    Praia Beachwear: Bali Online Bikini Shop - Delivery to your Hotel!

    by Diane_Ash Written Jun 7, 2012

    I found this online bikini shop while i was looking for some nice bikinis to buy in Bali. I've been looking around to buy bikinis in Bali for a while, but since I'm quite picky when it comes to quality and design, I haven't really found many brands in Bali that offer good quality.

    Praia Beachwear is an online company that is currently only selling one brand, which is called Cia.Marítima, a high-end Brazilian beachwear brand, that I happen to know after a friend brought me one of these bikinis from Brazil (yes all my friends know i'm such a bikini addict). And since then I just fell in love with these brazilian bikinis!

    The wonderful thing about this online bikini shop is that they bring the bikinis to you, as long as it's an adress in Bali.

    I'm always a bit hesitant to order clothes online, but I didn't hesitate to order from them since they just send a salesgirl to your place, where you can try the bikinis you selected on the website, before you buy them.

    If you want, you can buy them, but there is no obligation to buy.

    The bikinis are a bit on the pricy side (between 120 - 200 USD), but you get what you pay for: an international designer brand, the best quality fabrics, really nice designs and they fit amazingly comfortable.

    I'm definitely going to order from them again!

    What to buy: Bikinis, bikinis, bikinis.

    They are selling Brazilian bikinis, but not all of them have the (in)famous brazilian cut.

    Most of the bikinis they have, have the normal cut bottoms and even the ones that have the more daring Brazilian cut bottom still look stylish and elegant in my opinion.

    They are currently selling their bikinis also in two shops in the Seminyak/Oberoi area.

    I ordered mine by calling them and a few hours later a smiling Indonesian girl was at my hotel room with the bikinis i selected. She patiently waited while i was trying them on and gave me some tips on which bikinis suited my style.

    I bought two and I just love them!

    What to pay: 120 USD - 200 USD

    I USED TO LIVE IN INDONESIA BUT I FOUND MY SISTER A BETTER PRO AT BARGAINING, FOLLOWS ARE GENERAL TIPS TO HEAD TOWARDS A GOOD BARGAIN( WHICH I WAS INSPIRED BY OBSERVING HER CAREFULLY !!) :

    1.SEARCH FOR FRIENDLY SALES PERSONS ( TO INCREASE OUR CHANCES !)
    2.SMILE ( IMPORTANT !)
    3.BE RELAXED ( OR ATLEAST ATTEMPT TO BE RELAXED !)
    4.CHOOSE A FEW ITEMS ( TO APPEAR LIKE A BULK PURCHASER ! MORE THAN ONE ITEM WILL GENERALLY QUALIFY FOR SOME DISCOUNT)
    5.ENTER NEGOTATION AND DECIDED WHAT YOU WANT TO PAY .
    6.EXPECT THE FIRST COUNTER OFFER TO BE HIGH AND APPEAR NEUTRAL.
    7.BE FRIENDLY AND COUNTER WITH AN SIGHTLY LOWER OFFER THAN YOUR TARGET.
    8.AT THIS POINT , WE CAN DECIDE TO EITHER PERSIST OR GO ALONG WITH A SLIGHTLY HIGHER PRICE.

    Krisna: No Bargain Required

    by sandrafiza Updated Aug 17, 2009

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are a person who usually fail in bargaining or just do not want to waste you saliva, this is the perfect place to shop. This warehouse offer the same product that stall or shop in ubud, sukawati and etc sell. The only difference is you don't have to bargain and don't have to worry if you get cheat.

    The guide informed us that in Denpasar and Kuta there is a few other places offer the same bargain, he took us to this warehouse because the place are more organized and the product are in good condition.

    I have this interesting experience that I would like to share and the reason that I think visitor should visit this shop first before proceed to buy at other shop or area. A friend of mine as me to buy a slipper that she bought a few years back in bali. She said the price is a round 28,000 rupiah. So when i was at Ubud I saw the slipper and the man sell it at 60,000 rupiah, I ask for 20,000 rupiah he said cannot and offer me at 35,000 rupiah. Since it is above the budget, i decide not to buy. Then the next day we went to this warehouse and guess how much the price is. The same slipper was sell at 14,000 rupiah only....

