The Island and province of Bali, Indonesia is truly a small paradise on earth. More specifically, Seminyak. This place, over the past decade, from its humble beginning has risen to become one of Bali’s most upscale and sophisticated beach resort areas. However, even with its rapid rise in popularity, Seminyak still happens to come a distant second compared to the more famous locations such as Ubud. This article will seek to inform you on some of the many must visit places while in Bali and the villas in Bali where one can stay at during this period.
Herein below we will start with a list of the top 5 things to do when you find yourself in this part of the world:
1. SEMINYAK BEACH
This beach is found in Bali’s southern region, south of Umalas and north of Kuta, on the west coast. During sunlight hours it happens to be rather quiet. This beach consists of 3 adjoining coastal strips known as Pantai Arjuna, Batubelig Beach (which is home to the famous Mozaic Beach Club) and Petitenget Beach.
2. POTATO HEAD BEACH CLUB
While still on the topic of Seminyak Beach, if you find yourself at this beach you will need to ensure you checkout this awesome beach club. A little bit on the expensive side for Bali, the vibes, drinks and food at Potato Head are well worth it. It gets crazy busy though so you should ensure you get there early to get a good spot and aim for being in the shade.
3. FOURTEEN ROSES AYUNG SPA
Our next advised location is an open air spa in the middle of the courtyard at the Fourteen Roses Hotel. This place is quite cheap, extremely relaxing and very authentic. The cream bath they offer happen to be one of their main attractions and is one of a kind. It is usually accompanied by a thorough coconut oil scalp massage.
4. PETITENGET TEMPLE
This temple is commonly referred to as “Pura Petitenget” by the locals. It happens to be the only central cultural landmark the Seminyak region has to offer. Its 210 day festive anniversaries bring this location to life and is a must see.
5. TOTEM ROOM CHALLENGE
This escape room challenge is perfect for you who are looking for a fun indoor activity. You and your significant other, or a group of 6 friends can enjoy one hour of this fun indoor activity. This is a room designed with puzzles that players need to work together and solve in order to finish the game and eventually escape the room.
The last thing we’ll look at is a few of the nice villas in Bali you should try out when there:-
Right across the street from Sarong Restaurant and a walking distance from Potato Head. It is elegant with a refined finish and is not as pricey as you would think.
– KAMIL VILLAS:
This is an affordable private villa which is found in the Drupadi region and is a fifteen minute walk from Legian beach and the Carrefour Plaza in Kuta.
– VILLA JABALI:
This villa is perfect for those travelling in large groups that want to stick together. A little pricier than the earlier mentioned locations but perfect for accommodating a large family and friends
