Picture this: Lying under the cool shade of swaying palm trees, you feel a gentle sea breeze caress your face, playfully messing up your hair. With one hand, you try to smooth your hair over to a side, or tuck strands behind your ear in a hopeless effort to keep your hair tidy. With the other, you cradle your piña colada, adorned with a bright red paper umbrella. Sipping on your cocktail, you watch the lazy waves roll up and break into froth on the sandy shore.
Ahhh~ the island life. We all dream of it, we crave for it. After all, what could be better than doing absolutely nothing and soaking in the sun, sand and sea? And that, my friends, is the reason why you have to head for an island escapade at the tropical paradise of BALI.
If you’re planning a trip to this lush, idyllic island paradise and can’t decide on a place to stay, check out the newest kid on the block – Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach!

The best part of your tropical getaway is that beyond the hotel, Seminyak is a true gem that’s just waiting to be explored! Besides the usual lazing by the beach, swimming in azure waters and playing in the powder soft, white sand, Seminyak is just brimming with all sorts of activities that will suit every kind of traveller:
For the thrill-seeker, rush into the myriad of watersports that are available for you to try! Hotel Indigo Bali is near a number of beaches, including Seminyak Beach, Petitenget Beach and Kuta Beach.

The foodies will be very pleased at the number of eateries and warungs (a small family-owned restaurant or café) which dot the area. For those who are looking for something more authentic, you will easily find local cuisine such as Nasi Campur that is both cheap and fantastic at any local warung. Tuck into a huge platter of fragrant white rice, elegantly framed with side dishes and accompaniments of sweet traditional Lawar vegetables along with savory satay grilled to perfection and a Perkedel (fried potato cake). Drench everything in sambal matah (spicy shallot and lemongrass relish) and you’re good to go!
Don’t miss out on Naughty Nuri’s iconic pork ribs as well, known to be the best pork ribs in Seminyak. Delightfully juicy and tender, you’ll polish them off in no time.
Pining for an ice-cold treat to beat the heat? Go for one of these healthy smoothie bowls that’s packed with the goodness of fresh fruits, chia seeds, and coconut shreds. These tropical smoothie bowl delights can be easily found at most of the restaurants and cafés around the hotel! We highly recommend visiting Nalu Bowls Bali for this delicious treat!
For the cultured traveller that is into history and art, Seminyak will not disappoint. Spend your afternoons wandering around the different temples and art galleries that the area has to offer. From quiet, hidden Sangah temple to the more famous Petitenget temple, marvel at beautiful Balinese architecture and receive special Balinese blessings while you’re there.
Don’t miss out Nyaman Gallery and Biasa Art Space for a galore of contemporary pieces, created by up and coming local Balinese and Indonesian artists. Bare brick walls are embellished with paintings and photographs, and you’ll find a wide range of art pieces which include installations, carvings and other decors too.
There is even a corner filled with “wearable” art and other household ornament pieces which are carefully designed for living spaces. Who knows, you might find yourself getting an addition to your living room at home!
And of course, how could we forget the shopaholic? Rub shoulders with the locals at Seminyak Village and Seminyak Square where you’ll be able to find everything from fruit and vegetables to crafts and locally produced items like batik and leather goods.
The hip Seminyak area is also known for local designer boutiques and the occasional flea markets selling unique accessories and beach dresses! Go ahead and shop till you drop right here – you don’t have to worry about lugging your buys around, because the hotel’s just a short walk away should you need to head back and dump your shopping bags.
