I flew in to Bali on Sunday afternoon, and walked out of the airport to the flooding warmth of hot tropical air. it’s hard to believe not 6 hours before I was rugged up from the Sydney winter and heading to the airport for my flight, excited about my stay at The W Hotel in Seminyak in Bali…
Driving through after work traffic wasn’t ideal but it was a quick introduction the fast paced Balinese roads, and definitely meant that I would rely heavily on the easily accessible and affordable taxis. Driving into the entrance of the W Hotel is instantly calming, the lush canopy of bamboo trees is both fairytale like and eastern asian at the same time. Each section you drive through has its own character, nothing is missed whether it is the different surface roads, water features, vegetation, and finally the sweeping rounded entrance where the welcome is warm and inviting.
I headed straight to meet my friend Nathan who had already flown in on Saturday, the rooms are stunning which each section from the massive walk in shower and bath space to the luxuriously comfortable beds it is delightful.
The view from the room was breathtaking looking out to the lit pool area, where the crowd had started to gather for the Sunset Sessions featuring International guest DJ Laura Jones.
