“True Excellence”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Having just returned from a 12 night stay at The Legian- we can't wait to go back! Everything here is fantastic and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Seminyak. The property is beautiful with an amazing pool area overlooking the ocean with a choice of loungers or daybeds and two pool bars servicing each side of the pools. The room are beautiful- we stayed in a one bedroom suite. My only negative is that the rooms are so dark! The bathroom is the only room with a mirror and it is so dark and almost impossible to do make up/ hair etc. I understand about mood lighting, but there should be a dimmer option to have it lighter when needed.

We spent the first few nights in a 2nd floor room (there are 3 floors in total) but our view was completely obstructed by trees, which also made the room a lot darker. We were eventually moved to a 3rd floor room and felt like we had been upgraded! This was so much brighter and sunnier and we had a beautiful ocean view now to enjoy the sunsets.

We ate dinner twice in the restaurant, which was excellent both times. The food is of a very high standard. Breakfast is fantastic, whilst overlooking the pool and ocean- the food options are great and are of an excellent standard. The brioche french toast is heaven! The staff remembered your coffee/ tea preferences.

I visited the spa, which was OK. The massage was OK, not excellent and the facilities weren't as luxurious as other spas but the price was very reasonable for a resort so I can't really complain! Still worth a visit.

What really makes this hotel are the staff. As others have said, everyone from housekeeping, to drivers, to concierge, to the pool staff are just excellent. Everyone greets you when they see you, remember your name and your likes/dislikes. The pool staff would anticipate your needs without being intrusive. They really did make our holiday so pleasurable. I can't say enough about how wonderful they were.

Everything here is fabulous- rooms, staff, food, location, pool- do not hesitate to book here- you will love it!

Room Tip: Third floor is best- but lower floors without trees in the way also had good ocean views.

I stayed here last year with a friend for a girls trip and loved it so much, came back this trip with my partner and I loved it just as much. The best location on the beach, great for shopping and restuarants are all close by. The hotel itself, rooms and pool area are all flawless -plus little extra touches that makes it feels like home away from home. Staff are well trained and are amazing at remembering you, your name, your likes and dislikes, without being over-bearing. If you are looking for a true 5 star experience - look no further. Highly recommend the morning yoga classes too! We stayed at other 5 star properties (supposedly) that did not come close to what you can expect from the team at The Legian.

We have been staying at The Legian ever since 2004 when visiting Bali. There is no other hotel in Bali to offer everything one could expect: the location is perfect for long walks on the beach and surfing, great shopping nearby, various restaurants walking distance to choose from; the design of the hotel and the grounds - it has been said in the previous reviews time and again - simply breath taking!!!; the most polite, friendly and helpful staff who would go the extra mile to make sure the guests are well looked after! One needs to see it to believe it! It is heaven!

Room Tip: All studios and suites in the hotel are facing the ocean. Higher floor for better view, ground floor...

We stayed at the Legian for 5 nights in a 1 bedroom suite on the ground floor overlooking the lawn.
Exceptional hotel and one of the best we have stayed at and we have been fortunate enough to stay in some marvellous hotels over the years.
The service was outstanding from being picked up at the airport, through to check in and being shown around the room with every detail being explained. The suite was large and extremely well appointed with so many things thought about to make our stay so enjoyable. We enjoyed the taster meal in the restaurant one night and this was very good with the exception of one course which all 4 of us thought was disappointing. We also enjoyed the sea food BBQ evening which was absolutely wonderful!
The service was outstanding by all members of staff, mostly using your name which is a great touch. Breakfast was excellent with great service once again.
Afternoon tea is a wonderful bonus and really nice idea. Water provided continuously when sunbathing together with spray mist and cold towels all added to the feeling of luxury and were very welcoming in the heat.
The grounds are very well maintained and the whole feel of the hotel is that of shear luxury. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this hotel if ever staying in Bali again.
If I was to give any negative feedback it would be for the terrace of the room to be better lit and have a fan. There was a lot of shrubbery around the terrace which it made it too dark to use and also too hot without an outside fan. Also I found the inside of the suite to be a little too dark for my liking and could have been better lit. Again this was possibly due to being on the ground floor with so many plants close by.
What became very evident during our stay was the dedication of the staff and their attention to detail. They all appear to take great pride in their work and will go to great lengths to make sure all guests enjoy a memorable stay at the Legian.

This place was perfect. I can't say there was one problem with our stay. Check in was efficient; actually better than efficient. We had stayed the 3 nights prior at their partner hotel, the Chedi Club in Ubud, and they had transfered virtually all our passport and payment information. Made the process take only moments. We had a standard studio suite and I can say that, for a couple, this was far more than we even needed. Had all the amenities one could need.

Service at the pool & at the restaurants was amazing. Concierge was a great help and we frequently would use the pool staff as a liason between ourselves and the concierege which was great (since we were usually laying by the pool when we decided where we wanted to get dinner reservations at). We didn't do a full sit down dinner in the restaurant, but all the snacks pool side were great, so I can only assume its the same in the restaurant. Pools are perfect and even kid friendly.

Room Tip: I would recommend a first floor room. The view may be a bit more straightfoward to the beach but you...

This truly is a world class hotel with an outstanding position, gorgeous romantic aspect onto the beach, magnificent pools and grounds, beautiful rooms with great views. The food and beverage was good, but best of all were the smiling, helpful and genuinely caring team of people! Starting with Kevin (GM) who is a wonderful host, working through the concierge desk, the front desk staff, the drivers, the staff in room service and around the pool, and everyone knew us by name! This is a country that truly understands the meaning of service and this hotel exemplifies this to the maximum.

Nothing was too much trouble. My dietary needs around healthy options, gluten-free, no chilli all catered to with a smile. They even made special dishes up for me as modifications on the divine seafood buffet.

The massage treatment was also quite heavenly - try the four hands massage!
I do think a good steam room and jacuzzi would enhance the hotel further but the pools were so good for doing laps or just lazing around. The complimentary afternoon tea served to you on gorgeous daybeds or sun lounges was just too civilised for words!

And I even got to splash around in the ocean a few steps from my day bed.

I have stayed at some of the best hotels in the world. This is in my top 5.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor for better views of the ocean

My friend and I stayed at The Legian (for me it was my fourth stay and for my friend it was the second stay!). We enjoyed everything so very much! On our flight back to australia we couldn't quite work out which are the best aspects because everything was perfect. I would like to start on the property and facilities - the rooms are gorgeous! The pool is magnificant! The gynasium has been upgraded and is fantastic! The food and beverage is exceptional but the best part of all is the people! Starting with Kevin (Hotel Manager) who is a wonderful host, working through the concierge desk, the front desk staff, the staff in room service, the cleaning staff in the room, and the wonderful, helpful and courteous pool men (Cendana, Edi, Buri, etc.) - everyone knew us by name! I have travelled extensively throughout Asia and the only other hotel that comes close to The Legian is the Metropole in Hanoi. We will stay again and again at The Legian. Thank you to everyone for a lovely five days!

Room Tip: We needed a twin room - room 313 is fantastic!
