Rated 3 out of 5 by standards101 Nice property staff sub par
The rooms, common areas and pools are terrific, the staff are lackadaisical in their approach and generally not what one expects in a property of this type. The butler service, while exciting in theory, fails in execution. Put coffee and tea makers in the rooms, and stop wasting your guests' time with ordering these things, which inevitably arrive cold, 20 minutes after ordering. Oh, and answer the phone when we ring! Otherwise a nice place, no interruptions and never felt crowded. Get some staff trained in customer service and you'll be fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dax19 The Service Did not live up to Starwood reputation
I am currently still staying in this hotel when I write this review.
On the second day, which is today, I came back to the hotel room (103) with the floor still dirty, bathroom amenities not restocked, dirty glasses not replaced. I called to the butler and he reacted fast enough to remedy everything. Then somehow I casually asked what type of room is 103. I was informed that it is a Deluxe Lagoon Access. Then I told the front desk, something must be wrong because I booked for a Deluxe Studio Lagoon Access which is a bigger and more pricey room type. He promised to have his duty manager called me back in 5 minutes and I have been waiting for more than 1 hour. My conclusion is that this hotel does not reflect a Starwood reputation of preferred guest treatment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ray1983 Hotel is very good, but the buffet was poor
everything is resort is wonderful, pool is nice, beach is good, room is comfort. we had a buffet as dinner, it cost about 40USD per person and called sea food buffet, however, infact, in the buffet you get only one glass of wine or soft drink, only ice water is free and ok to refill. this is the only buffet that cannot provide enough drinks i have ever had. regarding the seafood part, there were only some small prawn, two kind of fish which are not good, octopus needs to be order seperately, they do not BBQ this without order, and the staff that doing the BBQ were not friendly at all. in all there are not much seafood you could have,when you order anything from them, it seems you are take stuff from their pocket. the all other stuff like salmon, oyster, etc, are not included in the buffet! so they cactually cannot call it a sea food buffet. the buffet was totally unworthy! bad experience at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Driz Lovely family start to Bali adventure.
We chose the Laguna for our first night in Bali as it was a short distance from the airport. The grounds were beautiful and all the staff were warm and attentive. The restaurant offered a wonderful setting by the sea with many fine choices for our adult family and the bar with live harmonies was just as charming. The spa staff welcomed us with an impromptu request for massages and the ice cream bar was a great treat. Our daughter and her husband were very happy with the fitness center and the pools were beautiful leading to the ocean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mteps A Magical Experience
When we wandered 30 mins along the Nusa Dua beach in both directions of the Laguna Resort,we were satisfied and pleased that we had made the best decision with our choice of resort in Bali. The setting was ideal, inside the wall of Nusa Dua away from all the hustle and bustle but close enough to the Bali collection. The gardens and pools surrounding the hotel are spectacular. The staff are very friendly and accommodating Our only complaint was the cost of the laundry and the extras in the hotel.
Thank you for a memorable stay

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lien does not understand check in check out
Stayed few nights, with check in and check out. Room was great, no plus for spg gold except platinum which is quite a disappointment. Staff does not understand check in and check out, they forcefully combine the nights stay into one booking despite being requested to be checked out. At the end lose spg points, lose cashback. and lose my stay. Very great disappointment.
Breakfast buffet was great, dinner buffet can be improved, seafood menu is kind of lacking.
Butler and housekeeping are great. Pool, spa and beach staff were great. Front desk have room for improvement.
There is one promotions on guest room for spa which we took but was not recognized by the spa which is weird. Took 15 min delay upon check out to resolve this which cause delay back to airport.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dissappointed2013 Overpriced with poor QC
I have stayed at this hotel many times over the last 5 years. Normally this was a desired destination for our vacations in Bali. But this last stay we found there was a significant decline in quality of the food, condition of the room, and staff hygiene with regards to food preparation. While dinning at both restaurants, we observed the kitchen staff not wearing gloves, dipping fingers into pots and then licking their fingers and continuing to handle the food. We observed cooks and food handlers sneezing and wiping their nose with their bare hands and then touching food.
The overall quality of the food and the hotel certainly does not meet the Luxury Collection I am accustom to.
Overall I would not recommend this hotel. This was our last trip to the Sheraton Laguna.

