“Perfection”
Reviewed 4 March 2013 via mobile

I am currently finishing my final night of 4 in total here. This is truly a world class resort. The service is impeccable, the food is excellent, the grounds are beautifully manicured and have character. This place sets the standard as far as I'm concerned.

Enjoying a few days in this majestic hotel. Wonderful grounds, service is perfect and the accommodation very comfortable. The pool area by the ocean is nicely located, with breakfast area and amphitheater for special events.
Meals also up to the standard required of such a prestigious resort.

Some of the reviews I had read before I stayed there said that the Oberoi in Seminyak was showing its age. If so, it's ageing very well. It would be difficult to find any fault with this hotel. The rooms and villas are a delight. The location is excellent: right on a stretch of beautiful beach and within 10-15 minutes walking distance of restaurants and shops. The staff is well trained, friendly and helpful. When you stay here try the restaurant Sate Bali; it's just outside the entrance to the hotel, although somewhat hidden behind a market.

What is special about this resort is the timeless quality of the resort. For a resort, age is usually a bad thing, at the Oberoi it has the opposite effect for two reasons. One, the resort was built at a time and place when the land prices were not what they are today. Therefore the resort can afford to spread itself out far more than the newer neighbors, more space = more peace. Second, the resort is built of timeless natural materials that look better with age. I heard the resort has not even been renovated once in 30 years - amazing. Having traveled to Bali many times, staying here is truly a special one of a kind experience and one of the best on the entire island.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for sparing your valuable time and post your comments on Trip Advisor after your stay at The Oberoi, Bali in July 2012.

I am delighted to note that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you have taken more good memories away from this beautiful island. We have tried very hard to ensure that the property represents the true magic and spirit of Bali. The beachside setting and tranquil tropical gardens are reminiscent of Bali as it was when The Oberoi opened in 1978. I am so happy you stayed here.

Some may call us “old-fashioned”, however The Oberoi, Bali is better known as a “timeless, culturally correct classic” I am delighted to know that you recognised that. We have been ever mindful to ensure that The Oberoi, Bali retains its' charm and elegance reminiscent of and respectful to the Balinese culture and traditions.

Thank you for staying with us, and look forward to the opportunity of again welcoming you back to The Oberoi, Bali.

My wife and I had visited this hotel on a number of occasions before we got married (Nov 2011) and loved it so much we chose it as our venue to get married. The hotel staff were all fantastic and they made the day and our entire stay fantastic and we could not fault them at all. We stayed in a garden lanai in the build up to our ceremony which was all arranged through the hotel with Studio 5 and upgraded to a pool villa on the day of our wedding!

The hotel is very special and the staff make you feel very special with all the little touches that all add up to making the hotel and location so memorable. We can't wait to go back to visit this beautiful part of paradise and would highly recommend the hotel and the location to other couples looking to relax or like we did, choose the hotel in which to spend one of the most special days of our lives so far!

If you have any questions about getting married there please let us know.

Stayed November 2012, travelled as a couple

this hotel is amazing. honestly the best service i have ever received. no tips are allowed in the hotel, so you give one big tip at the end, and it somehow works much better. all the staff are beyond helpful, and they just get all the finer details right. no request is too big!

the rooms and the grounds are beautiful and luxuriously comfortable too. food and drink is of better quality than any of the surrounding hip restaurants we ate at. top marks!

Room Tip: we had a garden room and it was great.

The Oberoi is absolutely wonderful. It was the original Luxury hotel in Seminyak, so it is older but that is half the charm as its set on acres of beachfront land and the villas and lanais are all one level. It is so old world that the moment you get there you are relaxed. The rooms are spacious and modern with. the g best beds and pillows.

They have a shuttle service to Legian several times a day but really you hardly need to leave the hotel. The breakfast is al'carte which is a nice change from the usual Buffett. We had room service one night so we could stay and watch the tennis finals and it was delicious and very reasonable

The service around the pool is great, they put a towel over the hot cover on the sunbed then tuck it all in, place your beach towel at end of sunbed then give you a tray with cold towels cold water bottles, suncream, and water spray . They come around the pool with fresh fruit on a stick and ice cream . There is an afternoon tea every day and lots of other entertainment going all the time.

The staff are truly. Amazing , typical of Oberoi staff, so friendly , always a smile and hello and nothing ever to much trouble for them

We loved it.

Room Tip: 233 would be nice to stay in as still private but has ocean view from verandah
