A haven of peace. This is not an exaggeration. This place is ideal for meditation. The Begawan Giri is designed for reverie in one of the 22 harmoniously-decorated suites in the centre of tropical nature.

    Location 10.0 /10

    The Begawan Giri is located a few miles from Ubud village, and can be reached in an hour by car from the airport.

    Accommodation 9.70 /10

    Twenty-two comfortable suites of different sizes (all the "standard" rooms are 430 feet˛) are allocated in the villas and each has its own unique style of architecture and different decor. The decor of each villa is obviously inspired by the theme of the water, land, fire, forest or wind. The Javanese, Balinese or Chinese furnishings in colonial or more contemporary style, is sometimes 150 years old. The materials (woven leather from the Philippines), the upholstery (Thai silk) and the precious woods have been carefully chosen. Aqua garden and stilt bungalows characterize the "Tirta-Ening" villa, the " Wanakasa" is constructed around a sacred tree, the "Tehasuara" is built up from cut stones brought directly from the Indonesian island of Sumba, the "Bayugita" combines Balinese architecture and Javanese colonial style, the "Umabona" is recommended for romantics because of its spectacular view of the Batu Karu mountain and the Ayung river.

    Each residence has its own pool, as well as a library (with a selection of CDs, DVDs and books) and a dining room. The villas are far enough apart to ensure privacy. They are all equipped with telephones (one in the bathroom), satellite television, air conditioning and fans, a large safe with an electronic lock for valuables, CD and DVD readers. The bathroom contains a bathtub and a shower, a hair dryer, bathrobes and stylish basket of products to welcome you. The toilets are separated. There is always one bottle of water in the room. Some suites such as "Master" and "Deluxe" ones have their own jacuzzi and a shower installed on the private sundeck.

    Overview 9.70 /10

    The Begawan hotel's five small buildings contain a number of suites and are situated in dense and mature vegetation covering 20 acres. This vegetation covers the hills sometimes carpeted by the intense green of the ricefields. The Ayung river runs through it. The deep and profound silence is only occasionally broken by the laughter of people rafting on the river.

    Two restaurants extend out from the reception area with very "zen" decors hiding the pavilions. Indeed, one door leads out ?nto the garden that reveals the park and the villas hidden behind the small hills only ten minutes away or 2 minutes by car (shuttle will be provided upon request).

    A butler is employed for each residence. He welcomes his customers, calling them by their name and offering a cup of ginger tea, a glass of water and a refreshing towel. Discreetly attentive, he is at your service.

    Food and drink 9.45 /10

    The two restaurants are very close to the reception area located at the entrance of the structure. The "Biji" offers international cuisine. The South African chef's choice of menu is "world cuisine", served in the uncluttered, contemporary open air restaurant which faces the river. The second restaurant, the " Kudus House" is situated in a splendid 150-year-old traditional Balinese house with wooden walls that are finely hand-worked. The national cuisine is served there. The vegetables are from the garden, the fish and the shrimps are from the river.

      Located in the heights of Bali in the area of Ubud, The Viceroy benefits from a superb location on the hillside of a valley. The view from the communal rooms and the villas is absolutely superb, just like the facilities. You will have to get use to the closeness of the accommodations and the severe lack of greenery though. A special mention goes to the food.
