The Ultimate Bali Honeymoon Guide [ Updated 2023 ]

Okay friends –  a ton of you have slid into my DM’s on instagram asking for honeymoon recommendations for Bali lately, so I figured it’s about time we write a post all about honeymooning in Bali on the blog!

If you’re still deciding where to honeymoon , I’m here to tell you to stop your search right here. When it comes to luxurious honeymoon destinations , Bali is quickly topping most of our short lists, and it’s easy to see why! It is BEAUTIFUL, exotic, relaxing, fun, and adventurous all at once — everything you could possibly want in a honeymoon. Did I mention it’s affordable? You can live like kings and queens for a week in Bali for a fraction of the price you’d spend in Europe or Bora Bora . Major win.

A honeymoon in Bali is a choose-your-own-adventure kind of trip, meaning there is something for every type of honeymooner. You can have the relaxing, beachfront vacation of your dreams in Uluwatu …. or you can wake up in a private villa or suite high above the jungle in zen Ubud . Or maybe you’re looking to blow of some wedding-stress steam in world-renowned party spots like the Gili Islands , Seminyak, and Canggu . Or maybe you guys want to get adventurous and dive with manta rays in Nusa Lembongan and hike the gorgeous coast of Nusa Penida. You can spend choose to spend your days sightseeing, adventuring, and soaking in the rich Bali culture, or you can simply lay back at a five-star Balinese resort and call it a (fantastic) day.

But – with so much to do and so many places to choose from comes a lot of questions – which is where I come in.

Let’s play a little jetset honeymoon q&a…, q: christina – i’ve heard bali is incredible but there are so many different areas and it’s such a big island what area of bali is best for a honeymoon.

A: They’re all amazing in their own ways, so I would recommend traveling to at least 2 different areas of Bali during your trip here to get the ultimate Bali experience.

My personal favorite area of Bali is the epically stunning coast of Uluwatu , about 40 minutes from the airport. The aqua-blue waters and the relaxed, off-the-map vibe is just I would want in a honeymoon. Your days will be filled with rolling waves, cold tropical drinks, and epic sunsets that light the sky on fire.

About an hour away from the airport, Ubud is just what you think of when you think of Bali – lush jungle, beautiful waterfalls, and a zen calm unlike anywhere else in the world.  Ubud in my opinion is a must on any trip to Bali , and a perfect honeymoon location. Make sure to make a romantic dinner reservation at KUBU in a cocoon! Or at any of my other favorite Ubud restaurants .

Seminyak & Canggu

About 20 to 30 minutes from the airport lies the heart of Bali’s tourism and ex-pat community – Seminyak & Canggu .  Seminyak is busy and bustling, and hosts some of the best dining and nightlife on the island. Canggu (where I’m based) is a little further up the coast and has more of a hip-surfer vibe. Canggu is the land of  chic sunset bars , instagram models, and avocado toast.

Nusa Lembongan

Just a short less-than-an-hour boat ride away from Bali, Nusa Lembongan is a perfect honeymoon destination. Nusa Lembongan is just one of the three Nusa islands (Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Cenigan), but it’s the one with the most going on and best places to stay (Nusa Penida is gorgeous and well-worth a day trip – you can read more about that here – but there just aren’t many places to stay (and it’s a lot tougher to get around, etc). Nusa Lembongan is around 8km square in size and is easily the most popular of the three islands.  From Nusa Lembongan, you can dive or snorkel with manta rays (it’s known as one of the world’s best dive sites), do yoga, rent a bike, or just sit back and enjoy some cocktails and sunsets on the beach. For the best food on the island, check out The Deck, Lembongan Reef Bar, and Blue Corner Dive.

Nusa Dua is a hotbed of luxury resorts in Southern Bali. The area is known for its white-sand beaches, sprawling golf courses, and beautiful resorts, and it’s often where people end up staying when they come to Bali. It’s full of gorgeous hotels and a great place to be based for a few relaxing resort days but I personally wouldn’t spend my whole trip here, since it’s a bit touristy and not as traditional Bali – plus it’s removed from the other areas of Bali.

The Gili Islands

Floating off of the coast of Indonesia are three little islands with white-sand beaches, crystal-clear turquoise water, swaying palms, horse-drawn carraiges (yep, there are no cars or motorbikes on these islands!), and un-bali-evable sunsets. You can have a romantic, idyllic atmosphere on remote Gili Air , or take on the lively party scene on Gili T. The Gilis are your perfect blend of beaches, buzzes and bliss. They’re not easy to get to (a 2+ hour drive and then an hour boat ride), but, they’re worth it.


Q: where should we stay in bali for a honeymoon.

A: If you’re anything like me, a great villa or hotel means everything on a vacation – and especially on your honeymoon!  Luckily, thanks to a huge surge in tourism in the last decade, the island of Bali is blessed with some of the most incredible accommodation options in the world – at every budget. Here are some of my favorites:

Four Seasons Resort Sayan in Ubud

It’s hard to beat the Four Seasons ‘ sixty-room stunning setting – a complete sanctuary cocooned in Ubud ‘s Ayung valley. In fact, it was just ranked the #1 hotel IN THE WORLD by Travel & Leisure. Each villa is adorned in dark teak and Indonesian stone and many of the villas boast a private pool and outdoor living rooms. In the restaurant, you can dine on contemporary Indonesian cuisine on a picture-perfect terrace, or sip a passion fruit martini overlooking the valley at Jati Bar. Staying here is once-in-a-lifetime – perfect for a Bali honeymoon . I definitely recommend splurging for a pool villa – the views are unmatched in all of Ubud, and you’ll have your own private infinity pool like this one!

Viceroy Bali in Ubud

The Viceroy is a jungle retreat perfect for a honeymoon. Each of its luxury villas is a sanctuary that you’ll never want to leave – did I mention they all have a private infinity pool that can turn into a hot tub whenever you want it to? (HOW AMAZING IS THAT). The service is absolutely amazing and its restaurant – Cascades – is one of my favorites in all of Bali (Leave your wedding diet in America, you’re gonna want to order the coconut milk banana french toast for breakfast every morning)!

Bulgari Resort Bali

Private beach, sun loungers, beach umbrellas, beach towels

This ultra-luxury resort in Uluwatu is absolutely stunning, and worth the price, especially for a Bali honeymoon ! A roundtrip airport shuttle, a poolside bar, and a seaside terrace. Add in a private (breathtakingly beautiful !) beach, beachfront dining, and lots of places to relax in the sun, this hotel is the perfect romantic getaway in Bali. Treat yourself to a massage, a body treatment, or a facial at The Spa, the onsite spa. Be sure to enjoy a meal at any of the 3 onsite restaurants, which feature international cuisine and ocean views. Yoga classes are offered at the 24-hour health club; the property also has designer stores on site, a garden, and a hair salon. 

Check rates here.

Kayon Jungle Resort in Ubud

For a jungle pool villa that is SO quintessential Bali, at a less expensive price point than Viceroy or Four Seasons, Kayon Jungle Resort is a great pick for a honeymoon.

Alila Villas Uluwatu

The eco-modern villas at Alila are vast and super-stylish. Each comes with a butler, swimming pool and a chic poolside cabana. You can get to a private beach but you’ll have to descend over 600 stairs to reach it – and then climb back up again – so most guests choose to hang by the beautiful 50-meter pool instead, or retreat to the yoga center and the gorgeous spa.

Six Senses Uluwatu

The Six Senses is the newest luxury resort in Uluwatu – and it is easily one of the most stunning. Located on its own clifftop that feels like your own end-of-the-world oasis, this is the ultimate Bali Honeymoon luxury resort. It’s also where I got engaged!! ( which you can read more about here 🙂

Karma Kandara in Uluwatu

Perched on a cliff 300 feet above the Indian Ocean, Karma Kandara is an amazing choice for a honeymoon. Think villas hidden among tropical gardens, a serene spa, gourmet restaurants and an awesome beach club (that you have to take a cable car to get down to). The stunning Karma Kandara has perfected the art of Bali beachfront relaxation.

