W Retreat & Spa Bali

By Conde Nast Traveler Friday, March 18 06:40 PM

In a destination as beautiful as Bali, it's little wonder that traditional architecture blurs the lines between indoors and out. The W Retreat & Spa, opened earlier this month in Seminyak, finds inspiration in that tradition. Sea breezes whistle through the open-air lobby; in the 237 guest rooms, floor-to-ceiling glass walls, please-touch green stingray headboards, and mother-of-pearl panels allow for constant reminders of the surrounding beach and jungle.

The hotel's scene-y collection of restaurants and bars includes the three-story beachfront WooBar, which is open to the elements, while Fire puts the focus on an open kitchen. But don't worry--the resort has been careful to add plenty of lush coves and hidden corners, because some things shouldn't be on show for all to see.

W is a breathtaking resort! We spent five magical days there. When in Bali don't miss to go to Waterbom Park for a fun day out! Also highly recommended: Sekar Jagat Spa for a delightful couple spa and have some delicious Balinese food at Ketupat Resto in Kuta Enjoy!
