Where Is Seminyak?

Seminyak is a popular tourist destination around Bali, Indonesia. It was a separate township at first, but now is another suburb of Kuta. What lures people around here is that there are a lot of high-end residential and commercial developments, shops and lifestyle centers, along with a number of luxury hotels and spas.

True enough, Seminyak is a popular tourist destination, the only problem here is that there is almost no backpacker accommodation. So budget tourists usually stay in nearby suburbs of Legian or Kuta. The choices here for rest and sleep are pretty much villas and high-end hotels. So bring a little more extra if you wish to stay at the heart of the suburb.

What To Look For When Going For A Seminyak Villa

Looking for a place to rest can be a pain when you're in a vacation. If you plan on staying in for the night in a villa, you might want to read along as I've listed a few things to keep in mind:

  • Beware of false advertising. You should always keep this in mind and realize that only the most expensive Seminyak villas are completely private. Some of them share some facilities, while those really cheap ones are simply bungalow clusters. It is suggested that you take a look at the rooms before booking for one.
  • Look for one within your budget with the most amenities. To simply put it, settle for the one with the best value for your money - not just a place to sleep. There are a lot of villas to choose from in Seminyak, hence you should go into a little bit of research before you even come there. Most of these villas have websites that you can look upon. Many of them offer common pools, as well as spas and other relaxation facilities. Always do your homework prior.
  • Check for previous customer reviews. While doing your research, do take note of reviews made by previous customers of the villa you are interested in. Most of the time, they'll give you pretty accurate things of what you should expect, like with the cleanliness of the villa, the room service, the food, and more. You can do this by searching through travel blogs or forums, there are a lot of them in the net.

Some Tips When Staying In Seminyak?

Well first of all, be conscious and use your common sense. Cases of petty crimes are often reported on tourists, even when you're staying on a villa or a hotel. Also, do not get yourself involve in any drug-related agenda, as Indonesia has one of the strictest anti-drug laws in the world.

That aside, simply enjoy yourself. It's also better if you visit there through a travel package, as you will no longer deal with simple problems such as hiring a car or 'what should you visit next?' You'll also be more time efficient as they've already got plans for you.
