Why Honeymoon in Seminyak?

Seminyak is the ideal location to begin your happily ever after. Seminyak is the fanciest and most luxurious region of Bali, with a stunning white sand beach and many luxurious hotels and resorts. We believe starting or finishing your honeymoon in Seminyak is a good choice, as it’s conveniently located close to Bali Airport. Seminyak is known for its magnificent sunset views, an excellent place for dining and shopping, and unique nightlife scene. It can be a great starting point for day trips across the island too - you may consider making it your base in Bali!

Explore Seminyak

Given many beautiful hotels with spectacular honeymoon suites, newlyweds may enjoy the best of both worlds on their honeymoon - the privacy of a private romantic holiday in Seminyak while being only a short walk away from the beach and all the action.

Seminyak is positioned on the west coast of Bali, only 30 minutes north of Bali’s airport. It’s nestled between the tourist regions of Kuta and Canggu. While Kuta caters to the young party crowd, and Canggu is taken over by hipster surfers and digital nomads, we believe Seminyak is the ideal destination for couples. Seminyak is known for its high-end hotels and restaurants, a much more beautiful beach than Canggu, and lively nightlife.

If you aren’t sure whether you want to stay in Canggu or Seminyak, don’t forget that they are only 20 minutes away by taxi. From Seminyak, it’s effortless to go to Canggu for a day or even for the night.

Potatohead Beach Club in Seminyak. Potatohead Beach Club in Seminyak.

Seminyak’s beach clubs are a popular destination both during the day (for relaxing) and at night (to party). The most spectacular beach clubs are without a doubt W Bar, Potatohead, and Ku De Ta, all overlooking white sand beaches with a beautiful, wild ocean. They’re all located on the north side of Seminyak, in an area named Petitenget.

Sunset at La Plancha. Sunset at La Plancha. More south, Double Six Beach is a relaxed place with less pretentious beach bars. Our favorite is La Plancha, a colorful but down-to-earth place where couples can enjoy the Indonesian sunsets from the beach while enjoying a cocktail from a simple beanbags with your feet in the sand. A very romantic and special moment for you and your partner, do not miss sunset when in Seminyak!

There are a lot of boutique shops and art galleries in Seminyak town. Most of them are on Jalan Kayu Aya and in the Seminyak Square and Seminyak Village shopping malls. If you are looking for a larger mall with international chain stores, take a 20-minute drive to Beachwalk Mall in Kuta. For authentic and unique art by (mostly) Balinese artists, we recommend Nyoman Gallery on Jl Raya Legian.

Honeymoon Hotels in Seminyak

While Seminyak is not the cheapest region in Bali - luxury comes at a cost - if you think of splurging on a honeymoon suite in a 5-start resort, Seminyak is the place to do it. You’ll get more value for money in Bali than almost anywhere else in the world. Imagine waking up in your honeymoon suite overlooking the vast Indian Ocean!

We would recommend you to stay in a hotel right on the beach (or very close to the beach) in central Seminyak. We’ve listed some of our favorite options below. With a centrally located hotel, it will be easier to get around without relying on taxis all the time.

If you don’t like traveling from hotel to hotel, Seminyak is an excellent place to stay for your entire honeymoon. Many places are within reach for a day trip: it takes only twenty minutes from Seminyak to Canggu, and 1 hour from Seminyak to Ubud or Uluwatu.
