3 Best Reasons to Shop at Bintang Supermarket Seminyak Bali

Take a look and see why Bintang Supermarket Bali is a top spot to buy food and gifts. 

No.1: Learn about local food culture

Kids can learn so much by comparing what’s on the shelves and in the fridges in a Bali supermarket to home.

Seeing the costs of things such as fresh vegetables or meat compared to home is an eye opener too. Learning about the affordability of foods in different places can help kids see how lucky they are. 

PS: Buying new Balinese foods to test and try is all part of the fun.  

We’re making it our family mission to try all the different chocolate bars in the world.

(We bought Bali Pod chocolate to try)

You can set yourself a chocolate bar challenge too!

What to buy at this Supermarket in Bali? 

You can buy so much at the Bintang supermarket Bali.

But these are the top 7 things we recommend.

No.1: Really Unnecessary Toys!

Ned and Jack told me to tell you that the best aisle at Bintang Supermarket is the wall FULL of toys at the back of the shop.

Bintang supermarket has a range of cheap toys to keep the kids amused when on holidays.  

Bintang-supermarket-bali-toys-for-sale-pic

What to do on a rainy day in Bali? 

If I’m ever going to give in and buy the plastic crap or the cheaply made toys, the time is when it’s a rainy day in Bali.

A rainy day when all normal holiday plans are postponed, and it’s time to retreat and be cooped up in the hotel room.

The kids make the most out of these toys while they play, but we make it our mission to pass them on in good condition to local kids before we leave.

Where to buy inflatable pool toys in Bali? 

Bintang supermarket is also a top spot to buy cheap inflatable pool toys and floaties to use in the hotel or villa swimming pool, or at the beach, if you forget to pack them in your suitcase. 

(You can also find them at Carrefour supermarket on Sunset road) 

 BYO pool noodle, kick boards and inflatable floaties from home if you can. They are better quality. Then pass them onto another family when you leave. 

Hot tip: Want to up your Bali instagram pics? HIRE giant unicorn inflatables, flamingos, rubber ducks, pineapple lilo mats and fruit shaped floatie rings from We Float Bali.

No.2: Cup of noodles.

Just add hot water, like at home.

Noodles are a cheap lunch or afternoon snack for hungry bellies, when you don’t want to be paying hotel prices or calling room service for back up.

No.3: Fresh Foods in Bali

For those staying in villas with a self-contained kitchen, you can buy:

  • fresh meat
  • seafood
  • fruit and vegetables
  • a huge range of cheeses
  • dips, and
  • delicatessen items at Bintang Seminyak.

Everything you need for a cheese platter and wine by the pool, mid afternoon.

No.4: Balinese herbs and spices

There’s an aisle full of popular Bali spices, and traditional Indonesian food packaged in sealed boxes so you can relive your Bali food experiences and play Masterchef at home. 

Plus there’s all your favourite:

  • cereals
  • biscuits
  • crackers
  • packaged cakes
  • sauces, and more too.

No.5: Where to buy drinks in Bali?

Stock up on bottled water, drinks & Bintang beer at Bintang. 

Bintang in Seminyak is also the shop to buy bottled water in bulk. 

Cheap water, cold soft drinks, Bintang beer, and iced tea purchases at Bintang supermarket will save you the pain of a huge minibar bill when you check out of your Bali hotel. 

If you think that the prices in the Mini marts are reasonable (cold drinks for $1.50AUD is unheard of at home), then this Bali supermarket goes one step further to stretch the budget. 

You can also buy extra milk for your tea and for baby bottles, and yoghurt for snacking too.

Cheap shopping in Bali at the Bintang Supermarket

Want a general idea of Bintang supermarket prices and what you can expect before you catch a taxi there?

Unfortunately, Bintang Supermarket does not have an online junk mail brochure to browse, (unlike the other major supermarket on Sunset Road, Carrefour)

But you can pick up a brochure when you enter the door, or check out the posters and noticeboards by the door on arrival for current specials.

A trip to Bintang supermarket is worth your while if you are staying in Seminyak or Canggu, especially if you visit at the beginning of your stay and stock up.

Those in Kuta and Legian will still save, even if it costs you $5 in a taxi fare to get there. 

Stocking up on drinks and snacks from Bintang will save you dipping into your wallet every five minutes when you pass a mini-mart.

It’s a bargain hunters treasure box, a haven of cheap shopping in Bali. 

Upstairs at Bintang Supermarket 2nd floor

Don’t forget to head up to the second floor for:

  • sunglasses
  • bags and backpacks
  • suitcases
  • stationery
  • household goods
  • kitchenware
  • authentic mortar and pestles
  • birthday party goods
  • thongs
  • sarongs
  • ornaments, and
  • general paraphernalia.
