Gorgeous Bali Mandira is a vast and sprawling resort-with-the-works opposite the beach at Legian. Got kids? Honeymoon? Solo retreat? Or just want an easy, everything-at-your-fingertips resort? Bali Mandira has you covered.

The sprawling resort offers excellent oceanfront pools, kids club with free activities, an ultra-hip beach club housed in a striking bamboo structure plus restaurants, bars and a spa. There are also yoga and cooking classes and you can learn to make Balinese handicrafts, too.

A four-storey building sits at the back of the property, accommodating the superior and family rooms, and deluxe and club rooms occupy double-storey Balinese-style brick and carved-stone cottages peppered around the well tended established gardens.

The style is classic and comfortable, but if it’s within your budget, it’s worth upgrading to one of the cottages, as the interiors are a little fresher and modern albeit a bit compact (make sure you request one of the upgraded rooms, as some are older style and a tad tired). More privacy is offered with courtyard rooms and villas.

Most categories provide flexibility with connecting doors and rooms are well appointed with all the mod cons you’d expect at this top price bracket. Along the Legian beachfront strip you will find resorts with plusher and more luxurious rooms, but we think the pools and facilities here are among the best.

We love the large lagoon-style pool with sandy fake beach and waterslide, a terrific spot for families and vast enough to accommodate the hordes, but our pick is the smaller adults-only infinity pool overlooking the ocean, with attached Jacuzzi, part of the Azul Beach Club—reserve a shady cabana here for the day for a minimum 250,000 rupiah spend, then when it’s time for sunset, climb the bamboo tower overlooking the beach and relax with a Tiki-style cocktail from an extensive list. Daily buffet breakfast is included as part of the deal and an upgrade to club rooms scores extras such as cocktails and afternoon tea. Charming, friendly staff can arrange tours and excursions.

Bali Mandira is a great pick for the sit-and-sip crowd, but if you plan to spend your holiday out and about exploring Bali, it may not be worth the spend. If you prefer a little more luxury in your resort sleeping chamber, neighbouring Padma is worth a look.
