The Area: Seminyak, Bali
Renowned as Bali’s core of all things luxury, upper-class and decadent, Seminyak is where the stylish set chooses to spend holidays on the Indonesian isle. Hugging the Indian Ocean to the west and Kuta to the south, the beach town is in the thick of all that the tourist hub has to offer while presenting a more refined experience for visitors. Classy day spas sit side-by-side with fashion boutiques, artisan galleries and handicraft merchants, while by night the area comes to life with a range of fine dining eateries, bars and heady clubs.
The cuisine is another major draw-card of Seminyak, and while it is known as a more upmarket dining destination there are still budget eats to be found. Legendary Indonesian fare can be found at Baku Dapa, while La Lucciola does beachfront Italian fine dining against the sunset as a backdrop. For restaurants with a high-end party atmosphere, Ku De Ta is known for its sleek design and quirky cocktails, while Potato Head must be seen to be believed with its giant installation of painted shutters. Both establishments offer creative cuisine, impressive views and pumping music for celebrations that last into the wee hours on any given night.
