I stayed at W Bali for 5 nights, couple of months back, and was really pleased with the overall experience at W. My husband and I booked the pool villa which was fantastic - I would recommend it if you're looking for something privacy and quiet surroundings. Although the pool area in the villa gets too dark for a night swim. Breakfast was included in the package, but by day 3, I was looking for more variety. The weekdays were nice especially because there weren't as many guests around, but by the time Friday and Saturday came, it was packed. The service staff at the hotel was great - very attentive. The location of the hotel was good, with Potato Head Beach Club a mere 5min walk from the hotel if you walk by the beach. Would recommend cabbing it everywhere else, as the main streets outside the hotel are rather narrow .

Room Tip: Go for the pool villa if you're looking for something privacy and quiet surroundings.

Stayed at the Marvelous 1BR Pool Villa for two nights, Villa 11. The privacy is excellent, even when you are tanning by the private pool. The choice of the size of the room and pool is perfect, the layout is well thought, and the Bose sound system extends from inside the room to the outdoor, there are two outdoor speakers that you can remote control so you wont miss a beat when tanning.

Choice of complimentary amenities are great, includes bottled water, milk (this is great), very fast WiFi (there is a WiFi router in every room), free entry to weekend events at the WooBar, and golf buggy pickup service to and from the villa (the villas are pretty far away from the main lobby area).

The service is also excellent, the talents (staff) are very friendly in answering all sorts of questions, and can provide almost anything you request, and deliver to your villa. All the staff are very energetic in engaging with the guests, which is what I loved the most about the W hotels worldwide.

On the downside though, if the neighboring villa residents play music from the outside speakers too loudly, the noise easily penetrates into the rooms; and secondly, the food in their restaurants are mediocre (which is expected across W hotels worldwide), so avoid their restaurants if you can, for the same price to pay, there are restaurants nearby (and also by the Seminyak Square area) which give much more WOW experience.

Suggestions to the management: could use larger bottle for the complimentary water. We requested many times for water, and they always come in a smallish bottle. For guests like us who require more water, probably you could allow us to choose larger bottle (500cc or more). This could save your time delivering, and also could be more environmentally friendly.

Checked in for 3 nights, and enjoyed it. The hotels has 2 extremely nice restaurant (Fire and Starfish Bloo). I had seafood pizza in 'Fire' and Hot Stone Cod Fish in "Starfish Bloo", it a unique and fantastic experience. The hotel is located in the heart of Seminyak and restaurants and spas are nearby, some are even in walking distance. At night with clear skies, star-glazing beside the pool is an amazing experience. Lovely.

Room Tip: Choose the room facing the swimming pool.

I stayed 4 nights in the W during my stay in Bali. The hotel is absolutely wonderful. Nice staf, especially the guys who are working at the pool. Very attentive and friendly. The hotel is what you expect in this price range, nice rooms, good facilities etc. We would definitely come back although we kept quit a negative flavor cause of the following:

A big con: the price for water at the pool. I stayed in many similar hotels like, Anantara, Marriot, Shangri-La etc were bottles water were given complimentary (especially in those destinations where temperatures easily rise above 30c). Even when the choice of the management is to put a price on water please offer this at normal prices. Now the cheapest option was a bottle of 750 ML for EUR 7,50. Absolutely ridiculous. Please change this and the W is definitely THE hotel to go to!

To say that this resort is magnificent does not seem to do it justice. The architecture is 6 star Avant-garde. The attention to detail absolutely everywhere was unbelievable. The layout and the views looking over the pool to the ocean is breathtaking. The Roo Bar is a great (expensive) place for afternoon drinks. The staff are very well trained, polite and ultra willing to be helpful. But don't come here if you want a quite holiday, because quiet it ain’t. This is a resort for the young and those who like plenty of noise. There were kids galore running wild around the pool (it was the start of school hols, so to be expected) and there are miniature mushroom looking speakers positioned all around the pool, so there was no escaping the noise. Here are some random complaints in no particular order – For some reason they have paved about a third of the very long driveway in the roughest, most uncomfortable stones on the planet. Please W, rip them up and put a smooth surface in before you have to have a resident chiropractic in the place. Why can’t these places put a filtration system in so that you can brush your teeth at least without having a bottle of filtered water beside the sink ? We have now just arrived for part 2 of our stay at the Legian, also at Seminyak. The quiet and tranquillity of the place has struck an immediate chord. Yes, I can recommend the W, and we will return to W Bali and I am sure elsewhere in our travels, but be warned, it is for the racy part of your holiday. You may need a holiday when you leave it !

From the moment that we arrived, the service we received by all the staff at the W was outstanding, staff were always polite and helpful. My husband and I stayed in a 1 bedroom villa with pool and it didnt disappoint, every detail taken care of, from the sun lounges to day bed and the landscaping, it was all beautiful - plus with speakers outside we could plug in an ipod and listen to music too. Inside the villa, it was spacious and clean, the bathroom was enormous (by my standards!) and we actually had space to put 2 suitcases away and put most of our clothes away too. The bed was super comfy and we were able to request a firmer pillow. The main pool area of the W was amazing and we divided our time between the villa and the main pool area, we never had an trouble getting a sunbed. And last not but least, the breakfast buffet.... the best I have ever seen in my travels, the variety from traditional continental offerings to hot breakfast, eggs any way, french toast, pancakes and then a huge selection of traditional foods. The location of the W is also fantastic, walking distance to a lot of Seminyak which suited us, as I wasnt keen on sitting in a taxi all the time. Would love to stay at the W again one day!!
