Thanks guys.

Loved the look of Das Stue (as in the hotel) which I found off Design Hotels but it's twice the rate of the usual chains so can't justify that. May pop in for a meal though if we're...

That's standard unless you have status (unsure if it's only for EXPs or EXPs and Platinums). The US call center took my Australian credit card when I was EXP though it usually took a bit of hold...

1) W (excepting the W New York on Lexington Avenue, and I don't really rate the W SF's Living Room crowd)

Nothing else matters. :)

I don't think Platinum upgrades are guaranteed in any Starwood property. If I really want a suite, especially when it's a special occasion, I'll simply pay for one.

Just redeemed a simple MEL-SIN return on SQ Business Class. 773 each way but with the way they're chopping and changing ex-MEL I might end up with a 77W. Miles only, just over GBP100 each way in...

It is a fair walk from the W Lounge to the villa. You get to ride in a buggy, which is much appreciated after a massive night out! I don't like the uneven paths to the villas, unncessary finesse IMO...

Ahh... thanks for that JohnSIN. :)

I'd still pay for a villa. It doesn't feel right going to Bali and not have a villa with private pool. :p

What's the deal with heritage buildings anyway? They're all so old and crummy looking. Moral controversy or not if there's a W i'm there! It's sweet irony even, out with the old, in with the new!

The trouble is they don't seem to have any suites. Or at least I can't see any on the booking engine.

Correct. From what I understand, they will not upgrade to villas nor upgrade to bigger villas.

Apart from 4pm late check out I also got my Plat amenity. Brekky isn't included, though it might...

Thanks for the context. Yes I've noticed that wine in Bali is rather overpriced even when compared to the rest of SE Asia. We did pay about 400 000 Rupiah for a pretty average bottle of Chilean red...

We tried walking along the beach to Ku de Ta and yes it is rather dirty and unappealing. I'd highly recommend cabbing it. Didn't see any lounges or cabanas. Some of the other resorts don't seem to...

If you choose not to imbibe at Ku de Ta, the W Lounge is simply the place to be in the evenings. Abundant views of the beach mean unhindered spectacles of beautiful sunsets,...
