Fashion lovers, hipsters, and shopaholics, we’ve got great news! Seminyak is a shopping paradise.
The following guide to shopping in Seminyak will show you where to buy high-end fashionable dresses, jewellery, kiddies clothes, designer chic and everything gorgeous in between!
Shopping in Seminyak is a ‘must do’ when you are in Bali. If you are staying in or around the Seminyak area, you are probably in a private Seminyak villa; there is really no escaping it. So grab your credit card and have serious fun buying anything from high-end fashion clothing, surfwear, and jewellery to Balinese souvenirs.
All you need to do is walk down the main street of Jalan Kayu Aya, and you will find heaps of trendy boutiques and chic shops just waiting for you. In fact, if you are there for the first time, it can be a little overwhelming. So much to choose from.
The best thing about shopping in Seminyak is that each shop offers something different, each having its own unique personality and style. It’s basically a shopaholic paradise. But don’t be fooled; shopping here can be better and more exclusive than in some parts of Australia. Plus, there is the new Seminyak Village shopping mall & Seminyak Square, where you will find even more shops, restaurants and things to do with the kids.
If you are travelling with kids and you are a serious shopper, and you don’t want them getting bored, we suggest getting your villa manager to organise a day trip for them to a place like the Waterbom Bali or the Splash Park at Finns Club. Getting to both of these destinations is easy if you go there by taxi. If you have toddlers, perhaps a babysitter for the day is a good idea. Again, this can be arranged for you.
Shopping here is different to the rest of Bali. So you can put away your bargaining hat. Most of the prices here are set, so be prepared to pay full price for all items. If, however, you do buy in bulk, I am sure that there will be some room for negotiation.
It seems you can’t run into someone in Seminyak and not have their claim to be a designer; the reality is that many actually are. The shopping scene here is constantly changing: new boutiques appear, old ones vanish, some change into something else, while others move up to a whole new level.
The great thing about Seminyak is that it seems to keep going. It’s tough to tell the difference in areas like Seminyak, Petitenget, Umalas and Oberoi.
They all seem to blend into one, and the best part about this is that each area has more and more shops. It never ends, so be prepared to walk and browse. In fact, I would say that a day is not enough. Break it up into small time slots where you shop for 2-3 hours for a couple of afternoons. Never shop between 11 am – 3 pm as it’s just too hot walking the streets.
Shopping in Seminyak is really going to take a full day. Trying to cram it into an hour or two will not work. There are so many distractions that it will be dinner time before you know it. This I can promise you. By the end of the day, armed with bags of designer clothes, it will be time for a sunset drink at Ku De Ta, which is at the end of the shopping strip in the very chic Petitenget area.
While shopping, you will also notice many cool restaurants, cafes and bars. You can easily spend the day and night here without leaving the area. In fact, in some cases, this is all that people do. If you are in Bali in the peak or high season, booking in advance for some of the more popular restaurants such as MamaSan, Motel Mexicola, or Ku De Ta might be a good idea to avoid disappointment.
‘Bali Villa Escapes tip: if you love surfing and the lifestyle and the clothing that goes along with it, check out the Drifter Surf Shop in Seminyak. It has an eclectic mix of clothing, books and accessories you will love. Drifter is also a place to sit, relax, enjoy the great coffee in the café and watch the street traffic go by”.
‘Bali Villa Escapes Tip # 2: If you are looking to get more traditional Balinese gifts and that trusty Bintang T-Shirt, then you will still be able to find the odd local vendor selling these in Seminyak. Here you can strike up a good bargain and haggle over the price if you like. Head to the flea market for some great souvenirs”.
