Luxury Hotels in Seminyak

Bali is a pretty chilled out place. But even by Balinese standards, the beach resort of Seminyak, on the island’s southern shore, is about as relaxed as you can get and still be upright. Compared to the frantic pace of Kuta, just down the road, Seminyak’s beautiful beach, with its long lines of red sun umbrellas, epitomizes the laid-back beach culture that Bali is famous for. The beach’s five star hotels nestle cheek by jowl with traditional temples, craft markets and stunning restaurants with even more incredible views.

You and your family can stay in a luxury hotel, or boutique resort, without breaking the bank. Couples looking for a romantic location to celebrate a special occasion will find plenty of secluded retreats in Seminyak where they can hide away in an environment of pampering and discreet service. For those wanting to enjoy a pool-side drink while taking in glorious ocean views, there are many Seminyak beach accommodation options to suit.

There’s plenty of lavish activities in this part of Bali, from trendy beach clubs to dreamy spas to boutique shops. Here are some of the best things to do and see in Seminyak that will give you a taste of the high life without costing an arm and a leg.

Treat yourself to a Balinese massage

If you’ve never had a Balinese massage before, you’ve been missing out. A Balinese massage is a full-body, deep-tissue treatment, similar to a Thai massage (but less painful!) It encompasses a combination of techniques, such as acupressure and aromatherapy.

Luckily, it’s not hard to find a great spa in Seminyak, but one I highly recommend is Lagoon Spa. This upmarket wellness centre offers many spa packages, including the 4-hour “Unlimited Pleasure” package, including a massage, facial, body scrub, flower bath, and much more!

Party at Potato Head Beach Club

Potato Head Beach Club is one of Bali’s most renowned beach clubs and, undoubtedly, the place to be seen in Seminyak. Potato Head offers two stunning infinity pools with swim-up bars and three restaurants, dishing up local and international fare. It’s open daily from 12 pm to 11 pm, with a happening “all-day party” vibe. The club also offers regular special events, so check the schedule to find out what’s on during your stay.

Enjoy beachfront fine-dining

What makes a gastronomy experience even better? A beachfront location! Seminyak is full of top-quality fine-dining restaurants in pristine spots. KU DE TA is one of the best upscale restaurants, loved for its stylish setting, mouthwatering sharing boards and creative cocktails. Plus, with its open kitchen, you can see the talented chefs in action as they prepare all dishes fresh with local seasonal produce.

Snorkel the reef on a private boat trip

Seminyak is full of tour companies offering snorkelling, diving, and island hopping trips. However, if you’re not a fan of group tours, you can charter a private boat and do all of the above in peace and privacy instead.

Many companies offer private boat charters, including Adventure Scuba Diving Bali. With them, you’ll have a private scuba diving instructor go out to the reef with you and show you the most exclusive diving and snorkelling spots. Plus, they will arrange your lunch on board and include a transfer to and from your luxury hotel in Seminyak.

Purchase a piece of art at Nyaman Gallery

If you have an appreciation for the arts, a visit to Nyaman gallery is a must. This gallery displays the best of Bali’s art scene, with most of the work made by local Balinese and Indonesian artists, many up-and-coming. You’ll find everything here, from oil paintings to ceramics to sculptures. Plus, most pieces are for sale, making it a great place to pick up a new home furnishing while supporting local artists.

Take a private guided trek up Mount Batur

Mount Batur is an active volcano in the centre of the island, with the most recent eruption in 2000. One of the most memorable experiences of any Bali trip is to hike up to the top early in the morning and watch the sunrise from the highest point in Bali. Therefore, if you only leave Seminyak once on your holiday, make it for this trek!

Climbing Mount Batur is only permitted with an experienced guide, and you can hire one for a private, personalized service. The hike is not easy by any means, and you’ll begin the climb in the dark. However, once you reach the top and see that you are above the clouds, the sensation is unbeatable! Plus, afterwards, you can soak your tired muscles in the nearby natural hot springs.
