I recently enjoyed a 5 night stay at this new property. This is a sleek and modern resort with nautical architectural referencing (Rooftop sails and snazzy fish net light fixtures). We arrived to be told that we had been upgraded to a Lagoon View Room which was a lovely gesture.
The split levelled rooms are incredibly spacious, bright and airy in crisp shades of white and grey accented with turquoise. Bathrooms are also large, featuring a bathtub and separate glassed in rain shower and toilet. There is also a walk in wardrobe which is large enough to house your luggage.
The focal point of the hotel is its beautiful salt water lagoon swimming pool which meanders through the property. They also have great piped music.
There is a criticism however and this has been raised in previous reviews. The hotel sits directly opposite the Jimbaran Seafood BBQ restaurants. Come late afternoon they begin preparation for the evening and if the wind blows inwards you begin to smell the smoke. One night we decided to have dinner at the hotel's restaurant Bamboo Chic which despite being glassed in was soon over taken by smoke, feeding one assumes through the air conditioning. The room became misty, your skin and eyes irritated and it permeated your clothing which required washing to remove the odour.
Likewise the open air Sky Bar perched above the restaurant can also fall victim to smoke. Luckily the night we visited it was not bad.
This really is a serious issue and I am not sure if it can be over come. There is certainly no point opening the restaurant of an evening if this is a regular occurrence.
On a positive note I must make mention of the amazing staff who have been well trained. They are efficient and friendly without being over bearing.
Over all a lovely stay, I would consider staying at Le Meridien again but hope that somehow the smoke situation can be looked at.
