Should We Stay in Legian or Seminyak?

Whether you’re a first time visitor to Bali or this beautiful island is your home away from home, the choice of accommodation and location for your holiday can make a huge difference!

We often hear this question of whether to stay in Legian or Seminyak, and regardless of whether this is your first or hundredth Bali adventure it can be handy to consider some key points.

  1. First and foremost; what kind of holiday do you want to have?

    Are you looking for a chance to rest and revitalise from your hectic life, spend most of your time lounging by the pool?  Or do you want to have adventures, get off the beaten track, and get amongst the hustle and bustle of Bali?

    Identifying your essential holiday requirements can be a great first step to help you decide where to stay.

    In general, people find Legian more action packed, real and gritty; it’s often referred to as the flashpackers paradise.  Narrow, winding paved gangs (lanes) lined with street traders selling a huge variety of colourful merchandise characterise this part of Bali.  Food of nearly every ethnicity abounds in the many restaurants that sit cheek by jowl
