Street Style -
Ku De Ta.
The look? Chilled, boho. That 'I just came straight from the beach' vibe is what you're looking to channel, even if you did go home first and have a blow dry. Bikinis under dresses (in case you fancy a late night dip), sarongs (which you can buy here for as little as 50p on the beach), kaftans, jewelled sandals and Havianas. The main street in Seminyak is lined with lovely boutiques full of gorgeous beach cover ups and swim wear if you need to stock up.

Where to shop
The main shopping street in Seminyak is just at the end of Eat Street, Jalan Laksmana. It has several boutiques selling mainly kaftans, beach cover ups and silk dresses. Many of the factories making international designer goods are based here, so the snakeskin and leather products here are excellent quality and incredibly cheap. Don't panic if you've left your bikini at home, there are some amazing swim wear shops to choose from. I was shocked at how expensive some of the shops were. For real bargains head to the street stalls in Seminyak and the markets in Kuta are also worth a visit.

  1. Hi Bonnie,

    Do you have by any chance contact details for Ebiza, seminyak? I've been there a year ago and would like to contact them.
    thank you so much.

  2. HI there, i'm afraid I don't have the contact details, I asked them but they said they didn't have a website either. You might have to take a second trip out there. It's a good excuse ;)

  3. Do you remember what the address of Ebiza is? I have a friend there at the moment and want her to find me one of those snakeskin clutches that I saw in Bali last year.

  4. The contact details for ebiza is jln lasmana no. 43 x Br taman (oberoi) seminyak. email: ebizabali@yahoo .com. phone: 08123920170. another great place is abbraci at Jl basangkasa no. 141 seminyak. email: abbraci _shop

  5. I love the red snakeskin dress you wore in Bali. I've searched the internet for this dress, including Ebay but cannot find it. Any idea where I might be able to get this dress?
