Wishing to stay at a hotel that truly offers Balinese spirit? Try to stay at Legian Village Hotel located on Jalan Padma in Legian, North Kuta. This jasmine-tree hotel provides services for its guests as in their own family with intimacy and sincerity as well as put forwards ethics. Understandably, the employees are genuine Balinese and have an average working experience of 38 to 40 years.
Although each employee has a position and responsibility, in the matter to realize the comfort at the hotel they are always compact. Uniquely, their togetherness and kinship are cultivated through cultural activities, such as ngelawar (preparing Balinese typical menus), majejahitan (preparing oblations) before piodalan or anniversary in the hotel temple and jointly slaughtering pig ahead of Galungan celebration and others.
Legian Village Hotel is located within a strategic area namely about 10 minutes from nightlife spots in Seminyak, 20 minutes to Discovery Shopping Mall and 30 minutes to Ngurah Rai International Airport. “Guests feel convenient to stay repeatedly at Legian Village Hotel. Many of them are repeater guests, and even fanatic to particular room,” said the owner, Agung Sujana.
Every time they come, added Agung Sujana, they always ask for the same room. Moreover, there is repeating guest saying that if one day he dies, he wants to die here because it is the most convenient place for him. “Every repeater guest has its own favorite room. Moreover, he will be willing to reschedule his period of stay if the favorite room is being occupied by other guest,” explained Agung Sujana.
According to him, all the activities are implementation of the Tri Hita Karana teachings that maintains the relationship between human and God, human and fellow humans as well as human and their environment. “Cultural matters and religious rituals become our primary concerns. Honestly, between us and the employees are felt like a family,” he said.
In the management, he still puts forward the teaching concepts of the ancestors. For example, it still maintains the concept of Tri Mandala in the division of hotel area where the Utama Mandala is for holy place, Madya Mandala for residence (hotel room) and Nista Mandala for parking area and swimming pool. “We still apply the teachings of our ancestors in managing this hotel, so it has a different aura,” said the man who is the native to Legian village.
Nevertheless, the hotel facilities are still referring to the international standards and in accordance with the present times. Legian Village Hotel is the first hotel in the Legian tourism area established in 1977 originally having 4 rooms only. In 1983, it was launched into a hotel by the Minister of Home Affairs at that time, Soepardjo Rustam, and the Governor of Bali, Prof. Ida Bagus Mantra, with 12 rooms. “Now, it has 56 rooms equipped with amenities,” he added.
The room category on offer varies, namely Luxury Room, Bungalows, Deluxe Room, Balinese Room, Superior Room, and Standard Room. All the rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, television set, private bathroom with hot and cold shower facilities and free toiletries. Besides, each room is also equipped with a refrigerator and telephone. “Now, there is only one bungalow because six other bungalows have been changed into three-floored Luxury Rooms. Although they are new, traditional Balinese feel and heritage are still felt,” he concluded. (BTN/015)
