Seminyak is a joint service / residential area on the west coast of Bali, north of Kuta and Legian. Originally a separate municipality, it is now just a suburb of Kuta. This area is very popular among foreign residents and land prices and housing are the highest in Bali. Many luxury spas and hotels abound. Due to its high density of high-end stores, together with the consolidation of the many fine eating establishments, it has quickly become one of the most popular tourist areas of the island.

Other well know areas popular with tourists include Ubud, Sanur, Nusa Dua, Jimbaran and Bukit Peninsula.

In addition to a few strip mall with restaurants, bars and good crafts / furniture shops, there are some major establishments: Ku De Ta, which is great (but reasonable) restaurant, a cult based on its beach side / semi-resort atmosphere, and Oberoi, which is expensive hotel ($ 400-800/night) and global reputation. The Firefly Restaurant is located north of Seminyak Beach, and is in force for over a decade.

Jalan Raya Seminyak (more often called Jalan Legian) bisects the region and acts as its main artery.
