SeminyakIndonesia

Stay in a luxurious villa, indulge in spa treatments, shop for high-end clothing or simply relax on the beach at Seminyak, the upmarket alternative to busy Kuta.

As you make your way to Seminyak north from Kuta, either along the beachfront or along the Jalan Legian road, you soon begin to notice the change in atmosphere. The beaches are quieter, the buildings grander and the wares in the shops more expensive. These distinctions have helped Seminyak forge its identity as the destination for the upmarket Bali traveler.

Shopping in Seminyak can fill an entire day and more. You’ll find all the major labels alongside locally owned shops. Prices are expensive compared to other areas of Bali, but are still likely to be cheaper than you will find in most Western countries. Jalan Laksmana has many designer stores, while Seminyak Square offers the chance to pick up a bargain away from the bustle of the main streets.

When it’s time to eat, choose from a number of Bali’s finest restaurants, many of which are located along Jalan Petitenget. Rooftop dining is a popular pastime here, so choose your table, order a cold beer or cocktail and watch the bustle of the street below.

See the traditional side of the region at the Petitenget Temple, a typically ornate Balinese structure close to the beach. Keep an eye out for one of the many religious ceremonies that often spill out onto the shore.

When it’s time to recharge, book a treatment at one of the many spas in the area. Alternatively, head to the beach, where finding a spot to yourself is far easier than further down the coast at Kuta. Seminyak Beach has some of the gentlest waves on the island, so it’s a great spot to try surfing. Along the shore at Double Six Beach you can go horse riding, get a massage or enjoy a fresh fruit cocktail.

It’s best to get around Seminyak on foot. Traffic is often congested and public transport not easy to come by. Alternatively, rent a bicycle or moped, or take a taxi from Seminyak Square.
