If you are planning your honeymoon or simply a romantic getaway, then The Viceroy Bali should be your first (& only) option. I’ve stayed at dozens of 5-star properties and the one I keep coming back to is The Viceroy Bali. The property is located in Ubud, an area known for its spectacular showcasing of local artisans and craftsmen. Ubud is a quiet town in the uplands of Bali where there is an abundance of rice fields and holy sites. Mimicking the overall vibe of Ubud, The Viceroy Bali is in a secluded location in the midst of a tropical rain forest. A private shuttle is available to take you to and from the town’s center throughout the majority of the day and a visit to Ubud is well worth the visit!
I decided to update my previous post about The Viceroy Bali because two years and over three dozen luxury properties later, I still find myself falling for my first love.
Every villa at The Viceroy Bali is large and spacious and comes with a private heated plunge pool, leaving you with virtually no reason to leave your room! The villas are simple and elegant: there is a comfortable couch in front of a large flat screen TV, a massive king sized bed, a walk in closet, and a gorgeous deep soaking tub. The 25 villas are stacked along the hillside, each overlooking the tropical jungle – the views are stunning everywhere you look. The Viceroy Bali is a privately owned property despite having the same name as the large hotel group.
Breakfast is served at the properties own restaurant, Cascades, which also overlooks the jungle. I recommend that you don’t sit out in the sunny area as it gets incredibly hot even early in the morning! For a more extensive look at the dining experience at Cascades, please see my previous post.
Just steps away from Cascades Restaurant, is the Viceroy’s breathtaking infinity pool. This area of the hotel has been featured in hundreds of magazine’s and rightfully so. To this day, it is one of the most incredible pools that I had the honor of swimming in. To get the best spot, I recommend going early in the morning especially around the time of sunrise.
For the best sunrise views, step out of the property and walk to the right where you will be greeted by a massive rice field. Bali has some of the most incredible sunrises & sunsets I’ve ever seen and you won’t want to miss out on the one near the Viceroy!
