“Instant relaxation”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

This is simply a stand-out hotel in a beautiful location. We were well taken care of from arrival to departure. The room was fantastic, in one of the lanais dotted around the immaculate grounds. We were also incredibly well fed. Breakfast was amazing; so much choice and (for once) not a buffet with everything prepared to order. We also chose to dine on 4 nights out of 7 in the hotel's own restaurant. The Executive Chef presides over one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten in (and I eat in a lot!). But the thing that makes this hotel so special - beyond the location, the rooms, the facilities and the wonderful food - is the staff. I've never seen so many smiles, all apparently genuine. Nothing was too much trouble, not even removing a gecko from our room at 11.30 at night! It's a very long way from London, yet I suspect we will return before too long.

Room Tip: We had the cheapest room (garden facing lanai) and it was outstanding.

Dear Dude 2305,

Thank you for posting your review on TripAdvisor after your visit to The Oberoi, Bali.

I am sorry that your room had a bit of an odour. Sometimes the thatched roofs on the authentic Balinese buildings do emit a damp odour after heavy rains. I am glad that you enjoyed the swimming pool, cuisine and location. Sometimes ocean currents bring debris ashore in the wet rainy season. We do employ a full time crew to kep the area surrounding The Oberoi clean and the stretch of beach in from of the resort free of debris.

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

We are already looking forward to returning to the Oberoi; and we only just arrived home.

What strikes you when you arrive is, firstly, how big the resort is and, secondly, how few rooms/villas there are nestled among fastidiously kept gardens. There is not a hint of hustle and bustle at what is an amazingly peaceful oasis in the middle of Seminyak. There is always a place for you by the pool, at breakfast or at the very social afternoon tea.

The staff are the jewel in the crown of the Oberoi. No request is to small or any trouble at all, the resort hums as a result. I would rate the service overall as nothing short of exceptional, not for Bali, but globally.

The food is also a highlight. When travelling we generally don't take breakfasts at where we are staying, opting to explore what is on offer out and about. On the recommendation of a friend we took the breakfast when we booked, and were extremely glad we did. Delicious would be an understatement, made even better by the view out over the beach and the light sea breeze. An awesome way to start the day.

Overall, the Oberoi is a class act in every respect. We can't wait until our next stay.

Room Tip: There a no bad rooms, no short cuts with the design means all the rooms are awesome.

The grande dame of Seminyak delivers blue chip service in a hip resort. Other hotels on this stretch may be newer and glossier but this is the real deal. It was designed by the same architect as the Four Seasons and having stayed there I can see the similarities. Traditional lanais nestle in private gardens overlooking an uncluttered stretch of beach with a nightly ringside seat of the famous Bali sunset. The restaurant is great, the spa is blissful and the staff are exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble for these lovely people so lie back and enjoy the special touches which even include someone to polish your sunglasses by the pool...heaven

The Oberoi is a luxurious and quiet haven, an escape from the frenetic pace outside the resort walls. From the friendly welcome upon arrival to the exceptional service throughout our stay, we were impressed with every aspect of the resort. The grounds are beautiful. The staff is attentive and very friendly. Our private lanai was intimate and exceptional; the bedding was top rate. The food service, from breakfast to romantic dinners to room service, was outstanding.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Oberoi while on our honeymoon 2 weeks ago. The General Manager, John, made our stay very memorable and he really went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful time! He honestly cares about making sure his guests enjoy their stay to the fullest! A big thank you for the room with the pool and the private dinner on the terrace on our first night - it was just what we needed after a long day of travel.

The service at this hotel is amazing. We weren't big fans of Seminyak in general as the public beaches were very dirty, but the Oberoi did a great job of keeping their beach clean, the service at the pool during the day may be the best we've ever experienced and the food is excellent! Chef Enrico gave us some special courses on our last night and being from Chicago, we are big on food....and it's excellent here. We usually don't eat at the resorts much during our stays, but the food here was too good to pass up. The cocktail hour that John and the staff hosted for all of the guests one night was really special as well. It really brought everyone together and gave us a chance to meet some people and get to know some of the lovely staff.

Seminyak may not be up everyone's alley as it is very crowded and busy, but this resort is a wonderful retreat from that and everyone was so welcoming that we truly hated to leave. We hope to see John and the rest of his staff again some day.

Room Tip: This place is located right on the beach so you can hear the waves rolling in at night, simply wonde...

Dear Chicago Michelle2,

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 have enjoyed your visit here and that the gardens, services, quality of accommodation, location and Balinese atmosphere have been enjoyed by you.

It is a shame that bad weather had caused lots of debris from the ocean to wash ashore all along Seminyak beach during the course of your stay. I assure you that Seminyak beach is not always like this. The normally debris-free stretch of Seminyak Beach began to experience rubbish washing ashore during the Christmas New Year period. We have had very heavy rains and stormy seas resulting in lots of unwanted debris washing ashore. All beaches in Indonesia are public property and difficult to control from a single hotel. The pollution of Indonesia's beaches is national concern 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.

Warm regards,

This was our fourth stay at The Oberoi and, as always, it was fabulous!
From the moment we met at the airport we were made to feel like family even being given the same Lanai as on our previous stays!!
The service in all parts of the hotel was exceptional and the attention to detail faultless.
it is amazing how quickly the stresses of everyday life as soon as we arrive at The Oberoi and you feel like you have been on holiday for ever!!

This is due in NO small part to John and his team to whom I say a very big thank you for amking our holiday special once again.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are fantastic.
