This has just become the best place to shop and explore in the island of Bali and our friends at L’Officiel Malaysia have got it covered. Below is just a quick look at the story they curated, with a little help from Lexie Rodriguez.
When it comes to quick island getaways, Bali is definitely one of the region’s top favourites with its sun, sea, beach and, of course, the incredible shopping experience.
To add to the endless splendour in Bali, Seminyak Village is the new player in town, set to change your shopping experience for the better.
Located in the heart of the beach resort area of Kuta, Seminyak Village has risen to become one of the best shopping destinations to satisfy everyone – be it for fashion, beauty, lifestyle homeware and even holiday souvenirs.
Curated by the brilliant Eric van Bruggen, the Indonesian Emporium is a must-visit when in Seminyak Village. Packed with a myriad of locally made handicrafts, it is your one-stop souvenir store, saving you from hunting for bargains out in the heat.
Balinese silk wraps, jewellery, weave baskets and even wooden iPhone cases – you name it, they have it.
The next time you jet off to Bali, we suggest that you pack light as M Resort in Seminyak Village has a fine selection boutiques that offer luxurious resort wear.
Filled with a plethora of fashion collections from the likes of Missoni, Just Cavalli, Clover Canyon and Ancient Greek Sandals, your island wardrobe is sorted. Plus, packing light is just another reason for you to unleash your inner shopaholic.
When in search of good food, Seminyak Village will not disappoint. However if there is one place you need to pop by for that islander experience, it is definitely Nitrogenie for a cup of ice cream; there’s nothing better to beat the oppressive heat.
With each cup made to order with liquid nitrogen, the velvety ice cream, with zero icicle crisps, is all you can ask for. Our top pick is definitely the Salty Caramelly Popcorn flavour!
Love home decor, collectibles or little trinkets? Then head to the upper floors for Marketplace, another amazing multi-brand store you need to visit.
Hip, colourful and filled with fashionable goods, Marketplace will never disappoint. Some of our favourites here are the artisanal soaps by Desoap, homeware by Bali Luna and wanderlust-worthy textiles and cushions by The Walking Tree.
A favourite amongst both local and international fashionistas, no trip to Bali is complete without popping by the new MCM boutique in Seminyak Village for a little stylish pick-me-up.
The first-ever stand alone MCM boutique to open in Indonesia, this is the place to go to find the hottest bags and leather goods. You never know, you might be able to get your hands on some limited edition pieces that are sold out in your local MCM store. How great is that?
Seminyak Village Shopping Mall is located at Jalan Kayu Jati No.8 in Kuta and is open every day from 10 AM to 10 PM.
INSIDER TIP: There is a buggy service to chauffeur you to and fro selected partner hotels and Seminyak Village. All you need to do is visit the Seminyak Village or your hotel concierge to book a ride.
