With its central location, burgeoning nightlife and accessibility to major tourist attractions, this area is a perfect alternative to Kuta.
To the north of Kuta and Legian, are stylish Seminyak and Canggu. There are no shortage of villas between Seminyak and Canggu luxe villas paired with five-star services and facilities offering you your own private piece of paradise.
Widely recognised as one of Bali’s most popular and upscale areas, Seminyak has earnt itself quite the hip status in recent years. Not so much a well-kept secret nowadays, Seminyak pleases those searching for that extra touch of luxury, offering opulent wellness spas, exclusive resorts and some decadent restaurants and chic fashion boutiques. Situated slightly further along the coast away from the more crowded Kuta and Legian, Seminyak exudes an exclusive air, offering a more handpicked selection of experiences and hangouts than its sister regions, making it a haven for the more refined traveller. That’s not to say that Seminyak doesn’t provide a fun and energetic nightlife; think chic lounges and bars with lively performances and extensive lists of fine cocktails and tantalising drinks. It boasts the typical party atmosphere found in Kuta and Legian, but with an added touch of luxurious sophistication, with many more high-end restaurants and hangouts discovered along its streets.
From the beautiful Seminyak beach boasting mesmerising sunsets and perfect waves for surfing beginners, to some of Bali’s top dining spots and world-class cuisine, as well as the highest concentration of luxury boutique hotels in Bali, Seminyak is the luxurious and trendy option on your Balinese travels.
Located twenty minutes north of Seminyak, Canggu was once an undiscovered retreat that has now blossomed into a quirky and cool coastal community with a major surfer vibe. Ideal for travellers, digital nomads, yoga-lovers and surfers, Canggu is home to plenty of hip hangouts and cafes and with its close proximity to the beach, there’s no wonder it’s grown in popularity. Home to beautifully atmospheric and luxury villas, Canggu offers barefoot luxury at its most divine. There’s something for everyone here, from exquisite wellness spas to backpacker hostels and accomodation suited for every budget. Nestled within rice paddy fields, temples and brimming with the most delicious street food, Canggu exposes you to the very best of Balinese culture whilst still allowing you the sweetness of Western comforts. Famous for its excellent surf with guaranteed waves, expect to see plenty of surfboards as you wander along the beach and be sure to check out the abundance of hip beachfront cafes and boutiques. Embrace the easy-going lifestyle and relaxed hippie atmosphere that Canggu offers to all those who roam its shores. Relax on the beach and do some yoga, hangout at a rooftop pool, take a jewelry making class, visit a local market, join a coworking space or play about in the beautiful rice fields. The enjoyment is endless.
