Here’s why you’ll love it:
Wellness is at its heart
With a philosophy of helping guests to move well, sleep well, eat well, play well, feel well, and work well, the resort offers signature programs that span spa treatments, fitness activities, and local experiences. Don’t miss the Run Westin program, which involves a leisurely run along a natural five-kilometer trail through the surrounding lush hills and rice paddy fields.
The beautiful rooms
Designed in a contemporary style, the 120 guestrooms, suites, and villas are each equipped with the hotel brand’s signature Heavenly Bed and Heavenly Bath, which promise total relaxation. Additionally, two private pool villas offer an intimate experience for larger groups and families, with prime views overlooking the entire resort. Larger families and groups can also take advantage of the connecting suites and villas.
Healthy and hearty dining experiences
Numerous dining options await guests, including all-day dining venue Tabia. The restaurant offers international cuisine and local specialties set within an expansive indoor-and-outdoor space featuring hand-painted murals by local artists. Health-minded guests can tuck into Westin’s Eat Well menu, which features dishes like tomato and burrata salad as well as steamed red snapper. Meanwhile, Tall Trees offers a dining experience complemented with scenic views of the nearby river and tropical forest. Signature dishes here include the locally-inspired bebek duck pinza (dough made with a 200-year-old recipe from Rome) and wood-fired crispy pork belly. Tasty light bites, refreshing cocktails, and drinks are available at The Lobby Bar. Guests can also enjoy their favorite meal in the comfort of their room thanks to the 24-hour in-room dining service.
The rejuvenating spa treatments
Guests can relax and recharge at the resort’s Heavenly Spa by Westin, which offers a well-curated line-up of signature treatments. Recover from jet lag or indulge in massages inspired by local mythology, such as the Heavenly Ritual – a couple’s spa experience that pays homage to the mythical “Oleg Tamulilingan” Balinese dance traditionally performed by a male and female dancer who recreate the courtship of bees in a field of flowers. The treatment begins with a soothing footbath, followed by a revitalizing massage, before ending with a bath for two using essential floral oils.
Spa facilities include five treatment rooms as well as four outdoor spa pavilions overlooking the natural scenery, as well as a jacuzzi and steam room. There is also an open-air pavilion meant for early-risers to partake in morning yoga and meditation classes.
Full-fledged fitness facilities
Guests looking to stay fit can make use of the 24/7 Westin WORKOUT fitness center, complete with TRX machines and other state-of-the-art fitness equipment. Forgot your gym gear? You can loan a gym outfit for a nominal fee.
In addition to the running trail, yoga studio, and gym, the resort also boasts an infinity pool overlooking views of the Wos River. The little ones can have a ball of a time at the nearby children’s pool, which features a miniature waterfall to blend in with the natural surroundings. It is also conveniently situated next to the Westin Family Kids Club, where adventurous activities and guided, interactive programs await young guests.
