Bali Beach area - Seminyak or Jimbaran?

Jump to last reply

I originally posted asking about Sanur v. Jimbaran. Based on responses I received, we've decided against sanur and are now trying to decide between Seminyak (Sofitel)and Jimbaran (Intercontinental) for the beach part of our Bali trip. We had initially thought of Jimbaran because the beach seemed prettier & whiter and the area seemed more laid-back & more my image of Bali, though I'm having trouble finding photos of either area other than hotel photos. Marmot & KimJapan have both suggested Seminyak because of the nice shops & wide choice of good restaurants, and it is nice to be able to take a walk from the hotel to do some shopping & browsing without having to make it a day trip. On the other hand, we want to feel like we are in Bali & not a generic beach resort that could be anywhere. Can anyone give me more of a feel for these two areas? How commercial and "western" is Seminyak?
