Things to do in Seminyak
Book a session at Prana for some Ayurvedic therapy or arrange an hour long Thémaé oriental massage at the Body Temple down the road. A Bali spa experience is as divine as the ocean scene beyond its windows. Perfect when you need to unwind, embrace a diverse palette of holistic treatments including rose petal baths and coconut body scrubs.
Petitenget Temple is Seminyak’s most prominent cultural landmark, so take the time to stroll from the beach down to the temple grounds. When you get to the red brick and sandstone building, ascend the dragon staircase up into the vast courtyard where you can gaze upon a number of shrines and small pavilions.
It’s likely you’ll spend most of your time at Seminyak Beach, relaxing beneath one of the colourful umbrellas dotting the endless expanse of golden sand. Lined with luxurious resorts, here you can spend a day picking out jewellery from an array of chic boutiques, dining at an oceanfront hotel or horseback riding along the beach.
Are you looking for a party? Seminyak is known for its beach clubs and bars. Hit up the Jalan Dhyana Pura area to embrace the go-go scene then head to Hu’u for some poolside fun or over to Ku De Ta for some DJ spins. For the more adventurous at heart, there are plenty of outdoor adventures to choose from, like scuba diving and surfing.
