The pool is very relaxing, even if it is busy doesn’t seem to crowded, hotel workers come round with fruit sticks and mist sprays which is a nice touch. The room was lovely we had a spectacular king ocean facing room which didn’t disappoint. Bathroom was brilliant, good gadgets and tv was good. The woo bar was fantastic the sunset was some of the best we have seen, drinks and food are good prices for the setting and atmosphere. Good DJ, we had a wonderful evening will stay again just maybe for longer! Read less

I've been to W Bali for more than 10 times, and all the times i've been there with my partner we were treated so incredibly well. They really made us feel like home. 10/10 for consistent bomb hospitality. Their villa is so nice & spacious, bed super comfortable, sound system in the room is bomb & was somewhat soundproof. Music was loud in our villa but when were chilling by the pool at the cabana, we can barely hear the music surprisingly. So we were sure we didn't disturb our neighbours. Chef even gave us a complimentary tomahawk steak! Spa was super cool, modern & relaxing. Read less

Location Located in the hip / boutique area of Seminyak near Petinenget. Driving -About 40 minutes from airport. 15 min to Legian & 25 to Kuta. Right on the beach with no road in between. Very secure as has a very long interesting drive way with very detailed security checks. Various coffee shops, restaurants & shop outside on main road to walk to. But hotel is set far back with only noise being the ocean waves. Room Room was the standard garden view room ‘wonderful garden escape option’ which is not facing the sea but on 3rd floor with view from balcony of Palm tree gardens & hammocks, looks chilled. Though the sea is heard clearly. The room is large & spacious. As you walk in an open plan glass walled large bathroom is displayed. Two sinks for each guest & a huge shower cubicle. Large spacious bath with shower hose as well as large rain shower also with separate hose. The roof is interesting as via remote you can open the roof & let natural light display over the bath. All round very spacious with the generous full set of bliss amenities, plenty of towels, robes & slippers. It’s all glass but a screen can offer privacy from room if needed. The corridor offers three large wardrobes, one for each person plus a safe, ironing facility & umbrella on offer. A cool feature is the door handles are lit up in pink light. Next is a large mini bar that offers o only a kettle but large sachets of coffee for pots. But no nice espresso machine. Mini bar is extensive with alongside drink & snacks has intimate pack, sun lotion sets, & even the hotel branded cap. About 6 water bottles are complimentary and they keep bring them during turn over. There is also a bug spray in room and a cool complimentary W branded insect repellent. Huge desk with sliding mirror to move in front of the large TV, other amenities include Bose sound system that plays some dance CD, sort of commercial electronic, some cheese but some chill. Couldn’t figure how to sync with phone since surround sound speakers by Bose sound amazing. The desk has plenty of room to work with amble supply of international plug sockets. Sliding mirror in rails is attached. There is also an interesting mellow light box & wireless phone, guides & stationary. The TV offers plenty of international options such as BBC & movie channels. For seating there is a spacious comfy corner sofa with boutique hanging lamp in corner. Two large queen beds with bedside tables plug sockets as well as JBL Bluetooth connected alarm clock. Plenty of pillows & full light controls between beds. Decor in the room is quite stylish mellow beige colors with green pillows & bed spreads, very comfortable bed to sleep. The balcony is nicely fitted with comfy upright arm chair & side bed with pillows to chill out & coffee table to relax have a drink & listen to ocean in the evening. Nice lamps for the exterior lights. Overall the room is faultless, all furniture was in tip-top condition, very clean & functional, spacious with some quirky art pieces. One of the best if not the best rooms I stayed at in Indonesia. Facilities The hotel offers free WIFI and worked well throughout. Business center also exists. For catering there are two restaurants- Fire & Seafood Starfish blu which is more aimed towards fish. Breakfast in general has ala carte or buffet options at both & was of good standard. Obviously quite expensive. For drinks, there is the lobby bar & the famous Woo bar. The Woobar is the spot for sunrise, with decent music banging out on their full sound system , lots of arm chairs & sofas right next to beach with great cocktails & Shisha on offer, but the service is a little slow. Expect to pay nearly 500k for shisha & two cocktails. However great ambiance especially for taking photos of sunset. The lobby bar is also jazzed up & quite nice view of the pool & beach area from above. The pool is of two layers curving around the palm trees with a rice paddy influence to the design. It was open 24 hours & managed to get my swim laps in at 2am before bed. Plenty of sun loungers & even huge cushion to lie on, one can also have cabana beds with curtains next to the beach. There is also a modern gym, which leads to a free spa area offering a oxygen chill out zone, great for hang overs. Very blue velvet lighting style. There is also a steam room with hot & cold plunge pools. Great for when it’s raining. Large 24hr massage service area which is not cheap, however the standard of room & therapist is very high. You pay for what you get. Various shops exist in the lobby from the overpriced W store (40AUD for a T-shirt), plus other clothing & boutique shops seen. Staff Staff are just so friendly & welcoming, reception did take a while but staff get on your level with a dedicated guest service ambassador to each guest. Everywhere staff are proactive to welcome & engage but ordering drinks & shish took ages at Woobar. Overalls clear cut 5 star fun boutique hotel and the resorts of W feel better than some of the city branches. Look forward to Ubud opening up soon. Will definitely come again. Read less
