The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, Ubud, Bali – a GHM hotel
Ranked #6 of 199 Hotels in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 December 2013

this hotel is sublime, walking the perfectly manicured grounds to the long crisp pool passing working rice fields and honking swans, Hindu gods and fresh water ponds just got better the more you did it. The service (you get your own butler) was terrific and made us guests feel truly special.
Free cocktail hour and afternoon tea was an absolute pleasure on the large laid back day-beds in the main restaurant and the rooms themselves were sparklingly clean, meticulously attended and lots of lovely details were included. We had a spa package, a 90 min treatment of choice everyday in our 'spa room' which was such a treat and made us feel like we were royalty. The only thing that was disappointing was the food, we ate in the restaurant twice and for the price it was very average fare, the breakfasts were ok, nothing to brag about and it wasn't a buffet. I was hoping to be dazzled on every level! Otherwise though I would go back in a heartbeat, just for the service and ambience alone.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review for us! I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your daily 90 minutes treatment in the Spa Villa, the services of your butler and the hotel grounds.

I agree with you that all services have to be equally good and I am very sorry to hear that you were unsatisfied with the food quality. I'll make sure to work closely together with our Executive Chef Dean to improve its quality.

We very much appreciate your comments about our hotel and we look forward to welcome you back to the Chedi Club soon.

Kind regards,

Simon and the Management team

We booked 4 nights at the spa villa for 3 pax which was confirmed via email as the online booking system was not available. However, upon arrival we were told that they have reservations for only 2 pax which I already suspected as the driver that picked us up from airport mentioned 2 pax. It was sorted out quickly after I forwarded a copy of the email. The welcome letter was addressed to Mr. Lim and Mr.Toh, Which is wrong and the staff repeatedly addressed us wrongly. Though everything was sorted out professionally and promptly, I must say I was a little disappointed that the reservation and welcome letter was wrong as I would expect better administrative from a luxury hotel chain.

The air conditioning in our room wasn't functioning well the 1st night and we were sweating throughout the night but was fixed after the 2nd night. Our butler, Sri whom was very new to Chedi did try her very best to accommodate to us but definitely has room for improvement.

Having said all that, it was one of the best holiday resort we have been to. The landscape, the service and friendliness from staff, afternoon tea and cocktails & the daily 90 mins massage made our stay an enjoyable holiday. Our villa was facing the swans and lily pond that made a picture perfect opening the doors to every morning, feeling peaceful and blissful. The breakfast was very good and looking out to the padi fields with gentle cool breeze made it spectacular!

Must try their fresh fruit juices and the fruit preserves - the best I have had!

Every staff was friendly and ever trying to please to our requests. The Driver, Fit was always punctual.

Highly recommend The Chedi for a peaceful, beautiful getaway for couples. Wouldn't recommend for family with young children.

Room Tip: Spa villa no, 4 faces the Lily pond and swan's pond.

It is difficult to add to the many excellent reviews that The Chedi has received on this site. But after 3 nights/Days of sheer relaxation I have to add to the plaudits. The ambience in this Hotel is second to none. The attention to detail is just amazing and the grounds and water features are a real pleasure to experience. Our butler Darma was so helpful and also so discreet that he made our stay such an experience. The manager of the restaurant was so happy to talk to us and offer us any item we required that we looked forward to each of our meals there. The afternoon teas, the cocktails and the massages were sublime. Thank you to all the staff at the Chedi for making our stay one we won't ever forget

Naturally the Chedi is located in a very beautiful landscape and naturally, all of the not too many villas including the tasty decor and the whole environment is really first class. But what was really touching us, was the great spirit of the whole staff. They do not only serve you, but accompany you with a deep friendlyness and warm, classy, unintrusive amiability.
You ask for an example? Like many people visiting a country on the other side of the globe, we surely are not easy regarding the choice and quality of food. In Chedi, they have an invisible, secret monotoring of your little favorites and your singularity and starting from second taking seat, you feel like at your mothers table. You know, what I mean, a mother always knows the little likings more than anybody else. We enjoyed that much and were really surprised about the sensitivity of everybody working in service, does`nt matter wherever in the Chedi.
Never ever we felt so "much home" and also so welcome in a hotel like in the Chedi Ubud. More than a honest Thank you and high awards to Mr.Simon Spiller and his ambitious team !
Should I tell that we want to return ?

We stayed four nights here in November and struggled to find any faults. Our one bedroom pool villa was spacious, well maintained and just a delight to be in. Service was impeccable and there were plenty of extra services including complimentary cocktails, afternoon tea, shuttles into Ubud and butler service. The luxury of a butler can't be underestimated, as we had a single contact person in Kadek we could deal with and cater to our needs and his service was fantastic. Greetings by the general manager and chef upon arrival really made us feel special. The grounds were magnificent and sometimes it was hard to even know if others were staying there as well because it was so peaceful. The only fault we found was with dinner options in the main restaurant which were high quality, but also expensive. That made cheap choices for a night in limited. Would highly recommend this for couples.

Room Tip: Get a pool villa. While the hotel pool is very nice, having a pool in your own compound is a special...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in early May as part of a vacation on Java and Bali. This was our second visit to the Chedi and I have to say that it met or exceeded our expectations in most every way. We tried a pool villa this time instead of the one bedroom villa and we enjoyed the upgrade immensely. The spaciousness, along with the privacy of the walled compound were tremendously enhancing, as was the availability of the small pool for a quick dip. The grounds were immaculate, as are the views over the rice paddies, and the service and food remain outstanding. Surprisingly, all of this comes at an extremely reasonable price when you consider what the super top shelf places charge. This is especially true when you also consider all of the extras thrown in by the Chedi. All in all, a great choice that's very close to Ubud, but just outside the over stimulation of the tourist zone. If possible, be sure and come when they are offering the Kacek dance performance by local villagers (two evenings a week I think). It's extraordinary, and is not to be missed.

Room Tip: We had a pool villa and loved the privacy. I find it hard to believe that we booked this as part of...

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your review and for returning to The Chedi Club!

Regarding the accommodation at The Hadiprana Estate, our reservations team does not usually book a party of seven in this villa.

However, please contact me directly at gsm@thechediclububud.com and we would be more than happy to look over the arrangements and come up with a way to have your entire family staying there together.

I hope to hear from you soon and we are looking forward to welcoming you back to The Chedi.
