“Amazing Beach Honeymoon”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

Your breath will be taken away when you first arrive at this hotel. So glam in an old fashioned kind of way. The longer you're there the more you fall in love with the staff, food, elegance and high-end Indonesian charm that embodies this 5-star resort. The hotel is on a massive piece of beachfront property which is within minutes of all of the best of Seminyak. We ate very well here since the US dollar goes very far. All of the places we ate, including at the hotel, would have held their own against the best restaurants we've eaten in here in our hometown of Boston. We upgraded to the villa which is definitely worthwhile. The standard rooms are a little bit smaller than we were hoping for and the views aren't as nice. The beach is pristine and it's hard to take your eyes off it. You'll realize you've found a very special place once you take your spot at the pool in the afternoon, enjoy the beautiful and formal afternoon tea complete with delicious snacks made in front of your eyes and generally some kind of local entertainment or artist to show off traditional cultural arts, and then enjoy a world class sunset. The staff will do anything to make sure you're having a great trip. They don't have very many rooms but they operate like a huge resort in terms of the staffing and amenities - as a result you get a lot of attention that is of higher quality than anything I've ever experienced. They take great care of the rooms. Very clean and always full of fresh local fruit. You can even request your favorites from their fruit menu! It's not cheap but there's a reason this place is always booked up. It's very special and classic and fit for the kind of person who likes to stay at very special resorts that will stay with you for a long time...

We spent around 5 nights at the Oberoi, as part of our Bali honeymoon in September 2011. We have nothing but good things to say about this hotel: location, food, views, pool area were all great. But what really set the Oberoi apart were the staff, who were absolutely wonderful.

The hotel is also a couple of minutes away from Ku De Ta, a must-see bar/lounge/restaurant.

We will definitely be back someday.

Stayed October 2011, travelled as a couple

apparently this is the hotel the "rich and famous" stay at... it is lovely but a bit dated. the location is great, we stayed there so we were walking distance to Ku de ta (a few mins stumble up the beach). Not sure it was worth the $500 odd for the night though

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for taking your valuable time to post your review on Trip Advisor after your visit in August 2012 to The Oberoi, Bali.

I am delighted to note that you found the location of The Oberoi. Bali convenient to Seminyak’s wonderful shopping and vibrant nightlife.

The Oberoi, Bali has been purposely preserved, and is hailed by many as the most classically Balinese property on the island. Our range of accommodations include Lanai’s, Villas, and Villas with Private Swimming pools. The different room categories allow a price range from $375 up to $1000 per night, depending on the accommodation type chosen and available at time of booking.

We continually do upgrade various services and features to the property, whilst remaining sympathetic to the culture and history of Bali and of this landmark property.

Thank you for staying with us. We look forward to your continued visits, and hope we have rooms in your desired price range for your next visit to the island of the gods.

Warm regards,

John W. Halpin

Just let me start by saying thank you. I am a seasoned traveller. On a one month visit in south east asia this was the highlight. The Oberoi delivered excellence in comfort, style and warmth that exceeded all expectations. I have left some hotels in my lifetime saying, that it cant get any better than this. I was very wrong. This hotel offers a dimension of hospitality and simplistic style and class, that is rare indeed. The Oberoi Bali now becomes the benchmark. As one reviewer noted, there is no individual perfection here. What there is in this haven of tranquility and relaxation, is an abundance of talent, generosity and courtesy, that is natural and genuine. The guests experience is satisfying and whole from start to finish.

I had a partial sea view Lanai which was ideal and gave the best of both worlds. My room was surrounded by beautiful flowers and magnificent tress, stretching to the beachfront. I had the friendship of squirrals, birds and all forms of wildlife, for 8 wonderful days. There was nothing to do here except relax and continue to relax. They took great care of me. The restaurants delighted the palate. The pool was wonderful. The breakfast served at my room every morning was a fantastic start to a new day. You get the drift.

Finally, housekeeping is exceptional. My room was always comfortable, beautifully kept and attention to the smallest detail in cleanliness maintained at all times. The spa is reasonably priced for this quality and its setting is unique. The gardeners who maintain the grounds are a credit to the hotel. The care of the property, love of the plants, flowers and protection of this environment, contributes in no small way to making this hotel what it is. It is a home from home,It is in a class apart. It is out on its own. If you are reading this you may be thinking of going. Have no hesitation whatsoever in pressing BOOK NOW

Room Tip: In my opinion the partial sea view Lanai's are worth the premium