Ayana Resort in Uluwatu

If magical sunsets and incredible oceanfront views are what you’re after, the Ayana is your paradise. It is one of Bali’s most acclaimed and awarded hotels, and deserves every honor. There are 19 restaurants and bars including the famous Rock Bar; an exclusive private beach; 12 swimming pools; a world-class spa and fitness center.

353 Degrees North , Nusa Lembongan

With views of the ocean and the volcano, 353 Degrees North is a stunning clifftop villa in Nusa Lembongan, and is one of my very favorite places I’ve stayed in Bali. It is secluded, quiet, tucked away, and a wonderful choice for a honeymoon. You can read more about my experience there in this blog post on Nusa Lembongan.

COMO Uma Canggu

This gorgeous surf-town haven in Canggu is a great hotel option for a couple days exploring low-key surfer town Canggu The contemporary white-and-grey decor and modern vibe is hard to find in a traditionally more casual hipster-paradise Canggu, I wouldn’t call it ULTRA-luxury like the Ubud and Uluwatu hotels, but that’s not what Canggu is about! That being said, COMO does modern-meets-Canggu vibes right. From their Beach Club (full of seafood feasts and fresh-fruit-packed frozen cocktails),to their beautiful lagoon pool, to the spacious rooms, to their panoramic views of the beach and rolling waves, this is the spot I stay in Canggu the most.

The Beach Shack in Nusa Lembongan

This beautiful beach-chic beach-front villa is a gorgeous choice for a honeymoon.

Bambu Indah in Ubud

As called out as one of the best eco-friendly places to stay in Bali by the Wall Street Journal recently, Bambu Indah is a quiet eco-lifestyle hotel tucked in Ubud defines eco-chic. Bambu Indah is the perfect choice for the yogi couple who’s looking for their zen in the jungle for a couple nights. It’s lush & green and its uniquely Ubud-calm defines serenity. Even if you don’t stay here, the restaurant is worth a brunch or lunch to check out the gorgeous hotel.

Cicada Luxury Villas in Seminyak

These luxury townhouse villas are a great budget-friendly option for a few nights of your honeymoon! They are in a perfect location to start or end your trip in bustling Seminyak (walking distance to lots of shopping, eating, beaching and drinking!), the rooms are HUGE and really nice, and feature an outdoor shower and bath, and access to a gorgeous pool.

Colony Hotel in Seminyak

The Colony Hotel is insta-famous for it’s picture-perfect colonial-style courtyard pool in the heart of Seminyak. It may not be beachfront or suspended in the jungle, but it does make for a perfect home base in the Seminyak/Canggu area – where much of the nightlife, shopping, and ex-pat scenes are in Bali.

Q: If we don’t want to just sit around at a resort all day, what should we do when we get there?

A: there is so much to do once you’ve nailed down the areas you’ll be staying in – revert to my ultimate bali travel guide for details on where to eat, drink, sightsee and play when you get there.  for a couple quick favorites – my favorite spots for a sunset drink are la brisa beach club in canggu , la laguna, the lawn canggu and potato head in seminyak. my favorite beaches are bingin beach and thomas beach .  and my favorite day trips are to the waterfalls & rice fields , q: my wedding is in the middle of summer is it going to be brutally hot in bali what time of year is best for a bali honeymoon, a: usa summer is bali’s dryest (and most popular) season. rainy season runs november-february and it can get very, very rainy. that being said, many people visit during this time and get plenty of sunshine during their trip – you just need to be prepared for some rainy afternoons the best months in my opinion are march through june and september/october. , q: we want to do our honeymoon in bali, but we don’t want to break the bank. is it really as affordable as they say, a: bali can be as affordable – or as luxurious- as you want it to be. to me, it’s all about being smart about where you spend your money. while there are 5-star resorts like the four seasons and the hanging gardens that aren’t exactly affordable, you can stay at luxury spots and then choose to eat at affordable spots in town (as opposed to at the resort), get cheap massages nearby instead of at the resort spa (i have some awesome recs on the ultimate bali travel guide ), etc. etc. even though some of the nicer places to stay are comparable in price to other honeymoon destinations around the world, it’s the savings in food, activities and transportation in bali that make it the affordable destination it is. , q: how much does a bali honeymoon cost, a: the great thing about bali is it’s great at any budget. y ou can expect to spend anywhere within the range of $4000- $10,000+ in bali, though it’s hard to spend more than that in bali. your biggest expense will definitely be the hotels (so don’t be afraid to splurge there)., as far as food goes, breakfast is usually included in your hotel stay, and the rest of bali food is extremely affordable. if you eat at a mix of nice and casual restaurants, you’re likely looking at an average of ~ $100-$150 total per day (for both of you). if you eat at only affordable spots, you could bring that down to as little as $50 a day., transportation in bali is extremely affordable. if you were to have a private driver for every day of your trip, to take you wherever you want, you are looking at around $75-$100 a day. if you rent a motorbike and drive yourself around, it’s about $5 a day. , activities in bali like visiting waterfalls and rice fields, or taking a day trip to the volcano, are not pricey at all. i’d say to budget around $50 extra dollars a day for activities, although keep in mind most of this goes hand in hand with transportation as well (your driver for the day can take you to the waterfalls and rice fields , the market and temples, etc), q: ok christina – everything in bali sounds incredible. what would be your ideal 9-day honeymoon itinerary, a: that’s such a tough one. i personally would do a combination of uluwatu and ubud. that way, you get the gorgeous beaches and combine it with the beautiful bali jungle and all there is to see in ubud (stunning waterfalls, monkey forest, the rice fields) if i had more flexibility on time and 2 weeks, i would do uluwatu, ubud, and either nusa lembongan or the gili islands (both are boat rides away, but so unique and beautiful)., q: what else should we know about bali, make sure to read up on my biggest mistakes to avoid on your first trip to bali blog post here bring cash, as many places in bali don’t accept credit card, and you’ll need cash for transportation, cafes, etc. always barter, with ever driver everywhere, they’ll always say a higher price than is fair. it should cost about $6-700k rupiah max to have a private driver for an entire day of touring around/ into the evening. please don’t overpay for transportation rates, as it makes the entire economy change here in bali. many people feel like “oh that’s too cheap, i should pay more” but that completely disrupts the balinese economy., transportation is very cheap here, and drivers currently make more of a salary than doctors, so just remember how far your money goes for locals in bali they make more in a day driving tourists than they would make in over a month in any other industry on the island. , q: should i get travel insurance for bali, i’m always a fan of getting travel insurance for any big trip travel insurance  from worldnomads.com is available to people from over  140 countries  and is designed for  travelers  with cover for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and a range of adventure sports and activities., what should i pack for bali.

I have a whole Bali packing list here but here are some cute looks for a honeymoon in Bali!

bali honeymoon trip plan

This beach shirt is what I ALWAYS wear on every vacation. Over my bikini, on planes, open, buttoned up, tied around my waist or tied in the front (my favorite way to wear it!). The material is SO SOFT and the perfect layer of warmth thats not too warm, but just warm enough, making it ideal for travel days and beach days.

Hey, this is an amazing article. Loved your style of writing.

Hi Christina-

Really enjoyed reading through your Ultimate Bali Guide and Honeymoon Post.

My fiance and I are planning to be in Bali for the first 2 weeks in January. We didnt realize that this was the rainy season until reading your blog (rookie mistake I know). Any suggestions on how to make the most of the trip during this time of year? Anything you’d change in terms of your approach to the trip?

Appreciate your insight!

