Review: Viceroy Bali


Book A Stay

The multi-award winning 5 Star Viceroy Bali, one of the best hotels in Ubud Bali, is just 5 minutes drive to the thriving culture and arts center of Ubud, yet the location feels like another world. This is the perfect place to relax and renew in utter tranquillity.


Viceroy Bali is family owned and operated, a rare affair for 5-star hotels in Bali and is situated only a 5-minute drive from the bustling Ubud shops.

Style & Character

Wandering into the hotel’s open lobby with its marble floor and high-vaulted bamboo and grass-thatched roof immediately washes away any stresses. A water feature trickles nearby, and down a grand staircase, the resort opens up into a compact, cool sanctuary clinging to the side of the strikingly verdant Valley of the Kings.


With only 25 pool villas, Viceroy Bali offers absolute privacy for those seeking the elegant and exotic in travel. A soft, artfully manicured garden rolls gently off to the side of the main infinity-edged pool overlooking the jungle valley opposite.

Each of the spacious 25 villas is exquisitely furnished and exceedingly private. Moreover, each villa has its own heated pool, outdoor cabana, and unrivaled views of the surrounding valley and dense jungle. Adding to the serenity, the rolling river’s constant calm, cool sound rises from the valley ravine as guests sit on their private terraces and relax.

Food & Drink

Nearby, a path leads down to CasCades restaurant, the beating heart of the resort with its 10-meter cone-shaped grass thatched roof. Here Belgian executive chef Nic inspires Balinese and Western creations imbued with a classic European sensibility. The perfect setting for a romantic or special occasion, the restaurant offers world-class dining using only the freshest and highest quality international and local produce.


General Manager Anthony Syrowatka explains, “what we’ve created is an uber-luxury haven… my family (the owners of the hotel) are on-site every day with a passionate and wonderful staff of 140. For guests, there’s a sense of something they can’t describe – they get this amazing feeling of living in the jungle, a location filled with beauty, but they also feel the warmth and kindness from the staff that cannot be taught, a sense of being part of the family.” Viceroy Bali is truly a sanctuary in paradise, a lovers’ retreat.
