Bali Residential

If you take a look at a map of the western coastline of Bali and find Kuta, then this is where our tour commences, so as to get your bearings The popular area on the west coast of the island goes like this – Kuta, Legian & Seminyak, along with Umalas, Kerobokan & Canggu all opening up further for residential.
Jimbaran, Nusa Dua and The Bukit are located in the very south of the island, Sanur lies on the east coast, while Ubud is located only 45 mins towards the centre of Bali.
Kuta was the very first beachside area to be discovered by tourists in the 1970′s.
The area is now made up of hundreds of restaurants & bars, shops & markets plus a large range of hotels to suit all budgets.

Legian is the continuation of the Kuta area with a similar profile, both areas attract the younger market due mainly to the inexpensive offering of restaurants, bars and
cheap lodgings, This area is well known for their beachside casual restaurants, as well, it’s a major area for learning to surf.

Seminyak is the next area to develop along the western coastline and which became the prime target for a growing band of property developers, consequently Seminyak
has become a major enclave for expats that call Bali home and also the many visitors that arrive in Bali for their vacation.

With this growing residential area, hotels, shops and restaurants came into being and due to the overall popularity Seminyak has continued to grow quickly, spreading further
north into the wide area of Canggu taking in popular surfing beaches of Echo & Seseh, then moving away from the coast to areas such as Umalas and Kerobokan.

Today Seminyak is viewed as the most sought after area to live in, to stay in, to shop in, to enjoy a spa in and to dine in! There are numerous houses often referred
to as villas to lease along with some very smart hotels and apartments.

Seminyak is the leading area for all kinds of shopping for fashion and home. Fashion serves up casual chic, smart resort to glitz and glam luxe, stores to visit are many but
a handful of names – Namu, Lilla Lane, Lily Jean, Uma & Leopold, Inti boutique and Pura Vida. Furniture and home decor stores take you from Teak a Coco, Carga,
Disini, Living Karma, the Orchard and Bagatelle.

Of course the best of restaurants and bars are located within the immediate area too, either situated on the beach (perfect for sunset cocktails) or the main thoroughfare,
