the photographs show. Next, the
villas are very spacious and private. We actually forgot that there are other villas next
door. Third, the service is exceptional. I was particularly impressed by how quickly they
set up their meeting room for me to take an urgent conference call in privacy. One staff
member set up the conference telephone checked that my laptop had Internet access
and adjusted the air conditioning temperature to my liking before leaving. They even
supplied drinking water without being asked. It may not be a business hotel but the
service was professional and prompt, and any travelling businessman likes that.

My partner and I stayed for 7 nights for an R&R Break from Port Hedland.
We were so well looked after the minute we stepped off the plane with their VIP Immigration service that zipped us through past all the queues and then transported by "Made" our driver to the serene Viceroy.
We were there in the wet season but the rain only made our stay more plesant. Our Villa backed onto jungle with a river at the base of the valley which you could hear through the buzzing of the jungle. We were lucky enough to see monkeys jumping through the trees on more than a few occassions.
Our villa couldn't have been more beautiful what with the thatched roof marble bathroom, beautiful (larger than) King bed, and our very own pool. The staff were extremely attentive with speedy room service, a daily cleaning service and nightly turn down service.
The attention to detail was out of this world, from a constant supply of fresh fruit of so many varieties on the table to all the decorative frangipanis being laid out daily.
Food was almost too good - I dare say we gained a few kilos whilst we were there.
"Made" our driver took us to local temples, shopping, restaurants around Ubud and was very knowledgable about Bali with excellent english. He was more than happy to help out with the obligatory haggling and could not do enough for us. We were lucky enough to meet his lovely family and hope to see them all again soon.
We didn't feel we needed to be anywhere or do anything, the ultimate relaxing holiday.
We hope to return very soon.

Reviewed October 28, 2010

We recently stayed in the Vice Regal 1 villa. I always thought that I was a pretty relaxed guy and knew how to unwind... Viceroy brought relaxation to a whole new level.

We spent our first day in Kuta as it was my wifes first time to Bali and she wanted to experience the hussle and bustle before heading into the Viceroy for the majority of our quick trip.

It was hot, muggy and after walking around all morning we were tired and had sore feet. Margy arrived at our hotel in a comfortable air conditioned car, cold wet face towels rolled up and ready, and bottles of cold water waiting for us. The drive took around an hour from Kuta and was a very comfortable trip. His english was great and he was very helpful and answered all our questions about Ubud and gave us some local tips.

When we arrived at Viceroy we were greeted by the staff who dealt with the usual formalities before Margy packed our bags into the golf cart and drove us down to our villa. It is a short walk up a steep hill to get from the Vice Regal and Viceroy villas to the front desk, the restaurant and the spa. We didn't mind the walk but if you are feeling extra lazy you can call the front desk and they will send the buggy down to get you.

First impressions (spoiler - dont read if you want this to be a surprise, I wasn't expecting this and it was amazing)
As you walk down the walkway to the villa you are greeted by a wooden door under a stone archway. As our friend Margy opened the wooden doors up he opens you up to the front of your new home away from home and a bunch of magnificent rock carvings that are over grown with moss and tropical plants. From here on it was our own private heaven.

The villa itself was well sized, enough room for us to scatter our bags and clothes everywhere and still have room to walk! The bath is amazing with a large stone elephant head sticking out of the wall. More on this later. Then you walk outside to the outdoor room, swimming pool and our "backyard" which overlooks a huge valley where we watched wild monkeys playing in the trees on the other side. A waterfall rushing down the rocks on the other side just topped it all off. This place is amazing!

What to do.
Nothing. If you don't want to do anything this is the place to do it. The first day we arrived we swam in the pool for a bit, then sunbaked on the grass until we had an afternoon shower, then we read our books under the cover of the outdoor room. We felt like we should be doing something so we then went and booked our spa for the following day, walked up to the restaurant and had dinner, then ordered ourselves some cocktails at the bar (which overlooks the main infinite pool, the rest of the resort and has great views along the length of the valley.

