A couple months ago, my husband and I had a fantastic and relaxing time in Seminyak, Bali. Usually, I like packing my schedule very full and make sure I’m not wasting my time during travel. However, for this trip, our goal is to just relax, relax… and relax. So here we are! I’d like to share with you our 5 days trip plan in Bali! 😀
Below is the schedule plan I made. In this blog post, I’ll focus on our excellent hotel experience.
The hotel we stayed at was W Seminyak. Guys, if you are planning a trip to Bali, you MUST consider W Seminyak. This is a wonderful place for vacation. W’s care to their customers is outstanding and you’d feel so well treated, private and secured! Staying at W you would not need to worry about random visitors even come close to your room at all. Their friendly staff and professional services will make sure you feel very at ease. Everything is great quality, the room, the food, the service, the facilities. This is my first time staying at W Seminyak and it will not be my last.
The room we had is the Marvelous Suite (127 M2). It was incredibly spacious with a very large long rectangular living room, large bedroom and a large bathroom and large balcony that oversees the W resort and the ocean. Room cleaning service is the same like W Koh Samui, they’d come two times a day. Their next level is the WOW Suite and the Extreme WOW Suite, and if you travel with a group of friends, they also have an array of villas for your choosing. Villas has no bird’s eye view but you’d get your own private pool. Full room list: http://www.wretreatbali.com/guestroomsoverview
Facility wise, other than the pool area and the restaurants, there are the gym, spa, oxygen bar, fuel bar, health bar, some shopping stores with very pretty beachwear. (I can’t take pictures of the spa area but it’s pretty nice.) Everything you’d need you can find within the hotel.
If you been to W Koh Samui, you may wonder if W Seminyak would be like W Koh Samui, offering unlimited water, soda, and snacks at the SWEET BAR. No, the SWEET BAR here is different, they offer towel when you are laying at the pool area during the day. But in the room, you’d have bottles of complimentary water, replenished everyday or anytime. So if you don’t want to go out and buy water from the local convenient store across the street, you don’t need to. Just remember to tip the hotel guys for appreciation. 🙂
W Seminyak Restaurant – FIRE
There are 3 major places to dine in W Seminyak — Starfish Bloo, Fire and Woo bar, each with a very unique personality. Our first night dinner was at the FIRE, and we ordered the 7-course tasting meal. Each course is of small portion but you’d be very full at the end. If you’re not feeling up for a full course meal, they have other options as well. And, before you order, the waiter would come by each table introducing the type of beef they have for the day in case if anyone is interested in ordering steaks.
The food is very delicious and the plate decor also pleases the eyes. They have names for all dishes.
Here’s a pic of the menu. You can see how it’s very reasonably priced!!
We made a small mistake by choosing the outside seating without applying bug spray before we came down. Luckily all the W restaurants offer customers the hotel’s bug spray. Yet if I could choose the seating again I’d prefer to indoor. The interior decor is very pretty.
By the end of the meal, the chef came to greet us. I forgot to take a picture with him but luckily we met him again during the daytime on our 3rd day there when we were having breakfast at the same place.
W Seminyak Restaurant – STARFISH BLOO
We had breakfast at Starfish Bloo for 2 days and 1 day at FIRE. You can choose your room with or without breakfast but I’d definitely recommend you choose the breakfast package. W Seminyak breakfast is very delicious with amazing variety and plenty of warm dishes, freshly made omelets, salads, fruits, and pastry!
W Seminyak Restaurant – WOO BAR
Woo Bar is perfect for night time inside the hotel. There’s relaxing music, the sound of waves, comfortable seats, drinks and delicious food They also offer blankets of you feel a bit chilly. The only thing you’d need to be aware of is the mosquitoes. W offers its own natural herb mix of bug spray if you need it. I didn’t bring mine so I asked to use theirs. I still got bites… :-p So, remember to bring your own EFFECTIVE bug spray.
