Viceroy Bali – Best Tropical Hideaway in Asia Pacific

Out & About with the Rainbow Rambler

Rainbow Tourism RecommendedIt’s been a while since I have wanted to score a hotel a perfect 10.  Surprise, surprise, I found one in the highlands of Ubud in central Bali,  and have given it  “RTR” status.

An impeccable 5 star service (including Beglian chocolate turn-down service) complemented our bliss for two.  The boys next door appreciated the fine entertainment unit and we enjoyed listening to their disco music, too.
