Ever the popular hotspot in Bali, Seminyak is a buzzing melting pot of beaches, shopping, bars, and some of the best restaurants on the Island of the Gods.
With so much on offer at the cosmopolitan Seminyak, choosing a place to stay can be overwhelming, given the sheer number of accommodation options. Luxurious, private, affordable, and romantic – here are some of the best Airbnbs in Seminyak. Let’s take a look, shall we?
Villa Safari – Most Private Villa
Exclusivity and seclusion will be at the centre of your stay at Villa Safari. This Seminyak Airbnb is pristinely decorated in mainly white and turquoise hues and has the ability to make you feel like you’re at your own private resort due to its immaculately designed private pool area, complete with a romantic gazebo. Located in a quiet little lane just off the main road, this villa offers some much-needed peace in an otherwise busy area. If you’re big on seclusion, Villa Safari is the perfect oasis among Seminyak villas.
Villa Sundari – Best Airbnb with a Pool
One look at Villa Sundari’s stunning pool and your jaw will drop in amazement. Seriously, this Seminyak Airbnb’s outdoor area is stunning! Worthy of a 5-Star resort, Villa Sundari’s teal pool is super unique because of its multi-dimensional quality. More than just your average rectangular-shaped pool, this pool slides in and out of the physical structure of the villa and even has its own bridge. The villas are spacious, cozy and beautifully decorated. This Airbnb is no doubt one of the best private villas in Seminyak.
Minggu Villas – Best Airbnb for a Group Trip
Did we hear you say pool party? Minggu Villas offers plenty of space for guests to hang out and socialise with each other, making it the ideal venue for an awesome group trip with your friends. Fit for a bachelor (or bachelorette) pad, this Seminyak Airbnb not only boasts an open plan living area that flows outside to the pool, but also its own sauna, gym and 360-degree spinning bed. Did we mention it also has four bedrooms? Yeah, it’s got pretty much everything you need, making it one of the best Airbnbs in Seminyak.
Villa Meraviglia – Best Location
With a loft-style design, stunning Villa Meraviglia is a great choice out of this selection of Seminyak rentals due to its strategic location. Just a few minutes’ walk from busy Oberoi Street (where Seminyak’s best restaurants and bars are), this villa manages to retain its exclusivity by being tucked away on a quiet, private road – far enough from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak to offer you privacy and convenience. This is definitely one of the best-located Seminyak Airbnbs in a sea of private villas in Seminyak.
Villa Sanook – Best Airbnb for Families
There’s nothing like some good ‘ol family time. Villa Sanook is a suitable choice for large families as it features 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, breakfast served to you daily, and 24-hour security to make sure everyone is safe and sound at all times. One of the most tropical Seminyak rentals, Villa Sanook’s pool is adorned with several Balinese trees and neatly cut grass. For a comfortable, safe and nature-filled stay, don’t look past these Seminyak villas.
Lavish Villa – Most Trendy Airbnb
After you stay at Lavish Villa, you’ll see why this Seminyak Airbnb is one of the coolest villas on the block. Mixing touches of wood, intricate light fixtures, and greenery, the aesthetic of Lavish Villa is fit for the cover of an interior design magazine! Seriously chic and stylish, Lavish Villa’s pool area also features a pool bar with a swinging chair you can chill out on, and not one, but two kitchens – how neat is that?
The Layer – Most Luxurious Airbnb
Okay, so get this – The Layer features an incredible pool deck, tapered sail-like roofs, panoramic views of verdant gardens, contemporary décor, and a buggy ride to take you anywhere in the complex. You sold? We think yes. Set amid an exclusive, prestigious villa estate, these Seminyak rentals are truly special. However, ultimate luxury won’t come with a cheap price tag; these villas are one of the more expensive on this list of best Airbnbs in Seminyak.
The Peppers Seminyak – Best Airbnb Near the Beach
Calling all beach lovers – these private villas in Seminyak are for you. Apart from being beautifully designed and furnished, the Peppers Seminyak is merely minutes away from Petitenget Beach, which means you can soak in Bali’s sun as long as you want before retreating to these luxurious Seminyak villas. Other points of interest that guests can walk to include Potato Head Beach Club, KU DE TA, The W Hotel, Petitenget Temple, and practically all of the area’s best restaurants, bars and clubs.
