2 Free Nights With Transfers and Meals in Bali Worth $2500

Bali is one of my favorite relaxing places in the world. I go to the Maldives often, but it can be tough to get to and tough to get awards to. When folks come to me looking for French Polynesia and can’t find awards I’ll often suggest Bali.

It’s an interesting place with good food, cultural activities, and some of the world’s friendliest people. And there’s fantastic luxury accommodations available at reasonable prices for those spending US dollars.

Viceroy Bali is a family-owned resort with just 25 private pool villas. It’s in the artistic region of Ubud, so a nice departure from the more sterile Nusa Dua area of Westernized resorts. It’s a TripAdvisor 5-star and 2016 Travelers Choice award winner. I’ve seen very few properties with reviews this good. In fact, It’s TripAdvisor’s #11 of top 25 luxury hotels in the world.

Thanks to Luxury Travel Diary I ran a contest to give away 2 nights at the property to a lucky reader.

Luxury Travel Diary is a high-end travel blog with great reviews based in the UK that has a bunch of travel auctions with real bargains.

I suppose that folks who already know about these auctions don’t like this added attention, because frankly there aren’t enough bidders relative to the value of the offerings and some of these items go too cheap.

Here are their auctions. And here are the ones ending soon which are probably the best to check out right now – to get an idea of just how good a deal you’re likely to get.

Luxury Travel Diary wanted to highlight some of their deals, and offered to help organize a giveaway of a 2 night hotel stay at the Viceroy in Bali.

What’s included?

  • 2 night stay in a Garden Villa for 2 people
  • Roundtrip airport transfers
  • Daily breakfast
  • One candlelit dinner for 2
  • One couples spa treatment for 2

The hotel lists the value at $2500. It’s being given away by the hotel and Luxury Travel Diary, I just helped to highlight it and randomly select the winner.

So here’s the deal. I drew a winner at random with the help of Random.org:

The winner is reader Bob, who said,

I’d pick the 2 night stay at the Viceroy. The area around the Viceroy is among one of my all-time favorite place to visit.

  1. Thank you Gary and Luxury Travel Diary.

    The last time we visited Ubud, we stayed at a different resort just one valley over to the West. We will definitely enjoy this one. We have a trip planned to Indonesia this coming May before the sweepstake even started. Looks like a perfect opportunity to extend our trips by a few days!
