“Love the peaceful surrounding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

My husband and I check in on Wed and depart on Fri.

We enjoyed the dinner in the restaurant immensely.
Facing the beach and enjoying the sea breeze, accompanied with friendly staffs relaxes our night.

Thursday breakfast is quite another experience. They serve the food in the ala carte way.
The free flow of fresh fruit juice makes me feel so healthy already ;)

The dinner was marvelous. We were entertained with the Ramayana dance and Babi guling (and friends).

We will definitely come back to stay, but next time it will be longer.

PS: Mostly couples and "mature guests" are here. Not really a friendly place for toddlers.

We had come from the Oberoi, Lombok to the Oberoi, Bali and were really disappointed. The hotel still has the oberoi standard room however much smaller than in Lombok. Overall the hotel looks fairly tired and in need of refresh. The food was extremely disappointing and particularly the choice for vegetarians was poor. I would not recommend this Oberoi hotel as worth the money. Go stay at the Oberoi in Lombok instead!

Dear Harriet M,

Thank you for posting your review on Trip Advisor after your visit to The Oberoi, Bali. You and I have communicated already via email as you had shared your feedback on the Guest Comment Questionnaire.

For the sake of TripAdvisor readers, I would like to clarify that our sister property, on the island of Lombok was built 20 years after The Oberoi, Bali was.The Oberoi Bali is not 'tired' it is deemed the Grand Dame of Bali resorts and heralded as the most classically Balinese hotel on the island. Our extensive 6-page menu at The Kura-Kura restaurant has vegetarian selections of Western, Asian, and Indian cuisines. Our Executive Chef and his team are always happy to prepare any dishes desired which are not on the menu whenever requested to do so.

We offer wonderful packages combining staying at both of our resorts on the islands of Bali and neighbouring Lombok. Thank you for suggesting to the tripAdvisor audience to visit The Oberoi, Lombok. It is indeed a stunning island and resort.


Warm regards,

We came seeking seclusion and luxury on the beach and that's what we got. The Oberoi in Seminyak has great charm due to the fact it's been there a long time and retains a distinct Balinese feel rather than it;s surrounding counterparts who try to be too western. The staff are just lovely, the service spot on and our favourite was the beachfront bale where many a long day was spent languishing. Being bale to watch the waves roll in and people flying kites without being hassled was a definite plus.

Room Tip: Although a pool villa directly facing the beach sounds enticing it will mean you have everyone in th...

When I stayed at this hotel for the first time in 2000, I felt that the atmosphere, hospitality, and accommodations, etc. at this hotel were very impressive and comfortable.
So, since then, I have stayed here 8 times to escape from the daily routine and recharge my batteries.
・Room:
A little bit old, however very clean and well-maintained. You can feel the traditional Balinese atmosphere in any type of room you book. Also, you can use your digital gadgets with their free Wi-Fi service. Though it’s better to enjoy the great atmosphere here and do a digital-fast.

・Restaurants&Meals:
Very Good. Especially after breakfast at Frangipani Café by the beach, you’ll be satisfied and stuffed. The hotel staff accepts your requests for customizing your meals. You can also enjoy afternoon tea from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the poolside.
After dinner, Kayu Bar is the best spot. You can enjoy some cocktails and other alcoholic drinks. Cool breezes from the ocean always welcomes you.

・Pool&Beach:
The pool in the hotel is a little old-fashioned, however very clean and well-maintained. You can stay and relax at the poolside all day with beach chairs, free mineral water, complimentary cut-fruits and ice-cream, and afternoon tea, etc.
As for the beach in front of the hotel, the ocean current is strong and the waves are big, so it’s great for surfers, however might be challenging for swimmers. If you’re lucky, the ocean might be calm that day, calm enough to take a refreshing dip. During our 5 days there, fortunately, my son and I had such luck.
You can also watch a beautiful sunset from the poolside or on the beach. Don’t miss this spectacular show.

・Others:
As I said, digital-fasting is a better policy during your stay here. However, if you insist, free Wi-Fi service is available anywhere in the hotel. As for the garden, it’s quite impressive and very peaceful. Everywhere in the hotel, you can feel and enjoy the Balinese atmosphere. I think that all hotel staff tries very hard every day ‘not to change things’. Although the world around them is rapidly changing in these modern times, as if in a strong ocean current, The Oberoi, Bali stands firm in their values and remains a symbol of the unique Balinese tradition.

We had reserved a private villa in another area and finding it lacking in attractions we switched to the Oberoi Resort and it was grand. Excellent service, spotlessly clean, wonderful gourmet food and private villas.

From the moment you enter the grounds of the Oberoi you realize every place you've been before has been sub-par. It is the epitome of what people mean when they say "Paradise." The service was immediate and above and beyond. Everyone knows your name and goes out of their way to make your stay pleasurable. One night I complimented our server on her cologne and before we left she had called her friend to find a store open at night, buy it and bring it to me ...at her own cost! And then there are the massages ...quite simply THE BEST couples massage we have ever had. This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. Period.

We come since 1998, visited a lot of hotels and villas. If you want to stay in a perfect hotel, with a great tradition and local design, you have to go in Oberoi Bali. Great Service, villas and restaurant. The absolute perfection.
