a popular place for our hotel guests to unwind and have a great time,” says Panchaud Francois, the gracious and good-natured General Manager of The Legian Bali, one of Seminyak’s most exclusive beachfront resorts. “We’ve attracted Seminyak’s champagne lovers, who have been looking for a relaxing ambiance.”
Panchaud is chatting with Prestige during the launch of Ocean Champagne Bar. The quiet, refined 67-suite luxury resort has certainly brought the neighborhood’s glamour quotient up a notch with the opening of this splendid 36-seater watering hole.
Gone is the more casual Ocean Bar, and in its place is a more illuminated drinking venue with an impressive list of tipples and light bites. Think Cristal, Dom Pérignon, Veuve Clicquot and Billecart Salmon paired with caviars and canapés. The thatched hut comes with tasteful wicker furniture, while daybeds have been placed fronting the ocean for those who want to sip their cocktails while admiring the view.
The new lounge has become one of the resort’s main draws, says Panchaud. Open from 8 a.m. to 12 midnight daily, The Ocean Champagne Bar has become a favorite hub for jazz fans thanks to its Thursday and Sunday live entertainment.
The place is an intimate venue for people looking to unwind and experience a quieter side of Seminyak. “It’s a relaxing atmosphere here, where the sea and music mingle together,” says the GM.

Using award-winning products, the sanctuary offers signature treatments such as massages, body scrubs, and wraps. Guests can also indulge in the resort’s warm and cool indoor plunge pools or spend an hour in their sauna and steam rooms. Sessions in yoga, Pilates, and
