An estate turned boutique hideaway, this 20-room hotel has the feel of a private residence, thanks to former owner and collector Hendra Hadiprana’s formidable art collection, much of which graces the walls. The tranquil setting, with views of Ubud’s famous jade-green rice paddies, is a far cry from the tourist bustle of Bali’s beach towns: the daily yoga classes and spa treatments like the signature Chedi Jade Massage or Indonesian cream bath, which combines a deep-conditioning hair treatment with scalp, shoulders and arm massage, add to the Zen vibe.
In the Area
See the fabled Balinese countryside through the eyes of an insider on a walk through the rice paddies and local villages with your butler, who can facilitate authentic experiences like meeting a shaman or eating street food. Visit the nearby Goa Gajah, a UNESCO-listed 9th century temple full of elephant carvings or hit the well-regarded Agung Rai Museum of Art, or ARMA, which houses a collection of significant Balinese artists along with a selection of works from expat talents. Treat yourself to a multi-course French-Balinese fusion adventure at Mozaic, one of Indonesia’s most acclaimed restaurants, or opt for breezy people-watching at Ary’s Warung, which dishes up Indonesian bites like coconut prawns along with European-style staples like gazpacho and goat’s cheese salad.
How to Get There
The location of Chedi is peaceful and beautiful. There are extensive grounds, full of artwork, set amongst the rice paddies. The hotel is only ten minutes from Ubud, and a car service is always available to transport you into town. The pool is gorgeous and never crowded. Food was superb and so generous- afternoon tea, cocktails and mini bar in the rooms are all free. We had massages and they were top quality. Best of all we’re the staff who were charming and attentive. We absolutely loved Chedi and are booking our visit for next year.
Amazing service and touch points for their guest. They think of everything and have someone assigned to you to take care of everything you need that gets to know you and makes your stay very special. It’s quiet , and away from the crowds yet close enough to everything if you need to get out.
Just wanna share my blissful moments with everyone. This hotel is extraordinary... the service, accommodation I could not ask for more. Discover a haven of relaxation. A must visit resort in Ubud, Bali.
