...The W Hotel Bali!
Yesterday, we teased you a bit with how hotels are gearing up for Summer with heat-wave worthy cocktails. Well, there's a place that only really sees summer year-round and knows how to serve up some easy, breezy drinks to soak up the sun. Bragging about their near-perfect weather, the W Hotel Bali just posted an Instagram that will stir envy with all of their followers.
Rooftop bars are cool and very few hotels do them as well as a W, so why not showcase the super hot sun and tropical libations with an over-the-top fabulous shot? We really can't find an answer for that, and we're totally alright with it.
There has to be something that is retro chic about lounging around surrounded by all things paradise, not to mention it makes us want to head back to Bali as soon as we can. With a few warmer days here in the 'nifty fifty', there is a glimmer of hope that Summer is right around the corner and we can find our position at our favorite roof-top hangout. This snap from the tropical island has us hoping the the mercury rises quickly because we might need a healthy does of vitamin D.

There's travel talk everywhere about how expensive it'll be to fly and drive this summer, so there has to be some savings somewhere, yes? The most obvious place will be in hotel rates, and so our gift to you this week will be one hotel a day that comes in under $100 a night.
Now, we're not saying every place will be of Ritz quality, because then it would be...well, the bloody Ritz. But the places will be nice enough for you to sleep at night.
Our Pick: Best Western Kuta Beach, Bali
A couple of readers (full disclosure: our parents) hit up Bali this week, and though they were not kind enough to take us with them, they were generous enough to send some snapshots of a villa at the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay to show us what we were missing.
Standard rates for just a room at this resort start at 680 USD, while a villa like this one will run you upwards of $1,800. The spa, with a collection of Ayurveda-inspired treatments, is not to be missed.
Two more snaps after the jump.
