Seminyak is well-known as Bali's most fashionable shopping destination and now there's another reason to head straight to the area for some upmarket retail therapy.
Seminyak Village recently opened just behind Seminyak Square on Oberoi Street (Jl. Kayu Aya). This central location makes it ideal for holiday-makers staying in the many private villas and hotels in the surrounding area, especially around the corner along Jl. Kayu Jati.
The bright and airy air-conditioned mall boasts designer fashion boutiques such as Farah Khan, as well as more main stream labels like Bamboo Blonde and Lily Jean.
For foodies, be sure to check out Tiger Palm, Will Meyrick's latest eatery in Bali. Some may already know his other popular restaurants, Mama San and Sarong, so this new addition is something to get excited about.
Serving authentic Malaysian dishes, the restaurant offers both an indoor air-conditioned seating area as well as informal al fresco dining outside where you can watch the world go by.
Take the escalator or lift up to the second floor and you'll find The Marketplace, where cute little kiosks are set up in a relaxed "market" style. Vendors include Bali Towel, Tan Living, The Wedding Shop and more.
If it's pampering you're after, head up to the rooftop to the new Spring spa. Created more as a "social" spa, Spring features a modern and fun interior where clients can chat to one another while enjoying one of their extensive spa treatments.
It's the perfect place to indulge in a manicure or pedicure before hitting one of Seminyak's many hot spots like Motel Mexicola, or to have a relaxing massage and unwind after a busy day of shopping.
We would especially recommend going to Spring around sunset time, where you'll have amazing views from the spa's rooftop location.
You can also get a quality hair cut and/or color at Toni & Guy Essensuals if you're a little wary of trying one of the local salons while on holiday in Bali.
Essensuals recently moved to Seminyak Village from it's previous location above Deus on Jl. Oberoi and the new fit out is even better than the other.
Although a little more high-end than Seminyak Square around the corner, Seminyak Village is still worth a visit even if it's just for lunch or a drink at one of the restaurants or a quick spa treatment to get out of the Bali heat.
Seminyak Village is located just around the corner from Seminyak Square, which is one of the dedicated bus stops on the Kura-Kura Bus route.
Seminyak Square is actually a bus stop on 3 bus lines, namely the Kuta Line, Legian Line and also the Seminyak Line. The fare for all of these lines is just Rp. 20,000 for a single trip and tickets can be bought on the bus or at any of the Ticket Booths.
