Seminyak is every girls dream (and most men’s nightmare….lol). The strip of designer boutiques along Jalan Laksmana and Jalan Raya Seminyak are currently the fashion capital of Bali with beautiful, often unique items, at a fraction of the cost in Australia. You can easily spend hours shopping and most of the stores are close to each other.
From elegant to bohemian, free-flowing flimsy to figure hugging glamour, this shopping strip has it all!
I usually find that there is no pressure from the sales assistants and yet they’re there to help if needed, the prices are attractive and the shops are air-conditioned.
Most boutiques are fixed price, but it doesn’t hurt to ask if they’re negotiable. Sometimes, I really do feel like I’ve come away with a “steal”.
Amazing upmarket boutiques include:
Paul Ropp – 39 Jl Raya Seminyak: fun, bright, electric and unique
Uma & Leopold – 44B Jl Raya Seminyak: great colours, silhouettes and cool accessories
Magali Pascal – 177 Jl Laksmana: edgy, chic, young and glamorous
Lulu Yasmine – 100 Jl Laksmana: sophisticated, feminine, unique standout items
Lily Jean – 102 Jl Laksmana: for sexy statement pieces
Mist – 42 Jl Raya Seminyak : for flowy, pastal kaftans
Niconico Intimo – 12 Jl Raya Seminyak: for intimate ensembles and swimwear
There are many more boutiques for you to see, but I have to leave a few surprises for you….
For bargains, head to Seminyak Square for el cheapo sunglasses, beads, bangles, big earrings, scarves and sandals. If you need a refreshing beverage or lunch, head into one of the little cafes there for some brief respite.
Hint 1: Early morning shopping means a special “morning price” and you will beat the heat.
Hint 2: For a little after-shop care, treat your feet to a quick “foot rejuvenation” at one of the many spa salons before heading back with your purchases.
Happy shopping! Xx
