SEMINYAK

Seminyak is Kuta’s cooler, more mature sibling. As a part of South Bali’s developed tourist sprawl, the neighborhood has defined itself as the island’s capital for trendy restaurants, clubs (many of them beach clubs), and boutique designer labels. If you’ve got money to burn and you have a taste for the finer things in life, then Seminyak will probably appeal to you.
