The Laguna: The Lowdown

Boasting seven lagoon pools, 287 guestrooms, suites and luxury villas, its own temple and award-winning restaurants and bars, The Laguna’s design imitates its beautiful tropical surroundings and echoes the local traditions of Balinese culture.

Step outside of the resort, and you will find the nearby Nusa Dua beach, the renowned Uluwatu Temple and the Garuda Wisnu Kencana cultural park. In 2022, The Laguna experienced a full-scale transformational renovation, its first after 30 years of distinctive service.

The Laguna: The Rooms

The new design of the rooms is inspired by the collective stories and traditions of Bali, as well as nautical influences from the resort’s seven lagoons. The Laguna has incorporated the Balinese ‘sulaman’ embroidered headboard as the rooms’ central design feature, choosing colours and materials that echo the art, while the story of the lagoon and the nautical experiences around it are also celebrated with rope and leather detailing and a bespoke selection of lamps and shiplap walls.

Woven keben baskets, typically used to carry offerings at temples, and low-rise dulang tables that carry colourful spreads of local tropical fruits feature alongside specially commissioned artwork pays tribute to the island’s arts and crafts. The rooms all offer unique advantages such as private balconies, immediate access to pools, private pools and large living spaces.
