Last year, I was leaving The Legian with a somewhat heavy heart (see my previous review): I was concerned if the legendary outstanding quality of this place could be sustained by the then management. When I was checking out this last Monday, my mood was quite different: the good old Legian is not just still with us but it moves on very strongly fully retaining all these essential truly luxury notes that make it so unique and special. I congratulate the new management on that most sincerely and full heartedly. The level of service is still outstanding and beyond any description or reasonable anticipation. They do still remember what you like to have for breakfast and what particular type of beer at what particular time of the day you enjoy on the beach - and the last time you ordered those was more than a year ago but they do still remember. The concierge desk still remembers what sightseeing trips you booked with them last year (and a year before) and greet you on your check-in with a suggestion of another one, which will so well complement the ones you've already taken because it is of the same theme and nature as them. The rooms are still spotlessly clean and inobtrusively and almost invisibly serviced twice a day. You still enjoy your complimentary afternoon tea either on a beach, or in your room, or in a beach bar with the gourmet petit four that come from the restaurant. The outstanding level of service is still unbelievably uniform - one can hardly single out any particular employee as they all demonstrate full professional and personal excellence. To achieve such a uniformity is extremely difficult and, if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I'd have said impossible, it is a triumph of thoughtful and professional management. Many sincere thanks for their outstanding performance to Pering, Merta, Alit, Budi, Oka, Eric, Giri (beach pool boys), Cetrawan, Dayu, Winrathi, Henry (pool bar & restaurant waiters and waitresses), Heri, Lou (front desk and concierges)... I hope I spell their names right. Special thanks to chef Luke whose attention and engagement made my two weeks at The Legian a very special experience. To be a returing guest and being attended by them is as much a privilege as it is a true pleasure. I already look forward to being back. Hopefully, in not too a distant future.
This is a case of you get what you pay for. On the pricey side, but really good. Possibly the pick of hotels in Seminyak. 1. Rooms are large and spacious, apartment sized, light and airy (stayed in deluxe suite) 2. Food actually isn't too expensive and is of a high quality. Plenty of other choices outside the front door as well 3. Gym is ok, quite large for a hotel gym, mostly machines but does have decent free weights. 4. Surfboard and boogie boards available for free to guests, conveniently located with the lifeguard. 5. Ambience / atmosphere very nice and chilled. 6. What sets this place apart is the service. We did go during a low week just before school holidays, but still, staff were so genuinely warm and attentive. 7. Not a huge resort pro or con' Main pros: staff, quality of food, room size ++. Cons: The only real criticism would be the outrageous and I mean that, cost of wine. Laughable. Unbelievably expensive. Just thinking about it makes me laugh. The resort could do with some other simple sporting activities like a table tennis table ... would be cheap. We will be back though, due to the overall quality of the place.
"Great place to eat"
Great restaurant !! The terrace in front of the sea is beautifull. We had the tasting menu. Food, wine and service are really good. The chef is creative and the food looks amazing in the plate. I highly recommend
