Me at the Viceroy, Bali

Heaven forbid you only had one night in Ubud, but if you did, then the Viceroy Bali is THE place. No need to negotiate the traffic, simply send for a helicopter to collect you from the airport and deliver you directly to your private villa suspended over the Valley of Kings.

Bali’s architectural grandeur goes without saying but it’s the small things which set the Viceroy apart. My bale perched over a heated infinity pool includes power points and by the pool are towel rails and a games table engraved with a chess board. The mini bar is stocked with Veuve Clicquot and if there was ever a time to splurge it would be while soaking in the oversized bath at the centre of the opulent bathroom. Crank up the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin speakers and emerge through the bathroom’s filmy curtains all Zoolander-like as you head out to CasCades Restaurant.

Dinner is quite an event and features a local and international line-up including Japanese scallops, Jimbaran king prawn, seabass, foie gras, Australian Australian Black Angus, New Zealand lamb and the Iberico Pork as you’re waited on by staff in traditional uniforms and gracious Balinese charm. There’s a buggy on standby to help you back to your villa, which I must say is especially handy after a deplorable display of decadence at the Lembah Spa. They’re really is quite justified in repeating the hotel’s motto, “Viceroy is a sanctuary in paradise.” www.viceroybali.com
