“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is good value, clean, good distance to everything, although I would not stay here again purely for comfort reasons.. The bed is horrible, so hard. I am not a fussy traveller normally only staying in 3 or 4 star accomodation but they have falsely advertised on there website saying "soft mattress" have had 3 nights here two to go and not a decent nights sleep.. Such a shame!

This is the most beautiful hotel! Our stay here was amazing. The staff are so helpful and friendly. And the hotel is very clean and comfortable. We had the loveliest housekeeping staff. Especially ARIX, he was AWESOME!! He left us different animal towels on our bed every morning. We wrote a note to thank him and the next day he hid the animal towel elsewhere for us to find!!! We had lots of fun with him. He was so kind and funny. And of course cleaned and tidied our room wonderfully. The pool and gym are great. The rooftop bar is awesome. And breakfast was great too. We had a truly amazing stay here in Legian, so happy :)

Room Tip: We had a pool access room. It opened onto the pool. It was beautiful. And slept so well, it was real...

I cannot begin to explain how much my partner and I value 'The Akmani Legian'. We have stayed twice this year and both times been treated like special guests. We have never felt so welcome at a hotel resort the way we have at Akmani. From all the staff sincerity and friendliness to the quality of the hotel itself and it's great facilities, also not to mention the amazing buffet breakfast which was included daily which included a massive variety of foods and beverages... This is definitely a must stay hotel should you take a trip to Bali. You will not be disappointed by anything as every single member or staff is pleasant and offers respect to their guests.
We love Akmani <3 Jason & Demi Vaughan.

When booking this hotel I thought it looked nice... When we arrived at 10pm after a long flight we were welcomed by the friendliest staff I have ever had the pleasure to deal with, a nice cold cocktail and THE BEST AND COLDEST FACE TOWEL EVER.

Once we got to our room, which again was lovely and cool ( always a great relief after walking around Kuta and Legian for a while ) it is very clean and beautifully decorated.

My husband and I loved every minute of our stay, and will definitely return with our kids. I can't recommend this place enough.

Akmani, we will return.

Arrived friday night at 7ish and had an amazing welcome by all staff just what my girlfriend and I need after our flight. though the akmani is located on jl legian once your inside the hotel it is very quiet and relaxing. Staff went above and beyond for all our needs and would go out of thier way to help. Vertical point (rooftop pooland swim up bar) was amazing especially at sunset. The one minor thing that could be improved is a bigger range on the room service and restaurant menu. Thanks you to all of the staff for making our stay unforgettable.

It's a nice comfortable, homely-like and friendly hotel. It's strategically located in Legian so all the boutique stores are just in the main Legian strip. There are also shops as you walk 20 minutes to Kuta beach. There's beach beds with umbrella for rent (30,000) for 2 hours. You can learn surfing or just take a dip in the beach or lay down and rest. We also went to temples, water sports and hotels at the other side of the island where the sea water is calm and you can swim like we went to the Westin to for snacks and swim and loved it. The staff at Akmani are very friendly consistently. It's very safe. The rooms are okay. The pools are lovely and not too cold. Their driver Agus is very friendly and drove us to temples and malls and other places around Bali.

I love Bali. I will come back for sure.. I finally found a second option aside from Boracay which in my own personal opinion is better for various reasons. When I go back to Bali, I'd most probably want to stay at Akmani again.
