The most famous beach resort in Bali has been undergoing a series of renovation projects to make the area more appealing to tourists. The area known locally as Samigita Beach is the stretch of Bali’s southern coastline that runs from Kuta Beach through Legian Beach to Seminyak Beach.
The renovation projects have included the construction of a beach sidewalk, skatepark, tsunami shelters, statues, and a beach wall. As the majority of the project has been signed off by developers, the Seminyak Traditional Village and Seminyak Beach Tourism Area Team have proposed several follow-up projects.
The Head of the Seminyak Beach Area Arrangement Team, I Komang Ruditha Hartawan, has outlined plans to reporters. He says that the follow-up development is all projects that were tabled at the beginning of the renovation project. He explained, “There really isn’t any new addition. We have actually submitted this proposal the previous year. But maybe because there are budget adjustments and limited time, some of the proposals cannot be executed in 2022.”

There are a total of seven follow-up developments that have been proposed, including further renovations to the sidewalk at Seminyak Beach, as well as four new statues. Hartawan said, “Now the wall on Seminyak Beach is good. While the sidewalk next to it was damaged. Then the two statues need to be repaired again.”
The team has also submitted a proposal to install fifteen massage beds on Seminyak Beach, as well as picnic table areas along the beach and sidewalk. The Seminyak Traditional Village and Seminyak Beach Tourism Area Team have also requested permission to install covers for stalls to make the area look both cleaner and neater.

Hartawan said, “We are also coordinating with the Head of the PUPR (Public Works and Spatial Planning) Office. They say that if it is not possible in the Main Budget this year, then efforts will be made in the Amendment budget. [This is] all so that the condition of Seminyak Beach will be even more beautiful in the future.”
When approached for comment, the Head of the Badung PUPR Office, Ida Bagus Surya Suamba, said the proposal sent by the Manager of Seminyak Beach on behalf of the local teams had been received. Suamba said, “We will accommodate the proposal first [finishing renovations to Samigita Beach]. The Budget is not yet available, but we will accommodate it first, then the government will consider it.”

Seminyak remains one of Bali’s most popular tourist areas. Offering easy access to ultra-trendy Canggu, and old classic destination Kuta, Seminyak offers many holidaymakers the perfect balance of relaxation and play. Seminyak is home to some of Bali’s most sought-after clubs and entertainment venues. The area is home to Potato Head Beach Club, a world-class beach club that strictly adheres to its sustainability values.
Ku De Ta is a super popular party venue that is famous for its cocktails and cabanas that overlook the sandy shores of Seminyak Beach. It is perhaps the visual of the beanbags on the beach in front of La Plancha that has become the most encapsulating photo of the area.
As leaders in Kuta have voiced their concerns that tourists are favoring up-and-coming areas like Canggu, leaders in Seminyak haven’t had to worry so much. Both the volume of upmarket venues and a plethora of hotels, resorts, and independent guesthouses have ensured that the area maintains its relevance in Bali’s ever-evolving tourism market.
The area is both accessible and accommodating for Bali’s mainstay holidaymaker demographic. It appears that Seminyak Beach and Double Six remain as popular after the pandemic as they did before, whereas destinations like Kuta have had to contend with concerns from travelers regarding safety. Keen to bring travelers back to the area and to return to its pre-pandemic popularity, leaders in Kuta have increased police presence and security patrols in the area.
