I booked The Chedi Club for the first part of our Honeymoon due to the resort's universally positive reviews on TripAdvisor. After staying there for 6 nights, it's clear that this reputation is well-deserved. We stayed 3 nights in a Spa Villa and 3 nights in a One Bedroom Suite.
Service: 5/5. Our butler, Yuni, was very proactive with recommending ways that she could help enhance our stay. For example, we booked a sunrise hiking tour that departed from the hotel at 2:30am. Yuni suggested that she could arrange for a breakfast box to be prepared for us, which was definitely much appreciated as otherwise we wouldn't have had any food until hours later into our tour. In addition, Simon, the General Manager, personally introduced himself during breakfast on the first morning of our stay and also asked us for feedback about our stay before sending us off with a small gift. With just 20 rooms at the resort, the staff really gets to know you by name.
Appearance of the Property: 5/5. One of the most beautiful hotels I've ever seen with a design that's uniquely Balinese. Property is also very well maintained.
Spa Villa - 5/5. Very well appointed with lots of attention to detail (such as a Bose speaker system that reached throughout the entire villa). This room included daily in-room spa services with the room rate, which were very relaxing.
One Bedroom Suite - 4.5/5. Very comfortable room. The spa villa is definitely much larger, and we were glad that we had splurged for the extra pampering for part of our trip. Only negative of the one bedroom suite is that we would have preferred that there was more outside lighting around the entrance to the room.
Location: 5/5. If you're looking for a beach holiday, then the Nusa Dua area would definitely be a better choice. However, the Ubud location of The Chedi Club was perfect for us. The resort itself is located in a peaceful, serene setting. We did a lot of tours in Bali, and The Chedi Club was a great home base, since all of our tour operators were also based out of Ubud. If we had stayed in Nusa Dua, we would have spent a lot more time in transit rather than enjoying our tours.
Food: 4.5/5. Service at the restaurant was top-notch. We stayed with the local fare throughout our trip and were not disappointed. My only comment is that at dinner you're asked whether you'd prefer sparkling or still water. As they use a brand imported from Europe, each bottle costs 5 USD. However, when we politely declined, they would always bring us the complimentary regular filtered water that they used for breakfast, which was more than adequate.
Overall: 5/5 - truly amazing!
