The large luxury hotels often cut you off from nature in the name of luxury as if the elements of mature might come in the way of your comfort. But when you see The Viceroy in Ubud, Bali, an all villa resort, you realize that true luxury is in harmony with nature. The way the luxury hotel designer has created the luxurious place in the midst of nature, incorporating the best elements of nature in the architecture, is remarkable. There is an abundance of water. You see a pool almost everywhere be it indoors or outdoors. Many of the villas come with their own private pools, sometimes flowing indoors or outdoors. The location of the Viceroy is adjacent to the mountains and the layout and the design of the resort has been done in such a way that from practically every villa you are privy to majestic mountain views. With its lush green natural surroundings the Viceroy is truly a surreal place. It is easily one of the most serenely beautiful vacation spots, not just in Bali or Indonesia but in the world.
The good news from Ubud, Bali is that the Viceroy is undergoing further development and expansion. The development which has just been completed has almost doubled the accommodation available at the luxury resort. The prestigious Viceroy Bali has announced the completion of a group of exotic villas. The highland property is still developing some amenities for the guests like a tennis facility and valley-side yoga pavilion which should be ready for use by the guests by November this year. Bali, as it is, is one of truly exotic destination of the world and the Viceroy is perhaps the most exotic resort there. The Viceroy Bali is an ultra-luxury all-villa resort majestically situated on a secluded ridge of the Petanu River gorge along Bali’s “Valley of the Kings.” The name was given because of its proximity of the location to where the generations of Balinese royalty have resided in nearby villages. Architecturally, the new villas have clean lines and a vibrant design that is simple and elegant.
Each of the villas is spacious with living room with luxurious furnishings, 47-inch TV, iPod docking station and of course each with a private pool and outdoor sheltered pavilion. The bathroom with a luxurious tub with floating flower petals is truly romantic for couples. General Manager Anthony Syrowarka is excited about the upcoming facilities for tennis and yoga. The deluxe terrace suite offers couples romantic and private relaxation areas. Even their competitors agree that the architecture and design of the exotic Viceroy is harmonious with nature and full of warm light, with beautiful views and a soothing atmosphere overall. The bedrooms with king size beds offers a sensuous ambiance with its marble floors and sumptuous, dark red curtains. To upgrade the service to the level of the infrastructure the resort which is a member of Small Luxury Hotels has newly appointed Guest Service Manager, Jonathan Sweeney-Lowe. In Bali the relatively smaller establishments don’t normally have a concierge or guest service manager. But at the Viceroy, the bar has been raised quite high. The resort now has an on-site helipad and one of the top dining venues on the island. It is attracting the kind of guests who expect nothing but the best.
