“Above expectations”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Have loved W Hotels for many years and decided to finally try W Bali. Must admit it exceeded my wishes and expectations in every way. From the team members to the rooms to the pool to the spa.

When you stay at W, you know you are going to have the music, the fashion and the design so be prepared for it. The fusion of all three is fantastic at this retreat.

Interesting mix of guests....families, couples, singles and everyone seemed to be having a great time together although I still believe W is perhaps not the best place to take kids wanting a true family vacation.

Fantastic, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone considering a Bali escape in great location.

Room Tip: The skylights on the 4/5th floors of the main building add wonderful light into the rooms

There's no kids club and beach not swimable. This resort had lots of kids staying during our time. We didn't know the W brand was so family friendly. Fine with us as we had a child too! The resort does cater for kids 1) there's daily kids activities at set times eg sand castle making, giant Jenga / connect 4 to name a few 2) they have kids menu 3) I felt the pool was more suited to kids than adults as most parts weren't that deep. Although a tiered pool, no one really swam in the top 2 tiers since pebbles lined the base - looked more like a pond or maybe it was a pond, so bottom tier or biggest pool was busy with kids (and adults trying to relax in a tranquil? environment ) 4) the pool counter had swim noodles, sand castle equipment, and big floating bean bags were in the pool, 5) the resort had many quirky scultpures/ displays around that was a novelty for all ages. 6) lots of shaded areas and canopy (no charge unlike some resorts)

If are looking for an inside and outside setting that wows, a place that can still offer fun to your kids without a kids club or Waterslides, has good food and service, then this is probably it. We've tried a few luxury resorts in Bali but the quirkiness of small touches around the resort, bold colours around the pool, and tasteful contemporary style makes this resort a memorable experience compared to other highend resorts. This is what makes the W unique to other resorts in Bali. It's not another "Balinese style luxury resort" or another "contemporary style hotel" which is a bit boring for us now. other than the food and staff, I can't think of anything Balinese about it.

Besides lots of kids, there was also lots of outside tourists wandering around main pool area to check out the resort and take photos. Due to this, the main pool area wasn't as tranquil as we had hoped. Deck chairs filled most spaces around the pool and people everywhere so the whole ambience actually felt busy and crowded during our stay. For this reason I take away 1 star.

Room Tip: Away from the woo bar as music goes on till 10pm.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the W for 4 nights after staying in other areas of the island and defiantly enjoyed it the most. Resort was perfect, rooms very beautiful & the beach located in front of the resort was super secluded compared to other beaches. Gnarly, sucky little beach break in front too :) Service was not the greatest but really didn't rely on it too much. overall was epic, cheers (we travelled in Sep 2012 but the dates don't go back that far!)

Room Tip: try and get one upstairs beach side, better views

Came to bali as our second honeymoon. We took a one bedroom villa. Lucky for us to get one that was near to the lobby so we did not need the buggy service every time we wanted to leave the room or back, otherwise it can be quite troublesome. The spa was quite difficult for us to book for treatment for a couple at the same time. Anyway, apart from that, everything was amazing here at W, the service, the room, the food, the pool. I cannot imagine staying at any other place in Bali next time. Can't wait to be back.

The W in seminyak is a really nice hotel that has an absolutely amazing charm about it. It is open, spacious and airy. The rooms are grande and luxurious. The bathrooms have a delightful skylight and it lights up the entire space quite differently.
The highlight of the hotel is the swimming pool which is wrapped around the landscaped area. The breakfast at Fire was sumptuous and elaborate. The food at the pool side and grill was equally good. Overall a fine property with a great location and service to match.

Room Tip: Must take a sea view room. Garden view rooms don't really overlook the garden.
