As a leisure des­ti­na­tion, Bali didn't use to be as­so­ci­ated much with shop­ping. The lux­ury re­treats, mush­room­ing spas and ex­quis­ite din­ing out­lets were hogging the spot­light back in the days. As time went by, how­ever, the al­lur­ing world of fash­ion and shop­ping started to show its pres­ence on the quaint is­land of Bali. Ar­ti­san shops and cu­rated, one-of-a-kind de­signs can be seen dot­ting Kuta and Seminyak strips. The num­ber of shop­ping cen­tres in Bali is also grow­ing, though it's rel­a­tively green com­pared to Jakarta – the city of malls. And on the is­land where the days are con­stantly beau­ti­ful, the sum­mer lasts all year long and peo­ple pre­fer to be out­side en­joy­ing it, build­ing a Jakarta-style shop­ping cen­tre can be tricky.

How­ever, in 2012, Beach­walk Shop­ping Cen­ter first opened its doors, pro­vid­ing a unique, neigh­bour­hood-ap­pro­pri­ate oa­sis, where fash­ion, lifestyle, culi­nary and en­ter­tain­ment come to­gether.

Located on the ever-pop­u­lar Kuta Beach, Beach­walk Shop­ping Cen­ter is de­signed to har­mo­niously com­bine the es­tab­lish­ment with the nat­u­ral sur­round­ings. The build­ing is semi-open air, with lush fo­liage sway­ing to the breezes just above the la­goon fish pond, seam­lessly blending the shop­ping strip with the charm­ing neigh­bour­hood.

The choices avail­able at Beach­walk are quite eclec­tic, but on the re­fined side. On the fash­ion front, youth­ful trend movers and shak­ers like ZARA, TOPSHOP and TOPMAN, H&M and Ur­ban Icon can be found packed daily, while more up­scale brands like Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Coach were re­cently opened to add to Beach­walk's al­ready im­pres­sive port­fo­lio. Fur­ther, there are also TUMI and Vic­to­ria's Se­cret.

A fam­ily-friendly hub, Beach­walk pro­vides a lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing to cater ev­ery mem­ber of the fam­ily. From wardrobe and toy shops for the kids like ELC and Mother­care, to pam­per­ing spots where the moth­ers and fa­thers can kick back and be primped like Rob Pee­toom Hair & Spa. Bookworms can find haven in Books & Be­yond book­shop, while movie buffs can head to Cin­ema XXI to catch the lat­est re­leases.

Aim­ing to pro­vide cus­tomers with the best shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence, Beach­walk Shop­ping Cen­ter reg­u­larly works to­gether with the ten­ants and or­gan­ises themed pro­grammes and pro­mo­tions that are def­i­nitely hard to re­sist. Ex­cit­ing events that can be en­joyed by peo­ple of all ages are also reg­u­larly held at Beach­walk, mak­ing it a great des­ti­na­tion to un­wind, es­pe­cially af­ter a long stroll along Kuta Beach.
