The Oberoi, Bali5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We have found the place just great. Tucked away from the sometimes frenetic Seminyak main, in his great oasis. We splashed out and went with the villa with pool, so I cannot comment on the others. But ours was just fantastic. The staff are all highly polite and most helpful, all going out of their way if needed. Rooms are clean and spacious, no shortage of towels, pillows, water, whatever you reasonably ask for. Well done to whoever is responsible for the training. We are on a tour that has taken in Dubai, Delhi , Singapore and Bali so far, and this hotel really tops all of those we stayed at. I saw a few reviews that said it's a little expensive, and I suppose if you wanted to find a fault you will, but I am happy with my room, what I paid, and what I get.
We stayed for 4 nights. As always, the Oberoi service was superb. The rooms were very comfortable - we had a garden facing room with good privacy. Excellent service at the pool - with cold towels, water and light snacks. The beach is not very clean - but sadly not much the Oberoi can do about that. Semanyak village is a short 5 to 10min walk with lots of very nice cafes, shops and bars/restaurants. The hotel was very helpful in recommending us some good places to eat.
From the very moment you step onto the property you know you are staying in a very, VERY special place. The hotel was built on the holiest hindu beach in Bali, and you can feel it. Serene, tranquil, private, spacious, stunningly beautiful, immaculate and lush landscape, understated and unpretentious beach elegance, designed with hand carved wood and balinese marble throughout, this is the original, the real deal Balinese style 5 star pure luxury experience. I know that Grace Kelly and Mick Jagger have stayed here, though the entire staff treats you as if are a princess or rock star too. I have been coming to Bali for years and would only ever stay at this hotel. The attention to detail is beyond anything I have ever seen, just the epitome of perfection of hotel hospitality that luxury accommodation in Asia is famous for, especially an Oberoi property. From the impeccable housekeeping, to the in room dining morning service where they bring the toaster and basket of bread to toast in your room so you should have freshly made toast, or sitting poolside while a pool attendant comes by to clean your sunglasses, or offers you anything you may want. No request is too much and the entire staff does it with a true genuine smile. You know that they, too, are just so overjoyed to be working in this dream of a place and they take tremendous pride in their work and their property. The large pool is absolutely stunning, as is the beach, the rooms and Villas (I have stayed in 3 types over the years, a Lanai, Ocean View Villa and Villa with private pool) and all are exquisitely well appointed with all of the modern amenities but in true authentic Balinese design and decor. The spa and massages the best in town (hint - if you book a massage that starts before 2pm they add a 50 min body scrub or head massage for free). The rooms, well, the rooms are stunning and each has a beautiful plunge bath complete with candles and bath salts, overlooking a gorgeous outdoor garden, high thread count sheets, terry and cotton robes, and the attention to detail in the housekeeping is beyond exceptional. They don't leave anything unattended to, including tying up your electronic cords so they are not a mess. Superb location for shopping and dining and an oasis to come home to after a day of running around Seminyak. Kudos to the GM Mr.Halpin and assistant Manager, Arie Ermawati for running an absolutely perfect hotel. A truly unpretentious luxury hotel experience at its finest, Oberoi Bali certainly lives up to its Oberoi name. I already look forward to my return to my home away from home in Bali.
We would never chose anywhere else in Asia as a retreat when we need a break from the stresses of life and The Oberoi never disappoints. We always stay in a garden view 'Lanai' - just the right size and with everything you could possibly need including a plunge bath with candles (which are always changed if you use them - you don't even need to mention it. Just another example of the amazing attention to service detail at this lovely properly. The food and facilities and landscaped grounds are all superb but the jewel in the hotel's crown are its staff. Impeccable and discreet service, delivered efficiently but always with a smile. We cannot recommend The Oberoi highly enough.
My two teenage sons and I recently stayed at the Oberoi Bali. We are loyal return guests because love the wonderful attentive staff, the beautiful grounds, the privacy, the excellent food and the location right on the beach. The full sized tennis court, the swimming pool and the boogey boards are great for us as an active family. The rooms are delightful and the aesthetic of the entire hotel is beautiful and restful without being ostentatious. Delicious afternoon teas are served every day whilst a local artisan or group gives demonstrations of their craft. Even though it was rainy season we were delighted to spend our holiday there.
This hotel is pure luxury- fabulous transfer to and from airport, great welcome and felt like royalty. Rooms were massive and beautiful. Ensure massive and high end. Service throughout hotel exceptional- pool staff are ready to serve and bring water, cold towels , lotion etc - breakfast us the fantastic and dinner exceptional. Afternoon tea and complimentary fruits and sorbets handed out at pool also a nice touch - I would definitely recommend.
What can I say. It’s everything you would expect from an Oberoi. Top quality service from the minute you step through the door. Food & drink perfect & gorgeous view of sunset with classy cocktail in hand which is hard to beat. Amazing haven of a spa. Obviously expensive but worth it if you have the budget.
Beautiful premises with private beach, bungalows with ocean view are the best. Excellent service as always in Oberoi. Personnel are amazingly friendly and polite, make you feel at home. I wish Oberoi were present in Europe as well.
Attentive staff, comfortable bed, complimentary fruits, bottled water, shuttle, afternoon high tea, free internet, nice pool,Compact gym. Walking distance to shops and many spas, dining spots. Aditya the photographer did a great job at the complimentary photoshoot. Very beautiful manicured landscaped gardens in traditional surrounding. They also have the traditional dance on one of the evenings. Beautiful sunset from the beach.
We have just spent 6 nights at the Oberoi Bali and what a wonderful experience we had. Our Lanai Garden Room was spacious, with a beautiful bathroom, comfy bed and pillows. Daily housekeeping and a nightly turndown, with fresh fruit and ice brought to the room every day. Every single staff member greeted us with a beaming smile and remembered our names. The surroundings are like a beautiful garden oasis, with fountains and ponds with fish. We loved just lazing by the pool during the day, and the service by the staff there was exceptional, fruit sticks and frozen jellies were on offer during the day and we were always provided with bottled water. The a la carte breakfast was to die for, so many choices, different cuisines and when I asked if they happened to have some Vegemite (I had an Aussie craving) out it came. Every afternoon there was a complimentary afternoon tea, where you could witness a traditional activity. We enjoyed drinks at sunset at the Frangipani Cafe, which also has a great selection of light meals, and we loved the traditional dance on Saturday night. Busy Seminyak with its many restaurants is only a 7-10 minute walk away, we dined out a couple of nights, but we were always so happy to be able to come back to the peace and beauty of the Oberoi. All in all a highly memorable stay at the beautiful Oberoi Bali.