    Ibu Suzy or Aunty Suzy sell local product such as necklace, bangles, flower hair clip and etc. I'm not good at bargain so when I buy some hair clip at Tanah Lot the lady charge me 10,000 rupiahs each but Aunty Suzy charge us only 5,000 rupiahs.
    She such a nice lady that we spend a long hours at her place and the other seller start to come to her place and ask her something. I ask her what did they said-she said "oh nothing they were just saying that we buy a lot from her".

    Shopping center bali collection: Bali Collection Nusa Dua

    by Chellenz Written Sep 26, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    this is a shopping mall with a good aray of shops and a little market section where we found a few bargains. Actually a really quiet shopping center alot of the time you only pass a few other people shopping which can be a nice change for bali and the sales people are happy to let you wander around...its alomost like a little escape back to the norm of n.z and au shopping!!

    There is a few good bag shops(my sister had hers checked at the genuine shop in au when she got back and they said it was the real thing...she paid $450au (alot to spend in bali) but its worth $3000 so a good deal!!), clothing shops and eateries....baskin robbins was good in the heat of the day too!!

    What to buy: pretty much anything you need a good little supermarket shop in here too!!

    What to pay: Probably a little more expensive than other options in bali but still reasonable!!

    Matahari: Easy shopping in bali Matahari

    by Chellenz Written Sep 26, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    has a bit of everything is great to shop for perfume, makeup,toys, clothing but my favorite thing to buy here is SHOES!!! There is a few Mataharis on the island they are large stores with lots of choice all at fixed price!!
    When you have enough of bargaining this is a good place to head as they have fixed prices on everything including bali t-shirts,keyrings, towels pretty much anything like that you would want!

    The way the shop works is interesting usually they will take the products from you while you are shopping and they write them up on a invoice give this to you and you collect the goods from the cashier desk...only catch there is lots of cashiers check which one you should be going too to pick up your goods!! You may end up getting goods from three different cashiers if you get stopped in different areas of the store!!

    What to pay: all fixed prices!! Reasonable pricing!!

    Installing Alang Alang Roofing

    by balisunshine Written Jun 17, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you have never been to Bali,
    you may become quite enchanted
    by the beauty that the traditional
    alang alang roof adds to many of its structures.

    Alang alang thatching has been used
    in Indonesia for hundreds of years
    on the islands of Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa,
    Timor and Sumba as a
    traditional system of roofing.

    The alang alang roof is
    a good insulation against heat
    and is very attractive to look at,
    both inside and out.

    It is durable, with reports of it lasting to twenty years,
    although by this time it would be very thin and unattractive.
    More commonly it has a life span of seven or eight years.

    Nil: Bargining power

    by THLIN Written Feb 21, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Please please please, when you are shopping in this lovely island, DO BARGIN. DO NOT be shy, starting from one-tenth of the price and adding up gradually. Do not cut the price into half, because you lose your bargining power once you make your price too high.
    Do remeber one thing - BARGIN.

    What to buy: Everything from local wood carving, painting, to t-shirt with BALI on top of it.

    What to pay: Strongly recommend that you pay Rupiah. US Dollars, Euro and Japanese Yen are widely acceptable but the rates may not be so good. So prepare for enough rupiah once you want to do some real shopping.

    Sukawati Art Market: Shopping Spree in Sukawati

    by voodo0 Written Aug 14, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sukawati Art Market is one of art markets that are already popular among visitors. Sukawati road-facing market located in the Gianyar Regency has a strategic position as it is passed through during the tour to some destinations to the east. Sukawati art market is close to the village of Celuk, the center of gold & silversmiths.

    Buying giveaways to commemorate the holiday has to be a must. So take advantage the holiday time to find out something memorable here. This market is very unique as it is already open in the early morning and visited by both domestic and foreign visitors.

    What to buy: It is just like a myriad of art shops that offers wide range of products. Simply one stop-shopping. Many items sold in Kuta or other areas originate from here and are considerably cheaper if bought here. One outlet may provide more than one item, like garments, souvenirs, paintings (framed and unframed), basketry, colorful kites and so on.

    What to pay: You will get a new experience in the 'art of buying'. You must bargain the price eventhough the vendor offers you a "morning price." Meaning especially low, to start off the trading daywith a few sales already and make the day a successful one.

    It does not mean you have to accept it as it is, it's not a fixed price. If you are good at bargaining you will get the best price you can afford and the vendor keeps "smiling and thanking you". If they don't smile anymore, you know his cost is higher than your offer. Good at bargaining is a bit more than insisting on a price. You need to provide a logical reason why your offer is so low and still should be accepted.
