The list: Seminyak, Bali

Not an exhaustive list, just the places I’ve come across that are worth writing down.

Anantara Seminyak Resort and Spa
The loveliest beach hotel I’ve ever stayed in by a long way. We got a sweet deal through Mr and Mrs Smith and enjoyed two days of the high life. The breakfast was incredible, with the opportunity to order off the menu AND go to town on the buffet. The buffet included delicious renditions of Indonesian favourites which helped me tick off a number of foods I was hoping to eat (the kolak was a highlight).

La Lucciola
A Seminyak classic – I’m not telling you anything you won’t read in any guidebook or hear from a friend. This restaurant overlooking the ocean is glorious. The breakfast menu runs until midday and is worth getting in early for. Reasonably priced (it’s a pretty fancy place so the dinner bill will most likely run into the millions of rupiah) and delicious.

Desa Seni
Not in Seminyak but close by. I was lucky to be introduced to this place for a yoga class with a friend a couple of days ago. The yoga was truly amazing (open air, surrounded by lush greenery, a great and lovely instructor, humid like crazy – nature’s Bikram). If I were to come back to Bali for a yoga holiday or some heavy duty relaxing, this would be place for me.
