“Wonderful break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

We recently took a short break in Bali and were delighted with all aspects of our stay at The Legian Bali (be careful when booking as there are other hotels in the area with similar names catering to a different market).
All the staff we encountered were most attentive and extremely pleasant. We had a late flight out of Bali and the management was most helpful in letting us use our room after normal check out time so we could make the most of our last day.The pool and beach areas were great as was the overall standard of the hotel's décor. Make sure you catch the sunset! We will return.

Room Tip: All rooms face the beach. We preferred the top floor.

I've not stayed at the Legian, but I went back there this year after 17 years to find that the restaurant is as wonderful as I remember it when the hotel had newly opened in 1997. The food is delicious, try the fois gras entrée, and the service is caring and personal. I had such a great time I went back again a second night! The staff seem to really love their jobs and remember to call guests by name. The atmosphere is peaceful, romantic and very "grown-up". The sound of the waves breaking slowly on the shore accompanied by the classical pianist at the grand piano is so relaxing, and the view of the pool is beautiful, lit by candles and flaming torches.

The Balinese duck is a tasty specialty, the steaks are cooked to perfection and the deserts are to die for. Your waiter will be able to recommend a good wine.

When the staff asked why I wasn't staying with them, I explained that I had already booked my stays at other hotels, (after all the Legian is quite expensive), but I plan to stay with them next time if I am in Seminyak.

...in retrospective it is one of the best hotels we have stayed in so far, in fact the best one, considering location, the weather and the whole package which comes with it. We were on a business trip to Singapore, Jakarta and Surabaya coming all the way from London October last year and it was really shame to miss the opportunity to not visit Bali when it is only an hour flight from Surabaya.
So so glad we did it!
On arrival we were very nicely greeted. Those cool aromatic towels and an air conditioned car and all those little details which makes you forget a several hours delayed flight and all other inconveniences...
and then you have that WOW factor when you arrive at the hotel at night and the area of the hotel - all candlelit and perfectly clean and very very cosy. It DOES feel cosy and homie despite the fact it is quite a big hotel.
Oh, i could go on and on about how very nice the hotel was.
The major contributing factors however were:
Huge room with a lovely day bed on the balcony overseeing the ocean
another patio with two sunbeds.
enormous bathroom with two sinks, a shower and a bath, full of aromatic candles and toiletries.
The food. This was something very special. Reading a menu is like reading a book. All very well thought through. (They have that sea food day which is a must)
The most important thing to me is the stuff who know if and when you would like their help and they make sure they are not overpowering but at the same time they are there for you if you need them. This is to me it's a top-notch.
Would definitely like to come there again and I have already recommended the hotel to some of my friends.

I recently stayed at the Legian Bali along with my three teenage daughters. I must say that it is probably the best hotel we have ever stayed at. The most impressive feature is the staff. They were so friendly, they all knew us by name and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. Their level of service was next to none! The hotel itself is beautiful - from the rooms to the pool and grounds, it is kept in impeccable condition. I cannot think of a single thing that I would change. I will definitely be back, and I can't wait!!!

Perfection is the word that sums up our experience at The Legian. Perfect location, perfect setup, perfect room, perfect pool, perfect food, perfect service, perfect perks, perfect breakfast, perfect everything.

We stayed in the two-bedroom suite and it was HUGE (bigger than my 2 bedroom apartment!). An iPod dock with two pre-loaded iPods, Bose speakers in every room, a sampler of fresh new cookies every day, fresh fruit...everything in our room showed us that this is a place where the staff really care....down to the little poems left on the bed every evening, that brought a smile to our faces every time we read them. We felt so at home, we did not want to leave.

The service was flawless. The staff knew all our names and addressed us personally everywhere we went: at breakfast, which was YUMM (the waffles were to die for!) at the pool deck, where the staff kept a close eye on guests to make sure our towels were always perfectly placed on the sun beds and our cups of water were always replenished, at the spa where the balinese massage was spectacular, etc.

The management of this hotel clearly knows a thing or two about running a tight ship. The GM was often seen walking around the hotel and the pool area talking to guests. He even made it a point to greet us when we checked in at 10PM!! Not to forget the cocktails evening that was organised by the hotel's management to allow them to meet and mingle with the guests (and to allow the guests to meet each other). The marketing and sales director spent around 20 minutes talking to us - we caught up on Dubai stories!

While the hotel is an excellent honeymoon location, it's also great for families or a group of 4 girls (like us) looking for relaxation and pampering...

Highly highly HIGHLY recommended!

Room Tip: The two bedroom suite (room 214) is excellent for a family or a group of friends.

Recently we were enjoying a few day vacation at this hotel after a cruise from Sydney and my wife developed a very bad coughing attack. I contacted reception to find a local doctor and they advised that they employed a registered nurse who was sent to our room immediatelly.
She dispensed medication and stayed in close contact with us until we left to return to Australia.
The general manager and other staff were also most attentive and provided wonderful support.
It sure pays to stay in good hotels .

Room Tip: We enjoyed a beech front room overlooking the pool.Great spot.

Dear ThehappyTwosome,

It was truly a pleasure to welcome you both back to The Legian Bali and thank you for writing a review on your most recent stay. It is unfortunate that your wife was not able to enjoy her stay. However, we are very grateful that our onsite medical team was able to assist her immediately and happy to see that she was feeling better upon departure.

We look forward to welcoming you both back to The Legian Bali very soon.

Spent 6 nights in The Legian for our honeymoon. It was amazing - the room, the grounds,staff, food, yoga - especially the breakfast. We couldn't fault one thing about it and we are already dreaming of returning sometime soon!

Nothing really to add that I didn't read in other reviews except that its also a great location in seminyak - very quick and close walk to Ku De Ta, Potato head.
