Could Be The Seminyak Field Guide Available?
We created the Seminyak Field Guide because it had been what we’d have loved before our very first day at Seminyak. it is very easy for lost in the wonderful world of TripAdvisor, 500 pages of travel guides detailing every restaurant that exists and on line noise. If you’d like to know every place to consume and every thing to complete, than this guide most likely isn’t for you. But if like us, you merely want the most readily useful of every thing, than this guide is everything required. We have included only our favourite picks for Seminyak plus map to exhibit you in which you need to be 😉 Think of it like having a best friend it is possible to ask where you can eat each time you have hungry. It still offers you 100percent freedom to complete whatever you want in your Seminyak Holiday, nevertheless get access to the greatest information when you need it.

Seminyak is full of spas, from cheap and cheerful to ultimate luxury. Getting a massage is a pretty common thing to do in Bali, and for good reason, they are amazing. Although I haven’t tried them all yet, I definitely have some favourites. I will continuously update this article as I try out new spas, but for now, here are what I think are the best spas in Seminyak…
Spa At Peppers Seminyak
Spa at Peppers Seminyak is as relaxing as it is beautiful. Situated within the grounds of Peppers Seminyak, you can choose to have certain treatments done in your villa too. We had an amazing traditional Balinese massage that we didn’t want to end. They also offer a large range of other treatments.

Walking into Prana Spa is like walking into a Moroccan Palace with vibrant colours and luxurious furnishings. We loved our entire experience here, from the surrounds to the massage. They also have yoga classes here too.
Photo Credit: AMO Spa
AMO spa is a great spa to go to if you are looking for something really nice yet not super luxurious. They also have a heavy focus on beauty treatments too. We got the AMO scrub which involved a really nice scrub, body mask, massage which was all lovely, but then it finishes with bursts of water from the ceiling whilst you lay there which was all a little too much for me. Next time I’d probably keep things simple and stick to the massage
Anantara Seminyak Spa
A beautiful spa located within Anantara Seminyak, although you don’t need to be staying here to visit the spa. We had the Anantara Signature Massage here and it was really calming in a beautiful environment.

Espace is another nice spa but on the cheaper side in Seminyak. We tried the four hand massage… do I need to say more? Honestly this was amazing albeit a little intense.
Seminyak is one of the most popular areas to stay in Bali. Brimming with delicious restaurants, beach bars, boutique shops, beaches and not to far from the Airport, it’s easy to see why. All this brings the crowds, so on the other side expect lots of tourists and busy streets. That’s not to say that you can’t find your little piece of tranquility in Seminyak, and one of the best ways to do this is through the Seminyak accommodation that you choose. So figuring out where to stay in Seminyak is an important part of planning your holiday to Bali, to make sure you get the best Bali experience. Our stays in Seminyak have been fun and memorable, and we wanted to share everything we know from personal experience and extensive research to help you decide on the best place to stay in Seminyak.

Hotels In Seminyak Under $200/night
Where to stay in Seminyak? Lets get oriented.
Here are a few things to help you get oriented to Seminyak, so when you look at a map of where your hotel is, you know whats directly around you.
Seminyak sits in between Legian (south of Seminyak) and Canggu (north of Seminyak).
Petitenget is an area of Seminyak that is more in the north and has some great restaurants and boutique shops. This is the area where Potato Head Beach Club and the W Hotel is situated.
Jalan Kayu Ayu (otherwise known as Laksmana) is one of the main streets in Seminyak lined with restaurants and boutique shops, however it is more inland and not right near the beach.
The southern area of Seminyak directly borders Legian, around the area of La Plancha beach bar and Double Six Beach. This area expectedly has more of a ‘Legian’ vibe than other parts of Seminyak, which isn’t a bad thing, just different.
And the area lining the beach, depending where exactly, may not be as close to the main shops and restaurants, but is obviously the easiest place to stay to access the beach.
Booking Accommodation In Seminyak
We love using Agoda as they have a great range of properties in Bali at competitive prices.
Booking.com is another great option, one of our favourite ways to book accommodation.

