Bali: The Laguna, A Luxury Collection Resort & Spa

The past few months have been quite hectic but so much fun! At the end of June I went back to Hong Kong for a bit, then on to Bali to attend my best friend's beautiful wedding at Khayangan Estate in Uluwatu. My mom and grandma then flew back to San Francisco with me, and spent a month here. So much good food and family time.

For my recent visit to Bali, we looked for a Starwood hotel, and although I really wanted to stay at the W Hotel, it was a few hundred US dollars more per night than The Laguna Resort. I ended up being very happy with The Laguna Resort, and can't wait to return one day!

The open air lobby where you can sit anywhere, and a member of the front desk staff will come over to you to process the check in

Tasty and refreshing welcome drinks and cold towels (cold towels are one of my favorite things)

The pool seems to wind all throughout the hotel, and never felt too crowded.

Plenty of lounge chairs, the clearest ocean water, and none of those people constantly trying to sell you things while on the beach.

Lagoon access rooms on the ground floor of this hotel block

Cabanas are spread out over the property and available for rent

Banyubiru, the restaurant where International and Asian cuisines are served. The outdoor seating offers lagoon and garden views

We were upgraded from a deluxe garden room to a deluxe lagoon access room (3 tiers higher) at check in, but we never took advantage of jumping into the pool from the balcony. I thought the main pool was nicer, as it has prettier landscaping (palm trees and such) and a closer proximity to the beach, so on second thought, a higher floor room with a view (ocean or garden) would've probably been more enjoyable. In addition to its guest rooms, The Laguna Resort also offers villas with private pools.

The breakfast buffet at Banyubiru was nothing short of amazing, and I'm glad, because Asian hotels are known for having the best buffets. There's also a discount for SPG members. There are several restaurants on the premises, and above the beachfront restaurant, there were tiny lamps hanging from the trees. A lovely romantic option for couples! 

Overall a perfect stay with yet another SPG hotel.
