About the neighborhood
Umalas, which sits on the outskirts of Seminyak, is fast becoming one of the smartest places to stay in Bali. Whilst retaining the old Bali charm of small laneways, traditional housing and the Balinese going about their everyday lives, Umalas offers modern conveniences such as local warungs (shops) to stock up on supplies, small restaurants and cafes and conveniences such as fabulous hairdressers and spas. Located just 5-10 minutes west of the centre of Seminyak, with its hundreds of world class bars and restaurants, and amazing retail, and 5-10 minutes north of Canggu, with its fabulous beaches (and beach clubs!!!), Umalas offers peace, quiet and easy access to everything you may need during your holiday.
Getting around
You can explore Umalas by foot or motorbike to really appreciate the traditional feel. For further flung adventures, there is a taxi rank a short stroll from our front doors, or we can arrange a taxi or private driver for you.
