What was once a sleepy seaside village dotted with rice fields Seminyak has in recent years skyrocketed into one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world. Today, Seminyak attracts visitors from all over the globe with its iconic beach clubs, vibrant restaurant scene, great shopping and five-star accommodation options.
Seminyak has an unique style, which is something that neighbouring areas like Legian and Kuta might be seen as lacking. Seminyak attracts a more refined expat and invites to think about sunset cocktails on a rooftop rather than all-night party people at a surf bar. This also means prices in Seminyak tend to be a bit higher than those in more casual neighbourhoods.
If you’re looking to eat and drink, nowhere does it quite like Seminyak. There are great restaurants and they are opening new bars and restaurants almost on a daily basis. Due to its huge popularity, the area has become very densely built, though you might still spot a sliver of rice fields when speeding down the narrow lanes.
Living in Seminyak is all about setting priorities – there are so many restaurants, beach clubs, spas and shops to choose from! Seminyak is a popular place to live all year round.
