W Hotel Spa & Villas in Bali

This is the story of an encounter like no other, it is the story of a moment of my life in Bali, a moment of madness and challenges. As in every time I come in this country, I live in excellence but I must admit that the W hotels are often a base for me. I appreciate the lightness provided by the decor, the sensuality of the Spas care, and the exceptional softness of the W’s suites that are making me a privileged man.

Arriving at the W Bali, Seminyak to be more precise, I did not think I would be touched by its beauty. After passing between the walls illuminated in blue, staying under a magnificent luster and spending some time looking at the beauty and originality of the place, I settled in the bar named ICE. A cocktail was prepared for me and I saw this beauty. The place was spectacular and the girl who had just arrived was just as much. I approached her, observed her, but not wishing to be one of those Casanova that we see everywhere, I stood there.

And then, after a few drinks, she left to go to lunch. How do I know? Could you ask me! Well, I followed her. She set my heart on fire and Restaurant she chose was called Fire. What a coincidence! I moved closer to admire her. The fireball light made the blue from her eyes burst. My dining experience began and tasting the ribs of Kobe beef changed my mind about that meat. The expertise of the W’s chief was certainly the reason I changed my mind.

The woman finished her meal, paid and escaped. I followed her.

Throughout the hotel, many questions ran through my mind. Would she stay in the Refuge Spectacular with ocean view, or else in the extreme WOW suite, or the Refuge Marvelous villa with two bedrooms. My surprise was great when she opened the door of her house, the three-bedroom refuge WOW. Mine was not very far in reality but the fact that her exceptional W Bali Resort & Spa had three rooms made me think.

Did she have children? No, I do not think so. Did she love supreme services? This is the option I chose. How can you resist? Entering this huge villa, I was guided by the red. Then the evocation of a sunset marked my mind. Advancing in this huge room, I turned on the BOSE ® sound system to deliver a sublime jazz song in the villa. Lost my refuge in the heart of the rainforest, it was a scene of happiness, that feeling of being free and happy, without worries. The swimming pool of a surprisingly big dimension had a positive effect on my mind and my thoughts. And then there was the bed in which I wrapped myself with the Egyptian cotton sheets woven of 350 yarns. Dreams then carried me in a beautiful story that invites to romance.

Day after day, I followed her until the day I couldn’t take it anymore.

I had to speak with her. It's across the tropical garden that our eyes met again. It took an exceptional courage, I looked at her and asked her if she wanted to share breakfast. She said “Why not!” And after extensive walk we had Brunch in one of the restaurant and the opportunity to continue the discussion we started. She loved the modernity of the hotel W. I will admit that I shared the same opinion on this style and this blend of contemporary and Balinese traditional architecture.

While discussing, we arrived at the Spa AWAY. Swimming pool, bath with hot stones called "Light My Fire", followed by icy water. Among the wide range of treatments, the therapist advised us to take the “Light My Fire” thinking we were a couple.

During this treatment, the women explained to us the benefits of the treatment until we came to understand that there had been a misunderstanding.

The hours passed quickly at the W Retreat & Spa Bali spoke our feelings in this place forever engraved in our minds and in which we will return to enjoy the services of the perfect W Bali.
