Seminyak: Best Shopping, Spa, and Fine Dining in Bali

 

Overview

An essential part of the swathes of stunning beaches along the  south coast of Bali next to  the vibrant ambience of Kuta, is Seminyak beach and  the town of Seminyak,  which has  its own  eclectic mix of world-class restaurants, high end spas, designer boutiques, international surf shops and lifestyle brand outlets, that truly offer some of the best experiences on th

An essential part of the swathes of stunning beaches along the  south coast of Bali next to  the vibrant ambience of Kuta, is Seminyak beach and  the town of Seminyak,  which has  its own  eclectic mix of world-class restaurants, high end spas, designer boutiques, international surf shops and lifestyle brand outlets, that truly offer some of the best experiences on the enchanting island of Bali.

 

Seminyak today is Bali's up-and-coming fashion, dining and accommodation precinct,  an upmarket coastal enclave just north of Legian and Kuta. Situated some 10km from Denpasar, capital city of Bali, Seminyak stretches from Double Six Street in the south and morphs into the villages of Kerobokan and Umalas, north of Pura Petitenget temple. Although it may be somewhat difficult to stipulate  where precisely  Kuta, Legian or  Seminyak begin or end, but one thing is clear: Seminyak is certainly in a class all its own. The atmosphere here is much more sophisticated and laid-back compared to  Kuta, while the beach in particular is relatively quieter during the day.

 

Over the past 10 years, Seminyak has developed a world-class dining scene. Seminyak is packed with some of Bali’s finest and most well-established restaurants, while several of its roads are recognized as must-visit dining destinations. Dubbed as a food-lover’s haven, rich flavors from all around the globe, prepared by highly skilled chefs – some of whom  are notable figures in the international culinary scene – can be found here. From Italian, Spanish, Mexican, Japanese and Thai, as well as innovative Indonesian fusion, all the choices of world's cuisines are offered here,  sure to promise quite a feast.

 

Seminyak restaurants are mostly found along the Jalan Laksmana main route, while others are scattered around the southern area of Petitenget and way up to Batubelig. Some offer impressive sunset views and beachfront settings, while Seminyak’s premier entertainment venues, the likes of Ku De Ta and Potato Head Beach Club, have a highlighted dining venues that are worth specific mention. Other significant names in Seminyak's Dining scene include: Chandi, La Lucciola, Sarong, Métis, Sardine, Mama San, Merah Putih, and more.

 

Amidst  the many restaurants and cafes, is the  Seminyak's shopping scene comprising  exclusive fashion boutiques and lifestyle brand outlets. Most of the smaller shops line the main road of Seminyak's Main Street (also referred to as Basangkasa Street), while a collection of other fashionable boutiques can be found along Laksmana Street and several corners of Petitenget Street. Whether modern or  ethnic chic, with natural and silk fabrics adorned with beading and sequins in strong deep colours – their summer collections are perfect for Bali’s tropical climate and any summer day around the world. This glamorous tropical wear can be found in Biasa Bali or Bamboo Blonde, while Deus Ex Machina and Drifter Surf Shop cater to the wave riding crowd with their cool boards and apparel.

 

For some great world-class, island-based jewellery pieces, drop in on  the House of Jemme that flanks a green patch of rice paddies on Petitenget Street, or Tulola Jewelry further down the road where it showcases its sterling silver and gold exquisite jewellery line created by a New York-born Balinese designer.

 

Seminyak is also the high-end spa capital of Bali featuring great luxury in sophisticated setting, with so many options to choose from, where one can truly experience a perfect Balinese getaway.

 

Among some of the prominent spas in Seminyak are: Jari Menari (literraly meaning dancing fingers), Bodyworks, Amo Beauty & Spa, Oberoi Spa, and more.

To Do

Continuing the long sweep of Kuta, white sandy beaches stretch in both directions as far as the eye can see. The two notable beaches are the Seminyak Beach and Petitenget Beach which offer fantastic views of the Balinese sunset. Seminyak Beach is favored because of  the great waves that are most  ideal for surfers. This beach also features a beautiful panorama on the Indian Ocean.

Continuing the long sweep of Kuta, white sandy beaches stretch in both directions as far as the eye can see. The two notable beaches are the Seminyak Beach and Petitenget Beach which offer fantastic views of the Balinese sunset. Seminyak Beach is favored because of  the great waves that are most  ideal for surfers. This beach also features a beautiful panorama on the Indian Ocean.

At the Petitenget Beach stands a picturesque Hindu Temple known as Pura Petitenget which has actually given its name to the beach. The temple is most known for particularly spectacular beach-side ceremonies and is said to have been built in the 16th century. Although this is not one of the key nine directional temples of Bali, it is an important link in the series of west coast temples located between Pura Uluwatu and Pura Tanah Lot.

 

Seminyak also features the best known bungy jumping fun  in Bali, the  Aj Hacket Bungy at Double Six nightclub which is part of the famous New Zealand-based AJ Hackett group. The jump is 45 m over a pool, and there is an elevator to the top of the tower.
