Seminyak is a great place to get away from it all. Its the perfect destination regardless of who you are going with – a girls weekend, a family getaway or break from the kids. By day Seminyak is a humming place with beautiful beaches, funky shopping and amazingly good coffee! At night there are unlimited opinions ranging from dance parties to quiet restaurants on the beach. Bali is known for its sunshine, happy people, artist flair and delicious food and all this comes together perfectly in Seminyak. If you are based in Asia it is an easy place to get to with cheap taxi’s readily available on arrival to get you to your accommodation.
