If there is a place on Earth where the Roman idea of Elysium has taken form, it would have to be the Chedi Club in Ubud. Set in five hectares of beautiful gardens, in the midst of tranquil rice fields, and featuring only twenty individual villas, this hotel is truly unique in Bali.
Formerly the estate of prominent are collector Hendra Hadiprana, the luxuriously appointed villas feature unique Balinese artwork from his collection. The hotel is situated about ten minutes drive from the centre of Ubud and the hotel car will shuttle you back and forth throughout the day. Your butler will provide a hotel mobile phone and you can call for to car to bring you back to the hotel at your convenience.
A stay at this property is about utter relaxation and escape from the busy world around us. Wake up to the breathtaking sunrises over Mount Agung, the highest and holiest mountain in Bali, take a stroll through the estate’s extensive gardens with its lotus ponds or relax by the tranquil pool or in the Balinese spa.
Complimentary afternoon tea and evening cocktails are served throughout the resort and or, by your butler, in your own villa. One of the the most refreshing drinks on the cocktail menu is a vodka with lime juice and freshly crushed purple basil from the Chedi’s own wonderful herb garden.
Villas are generously proportioned, many with their own large pool, and a beautiful over-sized outdoor stone tub for a relaxing bath. The minibar is complementary with soft drinks and local beer, as well as large decanters of gin, vodka and whiskey. You will also receive a complementary laundry service during your stay, allowing for six pieces per person per night.
Whether you explore the highlands of Bali from here, partake in the hotel’s yoga or cooking classes or simply do nothing but eat delicious food and take in the serene scenery, I cannot imagine that you could want for anything more. Amongst the many amazing south-east Asian hotels I have stayed in over the years, the Chedi with its wonderful staff is truly a treasure.Tags: Holiday Tourism Travel
