What to do in Seminyak for couples?

1. Stay in a private pool villa

We know – you are in Seminyak and you want to be out exploring the town and chilling out at celebrated beach clubs such as KU DE TA and Potato Head.

2. Sunset romance

Bali’s breathtaking sunsets are world-famous for a reason! When sunset strikes, romance is in the air! Head over to Double Six Beach in the late afternoon. Beach bars such as La Plancha set the perfect ambience with feel-good music, colourful bean bags and Balinese parasols. The look of Double Six Beach around sunset time is incredibly pretty and highly Instagrammable. You’ll see couples on the beach trying to snap that perfect photo and happy faces glowing in the sunlight. Sit down, chill out, order a cocktail and don’t be shy to ask someone to take a photo of the two of you on the beach to the backdrop of the sunburst sky. These are memorable moments to cherish forever.

3. Scooter trip

Before you fly over to Bali, make sure you get your international drivers’ licence so you can rent a scooter. There is just nothing better than driving around, exploring beaches, hidden alleyways, cool cafes and temples on a motorbike with your babe on the back. From Seminyak, you can easily drive to Canggu, Tanah  Lot and Uluwatu without needing anything or anyone else. Totally independent, free as birds, there is no better feeling! As you can see in the video below traffic can be a bit of a nightmare sometimes but that’s just part of the fun and adventure – have patience and a good sense of humour and you’ll be fine.

4. Visit Tanah Lot Temple

No matter how much we love gazing at the sunset while lounging at beach bars and clubs in Seminyak, you have to save one evening to watch the sunset at Tanah Lot, a beautiful sea temple located just up north from Seminyak and Canggu. It’s an iconic image of Bali – sunset at Tanah Lot and it is one of those places to get off your list of things-to-do in Bali. A fun scooter drive from Seminyak, the legendary temple is beautiful and very sacred. Stroll around hand in hand with your lover, take photos and sit down for drinks before driving back to your Seminyak Villa later in the evening. On the way back, why not stop for dinner in Canggu?

5. Private tour with a personal chauffeur

Bali has A LOT to offer! Rice paddies, temples, waterfalls, beaches, volcanoes, museums, plantation farms and much more. The best and most comfortable way of seeing the island is with a private chauffeur in a private air-conditioned vehicle. From Seminyak, you can go on fabulous day trips to see all of the highlights. We recommend seeing Uluwatu and Canggu on a motorbike but if you want to see more and travel further, hire a car and driver. One day you can see Ubud ( check the Monkey Forest & the Tegalalang Rice Terraces) and Kintamani. Another day you can visit Bedugul and Lovina and on yet another day, travel east towards Candidasa and Amed.

6. Catamaran Cruise

What’s more romantic than sailing off into the sunset sky, opening a bottle of wine and dining on the deck of a catamaran beneath a starry night sky? Book a private cruise to Nusa Lembongan Island and your dreams will come true. A great way to surprise your lover on a special evening!
