Less is more ... rather than overwhelming you with volumes of travel tips, here is a specific list of exclusive recommendations with Mr & Mrs Crystal's stamp of approval.


La Lucciola

With a dramatic setting in a two storey, open air wooden pagoda, “La Looch” is Seminyak’s pioneer beachside dining spot and the perfect casual scene at sunset. Sarong clad waiters parade sumptuous Italian dishes and refreshing granitas. La Luciola also serves a great brunch. The perfectly manicured lawn in front is as picturesque as the ocean vista.

Also overlooking rice paddies, Sardine is an idyllic escape from the sometimes intense Seminyak beach scene. Try the superb seafood and organic produce from Sardine’s own farm.

Sarong has become an overnight success and it’s easy to see why. This Seminyak hotspot has it all – extravagance, intimacy and vibrancy. The Asian fusion menu is sublime making it almost impossible to choose what to order (but noting that the stir fry chilli crab is sublime!). A night-only venue, Sarong doubles as a lounge and bar, and has created an inspiring list of cocktails including zest martinis and cool mules. Don’t miss it.
