Upmarket and uber popular, this buzzing Bali neighbourhood is spilling with cool cafes and hip restaurants, plus plenty of spas for your ooh-and-ahs, cool beach bars, swanky villas and alllll the ritzy resorts. Read on for our Ultimate Guide to Seminyak, Petitenget & beyond…
HIP SEMINYAK GUIDE: Where to eat, stay & play
1. Spend the day at Mrs Sippy
Every Seminyak itinerary needs to begin with one thing: an entire day spent poolside at Mrs Sippy, AKA Bali’s Mediterranean-inspired oasis where Seminyak’s coolest crowds flock to eat, drink and mingle, and take the leap from three Insta-famous diving platforms! After all, Mrs Sippy’s glittering pool is one of the largest lagoon pools in Bali, and days here are best spent in the private cabanas and daybeds, grazing on Mediterranean and wood-fired cuisine, topped off by epic happy hours from the pool bar. Think buttery soft snapper burgers, fresh poké bowls, and pita breads with yummy dips to swap and share, plus all the signature cocktails and slushies you need under the Bali sun. Keep the tropical vibes alive with the Litchi Tiki cocktail or the Sippy Frosè, and stick around until late for Mrs Sippy’s regular roster of iconic pool parties. We’re talking international headliners, resident DJs and live bands too. If there’s one thing to tick off your Seminyak bucket list, this is it.
Mrs Sippy Bali, Jl Taman Ganesha, Gang Gagak 8, Seminyak, p. +62 821 4500 1007, [email protected]; Open daily 10am – 9pm.

SO much more than just a gorgeous café, KYND is a community of earth-conscious foodies serving up plant-based dishes and drinks for people who like to tread lightly.

Perk up your morning with delish coffee, a designer brekkie or pressed juices, and that’s all before lunch. Expect a surprise mantra with your coffee – fortune cookie-style wise words delivered with every caffeine hit. Sea Circus also over-delivers with its food options – and after a boozy night out (it is Seminyak after all), you might also need to try the Sin City Hangover Happy Meals.
Sea Circus, Jl Kayu Aya No. 22, Seminyak, p. +62 821 4789 7995; Open daily 7.30am – 10pm.

A firm fave on the main drag through Petitenget, Pison is all about good coffee in gorgeous, rustic-style surroundings (we LOVE the antique tiled floors). For the food, a full cache of café style brekkie, lunch and dinner options both Asian and Western are the order of the day. After dark, keep an eye out for a live music session here, which always draws a happening crowd. Psst… you can also find Pison in Ubud!

Fresh white walls, indoor palm trees and pineapples on every table – yep this place is a ‘grammer’s dream spot.

