Ask people in Singapore to name their favourite tropical escape in the region, and many will say Bali. And what’s not to love? It’s close, it’s lined by beaches, the waves are great, and so is the food. Especially popular is the tranquil yet trendy coastline of Seminyak. Here we prof i l e one of the area’s smartest accommodation choices.

The Legian Bali is a dual-concept luxury resort located on Seminyak Beach, a 25-minute drive from Denpasar’s Ngurah Rai International Airport. It has 67 sea-facing suites designed by famed Indonesian designer Jaya Ibrahim, and a luxe two-storey private beach house within its main compound. Design features Despite all its modern facilities and comforts, there’s a rustic charm to the resort thanks to the use of Balinese and Indonesian architecture, and the prevalence of natural-fibre furniture. The property is set in lush landscaped gardens that feature Indonesian sculptures and indigenous art. Alternative accommodation To complement the suites, The Legian Bali has a more private compound called The Club at Legian, for those who prefer a more exclusive retreat. It houses 11 one- bedroom and three two-bedroom pool villas, with personal butlers trained by consultants from The Guild of Professional English Butlers. The Club also has its own 28-metre lap pool and private outdoor lounge area.
