Princes and princesses may be the stuff of fairytales for most of us, but at the W Retreat & Spa Bali – Seminyak, every guest is one step closer to feeling like one.
The immense resort is an extravagant escape from the everyday, consisting of 229 retreats, suites and villas; two world-class restaurants; four diverse bars; an indulgent spa; and an enormous outdoor pool, perfect for sunset celebrations.
W Retreat & Spa Bali – Seminyak is owned by the Starwood Group, a global hospitality empire that knows how to put on a show. With more than 48 hotels across a number of continents, it has developed a reputation for show-stopping interiors and remarkable service, creating the ultimate hotel experience.
In bustling Seminyak, the Balinese outpost is no different. Each one of the rooms features the W’s signature sleek designs and innovative touches, combining high-tech amenities with breathtaking ocean or garden views. Book in to one of the Wonderful Garden View Retreats, where a 12 square-metre balcony affords perfect views of the tropics, or opt for the Spectacular Ocean Facing Retreat, where the Indian Ocean is your everyday backdrop.
Regardless of the view, each retreat has all the indulgences you need for a perfect stay: W signature beds, Bliss Spa amenities, high-speed internet, plush bath robes, soaking bathtubs and rainforest showers and a Bose sound system.
The opulence doesn’t stop there. Try the appropriately named WOW Suite, complete with two bedrooms (one master, one twin), a spacious living room, two bathrooms, a large balcony and best of all, spectacular views of the famous Bali sunset.
If the thought of leaving your villa for the pool is too much, try one of the pool villas, where a 24.5-metre private plunge pool awaits. While away the day on a four-square-metre day bed, and order a drink and snack from the Whatever/Whenever 24-hour concierge service. Each pool villa comes with this service, ensuring you don’t have to lift a finger.
As lavish as the in-room facilities are, there’s a lot more waiting for you in the W’s grounds. Take a dip in the enormous pool, inspired by the traditional rice paddies of the archipelago, or settle in the shade with a good book.
Dive deep into a world of relaxation at the 24-hour AWAY Spa, the perfect place to pause and rewind. Opt for an Away Massage, designed to help detox from a playful night out or refuel for upcoming fun, before trying the Goddess Glow – an all-body treatment that includes a scrub, wrap, facial and massage.
When the pampering is over, start all over again at one of the award-winning restaurants or bustling bars on site. Stop by Starfish Bloo for Asian-inspired flavours or get hot and heavy at Fire, where barbecue is king. Come sunset, turn to WOOBAR, W Lounge, Ice Bar or Chill Bar – each venue dishes up delicious drinks in a casual but unique atmosphere.
The W Retreat & Spa Bali – Seminyak delivers the ultimate hotel experience. Between its glamorous accommodation, remarkable facilities and decadent dining options, everyone can feel like royalty.
