Last month, the Viceroy Bali unveiled 14 new villas to join the resort’s existing 11, all overlooking central Bali’s Valley of the Kings. We hear the new villas come with a private pool, a living room with sectional sofa, king-sized bed, 47-inch TV, iPod docking station and balé, or a small pavilion, overlooking the pool. Note: Families in tow? Two of these deluxe terrace villas can be connected to form one large one.
Nice Touch: To ensure that the new batch of villas is as regal as the original, the resort has appointed a dedicated guest service manager, Jonathan Sweeney-Lowe. Whether guests are looking for a visit via on-call shuttle to the heart of artsy Ubud or via helicopter to Bali’s natural sites, a treatment at the Lembah Spa or reservations at Cascades restaurant, Sweeney-Lowe is on hand to carry out every detail.
Looking for a side trip? Ubud is Bali’s center for arts, culture, yoga and nature. We hear one of the highlights of this central city is the Ubud Monkey Forest, which houses a temple and approximately 340 macaque monkeys. A trip to the home of Tjokorda Gede Agung Sukawati, the last “king” of Ubud is also a must. His home now stages dance performances in its courtyard and is one the oldest hotels on the island.
Want more news? We hear that a tennis facility and new yoga pavilion are coming soon.
