INSIDE: Roam the Gnome’s Guide to Seminyak Square.
I hope I’m not the only one confused by ‘Seminyak Square’. I thought Seminyak Square was the luxury shopping mall in the Seminyak city centre, but that’s NOT Seminyak Square at all.
(It’s Seminyak Village, a western-style air-conditioned escape from the humidity and happy chaos that is Bali.)

Seminyak Square – The Open Air Mall
Seminyak Square is, in fact, the open-air row of shops right next door to Seminyak Village, about 25 metres away.
You can go from one to the other via both front and back doors of Seminyak Village, but they might as well be on different planets.
There’s little here to warrant a special trip EXCEPT an iconic Bali sign you can stand in front of for the quintessential instagram pic, but if you are wandering around looking for places to shop in Seminyak, pop in for a visit.
Things to do in Seminyak – Visit Seminyak Square Shopping Centre
Seminyak Square is a two-storey shopping arcade with boutique shopping, surfwear outlets, and restaurants located in the Seminyak city centre at Jl. Laksamana Oberoi/ Kayu Aya, Bali.
There’s a wide undercover corridor in front of the shops on both levels (the shade is welcomed!), and a green garden area with seating and tables too – the perfect spot to plan how to get to the next destination on your bucket list with free wifi to check your google maps!
These shops are on the ground floor of Seminyak Square shopping mall:
- Periplus Book Shop
- Mega Batik – traditional Indonesian batik
- Quiksilver – check out the discount rack for swimwear bargains in surfwear brands such as Billabong, Roxy, and Quicksilver too
- Surfer Girl
- Lilla Lane
- Body & Soul
- Art Market
- Vinoti Living
- World Brand Shop
- Guardian Chemist.
The Seminyak Square Hotel and Jaz B Beauty Salon & Spa are on the second floor.
The kids LOVED roaming MegaArt MegaMart – it’s a riot of colourful Balinese souvenirs and products as normal, and has aisles full of Balinese lollies and treats, chocolate milk, and cold drinks. Pick up your supply of Balinese mosquito repellents from their giant range. They also stock the famous Kispray ironing aid. If you are wondering where to shop in Seminyak for souvenirs, soaps, and kitschy novelties, this is the place.
Mega Mart has a nibbly fish foot spa and a place to order photo canvases of your trip for cheap too.
Homesick? Get your regular order at Starbucks metres away at Jl. Kayu Aya No.18B.
Seminyak Square Mall has places to eat too. Try:
- The Braga Cafe, The Spicery Deli, and Black Canyon coffee on the first floor
- Manfridays Fish & Chips, and Adrenalin Sports Bar are located upstairs.
Cheap shopping in Seminyak? Visit the Seminyak Square Market
Seminyak Square has a compact traditional Balinese fleamarket under marquee tents and pergolas out front.
There’s room to move, and try things on, and we found prices comparable for tshirts, dresses and trinkets to those on the main street, with much less stress and without the worry that the kids will run off into traffic. Big plus – the market owners are helpful and less pushy than the norm
You’ll find jewellery, handbags, Balinese art and a few select leather goods too.
