An old-time favourite holiday destination or the next best hot spot for a girls-week-away or a holiday with your best mates. We have 1 word for you: Seminyak!
Here’s why:

Seminyak is a shopping paradise

Oberoi Street is the place to be for all your shopping needs. One lively street leading towards Seminyak Beach in the heart of town. This chic and trendy beach street is home to numerous boutique shops, fashion stores and shopping malls. In between those shops, there are fabulous coffee cafes and restaurants for a quick pit-stop or a delicious meal. Keep going towards Petitenget and you’ll find even more unique shopping boutiques. Feeling tired from all of that shopping? Hit the spa and get a foot massage to be quickly revived and ready for some more strolling around.

Once you’ve been out shopping and found yourself a gorgeous bikini, it is time to lounge and relax at one of Seminyak’s famous beach clubs. Take your pick between legendary clubs such as KU DE TA and Potato Head or try something new. We love Cafe Del Mar on the edge of Seminyak where Canggu begins and we also recommend Finn’s Beach Club boasting no less than 9(!!!) swimming pools.

Afternoon tea

Not something you would think of first when going on holiday on a tropical island but Seminyak is home to a fabulous tea house called Biku located on the Petitenget Strip. Another secret place for a delightful afternoon tea is in the garden (Le Jardins) of Metis in Petitenget. Yummy sweets, homebaked pies and hearty snacks to go with your tea and champagne – it’s not to be missed when you’re out with the girls!

Spa time

Another thing that makes Seminyak so heavenly are the spas. Us girls love to get pampered from head to toe and in Seminyak you can make this happen without breaking the bank. You can even get a professional spa therapist to come over to the villa if you wish. Go for a relaxing traditional Balinese massage or get a great hair cut at Rob Peetoom Spa. Get your nail done at Think Pink Nails or lose track of time at Prana Spa. Flower baths, reflexology, cream baths, facials, ahhh, life is just too good at the spa in Seminyak. You will never, ever get enough. Spoil yourself while you can and get a treatment every day.

Dress up and dance

If not lounging by the poolside of your private villa. If not shopping, relaxing at the spa or chilling out on the beach, you will be dancing! Seminyak shows another side of herself at night with amazing nightclubs and epic parties. La Favela, Red Carpet Champagne Bar, Da Maria, Mexicola, they are must-visits! Not to forget the amazing parties at Seminyak’s beach clubs with international DJs and the best cocktails. Check their event calendars to make sure you won’t miss out on spectacular events.

The beach in Seminyak is ideal for surfing. Advanced surfers will have a great time riding waves but it’s also a great place for beginners. There are plenty of surf schools but you can also just rent a surfboard and paddle out to sea. Double Six is the best beach for beginners. Do stick around for sunset at La Plancha in the afternoon! Batu Belig Beach is best for more experienced surfers.

Get trimmed at The Blow Bar

While the girls get their manicures and pedicures done, the guys can get their beards trimmed at The Blow Bar on Jalan Kayu Aya (Oberoi Road) in Seminyak. The Blow Bar is one-of-a-kind and a great place to start your evening out. It’s a bar and a spa rolled into one and we love it!
