Good to know about Seminyak!
Seminyak is more upmarket. The atmosphere is much more laid-back than Kuta, and the beach in particular is quieter during the day. Seminyak is also the spa & boutique shopping capital of Bali.
Seminyak is one of the most popular areas to stay in Bali. Brimming with delicious restaurants, beach bars, boutique shops, beaches and not to far from the Airport, it’s easy to see why. All this brings the crowds, so on the other side expect lots of tourists and busy streets.
That’s not to say that you can’t find your little piece of tranquility in Seminyak, and one of the best ways to do this is to stay alittle bit away from Jalan Kayu Aya, like our Villa Carissa,
where it's is located.
How to go to Seminyak?
Seminyak is part of the main west coast conurbation in South Bali and it can get very congested with traffic. There are 2 main routes in. From Kuta & Legian, Jalan Legian runs parallel with the beach and at its western limit, becomes Jalan Seminyak. If at all possible try to avoid this road though, and take instead the eastern bypass called Jalan Sunset. This is almost invariably the quicker route from Kuta and Legian into Seminyak, although it is actually further in distance. Most hotels do provide a shuttle service. A prepaid taxi from the airport to Seminyak costs a fixed Rp 60,000. Trips to or from Kuta cost around Rp 30,000 and from Legian about Rp 15,000. (At odd hours, you may find yourself being asked to pay significantly more. There is room to negotiate down). Please note that prices may be changed without prior notice.
If arriving from the Gili islands, the closest port would be located in Benoa; 30 minutes drive to the South-East. As of Sep 2017; travelling on the Patagonia Xpress from Gili Air, a free shuttle service to any location surrounding Seminyak/Kuta/Denpasar was available. It took around 1 hour to arrive at the accommodation due to the number of drop-offs to other passenger's locations.
What to see in Seminyak?
Seminyak Beach and Petitenget Beach
is a continuous expanse of grey sand stretching in both directions as far as the eye can see. To the south it becomes Legian Beach and then Kuta Beach, but is noticeably quieter than both. The sunsets here are very famous, and opportunites abound to mix with the glitterati who frequent the high end beach front estalilshments such as Ku De Ta. Easy access points to the beach are at the end of Jalan Dhyana Pura, and from the large public car park (Rp 2,000) between Petitenget Temple and La Luciola restaurant.
- Pura Petitenget at the beachside off Jl Petitenget is a compact, pretty Balinese temple, which is known for particularly spectacular beach-side ceremonies. There has been a temple here since at least the 16th century, and although this is not one of the key 9 directional temples of Bali, it is an important link in the series of west coast temples between Pura Uluwatu and Pura Tanah Lot.
- Seminyak Beach, at Jalan Raya Seminyak. Seminyak Beach is a beautiful white sandy beach situated in north of Legian Beach. The white sand stretch 3 km from Tuban Area has made it as a fascination for tourist to visit this place. Seminyak Beach is favored by the great wave that is ideally for surfing adventures hence many surfers visit this beach to conquer the waves and enjoy the surf adventures. This beach is also featured by beautiful panorama to the Indian Ocean, the wide white sand, complete public facilities, the world class hotels, international restaurant and more.

Volcano trekking in Bali
Watching the sunrise from Mount Batur is an incredible experience. The hike will take approximately 2 hours uphill and another 2.5 hours downhill, but it’s well worth it. You will also have to wake up in the middle of the night at 2AM to start your journey and catch the sunrise on time. It’s best to book a tour ahead of time.
