Reviewed 5 October 2012

When Perry Como sang of 'Bali High' way back in 1949, he could have easily taken his inspiration form; "The Laguna Resort & Spa, Nusa Dua. The whitewashed resort with its open air reception pagoda makes you feel as if you are stepping into a postcard the moment you alight from your transport.

As you approach the reception desk you are gently guided to a comfortable seat in the lobby where a complementary iced-tea and cooling towel is offered-both are extremely welcome. To Para-phrase Robin Williams in 'Good Morning Vietnam,' Bali is hot. How hot? Dam Hot.

And in the months Oct to December, its at its most brutal. Check in is friendly and efficient, as is everything else in the resort. After the formalities you are escorted to your room where some serious relaxing can begin.

I was there on business and had a one bed room suite. I was taken through its functions by my butler. The room had a lovely cream texture. Tastefully furnished in I presume local timbers, the room is light and airy, clean and well maintained. The shower is large and hot, the beds cool and comfortable.

And speaking of water, that's the one thing you are not short of. As the name "Resort & Spa" would suggest, I doubt if there is any room on the property more than a couple of feet from the waters edge, beit pool or ocean.

Only being there one night, I didn't have time to fully indulge in water pursuits- but lets say everyone else looked to be having a really good time. The resort is laid out in a way that its very difficult to tell how many people are actually staying there. There is a great feeling of space and privacy- something not always in great supply in Bali.

I did eat both breakfast, lunch and dinner at the resort. All were fantastic. Just one point. Both restaurants open at the same time 7am. Given that work is the last thing on the minds of the majority of guests then the opening time isn't an issue. If you have an early morning meeting might I suggest that one restaurant perhaps open a bit earlier. Because once you leave the clam gated- community of Nusa Dua. Bali traffic is a nightmare.

The Balinese are extremely hospitable and all the staff exemplify this trait. Everyone makes eye contact with you and says hello or how your enjoying your stay et al. In short, they acknowledge your existence and in the main seem to be pretty pleased that you do exist.

If you can drag yourself away from the resort, then you will most likely find yourself in Kuta. This is only my private opinion- I can't think of a single redeeming feature that would recommend the place. If the resort is cool and calming. Kuta is close and repressive. It tightly packed streets heaving with humid soaked humanity ( who all seem to be riding scooters) the din of which bores into your very soul makes you hunger to get away.

When you feel like this ( and you will eventually) just jump in a cab and listen for the faint croon of Perry Como to guide you home!!

Beautiful Hotel with lovely gardens and one of the biggest pools Ive seen at a Hotel. The rooms are very large, modern but still have the taditional charm. Big comfy bed, very tidy and well maintained. Lovely balcony with sea/pool views and a waterfall/lagoon just outside our room was very nice and relaxing. Food was very expensive at the restaurant especially for Bali and wasnt value for money. Nice Cabanas by the pool although they are expensive to hire, which I found odd considering the amount of money we paid to stay at the Hotel. Great facilities and restaurants, lovely breakfast with great variety of fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereals, egg sation, asian dishes, western dishes, salads, variety of fresh breads and pastries and a juice bar! Nusa Dua is quiet a distance from Kuta and it is a pain to get a taxi due to traffice situation. Nusa Dua is nice and has lovely gardens,beaches, walking paths and markets.Not a hotel for families or someone looking to shop and spend alot of time in Kuta.

We stayed at the laguna in May 2011 and enjoyed our stay so much that we booked a six night stay in late September 2012. The beautiful grounds and lagoon concept still wow but we felt our stay was lacking on a number of fronts, some of which were more down to other guests rather than the hotel itself.

We stayed in a corner room for a bit more space. Unfortunately the 4th floor guest room we were first shown was very overlooked and was a rather worn room with dents in the wooden flooring and quite a few ants in the bathroom. So we asked for another room. Our 2nd floor room was better located and less worn. But still it didn't feel like a five star room with small issues like pictures and evacuation notice on the door all at crooked angles! Mismatching bed valances etc. such things aren't a big deal but chip away at notions of being in a hotel from a 'luxury collection'.

Staff were very smiley, charming and helpful on the whole. We only used the 'butler service' twice. We ordered tea and waited forty minutes! To their credit, they did apologise but it did leave me thinking 'just give me the damn kettle!'.

Breakfast is ok but not a patch on other five star hotels I have recently stayed in. Fruit juices were not freshly squeezed and limited to orange and guava. Personally I like grapefruit! Good crispy bacon and egg station though. The complimentary afternoon tea is no longer self service. Rather a cake stand is brought to your table. They were edible but no more- none made me think 'hmmm delicious!'. We enjoyed cocktails most nights at the happy hours, bringing them down to 80rp each or around £5 sterling. The choices were all rather synthetic- would have preferred a decent magarita without the fruit syrup.

However, the thing that really detracted from our stay was the conduct of some of the other guests which a hotel has little control over. Some guests moved their sunbeds all over the place, making the resort look a mess. Far more guests smoking than our previous stay, some with little regard for neighbours by them. Lots of folk drinking alcohol at 11am in the morning, leaving glasses by the pool edge etc. at the risk of sounding a snob, I was also surprised to see some guests in full football strips, bintang vests etc. i suspect they were mainly fellow Brits!

So not quite the tropical paradise that we had hoped for, but not quite a paradise lost!

This resort is amazing. So clean, amaxing location and so relaxing. The staff are so friendly, plesent, courteous, helpful and nothing is a problem to them. The food was excellent especially the lunch menu offered from the bar which we had everyday over looking the bay. There is a very relaxed atmosphere in the complex. I would highly recommend this resort for couples who is looking for a relaxation break in a very special place. I will defiantly be returning to this resort.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms are nice and some get the evening sun

Our stay at this resort was not great in spite of a recommendation from friends who stayed there when it was owned by the Sheraton Group.Things have clearly not improved since then and it should only be considered a 4 star hotel at best. We had just spent three nights at the nearby Intercontinental Hotel in Jimbaran Bay and the Laguna was more expensive and of inferior quality. The booking was botched in spite of us making it clear on line what we wanted and we had to pay for an upgrade to get what we originally asked for ( a ground floor pool view room). The first room that we were put into smelt of mould and it seemed like it needed a prolonged airing. Food and beverages were very expensive at the Laguna although the quality was good. The rooms were fairly small and some of the showers were built for midgets. The pools and the beach areas were well looked after, but we had a forgettable stay at this property.

Dear Tank09,

Warmest wishes from the Laguna Resort & Spa!

Thank you for taking some of your precious time to post your review on TripAdvisor.

First of all, I would like to thank you for your constructive feedback and I regret to learn that you were not entirely satisfied with your stay with us. In reference to your comments related to your room allocation, please be advised that we do not have Lagoon View rooms on the ground floor, as the Lagoon rooms on the ground floor are all Lagoon Access rooms which are of a higher and different category.

I have noted your additional comments re the rooms as well as your feedback in regards to the prices. Rest assured that we value your feedback and we'll continue to make sure that the pricing of all our services, including Food & Beverage are in line with similar 5 star resorts in the area. Please be advised that at The Laguna we display net prices on all our menus, which means that the prices are already inclusive of 21% government tax and service charge, which is not the case in most other establishments where this is added to your final bill.

I would like to thank you for your positive comments regarding our pool and beach areas. We do hope that you will allow us to serve and welcome you back again to The Laguna Resort & Spa in the near future.

Please do not hesitate to contact me directly in case you wish to discuss your experience in our resort further.

Sincerely yours,



Mark van Leeuwen
Hotel Manager
