Perfect for couples and groups alike
Are you searching for the perfect honeymoon location or romantic holiday? Perhaps you are looking to sneak away for a relaxing trip with a group of friends? Enter the Viceroy Bali. This intimate resort in Ubud, comprised of only 25 villas, has a real wow factor. Starting with the spacious and beautifully designed villas made of thatch. Each villa boasts marble bathrooms, exquisite views and private plunge pools.
An award-winning restaurant and a bar with a view
The food at CasCades restaurant is something out of a dream, offering unique cuisines and colorfully prepared plates. Each one better is than the last. I recommend ordering drinks at the Viceroy Bar, one of Bali’s most praised cocktail venues. This was one of my favorite places to unwind at sunset. Particularly, at one of the booths overlooking the valley.
Not all spas are created equal!
You will know what I mean when you experience the Lembah Spa. It is heaven on earth! Sitting atop the Petanu River Gorge, this tranquil spa offers a range of treatments focusing on healing and wellness. I opted for a 90 minute in-room massage which was remarkable beyond words.
Get out and explore the town of Ubud
Ubud certainly doesn’t lack in entertainment. With a vibrant feel, upbeat nightlife, incredible artisan shops, health-food cafes and many art galleries, there is always something to do. Additionally, for a vegetarian like me, Ubud always delivers. There are so many delicious plant-based meals to be found in the area. And of course, options for the meat lover as well.
Adventure and convenience at your fingertips
Ubud sits inland, surrounded by gorgeous rice terraces. If you enjoy exploration like I do, I highly recommend booking a rice paddy trek. They offer a wide variety of excursions, but this one is my favorite. There is nothing quite like taking a long stroll through the terraces, with the sun beaming down, illuminating the expansive surroundings and terrain. Don’t forget to bring a hat. You will thank me later!
Furthermore, the Viceroy Bali is the only hotel in the Ubud district with a helicopter pad. You can book private helicopter tours of Ubud and the surrounding islands while staying here. Moreover, you can arrange a private helicopter transfer to avoid the 45 minute drive to and from the airport. Now that’s what I call a grand entrance and exit!
Here is a list of more activities and tours which can be booked while staying at this luxury resort in Ubud:
- Yoga sessions
- Cooking classes
- Golfing days
- Harley Davidson tours and rentals
- Elephant safari park
- Various cycling and hiking excursions
- Coffee plantation tour
The Viceroy Bali experience in summary
The Viceroy Bali is a beautiful retreat in the mountain foothills of Ubud. In my opinion, this property is best suited for a romantic escape due to its privacy and level of service. Although, anyone would take great pleasure in staying here, including small groups and business travelers. With an ideal setting for relaxation, coupled with endless options for adventure, this luxury resort in Ubud will leave you longing to come back for more.
