In the know
- Our favourite rooms Top-floor suites at the Legian command exceptional views over the hotel’s garden. We like the generously proportioned third-floor one-bedroom Deluxe Suites. At the Club, to single out just one of the capacious dream homes would be foolish, unless it’s the king-of-the-beach three-bedroom villa.
- Packing tips Although the resort itself is a laid-back, unfussy affair, for venturing out into the swish neighbourhood, pack a good dose of smart glitz, and Mrs Smith’s strappiest sandals. For glamorous Balinese accessories, head to Biasa on Jana Seminyak.
- Also Consult the guest directory for listings of Bali’s many temple ceremonies – the Legian concierge (or your Club butler) can arrange transport and advise on dress code.
Food and drink at The Legian & The Club
- Hotel restaurant The Restaurant at the Legian offers themed dinners on certain nights, including hot favourite, the Friday night seafood barbecue. Club guests can enjoy a similar menu in the more intimate Club Lounge.
- Dress code By day, anything more demure than a bikini or board shorts goes. Add glamour after dark.
- Top table Grab a seaside table at the Pool Bar for sundowners that lead into dinner. For Friday’s seafood extravaganza, book ahead and request a waterfront table.
- Last orders The Restaurant and Club Lounge both take orders until 10.30pm, but the Pool Bar doesn’t close until the last guest leaves.
- Room service Order from a globe-spanning menu throughout the day (and night).
- Hotel bar The Pool Bar and Ocean Bar at the Legian serve signature cocktails such as the Legian Mojito.
