If you were thinking of hitting Bali for the winter months, but wanted something more laid back than the party spots such as Kuta and Legian, then Seminyak is definitely the place for you. Often touted as Kuta’s grown up, more sophisticated neighbor, Seminyak is the perfect place for those who would like to experience more of Bali’s culture and natural beauty while enjoying the best amenities. Here are some reasons why you should choose Seminyak on your next trip.
Seminyak is conveniently located 9km from the airport and its central location will give you access to nearly everything on the island. And while Seminyak is much calmer than its neighboring locations, it still has a great nightlife and is near tons of trendy upper end night spots you can choose from. If you want to get in the middle of the action, then you’re still only 10 minutes from hot spots like Legian.
You’ll also be close to tons of great high end and casual dining options if you decide to stay there. Also, if you’re into watersports, you can always head up north to Canggu to enjoy the pristine beaches and great waves.
Speaking of waves, Seminyak is the ultimate surfer’s dream. Seminyak’s golden sand beaches go for miles and offer some of the best surfing conditions known to man. Since Kuta’s, Legian’s and Seminyak’s beaches are all interconnected, Seminyak’s unique location allows you to go from there all the way down to Kuta just by taking a stroll down the beach.
The Stunning Sunsets
Bali is well known for its natural beauty and Seminyak is no different. If you happen to be on the beach at around 6 in the afternoon, you’ll have the chance to experience one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. You could then take a stroll on the beach, get a surfboard or just rent a beach chair and enjoy the view. Sundays are particularly busy since this is an off day for most workers on the island, so if you want to get a taste of the local life while enjoying the beautiful scenery, this is the perfect time to go.
In addition to its stunning natural beauty, Seminyak boasts some of the most beautiful accommodations the island has to offer. If you’re looking for a hotel Seminyak, Hotel Indigo, which is one of the newest additions to the island, is perfect for people of all ages. It has everything from a shallow pond for the kids to your own personal lagoon surrounded by coconut palms and frangipani trees. Whether you want to relax at one of the country’s finest spas, lounge in a sparkling infinity pool or stay at one of the world’s more exclusive resorts, Seminyak has something for you.
So if you still didn’t know where to go on your next trip to Bali, now you do. If you’re looking for a little bit of the nightlife, but still want a taste of the authentic Bali experience, Seminyak is the place to go.