Christina Vidal

HI Alex! No worries – hopefully you will get some sunshine!!! In my experience the mornings during rainy season are sometimes beautiful and then the rain starts up in the afternoon – my advice would be to take advantage of those mornings!! and to allow extra time to get places as the rain can make it tougher to get around. Also definitely plan for some time in Ubud! Ubud is BEAUTIFUL in the rain – the jungle zen just gets even better!

' src=

Honeymoon is a very beautiful moment for couples and there are so many honeymoon destinations in Bali to choose from! Thank you for the best Honeymoon in Bali Guide that you have given us all this is written very well, thanks

Thank you Adam!

Hi, could you please map out a 9 day itinerary with your recommendations ?

Hi Nancy! That’s the last Q I answer above in the post! 🙂 Happy travels to Bali!

Hello and thanks for the excellent article! We will visit for ~10 nights mid-end June 2020 for our honeymoon. We’re thinking Seminayak 4 nights, then Ubud 2 nights, then candi dusa 4 nights. Does this sound like a good plan to you? or do you have a better idea? We haven’t booked flight/acommodations yet and are struggling with how many ~$160/nt resorts/Airbnb’s there are!!! Any advice on how to narrow down the options? We’d love beachfront, but very close is ok too. were also adventurous travelers, so not too touristy would be great! Thanks again for the really helpful article!

Hi! We are doing a two night Liveaboard in Komodo and then flying back to Bali. Definitely want to stay in Ubud for a few nights and then trying to pick between Uliwatu, Seminyak, and another area. Since we’ll be spending 3 days on a boat (and swimming/diving a lot) do you have suggestions for what other area we should visit?

Hi Elisa! That is so much fun! I would recommend checking out Canggu! It’s a totally different feel from Komodo and Ubud. Uluwatu is always my favorite as well, but since you’re already doing so much diving/beach time, I’d say maybe Seminyak or Canggu! Canggu is a really cool surfer town with great cafes, restaurants, bars and it’s where most of the expats in Bali live 🙂

Hi Christina, I had a query, I am planning to go to Bali in the first 2 weeks of March 2019. Your blog says that March is one of the best times to go, but a lot of other blogs and websites mention that it’s quite rainy in March too. So I’m a bit hesitant to finalize Bali due to the rains, please guide me 😁

Hi Nikhil! I’ve had wonderful experiences in March and am here almost every March. It’s a tropical island – so there is rain year round! but it comes and goes, the true “rainy season” ends in February usually! I hope you have a wonderful trip! Fingers crossed for all days of sunshine!!!

' src=

Hi Christina, I’m going with my wife for our honeymoon for 6 nights in the last week of Feb and debating our itinerary. Mixture of Uluwatu and Ubud seems right but if it rains would you favor one area more than another? Also, how would you sequence those two destinations?

Hi Ramit! You should be good on weather in late February, it’s usually the end of rainy season by then! That is a great combination. You can’t go wrong starting with one or the other – but Ubud will be the MOST relaxing, so if your honeymoon is directly after your wedding, I might start there 🙂

' src=

Hi Christina,

Great advice in this article! I am planning a 2 week honeymoon for April/May. I love the idea of hitting your top 3 locations but am trying to figure out if Gili Islands or Nusa lembongan makes more sense in addition to Ulluwatu and Ubud. I am hoping to squeeze in some island time with beautiful sandy white beaches. Which would you recommend for this timeframe and how would you organize the itinerary in terms of order to visit these places? Seems Gili Islands are unreal but tough to get to in a short timeframe.

Hi Sherri! That is a question I get a ton! It’s so hard to decide between the Nusas and the Gilis – you can ‘t go wrong with either – they are both so beautiful! However, I think it comes down to how much time you want to spend on your honeymoon traveling – getting to the Gilis is a little farther than the Nusas (about 3-4 hours total travel time compared to 1.5-2). That being said, 2 weeks is definitely enough time (most people squeeze in three Bali destinations into 9 days or so), so if you want to get to the Gilis – you definitely have time to! The Gilis are a little more fun and islandey, with Gili T being the “party island”, whereas the Nusas are more chill and relaxed.

Sherri Bohman

Thanks so much! We are now thinking of postponing until the end of October/early November. It seems like this is not quite as ideal as going in April/May. Would you be concerned about weather during that time? Will the water be rough as well as more rain?

I actually love October/early November in Bali! It is before rainy season – but just a note it is HOT and humid!!! And no I haven’t experienced too rough of waters in Bali 🙂

Hi Christina, love this post!

We’re planning on going on our Honeymoon to Bali for 3 weeks in March 2020. How many places do you think we can visit and how long should we spend roughly in each area?

Also do you arrange transport once you’re over there? Sorry for all the questions!

Hi Elle! How exciting! You are going to love it! You can get to A LOT of places in 3 weeks – so it just depends on how long you want in each! If it were me, I would do a combination of Ubud (make sure you plan for a lot of time here, I always want more days!), Uluwatu, Canggu/Seminyak, the Gili Islands and the Nusa islands. I don’t normally recommend people to do BOTH islands, but since you have so much time I’d probably want to see it all! But, if you want more time to relax, choose between the Gilis and the Nusas (I’m working on a blog post comparing the Gili Islands to the Nusa Islands as we speak – so stay tuned!) For transport, I arrange once I’m on the ground. For an all-day tour (taking you around, from one region to another, or just touring around during the day etc etc), it shouldn’t be more than 50 USD. Airport transport you can get on the ground fairly easily but make sure you haggle! It should be about 300,000 rupiah from the airport to Ubud, or similar to other areas. Just play the “this isn’t our first time, that’s way too much” card!

Hi Christina. Thanks for the wonderful article. I have a query. We are planning for honeymoon in the third week of February. we are thinking about 6 night stay. I have planned of 3 nights in Ubud. I could not decide on Jimbaran or Uluwatu for the other 3 nights? I have checked out Rimba Jimbaran by Ayana. Is it better to take the breakfast package or just the room ? I have no idea regarding the restaurants around Uluwatu or Jimbaran area which provide nice pan cakes and Omlettes for brekafast. Can you please guide me over here.

Hi Rakesh! I’m so excited for you guys – you will love Bali 🙂 Rimba Jimbaran and Ayana are both LOVELY resorts, so if you’re looking to stay at the resort (which I’d be inclined to do on a honeymoon!), I’d go with them over Uluwatu, however, if you’re looking to more explore more beaches, beach clubs, etc outside of your resort, there is more going on in the Uluwatu area for that. I’d definitely do the breakfast package at Ayana – the buffet is GREAT and fills you up for the day! I also loooved the restaurant the Rimba (which I believe you can golf cart over to even if you’re staying at the main Ayana). Since omelettes/pancakes/breakfast in general is less of an Indonesian thing, and more of a western tradition, I like to do breakfast packages while in Bali.

Hi Christina! Thank you for this wonderful article. I wanted to know if there was a specific site you recommend for booking a stay at the Rimba? Also, does the Rimba by Ayana resort offer any excursions/day tours for Ubud? Thanks again!

Hi Devonte – Please use this link here to book the Rimba! https://www.booking.com/hotel/id/rimba-jimbaran-bali-jimbaran.en.html?aid=1590369&no_rooms=1&group_adults=1 it’s such a wonderful hotel -you’re going to love it! As far as offering day tours and excursions, I’m pretty positive they do – just contact the hotel once you are booked and they can help set you up with some – I also find sometimes just doing so on the ground once I’m there is easiest!

Hi! I have thought about honeymooning in Bali for some time now. We are considering staying in an air b&b in Ubud. Would you recommend that? How do you know if the air b&b will look the same when you get there as it does in the pictures online?

Hi Sarah! Airbnb’s in Bali tend to be wonderful options! I’d just look at the reviews and make sure they’re great before booking.

Hi! My fiance and I will be traveling to Bali for our honeymoon. We’re thinking about spending maybe 2-3 weeks there. How much money (USD) do you recommend bringing for that length of time, assuming we’ll be staying in some mid-range accommodations, doing water activities, and wanting to enjoy everything Bali has to offer?

