The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, Ubud, Bali – a GHM hotel
Ranked #5 of 199 Hotels in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Looking back on our stay it was as though The Chedi brought the best of Bali to us, instead of our having to go out try and find it. It was the highlight of our 2 weeks in Indonesia.

Immaculate grounds, expansive rice paddies, well appointed rooms and incredibly thoughtful service: Chedi is a calm sanctuary close enough to Ubud to provide opportunity for exploration yet removed enough to escape from the mad traffic of Bali (yes, even in Ubud off season it was constant).

Pardi our butler was friendly and genuinely looking to assist in making our stay comfortable, as were all of the staff. Every detail was attended to in the room and on expeditions, including our offhand request for a travel converter which resulted in a brand new 25lb commercial-grade converter set in our room hours later - "It was all we could find for you today" was the apology when we teased him about it. Very eager to accommodate, a wonderful quality in a host.

The food and cocktails were excellent and creative as well as being reasonably priced. Pastries!! And locally inspired foods were especially good. We enjoyed the open air dining and breakfasts very much. Do take part in the Kecak event which was an unexpected highlight - set amongst the moss covered statues and fire bowls it was wonderfully atmospheric.

The pool villa was extremely comfortable - we spent a fair bit of time in the private courtyard of our villa and would have missed that option, though the pool area and attendant Gusti were both a pleasure to visit.

Balinese and Indonesian artwork and decor throughout the property made our stay feel very authentic and culturally rich (as much as one can get in a resort), something we hoped to experience in Bali but found very difficult to come by.

Spa services were also very good, though I felt that the restaurant facing location of the spa room is not private or quiet enough - a loud air conditioner and restaurant noise were slightly bothersome. There was minor construction happening during our five day stay which did not bother us as it was otherwise empty.

Weather in February was often cloudy with a few sprinkles but warm and comfortable.

Dining tip - Mozaic is a good destination for one evening's meal.  Skip the baba guling in town, it is much better at the hotel no matter what the mass reviews of Ubud say.

Room Tip: Pool villa is a must, as others have said.

Dear Guest,

I am delighted to read through your detailed review and its great to hear that we could provide you with the authentic Balinese experience you were looking for. I agree with you the combination of Balinese art pieces, endless rice field and our gardens and ponds represents the best of this beautiful and cultural rich island.

Its nice to hear that you enjoyed our services, food, cocktails and facilities. The small construction work has finally been completed as well.

We would like to thank you again for your visit at the Chedi Club and for sharing your thoughts about our resort on TripAdvisor.

Kind regards,

Simon and the management team

We stayed at the Chedi in Ubud from the 15th to 25th May 2014. The hotel is fantastic, the staff are very friendly and attentive. The hotel is very private, set in rice paddies and so is very quiet. However, it is only a 10 minute taxi ride from Ubud centre, where there is plenty going on.

I would recommend the cookery class as Chef Dean is very passionate about his food and it was a fun afternoon. Dean makes sure the food is a very high standard - the freshly baked pastries for breakfast were a real treat. Also do try out the spa.

We stayed at the Chedi Club Tanah Gajay earlier in May this month. We had a booked a pool villa with a panoramic view of the lush green paddy fields. Tucked inside Ubud, this resort is a place where you can be one with nature. Imagine waking up every morning to the chirping of birds. I have never seen a resort so green. The dining area again has a beautiful view of the paddy fields. We loved the food. The staff is excellent and charming but our personal butler Putra deserves a special mention. He was wonderfully helpful. The shuttle cars between the Ubud centre, Ubud market, and other nearby local places of interest is truly convenient. One of the best experiences we've ever had.

Room Tip: We were staying at room 8 where the pool looks out to the green paddy fields.

The three words are "heaven on earth." If you don't have time to read 3 words, I’ll shorten it to just one: "heaven" (as in on earth or anyplace else, for that matter!) Spent six nights there this past week (departing May 16th), at a pool/spa villa, on our honeymoon. Staff were not simply excellent, they were charming, friendly, and gave insights into the local culture. If you can get a pool villa with a spa room, do. You won't be disappointed. Calm, serene, beautiful, truly relaxing. Our assigned butler, Rusdi, is someone we miss already - not simply because he was wonderfully helpful and creative, but because he was such a nice person as well. He surprised us with his remarkable and very unusual skill at creating lovely shapes out of towels which he left on our bed, but I won't spoil his surprises by telling you what they all were (although I've posted one photo, to give just a small idea of what he can do!) The staff at the dining area were superbly helpful, the food delicious, and the musicians who played gently during meals were also a treat. And, speaking of treats, once you've spent time at the Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, do expect to find that everywhere else that you go will be a bit of a letdown! I hate to sound like a typical husband, but, believe me, if I ever get in hot water with my wife, my plan is to ask her a very simple question to help get things back on track: "I took you to the Chedi Club, didn't I?" We will never forget the truly soul-enriching time we spent there. When we left, we didn’t say “goodbye”, we said “sampai jumpah”, which means that we’ll see you again – which, hopefully, we will! And the sooner, the better! Our special thanks also to our skilled and helpful driver, Fit, who toured with us to a holy spring temple, a volcano, wonderful rice terraces, a coffee plantation, and then also knew where to stop to buy fantastic gifts at non-tourist prices!

Room Tip: We were in room number 2 but I'm told that rooms 3 and 4 have a better view.

The staff of this Hotel have been wonderful throughout our stay. The five-star service already begins in the car from the pick-up with the wifi connection and relaxing Chedi Music. To our surprise we were upgraded to a Pool Villa at check-in and had a Private Butler taking very much care of us. We have asked for a Baby-Crib as we were travelling with our son (20-months). The crib provided was perfect quality! The cook-chef has even approached us to let him know if he could prepare special food for him! Thank you! The complementary minibar and taxi service to Ubud centre (10mins) as well as the Laundry service were very much appreciated! We had twice dinner outside and can highly recommend the restaurants Lamak and Bridges. In room-dinning was also very nice, food beautifully presented and very well cooked. Al dente pasta, Yummy! Our sons favorite was the penne carbonara which we had twice at the Pool Restaurant. Mr Simon Spiller has personally greated us and other guests which made you feel at home. The Hotel is a stunning place in the middle of the rice fields. The main pool is truly amazing. The gardeners do such a great job as the setting, fish ponds, flowers and trees are very beautiful. Thanks to everybody for making our holidays an unforgettable one!

We are a family of three and stayed for 5 days in February 2014. We have stayed in some great hotels across the world and the Chedi is up there with the best of them. The location was beautiful and so tranquil.

The service was exceptional as was the food and facilities. We still miss the superb homemade marmalade with our breakfast! We ate in the hotel for dinner on a couple of nights and whilst more expensive than in Ubud was comparable to UK prices. The standard of the food was excellent and well worth a try.

We did not have a pool villa and were happy with this decision. The main pool is so quiet and and the grounds are so beautiful that I don't think we would have made much use of a pool in our villa. We would have missed out on the nice touches such as the tray of chilled water, sun screen, cold face cloth etc that arrive almost as soon as you find a sun bed.

The hotel isn't particularly aimed at the family market but our 13 year old has never been interested in kids clubs so we were more than happy with the facilities as far he was concerned.

All of the extra touches such as complimentary drinks in your room, afternoon tea, evening cocktails, car service, butler service and the overall exemplary service means that what might at first look like an expensive hotel really delivers as a complete package.
