December 2015, March 2016, November 2016, April 2017 Tours…

– All concluded and a Great Success!!

TESTIMONIAL 1:

December 2015, from Kim:  “The Exclusively Bali Tour exceeded all my expectations. There wasn’t a day I didn’t love! I met new people, found super buys at shops I never even knew existed, devoured tasty foods and learnt the culture.  It was wonderful and I highly recommend Brenda who leads the tour and is so insightful and organised. Bali is a beautiful country and I feel lucky to have been part of the Exclusively Bali Tour!” 

TESTIMONIAL 2:

March 2016, from Teresa:  “I enjoyed everything. It was so much fun and every detail was organised. I’m happily recommending you to all my friends.  I loved the bargain wholesale shops and the designer shops too . You had it down pat and I loved it all.  Thanks for one of the best trips to Bali ever! ” 

TESTIMONIAL 3:

Thank you to My Bali Addction for reporting on our March 2016 Ultimate Homewares Tour- including a rather hilarious recollection of brunch!! http://mybaliaddiction.com/march-2016-part-2-seminyak-sanur/

TESTIMONIAL 4:

March 2016 from Mary:  I just wanted to say a quick but belated thank you to Exclusively Bali for a fantastic Ultimate Homewares Tour last month.

What a wonderful time we all had! Like minded ladies doing what they love best: shopping, relaxing, shopping, eating, shopping, drinking, shopping, indulging … and, of course, shopping.

Our hostess planned and coordinated everything superbly – nothing was left to chance. Welcome packs left on our beds at the Royal Beach Seminyak, a well-balanced itinerary, transport, treats and indulgences, advice, and a range of shops to explore, which would keep even the fussiest shopper satisfied.

It can’t have been easy catering to different tastes and personalities; some of us had been to Bali many times before, some just a few times, and one of us was a Bali virgin!

For someone who has been to Bali so often, I was surprised to visit so many shops I’d never been to before. Furniture, shell, stone artifacts, market stalls, homewares, gifts, interior design – we covered the range. My favourite place was filled with antiques, chandeliers and restyled treasures.

There was plenty of down time to get to know each other, and enjoy all that our resort had to offer. The Royal Beach has an especially beautiful garden, two lovely pools and a great beachside location to explore. We’d start each day with an excellent buffet breakfast and as many cappuccinos as we could swallow, and then take it from there.

Our first day was a non-shopping day, starting with a tour of a 5 star, designer hotel and followed by a 5 star brunch. Oh my, talk about a BIG day. Suffice to say: ‘what happens at brunch stays at brunch’. We laughed so much our ribs ached.

Over the next few days, we participated in shopping trips, and indulgences like a massage at an award winning “Worlds Luxury Spa in Bali”  and high tea at an old world famous, Indonesian teahouse – all included as part of our package.

Free time was spent doing our own thing, shopping for clothes, having spa treatments… whatever took our fancy at the time.

We also headed out of town to explore markets and wholesale outlets, stopping for lunch to admire the lush beauty of Ubud. When we left our resort accommodation, we seasoned shoppers stayed focused on  the shopping at hand despite the stunning scenery of central Bali.  We were women on a mission, after all.

So what did I buy during my week on Exclusively Bali’s Ultimate Homewares Tour? I did fall in love with so much, but knew I couldn’t buy it all….  I did buy some wonderful copper bowls, new cushions for my home, perfume that I’d been trying to find for a few years, brass handles for my wardrobes, placemats, carvings, compressed towels and holders (the kind you find in restaurants). It didn’t seem like a lot at the time, but I had to buy another suitcase to get my loot home.

Once again, thank you to Exclusively Bali for an unforgettable tour”.

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

image

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

image

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.

La Sicilia, Seminyak, Bali

Jalan Laksmana (Oberoi) 151, Seminyak

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.

20140321-160437.jpg

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.

20140321-154155.jpg

20140321-154106.jpg

Multiple colours are available as well as the original black.

20140321-160507.jpg

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