Hi Christine! Many places take card, but transport, street shopping, etc are all cash only, so it depends how much you want on hand! I usually say about aboout 500-700 dollars per week in cash is fine for all your activities. More if you think you’ll want to shop more!

Hey Christina, I’m planning a honeymoon in Bali this July 2019 and have two questions! 1.) Will the weather be good at this time? 2.) Should we be concerned about earthquakes/tsunamis?!

Hi Amanda! July is such a beautiful time of year in Bali!!!! You are going to love it. Do not be concerned about earthquakes/tsunamis!! Like anywhere in the world, of course these things can happen, but the fear of natural disasters shouldn’t stop you from traveling and living your life to the fullest. The earthquakes last year in Bali were widely spread by the media as much worse than they were – our neighboring island Lombok was hit much worse, but there was no damage in Bali at all.

Hi Christina!

Would you recommend The Legian or Four Seasons @Jimbaran Bay?

Hey Christina! 26 May-2June 2019 (Dates for Bali) I’m sorry, but I would like to add to my question above. What about the Ayana Resort? I’m currently looking at all 3. I want to stay two nights in one of them to end our honeymoon. So far I have an Airbnb for one night in Ubud, then hoping to get another Airbnb booked for two nights (awaiting approval) which is about 90 minutes north-ish from ubud, then just a Air bnb villa at Ubud for two nights, then to end our trip I want to explore Seminyak and Ulluwatu.

What do you think?

Look forward to hearing back!

Thank you 🙂

Hi Tiffany! It depends if you want to be at the resort mostly, or around more things/in town. Legian is in the center of Seminyak so walkable to lots of shops, restaurants, etc. Ayana is incredible but off in its own world! But I LOVE their beach, restaurants, pools, etc so you don’t ever want to leave! Totally depends on what you’re looking for 🙂

Hi Christina! Love your taste and all your photos! My fiance and I have had the chance to stay in some very gorgeous hotel rooms around the world and therefore are getting extra picky with choosing a honeymoon hotel in Bali for late August 2019: I am confused by photos I’ve seen of various resorts because some rooms look a bit cold and not very decorated, I am looking for something very stylistic and stunning to go gaga over and take lots of photos – for example, we loved all of the colorful details and views of Malliouhana’s rooms, bed, and terrace views.

1. We are looking to stay in a hotel/room that will be out of this world jaw-droppingly unique and beautiful, with a private pool, hot tub, with the best views that is worth the 24hr+ flight 🙂

2. That has unique amenities or does extra special things for honeymooners

3. Also am nervous about bugs – will there be a lot in the last week of Aug? Therefore might prefer a hotel that has closed doors from terrace and indoor bathroom.

You gave great options, but with our desires in mind, what are the 2 top hotels you would recommend for Ubud, Seminyak, and Uluwatu?

Thanks!! Selina

3. Also, am nervous about bugs – will there be a lot in the last week of Aug? Therefore might prefer a hotel that has closed doors from the terrace and indoor bathroom.

Hi Christina! I saw your “Ultimate Bali Honeymoon Guide” today and I was very intrigued. My fiance and I are planning a honeymoon in early March 2020. Bali seems perfect for us! We haven’t travelled outside of the US, but we would really like to. We love adventures and aren’t really the type of couple to sit around and relax (too much). We were hoping to get some input and advice into planning a honeymoon to Bali. There were a lot of things in your honeymoon guide that seem like a lot of fun, but it is definitely a lot to navigate. The villas in the jungle seemed AMAZING! And I absolutely love the idea of an infinity pool. There were also a couple of other places you mentioned to stay that seemed right up our ally. I wasn’t sure if we should plan to stay in once place the whole time or if we should book a couple of different places to stay. We wouldn’t mind relaxing on the beach a couple of days, but we would definitely like to tour around and do as much as we can while we are there. The whole trip will probably be about 7-9 days.  Thanks so much!

Hi Samantha! That’s so exciting!! I do offer custom Bali honeymoon itineraries and planning for this exact reason – to help navigate all of the info on the blog and help you make the best decisions for your trip for YOU! Reach out to me via email [email protected] for my rates! XX

Firstly thank you for your blog. I’m planning to have my honeymoon in Bali for 7 days in July and had a few questions.

What are the best things to do or see during our stay? The plan is to do some sightseeing, activities and relax. Initially, we were going to stay in one place (Disini Luxury Spa Villas in Seminyak). But after reading your blog i wanted to know whether you would recommend splitting our stay into two different area’s?

Looking forward to your response.

Hi Muna! How exciting! it depends on how much you want to be moving around during your stay in Bali, it’s totally fine to stick to one area, but I personally love to go to at least two – I would say definitely see Ubud!!! For more ideas, check out my other guides like the Ubud guide and the ultimate Bali guide!

Hi Christina, I’m organizing my son’s honeymoon in June to Bali. I’ve researched the different places and I’m so glad I found your site! My biggest issue is flying to Bali from California. I didn’t realize the flight was so long and that there are no non-stop flights. Have you ever had any questions related to flights and layovers? I’ve seen layovers in Singapore but not sure I want to have them stay the night there for an early flight to Bali. Do you think it’s worth going straight there and just waiting in the airport for the Bali flight? The bride and groom are in their mid 20s and can handle anything. They want to be surprised with the trip but I am nervous since I’ve never been to Bali. My second question: Are Ubud and Uluwatu good choices for their 2 places to visit while in Bali for 7 -9 days? They want relaxation, beautiful beaches and maybe a night or two of going “out on the town” where tourists hang out – in that preference order.

Hi Celli! I fly to Bali from California all the time! It’s not as bad as you think! There are no nonstops but one stop is really not so bad. I like laying over in either Singapore or Hong Kong from SF or LA. Singapore is a great VERY safe and clean city and a great layover spot! Don’t be nervous! They are going to LOVE Bali!! Ubud and Uluwatu are definitely great choices 🙂 I would also look into 2 nights in Canggu! (I have a canggu guide on the blog) it’s the trendy, cool town with lots of fun sunset bars and things like that that they might like! Maybe 3 nights Ubud, 3 Ulu, and 2 Canggu! Let me know if you need more help planning- I do custom itineraries! Xx

Hi Christina, Thank you for this amazing article. I’m planning my honeymoon in April 2020. One travel agency has advised : 1) 3 nights @ Ubud in 1 bedroom villa at Visesa Ubud Resort 5* in Ubud 2) 5 nights @ Seminyak in 1 bedroom villa at Impiana Private Villas Seminyak 5*

Another travel agency advised : 1) 3 nights @ in Ubud at Maya Ubud resort: the premier pool villa 3. 5 nights @ Nusa Dua at Sofitel resort: luxury room

Which one is better? Not sure if you’re familiar with all theses accommodation? Seminyak doesn’t appear on the top of your beach list? any specific reason?

Hi Mo! I have not stayed in any of the resorts you’ve mentioned but I would ask the travel agent if they themselves have been to Bali before and stayed in these places? I find a lot of people get ill-advised from agents that are just trying to make a commission! I prefer the combo of Ubud and Seminyak to Nusa Dua – it’s quite touristy, but if that’s your guys’ vibe, go for it!

We are booking our honeymoon for June 2020! Your guides have been so helpful! We would be in Bali for 10 full days…do you think thats enough time to go from Uluwata to Lembongan and then end at Ubud? Would that be too much time in transit? Additionally, how much spending money on average should you except to spend at the resorts for food, alcoholic beverages, and activities?

