After a few days in the mountains in Ubud our group split up, Emma and I dropped Elli and Mikku off at the airport so they could jet off to Australia and we headed back to the beach.
We stayed at The W, Seminyak, which could not have been more opposite of the places we had been staying at throughout the trip in terms of style and design. It was an absolutely gorgeous, but extremely modern resort right on the beach with an incredible multi level pool modeled after the rice terraces in the countryside of Bali.
Our room was perfect, a typical hotel room that you would see at any big resort, the real game changer was our bathroom. It had a massive shower with a rainfall type shower head and a huge deep bathtub, complete with rubber ducky friends. I was in heaven.
I spent most of our time walking on the beach and sitting at the pool, recouping from the first couple of weeks and preparing for my retreat. It was the perfect spot to regroup. I love the pool, Bali is all about bean bag chairs and The W, Seminyak did not disappoint, they had amazing, massive bean bag chairs positioned around the pool for lounging, and floating bean bags which is obviously where I spent most of my days.
Wandering through the hotel was so relaxing, there was loads of little places to sit and have a glass of fresh juice and a bunch of cool artwork to look at.
The energy is great, it’s definitely a different crowd than the other places I’ve stayed. Younger and less family oriented it was a fun spot to be. Sitting on the beach watching the sunset you could see loads of people walking around and hopping from beach bar to beach bar.
The best sunsets I saw during my trip were from the pool and beach right in front of The W, Seminyak it was the perfect way to end one part of my trip before heading off to my surf and yoga retreat for my last week in Bali!
