“Simply the best!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Nothing else to add really - the W hotel in Seminyak is simply the best. It's a beautiful hotel (I actually stayed in one of the villas), with excellent food in a good choice of restaurants, and friendly and very competent staff. In fact, a real 5 star holiday destination!!

At a gala in Chicago, IL a year ago, I split a live auction item which included 3 nights at the W in Seminyak. While it sounded great at the time, due to the time commitment and travel time to get to Bali, I would have been inclined to consider it a great donation to a worthy cause. Thank goodness the friend I split it with didn't let me do that as I would have missed the trip of a lifetime. From the minute we got there to the minute we left, we received the best customer service in all aspects of a stay from their smiles as they greeted us curbside to take us directly to our room upon arrival which was ready and adorned with a surprise birthday cake and balloons for me, to remembering our names every where we went, to the whatever/whenever treatment that they truly mean, to the personalized care in helping us plan our daily activities, to the parting gifts and hugs they gave as we ended our stay, it was the people (especially TJ, Omed and Kevin) whom I will remember the most about Bali. They give more than they have and they are happy to do so. If you want to not only have wonderful accommodations, a beautiful view of the beach, excellent cuisine but also new friends for life choose the W.

My stay at W in Seminyak exceeded expectations. The Spectacular room lived up to it's name with only the sound of waves and good house,deep house and electro beats in the background. The little touches- cute frogs in the bathroom, W's mix playing and a birthday cake for my buddy in the room really was amazing. Starfish Blu's staff led by Panji were great. I was really touched they remembered that it was my mate's birthday and kindly gave us free starters and a cake (again) for my friend. The food was superior but the service really made it even more enjoyable. We loved Woobar's backlit wine bottles, the absolutely chilled deck, the lounge, the gardens, the Oasis and of course the spa. Only thing that could be improved was the check-in. Not as seamless as Sheraton Kuta.

Room Tip: Worth the upgrade to spectacular for an ocean view. If you don't fancy listening to the sounds o...

This place makes you feel like a rock star! The entire venue from the driveway to the pool has total wow factor....cocktails and fireworks by the pool, who does not love that. There is one thing I would say negative, no atmosphere, there was not many people there and most were playing on their phones/ipads and no one was really partying....not sure what/why this was the case. But the layout/setup in general was totally out of this world!

We had a wonderful time with my wife at the W. The hotel is 1.5 year old only, the facilities are thus gorgeous including the swimming pool. We liked the tranquility of the area which contrasts greatly with downtown Seminyak (that we found awful).The staff was also very friendly with us.

In a nutshell, I highly recommend this place that is expensive yet worth it.

The hotel is beautiful and clean. The territory is great. It includes a big swimming pool, a nice Woo bar, three restaurants of seafood, european and local menu. Breakfast offers plenty of items every day. We spent our honeymoon in a villa, where we had our own swimming pool, one bedroom and many small thing that made our vacation very pleasant. Shisha is worth tasting in Woo bar. The hotel also offers spa facilities. It is one of the best hotels I have stayed in.

This was our second trip to W" Retreat in the space of 7 months. The experience was so good the first time that we couldn't wait another year to go back. We stayed in the Pool Villa which was once again amazing ! If you are couple , I would highly recommend this accommodation . Every morning we had breakfast at Starfish Bloo and was greeted by the Hostess Dwi. This young lady made our whole experience incredible and the VIP treatment just never stopped coming. She is a true attribute to this resort. The service at W goes beyond your expectations , that said , our luggage never left Australia and we had to go 24hrs with no bags . W followed this from the start to finish to get our bags the following day. This wasn't even the resorts problem yet they made it happen ! The Airline never even gave us a call but W were incredible! To all the staff A massive thank you again. Well done Mr Seaward .

Room Tip: The pool villas are private and relaxing
