The Legian Bali
Ranked #7 of 147 Hotels in Seminyak
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 November 2011

Nothing was too much for the staff the Legian. Firstly, as a honeymoon couple we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom luxury suite on arrival which was the size of a large London apartment! Now I'm not one to really use a concierge service that much at a hotel and service in general, whilst important, isn't my highest priority but at the Legian you just couldn't help be impressed by it. They were incredibly helpful with dinner reservations and resolved with ease a potentially highly stressful problem with our return flight home. Service by the pool was equally attentive and you really get the impression that every member of staff is doing their utmost to ensure your stay there is perfect.

As for the place itself, it is without doubt a great hotel but in terms of architecture and atmosphere just not as uniquely special as others in Bali. The hotel is sheltered from the crowds of Seminyak to some degree but you can't quite forget you're close to a very busy resort town. Clientele can be very varied too, yes you get the beautiful trendy young couples but also the families and slightly uncouth middle-aged westerners.

Breakfast however is superb and the free ice-cream by the pool a great touch. So if visiting Seminyak I would definitely recommend the Legian and for what it is, a famous hotel for all, then I really can't fault it. However, just make sure you dig a little deeper into Bali and also stay at one of the fantastic boutique hotels away from this part of the island.

We stayed at the Legian Bali for a week at the beginning of November 2011. Our stay could not have been more lovely. I had called beforehand to let the hotel know that I would be 6 months pregnant, as I did not want to have to walk too far from our room in the heat (Bali is rather humid in November). Upon arrival we were seated in the comfortable lounge area and provided with drinks while the staff checked us in and informed us that we had been given a complimentary upgrade to a (huge!) suite. The week just got better from there... All the staff were always so helpful and kind, it felt as if nothing was too much trouble. The hotel design is elegant and understated - dark woods match crisp white walls and beautiful, simple artwork complement without dominating. There is complimentary afternoon tea by the pool each day, water and soft drinks in the mini-bar are complimentary, wifi throughout the hotel is complimentary - and probably lots more I can't remember!

If there had to be a weaker spot, it would be the food. It was good, but for the prices (not expensive by Western standards, but at the top end for Seminyak) it never quite reached the heights that the rest of our stay at the Legian acheived - having said that, it is hard to compete with all the fantastic restaurants in Seminyak so maybe we were a little spoilt!

We stayed at the Legian with our 5 month old and nothing was too much trouble. They had set up a cot with mosquito net and not just a portacot but a proper one, provided a bottle steriliser, baby bath and highchair, all free of charge. We had to hire these items at the other hotel we stayed at so this was a nice addition.

The deluxe room gives you lots of space which was great with a little one. They service your room twice daily & replace towels etc which is fantastic. Free soft drinks in the minibar and plenty of water supplied for drinking and brushing your teeth. The breakfasts are great and we had it on our villa balcony everyday.

The only things to fault was the Nasi Goreng I ordered wasn't very authentic and had spicy crispy/fried chicken (looked & tasted like KFC hot & spicy) on the side which I've never seen in a nasi goreng before. The other issue was that the earthquake happened while we were there & there was no action plan. We were quite worried at the time and ran outside the builing, but the staff didn't know what to do we were worried that it might have triggered a tsunami & with a 5 month old it was pretty scary, but they were all laughing & no-one even spoke to us.

Apart from that, the pool is great & staff are very friendly & I would recommend this first class accommodation.

We stayed for 5 nights in a deluxe suite and cannot fault this hotel. The staff are so helpful and remember your name. Great buffet breakfast with western and asian food ( if you are Aussie they even have Vegemite). Complimentary soft drinks in minibar, Bluray library, complimentary afternoon tea,shuttle to Jl Seminyak, all rooms face the ocean,sandals and beach bag provided I want to live here!
We did have a problem with our A/C in the bedroom but was fixed in ten minutes.
Will definitely come back

A good mini-bar, comfortable beds, attractive rooms, the sound of the waves in your room -- they're everywhere. What makes a good hotel great? Staff, staff, staff. The Legian has been a fixture on this beach for 15 years or so, and I'll bet most of the staff have been there since the first day. They are warm and welcoming, and take great enjoyment from having happy clients in their "home". Good management that empowers them to be creative is essential -- this is not the kind of service a manager can simply command. Overall, it is very impressive.

On the other hand, there are always a few things ... The iPods in the rooms contain a huge stock of albums, but would greatly benefit from a selection of well-composed playlists -- when I go on holiday, I don't want to wade through Metallica and Burt Bacharach, I just want to choose a good jazz playlist. Next, the in-room decor could use a critical eye. The giant shells were impressive 15 years ago, but today we are reminded that these are endangered species and most are probably on the CITES list for banned trade. And how about certification as an officially green hotel? That would REALLY make clients happy.
