The Very Best of Seminyak

91%
Found this guide helpful

I have been travelling to Bali for Business twice a year for 25 years. Seminyak is where I love to stay because it is the mecca of everything great about a holiday in Bali. This will give you a small taste of the best that Seminyak has to offer. I love gorgeous resorts, relaxing spa treatments, great shopping and delicious food. I hope you enjoy these places as much as I have.

Sevegne N's City Tips

  • Being drunk places you at risk in a foreign country. If you are in a group have a sober companion and never ever get on a motorbike in this condition.
  • The Bali International Medical Clinics are the only place I would go if you need a hospital or a doctor.
  • Never carry more money on you than you are prepared to lose or have stolen. It does happen and you need to take care.
  • You can barter in markets but not fixed price shops. Be firm when you are bargaining but if they let you walk away you have gone too low. Don't lose something you love over $1.
  • Always go to a reputable money changer with a No Commission sign, I recommend BIMC. Use a calculator to check before you are familiar with the currency.
  • Always tell the taxi driver to put the meter on. Bluebird taxis often don't do this so avoid them. Taxis are cheap and convenient to use.
  • Don't think to much about what lies underneath the veneer of Bali, enjoy the beautiful resorts, fabulous food, great shopping and indulgent spa treatments.

    While Sardine once sat alone in a rice field the encroaching sprawl has closed it in but thankfully it has lost none of its charm. The food is fresh and delicious and the atmosphere great for a group of friends. Seafood is the speciality and deservedly so.

    I love this place, and it is not strange for me to eat here 3 or 4 times during a trip. Can't go past the Nasi Goreng with the Pavlova for dessert. Make sure you get in early cause the pavlova often sells out. If you feel like a treat indulge in the afternoon tea, it is absolutely delightful. Service is excellent, food spot on and the atmosphere is a world away from the street.

    You will believe you have died and gone to heaven after a Jari Menari massage. There is a huge variation of massage styles in bali from the cheap to the luxurious. Jari Menari sets itself apart because it is the real deal. Aches and pains will be worked through, you will be so relaxed you will fight not to fall asleep cause you just won't want to miss a minute of it. Yes it's more expensive than your beach massage but trust me it will be worth every cent.
