Anantara Hotel – Seminyak Beach
For a classier place to watch the rays disappear over Seminyak, not much beats the views at the top of the Anantara – you can see up and down the beach, and way out to sea with uninterrupted views… bit of a hidden gem this one
Champlung Bar Seminyak Beach
For the laid-back bean bag experience – right next to the more popular versions, but this was one of the originals, and still one of the best for friendly service, and live music as the golden orb disappears over the horizon… can’t see that on the east coast ;-)
707 Bar Batu Belig
Pssst – wanna know where the locals go? Head down to 707 Bar Batu Belig – great drinks, hip music, and a great mix crowd… also great combination of tables chairs at the bar, bean bags on grass for those with a sand allergy, and rustic coolness….
Mano Mano – Seminyak
You won’t find too many tourists here either, unless they stumble across it! It’s tucked away in a corner, but its right on the beach, also a local know-how place… a little bit more upmarket than the beach bean bag bars, but at reasonable prices… a great compromise!
Restaurants and Cafe’s
Hog Wild – Batu Belig
Now this is our FAVOURITE place of all – so much fun, good for couples, family, groups – it caters for the lot. As they say, wicked ribs, and brutal martinis – possibly the best ribs you will have anywhere in the world, let alone Bali! Suggestions – get the classic pork ribs with a side of corn on the cob –it’s all you will need – and try the margaritas or long island ice tea if you dare! And, wait to see what happens if you order a martini or margarita…. Shake shake shake!

Eden Hookah Club Bali
Pak Malen (Babi Guling) – Seminyak
Anyone that knows local food, knows Babi Guling – and anyone that knows the best Babi Guling, knows Pak Malen – if you’re adventurous in your cuisine, and don’t mind the fact that you will fight for a seat, it’s a must do in Bali. Pork many different ways, all on a plate with rice and soup. Sounds simple, taste delish! Must do. But get there before 2pm, as when its gone, its done! Did I mention must do?
