Bali Shopping: Seminyak

We share our best Bali shopping finds.


If you’re anything like me, chances are you love to have a good shop whilst your travelling. Nothing beats finding these few perfect unique pieces whilst perusing the globe. Shopping in Bali is a little different than most Asian destinations. Unlike the hustle bustle of Hong Kong, Singapore or China, traditional ‘mall’ shopping doesn’t exist here. The best boutiques and shopping destinations are scattered around different streets, so it really does take a bit of exploring (or some good advice!) to seek them out. Here are some of our best finds in Seminyak…

Gooseberry Intimates

A French lingerie label made in Bali

One of our best finds of late, both Sharon and I are obsessed with their thin triangle bras. The perfect bra to wear under strappy dresses and cut away tank tops. The designs are beautifully made and perfectly suited to balmy Bali weather.

Address: Jalan Kayu Aya No.117 (Laksamana Oberoi)


Lily Jean Oberoi

Boho Chic store stocking Lily Jean resort wear, Adina and others.

Stunning fabrics and well cut dresses, this store caters for these who love finding that little something different. The stock is constantly changing so even if you are only in town for a couple of days, it’s worth popping back more than once! One of my favourite finds is pictured below by a fairly new brand called Maille & Soi and I’ve lived in it ever since. This brand is one to watch! For these who can’t wait for the next trip to Bali, check out her online store.



Oy Surf Apparel

Active + flattering surf wear

On our last trip to Bali, we were lucky enough to have a viewing Oy Surf Apparel’s showroom in the outskirts of Seminyak and what a find!

I have often struggled finding the right swimwear, especially styles that are suited to surfing due to my larger chest and frame. Standard string bikinis don’t cut it in the surf and sports bras are not designed for the sea. The search was over after finding Oy Surf Appeal. The thread through designs offers support plus they are super flattering. Oy Surf Apparel are designed by active women for active woman. The majority of the range is revisable and backed with contrasting colour (two styles for the price of one!)

They have a few spots located Bali plus have a great exchange policy if you are tempted to buy online. Surf lovers, I highly suggest you check out their site below.
