Definitely the hippest spot on Bali, Seminyak draws creative expats from around the world, who’ve chosen to escape the daily grind to run quirky independent boutiques, organic cafes and yoga studios. As a result, the area has a Westernised feel, and tends to attract a more sophisticated and moneyed crowd than its hard-partying neighbour Kuta. It’s the epitome of hippie luxe – think acai bowls, designer kaftans and an impressive number of great-quality spas and outdoorsy things to do, plus a buzzy, ever-changing bar and dining scene.
When it comes to places to stay, you’re far more likely to find smaller boutique establishments than big name chains here, with luxury and design taking the place of the all-too-often drab, beige, identikit hotel rooms found in such places. And unlike some other parts of the island, you can still find plenty of more affordable options to choose from too.
