Arriving at the W on a business trip my first thought was "and we're expected to work here..?"

The W in Bali is probably the most gorgeous, well-managed hotel I've stayed at on the island, with well-designed amazing facilities, interesting restaurants and a lively bar that actually holds up the reputation of the W as an exciting party destination.

While it is pricier than many other hotels in Seminyak, one can easily see the difference in the quality. My room was very comfortable, very large and very well appointed, the condition immaculate with all the modern amenities you would expect from a W hotel. The open concept bath was a marvel, with well-chosen quality toiletries offered in abundance. Even at a higher price point, I felt that the W definitely offered great value in return.

The room and on-ground service staff were wonderful, friendly and proactive in meeting every need. You will be served very well. You will be pampered.

If you're looking for a fun, exciting and stylish modern hotel, the W definitely lives up to its reputation. An excellent choice for couples and groups looking to indulge in luxurious surroundings. Do not bring your kids. Be selfish and enjoy.

(On a side note I did manage to get work done, while looking enviously out at the other guests laughing and sipping cocktails by the pool. Overall they were having an amazing experience.)

I travelled with two friends, so three of us all up. We booked into the three bedroom villa. Staying here was almost like a fantasy. The garden was a masterpiece, an absolute landscape. The 90 metre pool was divine for a paddle. The entire outside setup was ideal. We had friends in Bali as well, whom visited us at the hotel. We entertained with the hotel chef whom with us made a menu, and catered at our room with the BBQ.

The living areas were stunning, watching the sunset from the lounge room was beautiful. We each had our own room which was great. All the rooms had LED TV's, and were sooooo comfortable.

The attention to detail is comforting, the hotel is nothing but accommodating and no request is to much.

Food was divine as well!

I recommend this hotel whole-heartidly and enjoyed the 7 nights here. It was heaven in Bali.

Room Tip: Villas are the way to go!

Absolutely loved this resort, it's just like all the other W resorts in the world, very modern with excellent service. We stayed in the Wonderful ocean view room, which was fantastic, such beautiful views and quite spacious. I've stayed at many resorts on the island and this is defiantly my favourite, so much so my partner and I will be getting married at the W next june :) Looking forward to my next stay there.

Currently spending six nights at the W, and have to comment on the W brand. The hotel is only 2 years old and as you would expect with a five star property it has all the amenities, but W just seem to do it better. Their attention to detail, customer focus, quality services makes me a W convert; I just can't get enough! It's all in the W detail. How the staff are trained to remember your name, recommend food, anticipate your needs is first class. I must congratulate Michael the food and beverage manager on a job well done.
Finally, I should comment on Dino, the recently promoted customer relations staffer, who's role it is to help guest get the most enjoyment from there stay. Well done W.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the main pool area, it's quieter.

This is a tough one to rate as it covers both ends of the spectrum.

On the plus side the design is intelligent, trendy and cool. The room layout and view is by far the best i've experienced in Bali, really top marks to the architect here. The food is superb and the delicatessen deserve a tv show on their own.

The negatives. The music from the bar plays until 11pm and not 8pm as they tell you. It's basically a hard rock cafe with impeccable design and definitely NOT a retreat, so forgive me for being bemused when the duty manager informed me "This is a music hotel", i had no idea. The music isn't even a sundowner, it's more of a headache with a heart attack thrown in to the 'music' for good measure. When i called down to ask when it would finish she sounded annoyed at my ignorance to this 'well known' fact and then claimed that someone had walked past my floor and heard nothing, hmmm.....

It's so bizarre as the place is a real gem, the bar was pretty much empty so i am dumbfounded as to why they feel the need to play this music for so long, so loud and until so late.

For what you pay it is not good, the music ruins the most tranquil of settings and for what you charge it is just annoying really.

If they could only find the volume button, this would be a 5* review.

Room Tip: ocean facing and watch the sunset

Hello NickyO,

Thank you for your constructive feedback on your stay with us.

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your experience. W Retreat and Spa Bali is definitely different from every other hotel on the island, our brand passions points are Music, Fashion and Design and W does offer a very different experience to that of traditional hotels.

I am disappointed to hear that your complaint was not dealt with in the correct manner and I shall look into this. Should you wish to return to W Bali please do reach out to me so that I can personally oversee your stay.

All the best,

Craig Seaward

Wow, the level of luxury at the W is at another level, but it does mean that you don't always realize you are in Bali. This hotel is not traditional Balinese, but that is what I like about it. You still get that amazing service from the Indonesian staff that you are so used to in Bali but combined with the modern decor you are in a very special location. The pool area is an amazing place to lie on a daybed watching the sunset with a cocktail whilst listening to the cool tunes drifting over from woo bar. Great food and nothing is too much travel for the staff. The garden rooms are nice and quiet.

Room Tip: Garden rooms are nice and quiet.
