The Hotel: The Nibbana Villas
Surround yourself with the stylish crowd during a stay in Seminyak, made all the more exclusive with a private Pool Villa for two people. Be close enough to reach the golden sands of Kuta Beach when the waves start calling while being in close proximity to the restaurants and boutique shops that line the streets of Seminyak. Get a taste of traditional culture in a Villa that combines holiday living with Bali’s welcoming atmosphere.
Take time out in the secluded One- or Four-Bedroom Pool Villas surrounded by lush Balinese garden. Unwind atop the king bed or relax in the living area with sofa seating and plasma TV.

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 neighbouring beaches of Seminyak and Petitenget are characterised by their grey sand, gentle waves and quieter atmosphere than that of Kuta and are well worth a visit to see members of the glitterati mixing with hawkers and families. Take a leisurely stroll down Jalan Seminyak and Jalan Double Six for countless shops, both glass-walled and street-side, for anything from designer knock-offs to printed kaftans, tailor-made clothing and luggage. When feet grow sore indulge in a massage at a premier spa-like Amoaras or Spa Venus Bali and then finish it off with some signature Balinese floral nail art.
The cuisine is another major drawcard 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.
