Seminyak - Uptown Bali, dining and nightspots

 

Seminyak is a beach town in South Bali.

The next town north of Legian, Seminyak is more upmarket with many high-end restaurants and bars.
The atmosphere is much more sophisticated and laid-back than Kuta, and the beach in particular is quieter during the day.
Seminyak is also the high end spa and boutique shopping capital of Bali.

Seminyak Beach and Petitenget Beach is a continuous expanse of grey sand stretching in both directions as far as the eye can see.
To the south it becomes Legian Beach and then Kuta Beach, but is noticeably quieter than both. The sunsets here are famous,

Easy access points to the beach are at the end of Jalan Dhyana Pura,
and from the large public car park between Petitenget Temple and La Luciola restaurant.

Pura Petitenget at the beachside off Jl Petitenget is a compact, pretty Balinese temple, which is known for particularly spectacular beach-side ceremonies. There has been a temple here since at least the 16th century, and 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 between Pura Uluwatu and Pura Tanah Lot.

Spas, massage and other treatments

Seminyak is the high-end spa capital of Bali.
Your spa experience here will be one of great luxury in a sophisticated setting.
You pay up for all of that of course, but the prices are still 50% or more cheaper than you would pay in a western country.
A little bit of surfing goes on here, but it is not as good as off Legian and Kuta beaches to the south, or at Canggu to the north.

Seminyak is the centre in Bali for hip and inventive fashion boutiques,
other designer stores and art studios. A good starting point for any shopper would be the legion of small boutiques
and designer stores on Jalan Laksmana.

 

Quality dining and Nightlife

Over the past 10 years, Seminyak has developed a world-class dining scene.
If you want to splurge on one very special dinner while you are in Bali,
look no further than the higher end options in Seminyak.
Prices are high by Bali standards but on an international scale still good value for the highest quality of food and eating environment.
The clientele is demanding here and the turnover of restaurants quite high,
so those that make it and stick around are invariably very good.