the hotel has everything you need, great staff, great swimming pools, great spa and workout facility and very good food. this only thing that I did not like was the price of mixed drinks and wine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Saspab Very good but...
Hard to fault the excellent staff....smiles all round and nothing is too much trouble for them...the only gripe in what is a great set up is the slightly shabby appearance of the rooms ie damp stains scratch marks dents etc. it certainly didn't ruin the holiday but the attention to detail is wanting

Rated 5 out of 5 by Teekay Surreal
This hotel is really pretty, the lagoons and the oceanfront incredibly clean and tranquil (kudos to the hotel staff for keeping it so well-maintained!) We found the food surprisingly good for this place, esp as other standalone restaurants are a little far and confusing (and similarly priced!). Do not miss out the heavenly icecreams at CornerStone Deli - absolute steal at $3/scoop. The rooms could be bigger, esp the bathroom (bathtub!) but we're not really complaining. The bed is comfortable, but we recommend not sleeping in too much (sleep it on the beach front chairs, if you must). Excellent recognition and instant offers for SPG guests too. I wish they had a better DVD collection though - the conceirge is a bit clueless in general, even though they try to be helpful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marina2626 Very average, definitely not Luxury
The check-in took too long and the receptionist haven't given information on Wi-Fi in the rooms and breakfast. The room doesn't have tea-coffee amenities. Not kids friendly - my 10 y.o. son was not allowed in the gym for simple exercises. No kids facilities. The kids menu is unedible - we ordered pasta which was too spicy even for adults. Generally food is not good. I did go to SPA, asked for strong massage, they did very gentle one - so it was just another waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by spgNoob Like it's name.. A luxurious laguna
The staff at the hotel are very very friendly and try to accommodate all your requests.
Rooms are big, spacious and clean. Though maybe a slight refurbish or rejuvenation due to age would make the room and bathroom better.
As for it being a hotel on a beautiful island paradise, the pools and beach do just that.
It's location is slightly further away from the "hot spots" in Bali, however I feel the security in Nusa Dua (the area where the hotel is located) is tighter and much safer compared to the other areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hk12 A resort for leisure % relaxation
The Laguna is a tranquil resort with huge lagoon pools . Although occupancy rate was very high, it seemed that there were less people in the resort, in other words, the resort very quiet and of course provide your privacy to enjoy your time there. Breakfast buffet very nice & good taste. Staffs always greet guest with smiles.Some/ most-parts of the resort's outdoor areas are quite shady, (therefore) it was so nice to spend most of time at beachfront cabana ! and so did at sunbed even near the lagoon pools

Rated 5 out of 5 by mal27 An outstanding holiday hotel
the upgrade to a suite made the room exceptional but we really missed the lagoon view. room 110 has passing traffic and no privacy. But everything else made our stay excellent. Suggestions from us are for the team to examine food quality(temperature) at Cornerstore Deli but in all other restuarants quality and service was excellent.Beach, pool, lagoon were always looked after and lounges etc are very comfortable. We have visited Bali more than 20 times but never before stayed at Laguns. WE WILL RETURN

its a really amazing hotel with great views and welcoming staff a really excellent spa and many places to swim and dine.. the butler service was excellent too especially mr prapto .. i disliked the fact that the restaurants dont serve "Halal" food and i think this should be condidered for muslim visitors and the beach chairs are always full

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cassie13 Idyllic sanctuary
My husband and I had an outstanding stay at this property. Every staff member was gracious and attentive and clearly strives for excellence. There are many areas for outdoor privacy, married beautifully into the lagoon setting.
A particular highlight was the dining experience at the Amana restaurant, and this was in a large part due to "Wira", a wonderfully efficient and enthusiastic waitperson. The SPA centre is completely beautiful and the lovely and able Astrid is perfect in her role there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by debjef As good as we hoped for
Lovely hotel - best we saw in Nusa Dua. We upgraded to a lagoon access studio as we were staying 13 nights, which was worth the extra. Beautiful grounds and pools, lovely people. Really nice atmosphere. Great breakfasts. One big BUT...but the price of wine/alcohol is bordering on the criminal, and certainly caused us to eat out elsewhere in the evening, whereas we would have been happy to stay at the hotel for a few more meals. That was the only drawback but a fairly significant one.

