Bali is not only the island of Gods, temples and Mysticism; it is also an utterly romantic holiday destination attracting couples in love and honeymooners from all over the world for decades already. Seminyak is a perfectly romantic town to spend a couple of days of your holiday itinerary. Seminyak is sophisticated and modern without losing its traditional Balinese feel and charm. There are excellent restaurants, tons of chic, high-end shopping boutiques, there are nightclubs, and it is located right by the beach where the sunsets will stun you to the bone. Wondering what to do? Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Spa for couples
The affordable spa treatments are one reason alone to Bali, escaping into a world of pampering and bliss. For couples, there are special couple spa packages. This way, you can experience the goodness of the Balinese spa culture together instead of alone. Imagine a nice and cool air-conditioned treatment room, the subtle scent of incense and/or oils, the sound of rippling water from tranquil little fountains and relaxation music playing softly in the background. Two massage beds are placed next to each other, and there is a flower bath ready to soak in after the massage and scrub or whatever may be included in your package. You can find these spas at the corner of every street – simply inform about their couples spa packages and you are all set.
- Dinner under the stars
There are plenty of amazing dining venues to sit down for a romantic dinner with your loved one. Candlelight, the starry night sky, nice music, there is not much more needed to get romance flowing around in the air on Bali Island. Recommended restaurants for a starlit dinner are Zibiru where they also have live jazz music on some evening in the week and the beachfront La Lucciola for an exquisite dinner to the sound of the sea.
- Sunset drinks
Somehow, there is something truly magical to the ‘island sunsets’ in Bali. Seminyak Beach is the place to be during these twilight hours. The colourful bean bags and ceremonial parasols, the music, beach tables in the sand and the colourful lights – the whole ambience here, created by beach bars such as La Plancha and Champlung, just charms you out. It is lively and lovely. Order some tropical cocktails and say cheers to many good years of love and romance to come.
- Private 1-bedroom villa
Certainly, a love trip to Bali is not complete without a romantic place to spend the night. You need somewhere exclusive, intimate and private with modern luxuries and no disturbance. Luckily, Seminyak is home to more than a few amazing 1-bedroom villas at affordable prices. Check them out here.
- Dancing the night away
Whether you are young or old, new or old time lovers, dancing is always a good way to feel the butterflies in your belly once again, just like you felt when you were young and when you just met. So, sip a few cocktails, have dinner, dress up a little in your private villa and off you go, a free dive straight into the happening nightlife of Seminyak. Check out Zappz for live music and La Favela for dancing in exotic atmospheres, Bali Joe for a good laugh and the Red Carpet Champagne Bar for a unique, utterly chic hang-out on Jalan Oberoi.
