Chic restaurants, electric designs and exclusive treats by the beach - welcome to Seminyak's most stylish, hedonistic playground
It’s no secret that W Bali – Seminyak is full to the fabulous brim with designer island indulgences. It’s a favourite destination for Bali’s international jet-set, sitting in prime position on the hip and happening sands of Seminyak Beach. But honestly? Swanky aesthetics and an A-List address are just the start of this uber-stylish Seminyak icon…
Once you wind your way through the Instagrammable entrance and step inside this hedonistic playground, you’ll come face-to-face with fabulous and sensory treats at every turn. From bottomless Champagne brunches and parties with Seminyak’s cool kids, to exclusive villas and celebrity-style services (not to mention 24-hour spa treatments to keep you revived and kicking) W Bali – Seminyak is one of the most glamorous and contemporary resorts around…
So, to give you a taste of the sizzling and sophisticated splendour at this island icon, here’s what we love the most at W Bali – Seminyak, and why this five-star resort has got the wow-factor.
Perfectly placed in Bali’s hippest hood, W Bali – Seminyak is laced with wow-worthy designs that set the scene for a truly fabulous and tropical escape. Bold interiors, vibrant textures and sensory experiences galore meet Bali’s rich culture and natural beauty, perfectly presenting the island’s captivating spirit through a vibrant W lens. Take the sleek resin contours of the W Lounge for example. Its eye-catching, back-lit bar glows in electric LED hues, melding with chandeliers that resemble Bali’s traditional pagoda roofs. Or how about the enormous 1,790 sqm outdoor WET® pool that’s been inspired by the shape of Balinese rice fields, or the blurred line between inside and out, where sea breezes whip past monsoon screens and whistle through a wall of hand-blown glass jars, each holding a piece of capiz shell that allows the wall to “sing”. All of this, and that’s before we even mention W Bali – Seminyak’s designer digs…
Designer Digs & Stylish Suites
A true oasis of beachfront luxury, W Bali – Seminyak is home to some seriously stylish rooms, suites and villas – most of which offer ocean views over the glittering horizon. Like your own personal hideaway within the resort’s tropical grounds, the designer digs here are an escape within an escape. Think high-energy interiors, Egyptian cotton sheets and ultra-modern amenities (hello BOSE® speakers and Bliss® Spa essentials!) not to mention private plunge pools, sun lounges, terrazzo bathtubs and comfy daybeds within the soundproofed villas, all of which are tucked away from the world outside…
Delish wining & dining
W Bali – Seminyak’s collection of iconic restaurants and lounges need no introduction – the resort’s culinary greats are where you’ll find two of Bali’s best brunches, some of our fave breakfast spreads and the most glamorous gourmet feasts by the beach. Head to Starfish Bloo for its seaside views and fresh-from-the-net seafood, or the oh-so urban FIRE restaurant for Asian-inspired specialities dished up from the dramatic open kitchen. There’s also the forever-fabulous Woobar – a three-story bar on the beach to eat, drink and play at – or the sleek and stylish W Lounge that serves signature cocktails and a multi-tiered afternoon tea. All of these epicurean icons are headed by Executive Chef Beryl Adler, known for his passion for bringing fun, creative and seasonal dishes to the table…
Ain’t no party like a Woobar party
Known for its playful personality, big-name DJ appearances and epic sunset seats, Woobar is hands down one of the coolest places to both chill and party on the island. This stylish beach-side bar is where it’s at for creative cocktails, light bites, and all-night parties with both resident and international DJs taking to the beachfront decks. And because everyone knows that there ain’t no party like a Woobar party, it’s also where you’ll find Bali’s coolest crowds, flocking to the seafront for major events and performances (like SPF, Bali’s hottest annual summer party) and uber-cool island vibes with an Insta-friendly beach backdrop. Cheers to that!
