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.

  • Soooo... Weekends in Dubai has resulted at the beach since summer has kicked in!! Here is one of my favorite barefoot lunch spots ❤️ Have you been here?
  • Maldives, you are my favorite distraction 🐠
  • I found a little Tuscany in Dubai!! On small roads in the countryside in Val d’Orcia, sunflowers bloom in summer and it gives you a sense of happiness. On my hunt for inspiration of Italy in the UAE, I found a little bit of Tuscany and happiness in Dubai🌻

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
