Take a look at the best beach hotels in Legian.
The 57-room Bali Niksoma Boutique Beach Resort is an upscale, beachfront property with an elegant Balinese style and superb ocean views. Modern, handsome rooms have minibars, furnished balconies, and flat-screen TVs, and some have private pools and outdoor showers. There are awesome ocean views from two outdoor pools, where free fruit and drinks are offered each afternoon. The property also has a beachfront restaurant/bar, a serene spa with a hot tub, and a gym with a sauna. This is a good option for travelers seeking family-friendly accommodations downtown, though guests may also want to consider the nearby Padma Resort Bali at Legian, which has kids' activities, though is a bit farther from the beach.
Guests like the upscale Bandha Hotel & Suites for its modern design and long list of resort-style amenities in a boutique-like setting. It has two outdoor pools with swim-up bars, a hot tub, gym, spa, and a pretty beachfront location. The restaurant offers a mix of Indonesian and international cuisines, plus a free breakfast buffet. The 90 suites are sleek and clean with minimal design, kettles, air-conditioning, and flat-screen TVs -- though no minibars. Some suites have direct pool access or plunge pools. For destination weddings, the rooftop wedding chapel offers ocean views. Families might want to compare rates at the nearby Bali Mandira Beach Resort & Spa, as it offers kids’ perks like a children’s pool and kids’ club.
The 191-room Bali Mandira Beach Resort & Spa is an upscale hotel on Legian Kuta Beach with a modern yet authentic Balinese style and awesome ocean views throughout. Rooms are bright and contemporary, with flat-screen TVs and air-conditioning; some have balconies with ocean views, small private pools, or open-air showers. This lushly landscaped property offers two outdoor pools for kids and adults, a beautiful full-service spa, a poolside bar with oceanfront terrace, an Indonesian restaurant, and a rooftop terrace with panoramic ocean views. Wi-Fi, breakfast, and outdoor parking are free. Facilities here tend to get crowded -- particularly the pools and restaurant. Guests may also want to consider the Padma Resort Bali at Legian, which is located next door, similarly priced, and offers luxury accommodations.
Legian Beach Hotel is a modern three-and-a-half pearl hotel set on lush tropical grounds, and located across a pedestrian-only street from Legian Beach. The extensive array of features includes two outdoor pools, a full-service spa, kids' club, and several restaurants and bars. With its spacious rooms -- including family options plus bungalows and even villas with private pools -- the hotel is particularly good for large groups and families. All 218 rooms feature free Wi-Fi, iPod docks, CD/DVD players, and flat-screen TVs, though we spotted just a bit of wear in some and street-facing rooms may pick up traffic noise. The Legian Beach Hotel compares favorably to the nearby Pullman Bali Legian Nirwana when it comes to facilities and beach-ready location, but rooms aren't quite as polished.
The Pullman Bali Legian Beach is an upscale 353-room resort located directly across the street from Legian Beach in Kuta. Rooms range in size and level of luxury, from standard Deluxe Rooms to Two-Bedroom Suites. Those facing the street can be noisy. Two large pools (one on the rooftop) with poolside bars and terrific sunset views, as well as a full-service spa, make this hotel a terrific choice for guests looking to relax. There’s also a 24-hour business center, a well-stocked gym, and meeting spaces available. A delicious and varied international buffet is available in one of the three on-site restaurants, but it costs extra.
The Camakila Legian Bali is a three-and-a-half pearl resort on lush and secluded tropical grounds across a pedestrianized road from Legian Beach. The highlight here is the two outdoor swimming pools, one of which is a large lagoon pool and the other a small infinity-edged pool overlooking the beach and ocean. Also on site are a spa, sauna, and fitness center. The 117 rooms are spacious and modern, and come with minibars, free Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs. All have balconies and terraces, and some open to the lagoon pool. The rooms aren't quite as upscale as the nearby Bali Niksoma Boutique Beach Resort, but prices here are a little more affordable.
Puri Raja is a three-pearl hotel located across the road from Legian Beach, and a short walk from plenty of shops, bars, nightclubs, and restaurants. The 72 rooms are clean and simple, if a little worn and lacking much in the way Balinese style. All come with minibars, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and balconies or terraces. The hotel's two swimming pools are a highlight, one of which has a swim-up bar and lively vibe, while the other offers a more secluded vibe. There's also a restaurant facing the beach, which serves good-quality Indonesian and Western fare. Travelers who want to spend a bit more might consider the slightly more upscale Bali Niksoma Boutique Beach Resort, which has more modern style and features like a spa and fitness center.
Melasti Legian Beach Resort & Spa is a dated two-and-a-half-pearl resort in central Legian, across a pedestrian-only street from Legian Beach, and a short walk from shopping and dining. The grounds, public spaces, and many of the 191 rooms are rather tired, though there are a good range of facilities on-site and rates are reasonable for the property's proximity to the beach. The three outdoor swimming pools include two large pools with poolside bars, and there's also a spa, playground, free breakfast buffet, and an Indonesian restaurant. Rooms come with mini-fridges, air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi, and balconies or terraces. For an alternative with a fresher, more modern style at similar rates, consider the Swiss-Belinn Legian, which is just around the corner.
Seaside Suites Bali is a three-and-a-half pearl hotel in an excellent northern Legian location across the road from Double Six Beach. The hotel's prime draw is its 28 spacious studios and suites. All are modern and come with minibars, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and balconies or terraces. Suites feature kitchens and living/dining areas, and some have their own pools. The hotel also features a large outdoor pool, beach-facing restaurant and bar, excellent fitness center, and spa with a sauna, steam room, and hot tub. Seaside Suites is a good deal for those who want a spacious room and a spot near the beach, but without the price tag of a luxury hotel. However, while its rooms are more spacious than the nearby Camakila, it lacks a second pool.
