Villa Baliana is superbly situated in the area named Legian, one of the famous tourist location around Seminyak and Kuta. Only 25 minutes drive from Bali's international airport and close to shops, boutiques, fine dine restaurants, cafes to casuals warungs, only minutes walk to reach the famous Legian beach and within 5 minutes easy walk to Kumala Pantai Hotel in Legian.
Legian stretches between Jalan Melasti and Jalan Arjuna (ex. Double Six Rd.) and is what may be described as the cosmopolitan area of Bali.
The beauty of Legian is the range of accommodation that is on offer virtually there is something for everyone. The beachfront hotels are really beachfront and most have their pools towards the beach areas or large lawn areas covered by trees overlooking the beach. It is usually not necessary to be a patron of the Hotel to use these facilities - just ask.
The restaurants are many and varied and some of Bali's best can be found here. The shopping is more boutique style. It is best to wander the side streets and browse for many items including casual wear and beach fashions, antiques, handicrafts and souvenirs. There are still hawkers here but unlike Kuta, Legian is a much more relaxed atmosphere.
The nightclubs and bars in this area come alive on particular nights and it is the best place to go if you want to catch some of the excellent local bands or if you are into 90’s dance music.
It is always nice to walk along the wide beach in the late afternoon, wander past the endless soccer games and tourists setting up cameras to catch the magic sunset.
The beach is wide in Legian but it is not pure white. Like most beaches in Bali it has a slight greyish tinge caused by volcanic silica. A walk along Legian beach is one of the most colorful and vibrant beach walks in Bali. A typical day on the beach will include vendors, masseuses, beach boys, high waves and strong currents.