Absolute Splurge: Luxury Accommodation In Seminyak
There are so many amazing places to stay in Bali, and Seminyak is no exception. We look for hotels in a great location, with great design and service. Here our our favourite picks for luxury accommodation in Seminyak.
Anantara Seminyak | from $314 AUD
Anantara Seminyak is a boutique hotel with only 60 rooms, perfect for couples. The rooms are absolutely massive (from 80 m2) and feel so luxurious with their marble and wood finishes. Oh, not to mention it’s right on Seminyak beach, the views over the beach are amazing and don’t even get me started about sunset. Anantara Seminyak also have a great spa and rooftop restaurant/bar, MoonLite Kitchen and Bar.
Alila Seminyak | from $263 AUD

Although we haven’t yet stayed at Alila’s Seminyak hotel, we have absolutely loved staying with Alila in Ubud and Manggis. Alila is a brand we love and Alila Seminyak is their newest Bali hotel. It looks amazing and I’m in love with the minimal design. One thing I admire is that the hotel was designed and built to minimise the environmental impact.
Peppers Seminyak | from $620 AUD
Peppers Seminyak is a villa/hotel hybrid, combining the best of both worlds in Seminyak. With 48 villas ranging from 1 through to 5 bedrooms, and combining this with resort facilities such as a restaurant, gym, spa and pool (all villas have their own pool too!), leads to an unforgettable stay. We were blown away when we arrived and walked into our villa… even the door’s beautiful
W Hotel | from $482 AUD

A hotel we are yet to stay in, but an obvious pick to recommend. The hotel is beautiful with a huge pool area, bars, restaurants, uniquely designed rooms and great dining.
The Legian | from $889 AUD

The Legian is an iconic hotel, but don’t be fooled by the name, it’s actually in Seminyak. And it’s in a great location in Seminyak, right on the beach and also near shops, restaurants and beach clubs. A beautiful 5 star hotel that comes well reviewed.
The Samaya | from $771 AUD

The Samaya is another 5 star hotel right on the beach and with shops, restaurants and beach clubs within walking distance. The Samaya is unique in that they only have pool villas. They also have a great restaurant where you can sit almost on the beach.
Luxe For Less
Courtyard By Marriott Seminyak | from $280 AUD
Courtyard By Marriott Seminyak is a great hotel for groups of friends, young couples and families. It’s a really inviting and fun hotel, with a great pool area, and in between the beach and the main road for shops.
U Paasha | from $205 AUD
We loved our stay at U Paasha, with a great location, open spacious room and great rooftop pool. We also thought their idea of 24 hour check-in/check-out times were great and flexible. Basically if you check in at 6pm you can check out at 6pm.
Maca Villas & Spa | from $277 AUD

We first discovered Maca Villas & Spa by visiting Ippolito Speciality Coffee which is located within the Mase Kitchen Restaurant, the restaurant linked to the Maca Villas & Spa. We loved our breakfast and coffee here, so that would be a nice addition to the beautiful villas. Although a little isolated, they offer a free shuttle service.
Hotels In Seminyak For Under $200/night
There are still lots of good options for under $200/night in Seminyak, but here are our favourite picks:
IZE Seminyak | from $120 AUD
IZE Seminyak looks like a hotel providing great value for money. In a great location, particularly for restaurants and shops, and with a simple modern design.
Four Points by Sheraton Bali Seminyak |
Located in a quieter part of Seminyak, stay here if you want to be in Seminyak but further away from the main area. A nicely designed hotel and rooms.
L Hotel Seminyak | from $102 AUD
The L Hotel Seminyak is in a quieter area of Seminyak, although still on a busy road. The design is aimed at luxury, albeit a little over the top at times. Still, it seems to provide good value for money.
Amadea Resort & Villas Seminyak |
Although the rooms are quite simple, the location is great, particularly for access to food and shopping. It also comes quite well reviewed.
We will continually updating this post with any new places we stay and love, to make sure we are recommending the best Seminyak Accommodation.