The next day we had our spa, ordered room service and read our books by the pool. All day... We felt guilty, but managed to shake the feeling off by going to Ubud for dinner.

The following day we hired out a moped that had been arranged by the Viceroy staff. This cost us $10AUD for the day, a good price even by Bali standards. We rode up to the volcano, bribed the police (it cost us $12AUD and we managed to haggle them down from $50AUD!!) and had the worst meal I've ever had. The ride itself though was spectacular, we passed rice fields and while the volcano was nothing special I'm still glad that we went for a ride and just got lost for a couple of hours around Bali. We returned back to the Viceroy and ordered the degustation menu. This is one worth mentioning in more detail, so I'll add this later.

Our 4th day was an early one for us. We were out of bed at 8:30am, ordered breakfast in our room then layed by the pool in the morning sun reading. At lunch time we moved the banana chairs underneath the cover of the outdoor room to escape the burning sun, and the shower that followed shortly afterwards. We ordered room service again for lunch. After lunch we kept reading, slipping into the pool when we managed to get too warm and then we'd just jump back out again after a quick dip and read again on our banana chairs until dinner. We decided we'd better do a trip up to the restaurant to get out of the room for at least a couple of hours. We put our "please service" sign on the door just in case the room service crew were in the area (we had already told them not to bother twice that day). After another lovely meal and a few drinks we returned to our villa to see it spotless, and the bath was full with warm water and flowers shaped into a love heart for the romantic couple! We didn't ask for this to be done, and we were only gone for a couple of hours so I was amazed that they had managed to sneak in while we were gone and do such a great job. It was a very nice touch, especially for our last night.

Our last day we did not fly out until 11pm so were stuck without a room from 12pm. Fortunately we had our complimentary spa (it was included in our package) and what was down to be a 1hr massage ended up being a 2.5hr spa treatment at no extra charge. Unfortunately after this we only had time to relax in their poolside bure and drink more cocktails until they gave us a free shuttle back to the airport to finish up our holiday.

Cascades Restaurant
Very nice, but very expensive for Bali. We had the degustation with wine matching which ended up at over $500AUD with a couple of extra wines. While the food was amazing they managed to miss out on one of our entrees (the scallops which I was really looking forward to) and one of our wines. This also put us out of whack with our wine tasting. I brought it up with the waiter, however I don't think he understood what I was telling him. He was very helpful and very nice, but this was one thing that put me off. After paying such a high price for dinner I would have expected it to be perfect.

Lembah Spa
Now this was good. We had a 2.5hr massage and a 1hr massage booked in and both went overtime (as above our complimentary 1hr massage lasted 2.5hrs). The therapists gave us a number of different masks, scrubs, rubs, baths, saunas, showers... and a cool drink to get you started followed by a herbal tea after a dip in the cold plunge pool or warm spa. Very nice.

Overall I'd say that the service was great apart from that one moment during dinner and the price. We were there for 4 nights and everything was fine but the cost is over the top for little things (degustation is great, but overpriced at 1,500,000 rupiah each, and a tube of sunscreen cost us $40AUD from the front desk).

I'd definitely recommend it to anybody looking to get away and if you can bear to spend time doing absolutely nothing and not feel too guilty it is absolutely perfect.

We booked a Garden villa for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer.
The valley can even be seen from inside the villa, so we always had this amazing view of green trees.
The room was very spacious and the beds were also large and very comfortable. Service was prompt
and warm. It was one of the best hotel stays that we have had.

Our seond visit to The Viceroy and we were again extremely happy with the experience.
The accomodation, setting, ambience are excellent and we enjoyed having superb breakfasts in the villa each morning while watching the monkeys and mist across the valley.
Every meal at their Cascades restuarant was superb - the degustation meals that they offer are excellent.
The spa staff provide the most relaxing treatments I have ever had and the setting is beautiful.
We again used their VIP service which is well worth the extra money as you pass through the airport very quickly and hassle free.
Look forward to another visit next year.
