Reviewed 23 April 2012

Its hard to decide which superlatives to use when describing this place and the experience of staying here! We arrived in Bali from Singapore where we thought the service we recevied at the Mandarin Oriental could not be topped. We then met our butler Supri and realised we were wrong. This 'hotel' (really its more of a collection of private villas) is set in lush, green surroundings with manicured gardens and beautiful pavillions, statues and lakes. Our pool villa (bedroom, double sinks, outside bath, private pool, pagoda and small kitchen) was stunning and something that you would counjure up if someone asked you to describe your dream accommodation. Supri was a star - topping up our complementary mini bar, bringing snacks to try, doing our laundry, bringing us cockatils by our pool - and being from the local village was able to take us on a very informed tour of the hotel's rice fields and his nearby village. I stepped on a bee one day and he was round to our villa in 5 minutes, having already called hte hotel doctor for advice and with a bowl of ice to help allieviate the pain (the general manager then checked on me later in the day which was appreciated). This is a special place and one my husband and I will always remember.

We stayed at the Chedi Club for our honeymoon in April, and we were absolutely amazed. It is one of the most beautiful, serene and spectacular places we have ever been. It is absolutely stunning - surrounded by rice paddies.
Our butler, Rasti, was brilliant, and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great stay.
The food was absolutely delicious (you must have the gado gado) and we never wanted to leave.
Our private pool opened directly onto the rice paddies, and we regularly felt like the only people in the world.
The location is great, and not at all far from the great shopping and eating in Ubud.
Can't recommend it highly enough, and we can't wait to go back!

My wife and I spent six nights here as part of our honeymoon. Having stayed at another Chedi a couple of years ago, we had high expectations, and the Chedi Club Tanah Gajah did not disappoint.

This is a beautiful hotel in a stunning setting, surrounded by rice fields. The hotel's estate extends almost as far as the eye can see. Ubud is a bustling town which can be quite noisy at times, but once you're inside the hotel you're completely isolated - a glorious feeling.

There are only 19 rooms in this hotel, all self-contained and fabulously comfortable. The outdoor bathrooms take some getting used to but by the end of our stay we were finding outside bathing quite delightful. The complimentary mini-bar and liquors, the Bose iPod dock and the complimentary laundry service were all real treats.

Where this hotel excels is in the sense of luxury and personal service from staff, without ever being invasive or making us feel uncomfortable. We found it a really nice touch that every employee knew our names almost as soon as we arrived. Every room has a dedicated butler and we were fortunate enough to be looked after by Sutama. He was wonderfully discreet, helpful and attentive and he made our stay particularly special. He helped us with onward travel arrangements (even booking flights for us) and personally turned down our bed every night - making ever more creative elephant figurines out of towels every night which never failed to put a smile on our faces.

Guests can take advantage of complimentary afternoon tea and cocktail hour every day. Every individual canape bears the hallmarks of the excellent chef's personal touch and we loved exploring new treats every day. The Tanah Gajah Purple cocktail (made with basil) was a revelation! At meal times the hotel's own gamelan players fill the air with the soothing sounds of gamelan and gongs which we found quite amazing. On certain nights, the sounds of a larger gamelan drifted across the estate from the temple in the nearby village. Dinner was very expensive (especially by Ubud standards) but seriously good.

The hotel provides a complimentary car service during the day for destinations in Ubud. From the evening onwards, drivers are still available but there is a charge. At around rp.120,000 (including tax and service) this is around twice expensive as an Ubud minicab making it uncompetitive - it was effort alone which led us to use it most nights for outbound travel.

The general manager, Simon, is highly visible around the hotel and makes the point of catching up with guests every day - again, highly discreet but this personal interest from the GM gives a huge sense of reassurance. The hotel hosted a wedding while we were staying (spread across two days)... it is fair to say the event had a monopoly on the staff's attention and meant that the restaurant was closed one afternoon and evening, but the matter was well communicated by the hotel and the car service on the evening in question was complimentary up to 11pm, which was a generous gesture by the hotel.

In summary, this is an outstanding hotel which has captured perfectly the balance between service and discretion. It deserves to be considered one of Bali's top destinations and is a credit to the Chedi brand.

We have stayed in some lovely hotels - gleneagles, four season sayan etc, but this was the best. Service, food and facilities were fantastic (especially with new head chef). It was lovely only being one of twenty villas. Very intimate but warm and charming as well.

We went with our two children aged 6 and 8. We had a spa vila with beautiful day beds for the kids. Villa was huge with lovely bath and shower in the open. . Pool and spa fantastic

Our butler Dharma was great, at the same time always there but not obtrusive.

We will definitely return.

Room Tip: All good but spa villa worked very well for two children

A most charming "private villa" hotel with extremely fine service to match. If you want to get away from it all, be treated with the upmost hospitality, enjoy fabulous spa treatments, and dine in a beautiful, open-air restaurant right on a lovely rice paddy, then The Chedi Club Hotel is the place for you. Not only are the villas beautiful maintained, but the grounds which surround the entire hotel are also impeccable. The hotel is located just outside Ubud, the cultural center of Bali, with free shuttle service into Ubud any time of the day. Also offered at the hotel is any type of private tour you might like to do on Bali - from half-day to full-day excursions.

From the moment we got there until the day we left, we couldn't have received better service than what was provided by The Chedi Club. An unbelievable experience.

And, to top it off, included in the price of the room was a wonderful, full-service breakfast, a fully stocked mini-bar in our villa, high tea, a free cocktail hour before dinner, a butler on call, and free shuttle service to and from the airport.

Each evening a special Balinese style dinner was part of the menu selection, and was most reasonable priced. All the staff, including the General Manager and the Chef, were always available and were making sure you were well taken care of.

Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: We got a villa with it's own pool and with a butler on call. I don't think there is a bad v...
