Mostly modern boutique resort with calm vibe and lush grounds
Opened in 2014, Astagina Resort is located in a busy tourist area, but it has a quiet and peaceful setting, with the feel of a haven away from the hustle and bustle of Legian. With its large trees and attractive gardens, the immediate impression is hushed and lovely. Guests walk down a long entrance with vine-covered walls and are greeted with a free welcome drink and cool towel in the open-air lobby. That calming first impression carries throughout the property, and the open-air restaurant overlooks the lawns and trees, featuring wood-beamed ceilings, wood furnishings, and Balinese carvings and statuary. There are a few areas for guests to hang out -- the tranquil pools, lovely gardens, and mostly well-liked restaurant -- but the hotel's central Legian location means most guests are out enjoying the sights. The Astagina primarily draws couples, particularly Australians, to its pools, spa, and location not far from the beach. Families benefit from the large suites and villas.
