Picking a hotel in the maze of streets and establishments on offer in the Legian area of Bali is not an easy task. I was actually lucky, during my Internet search, to bump into GrandMas Plus Hotel Legian website.
GrandMas is a chain of hotels run by a young and dynamic Balinese fellow who is implementing his artistic and innovating mind into boutique style establishments in the south of the holiday island of Bali.
Upon my evening arrival, I was immediately impressed by the vernonia climber vines that suspend from above the pergola. What a great idea for a façade, I thought, as I realized the hotel location was right in the center of Legian. This leafy look, with vernonia that drape hotel windows, is an immediate welcome.
But the real masterpiece of this surreal place is the amazingly lush courtyard past the lobby area, which boasts a mini garden as centerpiece. As it was dark already, the effect the of the lights illuminating the greenery and the balconies above was simply stunning.
My room, one of 111 nicely decorated double, twin and triple rooms spread out on four levels, was small and cozy, with great wall decorations and designers elongated windows. Rooms are the perfect size and have all the necessary amenities like work desk, safe deposit box, flat screen TV with satellite channels, tea and coffee facilities, refrigerator, and a bathroom with shower and toiletries. But the highlight of the night was the great sleep I managed to have in the room’s exclusive Healthy Bed™ with microfiber pillows. Priceless.
The following morning, I sat at a table in the courtyard and had a lovely breakfast of traditional Balinese Ayam Betutu chicken, while marveling at the greenery, this time bright and drenched in sunlight. It was there that I met with Hotel Manager Mr Gede and Corporate Sales and Marketing Ms Dewi, a young, smiling couple who reflected the fresh feel of the GrandMas Plus Hotel Legian.
Lots of information surfaced during our conversation over coffee, including a short history of the GrandMas group and their collection of hotels in Legian, Seminyak and Bali Airport, and how the group has invested money and efforts to make these venues a boutique choice for happy visitors from all corners of the world. I congratulated Gede and Dewi for the great establishment, said goodbye to them, and prepared myself for the exploration of the beautiful island of Bali!
