The Oberoi Bali is one of the sweetest places on the planet...I've stayed there many times over the years. The hotel is becoming more of an oasis then ever . Gone are the surrounding rice fields ... Lost to the shops, restaurants and residences. The beach to our plastic consumerism .Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice , clean , good location but needs a some spark ! Arrival a LITLE flat on the warm n fussy feeling , needs a better welcome committee .Genuine Expedia guest review
"What a pure delight!"
Outstanding service with a staff that made the experience even more delightful. The grounds were natural but impeccable and had the charm of old Balinese style. Breakfast overlooking the ocean with menu (no buffet) service and delicious offerings. The breeze was constant off the ocean and the waves were even lit by the hotel in the night to see the […] view. Service by the pool included ample towels, cold water replenished often, sunglass cleaning, complimentary fruit skewers at noon, sorbet at 2pm and afternoon tea at 4:30. They even offered a flag if there was something you needed in a jiffy. This resort only has 73 villas but a staff that could accommodate twice that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Older hotel, spectacularly maintained"
The Oberoi sits on beautiful grounds, but the rooms are old and very small (at least the one we stayed in). The service was great, but you can find a better hotel (with a bigger room) that is inclusive of breakfast at half the price. We wouldn't recommend spending your money here. While beautiful, the pool is very small - although they do have a private […] beach you can use. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Best service either my wife or I have experienced. Little things. Fixing a curtain rod we'd dislodged, moving an umbrella that was threatening to stop shading us, remembering names, being always almost weirdly friendly. The grounds are fantastic. A real hideout from hectic seminyak. Definitely stay here if you can splurge. Definitely.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Balinese style at finest"
Looked at W Hotel just down road but was very bland western with a techno clubbie scene at pool. Also looked at the Legian and the Seminyak and both are at least one star below Oberoi. The Oberoi is very private with world class service, food and great access to the Seminyak scene. The beach near all of these hotels in Seminyak is not nice. We didn't […] go in water a single time and only used the beach for strolls. If you want a beach scene like Carribean go elsewhere in Bali. The upside is that Seminyak is in a cool neighborhood.

"Relax and enjoy!"
Service is 5 star! Great location, near great trend restaurants and bars. Great for a couple or friends! Good for relaxing...if you are looking for action, check W Retreat which is trendy!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and very friendly hotel"
If you want to relax, have a quiet time and be pampered in Bali, the Oberoi is the right place, with not a lot of bungalows and villas - so you never feel overwhelmed or rushed. My wife and I stayed there for 6 nights, had fantastic food and shows at the restaurant, great swimming pool - which is much better than the beaches in Bali, because of the […] manmade pollution. The breakfast is excellent, fruits and options of western or asian on the menu. The bar is also very good with snacks, salads and good drinks. The rooms are very clean and room service is superb, 24 hr. The WI FI worked perfectly, and if you have all international TV channels. This hotel team thinks of you, and it is always doing its best to make you feel comfortable, from the general manager to the cleaning crew. The hotel offers a variety of tours, and we have made the full day guided tour, that we recommend to anyone. Visit the excellent wood, painting and silver handcrafts/stores, the Volcano and lake at the north of the island, as well as the best Balinese temple, coffee & rice plantation, in a safe minivan with aircon. We would have stayed longer if we could, one of the best hotels in Asia. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The perfect private hideaway in busy South Bali"
Idyllic beachfront setting of thatched private villas set amongst beautifully laid out gardens with some classic Balinese courtyard settings and water features. Superb individualized service from start to finish. Great facilities, pool and restaurant. So quiet, except the sound of the waves on the long golden beach : -) One of the few places in the […] south where the word "Paradise" can be justifiably used. And yet, just a few steps from the entrance one is so close to the hustle and bustle of vibrant, up-end Seminyak (Bali's "Chelsea"). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A quiet retreat close to the action in Seminyak"
The Oberoi's location is perfect for being in the heart of Seminyak, but is a quiet retreat where you can leave the world behind at the gate. Restaurants & shops are close walking distance, if you can rouse yourself away from the pool/beach area. In true Balinese style, staff is warm, friendly, & efficient. Will definitely stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Oberoi IS luxury !!!"
Cabanas were completely MORE than what we had expected. From the bed, the furnishings and the bathroom, this place spared nothing. The bathroom will blow you away !! For those people that read the negative comments about the beds, get over it already!!! The beds are just fine. So you have to roll and hang off the bed a little because the overhanging […] frame ? Not a big deal. Breakfast room service was great, food was always hot and we stayed on the far end of the resort. Pool staff were helpful and always there with a smile. Get the couples spa treatment, well worth the cost. Stayed here 4 days and didn't even leave the resort. WHY SHOULD WE, they had everything right on hand. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Delightful Oberoi, wonderful old Bali"
We loved our stay and wouldn't hesitate to come back. We liked everything about it but especially the friendly staff. Everyone seemed to go much further than needed to take care of a problem or make us happy. It was 100%enjoyable. We also liked it's location close to shopping, and several restaurants that were walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nirvana on earth !"
My husband and I planned to stay at the Oberoi for half of our stay then move to Puri Wulandari (in Ubud) for the second half, but after visiting many other hotels in the surrounding Seminyak area and in Ubud we realized that there isn't another place comparable to the Oberoi so we came right back to it and remained there for the entire 8 days of our […] honeymoon. The staff here is made up of the warmest and most courteous people we've ever encountered in our lives. Everyone knew our names the first day of arrival and treated us like family until the day we left. We missed the Oberoi so much after leaving that we literally cried for 2 hours. The property is like a beautiful garden carved out of heaven. It was lush with greens and frangipani flowers, orchids, water lily and lotus ponds, tuberose, banana leaves, palm trees, statues of beautiful hindu gods, and the most manicured grass I've seen in ages. The rooms (we stayed in the Lanai) are like separate condos/villas. You get privacy but at the same time feel a sense of community as soon as you step out into the garden and pool area. The food is superb and so is the service. Boogie boarding in the evening time as the sun is setting cannot be compared to anything else on earth. The most beautiful and vibrant sunsets I've ever seen in the world. I love this place, I cannot wait to go back. There isn't a hotel that I could see myself living in permanently, except this one.

