Our marketing dream team is visiting Bali in a few weeks for ‘inspiration’ so they collected some Bali hot spots from staff, friends and guests from all over the world…. And off course the Amstel House is always happy to share …
Not the real Bali / Indonesia and more touristy by the day but still nice for a couple of days (and sooo much nicer than party tourist ghetto Kuta!). Seminyak has nice shops, clubs and restaurants.
Potatoe head: Nice food and drinks, at the beach. Pricey and touristy but cool place and nice swimming pool at the beach front.

La Plancha (at Double 6): local hangout, great for after beach drinks and beach parties
Batu Bolong: perfect little down to earth beach club to wind down with some corona’s after surfing
Echo Beach: great for surfing and lunch / drinks Continue reading
