Luxury Beach Resorts in Seminyak / Legian / Kuta

Where you can find trendy shops, cute cafes, sunset at the beach and nightlife

Seminyak is a very popular beach town along the southwest coast of Bali. Well-trodden by those looking for a slice of sandy beach, Seminyak is filled with trendy shops and restaurants, some of Bali’s cutest cafes as well as a good variety of bars and nightclubs. That said, different areas of Seminyak have their own personalities so it can be hard to choose where to stay.

Jalan Kayu Aya or Bali’s Eat Street is a great option for couples, groups of friends and especially if you’re here on an all-girls trip. From here, you can walk right out from your villa to a variety of cafes, restaurants and bars right at your doorstep!

There is also Seminyak Beach and Double Six Beach which are both great for surfing lessons. Explore further and you will find trendy beach clubs at Petitenget and a laid-back atmosphere in dreamy Legian. Dotted with luxury beach resorts, Seminyak makes for an ideal gateway to the other regions of Bali.

Sitting right next is Kuta – one of the best places to visit if you’re here to party and enjoy long nights at the bar or nightclub. There are so many incredible things to do in Kuta including shopping, luxury spas, as well as some amazing local food. For accommodation in Kuta, you will find some great options – many of which have stunning views and some more luxurious than others are located right on the beach.

1. Immerse yourself in the real Bali at The Oberoi Beach Resort, Bali
