It’s been a long few months of waiting and we can all agree that this year has been a little crazy. For those of us who are still here in Bali, you’ll already know that our daily beach hangs and spa-days have well and truly been put on the back-burner.
Seminyak is positively spilling with uber-cool cafes, hip restaurants, cool beach clubs and late-night haunts and it’s safe to say we’ve all missed its iconic eateries. The good news is, slowly but surely we’re seeing some of our fave spots re-open their doors and welcome us back so we thought we’d share a few you’ll want to check out.
If you’re in the mood for freshly harvested and locally sourced seafood in a dreamy oceanfront location, you need to add SeaSalt to your list.

To help your peace of mind, the team has implemented enhanced measures for food preparation, set-up and service, so that you can dine with confidence.

Everyone’s favourite plant-based paradise, Kynd Community serves up a tasty menu alongside its signature baby pink stools and Instagram-worthy feature wall.
