Interior designers Poole Associates Private Limited needed a stylish and energy-efficient airflow solution to keep guests comfortable while dining al fresco at the W Bali – Seminyak Retreat & Spa. Attempts to mechanically regulate temperature in open areas, such as the dining terraces at the Starfish Bloo and FIRE restaurants, can be costly and inefficient. The W Bali needed another way to ensure the comfort of its guests.


Twenty-five white matrix composite Haiku® ceiling fans from Big Ass Fans proved to be the perfect solution, providing minimalist design, silent operation and air movement to increase guests’ comfort while complementing themes of both elegant interiors. The air movement provided by ceiling fans increases the thermal comfort of patrons and employees, while the fans also serve as a striking design feature.
