Although Seminyak had a humble beginning, it has evolved into one of Bali’s most sophisticated retreats. Still, it isn’t a typical beach resort. Thus, if you want to see a different side of Bali and its tourism, book a Seminyak sojourn with confidence.
Visit these must-see cultural landmarks
In Seminyak you can explore Indonesian arts and culture like nowhere else, at your own pace. The first place on the list is the Petitenget Temple, an ancient structure which is lavishly celebrated every year. The beach right next to it makes for a stunning backdrop and a great place to watch the sunset. Also visit the nearby Masceti Ulun Tanjung temple. For a soul that loves contemporary art, try the Biasa ArtSpace, which also exhibits local fashion design. If you’re up for interactive fun, you must see the Trick Art 3D Gallery. The name speaks for itself. You may photograph yourself with the very realistic and tricky images for a jaw-dropping optical illusion.
Stay in a villa of your own
Bali travel experts advise tourists to book a private villa in Seminyak. They can benefit of all the privacy they want, of catering, a clean pool and proximity to major attractions. The bali villas seminyak offers have modern features but also exhibit a traditional charm, which is why visitors return and tend to book the same places. You can book a villa with as many bedrooms as you like and enjoy true luxury at an affordable price. Make sure to make your reservation through a certified, English speaking agent.
Head straight to the best beaches
The Seminyak beach itself may sound like the place where everyone gathers, but in fact you will find it to be quiet and serene. Occasionally locals come out to play sports. Wander along the beach and watch turtles in your way or opt for horseback riding. The Double Six beach is also recommended by seasoned travelers who found it peaceful, clean and very safe for swims. Plus, it’s got some amazing drinks, although on the more expensive side.
Visit a quaint and unusual cafe
The selection here is remarkable. You can have a brunch among colorful Gypsy caravans in a fascinating rural setting at the bohemian La Laguna, which is frequently visited by peacocks. Or, you may try the heavenly lush green garden setting and the soothing open spaces of Nook Bali, serving both Balinese and Western dishes. The Nirvana Burger Bar is also on the list, but not necessarily for its food. Enjoy its live music nights and the fire shows.
Join a poolside event
Seminyak hosts many poolside parties in very stylish venues. Hunt for glamorous events at fine dining spots. These will be unforgettable. Some locations are well enriched with palm trees and frangipani flowers. It will make you feel like a star.
There is much more to Seminyak than these attractions we mentioned here. Feel free to discover it yourself, as you will surely be able to tailor your experience as desired.
Take impressive photos
Besides the beaches and the sunsets, we suggest to do sailing or can visit W Hotel and. Its entrance is like straight out of a fairytale: you get to pass through a bamboo forest tunnel. The natural green leafy arches create a wonderful frame for your photos – you’ll be a star on Instagram!
