“Amazing experience- 5 star resort with 5 star service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

WOW where do we start? Just home from a 7 day trip to bali staying at The Legian. Absolutely amazing resort. The view, the pool, the spa, the room, the breakfast, but most of all the service!

We were in bali celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary (no kids!!) and wanted to stay somewhere special with no Marco Pollo at the pool!! After reading so, so many wonderful reviews on Trip advisor we could not stay anywhere else but The Legian. We have stayed in many 5 star properties around the world but never experienced such 5 star service. Every staff member greets you with name every time you see them. By the pool they layed your towels and then re positioned them, refilled your icy water, fabric refresher towels, complimentary green tea facial mist and foot massage. They move your umbrella up, down, side wards...they will do it all and with a REAL smile. Nothing is too big or too small.

The room itself we stayed in a spacious enough for the two of us with 2 large balconies one with sun lounges. Real extras was the daily turn down service, iPod and Bose sound system, gorgeous pool bag to use, international power plugs, coffee machine and free mini bar of all soft drinks/ juices/ water and nibbles.

Afternoon tea was another added bonus between 4 - 6pm where the coffee is delicious. The breakfast was a breath of fresh air compared to other resorts that have those terrible buffets, here you get to order from an al a carte menu and are cooked to your liking. Plus there is a selection of pastries, cereals, salads, sushi and other international cuisine available. The gardens are perfect and picturesque and there was not a person who walked along the beach that did not stop and admire this beautiful property.

Kevin the managing director was lovely he came and introduced himself early in our stay and we had a great chat with him about his wonderful resort his plans for it and we can't wait to visit again to see the next stage of his grand plans. We can see why the service is exceptional as it starts from the top. Can't recommend highly enough.

We stayed at The Legian for six nights in November and must say it was the most amazing experience. First, the staff is wonderful. So helpful, kind and generous with their time and information. We loved working with all of them. The room they gave us, which was more than we expected, was their two bedroom suite overlooking the ocean and pool. Okay so spectacular was the word. Immaculate, fruit every day, little notes and flowers on our pillow at night. What more can you ask for. Oh, how about the amazing buffet breakfast in the morning overlooking the ocean. The fabulous dinners at night. Maybe the location in walking distance to everywhere. We checked out other hotels near The Legian and let me say that nothing compared. We will be going back to Bali and this will be our hotel of choice. Thank you to everyone at The Legian in Seminyak (not to be confused with the Legian Beach hotel). Our vacation was more that perfect.

Room Tip: This hotel won't disappoint no matter what room you stay in.

We stayed two nights at the Legian in November and while the weather didn't do us any favors with lots of rain, the staff certainly did. We stayed in a deluxe suite and it was spectacular with plenty of space, a large balcony, great amenities and a beautiful view over the pool and beach. Staff knew our names from the moment we checked in, no request was too large and they even arranged a late checkout for us given a night flight we had. On that point - while requests for a late checkout are common at hotels around the world, the staff at the Legian didn't make a big deal about it and we weren't left feeling like we had asked for the world as is often is the case elsewhere. When we struggled to get taxi for a dinner booking, one of the staff took us with no fuss. It was a real delight to feel so special, especially since we booked through Expedia. Great location with Kudeta and Eat Street (Jalan Laksmana) very close by and Potato Head a short walk away. Breakfast by the pool was a delight.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe suite - amazing amounts of space for just a little extra.

Okay, review number 26 and God-knows how many hotels.

To get straight to it, the majority of the reviews for this hotel reflect mine - The Legian, in a word, is 'superb.

Starting with service - the trump card at this place - we chose the VIP Visa service (honestly, time over I wouldn't bother but it was still nice). We were met within 200 yards of the plane and never looked back - walked through immigration, luggage collected and walked to the waiting car, chilled water and cold towels in the car and greeted by name when the hotel staff opened the car doors upon our arrival.

In honesty, I could stop now - the arrival experience reflects the majority of the stay - but to make sure I help as much as possible a few other things I hope will help you make your decisions;

We went here as we like smaller hotels. The place is quite large, but only seventy or so rooms. Service is by personal.

Our room was massive - the bathroom alone bigger than my bedroom!

Hotel facilities are great. Three beautifully located pools. There was a slime build up on one corner which made I slippery. The point is, before we'd even mentioned it to staff, it was treated and quietly cleaned up. Things like this happen - its the way staff respond that matters. I tried the gym, it was literally brand new, well spec'd.

Food - excellent. Breakfast was extensive and great. Room service very fast and quality good. Afternoon sorbets and afternoon tea around the pool both complimentary and both delicious. Dinner, same deal. Understandably more expensive than eating out, but just as good.

Location, the only downside - and strictly on a personal taste basis. In terms of location in Seminyak, The Legian is great. Infinity pools overlook the beach perfectly and it's pretty much in the middle of the town. The problem is Seminyak. Good grief the Government need to clean it up - beaches are simply dirty (despite the hotel cleaning it's area daily by the looks of it) and while there are great bars and restaurants, the town is full of lovely people. But it's a mess.

Don't get me wrong, we loved this place and enjoyed Seminyak, but if you're looking for great beaches and golden sand, it's not for you.

If you are looking for an amazing hotel with incredible staff and aren't took bothered about a pristine, golden beach, highly highly recommended. If we go back to Seminyak, I won't even blink booking The Legian again.

The best hotel we've ever stayed at? We have been lucky to stay at some amazing places and we love many for a variety of reasons. What I can say, is service and quality wise, The Legian is in a world of its own.

All I can close with is a thanks to incredible staff.

Room Tip: Stay on the top (3rd) floor if you're an ocean view junkie. All very good, regardless.

Dear Travelling-Welsh-Boy,

On behalf of the entire team at The Legian Bali, I would like to sincerely thank you for writing a meticulous review on your stay with us and sharing it with others.

I am very happy to learn that you had a wonderful arrival experience starting with an expedited immigration process all the way to the awaiting chauffeur greeting you by name and left you feeling recognized from the very first interaction.
It is nice to hear that you found the service of our staff as well as their attention to details to be of a very high standard and were able to enjoy the large suite, facilities especially the three tiered infinity pools overlooking the beach and our gym.
I am pleased to read that the quality of food served in The Restaurant, afternoon tea as well as refreshments served during the day were appreciated and savored.

Taking the current infrastructural advancements into consideration, in the months to come we are confident that further progress in the cleanliness of all areas will be made.

We all at The Legian Bali look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Kindest regards,


Kevin J. Abramowicz

An utterly amazing experience that was flawless in every respect, the care and details are what really blew my mind, the buffet breakfast including the best salmon i have ever tasted, the iced water that arrives with a smile while you sit by the pool and the little treats waiting for you everyday in your room. At night, there was even a poem left on my pillow. Highly recommend this breathtaking hotel. I will dream about returning to the warm, soft thee tiered pool forever.

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool is the bomb
