Reviewed 22 July 2012

I have been visitng Oberoi Blai since 1995 and I must say that even if the city surrounds nos the place it is still a heaven of peace and perfection.
Rooms and villas are just out of this world and food is excellent.
There are, of course now many new resorts but Oberoi stil represnts the essence of Bali

We'd read all the previous comments about the Oberoi, and they were so great, we had to go for it - and it was worth every penny!

If only life could be like it is at the Oberoi every day! The sun would shine, people would behave in a warm, friendly and civilised manner, your very whim would be attended to you. It really is like paradise on earth. It doesn't feel like a hotel - more like a charming village of thatched Balinese huts (ok, the most luxurious huts you can imagine) in the most perfect setting fronted by the crashing waves of Seminyak beach, with perfectly manicured gardens, and every facility you could wish for. The cocktails are amazing, especially when watching an exquisite and dramatic Balinese dance in the amphitheatre (yes, amphitheatre! How many other hotels can boast that?!) just below. It is all truly stunning and every time we went out and about, it was bliss to come back to the Oberoi again.

The Lanai room did indeed have a sea view and was luxuriously equipped. The bed was enormous and surrounded by a wooden frame (which can make it a little tricky to get in and out of, unless you are tall!). But it was very comfortable, the air con was silent and efficient, and the bathroom – complete with indoor/outdoor shower and luxurious marble sunken bath – was just gorgeous.

As so many others have said, it's the staff and their attentiveness that really makes the Oberoi very special. Everything has been thought through so carefully and with so much consideration, and is delivered with a smile - and probably flowers too! At the pool, every possible whim is catered for (before you've even 'whimmed'!) and a meal at the restaurant is a beautifully choreographed symphony of elegant service and exquisite deliciousness. The trick is that it all seems so effortless, and the staff are never over-attentive or familiar. The delivery is seamless and subtle - although there's no doubting the hard work it takes to achieve this. The result is that you really feel looked after and a special and valued guest.

The Oberoi is a place of magic and romance, I was literally in tears when we had to leave it and the warmth we had received from all the staff. Obviously, the Oberoi is not the 'real' Bali, but feels like a dream-like, perfect version of the natural beauty of the island, and it does seem to capture the special magic and spirit of the Balinese people - their patience, tolerance and graciousness. Our dream is to return there - one day...

Room Tip: I doubt there is a bad one...!

This is very recommended hotel in seminyak, even Bali. I love the ethnicity, but still comfortable. I can see beach barely in here. Beautiful scenery and great service too. My husband loves it too. We'll stay here when back to Bali, soon!!!

All the nice things we love about Bali are found in this great resort. The service and friendliness are amazing. It's a little more expensive than average but worth every last dollar spent. If you want to experience seven star service while paying five star prices, then this is the venue! Definitely returning!

Perfect hotel. Only a poor standard breakfast. If you want à good breakfast
You have to pay for everything. Not good for the price you have to pay and
a five star hotel.

Dear Royfranklin,

Thank you for posting your review of The Oberoi, Bali on TripAdvisor. We are appreciative of your feedback and happy to know that you found most aspects of The Oberoi, Bali “perfect”.

On the contrary, I am alarmed to know that you found our breakfast did not meet your expectations. The Oberoi, Bali does not include breakfast with all its rates, and perhaps this is why you have ranked our breakfast as not good. I do apologise that you found this mismatched with The Oberoi’s star rating.

We do hope that we have the opportunity to one day welcome you back to The Oberoi, Bali once again, and hope that we can make every aspect of your stay perfect.


Warm regards,
