we just returned from our 9 year anniversary trip to the viceroy and have RAVE reviews to post! The staff were so helpful in the planning of our trip with quick and helpful responses to all my many many questions about the area! The VIP immigration service they offer was huge and so nice to be pampered and not wait in lines at the airport! Upon arrival to this tiny botique resort we were IN HEAVEN!!! From the lush manicured grounds, the swanky helicopter pad at the entrance, the grand marble foyer, to the friendly staff, it was just gorgeous! What we loved most was how small it was...this allowed them to be very detailed in their service and know us and made it very personal, they didn't miss a thing and we had total privacy and seclusion, rarely saw other couples! We stayed in Terrace Villa 1 and it has THE BEST views and was just incredible! Walking into the room seeing that amazing plunge pool w/ the bale' suspended over it, WOW!!!!!!!!! The villa was MASSIVE and all marble! So fancy yet so comfortable. One entire wall is glass so you see out to the jungle, yet all windows and doors can be completely covered so you can still sleep in the dark in the mornings. The bathroom area was insane! The TV was huge, ipod speakers huge, wonderful coffee amenities and did I mention fabulous stocked mini bar that was complimentary!? We had breakfast served in our bale each morning and it was always delicious, fit for a king and on time, served with a smile! We spent the majority of our vacation here just reading, eating, relaxing and being pampered! They offered us their driver and nice SUV's to be taken around town in but I would recommend using the resort's scooter and venturing out into the local areas, the rice fields and villages. Ubud is nice to see but we enjoyed getting away from all the commercial stuff and by scooter was the way to go! We would also recommend Nomad's for dinner in Ubud, excellent food and fun views of the busy town. We did a couples 2 hour massage and yogurt scrub there at the Viceroy spa and it was HEAVEN!! Total pampering and ended with a couples hot bath in a luxurious tub filled with petals and a refreshing drink! They really took time to honor our anniversary and did little surprises for us through the week to celebrate it including one night when we were coming home they brought us an anniversary cake, another night when we got home they had drawn a hot bath in our huge tub and filled it with flowers! They didn't miss a detail! I can't say enough good things about this place and can't think of anything negative at all! You will be SO HAPPY if you come visit, the most peaceful, beautiful place in the middle of the jungle, overlooking a river gorge with top notch staff and luxurious villas and private plunge pools, how can you not love it?!?!?!
PS. we stayed here for our first 5 nights and ended our last 2 nights at the beach. However, I would not recommend Bali for it's beaches now after going and seeing several of them. They are beautiful and nice, yes, but nothing spectacular like you may see in Bora Bora or Fiji. Also the beach areas, even though we chose one away from all the touristy stuff (Jimbaran), seem very commercial and lack the true culture vibe of Bali that is found off the beaten path in Ubud. We for sure enjoyed our time at the beach and exploring Uluwatu area especially but if you can't decide, I think you would be just as happy staying here in paradise your whole trip! :)
