7 Best Supermarkets in Seminyak, Bali [Updated 2022]

Shopping in local supermarkets are great not just for food and groceries, but also for bargain-priced souvenirs, beer, wines and spirits, snacks and toiletries. This can be especially helpful if you’re staying in a villa, as the supermarkets in Bali can help you save a bunch of money rather than buying everything from the limited selection in the convenience stores located everywhere around the tourist strips.

I also have a post on the Best Shopping Malls in Bali in case you need some retail therapy rather than buying groceries.

Transport for Supermarket Shopping

If you’re going out grocery shopping, you have two transport options. You can take a taxi, assuming you can get one on the meter and be dropped off, do your shopping, and then try and get a taxi home again. Taxis will not wait for you while you do your supermarket shopping and have very little room for those grocery bags that always seem more than you set out to buy.

My advice is to book a private car and driver half day hire. The allocated 4 hours is perfect for getting some shopping done and back to your villa’s pool. I have a network of personally vetted, English-speaking drivers.

They text me when they pick you up and again when you have been dropped off at the end of the time. I also email your driver’s name, profile photo, vehicle photo and phone number beforehand to ensure your safety and provide confidence.

My drivers will also wait for you while you shop, or be on hand by text if they have to park further away and drive back to the entrance to pick you back up once you’re done.

This is especially helpful if you want to go to more than one supermarket or hit a shopping mall, some of which have supermarkets, for some retail therapy.


Bintang Supermarket (Reopended 2022)

Bintang Supermarket is, without doubt, the most popular and widely used supermarket by tourists in Bali. Located smack in the middle of Jalan Seminyak, Bintang Supermarket is my number one choice for general supermarket shopping (I live close by), followed by Grand Lucky.

During the pandemic, Bintang Supermarket burned down in a spectacular inferno and was replaced by temporary, much smaller premises down the back of the car park.

Bintang was completely rebuilt from the ground up and reopened to the public in July 2022. It’s a brand new building with a completely new design although the layout of the store, products and aisles are exactly the same as they used to be, just with much more room.

And by the way, contrary to popular belief the supermarket is not named after the beer – bintang means star in Bahasa.

The supermarket has a wide range of fresh fruit and vegetables (by Bali standards), groceries, dairy, dry goods, beer, wines and spirits, and a range of cheap souvenirs perfect for filling up at the last minute for small gifts for the friends and family back home. There is kitchenware and a limited range of hardware and stationary up on the 2nd floor.

It’s conveniently located on the main road of Seminyak, although traffic can get fierce during peak hours and car parking is limited, but plenty of motorbike parking in the front and along the side.

There are lockers at the front and down the back entrance to store backpacks and the like, which you may be asked to do by security to deter shoplifters (yes, unfortunately, that happens).

Lockers at Bintang Supermarket, Seminyak, Bali

Here’s my pro tip – if the front cashiers are super busy, try the extra 4 cashier lanes down the back on the left-hand side as they are often free. This will mean you exit at the back entrance which also makes a great spot to ask your driver to pick you and your grocery haul up if you took my advice and booked a private driver for a half-day shopping expedition.

Back Etrace at Binntang Supermarket, Seminyak, Bali

The meat and poultry section is worth avoiding in my opinion – go to Frestive on Jalan Kerobokan or Prime Cut Butchery instead, and if you want to splash out on some seriously good steak venture out to Meat Emporium in Umalas.

Address: Jl. Raya Seminyak No.17, Seminyak
Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 07:30 – 22:30


Grand Lucky Supermarket

Not far from Seminyak on Sunset Rd is Grand Lucky Supermarket. It generally has a better selection of fresh fruit and vegetables, cheeses and dairy than Bintang Supermarket. I usually shop here when stocking up on dry goods and groceries.

This is also my go-to when doing a supermarket shop when arriving from the airport (you did book your airport transfer, right?). Even though it’s o the opposite side of the road, and requires a couple of u-turns o Sunset Road, it’s still a hell of a lot easier than battling traffic into the heart of Seminyak getting to Bintang Supermarket.

