SEMINYAK SQUARE MARKETS

If you’re an avid shopper and seeking a good selection of women’s clothing, you’ll enjoy the markets at Seminyak Square!

image

Unlike many market stalls elsewhere, the Seminyak Square markets have a good array of modern styles and fabrics. Colourful kaftans with and without pompoms, maxi dresses, stylish sarongs, killer kimonos – they’re all there at Seminyak Square markets.

image

A selection of sunglasses, bags and jewellery are also available.

image

Bargaining in markets is normal practice and getting a good price depends largely on one’s bargaining prowess .Having said that, expect to pay a little more than the usual market fare here.  Well worth it for the unique selections though!

image

When you’ve had enough of market shopping, there’s a plethora of fixed price shops opposite and in the surrounding streets.

Address:  Jalan Kayu Aya, Seminyak

Tip:  The Kura Kura bus has a stop at Seminyak Square.  Check their website for details: http://kura2bus.com/

Italian at its best!!

Seminyak Italian Food

image

Italian food lovers will adore the recent addition of “Seminyak Italian Food.” It’s situated on the mezzanine level of the Double-Six (luxury)Hotel.

Here diners have an amazing beach and pool view while they dine.

Exclusively Bali enjoyed lunch here in a comfortable environment where the produce was fresh, the food authentic and the service attentive.

Kreol Kitchen

image

If you’re searching for an intimate and relaxed space with old world charm, then Kreol Kitchen could well be the place

.image

Quirky and vintage in its fittings and decor, this little go-to restaurant on Jalan Drupadi ticks all the boxes.

image

We enjoyed a late breakfast here however the menu is extensive enough to cater to any meal sitting.

image

Overlooking the gently blowing rice paddies and with a background of soothing music, Kreol Kitchen is a little gem tucked away on an often bustling road.

Serious Shopper Alert!

image

Bali can offer a menagerie of shopping: from one-off designer items to market gear!

image

If you’re seeking bargain priced summer and beach fashions including great leather wallets and bags, dress jewellery and shoes, head to the markets at Seminyak (known as Seminyak Flea Markets).  Here you will find a good selection of market type purchases.

image

Although you may pay a little more than Kuta or Legian, the quality and design is often improved and more varied, and still at discount prices.

image

Don’t forget to bring a half empty suitcase to fit in all your purchases.

Happy shopping! Xx

Seminyak Flea Markets

Address:  Oberoi Road, Seminyak

HINT:  It can get rather steamy under the shade cloth market roofing, so call in at La Sicilia, Seminyak located next door for a cool drink after all your fab shopping purchases.

Wrought iron ❤️LOVE…

Over the years, I have often frequented a little wrought iron store in Seminyak, purchasing a variety of items from fruit bowls to candelabras.  They’re always so easy to bring home as they truly are indestructible!

A recent visit however, showed this little shop was now selling the very fashionable coloured wrought iron products.

20140321-160451.jpg

The range included animal figurines, chandeliers (extra small/small/medium/large), peacock chairs, pineapples, candelabras, loveseats, garment accessories, home décor, shelving…  and the list continues.

Multiple colours are available as well as the original black.

These items are listed as being hand-made.  Retail and wholesale prices, on request.

An established Seminyak classic…

THE ROYAL BEACH SEMINYAK

The Royal Beach Seminyak Bali is a member of MGallery Collection and as such is an Accor hotel.

I have had the pleasure of staying at this comfortable, beachfront hotel on several occasions.  For me it remains a favourite, well-established Seminyak “go-to” hotel that never disappoints.

Formerly the Sofitel, the grand foyer is welcoming and the service impressive.  If you are seeking an ultra modern or chic resort, then the Royal Beach Seminyak is NOT for you!

Situated in 4.5 hectares of tropical gardens the resort has that “old Bali” feel without being too dated.

128 hotel rooms vary from  Superior, Deluxe, Grand Deluxe to Suites – all having a private balcony/terrace.  A Coffee Machine and quality tea selection in the Grand Deluxe and Suites are a nice touch.  The Suites provide a separate living area, powder room, well appointed ensuite and a spacious bedroom and walk-in robe.

17 private villas with their own private pool or spa pool are also available.  These are walled in their own private enclave with a Butler service.

Some truly are “position A” with a  direct ocean facing outdoor area.

Two outdoor  pools include a stunning beachfront pool and a private garden pool.

The garden pool has a spa attached and has plenty of tropical foliage giving a sense of seclusion.  It’s my favourite of the two pools for time-out and relaxing!

Breakfast is served at the Husk Restaurant overlooking the beachfront pool and ocean.  The cappuccino’s here are fabulous!

The Capri Beachfront Bar & Restaurant is a fab place for a sunset cocktail.  Often a guitarist is situated on the lawn area between the beach and the hotel.  The  poolside cabanas can be a great spot to chill and relax. The Teppanyaki Restaurant serves Japanese cruisine and the hotel also  provides 24hr room service.

Other facilities include free hotel parking, a well equipped air-conditioned Fitness Centre, in-house luxury Spa, Living Room Lounge featuring internet corner, kids play area and library.

The position affords easy movement between Seminyak and Legian and is in close vicinity to beachfront bars, fine dining restaurants and luxury Seminyak shopping.

If you enjoy an early morning walk, The Royal Beach is an easy stroll along the beach to Kudeta  or to Legian, in the opposite direction, along a paved beach path.

As a loyal Accor Advantage Plus member, I often benefit from room upgrades, benefit from 50% off Accor Sales, enjoy 2 for 1 meals and 15% off drinks.

If you are after a spacious resort with a firm Balinese theme, well established gardens, committed and loyal staff, well kept, comfortable and spacious rooms, then this gem of a resort is for you!

Whilst attending an invitation only, in-house cocktail party on the beachfront lawns last week, I noted the Reservations Manager was in his second decade of employment at the Royal Beach Seminyak. Clearly, the hotel treats it’s staff just as well as it’s clientele!

I can’t wait to return…
