WHERE TO SLEEP WOW
W Retreat & Spa Bali, Seminyak is the venue of choice for discerning and style-conscious trendsetters who want to be wowed by the finer things in life.
WRetreat & Spa Bali, Seminyak is located in the trendy enclave of Seminyak and reinvents the exuberance of its locale, where designer boutiques, art galleries, lively restaurants and modern cocktail bars and clubs hold court. The first W Hotel in Indonesia, W Bali brings a “new scene unseen” to the island through its modern design and signature bars and restaurants. Arriving at W Bali, we are welcomed by the signature W Lounge (W’s take on the traditional hotel lobby), with its vibrant tropical pinks and purples, oversized daybeds facing the coastal breeze and sturdy synthetic rattan that further blur the line between inside and out. The sea breeze whips past monsoon screens and whistles through a wall of hand-blown glass jars, each holding a piece of capiz shell that allows the wall to “sing”. The sleek resin contours of the W Lounge, with its eyecatching back-lit bar glowing in electric LED hues, meld with lampshades woven from synthetic rattan to resemble pagoda roofs in Bali. W Retreat & Spa Bali, Seminyak reflects the rich natural beauty and cultural heritage of the destination, with playfully bold designs and textures, inspired by the “conceal and reveal” mysticism of Bali. With a contemporary take on traditional Balinese design, each space allows you to mix and mingle and be part of the scene or remain unseen as you escape into your own retreat.

Indulge in true taste sensations at Starfish Bloo, where the world’s best meats, seafood and spices are interpreted in the finest Asian flavours by way of Western sensibilities.
