So you’re planning a trip to Bali and it’s time to book your accommodation. Maybe you already have a few options lined up. Before making your final decision, you want to make sure the location is just right: close to the beach, within walking distance to restaurants, spas and shopping… but not too central as to be noisy. We all know how hard it can be to gauge all this just by looking at a map!
Chandra Villas is located in Seminyak… but where in Seminyak? Let’s take a closer look!
So, where is Chandra Villas located?
Chandra Villas sits in an enclave nestled between three of Seminyak’s most popular streets:
- Jalan Kayu Aya – aka Eat Street, home to Ultimo, La Favela, Revolver and many, many more
- Jalan Raya Basangkasa – a long street where you’ll find Bintang Supermarket, restaurants, spas and boutiques
- Jalan Camplung Tanduk – a lively strip leading down to Seminyak Beach, lined with restaurants, bars and cafes and bookended by the iconic Chez Gado Gado
This enclave is best described as a peaceful nook in the heart of the action. Here, our closest neighbours are other high-end villas and the streets are shaded by frangipani trees and lush bamboo. There’s no booming bassline from neighbouring nightclubs to keep you up at night.
During your morning walk to the local coffee stand (about 100 metres from Chandra), you might hear some doves cooing in the trees. If you need to pick up some poolside snacks or other essentials, there’s a minimart just a few steps from the coffee place. In between the two, there is a small Balinese temple – a lovely reminder of our island’s unique beauty.
What are the closest beaches?
The closest beaches to Chandra Villas are Seminyak and Petintenget Beach (essentially, they are the same long stretch of beach blending into one). The distance from the villas to the beach is about 700 metres and the walk over, takes just 10 minutes, if that. There are at least five beach clubs within a 2-kilometre radius, namely Ku De Ta, Mano Beach House, Alila Beach Bar, Mrs Sippy, and Potato Head.
How about the nearest restaurants?
When it comes to dining, you’ll really be spoiled for choice! Chandra Villas is located about a five-minute walk from Seminyak’s famous Eat Street. This is where you will find all those great restaurants your Bali going friends have been raving about. Try Ultimo for Italian food, Chandi for Pan-Asian cuisine, Mykonos for Greek fare… and the list goes on! There are plenty of family-friendly options in the local area, too.
You will find even more dining options on chic Jalan Petitenget which is also close by. This long and winding street is home to popular restaurants like Bambu, Kynd and Taco Casa. For an unforgettable dining experience, try one of the nearby beachfront venues! We love La Lucciola for their yummy Italian food and Seasalt for their sumptuous seafood brunch.

What about spas and shopping?
Seminyak is one of the best destinations for anyone looking to get pampered! While we might be partial to the ease and decadence of in-villa spa services, our neighbourhood is also home to some of the best spas on the island. Bodyworks, De Nyuh, Glo and Spring are just a few of the top-rated spas located in the area.
Now let’s talk shopping! Whether you’re looking to pick up some souvenirs or are wanting to update your wardrobe, Seminyak is a shopaholic’s dream come true. There are plenty of cute boutiques dotted along Eat Street (again, it’s just a moment’s walk from our villas), with global brands available at the Seminyak Square and Seminyak Village shopping malls. All your daily conveniences are covered too, as there are minimarts practically on every corner, the closest one being just 200 metres from our doorstep. The ever-popular Bintang Supermarket (which has just received a major facelift!) is also just a quick taxi ride away, or a 20-minute stroll if you feel like walking.
How about accessing other parts of Bali?
Bali is a large island with so much to see. Chandra Villas is the perfect home base for exploring the island, with trendy areas like Canggu and Umalas just moments away. If you want to explore further afield, we’re also just minutes away from Sunset Road. This is the main road that connects Seminyak to other parts of the island, so heading out for day trips will be a breeze. In Seminyak, you really have the whole island at your fingertips!
