The story of Viceroy Bali
The Syrowatka’s have set out to achieve a truly worldclass hotel, completely independent from chains which is becoming a rarity in Bali. Margaret who opened the hotel in 2005, built it from the ground up on a beautiful piece of land in the emerging Ubud. Amanda (Margaret’s daughter) is the General Manager and takes on the mantle of constantly evolving the hotel, consistently regarded as one of the best in Bali.
The family cherrypicked their favourite parts of all of their travels across the world and you’ll find a wonderful balance at the resort, one minute you could be chatting to guests at social hour for free cocktails and canapés, then next enjoying a private romantic dinner in the comfort of your villa. You could kick back and enjoy a local favourite Nasi Goreng in CasCades, then the next night be dressing up to the nines ready for you fine dining degustation experience at Apéritif – often voted the best restaurant in Indonesia.

Indulge in the Extraordinary
It's your well-deserved holiday, and at Viceroy Bali, we believe in going the extra mile to make it truly special. Picture yourself toasting to an anniversary or a loved one in your own private pool with a glass of champagne, or learning the art of cocktails from Panji, our Head Mixologist, during his exclusive masterclass at Apéritif Bar. You could take a tour of our exquisite wine cellar while savoring a delectable degustation dinner at our fine dining Apéritif Restaurant. The list goes on and on, but above all, we know that sometimes you simply need a little pampering and indulgence.
The Magic of Ubud and beyond
Ubud has captivated us, and we know it will captivate you too. It's a place that reveals its wonders slowly, and we encourage you to slow down, stay longer, and immerse yourself in its beauty. With its central location in the heart of Bali, Ubud is the perfect gateway to explore the rich culture, stunning landscapes, and hidden treasures of the island. From vibrant markets to serene rice terraces, there's always something to discover and cherish in Ubud. The number of guests who say “we wish we had longer” will always stay with us. We genuinely believe the magic of Bali is seen through Ubud as jumping off point. Trust us.
At Viceroy Bali, we believe that genuine connections are the essence of every unforgettable stay. Our staff are not just employees, but friends who are passionate about sharing their stories and culture with you. Whether it's relaxing by the pool and hearing about Adhi's life, joining in a Balinese dance, or taking a walk with Made through the rice terraces and gaining insights into a different way of life, our mini community is what makes Viceroy Bali truly special. Many of our guests return year after year to reconnect with familiar faces and create lasting friendships.

You deserve to unwind and let your worries melt away. At Viceroy Bali, we provide the perfect sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation. Imagine indulging in leisurely breakfasts with a breathtaking backdrop, sipping cocktails by the pool, and connecting with other guests during our social hour.

Our honeymoon was marked with a congratulatory chocolate cake and a beautiful arrangement of red roses. The hotel is family run, and the staff all seem devoted to the owners.
Breakfast could be taken from the huge buffet or from the a la crate menu, which meant there were something delicious for everyone. The buggies which you can request to take you to and from your villas are there within minutes, and there is a shuttle bus into Ubud if you can bear to drag yourself away from this tranquil paradise.
