Whilst Kuta has long been known as ‘party-central’ in Bali, for those looking for somewhere a tad more luxurious and further from the madding backpacker crowd, I would recommend that you treat yourself to a mini-break in Seminyak.
The area is known for it’s upmarket lifestyle and certainly has no shortage of fashionable boutiques, chic restaurants and hipster cafés. There are also plenty of indulgent little spas dotted along the sunny streets where you can enjoy a traditional Balinese foot massage and more.
If all you’re looking for is deep-chill serenity then you’ll need nothing more than time. Time to sit back and absorb those deep red sunsets that wave across the shoreline. A totally ‘emo’ yet truly magical site to behold.
