Welcome to Bali—where dreamy tropical nightlife isn’t just a mere dream
Bali is more than just a destination—Bali is an aspiration, a perspective, a disposition. Be it diving, surfing, partying, or simply sight-seeing, Bali has everything one could ever ask for in a tropical destination. It is home to the spiritual and is a place of ardent worship of the Hindu Gods. With breathtaking natural beauty and numerous picturesque settings, Bali simply exudes that quixotic quality that a lot of people can’t help but be attracted to. Offerings to the Gods that consists of several kinds of flowers and plants can be seen literally everywhere, at all levels of society embrace their cultural heritage. It’s not rare to find major roads temporarily shut down due to huge ceremonies by the local communities as they march into the temples and back. Everything in Bali is spiritual and you’ll find the tiny little things from the everyday lives around you if you take the time to look closer. In this sacred tropical island where modern life blends in with the ancient belief, Sea Vu Play is delighted to settle its beached boat as the crew paused its search for the Atlantics. Right now, Bali is the place to be. Holidays in Bali is everything you’d expect from a tropical destination and more. Volcanoes are still active and are also a place of worship, in a way. Gunung Agung—in which “gunung” means “Mountain” in Bahasa—is the tallest of all mountains where major ceremonies are held throughout the years. A famous temple in the mountain called “Pura Besakih” is the center of the spiritual activities, and if you’re lucky when you visit the mountain while you’re in Bali, you’ll spot hordes and hordes of locals wearing their ceremonial outfits after or during their praying. Aside from Bali’s biggest mountain temple, there exist hillside temples such as Pura Luhur Batukaru, one of the major temples visited by locals for worships. In terms of distance, Luhur Batukaru temple is much closer to the heart of the buzzing Bali, namely Kuta, Legian, and Seminyak for approximately 1,5 hours to 2 hours by driving, whereas Besakih temple took around 2,5 to 3 hours. You can easily spend a whole day in the mountains and temples including the drive to the location.
Once you’ve got your fill of the spiritual atmosphere of Bali, you might want to spend the next day simply exploring the town. Bali is an embodiment of modern island life, and you’re going to feel every beat and each pulse of its vibrant activities offered in Bali’s all-sunny weather. Nightlife in Bali is centered at the Southern parts generally referred to as Badung regency. Sanur in Denpasar being the first region developed for a centered Balinese tourism. A very laid-back counterpart of the areas located even more South known as Kuta, Legian, and Seminyak, and to an extent, Nusa Dua. The now-vibrant scenes that burst with life during both day and nighttime were once filled with coconut trees, farms and rice fields. Now, the area is filled with some of the best establishments—restaurants, clubs, bars, entertainment center—in Asia by extension. Development was rapid in the last several decades that, despite being a small island compared to most of Indonesia’s economic centers, Bali is one of the most developed areas of Indonesia thanks to the tourism scene.

Or maybe you can do some window shopping for jewelry, grow your collections with more pieces of silver and gold. A fun 3D gallery is also something you might want to try out for some wacky photos of you and your friends or your kids, creating fun memories together. If a more traditional day out is something you’d like to enjoy more, then visiting Seminyak ancient landmark, Pura Petitenget, would be something you’d appreciate. Speaking of which, the temple is the mere walking distance from Sea Vu Play and is evidently the namesake of the street Sea Vu Play is located in.
In the midst of busy streets of Seminyak, Pura Petitenget is a serene, peaceful location where locals pay their worship. The street that runs parallel to the temple, Jalan Petitenget, is clearly named after the temple itself. Petitenget Beach can be reached by foot as it’s super close to the temple. The area used to be a forest where peasants pray in the temples to protect them against illness and starvation. Another temple is within the vicinity of Pura Petitenget as well, known as Pura Masceti Ulun. While this day, Seminyak is a bustling city that does not seem to sleep, in ancient times, it was forested, and people at that time believed there were dark spirits that could cause illnesses. Building the temples are believed to grant people protection. Take your time to listen to the birds chirping within the temple area. Catch a glimpse of the Balinese burning incense and presenting offerings called “banten” to the Gods. Religious ceremonies are even grander as the streets are guaranteed to become crowded with pedestrians in their ceremonial outfits walking together to pray at the temple. If you’re particularly fortunate, you might catch a beachside ceremony that’s seemed even more colorful. It’s good luck that Sea Vu Play venue is located near the sacred temple. Enjoying the serenity that the temple provides, and coming back to the pumping life of Seminyak would give you a pretty dynamic day. Going for a late lunch or an early dinner for a nice, charcoal-grilled barbecue that opens at 11 am after a short visit the temple is a nice way to spend a relaxing day. Sea Vu Play offers a selection of scrumptious meat, seafood, as well as fresh and crunchy vegetarian options.
Seminyak is a place known to be on a higher end compared to its neighboring areas. The nightlife is often geared towards a more refined audience—or at least that’s what people often say. But not to worry, that doesn’t mean flip-flops and beach tops are not welcome to have a fun-filled, memorable experience of nightlife in Bali. A certain nautical-themed venue exists just for you to drum your feet on, swing your legs sporting beach shorts, and dance the night away. This fun philosophy is reflected throughout Sea Vu Play’s whole venue. From the deco of the boat-shaped bar that retells the story of the good old boat, Sammy beached on the island. Bali itself is an island that is purely an embodiment of laid-back atmosphere and relaxation, and Sea Vu Play embraces this. City development occurred at such a rapid pace, causing the streets in Seminyak to become congested over the years, don’t let it ruin your holiday. Traveling in the late afternoon around 6 pm to 7 pm more or less is guaranteed to be met by a congested traffic, but much of Seminyak’s delight should be discovered by foot. Take a walk to the numerous boutiques and spas lining up the streets. Take your pick, or simply visit them all.
Nightlife in Bali just does not seem complete if spent in a place that seemed to fall flat, or one with a decor that you can practically find at every corner of Bali. At Sea Vu Play, we take our deco very seriously. Serious enough that Sea Vu Play built a whole bar shaped like a boat, ready to take off (just kidding—but the boat shape part is correct). Fishnets are hung at beach cabins acting as a divider between the sofa designed to house a big group of people. Nautical vibes overflow as white vintage hawsers complete the picture. Palm trees are planted everywhere the eyes could see, vibrant greens with a splash of light yellow, strengthening the beachside theme of the place. The atmosphere gets even livelier once night falls, like fairy lights wrapped around the numerous palm trees are light up. Sea Vu Play captain known as Sean embodied his simple approach to life; the most important thing is to have fun! Be it a beverage, food, or deco, Sea Vu Play sets forth a new standard in its own league and triumphs.
