One of the wonders of Bali is the variety it offers, and with so many different areas to choose from it’s vital that you stay in the area most suited to you.
Seminyak has quickly become the upmarket ‘Beverley Hills’ of Bali, as it’s bursting with Western style restaurants and high-end bars as well as the best nightclubs in Bali. Although only a few kilometres from the party-central Kuta, its a world apart and more suited to families, couples, and the more casual traveller that’s looking for some style and glamour. With many boutique shops and luxury spas and, of course, it’s own beautiful beach, Seminyak is our number one choice when booking a holiday in Bali.
Live in luxury and class
Despite many world-class hotels and resorts opening in Seminyak, the most popular type of accommodation with tourists is a private villa as it allows for more privacy and space but still within walking distance of the restaurants, bars, and beach. villas in Seminyak are very unique in their own right. With manicured and landscaped gardens, spacious and elegant rooms, infinity pools, modern design and decor, and incredible food choices by their personal chefs, these villas are a more superiour option to staying in a hotel. For the duration of your stay, you will be served by warm and expertly trained staff who’s job it is to make sure you have an entirely relaxing stay.
Peaceful and fun activities
Seminyak is a beach person’s paradise. It offers numerous activities that can be enjoyed by everyone. It has breath-taking sunsets, best enjoyed with friends while chilling out with a drink in hand and sitting on a beach beanbag. If inclined, one can even horseback-ride along the coastline during sunset or have a day of pampering in one of the spas (at a fraction of the cost of back home). The activities available are endless: water sports, surf lessons, cooking classes, waterparks… the list goes on.
For a touch of local culture and an even more unforgettable experience, make sure to schedule your trip to Seminyak to coincide with the rituals and ceremonies as per the Balinese Calendar. Make time to visit the holy temple of Pura Petitenget, which is the best place to watch these rituals. The temple itself is Seminyak’s only and main cultural landmark that has existed for centuries.
