Nowhere else in Bali will you find a comparable level of modern restaurants, retail shops for high fashion clothing and home interior design with other services on pedestrian friendly streets in close proximity to the beach. Within the last few years there has been a surge in foreign investment in this little beach town, manifesting in five-star hotels, gourmet restaurants and an infrastructure unparalleled in Bali.
Over the past few years the Seminyak area has evolved dramatically surpassing the Kuta and Legian areas for a high end beach life style by playing host to the best boutique shopping and restaurants in Bali, offering a diverse range of products that ranges from artefacts, clothing to gourmet foods to home furnishings. If you enjoy shopping, dining and nightlife, Seminyak is now the place to be.

About the owner and villa:
' A quiet and peaceful oasis in the middle of Seminyak. Maria's artistic eye is evident in her artwork, the food, the decor, not to mention her extensive resources in finding the best healers for one's specific needs. I came not knowing what to expect. With Maria as my guide, I am going home refreshed and relaxed." Dina C, Palm Beach Florida USA
