W Retreat & Spa Bali - Seminyak
What it is
A 229-room modernist Balinese resort with inventive restaurants, a waterfall in the spa, and buzzing beachfront nightlife.
What it isn't
Phoning it in, design-wise. Take the palm tree-flanked pool, which was designed in layers to evoke Indonesian rice fields.
What we think
International DJs descend on this oceanside resort for good reason: it doesn’t sleep. Everything from the spa to the concierge is open 24/7. The guest rooms themselves are restful retreats, with locally-made art, terrazzo and wood floors and 350-thread-count sheets and goose duvets casting cloud-like comfort over the signature W beds. It’s well worth upgrading to a Marvelous villa; each is stocked with a private sundeck and daybed, 43-square-meter plunge pool, Bose entertainment system, terrazzo soaking tub and...of course...valet service for “Whatever/Whenever” available 24 hours a day.
You're here because
You’ve been unashamedly into techno music and were charmed to learn the hotel has its own music curator, reportedly one of the top DJs in Asia.
Staffers here can put together any activity for you, whether you want to helicopter over surrounding beaches, fly-fish, or even bowl. But today, you’re doing what your soul is begging you to do: stop. You beeline to the spa, where you dart between the cold vitality pool and a hot stone bath before your note-perfect massage. You find it somewhat ironic that they use Bliss products because that’s exactly what this is.
