After staying at the Viceroy in Ubud there would only be one word I could use to describe it. "Fantastic".
Upon check in, we were greeted with friendly, well spoken staff who gave my wife and I leis made from frangipanis and a pleasant iced tea as a welcome drink.
We were checked in with zero fuss and taken to our room by electric buggy. Our porter clearly explained the layout of the grounds on the way to our room as well as how everything worked in our room.
We stayed in a Deluxe Terrace Villa (room 15), note if you are booking a Deluxe Terrace Villa, room 15 & 16 have completely unobstructed views of the gorge and river below.
The room is above 5 star, extremely clean, very luxurious styled with a Balinese theme. It has a high thatched ceiling, ducted air conditioning, wall safe, free wifi that works well and is fast, a large plasma tv around 50 inch with satellite tv channels, dvd player, a sound system for you iPod / iPhone, an espresso coffee machine with free coffee pods, a good selection of Twining teas, a minibar with free soft drinks and juice, milk, water etc.
The room features a large comfortable lounge, an extremely comfortable, larger than king size bed, writing desk, walk in wardrobe with large hanging space and drawers as well as room for your bags. The room also has great lighting, led reading lights for the bed, dimming mood lights etc.
The bathroom features a large stone bath, his and hers vanities, separate toilet and a shower that features a massive rain shower, and a normal shower rose to top it off. In the courtyard, your private infinity pool looks spectacular as it appears to flow over the edge in to the gorge below. The courtyard also features traditional, and again i use the word "spectacular" and luxurious balè. It actually hangs over the gorge. It has a comfortable corner cushion style lounge with pillows and a table where you can even have your breakfast served, or in the late afternoon enjoy a drink while watching the monkeys leap from tree to tree in the gorge. They have thought of all the smallest details like a power point in the balè for your iPad charger etc. This makes this an incredible and relaxing outdoor area.
The restaurant, "Cascades" is also 5 star. We had dinner there and we're treated like VIP's. Nothing was a problem for the staff who again went out of there way to make the whole experience special. The food was great! Taste and presentation was what you would expect to see in fine dining restaurants anywhere in the world. Cascades also features a very extensive wine list, as well as beers, juices, soft drinks.
To sum up, I would highly recommend the Viceroy in Ubud if you are looking for a special place to have a great relaxing break.
