Which one? Why?
For me it would be SBR as it has a much more Balinese feel. The W feels like something you would find in Florida in my opinion.
I’m sure you will have a great experience at either but if you are travelling that far it might be nice to get something different than what you can easily get at home.
Hmmm think I might be commenting on the Royal Seminyak Beach Resort. Having not been through The Seminyak I can’t really comment but from the outside it does still seem to have more Balinese appeal than the W which is quite “concrete” in my opinion.
I mainly chose the W because I’m used to it. I’ve stayed at several in different countries and they were consistent. Basically, just going with what I know especially since I have read water can be an issue and I know just in general that food is sometimes an issue when you visit other countries as it relates to stomach issues, but I am definitely open to others.
Unless you like ultra modern, could-be-anwhere over priced hotels don't stay at the W. Look at more traditional hotels, the Royal Beach is great value and as a previous person said the Oberoi is also great. Both built about the same time and have huge gardens
