W Bali – Seminyak is a modern, contemporary resort designed as a chic destination for the affluent young-at-heart traveler. The resort encompasses a collection of private individual villas of varying size, together with a beachfront hotel block containing guest suites and common facilities.

The ‘WOW’ factor is employed at the every turn throughout the landscape design from the carefully orchestrated arrival sequence to the main swimming pool surrounded by F&B outlets to the pool villas arranged as a ‘Balinese Village’, the resort has a sense of surprise and humor.

The main swimming pool known as ‘WET’ is inspired by tropical scenes of Balinese rice fields and overlooks the famous Seminyak beach.

The W Oasis is the most traditionally Balinese setting of the resort and represents the center of the ‘Village’ comprising one, two and three bedroom pool villas. All villas feature private gardens, outdoor terraces and swimming pools. Local materials and craftsmanship are used throughout the resort, with rough stone walls complementing natural timber roofs and screens. The material palette flows from architecture to landscape unifying the flow of space between villas.
