The truth is we stayed at Mercure Bali Legian because the rest of the wedding party was staying here as well. Online it seemed to be a fairly decent property and a reasonable price, so we clicked confirmed, and we’re on our way. Now, after living in Australia, we had a few ideas of what the Mercure brand would hold, so we weren’t expecting much.
When we arrived by taxi, we were greeted by a full-service hotel with porters, concierge, a gym, a spa and a ground-floor restaurant that sprawled out towards the pool. I was pleasantly surprised and quickly reminded that hotels in Asia are much more value than anywhere in the world.
Mercure Bali Legian is ideally located in the Legian area at the intersection of popular tourist destinations. This made it very easy to explore the surrounds by foot, and it was only a 10-minute walk to the Legian Beach.
We stayed in a guest room for one week, and it was perfect. Anything more than this, I would have upgraded to a higher room type just to give us a bit more space. We definitely enjoyed our time and would come back to this property in a heartbeat.
