“seaview spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

This is a spectacular hotel for couples who want to be left alone. The steam room/spa would have to be the best in Bali all new and appealing to the eye with gentle soft colours. Set away from the hotel with lovely long grasses to look at from the spa pool.Gym is great and always open.
Staff round pool are great and bring little things to try -sorbet on a stick for example. Nothing too much trouble. Drinks/food are dear but it is a 5 star place. The Sunday seafood smorgasboard is brilliant.
Breakfast was really good with great choices.

The room is so modern with all the mod cons and balcony is great.

Trolley runs you up to the road if you need supplies from the 7/11 on the street about 500m walk otherwise.

Only negative is people walking in off the beach who can pay to use facilities.

Room Tip: get on the top floor looking out to sea

It's modern contemporary hotel in a premium location of south Bali, Seminyak. The room was excellent, the hotel design was amazing. The breakfast was also perfect. really worth the money. It's perfect for you who want to find a decent hotel in a moderate crowd area.

Have loved W Hotels for many years and decided to finally try W Bali. Must admit it exceeded my wishes and expectations in every way. From the team members to the rooms to the pool to the spa.

When you stay at W, you know you are going to have the music, the fashion and the design so be prepared for it. The fusion of all three is fantastic at this retreat.

Interesting mix of guests....families, couples, singles and everyone seemed to be having a great time together although I still believe W is perhaps not the best place to take kids wanting a true family vacation.

Fantastic, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone considering a Bali escape in great location.

Room Tip: The skylights on the 4/5th floors of the main building add wonderful light into the rooms

Brought my partner to Bali for the first time and thought the best way to ease her into the hustle and bustle of Bali would be to stay at the W Seminyak. We were picked up from the airport with no hassle's what so ever, greeted and told to relax and unwind upon arrival at the resort. After an easy check in, we were driven to our 1 bedroom villa (#5) and told all about the resort and surrounding areas from the lovely staff. We had room service, ate at the 2 restaurants, had sunset drinks at the Woo bar, had massages, got advice on what to do in Seminyak, got the Whatever/Whenever service to arrange our transport from Seminyak to Sanur then to organize our transport/acomm for the lovely island of Lembongan, you name it we got the W to do it. Every staff member was happy, helpful and most importantly relaxed and calm in their demeanour. We only spent 3 nights at the W as we spent most of our time in Lembongan, if you have to stay in Seminyak for a short time, stay here! The privacy of the 1 bedroom villa is amazing and everything you would expect from a big hotel you get, maybe more.

Room Tip: Spend the extra and get the 1 bedroom pool villa, its totally worth it. Its quite/private and as soo...

There's no kids club and beach not swimable. This resort had lots of kids staying during our time. We didn't know the W brand was so family friendly. Fine with us as we had a child too! The resort does cater for kids 1) there's daily kids activities at set times eg sand castle making, giant Jenga / connect 4 to name a few 2) they have kids menu 3) I felt the pool was more suited to kids than adults as most parts weren't that deep. Although a tiered pool, no one really swam in the top 2 tiers since pebbles lined the base - looked more like a pond or maybe it was a pond, so bottom tier or biggest pool was busy with kids (and adults trying to relax in a tranquil? environment ) 4) the pool counter had swim noodles, sand castle equipment, and big floating bean bags were in the pool, 5) the resort had many quirky scultpures/ displays around that was a novelty for all ages. 6) lots of shaded areas and canopy (no charge unlike some resorts)

If are looking for an inside and outside setting that wows, a place that can still offer fun to your kids without a kids club or Waterslides, has good food and service, then this is probably it. We've tried a few luxury resorts in Bali but the quirkiness of small touches around the resort, bold colours around the pool, and tasteful contemporary style makes this resort a memorable experience compared to other highend resorts. This is what makes the W unique to other resorts in Bali. It's not another "Balinese style luxury resort" or another "contemporary style hotel" which is a bit boring for us now. other than the food and staff, I can't think of anything Balinese about it.

Besides lots of kids, there was also lots of outside tourists wandering around main pool area to check out the resort and take photos. Due to this, the main pool area wasn't as tranquil as we had hoped. Deck chairs filled most spaces around the pool and people everywhere so the whole ambience actually felt busy and crowded during our stay. For this reason I take away 1 star.

Room Tip: Away from the woo bar as music goes on till 10pm.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the W for 4 nights after staying in other areas of the island and defiantly enjoyed it the most. Resort was perfect, rooms very beautiful & the beach located in front of the resort was super secluded compared to other beaches. Gnarly, sucky little beach break in front too :) Service was not the greatest but really didn't rely on it too much. overall was epic, cheers (we travelled in Sep 2012 but the dates don't go back that far!)

Room Tip: try and get one upstairs beach side, better views

Came to bali as our second honeymoon. We took a one bedroom villa. Lucky for us to get one that was near to the lobby so we did not need the buggy service every time we wanted to leave the room or back, otherwise it can be quite troublesome. The spa was quite difficult for us to book for treatment for a couple at the same time. Anyway, apart from that, everything was amazing here at W, the service, the room, the food, the pool. I cannot imagine staying at any other place in Bali next time. Can't wait to be back.