Address: Jl. Sunset Road No.29, Kuta
Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 08:00 – 22:00


Transmart Carrefour

A huge supermarket and department store with everything from cheap clothing, homewares, electrical goods (I buy big-screen TV’s here for my villa), kitchenwares, fresh fruit and vegetables, butchery and an excellent seafood section.

Plenty of undercover parking for both cars and motorbikes with a taxi rank in the ground-level car park.

Address: Jl. Sunset Road, Denpasar
Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 08:00 – 22:00


Coco Supermarket Seminyak

All-purpose supermarket slap bang in the middle of Eat Street. Getting in and out by car can be downright impossible and there is no parking. It’s directly beside the Champagne Bar and opposite La Favela nightclub.

Coco Supermarket doesn’t have any parking and is a nightmare to get to and from in a car due to the insane traffic on Eat Street (Jalan Kayu Aya).

Address: Jl. Laksamana No. 65-67, Seminyak
Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 07:00 – 24:00


Frestive Kerobokan

Great butchery, this is where I do my meat shopping. Stocks consistently high-quality fruit and vegetables. Great selection of cold cuts and cheeses, limited but solid selection of dry and canned groceries and bathroom products.

Address: Jl. Raya Kerobokan, Kerobokan
Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 07:00 – 23:00


Prime Cut Butchery

New on the block is Prime Cut Butcher, located beside the inexpensive and popular Brazilian Aussie BBQ. This butcher has the best quality and very reasonably priced beef and lamb in Bali. They also have their own smokehouse for smoked hams, chicken, bacon and small goods.

If I’m hankering for a steak or lamb rack this is where I shop. Imported Australian beef and lamb can be outrageously expensive in Bali, but Prime Cut has prices that are just as competitive as butcher shops in Australia.

Address: Beraban Square, Kerobokan
Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 10:00 – 22:00


Pepito Market, Petitenget

Small but reasonably priced selection of wines and spirits with car parking out the front and is located across the road from one of my favourite bars, Ling Lings.

There are Pepito Markets all over Bali, but the best in Seminyak is the one located in Petitenget across the road from Ling Lings. Limited range of fresh fruit and vegetables, dry goods and pharmacy items, overpriced wines and spirits. Pretty much most things you need while on holiday without going to a larger supermarket.

Give the butchery section a miss and go to Prime Cut or Frestive instead.

Address: Jl. Petitenget No.18, Petitenget
Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 07:30 – 23:00


Meat Emporium

This is my go-to for some of the best cuts of steak in Bali. Located a few km from Seminyak in Umalas, it is worth the drive for some prime Australian beef.

Address: Jl. Bumbak No.44, Kerobokan
Opening hours: 9:00 am – 06:00 pm Mon-Sat


Bali Deli (Closed for Renovations)

The Bali Deli used to be the place to shop in Seminyak for groceries, butchery and fresh fish. But times have changed, and Bali Deli started downsizing, cutting corners, removing stock lines and perpetuating the downward spiral of a once-successful business. I wouldn’t bother going here at all. Better is Bintang Supermarket a couple of hundred metres around the corner.

Address: It used to be that popular back in the day, it’s located on a street named after it, Jalan Bali Deli.

Here’s a guide map to the best supermarkets in Seminyak. There are also a bunch of Pepito Express and small Coco Market outlets scattered around the tourist areas, but most of the small ones only carry dry goods and not fresh fruit and vegetables or butchery items.


Book a Private Car and Driver to go Shopping

My advice is to book a private car and driver half day hire. The allocated 4 hours is perfect for getting some shopping done and back to your villa’s pool. I have a network of personally vetted, English-speaking drivers.

They text me when they pick you up and again when you have been dropped off at the end of the time. I also email your driver’s name, profile photo, vehicle photo and phone number beforehand to ensure your safety and provide confidence.

My drivers will also wait for you while you shop, or be on hand by text if they have to park further away and drive back to the entrance to pick you back up once you’re done.
