8 Things To Do In Seminyak When You’re Done Partying

There’s more to Seminyak than just partying your days (and nights!) away.

Seminyak’s reputation of having the trendiest party scene and most picturesque resorts precedes it, but how much of everything else have you actually experienced?

Before you say “been there, done that”, read our list of things to do in Seminyak — and check if you’re in need of another trip to Bali soon.

1. Dine in style at Seminyak’s finest restaurants

Since eating is something you have to do no matter what kind of trip you’ve planned for, you might as well dedicate at least one mealtime to dining in one of Seminyak’s many fancy restaurants.

With an indoor garden concept, Merah Putih provides the perfect backdrop for your delicately plated meal. The mains starting at 150,000 IDR may sound steep as compared to what you’ll get at the warung nearby, but it’s still a great bargain when you consider how much you’d have to fork out back home.

2. Try your hand at cooking Balinese cuisine

If you think fine dining’s too passé, you might want to give cooking classes at Warung Nia a try. You’ll tackle all the authentic local favourites like satay and nasi goreng, and receive a certificate (along with your newly acquired culinary knowledge) to bring home at the end of the day.

3. Learn how to be on the giving end of a massage

Within the same vein of learning something new, massage classes are totally a thing! Instead of booking yet another spa session, check with your resort if they also offer any massage classes. The Amala runs special Art of Touch massage classes for couples, and if you prefer doing it solo, Espace Spa is an option.
