W Bali Seminyak Review- Why this W hotel stands out from the rest!

 When Bali comes to mind, how can you not think of white sandy beaches, poolside cocktails, and late starry nights dining under open-air terraced rooftops?

(P.S. This is NOT sponsored!)

If you’re ever in Bali, you’ll find that there are several different destinations across the island, each offering a unique perspective of the island’s charm. Naturally, many are swayed by the cultural charm of Ubud, others by the white sandy beaches of Nusa Dua, or the amazing clifftop sunsets of Uluwatu. For me, the destination that instantly comes to mind is, Seminyak. It’s easy to be drawn here by the chic beach-side cocktail bars, the fabulous fine-dining restaurants, and the funky little boutiques. This small town is seriously stylish, no wonder the vibrant and modern led brand W Hotel Bali is located here. Since we were in Bali for a friend’s Destination wedding, naturally, it became a vacation in between.We spent two nights here and never did we want to leave.


Here's my experience staying at the W Bali Hotel

Woo Bar

It's all about the Vibe

Upon arrival at the W, our excitement quickly took over and we couldn’t wait to explore the grounds and check in one of the super stylish rooms. I have always loved the fun, quirky atmosphere at W Hotels, but this W branch tops others by a long shot. Everything was done perfectly – from the reception area to the funky jams blasting through the speakers to just the right amount of young, hip hotel guests – everything about our first impression was amazing.

Spoilt for choice

With more than 200 retreats, suites, and villas, it’s recommended to book the Ocean Facing rooms, but you might hear the thumping soundtracks drifting up from the Woo Bar in the evenings. Not only will you have a great view of the ocean, you might be able to see the sunset. Whether you choose a Retreat or Villa, you can be assured of the super stylish surroundings in which to slumber at the W Hotel Bali. Filled with young, trendy vacationers, this place has both a party edge and fancy restaurants as well as lots of private space to chillax. And, these private pool villas are hard to beat! If you’re interested in celebrating a special occasion in Bali, the W is the perfect destination. Even if Bali’s Mount Agung is on the brink of eruption, don’t let that keep you away from the beautiful island of Bali.
