So this is my first travel article about the Viceroy in Bali, Ubud. Some more will follow soon 🙂
Ubud is the culural center of Bali, very alternative and colorful with a lot of temples in the middle of green ricefields. I can definitely recommend to go there for a week and then hit to the coast, for example to Seminyak (kind of Beverly Hills in Bali).
I´ve always seen beautiful pictures of the Viceroy and always wanted to go there. It was even more beautiful than on the pictures, we had a Deluxe Terrace Villa with our own heated pool and an outstanding bathroom. On the Terrace you have a spectacular view to the jungle and you can even see some monkeys 🙂 Close to the reception, there is a helicopter pad and you can go on a 45 minutes trip above Ubud. I would have loved to do that, but this was a little too expensive for us. The highlight of the Viceroy is the large infinity edge pool, it´s so exciting to go swimming there and do some pictures.
At any time you can use a free shuttle to go to the Ubud City Center, which is only around 5-10 minutes driving time. It was really a luxury ambience, the food is very delicious and very well prepared. The CEO of the hotel is from Austria, it was very nice to speak some German with him. Nearly every day he came by and asked if everything is fine, which was very courteous.

This is one of the best hotels I´ve ever been to and again, I can highly recommend it!
