We were in mid-September 2012 as the second destination on our Bali holiday spending 5 nights at the Viceroy Bali.
The Viceroy is a bit outside of Ubud. However, there is always a "free" shuttle service to Ubud available, we have also often used repeatedly. The hotel itself is located in a beautiful valley that gives you the feeling of being in the middle of the jungle. Opposite times, however, already noted that by always further deforestation for agriculture (banana plantations, rice fields, ...) pushed back the original miraculous nature ever will (of course the fact the hotel has no influence).
The first look at the arrival by Lodge on the main pool and the valley behind it is fantastic. We received a very friendly and an electric buggy directly to our "Deluxe Terrace Villas" with a great pool (not heated - at the outdoor temperature but it was after a few moments in the water still okey) gave us a fantastic view of the. Sometimes looked at distance from a couple of monkeys passing or it could be observed interesting birds. The room itself was really nice.
Since my friend had problems with her legs problems, we felt the full day / free buggy service was very pleasant, as it at least for the lowest bungalows, is something sporty to the very top.
While ensurers stay 4 more bungalows were built. Until that time, I was not aware that it is possible to build the inconspicuous and silent. For this high praise, that this was not perceived as disturbing. A highlight is definitely the food. Fantastically were e.g. for breakfast the "Eggs Benedict". Min dinner is despite the great opportunities in Ubud (see other reviews), but definitely a must for the "Cascades".
The atmosphere is really great and the bar to leave a nightcap. The prices are as usual in 5 stars hotels in Bali, of course European. Who but an overnight stay in such a hotel should be able to make the live well with it.
The staff was helpful and mostly friendly. Sometimes one would have one or the other person a little less desired casting (very different). The English pronunciation was partly the staff is not very clear. But the few optimization approaches should not hide in a wonderful Viceroy Bali away. We would always choose this hotel again and recommend it to all travelers Bali!
