“Beautiful villas by the beach”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

We stayed Oberoi in Bali for three nights about 1 year ago, so this is review is a bit dated, but the experience was good and worth sharing.

The Oberoi is located in Seminyak, which is a pretty bustling town on Bali, but its at the corner of a large road, so the property itself is quiet and has a nice stretch of beach. We stayed at a large villa with a nice outdoor dining area, which would be great during dry season (we went during rainy season and didn't get any use out of it).

The rooms are large and well-appointed, though be aware that given the location, it can have many bugs outside - opening doors and windows for any extended period of time come with great risk!

The hotel as a nice pool with a good view of the beach and very helpful staff for any requests in room and around the premise.

Given the nice central location in Seminyak, it is also easy to walk to little street markets, boutique shops and restaurants, all within a nice 10 minute radius.

Dear Ken JNY,

Thank you very much for posting your review on Trip Advisor after your visit to The Oberoi, Bali.

I am delighted to note that you were compelled to post a review after visitng one year back. I am very sorry that you did not get to enjoy the outdoor dining area. You must have visited during an unusual stretch of continuous rain. The normal weather pattern in the wet season is, usually sunny mornings, with clouds and rain later in the afternoon usually followed by cooler weather in the early evening. Indeed as you have mentioned our tropical location 8° South of the equator is the perfect environment for holiday makers and tropical Flora and fauna.

Thank you for having stayed with us, and we all look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back to The Oberoi, Bali again one day.


Warm regards,

John W. Halpin

I keep a scrapbook of the best hotels in the world where we have stayed- the Oberoi in Seminyak is now included. It isn't just the architecture, the gardens, the comfortable rooms or the location that make this hotel special: it is the staff that made our stay memorable- attentive and smiling from the moment we arrived.
Then there are the other details that set this hotel above others: The 'Tomorrow's Happenings', the weather forecast and an abridged news sheet from our home country that are delivered to the room each morning. The superior Balinese cultural shows. The choice of pillows that ensure a comfortable night. The cocktail party.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good

My husband and I stayed at The Oberoi in Seminyak. We had never bern to Seminyak we usually stay in Sanur and altho we would probably go back to Sanur ...our stay at The Oberoi was magical we had a bit of a drama before we left WA and needed to chill out... this hotel had every thing we needed ..Beautiful room actually more than that really stunning the staff and management were fantastic service great. Such a shame about the rubbish along the beach..not at the Oberoi they clean their beach. But the government need to do something. ..if they want tourists to continue to visit. But I would definately recommend tgw The Oberoi

Dear JanCarnarvonwa,

Thank you very much for posting your review on Trip Advisor after your visit to The Oberoi, Bali.

I am delighted to read that you have enjoyed your visit to The Oberoi, Bali that the services, quality of accommodation, cuisine, and location have been enjoyed by you.

I am sorry to note that the beach was polluted during your visit. Seminyak beach is not always as dirty as you experienced on this visit. The normally debris-free stretch of Seminyak Beach began to experience rubbish washing ashore around the New Year. Heavy rains and stormy seas cause debris from rivers to wash out to the sea and wash onto Bali's beaches. The Oberoi, Bali has employed a full time cleanup crew to clean the debris from the beach every day. I have also required every staff member to join in our weekly Friday morning cleanups in an effort to ensure everyone working at The Oberoi, Bali knows what a crime it is to pollute. We will continue our efforts to lobby the government for change, educate, preserve and protect this beach. We are also very active in a turtle conservation programme. Sea turtles land on Seminyak beach from May to October and lay their eggs. We harvest and protect the eggs and then release them when they hatch. Our efforts increase their chances of survival. All beaches in Indonesia are public property and therefore difficult to control from a single hotel. The pollution of Indonesia's beaches is indeed a problem and we are at the forefront of educating the community and cleaning beaches on this island. I am very sorry that the beach was in such a state during your visit.

Thank you for having stayed with us, and we all look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back to The Oberoi, Bali.

Idyllic beachfront setting of thatched private villas set amongst beautifully laid out gardens with some classic Balinese courtyard settings and water features. Superb individualized service from start to finish. Great facilities, pool and restaurant. So quiet, except the sound of the waves on the long golden beach : -) One of the few places in the south where the word "Paradise" can be justifiably used. And yet, just a few steps from the entrance one is so close to the hustle and bustle of vibrant, up-end Seminyak.

Reviewed 19 January 2014

I went with my mother, father and sister this time last year and was compelled to write a review something I am not usually inclined to do.
Absolutely first class from start to finish, every aspect of the establishment was exemplary. Staff from all departments of the resort were so helpful and friendly I almost felt embarrassed, the restaurant was spectacular, the physical state of the resort, from rooms to gardens, was kept in an absolutely IMPECCABLE manner and every other conceivable aspect of the resort was excellent.Two quick stories will help demonstrate this:

1. During a severe storm an enormous tree was uprooted very close to our room, causing massive damage to the surrounding environment (no buildings were damaged, two coconut trees however were not so lucky). At the first sign of daylight, an entire crew of greenskeepers was assembled with cutting tools, thinking that the cleanup of this mess would last days, my father and I went for a walk. Upon our return three hours later, we were astonished to find that the entire tree had been dismantled, and new trees and shrubs had actually been RE-planted, amazing!
2. A few days in to our stay my sister fell very ill with the infamous "Bali Belly", resulting in us contacting reception. Immediately they phoned a doctor to attend to her, within half an hour staff had visited her room with fresh coconuts to keep hydrated, this service lasted in to the night. In the morning she received flowers along with a "get well soon" card from the staff.

These go quite a long way in explaining the quality of our stay at the Oberoi, when I return to Bali I will most certainly be back.
Bravo!

The Oberoi is a classic, one of the finest hotels in the world. Semanyak itself is an over-commercialized nightmare of chain stores and package tourists, but when you're on the grounds of the Oberoi, you're a world away. The staff here is wonderfully kind and attentive. We enjoyed morning yoga classes with a world-class teacher, a perfect beach for boogie-boarding, and a cool, beautiful, velvety pool. The breakfasts are world-class. Dance performances at night are worth sitting around and watching. The fitness center is small but adequate.

We stayed for four nights at the Oberoi Bali in Seminyak. We selected this hotel because we had previously stayed at several Oberoi hotels in India with excellent experiences. The property is on the beach and spread out among a number of individual buildings with 1-2 units per building. The rooms are very comfortable and well-appointed. The landscaping is beautiful and well-maintained.
The hotel has an excellent restaurant and separate bar/cafe. Sunsets are incredible. The pool is also very nice.
Trips around Bali arranged by the hotel with car and driver were very interesting and reasonably priced.
Service is absolutely perfect in all respects without exception from every employee from front desk, to waiters, room staff, pool attendants, etc. We spoke personally with the General Manager John at some length when he greeted us shortly after our arrival.
The experience was absolutely and totally excellent in all respects.
