A new Bali resort offers bargain introductory rates

A brand new luxury hotel in Bali for around $80 per couple per night, including all taxes? 

Usually if something something sounds too good to be true that means it is too good to be true, but this offer comes from the respected Accor group, so I am passing on the info without having reviewed the hotel. 


Mercure Bali Legian is the largest four-star hotel in Legian Kelod and opens for business on December 7 with an opening rate of 888,000 IDR per night per room, including 21% taxes

That's around $80 per couple per night at current exchange rates, making the first night virtually free following the abolition of the absurd rip-off that was the Visa on Arrival scheme for Australians. 

The eco-friendly Mercure is set one block back from the quiet end of Legian beach, but in the heart of the boutiques, markets, restaurants, bars and warungs that make the area so popular. 

The hotel features natural timber finishes, open-air terraces, an infinity pool deck and bar on the fourth floor and a large pool area outside Ancak restaurant.

Some of the 321 rooms have their own private plunge pools while others come with over-sized decks overlooking either the lobby sculpture or pool area.

Upgrade to a Deluxe room for only 200,000 IDR (around $20 at current exchange rates) during the opening special period and get a room with large private balcony.

The hotel also offers free wi-fi, a fitness centre, kids club, spa and business centre and each room has international power sockets, air conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities and in-room safe.

There is a free hop on-hop off shuttle service to key Bali drop-off points.

Rooms cost from 888,000 IDR or with breakfast for two for 908.000 IDR. I'm told the prices are low because the hotel is not yet on the Accor booking system and is being promoted largely by social media and word of mouth.  

For special pre-opening “Mates Rates” that can be booked until March 31, 2015, email directly to Reservation@mercurebalilegian.com

As an exclusive offer to the first 100 Australians that book this “Mates Rate” they will get a free 20-minute Balinese massage or a foot massage in the Lavare Spa. 

Bookings can be made from now until March 31 for travel until June 2015 with some black-out dates over Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
