Seminyak is a beach town found on the West Coast of Southern Bali. The next town north of Legian, Seminyak is more upmarket with mostly luxury accommodation and fashionable high-end restaurants and bars. The atmosphere is much more sophisticated and laid-back than other parts of the island, and the beach in particular is fairly quiet during the day. Seminyak is also the high end spa and boutique shopping capital of Bali, and your spa experience here will be one of great luxury in a sophisticated setting. You pay up for all of that of course, but the prices are still at least 50% cheaper than you would pay in a western country.
Over the past 10 years, Seminyak has developed a world-class dining scene. If you want to splurge on one very special dinner while you are in Bali, look no further than the higher end options in Seminyak. Prices are high by Bali standards but on an international scale still good value for the highest quality of food and eating environment. The clientele is demanding here and the turnover of restaurants quite high, so those that make it and stick around are invariably very good.
