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.

  • This is for those who give everything they’ve got to make their lives as beautiful as their dreams... and for the friends who stick... for what’s real and what's not...
You will find them in the little things... and little moments. Now more than ever. 
That's when you know 💫 
Happy Palm Sunday 🙂
  • Woke up this morning feeling a sudden disconnection.
There’s power in disconnection.
When you separate yourself from the world for a while, you’ll figure out what’s feeding ur soul, what’s entertaining ur ego, what’s nothing but a distraction... and then you find exactly where your alignment is.
  • Happy whatever f**** day it is 🤷‍♀️
  • Someone said to me “The strong woman you are becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces, outings and material things. Always choose her over everything!” And so, I did. 💫
  • I’ve always thought you should be able to freeze time... This way you could hit the pause button at a really good point in your life so that nothing changes. 
Being in the Arctic. Pause. 
Happy Sunday 💫
  • I read something today that says “what you hide in your heart... shows in your eyes” and I smiled. I’m counting down the days to be able to say, we made it through the storm. 
I’m optimistic about our future and the future of our business... and pray we all find that place of peace where the chaos inside of us is understood... Whoever you are, wherever you are.

  • In the midst of chaos with what’s happening around the world, I hope you always find the courage to keep living and love deeply in a world that is slowly failing to do so... 💫
  • Before taking off on our TJD series, I got the chance to enjoy a family break at Zaya Nurai thanks to @experiencemuse. MUSE had curated this bespoke experience, knowing that part of unwinding for me, is spending quality time with my family. Can’t wait to meet our new guest travelers in Finland!  #experienceMUSE
  • “The question is not how to get cured, but how to live... for she was always fighting a battle but her smile would never tell you so... and that’s how she created Neverland”
  • ‘When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes.
When you get photograph people in black and white, you photograph their soul’

Probably will delete this... but for now... I’m loving it.
  • What makes you happy? They say that every time you are happy, you are on your path. So be aware of the moments where you feel the most happiest... and hold on to it 💫
  • Shoutout to all the shy, introverted, empathic, social awkward souls who are pushing past their comfort zone to share love with the world and detaching themselves from fearful thoughts and using their energy to believe instead of worrying. 👊🏻
