Local supermarkets are great not just for food shopping, but also 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 Seminyak can help you save a bunch of money rather than buying everything from the tourist strip.
I also have a post on the Best Shopping Malls in Bali in case you need some retail therapy rather than buying groceries.
Supermarkets in Seminyak Guide Map
While there are plenty of convenience stores around, sometimes you want to do some grocery shopping. 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 drygoods and not fresh fruit and vegetables or butchery items.
Updated: Bintang Supermarket
Following on from the fire that completerly destroyed Bintang Supermarket, they have built a temporary supermarket at the back end of the carpark. It’s quite well stocked and still very busy.
And it looks like construction on a new building is underway. I’ll update this post when it’s completed.
Further updates will be posted over time.
Bintang Supermarket is the most popular by far in the Seminyak area, stocking groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, beer, wines and spirits at relatively inexpensive prices and a range of cheap souvenirs perfect for filling up at the last minute for small gifts for the friends and family back home.
It’s conveniently located on the main road of Seminyak, although traffic can get fierce during peak hours.
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. Great for fresh fruit and vegetables, dry goods, cold meats and cheeses. I usually shop here when stocking up on dry goods and groceries.
Address: Jl. Sunset Road No.29, Kuta
Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 08:00 – 22:00
A huge supermarket 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 carpark.
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.
Address: Jl. Laksamana No. 65-67, Seminyak
Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 07:00 – 24:00
Great butchery, second only to Prime Cut Butcher, 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
I can’t recommend his services and his advice enough!
I randomly found Michael’s website a few months before our first trip to Bali and I am so thankful I did! We literally followed his tips exactly for getting through customs, buying a SIM card and getting out cash and it was so smooth. We booked an airport transfer and 4 full days with a private driver… which I was a little nervous about at first (just to be honest), but everything worked out perfectly. Having a private driver ensured we saw all we wanted without having to deal with the tricky local taxis and it gave us peace of mind knowing who we would be with every day. I can’t recommend his services and his advice enough!
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.
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 smallgoods.
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
There are Pepito Markets all over Bali, but the best in Seminyak is the one located in Petitenget. Limited but fresh stock of fruit and vegetables, dry goods and pharmacy items. Pretty much everything you need while on holiday. Give the butchery section a miss and go to Prime Cut or Frestive instead.
Small but reasonably priced selection of wines and spirits with car parking out the front and located across the road from one of my favourite bars, Ling Lings.
Address: Jl. Petitenget No.18, Petitenget
Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 07:30 – 23:00
If you’re going out grocery shopping, you have two transport options. Take a taxi, assuming you can get one on the meter and be dropped off, and get a Grab car back home, or a metered taxi.
This applies to all the supermarkets listed – except beware that 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).
My advice is to hire a private car and driver for the day, that way you don’t have to worry as my drivers will wait for you. 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.
