Shop, dine and party at Bali’s most famous holiday spot, Seminyak. Located between Legian and Canggu, Seminyak is a true melting pot of lavish accommodation, high-end restaurants and exciting beach clubs, flocked to by backpackers and partygoers alike.

Bali’s hippest beach town is popular among travellers looking for a more upscale and sophisticated alternative to Kuta when it comes to partying, dining and shopping. 

Rapid development in recent years has made Seminyak almost as busy as Kuta without sacrificing its unique character and culture, such as the many street names that derive from the hotels and restaurants first opened in the area.

Of the many international chefs that have settled in Bali to open restaurants, most have done so along the streets of Seminyak. Jalan Laksmana, also known as “Eat Street”, is at the heart of a vibrant food scene. Great restaurants of all types can be found throughout the area, including local family-owned eateries known as warungs, making Seminyak the ideal location for food enthusiasts to explore.

Seminyak is also famed for its dazzling sunsets and beautiful beaches, which are adorned with dozens of trendy beach bars and clubs. Offering everything you would expect from an upbeat holiday destination, DJs and bands are invited here from the world over to play for fashionable crowds, who should be aware of a cover charge upon entry at some venues.

Reservations are recommended prior to arrival if you plan to visit the resort’s beach clubs, bars or restaurants, as most places are usually full and booked up during sunset hours.