' src=

Love all your Bali guides – they are extremely helpful as I’m starting to plan my Bali honeymoon for September 2020! We will have 11 days/10 nights in Bali and while I want to squeeze in as much as possible, I also want to make sure we have downtime and don’t feel like we are always on the go (especially because we are flying to Bali right after our wedding). Currently I’m thinking 2 nights in Canggu, 3 in Ubud, 2 in Nusa Lembongan and 3 in Uluwatu (in that order). Do you think this is overly ambitious and we’d be better off staying in 3 places/doing day trips? Would love your advice!

Hi Jill! Thank you so mch! That’s so exciting! I think that’s a great gameplan! As long as you don’t mind moving around a bit, it’s great to see all the different areas of the island!! And those 4. are my favorites 🙂

' src=

Thank you for all the Bali insights — they have been super helpful in starting to plan our 9-night honeymoon coming from the US. We thought we’d spend 2 nights in somewhere like Nusa Dua (still debating where to go these first 2 nights) to fight off jet lag, then 3 in Ubud, and 4 at Ayana Resort on Jimbaran Bay. We’ve heard great things about Ayana so we wanted to stay there but also want to hit up some of the great spots/beaches in Uluwatu. Would we be able to do that while staying at Ayana — i.e. is the travel to Uluwatu areas easy enough without requiring us to actually stay in Uluwatu? Thank you!

Hi Jake! It definitely is fine to day trip to Uluwatu for the day from Ayana/Jimbaran! I love the Ayana! That’s a great choice.

Hi Christina Firstly, thanks for all the super useful and interesting info on your blog, we’re planning our honeymoon in Bali for May next year (2021) in the hope everything is back to ‘normal’ by then. I also just wanted to say how sorry I am that you’ve had to postpone your own wedding and honeymoon. I can’t imagine how difficult that must have been – I’ve read and shared your blog post with friends of mine who’ve had to do the same.

I was hoping to get your advice on our Bali trip and the order in which to do things – we’re looking at: 5 days ubud, 5 days uluwatu, 3 days seminyak and 3 days nusa lembongan…do you think that sounds about right? And would you have a recommended order in which to do things? Thanks! X

Hi! Aw thank you so much for sharing my posts. It means the world to me! And I’m glad you chose Bali for your honeymoon! You’re going to absolutely love it. You can really do any order, but I’d break up the beachy spots. So maybe start in Ubud, go to Nusa L, Seminyak, then end in Uluwatu (which is pretty close to the airport too!). But really any order works! I could also see starting in Seminyak, going to Nusa L, then relaxing in Ubud, then beaching it up in Ulu. Sounds like such a lovely itinerary!

Awesome, thank you so much. I’ve been going around in circles trying to work out what’s best so it’s great to get your advice. Really appreciate! Thanks. X

The Ultimate Bali Honeymoon Itinerary

Romantic sunset dinners, incredible natural sceneries, and affordable luxury stays are just some of the reasons newlyweds find themselves honeymooning in Bali.

When it comes to planning the best Bali honeymoon itinerary this island can accommodate whatever your dream honeymoon looks like, adventure or leisure!

Book Your Flight The easiest way to find cheap airfares to Bali is via a flight search engine. I love using  Skyscanner to find and compare the best flight deals.

Book Your Accommodation Both Booking.com and  Agoda are my favourites as you can search a whole city or neighbourhood for the best places to stay and filter for your specific needs, like free wifi, a private pool or your favourite hotel chain.

Book Your Travel Insurance  Choosing good travel insurance is important when you plan your trip. Travel insurance protects you against falling sick while travelling, unexpected injury, theft, as well as cancellations. My favourite company to buy travel insurance from is SafetyWing , they also cover COVID-19.

Book Your Tours  Check out these  awesome tours in Bali  with my tour partner Get Your Guide.

The first thing you’ll need to decide when planning your Bali honeymoon is what part of Bali you want to spend it in!

There are so many areas to choose from but each has its unique feel, where one might cater to you better than another.

These are the top Bali honeymoon destinations that should make your list to choose from.

Spend Your Bali Honeymoon in Uluwatu

The first place that comes to mind when I think of a honeymoon destination in Bali is Uluwatu .

It’s further south away from the busiest part of the island, and with less bustle, it feels all the more secluded.

Uluwatu has amazing cliffside beaches and some of the best sunset views, which contributes to the perfect setting for a laidback, romantic getaway.

Top Romantic Hotel Pick: Six Senses Uluwatu

Located on top of a cliff offering amazing views over the Indian Ocean from all rooms. Enjoy the best location in all of Uluwatu to go explore Padang Padang and Dreamland Beach easily. Absolutely luxurious, this is a perfect stay for any honeymoon.

Spend Your Bali Honeymoon in Nusa Dua

Nusa Dua is one of the best Bali honeymoon places as it’s home to many of Bali’s luxurious upscale resorts. If you’re looking for high-end spas and fine dining then this is the place!

Apart from beautiful resorts, Nusa Dua is also much quieter and very relaxed, making it a great destination for those looking to stay in Bali’s finest honeymoon resorts.

Top Romantic Hotel Pick: The Laguna Nusa Dua

bali honeymoon trip plan

Spend Your Bali Honeymoon in Seminyak

Filled with small shops, plenty of cafes, and a location that feels central to everything is where you’ll find Seminyak .

There are some beautiful villas in this area, and when it comes to dining you’ll never run out of places to go.

Seminyak is the perfect romantic getaway for people looking to be a little more involved in Bali’s action while being in a convenient location to travel to other areas too!

Top Romantic Hotel Pick: W Bali Seminyak

Spend Your Bali Honeymoon in Ubud

Ubud is set further in from the coast, up in the hills, surrounded by the jungle and sweeping rice paddies views.

There’s a peaceful ambiance here, which is more focused on yoga and spirituality than in other locations.

Here you’ll be surrounded by nature and feel at peace, setting the perfect tone for a relaxing honeymoon escape.

Pro tip: Book a stay a little outside of Ubud town to truly get to enjoy your honeymoon in Bali.

Top Romantic Hotel Pick: The Kayon Ubud

The Kayon Jungle Resort

Spend Your Bali Honeymoon in Canggu

Within the past few years Canggu has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Bali!

It’s a great combination of beaches with perfect surfing conditions, plenty of yoga classes, and bars where you’ll want to dance the night away.

Canggu is an all-around crowd-pleaser and a great place to stay if you’re looking for a lively honeymoon.

Top Romantic Hotel Pick: Theanna Villa and Spa Canggu

Spend Your Bali Honeymoon in Munduk

Munduk is too often overlooked, set away from the mass tourism where a more authentic side of Bali lives.

The mountains are the perfect place for a romantic escape with some of the most beautiful scenes on the island.

You’ll want to keep in mind, Munduk’s climate is a bit different from the rest of Bali. It has cooler temperatures averaging between 20-25 degrees, the perfect conditions to cosy up by the fire!

Top Romantic Hotel Pick: Sanak Retreat Munduk

Spend Your Bali Honeymoon on the Gili Island

If you picture your honeymoon with white sand beaches and crystal blue waters, you may want to consider spending some time on the Gili Islands .

If your Bali honeymoon itinerary is 8 days or more, you will have plenty of time for the 2-hour boat ride from Bali and to still see other areas!

The Gili’s are known for incredible snorkel experiences, horseback rides on the beach, and picturesque sunsets, it’s a newlywed's dream destination!

Top Romantic Hotel Pick: Meno House Gili Meno

Meno House Honeymoon Itinerary

Choosing Bali as your honeymoon destination doesn’t mean you are limited to staying on one part of the island.

If you feel torn between where to stay, split up your trip and stay in 2 different places! I’d recommend doing this, as each part of Bali is unique and offers different experiences.

You could spend half your trip in Ubud’s jungle, and the other half on the tropical Gili Islands !

You’ll still want to have some downtime on your honeymoon without feeling like you’re constantly moving around, so I would try to keep it to 2 destinations. This will allow you to make day trips from different parts of the island but also ensures there is still enough time to just kick back and relax.