Spacious Penthouse – Perfect Honeymoon Villa
This Spacious Penthouse is perfect for your honeymoon because of its ample space. Even though this Seminyak Airbnb holds only one bedroom and wouldn’t be suitable for larger groups, couples will no doubt enjoy the romantic, tropical vibe flowing through Spacious Penthouse. You’ve got a jacuzzi, sofa deck, a huge master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, and stunning decorations. While this Seminyak villa isn’t the best choice for a boys’ or girls’ trip, we think you and your significant other will fall in love with Spacious Penthouse.
City Apartment – Best for Solo Travellers
Sometimes it’s better to go at it alone – and if you do, this City Apartment will tick off all your needs and wants. Definitely not as luxurious as some of the other Seminyak rentals on this list, what these quaint Seminyak villas lack in lavishness, they make up for in affordability. With some overnight stays going for as little as 30USD, the cozy and compact City Apartment is easy on the budget for travellers staying in Bali by themselves. Plus, this apartment is only a short walk from Kuta Beach.
Happy Together – Best for Digital Nomads
From the moment you lay eyes on the cactus plants, pink flowers, and wooden doors at the entrance, you get a sense that this Seminyak Airbnb is definitely going to be one of the more unique and quirky entries on this list of best Airbnbs in Seminyak. A perfect space to get creative or productive, Happy Together is also one of the smaller and more compact Seminyak villas in the area. But don’t let that deter you – these villas are still extremely chic, self-sustainable and close to amenities, making them ideal for digital nomads who want to be near facilities while still being able to work.
Clio – Best Budget Airbnb
Going for as low as 45USD a night, the stylish Seminyak ‘Clio’ studio is a strategic choice for the budget-conscious. Although it doesn’t feature a private pool or the same high-quality materials used in other private villas in Seminyak, the Clio villas are still stylish in their own way. With a beautiful communal garden, a kitchenette, and comfy double bed, Clio has everything you need for an enjoyable, self-sustainable stay in Seminyak.
Villa Vayu – Most Local Experience
Decked out in Balinese decorations and bright colours, the Villa Vayu is the Seminyak Airbnb that offers the most authentic local experience. Immerse yourself in Balinese vibes as you fall asleep under a straw-thatched roof, surrounded by local flora and fauna and distinctive local artwork. With its one-of-a-kind details, guests can experience a slice of Balinese culture while staying very close to the busy area of Seminyak and having access to their own private pool – sounds good to us!
Ocean Penthouse – Amazing View
Ocean by name, ocean by nature. The Ocean Penthouse offers breathtaking views of – you guessed it – the ocean. One of the only Seminyak Airbnbs on the list that offers a view, guests are treated to a bird’s eye view of Seminyak beach and its surroundings. The highlight of this property is the rooftop pool bar, which offers tasty cocktails, shisha options, and pumping music. Squarely located in the busy area of Seminyak, choose the Ocean Penthouse if you love a good view and don’t mind a bit of noise.
Petitenget 501 Boutique Lofts – Best Airbnb Near Bars and Restaurants
This collection of lofts in Seminyak offers a bit of everything. Clean, spacious and affordable, its main advantage is its proximity to the beach, as well as Seminyak’s world-renowned bars and restaurants. With iconic establishments such as Mrs Sippy, Garden Gangsta, KYND Community, Potato Head Beach Club and KU DE TA just footsteps away, you can stay in this relaxing Seminyak Airbnb while filling up your appetite – and camera roll, with shots of all the beautiful food you can have in the area.
Whether you’re a person who loves views, privacy, design or affordability – this list of best Airbnbs in Seminyak caters to every need you might have. One of our personal highlights on this list is the Villa Sundari, simply for that unforgettable pool that we just can’t get over. Another Seminyak rental we adore is Lavish Villa because of its supremely on-trend interior design. However, our ultimate favourite is The Layer. Despite being slightly more expensive, we cannot get past its 5-star resort qualities and ridiculously gorgeous design. In saying this, the final choice is yours. Where will you stay in Seminyak?
