“Excellent break at the Legian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Super hotel and super location. we'd stayed at the chedi previously and after a few days in Thailand with storms on the horizon we shipped ourselves across to Bali and had a fabulous time.
The location of the hotel is superb, and I'd recommend renting on the nice little vespas the hotel has and exploring the area. we went as far out as canguu (to the Deus shop there) but it was great having it to nip around. I'd also recommend a stroll down the beach (heading left as you come out of the hotel onto the beach) down to 'la plancha' for sunset. Great spot.
The hotel has everything you'd expect of a top bali stop but the pools, and slightly raised setting kind of set it apart. Loved the short massages by the pool which were excellent, and the service is excellent as you'd expect. Only fair to say that we found the hotel to be pretty reasonably priced. Especially versus the equivalent hotels we were staying at in Thailand.
I'd definitely recommend as somewhere to stay in Bali. Close enough to everything you need for surfing and sports, but also in a nice boutique shopping area and some super restaurants. Enjoy.

Room Tip: all rooms face the sea. heading for the wings of the hotel is probably a little quieter

Upon arriving at the Legian from a wonderful stay at its sister hotel The Chedi we were hoping that our stay here would be just as delightful. We were warmly welcomed and personally greeted by the very friendly Gm Kevin. This was a great start to our 9 night stay at this lovely hotel. We were allocated a room on the ground floor which was a perfect location as it was located very near the pool bar and a lovely quiet corner facing the beach. It was the perfect location for my kids who are aged15 and 10 yr old twins. They could go back to the room and as we could see the room from our loungers & did not have to worry about them going back and forth. Now onto the rooms. Lovely spacious rooms and plenty of space for a family of five to relax in. Housekeeping really kept the rooms immaculate and they were sprayed in the evening to keep those pesky mosquitos at bay. I would definitely recommend a good mosquito repellent if you are one of those unfortunate people who, like me get eaten alive by them. Like the Chedi you also have complimentary afternoon tea here which you can have by the pool or in your room. I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the food at The Legian particularly as we had just experienced the beautiful food at The Chedi. The breakfast was hit and miss with poached eggs( I was asked if I liked them done soft, medium of hard by one of the staff. That's a first!!) being poorly cooked and then things being missed from our order quite a few times. I must say the service in the restaurant was very hit and miss as well. I also found room service food to be inconsistent not only portion size but quality as well.
Now onto the pool area. Lovely and clean and the pool staff wonderful. I would recommend you try the fresh juices (found on the main menu not the small poolside one). As a family who loves juicing we had some delicious fresh juices, try the Bloat Buster a delicious green juice which all the family loved. The hotel is also located in perfect position for all the shops and very near the best spa experience I had in Bali ( The Bodyworks Spa).
I have to say a lovely experience at the Legian but was spoilt at the end of the trip. Upon arriving at the airport for our departure I noticed one of our bags was missing. This has to be the first time this has happened and was made worse by the way the hotel dealt with this. After numerous phone calls ( mobile phone bill was ridiculous) our bag was finally found, which, considering the storage room was not very big I couldn't understand why it took so long to find. This was something I had not expected or ever experienced with a five star hotel and stressed us all out at the end of what was a relaxing holiday. Overall the experience at the Legian was good but not as good as its sister hotel The Chedi.

Room Tip: Ground floor room facing the pool bar are ideally located. The morning yoga takes place a few steps...

We stayed in the club part of the hotel, which is the other side of the street from the main hotel. It is an oasis of calm in the midst of the shops, bars and restaurants of Seminyak, of which there are a lot. You get the best of all worlds: near the shops, use of the hotel facilities and direct access to the beach and then return to your private villa for relaxation The club also has a great swimming pool and its own restauarant. The service, with a personal Butler, is very attentive and discreet. We look forward to returning sometime.

We did quite a bit of research as to where we wanted to stay for our friend's 50th birthday celebration. As The Legian was number one on Tripadvisor, we decided to book it. The reviews were so good however, we were slightly worried the reality wouldn't live up to all those good reviews. We needn't have worried! The Legian is not what I would call a "flashy" hotel. It doesn't have a massive lobby with shiny marble and chrome. Instead, it is conservative and discrete and very luxurious. On check in, you are not required to line up at the check in desk with all the other guests, but are escorted to your own lounge where all the paperwork is brought to you (along with a deliciously cold drink and towel). Everything is very professional, yet also warm and friendly The pool area is the best of the hotels along Seminyak beach (we checked them all out including The W, The Oberoi and The Seminyak). All the rooms have amazing views. The rooms are not brand new, nor do they have the "wow" factor of newer hotels (except for the view!). But they are very well appointed with a fantastic shower, very comfortable bed and pillows and quality sheets. They are also extremely clean and have everything you will need. was very happy with our 1 bedroom suite on the 3rd floor. The best thing about The Legian, however, is the amazing service from all the staff and the many little things they do to make your holiday trouble free. There are too many examples during our 3 night stay of fantastic service to write in this review. Nothing was too much trouble and most things were anticipated before we even realised we needed them! Hopefully, we will be back soon.

We stayed at the Legian for 6 nights as a family of three (Myself, wife and 17 month baby). When we checked in we was warmly greeted by Kevin the GM. After the checking in formalities we was introduced to our butler (Chandra) and our 1 bed villa with pool.

I can only say the villa was amazing - we spent loads of time in there and the pool. It was very spacious and was ideal for our little family. We ate at the Legian several times - from breakfast in the main hotel, to in villa dining. Our butler Chandra was very helpful in making things happen for us and ensuring our stay was perfect. We did have some very small hiccups such as the villa back door not closing properly, and the DVD player not working but these were small issues that were addressed immiediately. One thing that really impressed me was when our little boy seemed to have some sort of skin allergy. We was quite concerned because in the past the doctors back home recommended that we used a non-bio detergent for our laundry as it doesn't contain any enzymes and was better for babies with sensitive skin (which our little boy has). We know that most hotels try their best to keep their linens white and clean so thought maybe it could be the detergent used. When the hotel helped call a doctor some skin lotion was prescribed and this sorted out our little boy. But Chandra was prepared to look at changing our duvet and bed sheet and possiably using a different detergent if the lotion didn't work. This to me is a sign that the Legian will go that extra length to look after their guest. I'm sure most hotels wouldn't have responded like this. The staff at the Legian really do make this place special - everyone from Kevin the GM, to Chandra, the waiters, porters / bell boys are brilliant.

The property itself really well maintained and the location is good. The view of the sea is perfect. Everything for us was perfect - from the airport pick up to the laundry service. The laundry service was excellent as it meant we could just enjoy our family time together even when we got home without having to wash everything - just how a holiday should be. The villa wasn't cheap, but when we look at the personalised service and compliementary stuff thrown in - it was actually value for money. I'd definately stay here again on my return.

Room Tip: Go for a villa.
