After a long 26hr flight from Toronto (post-wedding), you want to arrive somewhere that completely exudes tranquility, class, and a dollop of mystique. Chedi Club has it all.
Grounds: immaculately maintained; we honestly felt that we were staying in a botanical gardens - hell, they even have black and white swans wandering the grounds. The rice paddy fields are like an ocean of green.
Room: Beautiful Balinese furniture; Highly recommend a pool villa
Cuisine: Chef Dean is a master in the kitchen; our breakfasts were verifiable feasts! lots of fruits, great coffee, great portions. Definitely try the private rice paddy dinner - one of the best meals ive had ever.
Service: The staff their are amazing; Jappa (our bulter) was attentive and intuitive (magically appearing when we needed him, but not stiffling). The general manager (forgive me, i forgot his name) actually came by to check on how our stay was going. The resort offers great activities (do the barbecue!) and day trips - we opted to arrange our on private driver, but the service is available.
Criticisms: We don't really having any; Ubud in tremendously busy - particularly with traffic; those from Toronto can appreciate the sentiment "its like the DVP at 4pm"; once you get onto the resort grounds however - all that disappears. Well definately be returning a year or two - maybe even visit one of their sister properties.
