“Best beach for a honeymoon”
Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

We came to W and Bali for our honeymoon. We were first taken back at how friendly they were ( the North Americans in us) don't trust at first. They were very caring, the facilities were very clean and the staff was great. It was a nice feeling to see the GM and he speak to you and care about your experience. The staff were here to make sure we had the best honeymoon and they succeeded. I am glad we stayed at the W and not in kuta, very private and close to many cool restaurants

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

We travelled as a group and could not have asked for a more luxurious and relaxing retreat. And this was despite the impossibly high expectations we've had from all the rave reviews we'd read before going!

The staff we met were all extremely helpful, knowledgeable and courteous so much so that we felt right at home straightaway. All the small gestures provided by the hotel were deeply appreciated, especially where the staff came around to provide refreshing lassies, wet towels and mist sprays to all lounging at the pool area during the day. We also had tremendous fun playing with the water guns provided by the staff at the pool area!

Food-wise, we had several meals at Fire, Starfish Bloo and the W Lounge, all of which served great food at reasonable prices. Therefore, one need not venture out of the hotel to have good meals during the stay.

I can think of only one area that can be improved, even though this wasn't really a big issue for us. During our stay, we had to rely on the concierge to make meal reservations and to provide directions / recommendations. However, even though there were two concierge counters, on a couple of occasions one counter was unattended, and we had to wait pretty long before the guests who were there before us were done with their questions. One time we gave up completely because the couple before us were planning a trip outside of the region from scratch with the concierge. That said, the concierge whom we met on various occasions was very helpful and provided excellent recommendations.

Many thanks for the perfect getaway! We'll be back!

From the onset, despite the late check-in, I was pleasantly surprised that my simple request for a nice view led to a free upgrade to a Spectacular Ocean View room. It was the start of what is a really amazing feature of this resort, the people. They really know how to keep you happy. Service ranked 10 out of 10. It couldn't have been better. Typical of W resorts, this is a classy place and you know instantly what you're paying for. The breakfast is pretty spectacular too, as an experience (besides the buffet, the menu has got an interesting and extensive spread), so be sure to tick this box, even for a day. Despite the supremely comfortable, well appointed and spacious rooms, my only gripe is the showers could do with better water pressure.

I had no issue with any noise from WooBar or the waves. It hardly seemed a disturbance. In fact, I liked that the room came with a balcony overlooking the pool and the beach. Will definitely be back.

We usually preferred to stay in boutique hotels but because we heard so much about the W Retreat & Spa in Seminyak we decide to give it a go. First impression, I thought perhaps we had made the wrong decision as the hotel was huge and I thought 'impersonal' especially when we were told the room wont be ready until at least 3 pm -( the usual check in time), and we arrived at about noon. Decided to have some lunch at the Woo Bar while we waited , food was good but compliment to the very friendly staff and services which we found to be excellent in the other restaurants - Fire and Seafish Bloo as well during our 3 nights stay. I think that's what makes it a lovely place to stay - it has all the modern facilities (BTW our room was gorgeous and worth the wait) and very unique deco in restaurants and common and pool areas yet it has a homely feel to it and the ambience is just lovely and it is all due the services and hospitality of the staff.

From the moment we entered the grounds of the hotel and were greeted by very friendly staff we knew we are in for a great holiday. We came with 8 of our closest friends to celebrate my husbands' 60 birthday and had 7 days filled with joy and tranquility made possible by staff and management. Our one bedroom villa was a dream came true. We will go back!!

Room Tip: 4th floor has rooms with skylight. Very bright.

Loved everything about this hotel. Amazing villa, excellent bars and restaurants, great spa (open 24 hours), whatever/whenever service a brilliant idea, beautiful grounds, good service, friendly smiley staff and perfect location on the beach in Seminyak.

The driveway is very long but you can get a buggy to drop you at the front if you want to get a taxi somewhere or alternatively you can just walk along the beach (which is what we did most of the time). There are heaps of good restaurants near by, the hardest decision of the day will be deciding where to eat!

My husband and I chose to honeymoon at the W Retreat and Spa in Bali and it was just the most wonderful experience! We were greeted by what seems like 7 different people who helped us out with different needs from booking excursions, mopeds, tours of their villas to everything else.

The room is really big and spacious, and when we got to the room we found that the W hotel had laid out a spread of fruits, martinis, chocolates, AND also printed out a picture of my husband and I, framed it, and wrote "Happy Honeymoon!" on it! It's actually a bit creepy how they managed to get a hold of our engagement photo (facebook perhaps??) but the thought was really sweet.

The breakfast buffet is amazing, and it's free for platinum members. What I didn't know until closer to the end of our stay was that there's an a-la-carte menu that you could order from as well as just the regular buffet. This menu is pretty extensive and includes really awesome little gems such as foie gras on toast, and a small skillet of steak and eggs! You have to try it.

The hotel is just really chic and gorgeous, in an awesome location, and everyone just went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was perfect. I highly recommend it to everyone.
