THE LEGIAN Bali reopened on June 1, 2012 following a four-month makeover.
Natural light, easy airflow, prime ocean views and inviting green space were all on the agenda as the hotel underwent its most extensive facelift since opening in 1996.
The 68-room resort now boasts a new 30-metre infinity lap pool and beachfront sun deck, freshly landscaped gardens, improved lighting in half of its guestrooms, and upgraded views of the Indian Ocean from its private, three-bedroom Beach House.
In the first of two stages of renovations, improvement works were focused on the guest rooms. The plumbing was fixed for better temperature control, the air circulation systems were recalibrated, and new lighting was installed on the terraces.
The resort's exclusive Beach House was the recipient of a new 20m2 terrace with sunbeds, accessible from the master bedroom, which was also rearranged for better ocean views. More windows were installed to allow more sunlight into the building, while the living room was opened up with two walls of transparent folding doors – giving guests the option to enjoy 180-degree panoramic views.
The new infinity pool, the highlight of the refurbishment, was built from the ground up closer to the shoreline than the resort's two other oases. Meanwhile, the new deck space fronting the Ocean Bar delivers peerless views of the sunset.
