I stayed here with my husband in January and having been told by my brother how dreadful the weather had been for him a week earlier the most pressing thing was...would it rain for two weeks??
In the end, the weather was great.
This is an established hotel in a chain which has a very good reputation. It seems to have a very colonial feel, which I thought was pitched right for the sophisticated, mostly european clientele.
The rooms were wonderful. We had a garden room (standard) but the suites looked amazing. You do get used to the bed being high, on one night we slept for 12 hours so there must be something right about them! Air con is very efficient. Room turn around and service was impeccable.
The turn down boys were so lovely as were the boys at the pool. In fact all the staff were first class, without exception. If a hotel is judges by its people the oberoi is up with the best.
We both had a spa treatment (I had Maunday Luluar) and it was the highlight of the holiday for this stressed out lawyer. My skin was so soft and it lasted for a week like that. Gorgeous.
The hotel had what I would call subtle, cultured local entertainment which was not in your face and early in the evening. It provided a small insight into the arts of Bali. Seminyak is on your doorstep so if you want to go out and get crazy, it's all there. Ku De Ta is next door. Just go..and see what the fuss is about.
We were on room only as we wanted to sample local cuisine. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant. Not on account of the prices but because it was so quiet!! It didnt have the buzz which was next door at Ku De Ta. This is a completely personal thing, as the food looked delicious and the plat du jours menu was very reasonable for the ambiance and the skills and service.
Drawbacks..the beach. Not great to be honest, not all that clean but not the hotel's fault. It was wonderful to look at from the hotel pool/bar. Trip to Kuta..we hated it and it was the only time I felt unsafe. Get a driver from the hotel taxi service to take you round the island.
As for the hotel- we loved it and will return, if not to Bali then ceratinly to another Oberoi.