Keep in mind, a 10-day Bali honeymoon itinerary is going to look a bit different than a Bali honeymoon itinerary that’s 5 days.

Both are still ample amounts of time to relax and enjoy Bali, but for a 5-day trip, I’d stick to one location and explore from there. The island is small enough you can still see so much without moving to a new accommodation!

Bali honeymoon places

Depending on what part of the island you’re staying on, there may be some specific activities in that region that you should add to your Bali honeymoon itinerary.

However, here are some romantic things you can pretty much do anywhere in Bali!

Sunset Horseback Riding

If you’re staying on or near one of Bali’s beautiful coasts, then look into doing a sunset horseback ride! I’d recommend checking out Salty Cowboy , where you can even book a photo shoot with the horses.

Waterfall Tour

Visiting at least one waterfall on your Bali honeymoon is a must-do! It doesn’t get much more romantic than that.

Booking a waterfall tour will allow you to see multiple waterfalls in one day, while you just adventure, relax, and enjoy your time together.

Helicopter Ride

If you’re looking to see a lot in a short amount of time, then booking a helicopter ride might be the perfect excursion!

There is nothing more scenic or extravagant than the views you’ll get from above, leaving you with an unforgettable trip.

Private Cooking Class

A private cooking class is a new and exciting way to make one of your first dinners together as newlyweds.

It will be fun to learn, laugh, and share this memory while doing something unique to Bali’s culture. Make sure to prebook your cooking class to not miss out.

Couples Spa Day

For when you’re truly looking to relax and be pampered, book a couples spa day!

Bali has some truly incredible spas, and you are sure to find one anywhere you choose to stay on the island.

If you need some inspiration, here is an example of what a 2 week Bali honeymoon itinerary may look like!

Even if your Bali itinerary is 10 days of honeymooning, this should still give you a good idea of how to break up your trip. Depending on your preference, you can easily spend more or less time in one area!

What to Do in Uluwatu

Visit padang padang beach.

This beach made its rise to fame during the movie “Eat, Pray, Love” and remains to be one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

It’s tucked away in a little cove, where you and your loved one can surf, swim, or just relax on this stunning shore. There are also plenty more Uluwatu beaches to visit if that's your idea of a honeymoon holiday.

Watch the Sunset at Uluwatu Temple

If you’re looking to have a special evening while experiencing some of Bali’s rich culture, I’d highly recommend visiting Uluwatu Temple.

It is one of Bali’s most beautiful temples with the best sunset views, and you can even get tickets to watch a traditional Kecak dance on the temple’s grounds!

Indulge Yourself at One Eighty

Not only does One Eighty have delicious food that will make you feel like you’re dining in luxury, but it also has a glass-bottomed infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean.

The pool and restaurant are perched on a cliff's edge where you can spend a romantic afternoon with seriously incredible views.

Best Romantic Hotels in Uluwatu

Anantara Uluwatu Six Senses Uluwatu The Ungasan Clifftop Resort

Best Restaurants in Uluwatu

This all-day cafe is not too far from Padang Padang beach, and is a great option for breakfast before you spend your day catching some waves.

It has similar cuisine to what you’d find in Australia, which is a great sign because there is nothing better than brunch in Australia!

Rock Bar Bali

This bar is known around the globe to be one of the best sunset dining experiences on the island!

You won’t regret booking a table here to enjoy delicious cocktails, tasty food, and an unforgettable sunset.

Menega Cafe

It should be on your bucket list to experience a Jimbaran seafood dining experience at least once while you’re in Uluwatu!

Here you will be served amazing, fresh seafood, while you dig your toes right into the sand and listen to the waves crash in front of you.

The tables are candlelit and sometimes you will even find there’s live music!

Six Senses Uluwatu Bali

What to Do in Ubud

Campuhan ridge walk.

If you’re looking to get out for a beautiful walk through nature, then this is a great activity to add to your honeymoon in Bali itinerary.

The Campuhan Ridge Walk has no entry fees and should take around an hour or so to complete. It’s a great way to start your day and surround yourself with some of Ubud’s most beautiful natural scenery!

Jaens Spa Ubud

Jaens Spa in Ubud offers a romantic Bali honeymoon package, which includes a flower footbath, full body massage and body scrub, and a romantic bubble bath with rose petals. The service takes about 2 hours and is the perfect way to unwind with your loved one.

Tandem Bali Swing

There are several swings in Ubud’s area for couples to enjoy a little adrenaline rush, and make memories that’ll last a lifetime!

The swings in this area offer incredible sweeping views of rice terraces and make for a great photo opportunity. Guarantee your entry by booking your Bali swing in advance.

Best Romantic Hotels in Ubud

Bisma Eight The Kayon Jungle Resort Como Shambhala Estate

Best Restaurants in Ubud

Kubu at mandapa.

This beautiful riverside restaurant offers an 8-course dining experience inside one of Kubu’s private bamboo cocoons.

The experience couples have at this restaurant tends to be a highlight of their trip, and one of the most romantic dinners you can have on the island.

This is one of the best brunch spots you will find in the spiritual centre of Bali.

Zest offers delicious plant-based food, with large portions, and amazing views… it doesn’t get much better than that!

When food and art combine, you get Locavore. Locavore is one of the most popular restaurants to dine at in Ubud, and maybe in all of Bali!

Make sure if you are hoping to get a table, that you make a reservation well in advance.

The Kayon Jungle Resort

What to Do in the Gili Islands

Snorkel excursion.

One of the best things to do on the Gili Islands is to go snorkelling. You can book a snorkel tour in advance or when you arrive on the island, or you can rent equipment and snorkel straight from the shore. Expect to see fish, turtles, and underwater sculptures!

The public ferries make it easy to hop around between the 3 Gili Islands, allowing you to see all of them during your stay.

There’s nothing more romantic than sailing through turquoise blue waters, relaxing on white sand beaches, and living the true island lifestyle!

Watch an Outdoor Movie

Spend a romantic evening watching a movie at one of the various outdoor cinemas on the Gili Islands!

If you’re staying on Gili T, head to the sunset side of the island where you’ll find venues playing movies from 7 pm.

Best Romantic Hotels in the Gili Islands

Vila Ombak Sunrise Resort Meno House

Best Restaurants in the Gili Islands

Mahamaya is the most popular restaurant in Gili Meno, known for its fresh seafood barbeques and romantic atmosphere.

You will get to have this upscale dining experience right on the beach, while you take in the island's mesmerising views.

Jali Kitchen

Located on Gili Trawangan set further back from the sea, lies some of the most delicious food you’ll find on Gili T!

It’s worth sacrificing the ocean views for the authentic dishes they serve here.

Head to Mowies on Gili Air if you want to enjoy the best cocktail around with an amazing sunset view.

They offer comfortable beachfront seats, happy hour prices, and serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

Meno House Honeymoon Itinerary

Bali is an amazing year-round destination for newlyweds, however, the best months to go are typically between May and September.

These months are during the dry season when the weather will be most favourable.

August and September particularly have the least amount of rainfall and the lowest humidity, without being too crowded, which makes these months the best time to enjoy Bali’s outdoors!

If you’re planning a Bali honeymoon itinerary for 7 days, more or less, here are a few extra tips you may want to keep in mind:

  • Pack swimsuits, sunscreen, hats, sandals, and evening dresses for dinners or nights out. But make sure to leave some room in your suitcase in case you decide to shop! It’s all too tempting to leave Bali with more than what you came with.
  • You will be able to exchange currency easily once you arrive at Denpasar airport. I would recommend doing it here even if the rate is slightly less favourable, simply to avoid any dodgy ATMs or exchange shops you may find in town.
  • Don’t plan anything crazy for your first days! Spend the beginning of your trip as newlyweds relaxing. After planning a wedding and then travelling you may find yourself exhausted and wish you booked your first excursion for the following days.
  • There can be pretty heavy traffic in Bali. Make sure you allow extra time for yourself to get to any reservations or bookings on time.
  • Let hotels and restaurants know you are coming for your honeymoon – they will be sure to make your stay all the more special and romantic!

