“Wonderful hotel!!! beach so so...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Stayed there for 3 nights, on the one bedroom deluxe suite. The hotel is terrific! We were wellcomed by the staff when we left the car, check in very easy and ready for us on arrival, all explanations about the hotel and room amenities were fine. Room is REALLY nice - large, well decorated, comfortable, nice decor, perfect air conditioning (temperature outside was 33 dec celsius), beautiful view of the ocean.
Staff is fantastic. They all call you by your last name. Always ready to help, either on the swimming pool or at the restaurant. They prepared a nice tour for us, and I could rent a motorbike from the hotel - what I really recommend!
Very good breakfast, good drinks at the bar. Fruits and soft drinks complementary everyday in the room.
Semyniak beach, on the other hand, is not so nice for those used to white sandy beach. I was told by locals that here is the place to stay, but... I have been to nicer beaches in many countries.
For shopping and restaurants, that´s really good. Some nice streets on walking distance (or using the hotel´s shuttle or the motorbkie) make our stay even better - nice spot in Bali.
Overall, we are very happy here and recommend The Legian!

My Wife and i stayed at the legian club in a private pool villa which included butler service complementary internet and car drop off to surrounding areas which we both thought was good value. The room was large and well appointed and the location of the hotel is great because it is nearby all the good restaurants and bars. The staff we very friendly pitty about the general manager who we walked past several times and we were never acknowledge by her this would never happen at the four seasons. All in all a great hotel.

My husband and I stayed here as a splurge the last two nights of our honeymoon. We were upgraded to a deluxe suite that's bigger than our condo at home! We've been treated like royalty here the entire time. The service is impeccable and anticipates everything you could want or need. If you can afford to stay here, by all means, do so. Of course the food and drinks are very expensive here, but there are less pricey options in seminyak.

We stayed at the Legian for the second time and were welcomed back like old friends. We were upgraded and had beautiful suites opening on to the lawns. The restaurant, pool and facilities are fantastic. We think the rooms are a little dark but if you want restful, peaceful surroundings this is the place. Staff excellent and food terrific. Close to Seminyak for shopping but quiet and serene behind the facade.

We stayed our last 3 nights of our trip at The Legian as a special present for my girlfriend.

Both of us loved the place, very relaxing and quiet. Service was also excellent, anything you wanted or needed was only too easy for the staff to accommodate.

If you do stay make sure to have dinner in the restaurant at sunset and order the chefs tasting platter, expensive by Bali standards but worth every cent and more. I went back the next night to have it again!

Room Tip: Ask for a top level room for the best views!

The only hassle about this fabulous hotel is mking sure you have the right place when makie the booking, as there are many hotels nearby with the name "legian" in them.

-The Legian is a member of The Leading Small Hotels of the World so that indicates the level of service to expect and that you will receive - also the price you will pay - but is worth it and try negotiating and booking through the hotel itself.

-the hotel is in all respects in immaculate condition - it is really impossible to tell when it was built [I suspect this century]- because everything, including the grounds- have been very well maintained

-The Legian is an all suite hotel and the suites are a design sensation that could have stepped out of Architectural Digest. Stayed in a one bedroom suite [see photos]. Entrance is by carved double wooden doors into a wide foyer that leads to a central dining room table. To one side of it is a large lounge room with writing table, after which there is also an ample balcony with double daybed facing the ocean. To the other side is a large curtained four poster bed, to the side of which is a substantial bathroom area with shower, bath and double vanity[ with two mirrors that innovatively are on either side of the long vanity table]. The suite also looks fantastic in the evening because of its lighting design.

-the suite floors are parquetry and the ceilings high. Indeed, the feel is of a luxury apartment and indeed, the hotel staff told me it was 110 square meters in area, but there are many even larger suites [eg the 2 bedroom ones are 50% bigger again]

- the suite includes premium entertainment equipment including large swivel TV, blu-ray player, Bose sound system and even iPods.

- the grounds are as manicured as a golf course and in them is a large infinity pool that has an al fresco dining area next to it. Overlooking the beach front are a number of luxurious daybeds. Surfing lessons are also available, although most of the time we were there the beach was closed because of rips.

-the breakfast/ dining room overlooks the pool. It is also fun to dine outdoors next to the pool in the evenings. The food is excellent and very good value for such a luxury hotel. For instance, one evening featured a "Royal Balinese Feast" including the famous "babi guling" roast pig - only $25. Another evening there were the endless courses of the famous Dutch colonialist inspired Rijstaffel - another bargain at $30

If you happen to be in a party of 6 [as some in our group were], seriously consider staying in the "Beach House". This is a huge walled off villa in the hotel grounds with in effect three suites on the first floor and vast entertaining areas and pool running to ocean on ground floor. Effectively its price is equivalent to what you would pay for three double suites, but you actually occupy a large, private villa[minimum three day booking was required when our group was there]

after having visited Bali for almost 40 years, I am happy to report this hotel is among the best there is and although it has equals [most even more expensive], there are none better on the famous Kuta/Legian/Seminyak surf strip of Bali

Room Tip: I think all suites face the ocean - anyway, this is the only way to face!. All wings of the Legian h...

