SPG INSTANT AWARDS

SPG Participation Policy

There are no standard rooms at this resort; therefore, Starpoint Award reservations must be booked at a higher Starpoint rate through your local customer contact center. Also, since all accommodations are either suites or villas, upgrades for Starwood Preferred Guest members do not apply.

Non-Smoking Policy

The resort is committed to providing guests and associates with an enhanced quality of air and environment by providing 100% non-smoking guest rooms, suites, and villas. Violations of this policy will incur a 250 USD penalty. Designated smoking areas are available in public areas.

Seclusion Day Information: March 9, 2016

Nyepi, known as the Day of Silence, marks the celebration of the Balinese New Year in the Hindu Lunar calendar. A spectacular procedure of ceremonies, parades of great bamboo monsters, and fireworks occur on the Eve of Nyepi, followed by a day of total silence and seclusion. The community strongly believes that if the island is silent and dark, the bad spirits will leave and the new year will start in peace. During Nyepi, from 6am until 6am the next day, the island stops. Nobody is allowed in the streets, use of electricity is restricted, and the international airport is closed.

In 2016, Nyepi will fall on Wednesday, March 9. Please note that check-in and checkout will not be possible on Nyepi Day, and Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) will be closed. Some of the resort facilities will operate as usual; however, there will be no transportation services to and from the resort, and televisions will not be available. Lights will be dimmed inside and there will be no outdoor lighting. Our pools and garden areas will still be accessible except for the beach. Only indoor seating will be available at Boneka Restaurant. Gourmand Deli will close at 8pm. King Cole Bar will remain closed.

We kindly invite you to respect this sacred day and observe these restrictions. Normal activity in Bali will resume at 6am on Thursday, March 10.

Just saw this thread. I stayed there from Oct 4-8, 2008 for $337.50/night (had SPG take 10% off expedia's rate, which took a lot more work than it was worth), also in a St. Regis Suite. Asked about the SPG Platinum upgrade... told me I'd already been upgraded to their preferred floor (no villa for me)... not sure how much nicer it was, but the room was great. I also asked about using points to upgrade, and whatever the number was, it was ridiculous... at $.02/point, it turned out to be way pricier than initially booking a villa.

Anyway, hope this helps and have fun... the place is awesome.

Likely to be 30 K+ considering they charge 30-35 K for a suite and ~70-75K points for a villa.

I was trying to book a villa on SPG 50 and was told it is not possible to book villas on SPG 50-and it is 120K per night for villas on points. At USD 1100 plus taxes for gardenia villa for the dates I was looking at, I decided to skip St Regis and booked Four Seasons which is 60% of St Regis with the pay for three nights- stay four nights offer.

Butler/Nanny room to be used privately ?

We are planning to stay in a Gardenia Villa next August.

Does anybody know if the so-called Butler/Nanny room can be used to accomodate a child (5Y old)?

Otherwise, is there "enough room" to place a rollaway bed in the villa?

Thank you

You can easily place a roll away bed in the living room or use butler's room.

guess the villa points price varies a lot by time! They wanted ~70-75 K/night in late June, so I decided to pay $650/night instead.

I see rates of $338 on SPG and $337.50 at speedy, so I guess this is still a BRG win if you want to go thru the hoops. I would hope there are some more competitive offers given the economic downturn, but I enjoyed my stay here enough to justify a low $300 rate.

I just got a mail from St Regis Bali telling me that it is forbidden to use the butler room for a child.

Anybody having experience with this ?

That's pretty funny if you can get them to knock off 10% over a 50 cent difference, but it'd be a great deal. I stayed right after it opened, and the best SPG rate was $550 vs. $375 on speedy, so they were predictably not excited about honoring the BRG. It came down to the mention of a fruit basket under the room description on speedy vs. no mention on SPG. Apparently, even extra amenities on the competing site invalidate their guarantee... but an email to the concierge confirmed

"In regards to your inquiry for the amenities in your previous email, we are delighted to inform you that Tropical fruit selection based on guest preference is a standard benefit.

We look forward to welcoming you to the warmth of The St. Regis Bali Resort."

Had to forward this back to SPG to get them to match

I'd personally book it through SPG and then do a BRG through Expedia. You can always cancel and book at the Four Seasons if they don't honor the BRG.

I am planning to be in Bali for the first time in late May, would you recommend the St Regis as the SPG choice. I can use points for Laguna or Westin or pay for the St Regis. Any thoughts?

I am PLAT.

st regis bali - wifi charge?

all - debating whether to upgrade my iPhone to an international data plan, for this Summer's stay in Bali. Anybody know from recent experience what the st regis charges for wifi access in the rooms? I can always email the hotel, just thought somebody might have recent experience.