No matter how you spend your honeymoon in Bali, you are guaranteed to make beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.

Whether it’s strolling through the jungle or lying on the beach there is something for everyone on this beautiful island, so just make sure to create the best Bali honeymoon itinerary that caters to you!

  • Must-Pack Items: In Bali, you’ll need to dress for the weather but be conscious of some of the areas you might be visiting. You’ll need loose, cotton clothing to stay cool. If you’re considering a visit to one of the religious sites, you’ll need to dress more modestly.
  • Activities and Hot Spots: Bali offers lots of activities, everything from lounging days on the beach to a romantic horseback ride. Try to enjoy a few Ubud hot spots, and plan a few activities that enjoy.
  • Cost: It can be difficult to nail down an exact range, but that’s because Bali offers so many options. Accommodations are usually the most expensive piece to a honeymoon, and Bali makes it easier to fit a budget.

Balmy evenings and sultry days, Bali is a tropical haven located 8 degrees south of the equator. To enjoy your Bali honeymoon to the fullest, the dry months between May to September are considered the best time to visit. Experience comfortably warm days at the sun-bleached beaches without having to worry about sudden rainfall and intolerable humidity.

The period just after the dry season is perfect to get slightly cheaper and easily available accommodations. Moreover, the beaches and tourist attractions are less crowded so you two can enjoy some privacy. Try going in late September, October, or April.

What to Pack and Wear on Your Trip

As Bali has hot and humid weather, it is best to wear loose, cotton-based breathable clothes. While it is acceptable to dress up in swimwear on the beach, make sure you wear a modest attire while visiting temples and other religious landmarks. Don’t forget to grab a pair of flip-flops.  

If you are bringing your electronics like a tablet, laptop, and phone with you, make sure you have a proper adapter before you plug them in. In Bali, CEE7 power outlets are commonly used.

Padma Ubud Resort

bali honeymoon trip plan

“Driving through the entrance gates of The Padma Ubud Resort you feel instantly relaxed. The gorgeous gardens and ponds surrounding the lobby are preparing you for the most spectacular part of the resort, the infinity pool overlooking the river valley. Here you can laze away the days while enjoying cocktails by the pool.

The Padma is perfect especially the club rooms that have extra benefits like evening cocktails, club lounge access, and an outdoor balcony spa in the suites. An amazing way to start the day is to be served a floating breakfast in the hidden pool and then enjoy one of the many activities like yoga, a cooking class, or a very special Bali voyage in the hotel’s very own safari convertible. Starting price point for rooms at Padma Ubud Resort $250 USD.”

Kate Comer – Rolling Along With Kids

“We married at Alila Ubud, a simple, intimate and just all-in-all beautiful resort perched above the Ayung River valley. Where the highlights, for us, included the magnificent balcony views over rainforest canopies, the perfect (award-winning) infinity pool, and just the overall closeness to nature.

Wedding at Alila Ubud

As we would wake each morning to troupes of passing monkeys, and other unexpected visits, like a flying lizard and a friendly tree snake. The food at the resort also deserves a mention, and the resort’s infused cocktails were the best I’ve found to date in Bali.

And just everything about the resort would have me back in a heartbeat. We 100% chose the right resort. Price wise, superior guest rooms generally start around $200 and they, of course, have wedding and Bali honeymoon packages to choose from.”

Allan – Life Less Ordinary

The Komaneka at Keramas

Food at the pool at The Komaneka at Keramas Bali

“The Komaneka at Keramas Resort in Bali is a beautiful hideaway on a black-sand beach that is tranquil, calm, and secluded. This particular beach has plenty of space and almost nobody sunbathing on the sand – it’s more popular with surfers thanks to the huge waves.

The wellness-oriented villa resort currently has 9 pool villas, as well as an Olympic-sized pool, spa, yoga facilities, and a delicious restaurant.  I just love their catwalk over the rice fields, delicious floating breakfast, and opulent rooms. Most of all, I loved how romantic it was, and how calm and quiet. It is a perfect resort for a Bali honeymoon”

Kristin Addis – Be My Travel Muse

Udhiana resort in Ubud

Bali honeymoon resort Udhiana resort in Ubud

“ The Udhiana Resort in Ubud, Bali, is a boutique hotel with some of the most spectacular views I’ve ever seen. There’s a gorgeous infinity pool overlooking a lush jungle valley, and the views from the bar and restaurant are equally stunning. It’s in a secluded spot a little outside Ubud’s town center and was pretty quiet and relaxing.

Every room is actually a private villa with an infinity plunge pool and a deck. Our sliding glass doors opened onto the balcony, and you could see the incredible views without even getting out of bed. The bath also looked out through a large window onto jungle views. There isn’t a spa at the resort, but you can have spa treatments in your villa.

Prices at the Udhiana Resort average around £150 per night, a little higher in high season. I booked my stay several months in advance and paid less.”

Allison Smith – Flights to Fancy

The Legian Bali

The Legian Bali pool side dinner and lounge

“ The Legian Bali  is one of the most luxurious hotels in Bali. It’s beautifully located next to the beach in Seminyak, and from the rooms, you have a very nice ocean view and sunset. If you want to make this a truly romantic experience, you should book one of their private villas with a pool.

These are located next to the hotel and offer both privacy and a private butler. Breakfast can be served by the pool, and it’s the perfect start to the day. One of my favorite things about their villa besides the private pool is the outdoor bathtub. Enjoy a romantic bathtub experience with your loved one in full privacy.

It feels like you’re in the jungle, but in reality, you’re within walking distance of the hustle and bustle of Seminyak. The resort also offers spa treatments, yoga sessions, and afternoon tea.

There are various romantic packages you can order when booking, and the best way to ensure a perfect honeymoon is to contact the hotel before making a reservation.

Prices start from 500 Euro per night”

Samabe Bali Suites and Villas

Samabe Bali Suites and Villas

If your idea of the perfect Bali honeymoon includes a combination of luxury and privacy then the Samabe Bali Suites should be at the top of your list. This resort is amazing. With 81 villas and suites set over 8 hectares, it’s easy to have the privacy you want while still having 5-star service and amenities.

The resort is set by the beach in Nusa Dua and has pools, multiple, restaurants, bars, and an activity program. It will help you organize day tours and do any sightseeing you want if you feel active. If you want to stay in then you have everything you need as well with the choice of your own private pool villa or a suite (with the option of a private pool as well!).

There is a choice of all-inclusive packages. I recommend the unlimited which gives you all meals as well as a cool activity program. Don’t worry if you aren’t feeling active, the “activity” can be a couples massage in your own room. There are also handy extras included like all your washing.

This truly is the place to go and indulge while still getting to enjoy Bali and have all the privacy you wish.

Hideout Lightroom in Bali

Hideout Lightroom in Bali honeymoon resort

“If you’re looking for a romantic and relaxing jungle getaway, I can highly recommend you to book a couple of nights at Hideout Lightroom in Bali .

This eco house is completely made out of bamboo and is handmade by the locals and its owners. It’s a unique place to stay that’s tucked away in the countryside of Bali – about 2.5 hours from Seminyak and 1h from Ubud. Here you can really enjoy the rural side of the island with its beautiful lush nature and friendly locals.

If you want to disconnect from everything and just spend some quality time with your loved one, then this is the perfect place. Imagine yourself sipping on your morning coffee and listening to the sound of the flowing river, taking outdoor flower baths, and just relaxing in bed at night while listening to the sound of nature – it’s an experience you’ll never forget.