TOP 10 BEST RESTAURANTS IN SEMINYAK
Where to wine & dine in style
It’s a hard task to choose only a few of our faves, as Seminyak has more hot new restaurants opening each week than there are sarongs to buy in Bali. So here’s a few that stand the test of time, and for the newest cool kids on the foodie block, book into to any of our Hot New Tables featured here, or check out our full list of Seminyak’s best restaurants for any occasion.
1. Da Maria
A taste of the Capri coast right here in Bali, Da Maria is the ultra hip Italian restaurant on the Seminyak strip that knows just how to feed our pizza lust. The brainchild of Aussie restaurateur Maurice Terzini, this eye-catching lunch and dinner spot boasts amazing pizzas and some of the coolest cocktail creations in the ‘hood – not to mention some of the hottest parties around.
Da Maria, Jl Petitenget No. 170, Seminyak, p. +62 361 934 8523 / +62 811 385 9666; Open daily from 5pm.
2. Motel Mexicola
Motel Mexicola is without doubt the hottest hombre on the Seminyak block. Everybody loves the 1960s Acupulco retro stylin’ at this mexican-inspired party pad of bright neon and tasty delights – the wall murals are divine and the food is muy delicioso. Chef Steven Skelly is the real deal and he serves up some tasty traditional Mexican food designed to share with your crew. You’ll think you’ve gone to tequila heaven when you check out the bar (uno, dos, tres… VAMOS!) But us, we especially love the tunes and getting our groove on the dance floor after dinner – margarita in hand, gracias!
Motel Mexicola, Jl Kayu Jati No. 9x, Petitenget, Seminyak, p. + 62 361 736 688; Open daily from 11am.
3. La Lucciola
Seminyak’s original, simplest and possibly most loved beachfront institution. It’s a little bit of ‘old-Bali’ in the best way possible, before high-tech and high-stylin’ took over. Here’s where you’d head for Mediterranean fare and a huge selection of wine. It’s impossible not to love “La Looch”, with its always amazing service, legendary food and excellent views. We love that it’s potentially Seminyak’s only place with no wi-fi – just like Bali used to be.
La Lucciola, Pantai Petitenget (next to Petitenget Temple), Seminyak, p. +62 361 730 838 / +62 819 0102 5999, e. [email protected]; Open daily from 9am.
4. Si Jin
A modern steakhouse with a Korean twist, this cosy and oh-so sophisticated steakhouse had us at premium cuts and five-star flair. Trust us when we say you’ll also want to try the Korean namul, made with roasted sesame, crispy garlic rayu and silken tofu (yum!). Or the 30-day aged signature black striploin and the Sumatran rib eye. And did we mention, Si Jin serves sublime cocktails too? Try the tipsy Jamaican and the Ticket to Seoul, and be sure to book ahead, because this place is booked out months in advance…
Si Jin, Jl Lebak Sari No. 18 Petitenget, Kerobokan, p.+62 812 3871 3964, e. [email protected]; Open Tue – Sun from 5pm (by reservation only).
5. Mama San
Anyone who’s anyone absolutely must make a meal at Mama San, not only for the delicious pan-Asian cuisine, but for the buzzing cocktail scene, too. The trendy restaurant – also from chef Will Meyrick – serves up an impressive and vast menu of modern through to simple-sounding Asian bites. But don’t be fooled – the ingredients are only tip-top quality sourced from around the country, and the standard is world-class. Couple that with the upscale interior and you’ve got yourself a resto you’ll never want to leave.
Mama San, Jl Raya Kerobokan No. 135, Seminyak, p. +62 818 0612 6700; Open daily 12pm – 2.30pm & 5.30pm – 10.30pm.
Set inside Bali’s most progressive beach club, Ijen at Potato Head is Indonesia’s first ever restaurant that follows a zero-waste philosophy. Their ocean-fresh seafood is simply sublime, caught locally using a hand-reeling process and classically grilled over an open fire. It’s a remarkable eco-conscious space, with equally exceptional dishes, like Crudo served with fermented green chilli, smoked cream and ink cracker, alongside a range of creative veggie dishes and some of the best local sambals we’ve ever tasted.
Ijen at Potato Head Beach Club, Jl Petitenget No. 51B, p. +62 361 473 7979. e. [email protected]; Open daily 12pm – 10pm.
Seasalt is Seminyak’s ocean and salt-inspired restaurant that we’ve fallen head over flip flops for. It’s located right on the beachfront at Alila Seminyak, with endless ocean views and an ever-present sea breeze as company. Beachy, chic and also home to one of our fave Sunday brunches in Bali, this fabulously fresh seaside restaurant is a must-try, with sublime Japanese-infused dishes. It goes without saying that sundowners here are unparalleled, with exceptional designer cocktails that follow a strict zero-waste concept. Cheers to that!
Seasalt at Alila Seminyak, Jl Taman Ganesha No. 9, Petitenget, Seminyak, p. +62 361 302 1889 / +62 811 386 7544, e. [email protected]; Open daily 7am – 10pm.
A sleek Seminyak icon, Mauri is a stunning and contemporary space serving up modern-Italian creations from award-winning Chef Maurizio Bombini. Open for dinner only, top-shelf local ingredients (mostly homegrown within Mauri’s own rooftop hydroponic garden) are served up in their purest form. Choose from the a la carte or seasonal tasting menus, or prop up at the 5-seat chef’s counter for a truly intimate and private experience. Arrive early and meander up to the mezzanine bar and lounge for some small bites and pre-dinner cocktails served “Aperitivo Style”.
Mauri, Jl Petitenget No. 100, Seminyak, p. +62 817 776 177, e. [email protected]
Like the salt to your tequila or the beans to your burrito, Lacalita is the heart and soul of Seminyak’s Mexican scene. Arguably the original Mexican cantina that kickstarted the island’s love of loaded tacos and mega margaritas, Lacalita (formerly Lacalaca) is a buzzing joint that comes with kick-ass and unpretentious vibes, dishing up modern Mexican food with a twist. Think generous servings of locally sourced fresh ingredients, traditional spices direct from Mexico and home-made tortillas too. The kicker? Awesome and friendly staff who’ll get your Mexican juices flowing. Yup, Lacalita is where it’s at for a true Mexican feast, and you can find them in Canggu too!
Lacalita, Jl Drupadi No. 1, Seminyak, p. +62 822 4731 2218, e. [email protected]; Open daily 11am – 11pm.
10. Sarong (temporarily closed)
The ultimate Seminyak dining destination to please even the most sophisticated of gourmands, may just have to be Sarong (and it’s a tough category to choose!). Celeb Chef Will Meyrick (who also gave us Mama San, Tiger Palm, Hujan Locale and Som Chai) has shaped Sarong into a melting-pot of eastern cuisines, and actively incorporates traditional Asian techniques, like using an Indian tandoor oven and Balinese coconut grill, into his flavourful, elaborate dishes. But note: book before you leave home, or you’ll be disappointed.
Sarong, Jl Petitenget No. 19, Kerobokan, p. +62 361 4737 809; Open daily 6.30pm – midnight.

