Bali’s new “Indigenous Utopia” offers a 360-degree sensory experience, beginning in a terraced lobby space – the signature W Lounge – that reveals a sensual aura with vibrant tropical pinks and purples and oversized day beds facing the coastal breeze. Swaths of billowing, sheer linen dance throughout the space, while sturdy synthetic rattan further blurs the line between inside and out. At the Welcome Center, you’ll feel the sea breeze whip past monsoon screens and hear it whistle through a wall of hand-blown glass jars, each holding a piece of capiz shell that allows the jars to delightfully “sing.”
