Best Seminyak Villas 4 Kids

in Families by
Casa Brio Seminyak Family Villa

Great places to stay in Seminyak with more than two kids? Sure. Somewhere for all ages to enjoy? Yep. Bringing your friends? Nice. Oh they have kids too? Okay. It’s gotta be gorgeous and memorable? Photogenic, got it. Safe, convenient, comfortable? Of course. Classy and affordable for four adults? Sure thing. Near the beach? Naturally.

We have plenty of that. Rent your own tropical oasis, a fully-staffed luxury home away from home with plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Elite Havens’ Bali luxury villas come with a private chef equally adept at preparing gourmet feasts for the adults and fun children’s meals to tempt even the fussiest eaters. Some villas are better set up for toddlers than others, but any extra amenities you may need, such as pool fence or car booster seat can easily be arranged for a small hire charge. One of the great advantages of staying in a villa is the highly personalised service, and if need a little adult-only time, friendly staff will happily help keep an eye on the kids, or organise a baby sitter so you can hit the island’s latest hotspots.  

Our 4 Best 4 Bedrooms 4 Kids… in vibrant seaside Seminyak, Bali?

Here they are. With sensible sleeping arrangements for holidays with kids (some with adjacent rooms for parents and children, others with a designated bunk room for a bunch of kids) they’re all just minutes from the palm-fringed beaches, fabulous restaurants, cool bars and stylish boutiques that Seminyak is famous for.

Bento, yakitori and sushi in Bali

in Destinations/Dining by

You have to love a cuisine that managed to invent another flavor. Umami refers to that extra layer of deliciousness that defies description.

Japanese food has infiltrated the far corners of the world, satiating our interest as well as our appetites. Read on to discover Japanese restaurants and places to order sushi in Bali, Indonesia.

Sake no Hana

contemporary Japanese

Sake no Hana may be new in Bali but they come with a serious reputation in other parts of the world, most notably in London’s fashionable Mayfair. Described as contemporary Japanese, Sake no Hana’s Executive Chef travelled from London to create this menu and it is filled with temptation and flavor. From their signature menus, which offer exotic imports like Kobe beef, Hamachi sashimi and Alaskan king crab, to bento boxes to a scale of signature menus, this is worth the splurge.

Overlooking the sparkling new daytime destination, Omnia, on the Uluwatu coast, Sake no Hana is filled with light by day. At night, as the club closes, it becomes a sophisticated destination restaurant. With a refreshingly different menu of bespoke cocktails alongside some wonderful wine and sake selections, Sake no Hana adds sophisticated new flavours to Uluwatu. 

Top tip: leave room for desserts, which are beautiful, creative and delicious.

Ryoshi

sushi, yakitori and jazz

Ryoshi’s owner, Sagon Togasa, opened his first Ryoshi in Seminyak to house his two great loves; sushi and jazz. It still does that and more. With Ryoshi now in Sanur, Ubud and offering welcome respite to shoppers in Galleria, the menu has expanded alongside the empire.

At heart is the sushi window, with chefs slicing sushi and sashimi to order, fresh seafood is also part of the philosophy. There are grills, braises and rice bowls. A range of delicious kushiyaki, grilled food on sticks, and some delicious vegetarian options.

Agadashi tofu is a hit here as is the Japanese steak, the traditional fried chicken and steaming bowls of udon with your choice of toppings. Best of all it’s ultimately affordable.

Top tip: Monday night is the most popular night as the jazz is always world class, head upstairs and take a seat in the restaurant or hang out at the bar.

The Savage Kitchen – Bali restaurant review

in Dining by
savage kitchen berawa bali restaurant and bar

Located in Berawa, bridging the gap between the cool Seminyak scene and the hip hangouts in Canggu, Savage Kitchen has the chance to play by their own rules.

By day, Savage is a health-driven café. From breakfast through to dinner, fans of The Savage Kitchen love their anything goes approach. Build your own meals with a list of basic ingredients that can then be piled high with all the things you love.

At night, the air-conditioned space at the back opens up as a neighborhood bar and restaurant that is as much of a hang out as it is a restaurant. The food here plays with more grown up concepts and is morphing into a seriously delicious destination that ticks a lot of boxes for food lovers.

When the crew from The Savage Kitchen were changing things up a little in the back, they added a great long bar and lounge to make the nights in Berawa a little less lonely, with the addition of a great neighborhood hangout.

Sharing is a popular concept here and the dining room is divided into softly lit tables for two or four. On the opposite side of the dining room large sharing tables are where friends and family can sit down to a whole roasted rib of beef, a leg of lamb, a roasted chicken or a fragrant, whole baked Barramundi

The trimmings are laid on for a family-style feast, to pass around, share and enjoy together. This is the beauty of Savage Kitchen; you really can design your own meal and create your own experience.

The Savage BistronomyAll day dining.

From early morning breakfasts feature smoothie bowls and granola with fresh fruit, to full tilt omelettes, smashed avocado plates piled high with roasted tomatoes and poached eggs, to pancakes or slabs of home-made sourdough toast with wild preserves. They got this one covered and the coffee, needless to say, stars!

Lunch is big, from salad bowls to sandwiches, burgers or vegetarian plates piled high with colour, couscous salad or wild rice, pastas and more. Add a little cheese, chicken, pile up some roasted beef or keep it clean and vegan. It’s all about getting what you want. And with an all-day menu, you can rock up anytime.
