Pantai Petitenget, Jalan Kayu Aya, Kerobokan, Kuta Utara, Seminyak, Kuta, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
One of the first upscale beach restaurants on the well-developed stretch of Seminyak beach (and now one of several fine Italian options in the area), La Lucciola draws crowds to its beautiful frangipani-tree-scented beachfront to enjoy...
Gitgit, Sukasada, Kabupaten Buleleng, Bali, Indonesia
A number of beautiful waterfalls grace Bali's landscape, but Gitgit is the highest. A day trip through mountains and Lake Tamblingan ending up at Gitgit for a cooling swim is a great way to prepare for the drive back to the south, if that's where...
Jalan Bisma, Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
After your walk through the rice fields you'll need an amazing lunch. Just up the road from the Campuhan ridge walk is Pomegranate, a great restaurant under a simple white canopy with views to die for. There is nothing fancy about this place but...
Jalan Drupadi II No. 09, Seminyak, Kuta, Seminyak, Badung, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80316, Indonesia
Dupa is where to go when you can't decide what to eat. With Baby Biku, Thai Corner and Switch all on the menu you have the option of anything from Pad Thai to high tea.Sandwiches from Switch are filling, tasty and fresh and the juices and...
Jl. Kayu Aya Gang 51, Seminyak, Kuta, Seminyak, Kuta, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
Revolver is the trendiest coffee shop in Seminyak. It ticks all of the boxes: hard-to-find location, painted brick walls, an eclectic mix of furnishings, and, most importantly, excellent coffee. The cold-pressed is especially good on a hot day....
Jalan Petitenget No.51B, Kerobokan Kelod, Kuta Utara, Kerobokan Kelod, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
Though it has a silly name, the Potato Head Beach Club on Seminyak beach is a cool spot to spend the day. A collage of antique 18th-century veranda shades surrounds an amphitheater-like space that contains a beach bar, a grassy lawn, and an...
Peliatan, Ubud, Gianyar, Bali, Indonesia
The best babi guling (suckling pig) in Ubud can be found at the no frills, open air Ibu Oka, Jalan Sueta / Tegal Sari No 2. Sit on the floor in front of a low table (you may have to share) and rip into a plate of tender pork served with rice and a...
Jl. Sari Dewi No.17, Seminyak, Kuta, Kabupaten Badung, Bali, Indonesia
It may sound a bit rough, but Straw Hut is actually one of the trendiest little bar/restaurants in Seminyak right now. The atmosphere is really laid back and beachy (even though it's not on the beach). The glass doors open wide so there is plenty...
Jl. Kayu Aya No.72, Seminyak, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
It's hard to stand out in such a fancy crowd in Seminyak, but Chandi most certainly does. Its stylish interior and 8 meter hand-carved bar are gorgeous but also cozy. The food doesn't disappoint either. Owner and Head Chef Agung Nugroho cooked in...
