First-class hotel. Staff were super-efficient, helpful and friendly. We paid for an upgrade to a 2 bedroom villa - amazing and were also allowed a late checkout at no extra charge. Hope to visit again.

We stayed in a private villa which are really impressive in terms of quality and furniture, as was the butler service and special care received from all members of staff, but be aware there is no view from the villa and so you do feel underwhelmed after a while. Breakfast was excellent, the views from the main building are gorgeous and the hotel itself is stunning.

However, it is way overpriced in terms of room rates, spa treatments, food and drinks. This results in the place being largely empty and no atmosphere. I regret not choosing the cheaper option of sea view rooms in the main hotel building and not the villa as I did not feel it was spectacular enough to warrant the additional expense.

Visited Bali for a weeks vacation and W Bali was the highlight of my stay. The hotel is large but you are made to feel very welcomed by all the staff you come in contact with.
The welcome drink is available in the living room and you can help yourself as much as you like throughout your stay.
The facilities are No 1 in all areas I enjoyed.
The gym was great and it connected to the spa so you had use the steam room plus the hot and cold pools in the change rooms.
Bicycles are readily available to use (free and works on "first comes" ) so made good use of these to ride around the Seminyak area.
The restaurant and bars are amazing with a huge variety of choice in the menu and although not as cheap as downtown, the quality, service and environment you get to enjoy it is worth every penny!
The rooms are large by any means and loaded with lots of interesting bits and pieces, Bose surround music system, large walk in shower, tub, dressing area and great bliss amenities. They even provide your own personnel insect repellant!
There is lots to talk about this place, and even though it is not cheap, it is worth the investment!
For those that want something special and even it is only once in a lifetime, pay the money and get wowed!

My wife and I stayed for one night. We had a ocean facing room. To be honest, on the 3rd floor and facing the ocean is about all I could say about the room; it wasn't an ocean view other than small glimpses between palm trees as they are exactly level with you. To get an ocean view you need to be on fourth or fifth floor (and probably even more money than the already rather expensive rate of 400 usd a night). Check in took the better part of a half an hour as well with the service desk seeming to type away at goodness knows what for an eternity.

We ate at Fire restaurant that night. It was ok but nothing sensational. As seems usual, the wine I picked was not available and the one that I ended up ordering of course was 2 years younger than the listed one.

We had drinks down by the beach that night and it was quite nice - and a nice selection of wines by the glass and cocktails.

Room service was a disaster for breakfast in the morning. For a fruit plate and two juices no one came for over 45 minutes and we had to call again. For something cooked, maybe I could see a morning rush (well, other than the hotel was not even full) but this was for fruit....on a plate. This kinda thing should have a few laid out at 6am to avoid this kind of thing.

We ate at Bloo for lunch the next day. This was much better although my wife said the salmon cooked on the rock was a bit fishy so possibly not the freshest. My beef rib was very nice.

The service was generally quite good and enthusiastic (other than the check in time and room service failure). The room itself, frankly for the amount of cash I found underwhelming. Certainly not huge. It was good but not great and at this price point I had hoped for more.

As such, it is undoubtedly a nice hotel in a great location but overall for me value for money wasn't really there.

Glad to back. Can't help but love the quality of service at this great property.

I can't name any staff as standing out as I would have to name every person I came in contact with during the stay.

Dined with 7 pax at starfish bloo for a birthday dinner, amazing! Attention to detail from the personalized menu to the service was great.

Also I noticed the breakfast has gotten even better over the years, they now have a sushi station and have the cooked to order service back.

Booked this as a surprise for my partners 40th birthday and as there was a large group of 10 of us we decided to get one of the large villa's.
The hotel were so accommodating and all of the staff were so friendly and helpful to make it a birthday my boyfriend wouldn't forget.
I cannot wait to go back to this hotel again!