We were here on a family trip to for over a week - besides an incredible Bali experience, the resort was awesome - pool, SPA, wonderful and friendly staff, great beach walk, staff did a wonderful job at check in, during the stay, good onsite restaurants, got upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite courtesy my ambassador, loved the area, beach, beachwalk, food - everything was good, highly recommended in Bali.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Admish2012 Great choice... by us.
My wife and I were toying with returning to the hotel we stayed at previously in Nusa Dua but took a recommendation from my sister to try out The Laguna and we're glad we did.
Fantastic rooms, multiple pools to choose from, great staff, wifi throughout the resort, handy location, nice and quiet (certainly not as insane as Kuta).
The only downer was the buffet meal we had on the first night was not up to scratch and the price of drinks/food around the pool was ridiculously high.

My biggest gripe about the hotel was that it did not have much toddler friendly activities going on. But having said that their pool and lagoon beaches are extremely kid-friendly. The food was good and reasonably priced. Highly recommend the gelato at the cafe and the spa. Wonderfully nice staff. The rooms are dated (atleast the one we were in) but well-maintained. If you plan to laze in the beach in luxury and just take it easy and still be wallet-friendly this is the place to

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kevoz Disappointed
Requested a high floor NON smoking room was given floor 2 and smoking room. After complaining was immediately moved to what was first requested. As a SPG member and we have stayed 7 months before in Laguna thought you would have known our preferences. Not a brilliant experience as we had to repack and move ourselves. Our fruits never arrived in our room . Asked for prices for our stay sept 2013 only to b emailed a higher price than available on website. So much for loyalty!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Natssant Wasn’t met my expectation
Upon arrival the hotel failed to pick us up from the airport with the limousine we arranged in advance. So we had to ask for help from W hotel staff instead, once we met the staff from Laguna they had denied arranging the limo, as our name wasn’t in the list. He called back and forth with the hotel to make sure we are their guests. This wasted us sometime.
Arrival at the hotel, our booking that had been upgraded to the pool access room as a Gold Member had been downgrade to the original room. The front office manager said sorry many time for those things happened and offered us complimentary breakfast and transfer to the net destination in Ubud.
The property looked a bit tired and really needs some renovation. The restaurant wasn’t that good, breakfast is OK but the seafood buffet offered very limited of choices.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Muumykins Fantastic staff, wonderful pools.
Overall we enjoyed our stay, the best part of resort was the pools, we found a little quiet corner to sunbathe. The room was fine, but bathroom looking a little tired. Why only one sink when there us room for 2? The breakfast buffet was adequate, if a little uninspired, we would have liked to see more choice, after 3 days it became quite boring. Buffet dinner was almost the same as breakfast, we normally don't eat out of resorts on holiday, but did so here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Behnem50y Most unfortunate part of my stay was when i had to say Good-Bye to the Hotel
This was the BEST service of all that i have ever encountered with.
all the way from the very first point of my arrival, with a very pleasant receptionist who checked us In to the bell mans who showed us step by step of the hotel area and things that we should know. to all the staff in the pool, in the bars with their great sense of hospitality makes you feel like Kings and Queens.
I thank all of the staff to make this an amazing and memorable stay for me.
There is nothing that this hotel could possibly need to make a change for good, but just to keep up this great service.
sincere thanks to each and every of the hotel staff special Mr. Purna who made me a great journey, Ms. Putra who Made me feel like home, And finally honor of meeting the great and most hospitalized hotel GM Mr Mark who was present in the hotel lobby and greeting the guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adrian262 Friendly staff and excellent gardens,pools & beach area
We fell in love with The Laguna since our first visit in 2004. Nine vists later it always surprises us with new facilities or new initiatives to improve the guest experience. But above all the single biggest factor in us returning so many times is the staff. Many of the staff have worked at The Laguna since it opened in 1991 - their favourite expression to guests is "welcome home" and that is how we feel when we arrive each time at The Laguna.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tozzie The name is their programm !
The hotel and the beach are one of the nicest places ever seen. Although there are many guests you has the chance to find a quiet place @ the pool area around the whole complex. Staff gives you the feeling as if they all are taking care only on your efforts. You never get the feeling they are stressed or dont like their work. They solve any problem for you 24 hours a day.
If youre interested in comfort in nice surrounding just try this hotel !