"Best hotel experience"
First the hotel is so beautiful. We were looking for a hotel that had a tropical feel to it and that wasn't like many other modern hotel rooms. The rooms were really nice and very clean. The staff at this hotel exceeded our expectations. They were so friendly and always extremely helpful. The hotel is situated right next to the beach, so taking strolls […] on the beach in the morning or evening are extremely convenient. It is a family friendly hotel but there were mostly couples of all ages there. It's also really close to great restaurants and shopping. We really have nothing bad to say about this hotel. I just can't say enough about the service we received. When we go back to Bali we will be staying at this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Oberoi, Seminyak, Bali"
All the staff are cordial and greet you by name. It's as if they had a cheat sheet or had to study the guest names every night. Wireless internet was free and had good signal strength in both the rooms and outside. For U.S. guests, they even have adapters ready for your appliances in the room. Beach is clean and patrolled by lifeguard. Very relaxing […] atmosphere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel has authentic Balinese charm with staff that offered superior service. Every employee there made me feel welcome and was highly sensitive to my needs. It was by far the most memorable resort I have ever stayed at; I plan to stay at the Oberoi everytime I come bak to Bali.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was by far the best hotel experience I have ever had. The staff were wonderful, huge welcoming smiles from morning to evening and they couldn't do enough for you. The grounds are beautifully maintained with constant gardening. Breakfast was wonderful, I would definitely recommend adding breakfast to your room rate if it's available, it's a fantastic […] value versus paying for it at the hotel. The pool is lovely and they give you unlimited bottles of water throughout the day along with mini bottles of sunscreen. The lounge chairs are huge with comfortable cushins, fluffy towels and they even give you mini pillows. We loved the room, great bed linens, updated bathroom and wonderful toiletries. The only negative I could say about the room was the wood surround around the bed, it made getting in and out of bed a bit of a pain. While it is a fairly expensive hotel, my husband and I thought that it was very much worth the money for what was an amazing and unforgettable experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Absolutely excellence - but location lets it down"
The service, and staff, are absolutely excellent... to the extreme. For example, even providing a little table to put your bag on at the table! They say hello whenever you meet, and one guy came running after us with an umbrella when it started raining! Food is excellent, really high end, with a price to match. The location lets it down for two reasons: 1. […] The street is a fairly low-end cheapy tourist street with vendors hassling you. For our two days we ate only at the hotel, as we found everything outside to be cheap and cheerful rather than quality. Lots of younger tourists, smoking, drinking, etc. 2. The beach is not great. Lots of debris washed up, although the hotel clearly spends a lot of time trying to stay on top of it. Weather was bad for our stay which obviously isn't the hotel's fault.

