Deemed as Bali’s hippest district, you’ll find Seminyak to be a little more laid-back than Kuta, with something for everyone, whether here with family, on a romantic getaway or a solo escape – there are beaches if you want to relax and bask in amazing sunsets, but also a multitude of party spots if you’re here to dance on top of tables.

Everyone who’s been to Bali is very likely to brag about their time in Seminyak and recommend you to drop by when visiting. Apparently, there seems to be “sooo many things to do” in this cool and hip neighbourhood located on the south coast of the island.

Now, ask these same people what’s there to do and chances are you’ll be directed to the ever-so-popular spots (ahem, like Potato Head?). The area is vast, covering a multitude of streets, each with a different vibe, so how on earth are you supposed to see the best of it?! If you’re looking for a good mix of iconic spots and hidden gems, then you’ll love taking a look at this list of top things to do in Seminyak with trendy shops, chic restaurants, hipster cafes and other fun attractions even a Bali-connoisseur might not have heard of!

Meat-lovers step into heaven at Warung Nia

There are few things most of us like in life – Sundays, brunch time and a good meaty dish for instance! And you know the best part? Sometimes, you can find places that let you enjoy all of these pleasures! One of them is Warung Nia. No matter the day of the week, this little eatery nestled in Seminyak cooks up some real pork goodness.

Photo Via Sanghun-Kim

Warung Nia is the absolute one when it comes to authentic Balinese pork ribs – cooked low-and-slow, slathered in a sweet and spicy sauce.  Mouth watering yet? Us, too. Serious porkers, I can guarantee you that all you’ll want to do once served is grab your napkin, dig your teeth and stuff your face!

And not only is it delicious but also budget-friendly so it’s an absolute steal if you ask me.

There’s a good reason why people are often seen queuing up for a seat at the restaurant – and the reason is that it does it so damn well! They do it so well that those who have dined in want to get their hands dirty and learn Warung Nia’s secret recipes!

Lucky for them as they can sign up for the restaurant’s Balinese cooking class which goes for 50% off when you book through their Facebook Page! You get to be tutored by local chefs who are experts when it comes to Balinese spices and herbs.

Get picked up from your stay and immerse in culture by joining in for their authentic local market tour followed by a morning snack, cooking class and lunch. Your experience ends with a certificate of participation and a recipe book so that you can replicate delectable Balinese dishes at home!

Lively places to chill all day long

Think pool, cocktails and a whole lot of fun (some are beachfront too)!

1. Bask in unobstructed views of the whole of Seminyak – Above Rooftop Restaurant & Bar

There’s something magical about sunsets in Bali and Seminyak sees no shortage of sunset bars; most of them are located smack bang on the beach itself with incredible ocean views.

Sounds like paradise, right? However, these are also probably the most crowded spots in the area – especially when it’s time for the sun to come down (I have seen myself fighting over bean bags at Double Six Beach before and it wasn’t pleasant).

An alternative (and a better one), is to settle down at Above Rooftop Restaurant & Bar located at Four Points by Sheraton Bali, Seminyak. This is where you’ll get to sip proper cocktails (not the diluted ones that are offered at most beach bars). On some evenings, they even have a live music band to add up to the amazing atmosphere and unobstructed views of the neighbourhood from their open-deck.

Read More: 18 Beach clubs in Bali with great swimming pool and free entry!

Probably one of the best places to watch the sunset, Mano Beach House is a charming little beach club on the coastline of Petitenget Beach. Stepping into this beach club is almost like transporting yourself back in time, to the days when everything was made of wood and straw. It’s incredibly endearing!

Preaching the slow life, this is another spot that is definitely more beach than club! With beachfront access for when you want things a little salty, and a cute rustic style pool for when you want to cool off without the waves, Mano Beach House definitely know how to take it easy.

Photo Via Chocute, Robin_honda_bali

And while beaches around Bali (especially Double Six Beach in Seminyak) can get overwhelming, the on-beach SugarSand lets you take in sunset with far fewer crowds (no more fighting for bean bags and long waiting hours for your drinks to come).

Slip off your shoes and sink your feet in the pool as your table gets decorated with sumptuous Japanese-inspired dishes. From land to sea, you can be sure that your food is freshly harvested and caught.

And with the salty breeze and gentle soothing sound of the waves crashing on the shore, we promise you’re in for a sensual dining experience. It is a venue that is all the while upscale, casual, convivial as well as romantic.

However if you ask us, their open-air upper deck lounge sets the bar way up high when it comes to endless views. Grab a few tropical cocktails from their toes-in-the-sand beach bar, order their special ceviche, sit back, relax and simply take in the stunning panorama lying before you!

9. Your affordable spa option – Sicilia Spa

We all love bustling Bali, but sometimes you just want to get away from the noise and the heat. Well, why not escape into a zen world right in town?

Sicilia Spa has a small garden with a mini waterfall, which has a calming effect as you listen to the soft flow of the water while enjoying your treatment. You wouldn’t imagine that a place so tiny in the middle of a busy street could be so calm and serene.

Your eyes and ears won’t be the only ones that get pampered here, since the spa provides guests with head-to-toe services fit for royalty. Everything from foot spas and facials to body massages are available, and guess what – the traditional massage is only priced at Rp. 100,000 (approximately USD $7), and you even get to choose your massage oil! And yes, there is a private shower in each treatment room too.

One of us checked out their cream hairbath, facial and massage and it was a very relaxing experience. This might not be the place to go if you have a serious back issue and need a very skilled therapist to treat it, but if you just need a refreshing break that’s value-for-money, this is a good option!

It may seem like a quiet world of its own, but the spa is located just a short walking distance from the Double Six Beach and popular restaurants. A hearty meal right after the best massage ever? Sounds like perfection to us!

P.S. You can even get a free hotel pick up in Seminyak if you book one of their packages for a minimum of 2 people!

16. Breakfast in a glasshouse never tasted so good – Kilo Kitchen Bali

Breakfast didn’t earn its ‘most important meal of the day’ reputation for nothing, especially when you wolf it down at places like Kilo Bali!

The open-air cafe is distinguished by its unconventional and modern minimalist architecture that challenges the traditional landscape and offers a quiet respite away from all the hustle and bustle.

This cafe is never restful during the day (it attracts big crowds for date nights), but it does not mean that their meals are less appealing during day time.

Kilo Bali serves you the good as from 8am with non-traditional breakfast items too – if you are up for some heavy meals prior to your exploration day (that means you can save up and not have lunch too), you should definitely give a go to their Poke Bowls that are packed with goodness like tuna tartare, salmon, eggs and more!

And why not a Lamb Taco? Joking! We mean Bacon French Toast, but we would not judge you one bit if you chose their Duck Taco for breakfast too 😉 Don’t miss out on their fresh fruit options that come in different versions – chopped in bowls with granola, squeezed in glasses with ice or whole on platters to share!

24. Go on an Indiana Jones-esque adventure – Totem Room Escape Bali

Why play Indiana Jones video games at home when you can actually be the guy in real life?

Step into your adventurer boots at Totem Room Escape, the first and largest room escape game in Indonesia. Here, you and your friends (minimum 2 persons) will be locked in a room and experience a thrilling adventure, as you race against the clock to solve puzzles and find a way out!

This is not just some role-playing game, okay. This is serious business.

Or at least they make you feel like it is – the (jail)room is decorated in all sorts of lifelike ways.

From the tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh to the high-tech vault in Mission Impossible – it’s indeed Mission Impossible to differentiate between reality and fiction! You can also wear costumes to immerse yourself fully into the game.
