“Incredible - no other word to describe it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

My husband and I have just returned from our honeymoon to Hong Kong and Bali and during our trip we decided to stay for 8 days at The Legian. We have never written a review before but felt the need to put pen to paper as it was such an amazing decision staying here! Before we arrived, we had read the wonderful reviews on tripadvisor and had actually by chance met several people who had also stayed here and couldn't fault the hotel so we were really excited before our holiday had even started!

The hotel itself is simply beautiful with immaculate grounds and infinity pool area. We stayed in a huge one bedroom deluxe suite on the third floor which had clearly been designed with sumptuous taste and and it boasted magnificent sea views. When we arrived a gorgeous honeymoon cake and bottle of champagne was waiting for us!

The second main point we feel the need to make is the staff- they are so caring and considerate and can't do enough for you to the point at times when we felt slightly embarrassed that they wouldn't even let us move our deck chair ourselves but this isn't done in a pretentious way. We told them it was fine we could do it and their response was simply ''relax you are on holiday''.They genuinely go out of their way to ensure that you have an experience of a lifetime.

The concierge and reception staff were very helpful and were able to advise on some wonderful restaurants and day trips (we did Elephant Safari - definitely a must). The two managers are a credit to the hotel and were always walking around speaking to us and other guests to ensure that everything was to our satisfaction. Nothing was ever too much trouble and there is clearly great communication between all teams at the hotel.
The staff all address you by name, know your order at breakfast, your favourite drink and where you prefer to sunbathe!

The breakfast at the hotel is very tasty and we found that there was a wide variety of cereals, yogurt, fruit and breads etc and hot dishes on the menu to choose from (everything hot is cooked fresh for each person). The lunches were divine and we were also offered complimentary afternoon tea each afternoon at 4pm. We never got round to dining at the hotel restaurant but the menu looked delicious and other guests have commented on the high standard of the food there. The hotel is so well located that you are literally a 5 minute walk away from a bustling road filled with restaurants and bars and lovely clothing and swimwear shops.

We also made use of the gym which had all exercise equipment one would require and every morning it offers a free yoga class for all guests. As part of our honeymoon package we received a 1 hour complimentary Balinese massage in the spa which was fantastic!

If you go to Bali DO NOT stay anywhere else - we can't wait to return!

I have stayed at the Legian Club Villas twice before but as I was traveling alone this time, I opted for the main hotel. I had expected less than the club but no, the attention to detail, the staff attitude, the rooms, the food, the management response was honestly 100% throughout. I'm picky and probably not an easy guest but The Legian is warm, welcoming, accommodating and I think easily the best in Bali by a very long way!

The rooms are huge, traditional but in perfect order, and always immaculately cleaned. Good facilities, Bose sound etc, a couple of great infinity pools facing the ocean right on the beach, a great bar and a very very good restaurant, all with amazing service throughout - what more do I need?

This remains my only choice for Bali and I've looked at the W and a couple of others but this feels like home each time. The hotel is in the best part of Seminyak, near all the good shops and restaurants. I'm sorry if this all sounds like an advert, but I rarely get this enthusiastic about somewhere!!

Room Tip: The one bed studio ground floor are the best rooms for the price.

The Legian is incredible! I have never stayed at a hotel which is so unbelievably slick. The three tiered swimming pool is gorgeous and there were rarely more than two people in each tier at a time. The staff are phenomenal; constantly smiling and nothing is too much for them. If you leave your sun lounger they straighten your towels, your glass of ice water is constantly topped up and you are even given a mist spray to keep you cool. The beach is great for surfing (the hotel have boards you can borrow) but the current is quite strong and not a turquoise water white sand place. Tea is served whilst you are lying on your sun lounger! A three tiered cake stand is delivered with incredibly delicious treats. We were upgraded to a suite over looking the sea which was lovely. Other reviews have mentioned the rooms being dark. This isn't something we would have noticed/ mentioned but it's true they aren't bright and sunny but definitely not dark and dingey. The position was great, with lots of amazing restaurants within walking distance and amazing shopping. Really hope we can come back!

We are coming to the end of what can only be described as a wonderful holiday under the guidance of probably one of the leading hotel managers in the world Kevin Abramowicz. Together with his superb management and staff they have provided us with a memorable experience.

During the week it was my wife's birthday and after breakfast we heard all the staff entering the villa singing Happy Birthday. Much to her embarrassment they provided her with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers, champagne and a birthday cake. Something we will always remember.

We are now sat alongside the pool in our garden villa in the most tranquil setting one could imagine. With the sound of Balinese music drifting across the gardens from the beach.

The key to this wonderful holiday as been the service our butler Eka has provided us with. He is so knowledgable, experienced and informative on all aspects of Balinese life. We prefer privacy at certain times of the day and with his expert eye for detail and personal service this has been made possible throughout our stay.

Like many trippers have commented everything as been said about the hotel, so we would only be repeating what others have said. However it is very clear to see why it's the No 1 in Seminyak.

Once again an enormous thank you to everyone at the Club and Hotel who made this holiday so very special.

Room Tip: It's expensive but stay at the " Club " if at all possible

If you are looking to stay in Seminyak the one and only hotel to consider is The Legian. It was truly faultless from begining to the end in every possible way. We stayed for 2 weeks and the service never lessened infact I would probably say improved as the staff got to know you better. From Senior Management namely Rohann Chandra couldn't have been more accomodating and always went the extra mile to the more Junior Staff, everyday producing a genuine smile and the need to want to please. A truly memorable experience that I have already recommended to others on my return to the UK.
Our reson to return to Bali would have to be to experience The Legian all over again but cannot give a reason how they could possibly improve on what they already have a perfect combination to be left alone when required to the continous attentiveness when needed... makes the perfect and idyllic hotel experience.

Thank you so much to both Rohann and Kevin from Mr & Mrs Pond

Whilst this review is actually not focused on the original visit, I am reminded of a wonderful trip with world class hospitality and service as always enjoyed at The Legian. Today I received a birthday card at home a year to the day of my visit. Thank you! Please also note that everyone should go and try the steak with a lobe of foie gras!

I can't add much to what's already been said, other than it's really pricey. But the service is amazing, second to none. Almost pre-emptive. Overall, a very well-run, beautiful hotel, with really good room service and plenty on offer for vegetarians.

Room Tip: Go for a room on the first floor.
