Its very hard to do justice to this hotel using only a 5 point rating system, it really is an amazing place and certainly the highlight of our honeymoon in Bali.
Even before we arrived at the hotel the service had been excellent, arranging excursions and special meals through their concierge services. On arrival we were greeted by our butler and shown around the magnificent grounds, which are arguably more impressive than the tourist attractions in the area.
The room was superb with a private pool, shaded Bale (gazebo) and secluded outdoor bath tub.
The food available at the restaurant is absolutely first class and we cancelled other reservations just to come back and eat at the hotel instead. Chef Dean (the executive chef) went out of his way to give us a magnificent culinary experience and the passion for his work really shines through! During the stay we took the ristajfel, Kecak dance and dinner and the rice paddy romance special meals and I would highly recommend all of these. The highlight though was the cooking class with Chef Dean, which I can not recommend enough.
During our stay we took three excursions through the Chedi club, venturing to the East and West of Bali as well as the area around Ubud. If you are planning a multi-location stay in Bali then i'd certainly recommend taking excursions through the Chedi as the drivers/guides were the best we had, just save enough time to enjoy the hotel too!
Service throughout our stay was faultless; from the butler served breakfasts and tours.
Conclusion: I can't rate this hotel highly enough all the way from the food, location, grounds and service.
