We stayed at the Chedi in Ubud Bi August 2014 for 4 nights, we are a family of 4 with 2 kids of 6&9.
I try to be objective in my reviews trying to avoid superlatives, when you rate a 5 star hotel you expect a certain level of service. In the case of the Chedi though this is difficult because I have found it truly outstanding and with a different, much more personalized and homely feeling compared to other properties of the same level. First of all the setting is beautiful, right in the middle of rice fields and with only 20 rooms which gives it a very intimate feeling. We had a villa which is composed of a very large living room, a bedroom, a massage room with 2 massage beds, a beautiful bathroom with a large walk in shower, a rear patio with a large private pool with jacuzzi and a front veranda.
The living room has a large elevated sofa on which 2 mattresses were placed for the kids, very comfortable. The massage room in the villa was great because you got the treatments in your room in a fully equipped manner, great for keeping the kids under control.
The formula which the Chedi adopts includes breakfast, minibar including soft drinks and alcoholic beverages, snacks, coffee etc, wifi, transport to Ubud and back, yoga classes, laundry, tea in the afternoon and a daily 90 minute massage for 2 persons. They provide you with a butler, in our case Kadek, very kind, helpful and informative, we are grateful to him for having made our stay so memorable.
Food is very good at breakfast and also dinner. Twice a week the organize a traditional dance in the hotel gardens with a Balinese dinner: excellent.
All the staff is very gracious and really make this establishment superb, the therapists are excellent, the restaurant and bar personnel are very attentive and kind.
I asked for a late check out since we had a night flight and they let me use the room for the whole day until 10pm without any extra cost and even offered complimentary transport to the airport, a very nice touch, thank you to the General Manager for such a courtesy.
This establishment is very calm and relaxing, great to unwind enjoying the massages, the scenery and the pool.
The kids loved the place too and we're crying when we left also because Kadek had been so nice with them.
This hotel is not suitable if you are into excitement and night life because you need a care to go into the center of Ubud.
We would have gladly stayed more and I strongly recommend it, the Chedi made me feel at home I would definitely return and highly recommend it as one of the best hotels I have ever been to in the world.
The only complaint I had was that in the morning there was too much light, I would have appreciated being able to keep the light out.
I was not at all impressed with Ubud.
