International tourists are coming back to Bali and, after 2 years of travel ban that is excellent news indeed! As expected not everything is as before. So, What’s up and new in Seminyak (Bali)?

First, some small (and large) businesses had to closed down and won’t be reopening, secondly during the pandemic and Canggu was “the” place to be.As a result Seminyak (including Oberoi and Petitenget) are now considered quiet areas as the traffic and crowds are now mostly in Canggu!

And now, à table!

A second good news is that you won’t need to book ahead for lunch or even dinner in most of our recommended local eateries and restaurants. And if you need bookings, our manager extraordinaire will do that for you!

Our favorites these days are as follow :
