Farther north you will find the more refined Seminyak area. If you want to be close to the heart of things, but enjoy a bit more sophisticated accommodation and surroundings, this is the place for you. Hotels here are slightly more upscale, ranging from affordable and stylish to luxurious and opulent. Seminyak also has an incredible number of private villas available for short and long-term stays, often including staff that will cook, clean, and look after your every need. The hotels and villas in this area are often tucked away from everything else, offering serenity, calm, and a unique Balinese aesthetic. Seminyak is great for families, with many world-class but affordable restaurants, clean and pleasant beaches, and fashionably funky boutiques that will drive shoppers wild without hurting their bank accounts. Kids’ clubs and indoor play areas are also available, as are nannies at very reasonable prices.
