    The first guests to see the enhanced Legian Bali checked in last month as the resort put the finishing touches on a four-month refurbishment.

    With contributions from its guest feedback folder, the 68-room property reopened June 1 to reveal a new 30-meter infinity lap pool and beachfront sun deck, freshly landscaped gardens, improved lighting in half of its guest rooms and upgraded views of the spectacular Indian Ocean from its private, three-bedroom Beach House.Essential elements of the resort experience — natural light, easy airflow, prime ocean views and inviting green space — were all refreshed in the Legian’s most extensive facelift since its opening in 1996.

    “The past half-year has been all about taking a near-perfect property and layering in the subtleties (and one grand swimming pool!) to make it that much better,” said Kevin J. Abramowicz, the resort’s general manager. “Our guests love the Legian’s design, but they wanted more light, so we worked on more light.”

    Guests wanted a space to enjoy sundowners, so the resort laid down a deck; they wanted to do laps, so the resort built a gorgeous infinity pool right above the sands.

    “We absolutely listened to guest comments when planning the improvements,” said Abramowicz.

    In the first of two stages of renovations, workers took tools to half of the Legian’s guest rooms. They fixed the plumbing for better temperature control. They recalibrated the air circulation system in the bedroom, and they installed new lighting possibilities on the terrace.