3. Alila Seminyak
This sprawling, upscale resort really does have it all, with its picture perfect beachfront location and ultra-swanky accommodation. As tempting is it might be to never leave this haven in the heart of Seminyak, it’s well worth checking out the huge program of Alila ‘experiences’, from guided shopping tours in VW vans to morning biking through the rice fields. Otherwise, just munch your days away at Seasalt. Swoon!
Alila Seminyak, Jl Taman Ganesha No. 9 Petitenget, p. +62 361 302 1888, e. [email protected].

Refined, chic and oh-so classy, The Legian is perhaps Seminyak’s most elite resort destination.

There are private butlers and date night dining experiences galore, oceanfront suites and Champagne bars on the beach. You’ll find glamorous indulgences beneath swaying palms, and no matter where you turn, you’ll find unparalleled service and signature touches in every direction. Choose from the elite beachfront Suites, the three-bedroom Beach House, or cross the street to The Club at The Legian Bali where private pool villas are hidden amidst tropical gardens and sparkling swimming pools. Hea-ven.

Famous for its themed parties, the club house day beds, a trendy restaurant and exceptional food. Soak in the buzzin’ vibes while you sip and snap the afternoon away on a poolside bed.

THE BEST BARS & CLUBS IN SEMINYAK
Where to dance and party after dark ’til late
1. La Favela
Bali may have a ton of good after-dark clubs but many of them sadly lack soul or style. Enter La Favela – an eclectic bar and restaurant unlike its other glittering counterparts. Its décor counteracts its name (meaning Brazillian slum), where antique furniture lines its floors, plants seem to be (artfully) overgrown and even old bikes and a Volkswagen van rounds off the appearance. Oh, and more beautiful people than at a Victoria Secret’s casting. The weekend parties here are legendary affairs – almost like fun houseparties even. Highly, highly recommended. Get there.
La Favela, Jl Laksamana Oberoi No. 177X, Seminyak, p. +62 818 0210 0010; Open daily from 7pm.
2. 40 Thieves
Hidden above an inconspicuous little ramen bar at the top end of Petitenget, 40 Thieves is one of Seminyak’s best kept secrets for those in the know. An upstairs New York-meets-old Shanghai speakeasy that’s always packed out ‘til the wee hours, you can expect killer tunes and sensational drinks with an artisanal twist.

Jiwa explains that the hot room allows the muscles to relax, allowing you to stretch deeper into the postures to create flexibility. Whatever it takes!
