Mal Bali Galeria is a large shopping complex conveniently located at the Simpang Dewaruci landmark and roundabout in Kuta. The expansive shopping and entertainment precinct boasts a ‘family mall’ concept, carrying a slogan of ‘enjoy, play, eat, shop’. Various tenants, outlets and event highlights make it a favourite destination among locals and visitors.
Besides shopping and dining, Mal Bali Galeria is also a popular leisure venue where different ‘happenings’ regularly occur on its calendar of events. These mostly take place in its large atrium referred to as the ‘dome’ with a large central fountain. Adding to the convenience factor is a three-storey car park, as well as a dedicated open parking space for motorcycles in its eastern ground level.

The Mal Bali Galeria site comprises three main physical divisions. The DFS and Planet Hollywood is at the front, while a second building houses the Galeria 21 Cineplex, the island’s premier cinema complex which screens the latest international blockbuster titles in its two screens. And the third and main building, located further east into the grounds, is where the proper ‘mall’ features can be found.
