Seminyak is Bali’s party scene. It’s a fun beach town buzzing with restaurants, boutiques, bars and beach clubs. If you want to experience the action, I definitely recommend visiting Seminyak. It has an entirely different feel from Ubud and it’s good to experience both. My Seminyak list includes these trendy spots: Potato Head Beach Club, Ku De Ta, Motel Mexicola, La Plancha Beach Bar, Sarong restaurant, and the W hotel.
W RESORT & SPA SEMINYAK
I stayed a few nights at the W Resort and Spa in the heart of Seminyak. Located right on the beach and next to the popular Potato Head Beach Club, the W has an exciting energy and is the perfect place to stay to be in the heart of all the action. It was a nice change of pace after relaxing in Ubud for a few days. I stayed there during the W’s 5-year anniversary party and danced under the stars and fireworks at the Woobar. I got my party fix in, but also had time to relax and enjoy the resort’s amenities. Each morning I enjoyed their amazing breakfast buffet, and during the day I split my time relaxing by the resort pool and the beach. The hotel has a beautiful spa offering a wide variety of treatments and spa amenities. My days were relaxing and at night I ventured out in Seminyak for dinner and drinks. Most places are conveniently walking distance from the W. If you don’t feel like venturing out of the hotel, the W Woobar is a great place to have food and drinks right on the beach. The W is definitely a hotspot and is the perfect place to stay for a great Seminyak experience.