I guess my title says it all. The Legian Bali is a gorgeous Balinese style hotel perfectly situated right on the heart of the beach and every room has the sea view. We stayed there for 10D9N, we were in heaven... The Legian Bali offered not only a Luxurious accommodation, but also a very relaxing environment where we could just lie down on the sunbed facing the sea, went for morning walk at the beach, lie down for a read or went for a swim at the ocean or at the swimming pool. The view was magnificent! Each corner of The Legian Bali was soothing and filled with serene, unruffled tranquility... There was hardly any noise around the hotel and the Zen and calming atmosphere of The Legian Bali relaxed your mind and soul. It was just a really beautiful place to be...

Their Customer Service was tip-top! Balinese are the loveliest people on the planet and each and everyone of them in The Legian always greet the guest with a smile and they always fulfilled the guest's requirement with the best they could. From the reception, concierge, housekeeping, waiters/waitresses to driver, they all have the 5 star service attitude. We have requested for a room change at the beginning of our stay due to the brightness of the room, in return, they upgraded us almost immediately to a brighter room and we couldn't be happier! However, I have to say that regardless of whether it's a studio suite or one-bedroom suite that you stay in, each room is huge and spacious with a lounge room, kitchenette, it's own private balcony and sunbed. The rooms are amazing! And the view is spectacular! Besides the room and the wonderful sea view, The Legian Bali is also located very closely to the shopping area, a short stroll would take you to Seminyak Square and the closeby area for food and shopping. It's an easy access to everywhere else.

And what could I say about the food in The Legian Bali? One Word: AMAZING! Breakfast was a wide selection from Asian to Western, from fruit to sweets. They made beautiful poached eggs! Have it as Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and hollandaise sauce or Poached eggs with toast, that cannot go wrong. Try any flavor of pancakes, they were all delicious! And the French Toast with strawberries, mascarpone cheese and maple syrup was definitely to die for... So yummy! I love the Asian Congee, Nasi Goreng, Mee Goreng, Balinese Fish, Spicy Chicken etc. Try as much as you could and keep your options open to the morning breakfast. Try as well the Fish n Chips (although it's under Children's menu) for Room Service, OMG! I was really impressed with the battered fresh fish! The batter and the fish were both really fresh! And the chips were really well cooked, it was finger licking good! The portion was definitely good for lunch or snack and for both adult and kids. And I would highly recommend for you to try their dinner. My hubby and I are both foodie and we've almost been to most of the popular restaurants in Seminyak. And I would have to say The Legian Bali restaurant has one of the best technique, taste and presentation for fine dining. I would highly recommend their Chef's Tasting Plate especially if they have the Truffle Ravioli with Mushroom foam and shredded Truffles. It was definitely the most beautiful and delicious dish that cannot be missed! The homemade ravioli that was so thin but so deliciously well cooked, with the amazing flavored mushroom foam topped with dry shredded Truffles, the presentation and flavor of this dish, to us was a Winner!!! The Jamon Iberica (smoked ham) from France was absolutely fantastic! The aged smoked ham thinly sliced and accompanied by a piece of bruschetta, that flavorsome combination was just magnificent. Also, if you LOVE soft shell crab, The Legian Bali has definitely one of the most beautiful Soft Shell Crab made ever... The freshly deep fried Soft Shell Crab with the green in-house recipe butter sauce and top with watercress salad, the incredible combination of the plate absolutely blown me away... That light but flavorsome butter sauce with the fluffy deep fried Soft Shell Crab finished with the refreshing watercress salad, was a speechless combination... I love what came with the 4th course. The Wagyu sirloin with Pan Fried Foie Gras... Droolingly delicious... Also, definitely try their famous Beef Rendang. Such beautifully slow cooked Beef in Rendang sauce, the meat was cooked for hours and they were so flavorsome and tender, each bite you could feel the tendon and the meat beautifully dissolved together. Have them with rice and the chili eggplants, this local dish would leave you lingering around your taste bud with that powerful, beautiful flavor... Last but not least, Dessert... The simple Rasberry Meilleu-Feilleu was unbelivably light and delicious... A beautiful way to end the dinner...

I have read a lot of reviews about restaurants and especially the number one restaurant in Tripadvisor: The Breezes Bali. I could only say I was sooooo disappointed with The Breezes Bali's food, it was a let down for me. There was no chemistry in the food although the presentation was pretty. However, the food was lacking the most vital factor: the unity of food & flavor synchronization... I had really had a better meal in The Legian Bali restaurant, Sarong, La Lucciola, SIP Wine Bar, Mamasan, Metis etc. Each of them to us, was really better than The Breezes Bali. For the price we paid at The Breezes Bali, it was not worth it.
In contrast, that meal that we had at The Legian Bali was a highlight of our trip. We loved food and in The Legian Bali restaurant, we found the chemistry and synchronization between food/flavor... However, I do have to add that the ambience in The Legian Bali was really not as flourish or as beautiful as the Breezes or Sarong or Mamasan etc. It was a simple, open Kitchen concept restaurant with really warm waiters/waitresses and chefs.

In conclusion, we had an amazing trip and staying in The Legian Bali was one of the best choice we've made! We felt the fullness of the trip. It was filled with luxurious, enjoyment and relaxation... We will definitely stay at this beautiful place again, a place that we call Paradise... =)
