A Spa Open 24/7 at the New W Retreat and Spa Bali-SeminyakSeptember 13, 2010 By: Mary Winston Nicklin
December can’t come soon enough. A new W Retreat and Spa is opening December 15th in Bali’s Seminyak, the popular ex-pat area on the west coast, brimming with hip boutiques, galleries, restaurants and clubs. The debut comes hot on the heels of the film release of “Eat, Pray, Love”—Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir that’s sold more than 7 million copies worldwide and has inspired a major travel trend of soul-seeking trips to Italy, India and Bali. W’s beachside retreat is a hedonistic playground surrounded by lush tropical gardens and the sparkling sea.
The resort promises to shake things up in the Island of Gods with the brand’s signature Whatever/Whenever service. Do your clients want a romantic dinner under the stars on a secluded beach? A Balinese dance lesson? A flight over active volcanoes? Anything (legal!) is possible.
Overlooking the ocean and the resort’s verdant gardens , the 237 retreats, suites and villa retreats sport a sleek design aesthetic, stacked with fun amenities like private pools, soaking tubs and rainforest showers, Bliss bath products, MunchieBox and mini bar, a sound system, flat screen LCD TV, IP phone and voicemail.
After getting into island time with a day on the beach or lolling in the pool, your clients can “eat, drink, flirt and play at Woobar.” In true W fashion, the three-level bar promises to attract the trendsetting cool crowd with sassy cocktails, an international DJ, and a top floor tanning and lounging area. For dining, your clients can take their pick from grilled delights at Fire or sushi and PanAsian cuisine at Starfish Bloo.
Perhaps the best part of all: the expansive AWAY Spa, open 24/7, for the ultimate R & R. Wind down in the spa’s plunge pools, floating and meditative chambers, and experience suites. There’s also a pedicure bar, hammam/oxygen room, and outdoor cabanas with a yoga platform. The spa offers three menus to choose from: Serene & Soulful, Glamour & Glitz, and Fit & Fabulous. We like the sound of the “Morning After” massage, the “Raw Energy” crushed sea salt & seaweed body brushing, and the Diamond Dust Body Polish & Pure GOLD wrap.
