Designer boutiques, eclectic galleries, ubiquitous collections of decorative arts and luxurious spas predominate here. Seminyak is the pulse of fashion, mostly comprising designers from Indonesia and in-between regions. Sun, Sand, Sea and Surfing destination. Aptly known as "Island of Gods", nestled in the Indonesia archipelago and has WOW-ed millions of travelers.
