Need a break from the sun? Grab your tote bags and head to Seminyak for a restorative day of retail therapy along Jalan Laksmana Oberoi. Fuel up with a hearty Aussie-style brunch (don’t skip the corn fritters) and a flat white coffee, of course, at the Corner House. Begin browsing at Magali Pascal, a Paris-meets-Bali boutique; if you indulge in only one piece make it the Bourgeois Bohème frock. Romantics will swoon over Lulu Yasmine’s slinky silk dresses, hand-beaded pieces, and limited-edition print maxi dresses. Slip into a pair of all-the-rage gladiator sandals—or any of the gorgeous footwear with traditional Indonesian Kerawang embroidery—at Uma and Leopold. Add pop to your wardrobe at This is a Love Song (Katy Perry is a fan). If you’ve not lost shopping steam, explore Seminyak Village. This two-story glass and steel mall houses big names like Farah Khan, MC2 Saint Barth, Ashley Isham, and Shakuhachi. Finally, put your feet up at Spring Spa. Opt for their Spring Massage (250,000 rupiah) which focuses on easing tensions in the legs and arms—perfect for the exhausted shopper.
Hire a taxi to take you down to Seminyak, a 40-minute drive away. Catch a return taxi anywhere along the main road, but be sure to use one with a meter.
