Seminyak is widely considered one of Bali’s most upscale and luxurious areas, particularly Petitenget. Not only are the resorts top-notch here, so is the boutique shopping. If you can only spend a couple hours shopping here, we recommend that you venture to these top picks.

Clothing

Lulu Yasmine - one of the leading fashions brands in Bali, Lulu Yasmine has four shops in Bali today. Their mission is to empower women, so it is no surprise that they specialise in dresses, blouses, skirts, and other beautifully crafted womenswear. The breezy, beautiful garments reflect the local Balinese lifestyle perfectly.

Uluwatu Lace - lace in the morning, lace in the afternoon, lace in the evening; lace is for every occasion at Uluwatu Lace. Born and bred in Bali, this brand has grown to sell at more than 10 boutiques around the island. Just recently, they added a menswear collection. While delicate to the touch and exquisite to the eye, the lace garments for day to day fashion, wedding dresses, and linens are actually very practical and comfortable.

Accessories

Rabia - Bali-based jewellery designer Rabia Bullough sells her gorgeous pieces in a store in her namesake. She strikes a balance between conventional and unconventional, new-wave and traditional. Simple necklaces, earrings, and bracelets in a variety of metals are on display next to pieces bedazzled with onyx, moonstone, turquoise, or carved wood.

Sea Gypsy - in Bali, silver jewellery is often the name of the game and no one plays it better than Sea Gypsy. Necklaces, rings, bangles, and earrings come in all shapes and sizes at a comfortable price point. Most of their collections are inspired by the ocean and a nomadic spirit, but they are all made locally in Indonesia.

Homewares

SOUQ - part boutique, part café, SOUQ is the consummate one stop shop. A souq is a bazaar-type of market usually found in Middle Eastern countries; SOUQ in Seminyak takes that model and boosts it. SOUQ honours local artisans who specialise in a traditional craft or skill by working with them to create unique homewares. The café within SOUQ sources locally and ethically also, furthering their mission to bring integrity and honour to the community.

HOBO - one store with an eclectic mix of every kind of home accessory you can imagine. From furniture to wall art to vases and lanterns, this shop can fulfill every practical and fantasy design wish. HOBO uses local materials, both new and reclaimed, as well as Balinese techniques, such as batik, in their products.

Surf & Swim

Drifter Surf Shop & Cafe - what would Bali be without a surf store that has achieved near cult status? Drifter sells menswear, kidswear, surfboards, surf gear, art, and even has a café. While there is not a specific women's section, all are welcome to this legendary shop and get into the surf lifestyle.

Thaikila - formerly known as Blue Glue Bikinis, Thaikila specialises in comfortable, sexy bikinis. Their designs are quite glamorous with hand-sewn embellishments. If wearing a bikini feels too exposed, shop their coverups, bags, and other swimwear accessories.

Shopping Centre

Seminyak Square - instead of going from stand alone store to stand alone store, the Seminyak Square brings all of the stores to one central location. There are two levels in the entire Square, each filled with shopping and dining opportunities galore.
