Retreat F+B

W Retreat & Spa Bali | Fire 

The design concept of FIRE at W Bali is based on the ancient Balinese Kecak Dance. Colors are black, white, yellow and red.

A 'poleng cloth' marble counter surrounds the open theatre-kitchen, and a smoldering fireball chandelier takes center stage. The ceiling is a radial pattern of timber slats, with a burnt finish. Black terrazzo and textured Java Gold stone 'anchor' the space to earth. 

Opened March 1st 2011

In 2008, Poole Associates was commissioned to design seven experiences at W Retreat & Spa, Bali.

The traditional Balinese black, white and grey Poleng pattern represents the struggle between good and evil.



Walls are clad with long hair pony hides, and columns in Java Gold stone. Heliconia resemble flames


Wake up to an interactive breakfast with freshly baked delights, favorite Asian flavors and modern creations as gourmet coffees and teas ease you into the day. Things heat up throughout the day with a wood-fired grill and pizza oven at heart of the open show kitchen, where you can watch chefs take the spotlight and sizzling culinary sensations to a fiery finish. From gourmet pizzas to freshly sourced fine meats and seafood to stir-frys in the wok, a plethora of sides with lots of kick will keep your main attractions in good company. Think signature roasts carved tableside, such as a master Kobe striploin with a marble score of 9 and grain-fed Black Angus prime rib aged for 200 days. Cool off with the Liquid of Fire, our signature cocktail dramatically mixed with infused vodka, dried dates, sage leaves, fresh chili, Gomme syrup and curry powder for a sweet and sour pre-dinner aperitif with kick.

Everyone can have fun dining at Fire, from a children's menu for the wee ones to a choice of two private dining rooms featuring degustation menus. Or you can design your very own sensational experience when you collaborate on that perfect platter with our chefs. To complement, select one of our thoughtfully curated wines and champagnes from the extensive collection in the cellar tower. Topping off your experience is a dramatic chandelier that's the center of attention, as strong reds, yellows, blacks and whites stream through marbles inspired by local black and white poleng cloths and pendant lamps, invoking the spirit of the fire-themed kecak dance. Horse-skin adorns the walls, a daring setting for soaring wooden seating flanked by bright red and yellow chairs. An outdoor al fresco area is all about dining under umbrellas and palm trees with cheerfulness all around.


Kecak Chandelier by Lasvit Czech Replublic, is fully installed on 24.03.11. Ruby red glass tendrils fade to amber at the tips. A technique that can only be done by a few manufacturers. The red glass derives its' color from 24k gold melted into the mix.