This resort is amazing. Location is perfect and it's relaxed and tranquil. It's nicely tucked away from the street craziness and in perfect proximity to everything you need. Staff are friendly and everyone looks after you.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is somewhat old in style, and the rooms are a little tired. Nevertheless, very comfortable and very clean. The delight is a lot of garden area for a limited number of rooms spread throughout the garden. Lovely. The food in the restaurants. The highlight is the service. The staff were excellent in all parts of the hotel, with many surprising […] touches of real class to make the guest feel special. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Indulgent, blissful and calming"
We loved our week's stay at The Oberoi. Everyday was spent by the pool which was at a perfect temperature. All the staff at the hotel were courteous, friendly and extremely helpful.The food was exceptional at all the dining options...we especially loved the Indonesian-themed buffet. All dining venues were open-air enhanced by the intoxicating frangipani […] perfumed breeze. The gardens were beautifully manicured and the standard, lanai, garden view room was luxurious and beautiful. The attention to detail ensured that everything was perfect.

Stayed for 6 nights. The place was exactly what we wanted. The staff were impeccable, the place was quiet, and the rooms and facilities very luxurious whilst also having a strong Bali connection. The hotel was right on the door step to most of the activities, restaurants, and beach clubs in Seminyak. We will definitely be staying again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A five star hotel, a more than 5 star experience"
Put it simple, a perfect for me. Here you find tranquility in the busy street. You choose either ways. I found myself in an elegant tropical garden, in the breeze from the sea, and in the sound the tides.Genuine Expedia guest review
Had a lovely 7 night stay in a garden lanai. The staff were exceptional. Our only criticism would be the size of the room and the outdoor patio which was in full sun all day with no umbrella. Having stayed in Oberoi hotels in India I would say that although we had a wonderful time I think the hotel is a little overpriced for Bali. That said one is probably […] paying for the space, the location and the exclusivity. Overall a wonderful holiday. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"the best in Bali?"
It was a superb hotel with fabulous service. Hard to believe there is a better hotel in Bali. The peaceful setting is on the beach and covers a large area. Rooms in the garden were great. Service was unbeatable. If you wanted other restaurants, bars and shops , they are just outside the hotel.It may be on the expensive side, but we felt it delivered […] fair value.

Great hotel. Awesome position next to ku de ta and other great restaurants. Room was great, very clean and staff were lovely and helpful. Hotel was very quiet though and guests were an older crowd. I was hoping for a bit more atmosphere and more kids by the pool for our bub to play with. Still a great stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Amazing service and top location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the service was phenomenal. Whilst the hotel is actually pretty close to some of the more lively areas, you wouldn't know this unless you ventured out - it seemed very secluded and relaxing. The restaurants, whilst a touch expensive, had a great range on the menu and the food was an excellent stan […] dard. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Long Weekend Break"
Staff were excellent – nothing was too much trouble. Villa with private pool cleaned / tidied a number of times a day. Vila’s by the main entrance can hear the club next door “beat” into the early hours. Villa’s a bit dated – but this is Bali. Oberoi food nice / well prepared. Overall a relaxing, laid-back weekend.Genuine Expedia guest review
It would be 5's throughout but the bed was too hard for meGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a great hotel, but specially the service is fantastic. There are a couple more luxury ones ahead of the Oberoi, but this one makes you feel you really are in Bali... everything is so Balinese, from the room, to the swimming pool and gardens and the smiles and kind greetings of the hotel staff. They all know you by your name and remember your […] likings. Unforgettable experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We choose bali for our honeymoon because of the oberoi location and hospitality. It was indeed made memorable by the hotel staff. Small surprises and attention to detail exemplifies Oberoi. We choose the romantic dinner at the beach, the setting was perfect, food great, apart from the issue that we got served beef starters unknowingly in the majestic […] indian meal (being Hindus we don't eat beef), which we shared as feedback with the GM. Overall the experience is worth it's stay at the Oberoi bali. We would gladly go back and stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Most Luxurious Hotel Ever"
The Oberoi Bali delivered the greatest luxury per dollar that I've ever encountered in a hotel. The rooms were wonderful, the grounds gorgeous, and the pool and public spaces truly luxurious. Service was absolutely top notch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel right by the beach, with lovely gardens"
Walking into the Oberoi is a pleasant change from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak. The rooms (luxury lanai room) are well set out, with a well designed bathroom. The beds are very comfortable. The staff were unfailingly helpful and attentive, and the morning 'spectacle cleaning round' by the pool was very welcome.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The best beach hotel in Seminyak"
Beautiful hotel, great service, great location. Stayed here for one night during our honeymoon - it was fantastic! I would highly recommend it - it was worth the splurge!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

