Courtyard of the All Seasons hotel in Legian, Bali
My larger than normal guest room.
The All Seasons is a relatively new hotel in the inner bowels of Legian. Like most of Accor group's newer hotels throughout Indonesia, the hotel's design features a somewhat retro 70's feel, with clean lines and splashes of bold earth tones.
Rooms are arranged around a central courtyard holding the swimming pool. My third floor room is right in the middle of the "short" side, with a nice view of the pool from the large balcony. This specific room was a bit larger than the others, and featured clean modern lines using glass, wood and steel. The room was tiled rather than carpeted, but it's entirely appropriate for a tropical beach resort. There was a small refrigerator, but it was not stocked, which I thought was a good thing. There are plenty of nearby mini-markets where you can purchase whatever you want to drink and stock the refrigerator at a small fraction of normal hotel prices.
Hotel facilities include swimming pool, spa, restaurant and a pool-side bar.
Rooms feature air conditioning, hot and cold water, refrigerator, complementary coffee and tea, color televisions (many channels) and telephones.
Pluses: Good location, near restaurants and shopping.
Minuses: No elevators, making it a bit of a hike to third floor rooms with luggage.
