“Great hotel, great experience”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

My wife and I stayed for one night on the 10th September and returned on the 18th September for lunch.
The Legian is a fabulous property with very attentive staff and we loved the openness of the design with seas breezes blowing through the downstairs public areas. Our room was a little tired and quite dark but the bed was very comfortable.
The only area open for any criticism is the food. Bali is really trying hard to improve its restaurant offer to the more experienced traveler and we had some fabulous food on the island. Sadly this was not the case in the Legian. I found the food to be 'lazy' in its design for example: Fish and Chips in the beautiful sea front restaurant with a wonderful salty sea breeze blowing across you sounds like a dream come true for a chef. But frozen chips and battered fish that was soggy and still had the skin on and no mushy peas? I understand that this is a western dish cooked by Asian staff but if they can't do then don't do it. Frozen thin McDonald style chips is not the Legian!
All in all that did not spoil our enjoyment of this great hotel and I would highly recommend it but eat out.

We stayed for 6 nights earlier this month as part of a 3 stop tour of Bali & Lombok.
On reading other reviews much is covered of this amazing hotel. I just want to cover some special touches that help make it such a fabulous hotel.
From the moment you arrive at the airport you know you are going to be staying at a special hotel.
After a long tiring flight from the UK we were greeted by a representative from the hotel. He met us as we got off the plane & dealt with passports & visa's for us , collected luggage & swiftly bypassed the queues securing us in a lovely air conditioned car. It really was a lovely touch not having to deal with visa's etc.
On arriving at hotel we were personally met by hotel manager. On reading other reviews this looks to be a standard of the hotel. This is again a lovely touch that helps make you feel that bit special.
The management clearly have an excellent way of training their staff as they were all so charming & helpful . They had this very clever way with ear pieces of connecting to one another giving them the ability of discretely asking your room no. Repeating the no and then via ear piece would be given your name. They then made sure they used it. Again a lovely way to make you feel special.
The room/suite. Well other reviewers have covered so much about the suite's. But wow wow wow. Absolutely stunning & huge. Really loved the layout decor & furnishings. Bed was super comfy and loved the little notes left on your bed each evening.
What I loved most though was the huge balcony with day bed Beautiful views out across the ocean loved to sit there watching the sunset. What I loved most of all though was sitting on the balcony looking out to sea having our breakfast We did this everyday and it made the perfect start to the day. With no extra charge this was again a lovely touch provided by the hotel
I really could go on and on about all the good things about this hotel. Please if you are wondering which hotel to book in Seminyak, stop wondering & book The Legian. Yes not cheap but worth every penny.

After a 7 year hiatus I stayed at the Legian again recently. I only wish I hadn't left it so long to return. The staff are all friendly and efficient, rooms are spacious with the most wonderful view over the spectacular pool and beach. We ( 3 adults) stayed in a Club 2 bedroom suite which has more than enough room both inside and out on the huge balcony. Service throughout our stay was very good, from arrival to departure.

We have just returned from our 6th stay at the Legian and the place just gets better and better each time we return. The recent refurbishment has freshened up most things but the design has remained the same, which I like as it has a Balinese flair. Too many hotels are too generic.

The gym has been completely redone and brand new high-end Technogym equipment was delivered during our stay. The new gym looks fantastic and it makes the daily workout really enjoyable. The Spa offers some excellent treatments.

The new management team is highly competent with a great eye for detail. They have done a lot of fine-tuning and the Legian is now better than ever. The service is top-notch and we really felt pampered by the excellent staff; many have worked there for years and recognise us as returning guests.

Each day we had some delicious food for lunch and the kitchen gladly caters to special wishes. The beef tartare is really yummy.

The Legian is definitely a wonderful hotel and we have already bought tickets to return next year.

The only problem with writing a review about "The Legian" is trying to book back in when it has become well known as the most amazing, wonderful place in Bali that it is. There is simply nothing else like this hotel.

My family of four just had another 9 days in "paradise"...thank you Kevin and your fabulous team.

Room Tip: all rooms in this hotel are fantastic.

This is our second stay at the Legian, Bali. The first being 10 years prior. On this trip we had spent 6 weeks away travelling throughout Asia and parts of Europe. Our most impressive memory of quality of service and outstanding attention to detail was at the Legian, Bali. We have been fortunate to experience 5 * service and hotels with our business over many years but the Legian far exceeds the standards of any hotel we have ever stayed at bar none! It is obvious that the thing that drives this high level of attention to detail and customer interaction is the General Manager, Kevin. We found every member of his staff that we interacted with was always quietly doing that little bit more to ensure our stay was memorable. This level of service begins with Kevins personal warm welcome at check-in. It is the only hotel we have ever been in where you see the General Manager actively engaging and interacting with genuine interest with his guests as if you were in a small boutique hotel.

The beauty of the Legian is that you don't have to go anywhere. The rooms, food, grounds, outlook and the amenities are all first class.

We have already begun plans for our next visit at this beautiful hotel before the year is out.

Stayed at The Legian several times over the years and loved every minute of it.
The manager always greets me upon arrival, and many of the staff welcome me "home"!!The staff that don't know me are soon greeting me by name every corner I walk around.
Sitting having breakfast or lunch looking at the ocean is beautiful and the food is also devine.
Not a cheap hotel to stay in, but you get what you pay for.
