Starfish Bloo in Bali
Chic Pan Asian Dining in Seminyak0
While the W Retreat & Spa in Seminyak is one of the ultra chic resorts on this coast, its dining outlets are laid-back and relaxed affairs. Starfish Bloo, W Bali’s signature restaurant, is set on a calm coast boasting stylish layouts and offering an eclectic mix of Pan-Asian cuisine.
Increasingly popular for its Sunday brunches, Starfish Bloo offers an exotic dining experience day and night with its unique semi-enclosed private tables and an alfresco alternative in the form of a long banquet table surrounded by oversized blue pillars with open views to W’s huge curvy pool and Seminyak’s rolling surf.

Starfish Bloo is as much a treat for the eyes as it is for the palate. This outlet on the southwest shore of W Retreat’s lobby has an exotic ambience. Private tables for up to six are enclosed in towering cages that take the form of lobster traps adorning the restaurant’s centre. Exterior alternatives come in the form of two long tables – one with a shelter supported by huge columns in turquoise resin and adorned with designer Kotuku Fans, and another that is simply open for starlit communal feasts. These ‘Chef’s Tables’ are where you can enjoy special customised dinners fixed up by Chef de Cuisine Matthew McCool.
On Sundays at noon, patrons flock with their families and friends to Starfish Bloo for the popular Sunday Brunch, where live music, spinning DJs and various kids’ activities provide a weekend treat for all. Within the restaurant is a raw bar, a long array of delish items and imported cheeses, an oyster bar decked with aquariums, as well as a sushi bar and a roast station. On the sand, blue starfish cushions and wood finishes provide a breezy option for beach lovers. As evening falls, the main central dining area comes to life with a blue undersea hue, thanks to the unique rattan mesh jellyfish-shaped lamps that hang from the ceiling.
Starfish Bloo’s chef, Matthew McCool carries on the exciting Pan Asian offerings with his own contemporary twists on French, Australian, and Asian cuisine. Among these include oven-braised crispy duck legs and pan-roasted barramundi fillet served with crispy sourdough bread and cauliflower puree, Japanese mushrooms, and topped with colourful edible flowers. For drinks, choose from over 40 selections of wines to pair, or go for Ice’s selection of shaved daiquiris and W’s takes on the Italian lemon liqueur: ‘lemoncello’, ‘pineapplecello’, ‘Nutellacello’ and ‘orangecello’ – all served straight out of the freezer.
Whether you're dining within in one of the ‘lobster traps’, admiring the luminous underwater illusions, outside at one of the Chef’s Tables, or near the sand and under the stars with fun blue neoprene starfish shaped body pillows, you’re in for some unique sights and tastes here.