I have been travelling for 30 years and the staff at the Oberoi Bali rate right at the top of my best ever experiences. The hotel itself is low key, relaxed and impeccably maintained and managed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"best service ever .... good situation very calm"
nice grounds . very calm peacefull and protected from the hustle of some part of BaliGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel on the best stretch of beach"
This hotel was absolutely superb, very exclusive and peaceful. The garden lanai that we had was more like a villa nestled among the lush tropical gardens. The hotel staff were second to none, very professional, friendly and genuinely caring and helpful. The service was impeccable. The hotel is also conveniently placed about 10 mins walk from the heart […] of Seminyak but the hotel staff were more than happy to arrange taxis to and from some amazing restaurants. La Lucciola, Sarong and Chez Gado Gado I can highly recommend. I will definitely look forward very much to returning to the Oberoi when I next visit Bali Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best of Bali resorts if you want to really relax"
Beautiful setting, lovely rooms and wonderful staffGenuine Expedia guest review
The Oberoi could do with a facelift as the smell of mould in and on the surrounds of our Lanai was overpowering!! I spoke to other holiday makers and they too had the same musty smell in their accommodation. I realize its over 30 years old and being by the ocean can make it damp but the accommodation needs to be AIRED on a regular basis and the mould […] scrubbed off the outside walls to try to eradicate the musty smell. The staff were very accommodating and professional in every aspect so no complaints there. Except for our Lanai being musty our experience at the Oberoi was a pleasant one! Costing is a bit over the top.. 6 Star prices for 4 star accommodation. One other comment.. if you are travelling with a friend not a partner they do not have separate beds, there is only ONE king bed that Cannot be completely separated, except by a piece of wood? Note: The resort also has pretty good security i.e.: 24 hour guards at front of the resort but the guard at the beachside leaves after 11pm so anyone can walk into the resort from the beachside!

I had a fantastic solo stay in Oberoi Bali. The team of service staff is well trained. They make you feel very warmly welcome and comfortable. I am pleasantly surprised with the attention to details. The reception check in staff noted my checked in day was my birthday. The F&B team presented me a sweet surprise with a birthday cake and flowers that […] evening. Even when I ordered room service, the party wished me a Happy B day! It made my lonesome birthday sweet and memorable. The room is extremely cosy. I love the bathroom best. I enjoyed the beach walk in the morning and evening. Sitting by the pool facing the sea in the day was wonderful with immaculate service from the staff. The surrounding is also very romantic in the evening. I hope to be back for a romantic getaway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"We will be Back"
The Oberoi was an absolutely delightful experience from start to finish. The grounds and facilities are superb, the rooms luxurious and the location is excellent - quiet and peaceful yet on the beach and easy walking distance to all of Seminyak's key attractions. However, it was the Oberoi staff that made the stay most enjoyable, from reception, spa/gym, […] concierge, housekeeping - even the ground keepers, were so friendly and helpful at all times. I would highly recommend this hotel, especially to couples as there were not a lot of kids splashing around or making excessive noise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Stunning location. Beautiful hotel. Beautiful gardens. Beautiful view of the sea. The pool is outdated. The bed was awkward - my bed had a large wooden frame around it making it awkward to climb on and off otherwise it was comfortable to sleep in. Otherwise the Oberoi is beautiful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful grounds and lovely staff but .........."
Very hot and no air conditioning in the hotel lobby was the first thing that struck me. We found the rooms comfortable and the bathrooms excellent. The beds do have a large wooden frame surrounding it which makes it awkward to get in and out. Breakfast was very average (toast and pastries were sub-standard and no espresso coffee offered, we had to venture […] across to Ku De Ta each morning for a decent coffee) although the setting in the grounds were lovely. Staff were very good, efficient, friendly and eager to please. These issues wouldn't be so noticeable if the price was more reasonable, but we took 2 rooms at $450 per room for 4 nights, so at those prices you expect top notch but it wasn't the case. On saying that, the grounds are spectacular and staff great but the hotel does lack in many ways for the prices they charge. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
