The Oberoi is just fantastic. The staff and the service make this hotel, the team are all friendly and attentive but not overbearing. We visited for our honeymoon and we were made to feel so special at every interaction with the team. The location is perfect for exploring Seminyak and surrounding areas. Make sure to include the breakfast in your booking, the food and service are incredible and you sit right on the beach front to enjoy watching Seminyak beach come alive with runners, surfers and dog walkers. The only small thing to note is that this hotel is a little older than some in Bali, so don't expect a super modern looking it is more traditional. It is still extremely beautiful and the bathrooms are a perfect sanctuary. We hope to go back to Bali on day and the Oberoi will be first on our list of hotels to visit. Thank you John and the Oberoi team for helping to make our honeymoon perfect.
Easter @ The Oberoi, Bali
John Halpin has curated an amazing team of dedicated and professional people that make the Oberoi Bali a truly memorable experience. Chef Enrico Wahl adds a special touch of culinary magic that will not disappoint. Thank you Oberoi Bali!
This special property has finally reopened and its just like nothing has happened to maintain is excellence
What a very special relaxed elegant hotel, located on a spectacular piece of quiet and safe beach. Their signature purple and yellow umbrellas are back up, their staff are dressed in spectacularly colorful sarongs - purple, yellow, green... just stunning and not a khaki trouser and white shirt in sight! The welcome and check in by staff warmth and hospitality continued through to all staff. The Villas are large and very generously provided with toiletries, robes, mini bar, comfortable beds, good lighting, workspaces, large shower and sunken bath. The hotel is perfectly located for long walks along the beach or walks into shopping areas. The large gardens surround the large pool , bar and breakfast dining on the beachside. Great chef and innovative foods. If you are not used to the breaking of waves, bring some ear plugs, but I found it very relaxing. Internet fast. Has a small but satisfactory gym and a lovely Spa.
A Tranquil and Luxurious Property in the Heart of Bali's Best Neighbourhood
I’ve been to Bali multiple times and although I love to discover new properties, I always find myself returning to the Oberoi. It’s located in Seminyak, arguably the island’s most upmarket neighborhood, and offers guests a serene and luxurious experience from check-in until check-out. I loved that the Oberoi was designed in accordance with traditional Balinese architectural style - even the gym had teak walls and flooring. I just adored the authentic style of the Oberoi. It was such a tranquil place to stay, even though it was centrally located and just minutes away from some of the Bali’s liveliest beach clubs. The service here was second-to-none; the staff were so warm and friendly, and greeted us like old friends. I have to mention the authentic Indonesian cuisine at the Frangipani restaurant, too. Personally, I don’t enjoy westernized versions of Asian dishes and prefer them to be as spicy as flavorsome as possible, and the Frangipani certainly delivered. Overall, the Oberoi’s verdant grounds and pristine stretch of beach make for the perfect luxury escape. I’d say that this property is ideal for those who want to stay in the heart of the action, but also want a place where they can relax and really connect with Balinese culture. Until next time!
Based on our review system (you can check out our profile for the details on how we do the scoring system) we give this property a 9/10! To summarise this place was fantastic. It is not the most cost effective place to stay in Seminyak (on a 5 star scale) but it is well worth the investment. Location > Excellent. Best of both worlds here, literally on the beach and within 5 minute walk in the centre of Seminyak nightlife. > Close proximity to other 5 star resorts. > Walking distance from supermarkets, currency exchange, shopping malls and entertainment. The look & feel > The layout of the hotel (how easy it is to get from your room to the pool and reception, amongst other things) was great. One level, everything on the ground floor and easy to navigate. > It is kind of like being in a secret garden, very private but not lonely (and some great wildlife running around) > Rooms are well designed and great spacious bathroom. > Decor is influenced by its surroundings so whilst its not modern and fresh it really works with the property. Food & Drink > Hotel has great food and drinks but lacks atmosphere at times. This is because we like to hear people laugh, chat and a bit of music (and people watch). The staff have bundles of personality though which, is great and they really know their stuff! > Afternoon tea at the hotel is great and they put on a small traditional performance that really sets up the evening in a positive way. > The pool; food and cocktails are amazing, certainly recommend you try every cocktail on the menu (please drink semi-responsibly)! The SPA > You will certainly love this place. One of the best spa experiences we have had (and there have been many). the temperatures, the technique, the oils and ingredients were excellent. > Facilities were immaculate and so were the therapists. They have terrific knowledge and fantastic amount of experience. > The pricing is excellent compared to major cities around the world for a similar standard but its much more expensive than some of the local spas. But we don't like to travel for a spa experience so we made the most of the on-site spa and it was fantastic. You can check out some of the amazing places we tried outside of the Oberoi on our profile. We made our way through a lot of bars and restaurants some great local activities too! We travelled August, 2018.
