A Mini Guide to Bali’s Secrets

By Tanya Haroun

 You will adore the boutiques in Seminyak, plenty of cute places to buy different things and not expensive. Here are few of my favorites shops, restaurants in Bali and places to stay in Bali! Traveling to Bali is for everyone!

When in Bali

                                        Shop in Seminyak

 

Biasa

69 Slam

Skull

PressBan

                                     Have breakfast at Sisterfield’s and Shelter.

Sisterfield’s is right in the heart of Seminyak, besides Seminyak Square, on the main street Jl Kayu aya. Shelter is on another street

                                      Have dinner in

La Favela  Try to book the private rooms. Such a cool place. On the weekend, it turns into a dancing place too. Food is international, a mix of Brazilian/French…

Mama San   Asian (also on Main Street) you can also have lunch there


Mera Putih  Indonesian Fusion. (You need to reserve)

Sardine  Also needs prior booking. (expensive but great sea food)

Sarong  The 3 times I’ve been there I haven’t been able to get a table as it’s always booked. So make sure you book in advance and let me know how it goes!

Ku De Ta  For Sunset

Potato Head  Beach club. Overrated… But you can try it if you really wanna.

Desa Seni   Yoga/Peace. Go for breakfast, they grow their own food, all healthy and clean. You have free access to their pool during the week if you go eat there, or do yoga. I would highly suggest you get a massage there! SO GOOD! expensive but worth it!!! So I reckon, go in around 11. Have a juice, do a 90 min massage. Chill by the pool. Order some food. and enjoy!

La Laguna   The new place to be. I haven’t been, and it’s the same people who did Favela. Super cool for a sunset apparently, and if there’s a DJ afterwards, you can party!

 

 
 When in Canggu

Canggu is a little village to disconnect

                                Stay in

Kirana Hotel  Affordable, serviced, clean. They also have bicycles available to rent FOC and go around town. It is located a few minutes from everything, so is perfect for a local getaway. Small pool. 2 Restaurants. Excellent price.


Radian Villa   Large independent villas – 2 pools. No restaurants or F&B options. Good location.

 

 

 

                               Dine & Drink in

Oldman’s   Everybody’s favourite since it’s on the beach, open all day long, has wifi, great from breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks… the town’s icon!!
Monsieur Spoon   Breakfast at Monsieur Spoon is just a piece of Europe in Asia. I think I had the best ham and cheese croissant of my life there!
Crate   For the hipsters and healthier choice, head to Crate for an authentic picture perfect breakfast.

 

                              Spa & Massage

I’m a big fan of massages, so if you want something nearby, head towards:

Therapy 

Goldust

Desi Sena

Canggu is a perfect surfer spot. Quite a difficult spot for beginners, as it can be challenging, but makes the perfect spot for sunset. Catch a sun-downer watching surfers end their day on Echo Beach. A good spot is Sandy Beach, super chill and basic. *Inside tip After parties are usually held there after concerts at Deus!

 

Don’t Miss…

 

Echo beach  Also has a seafood BBQ every evening by the beach.

Visit or stay in Nusa Duaa & Uluwatu

 

                                Stay at

Grand Nikko Hotel Beach

Went to nearby Uluwatu and wish we had gone there instead! Possibly the best area to watch the sunset in Bali, because the southern coast is surrounded by high cliffs.
Single Fin  A beautiful setting for food and drinks. A must visit in the south. The waters are for pro surfers, so you can enjoy great shows and competitions in that spot.
Karma Kandara  A beach club in the area is a fancier version of Balinese beaches. Prior reservations are required and an entrance fee is set. Food and drinks are very good there, but obviously come at a pricier cost.

  • You loved her because you saw all her magic... she loved you because you reminded her of it when she’s forgotten it... 💫
  • We just had a long 3 day weekend in the UAE and I LOVED it! 
I’m thinking of starting a global petition where we can have 3 day weekend all over the world! 
What do you think? Wouldn’t you LOVE a 3 day weekend!?
  • Truth: I’ve come to terms a long time ago that, if you are not motivating me, praying for me, loving me, inspiring me or trying to build with me... then, you are a distraction. 
For a long time I’ve felt the pressure of social media and I’ve learnt to deal with it. 
We live in a society that is continuously looking for happiness, dreams and goals out there for the next best thing to feel ‘happiness’ and ‘social acceptance’ but, we seem to forget that we are ALIVE, and that is all we need right now. 
If you agree leave a ♥️. Thank you for being with me throughout all these years.
  • Right this second, where I am... and where I want to be and it’s f*** incredible ♥️

  • Who wants to join??! Not long now for our upcoming group trips on @travelwithtjd as we kick off the season! #travelwithTJD
We’ve got 6 separate FULL groups on our Adventure Travel Movement going to different locations in Norway and Finland in 2018 and I’m so thankful and excited! 
Our first one sets sail in October in Tromso for 4 nights in search for the Northern Lights while we sail the arctic sea! We dock in an uninhabited Island to hike and explore too! 
Make sure you follow @travelwithtjd to join our Travel Adventure Travel Movement. 
Thank you @dennisstever for this lovely picture ♥️
  • Are you a beach person or a mysterious desert lover?? I have to admit I love the beach but the desert has its own magic too! 😊
Back in the desert 🌵 and it’s hot but I can’t wait for the weather to start cooling off here! Which one do you love more?
  • What’s your favorite animal? Mine is the elephant. 
Those who know me well, know how I constantly talk about the dark side to elephant tourism that many people just don’t seem to be aware of… but you need to know this! 
Elephants are endangered species and should be in the wild, and the ONLY way to ride an elephant is by taming it with a process which is called Phajaan, or “the crush”.
It involves ripping baby elephants away from their mothers and confining them in a very small space, like a cage or hole in the ground where they’re unable to move with them tied down. Check it out on YouTube. 
So please don’t ride elephants, at any cost, ride bicycles instead. 
This photo was taken in an elephant sanctuary in North of Thailand in 2016
May the power of a thousand elephants give you the strength to face the troubles ahead. ♥️
  • I’m curious to know... Where is the best sunset you’ve ever seen? ♥️
  • People always say: “Make sure you get a job doing what you love!’’ But that isn’t the best advice. 
The right job is the job you love some days, can tolerate most days, and still pays the bills. Almost nobody has a job they love every single day and that is ok because that’s what it means to be human ♥️ #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Believe me, with the crazy errands I’m running around for today, I wouldn’t mind dropping it all and being back here where my only concern would be tan lines 😊 Who is with me? 😊
Happy Friday!! ❤️
  • Leaving Lebanon is never easy. Thank you for those with insane magic in them, those who danced through the nights till the mornings with me, those who took road trips with me, those who loved me, those who ate ice cream with me every day, those who made efforts to see me, those who competed with me for the best tan lines and for those friends who always were undeniably themselves with me. You know who you are ♥️🇱🇧
  • When you follow a feeling to the very end, all your dreams will come true! Inside peek at Giraffe Manor in Kenya 🇰🇪
