Seminyak Bali

Seminyak Bali

Seminyak Bali is more upmarket with mostly luxury accommodation and fashionable high-end restaurants and bars. The atmosphere is much more sophisticated and laid-back than Kuta, and the beach in particular is quieter during the day. Seminyak is also the high end spa and boutique shopping capital of Bali. Nowhere is the upscaling of Bali in recent years more obvious than here.
It is hard to imagine that only ten years ago this was a distinctly separate village, and something of a backwater. Development has occurred at an astonishing pace, and as well as absorbing all green space which formerly separated Seminyak from Legian, it is now almost impossible to determine where Seminyak ends and the nearby villages of Petitenget, Umalas and Kerobokan begin. This certainly has its downside, and the whole district has become very congested

Seminyak is part of the main west coast conurbation in South Bali and it can get very congested with traffic. There are two main routes in. From Kuta and Legian, Jalan Legian runs parallel with the beach and at its western limit, becomes Jalan Seminyak. If at all possible try to avoid this road though, and take instead the eastern bypass called Jalan Sunset. This is almost invariably the quicker route from Kuta and Legian into Seminyak, although it is actually further in distance.

ACTIVITIES  ENJOY RECOMMEND

Bali ATV Tours

The Bali Quad and Bali Buggy tours bring you to a part of Bali where you still can find old traditions alive. You will drive yourself with a specially designed off road car or 4-wheel motorcycle that copes with all kinds of terrain through an authentic part of Bali, passing rice fields, crossing jungle and driving through some Balinese kampongs (villages).

Bali Adventure Tours

The Elephant Safari Park is one of our favourite places to visit in Bali and their white water rafting is great fun.

Bali Bird Park

The Bali Bird Park is a great day out for everyone, the Bird Park is also a beautiful garden and has a restaurant and you can also see the KOMODO Dragon. Right next door is the Bali Reptile Park also worth a visit as you do get to walk amongst the reptiles (the friendly ones).

Bali Safari & Marine Park

The Bali Safari & Marine Park is another full day of activities. Don’t forget your bathers as beside the restaurant there is also the Fun Zone and Waterpark. A great place for the kids to use up the last of their energy and for adults to cool down and relax after enjoying the Safari Journey.

Bali Treetop Adventure Park

The Bali Treetop Adventure Park is a great day out. Located within the Bedugul Botanical Garden it is a great opportunity to experience the cooler climate of Bedugual. While there you can also explore the Bedugul Market (don’t miss out on their delicious strawberries when in season) and the Bedugul Ulun Danu Temple picturesquely set beside Lake Bratan.

Desa Seni

Desa Seni is a village resort which you are welcome to visit, enjoy their organic food at their restaurant and cool down by their pool. There are regular Yoga lessons and retreats, so check out their schedule.

Rimba Reptil Park

The Rimba Reptil Park is bigger than it looks and when I visited with my son and Aunt, we were very pleasantly surprised at how much fun and how interesting it was. The rest of the group had decided to relax at the Bird Park restaurant while we took a quick look. Boy did they miss out. I think it has something to do with the warm climate, as I have never seen reptiles as active as these ones and with more than 181 specimens, what was meant to be a quick look turned up to be much longer.

SUP Bali

SUP is Stand Up and Paddle. If you have never tried to SUP, well now is your chance, and it’s never too late. Pete has taught young and old.

Waterbom Bali

If you come with kids then it will be unlikely that you won’t be leaving until you have spent a day at Waterbom Bali . Don’t worry, you’ll enjoy it too. The lazy river is good start for everyone, the landscaped gardens are lovely and give opportunities to sit on a sun lounge in the sun or shade. There are good options at the food hall and you can even duck out across the road for a little bit of last minute shopping at the Discovery Mall while the rest of the family have fun.

Culture and history info

Culture and history infoHistory Bali was inhabited around 2000 BC by Austronesian people who migrated originally from Southeast Asia and Oceania through Maritime Southeast Asia. Culturally and linguistically, the Balinese are thus closely related to the people of the Indonesian archipelago, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Oceania. Stone tools dating from this time have been found near the village of Cekik in the island's west.

