“Balinese Dancing and Dinner a must”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

We were not staying at the Oberoi, but wish we were, but I had booked dinner and dancing and it was a night to remember. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The food was a Buffett and it was spectacular, fresh prawns, lamb, suckling pig and a selection of Indonesian delights. The dancing was fascinating and we were seated right at the edge of the amphitheatre, perfect spot.

Our family stayed for two nights of R & R at the Oberoi in late July. I agree with all the positive comments posted on Trip Adviser. We loved the pool area, the staff, our room, which was an ocean view room, and especially the delicious food. The grounds were lush, the stonework and sculpture inspiring. We found the other guests attractive and discreet. We enjoyed the oasis-like quality of the hotel, located so centrally among all the flash, dash and occasional squalor of Seminyak. If a perfect, pristine white sand beach is your ideal, I would not recommend the hotel. If a lively beach scene, tasty waves and long beach walks with visuals of different beach restaurants and hang-outs sounds fun, then the Oberoi is perfect. We really liked relaxing at the Oberoi pool, which has a view of the beach, and taking long beach walks in the morning and evening. We also liked popping down the beach to check out the club scene at Ku De Ta and Potato Head at night.

The Oberoi is definitely a beautiful property, and most of the staff was friendly and helpful. But we had canceled part of our stay (well before the cancelation period) to return to one of our favorite Ubud hotels, and the management at Oberoi gave us a hard time about the cancelation -- saying they didn't receive it, etc. I had to get our travel agent involved to prove our cancelation. This is not how I expect a hotel of this status to handle things. It was a hassle, and not how I wanted to spend our time there. And heads up - the prices at the restaurant are high. I spent $55US for a breakfast of yogurt, french toast, coffee and juice. Step out and explore local restaurants with much better prices.

Dear Christine r,

Thank you for posting your review on Trip Advisor after your visit to The Oberoi, Bali. I am glad that you found most of the staff to be friendly and helpful. I apologise about the confusion about our cancellation policy. Unfortunately we had not been previously informed by your travel agent within the allotted cancelation period. It is unfortunate that during a busy period when accommodations are in high demand, we learned about your change in travel plans at the last minute. Your travel agents email was received a short while after you checked in. I am sorry that you feel that this was mishandled. So did we.

I assure you that prices at The Oberoi, Bali are similar to other resorts in our same category on the island of Bali.

Thank you for having stayed with us.

Beachfront property, surrounding by beautiful restaurants, easy access to tons of amazing boutiques! Prompt service, lovely room, wouldn't hesitate to recommend this amazing hotel to our family and friends! :)

This is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff are incredible - I have near felt more looked after after. They thought of my needs before I did!

The room was lovely, the pool was beautiful and the restaurant was top class. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Room Tip: All the rooms are amazing - however I would say that the pool is so lovely that you don't really...

We were told that this is the oldest luxury hotel on Bali... Oberoi family launched this property in the late 1970s before the advent of the usual suspects (Four Seasons, Ritz, St. Regis, Mandarin, Bulgary, etc., etc.). It is a boutique hotel of about 60 rooms/villas, and it seems to have a loyal following of the not so trendy people. The property is well managed and comes across as authentic and private. We had an excellent stay, and recommend a pool villa for the ideal experience.
