While in recent years, the focus of the nightlife scene in Bali has shifted towards Uluwatu and Canggu, trusty old Seminyak has proven steadfast in its style and stamina.

Seemingly never going out of fashion, Seminyak is home to some of the best-loved nightlife venues in Bali.

Really offering the best of both worlds, Seminyak welcomes tourists to the Island of the Gods with a stunning stretch of white sandy beach, incredible nightlife venues, exceptional culinary experiences, and world-class hotels and resorts.

Spanning from Double Six Beach through Seminyak Beach to Petitenget Beach, the resort area of Seminyak is ideal for couples, groups of friends on vacation, discerning backpackers, and families with teenagers and young adults.

Nestled between Legian to the east and Canggu to the west, tourists never failed to be impressed with a visit to Seminyak.

The area is super friendly and safe and lays the foundation for plenty of fun in the sun.

If you’re planning a trip to Bali and want to experience fine dining, lazy days hanging out on the beach, wild nightlife, and a luxury hotel vibe, Seminyak is for you.

Perhaps it can be said that the cornerstone of the nightlife scene in Seminyak is La Favela. Proving to be as popular as ever, La Favela is classy, stylish, and heaps of fun. Open every day from 7 pm, La Favela is a restaurant turned nightclub for adults over age 21.

The food, inspired by the flavors of Brazil, is the kind of nourishing soul food that puts you straight in a good mood.

Couple this with the innovative cocktail menu, and you’re onto a winner.

For a more laid-back, beachfront affair in Seminyak, look no further than La Plancha.

Best known for its brightly colored umbrellas that sit right on the shoreline of Jalan Mesari Beach, La Plancha is one of the best places to enjoy the sunset in Seminyak.

The restaurant and bar hosts live DJ sets every day and is open from 7.30 am for a hearty beachfront breakfast until 12 pm.

And it’s a good thing they are open from sunrise til sunset and far beyond. Once you plonk yourself down on a beanbag at La Plancha, it’s pretty hard to pull yourself away!

It’s the perfect place to laze in the sun to recover from a long night of revelry in Seminyak.

No mention of nightlife in Seminyak would be complete without at least a nod to Ku De Ta.

The restaurant, bar, and beach lounge are one of the most loved venues in Seminyak. Self-described as a ‘homage to the good things in life’, Ku De Ta is the epitome of laid back luxury.

The menu, with a fine dining feel, caters to every taste and every foodie vibe.

Offering everything from burgers and sandwiches, small plates, grazing boards, sharing platters, oysters, caviar, and wood-fired steak, you will leave Ku De Ta more than satisfied.

Popular dishes include the wasabi rock shrimp roll, burrata di prosciutto pizza and pan fried barramundi.

When it comes to accommodation in Seminyak, tourists are once again spoilt for choice.

There are plenty of incredible options on Airbnb, and for backpackers who want to travel analog, Seminyak is definitely still the kind of place where you can rock up, ask about, and find somewhere to stay on the spot.

If you like to travel with something more of a plan, then be sure to check out the recently revamped Four Points by Sheraton in Seminyak.

Reopened after a complete refit in October 2022, the Four Points by Sheraton is an ideal place to stay to make the most of your time in Seminyak.


Double Six Luxury Hotel is a famous five-star resort set right on the beachfront.

Offering guests the chance to watch the sunset from the shoreline or the edge of the dreamy swimming pool, Double Six Luxury Hotel even has 24-hour butlers to cater to your every need.

The Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort is an ever-popular beachfront retreat providing tourists with stylish suites, access to two exceptional in-house restaurants, and an infinity pool that looks out over the ocean.


This is really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the fine dining and nightlife experiences on offer in Seminyak.

Getting drunk out of your mind is a very spiritual experience.

@Raymond, one definition of ‘spiritual’ is to “get out of your mind”. Unless it’s the Buddhas definition which is “ never seek the void”.

“Super friendly and safe” ? Weren’t there an abundance of drug gangs brutalizing overserved women? Every article about ‘nightlife’ should include a disclaimer and warnings posted on the front doors of the infamous venues where ‘Kuta Cowboys’ lurk for unwary victims.

@Exp, Hah….how appropriate. ‘Favela’ is the term for violent gang controlled ghetto in Brazil.


Wednesday 12th of April 2023

Yep. Just look at the true (one star) google reviews of La Favela, Seminyak. Anything but "super friendly and safe" security there according to reviewers.

Visitors need to understand that "security" at these venues is run by Balinese "ormas". Just google "Laskar Bali" and "Baladika" look at the images and see for yourself their "capabilities" and "conflict solving skills".

Why suddenly a rash of fluff articles? I want news from Bali. Not paid advertisements. Tourism minister putting the clamps on Bali Sun?


Thursday 13th of April 2023

There was an instruction out from gov. authorities not so long ago asking media to no longer focus on issues that could put Bali in negative light!


Wednesday 12th of April 2023

@Buaya, been thinking the same, not worthwhile opening this site anymore. Nothing but advertising!


Tuesday 11th of April 2023

Are you guys actually doing any news anymore or just focussing on advertorials?

Steered south west again. Missed Lovina again. Got close yesterday with the waterfalls but just couldn't quite say the words Lovina.
