Pullman Bali Legian has a really nice rooftop infinity pool where you can just chill and relax while watching the sunset.

Food

Since majority of the population are Hindu, pork is very much available in the entire island.  There are a lot of western restaurants as well including Hard Rock Cafe, Starbucks, Mcdonalds and KFC.

Trasportation

Relax

GET A MASSAGE! Spas and massage places are everywhere in bali.  Streetside parlours offer cheap foot and whole body massages while five-star and luxury spas come with a heavier price tag.

Shop

Tourists looking for native handicrafts and wood furniture would fall in love with all that Bali has to offer. There are specific areas that specialise in wood statues, silvercraft, egg painting and many more. So, just check with your tour coordinator on where to find the best bargains in town.
