“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Spent 3 nights here whilst in bali for a friends wedding. Loved the resort, great design, wonderful staff, amazing food. Also one of the best bar/clubs on the island in the woobar, although we didn't get to appreciate it fully during our short stay. We stayed in a garden room and I was happy they didn't overlook the pool and bar area as I can see how the ocean view rooms might be a bit noisy. The minibar is super expensive by Indonesian standards and even though we knew this didn't go to the supermarket about 2 minutes away until our last night. I would advise going as soon as your get there. Get the buggy to the exit, turn right and walk about 100 metres, it's that easy!

Also had an amazing massage at the spa while we were there. Overall a great luxury resort for younger people.

Just spent 3 nights at the W, was a very good long weekend, the rooms are excellently equipped with the usual sweet sleeper which are fantastic. The amenities they have are all you Need.. Nice coffee, tea and a great mini bar.
The rooms have Bose system but they are not compatible with iPhone 5 but this was no issue as I had my iPod.
The hotel sits right on the beach and has amazing sunsets at the bar, the bar is really funky with fab beds and sofas along with beanbags to relax on as well as having a great DJ who moves downstairs to the nightclub at weekends to carry on the great music and drinks

The 2 restaurants that we ate in we're excellent, fire was fab and the exec chef was on hand to explain all dishes, quality of food was fab.

The location of the hotel is enough away from the madness of seminyak but close enough if you life........

Service at the W is superior to most hotels and all staff are friendly and amenable nothing is to much trouble

Look forward to heading back soon

If you are looking for a lush setting away from the crowds in the hip neighbourhood of Seminyak where traditional Balinese hospitality spoils you, look no further. I stayed at the W Retreat and Spa Bali, Seminyak, for 2 nights, and I did not want to leave.

I stayed in an ocean facing room with a beautiful set up, with an ensuite bathroom that appeared to have leaped off the pages of the latest architecture magazine. Not only could I see the ocean clearly from the balcony in my room, I literally woke up and fell asleep to the sound of waves. The bathroom has a separate shower area complete with a big bathtub (I mean BIG), with a rooftop that allows sunlight to stream in. The bed was comfortable and there is a lounge area with a couch and lounge chair and sweets on the coffee table that they top up everyday. My room was spotless and it comes with a surround Bose sound system, and iPod dock, a coded safe and the usual W amenities. This is luxurious comfort at its best.

The hotel itself is located on a secluded property, hidden away from the main part of Seminyak, but still close enough for you to access a wide variety of swanky cafes easily. A garden path lined with overhanging trees in an arch leads you from the subtle entrance down to the main lobby of the hotel, and because of the distance buggies are available to transport you. Alternatively it is a pleasant 10 minute walk if you are not in a hurry. Taxis are plentiful at the entrance, where there is always a hotel staff directing traffic and organising transport for guests. There is both local and a wide variety of international cuisine on offer at nearby restaurants and cafes, and a good selection of boutique shops.

The service at the hotel is, as with most W hotels, top notch and the staff are genuinely friendly and helpful. The decor is of a high standard and well thought out, with excellent indoor/outdoor flow and low key house music in the background 24/7. A highlight of this hotel is the pool area, which is extensive and stretches out to its private beachfront. There are several pools laid out in a well designed area, with colourful bean bags, lounge chairs and chick double daybeds with overhead covers if you choose to stay out of the sun. Laid out like a rice field, the area allows you direct access to the beach and the sunsets are not bad either!

The gym is small but well equipped for a basic workout, with the latest TRX Suspension equipment. The food at the restaurant is fresh and well prepared, but a tad on the pricey side. Overall, if you are looking for a chic, stylish beach getaway, this is the place to be. Check your worries at the door and be prepared to relax and unwind. The only catch is that you may not want to leave.

Room Tip: Try to get an ocean facing room to complete your beach paradise getaway. Waking up to the waves cra...

We booked a 2 bedroom villa with private pool for 2 adults and 1 child(13 year old)

The stay was lovely, the time just flew and I have to say that they have maintained the standards of W resort group.

The service was next to perfect, the restaurants were serving amazing food, my niece had the best time as she found food to her liking, which as been difficult lately.

the only problem i had was the mosquitoes, that was something the hotel could not do enough for me, other than that, it was perfect.

It was a complete luxury staying in this hotel. The room was huge with excellent amenities in it. Bed were super comfy and the bathroom was huge! The staffs are really friendly and helpful. They accomodate all our needs fastly. Pools are great. The beach is beautiful, unfortunately you can't swim there (or can but swim at your own risk as there is no lifeguard there). The best thing of this hotel was the breakfast on FIRE! Got many choices of excellent food there. Too lazy to walk to get some food? You can order an ala carte menu there! Overall this was an amazing hotel. Highly recommended

We ended our trip to Bali with a beautiful stay at the W. We initially started with an ocean view room but decided to treat ourselves to an upgrade and moved to a beautiful private villa. It was truly spectacular with our own private pool and spacious room and bath.
They treated us to lovely martinis for our honeymoon which was very nice and the staff were always kind and professional. The restaurants were high quality and we thoroughly enjoyed the tasty breakfast buffet - we preferred the Starfish Blue as it had an ocean view.

Certainly this resort is more expensive than other places we stayed but we loved it and we're looking forward to returning here for an anniversary in the near future.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a villa if it's within budget. Book online for deals if possible.

It's so different with other resorts in Bali. It's much more stylish than what you think! Staffs there are very friendly and always helpful. The food in FIRE at very good, esp the breakfast buffet which give you many choices other than only fried eggs!
