We love Seminyak and this is still a wonderful place to stay but lots of new villas and restaurants have moved a lot further north to Canggu and Berawa - so most recommendations will be in these areas. We also love Uluwatu for its cliff top accommodation and restaurants as well as amazing surf and clear blue water.
Jam's pick is Dea Potato Head
A new venture from Potato Head and right on the beach, close to all of the Seminyak action.
Other notable hotels in Seminyak
If a hotel isn't your thing there are hundreds of amazing villa rentals out there. Check out the below links or head to Airbnb.

Try these places to pick up a travel souvenir or two - Mrs Lovejoy in Canggu for some lovely basics, homewares Bungalow Living , Souq (online with many treasures made in Bali), Magali Pascal , Kim Soo for homewares & a lovely cafe , Cove Island Essentials and Bali Boat Shed.
We also recommend travelling down Jalan Kunti II, off Jalan Sunset - follow this road along to find furniture, baskets, antiques and off the beaten track items for a fraction of the price. Happy Hunting!!
SO MUCH TO DO!
A surf lesson at Old Mans, A trip to Ubud for a sound healing at Pyramids of Chi.
Get Pampered at Prana Spa, Body Works, or Amo , nothing quite like a cream bath, trust us!
Want to explore around Bali? A boat to visit Lembongin or the Gili islands is a must if you have time or go paddle boarding in the flat bay of Sanur. Snorkelling and diving is also popular near Nusa Dua. Sunset lovers - Have a sunset drink on the Bukit at Ulu cliff house.
