We decided to end our Bali trip in Seminyak, which seemed sensical due to its close proximity to the airport. Seminyak is known as a more sophisticated upscale area with hipster bars and boutique shops. Everywhere felt very modern and with that it did lose some of the more traditional Balinese vibe of course therefore felt perfectly placed as an end destination for our trip.
Where we stayed
We booked 2 nights at the Lloyd Inn Bali, at £57 a night. I had decided to book us the Sky Room, totally drawn in by the gorgeous bathtub set up.
Breakfast was included and it was such a treat, there was a great buffet as well as orderable items and everything was insanely delicious. The location is perfect, with a short walk to the beach and lots of restaurants. The photos really speak for themselves with this place, its so damn beautiful!
Where we ate
We ate a couple of times at Warung Yogya, which was probably the cheapest place we ate our whole trip and we ended up eating here a couple of times. It doesn’t look like much from the outside and the menu is simple but it tastes good and is a quick and easy meal.
Yamma Yaa was an Italian we visited and enjoyed some delicious pizzas there. The place was really busy but we managed to get a seat. There was so many good looking dishes on the menu and if we were around longer we definitely would have returned.
On the Juice was a juice bar with a lovely location, right on the beach and a great place to sit during sunset. The juice was delicious and we really enjoyed relaxing for a few hours with some nice chill out music on.
We had some great food at Sacred Ground and they had a really good sounding menu I’d definitely have revisited for. When we visited mid afternoon it was quite empty but the ambience was really relaxed but with a good location for people watching.
We went to Grain for breakfast and it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I loved the whole feel of the restaurant, the staff were so friendly and there was so many amazing items on the menu. An absolute must visit.
What we did
Seminyak is coastal and therefore has plenty of beaches to relax on and walk down. We visited both Double Six and Legian Beach whilst staying in the area. They were quite busy and as a consequence you’ll find lots of people touting things from sunglasses to boat tours but the beaches themselves were nice and cleaner than some we’d come across. As you can imagine sunset is an even busier time as it’s very popular to sit on the beach with a drink as the sun sets.
We did actually have a few more activities planned for Seminyak but unfortunately I had a fall which resulted in a hospitalisation and our trip was very quickly cut short. I’m obviously ok and the hospital that dealt with me was amazing but it did mean our time in Seminyak wasn’t to be enjoyed quite as much as I’d hoped.