In ancient Bali, nine Hindu sects existed, namely Pasupata, Bhairawa, Siwa Shidanta, Waisnawa, Bodha, Brahma, Resi, Sora and Ganapatya. Each sect revered a specific deity as its personal Godhead. Balinese culture was strongly influenced by Indian, Chinese, and particularly Hindu culture, beginning around the 1st century AD.

The name Bali dwipa ("Bali island") has been discovered from various inscriptions, including the Blanjong pillar inscription written by Sri Kesari Warmadewa in 914 AD and mentioning "Withdrawal". It was during this time that the complex irrigation system subak was developed to grow rice. Some religious and cultural traditions still in existence today can be traced back to this period.

The Hindu Majapahit Empire (1293–1520 AD) on eastern Java founded a Balinese colony in 1343. When the empire declined, there was an exodus of intellectuals, artists, priests, and musicians from Java to Bali in the 15th century. At religious festivals on Bali the sculptures get dressed up and umbrellas are placed by the temples.

The first European contact with Bali is thought to have been made in 1585 when a Portuguese ship foundered off the Bukit Peninsula and left a few Portuguese in the service of Dewa Agung. In 1597 the Dutch explorer Cornelis de Houtman arrived at Bali and, with the establishment of the Dutch East India Company in 1602, the stage was set for colonial control two and a half centuries later when Dutch control expanded across the Indonesian archipelago throughout the second half of the 19th century. Dutch political and economic control over Bali began in the 1840s on the island's north coast, when the Dutch pitted various distrustful Balinese realms against each other. In the late 1890s, struggles between Balinese kingdoms in the island's south were exploited by the Dutch to increase their control.

Culture
Bali is renowned for its diverse and sophisticated art forms, such as painting, sculpture, woodcarving, handcrafts, and performing arts. Balinese cuisine is also distinctive. Balinese percussion orchestra music, known as gamelan, is highly developed and varied. Balinese performing arts often portray stories from Hindu epics such as the Ramayana but with heavy Balinese influence. Famous Balinese dances include pendet, legong, baris, topeng, barong, gong keybar, and kecak (the monkey dance). Bali boasts one of the most diverse and innovative performing arts cultures in the world, with paid performances at thousands of temple festivals, private ceremonies, or public shows.

The Hindu New Year, Nyepi, is celebrated in the spring by a day of silence. On this day everyone stays at home and tourists are encouraged to remain in their hotels. On the day before New Year, large and colourful sculptures of ogoh-ogoh monsters are paraded and finally burned in the evening to drive away evil spirits. Other festivals throughout the year are specified by the Balinese pawukon calendrical system.

Cremation in Ubud
Celebrations are held for many occasions such as a tooth-filing (coming-of-age ritual), cremation or odalan (temple festival). One of the most important concepts that Balinese ceremonies have in common is that of désa kala patra, which refers to how ritual performances must be appropriate in both the specific and general social context

Many of the ceremonial art forms such as wayang kulit and topeng are highly improvisatory, providing flexibility for the performer to adapt the performance to the current situation. Many celebrations call for a loud, boisterous atmosphere with lots of activity and the resulting aesthetic, ramé, is distinctively Balinese. Often two or more gamelan ensembles will be performing well within earshot, and sometimes compete with each other to be heard. Likewise, the audience members talk amongst themselves, get up and walk around, or even cheer on the performance, which adds to the many layers of activity and the liveliness typical of ramé.

Kaja and kelod are the Balinese equivalents of North and South, which refer to ones orientation between the island's largest mountain Gunung Agung (kaja), and the sea (kelod). In addition to spatial orientation, kaja and kelod have the connotation of good and evil; gods and ancestors are believed to live on the mountain whereas demons live in the sea. Buildings such as temples and residential homes are spatially oriented by having the most sacred spaces closest to the mountain and the unclean places nearest to the sea.