It’s a romantic and an adventurous experience for those who aren’t extremely afraid of bugs, dogs, and cats (the owners have a couple around that they’ve rescued). Just remember that this isn’t a 5-star luxury hotel, it’s a unique and cozy AirBnB rental.

If you want to book this bamboo house you have to do it in advance since it’s extremely popular. It costs from $119, and a 5-night stay during October can cost around $683 – but it all depends on the dates and demand.”

Menjangan Dynasty Resort

Menjangan Dynasty Resort infinity pool

“Menjangan Dynasty Resort is a luxury glamping resort on Banyuwedang Bay in northern Bali far away from the crowds. It’s close to Menjangan Island, one of the best snorkeling and diving spots in Bali, and West Bali National Park for hiking. We celebrated our anniversary here but it would be ideal for honeymooners looking for a quiet, relaxing resort.

Our tent was as luxurious as any room we’ve stayed in with a comfortable bed, ensuite, air conditioning, minibar, fast wifi, and all the amenities you could need. Our terrace was surrounded by frangipani trees and had comfortable seating and a sea view.

The resort was perfect for relaxing—either on the small but lovely white sand beach with a calm sea (on an island where black surf beaches are the norm) or by the stunning infinity pool overlooking the sea. It was very quiet and we usually had the pool to ourselves.

Tents cost from $145 a night or you could splurge on a villa tent with a private infinity pool for $368 a night. We visited Menjangan Dynasty as part of our off-the-beaten-track  Bali road trip .”

Erin McNeaney – Never Ending Voyage

If you’re looking for something a little different than a resort stay, you might consider finding a local Airbnb to experience the beauty and wonder of Bali. Airbnbs in the area can be a little more accommodating when it comes to different budgets and preferences. Plus, there are tons of different styles and options.

  • Villas: These accommodations usually include amenities like private pools and beautiful gardens, so your stay will feel a little more secluded.
  • Balinese Houses: If you’re looking for a way to immerse yourself in the local culture, consider a traditional Balinese home. 
  • Beachfront Bungalows: These bungalows offer you the beach experience you’re looking for. There are different listings in different areas of the island as well. You can also find surfer’s shacks that offer a cozy, surf-themed stay.
  • Apartments and Studios: For a more affordable option, consider booking a smaller apartment or studio.
  • Treehouses and Eco-Lodges: If you’re looking to get into nature, you might consider a treehouse or eco-lodge. These listings are often set deeper into the island’s expansive jungle.
  • Ubud Retreats: The Ubud area is considered the cultural heart of Bali. You can find accommodations that feel much more like a relaxed retreat.

Bali offers many different activities to fill your honeymoon days. The best part, they have a wide range of activities to fit any couple and any interest.

Looking to do a little sightseeing? Take a helicopter ride over the island or venture out to some smaller islands. If you want to stay close to the resort and enjoy a little pampering, book a spa day and a romantic sunset dinner. Or check out some of these other great options.

Enjoy A Helicopter Ride

Take a once-in-a-lifetime trip with an exclusive private helicopter fligh t over the Kintamani volcano. Get ready to be amazed by jaw-dropping views and stunning panoramas of Bali’s active volcanoes on Mount Batur and Mount Agung.

You’ll be picked up from your hotel and meet your pilot at the Mason Elephant Park Heliport near Ubud.

Visit Mount Batur At Sunrise

Make it to Mount Batur at Sunrise on a private 4×4 tour . On your way, see the Perapen Temple, Lava Ball Point, and the incredible Kintamani landscape surrounding you. See world-famous black Lava formations and witness the extraordinary view of an active volcano in the distance. After sunrise, enjoy a long soak in the healing waters of Batur Natural Hot Spring.

Go Horseback Riding

Horseback riding in Bali

Enjoy the quiet coastlines, breezy rice fields, paddy trails, and secluded beaches while horseback riding. There are several popular horse stables near the remote beaches including Berawa in Canggu, Pererenan Beach, and Tanah Lot.

Don’t worry if you don’t have awesome equestrian skills. Stables and tour operators such as Ubad Horse Stables and Bali Equestrian Centre offer guided tours at a great price for any experience level.

Eat A Sunset Dinner

Raise up your glass to the gleaming sundown on the beach or with views of the rice fields . In Bali, you have numerous options to have the best and most romantic dinner of your lifetime in a fairy-tale setup. It can be an exquisite meal on a cruise, a surreal cave dining experience with sunset views, a cozy picnic on the beach, or a breathtakingly beautiful cliff-side dinner with ocean views.

Go On A Night Cruise

Watch the lit-up Bali and its ocean from a night cruise. Under the star-stricken velvety skies, create special memories enveloped by warm, salted wind and the sounds of the waves. Bali Hai Cruises takes you towards Nusa Dua on a luxury catamaran on their Aristocrat evening cruise. When you are done gazing at the horizon, enjoy dinner before dancing away at a disco.

Enjoy a Spa Day

Leave a day to relax at a spa. The many resorts have spas with a variety of treatments from foot treatments, body massages, and exfoliating body scrub. Sip on sparkling wine as you relax in the iconic flower baths until you move on to more adventures.

Have Tea At The Hanging Gardens of Bali

Enjoy a romantic afternoon tea at the Hanging Gardens of Bali. Choose from a wide array of snacks and desserts consisting of English delights that are sure to satisfy your senses. Pair these delectable bites with your choice of premium Indonesian coffee or a wide array of teas.

To make your visit even more unforgettable, you’ll enjoy all these treats near the hotel’s famous twin-tiered cascading pool surrounded by the incredible Ubud forest.

Go Scuba Diving or Snorkeling

Bali has some of the best sites for snorkeling, and Tulamben is the most sought-after destination for scuba diving & snorkeling. The prices vary with the season but it is easily affordable.

Visit Nusa Penida & Gilli Islands

Nusa Penida & Gilli Islands are romantic getaways from Bali. Located near Bali, these islands can be reached by Speed boat. The place is spectacular, white sand, blue waters are its main features.

Bali food is a diverse treat and highlights both the rich history of the island and some of the influences from surrounding areas. You can always find traditional Indonesian cuisine but with a little international flair. 

The two biggest staples are rice and a blend of rich, flavorful spices. Be on the lookout for these more iconic Bali dishes – sate, lawar, and sambal. No matter what you choose, you’ll be in for a great meal.

When looking at the cost of a honeymoon in Bali , there is a huge range of prices. You can spend as little as $50 a night at an Airbnb or $1000+ for the best luxury resorts. When planning your trip, start by looking at Google Flights to get an idea of flights. From the west coast of the US, you can expect to pay around $1000 round trip for economy fares.

Accommodations are a big piece of the honeymoon price tag. If you are on the tightest budget, you can spend $50 a night at an Airbnb. The average resorts cost between $75-$150 a night. If you are looking for iconic luxury resorts they range in price from $350-750+.

Another aspect to consider is activities. If you are hoping to relax around the beach and do a few activities this will not be a major contributor to your cost. Private and exclusive tours can add thousands to your price.

You can see it is hard to put a price estimate since there is such a vast range of costs for Bali honeymoons, but hopefully, this will give you an idea.

When choosing where to honeymoon in Bali, assume you will spend time in or around Ubud for some time in the Jungle. Additionally, you want to pick another beach area to enjoy for a few days.

Sprawling on the highlands of Bali, Ubud is renowned for rice terraces and tropical jungles and features ancient Hindu temples, rock-cut shrines like Elephant Cave, and other holy landmarks.

During your Bali honeymoon, visit the town’s bustling market where you will come across traditional arts and crafts and spices, and gain an insight into Indonesian culture. Participate in an authentic Balinese cooking class at Paon Bali and whip up a delicious meal for each other. Walk through Sari and Campuhan Ridge and enjoy stunning views.

Don’t forget to visit Kintamani to check out the sublime waterfall, lake, and volcanic landscapes. After a fun-filled, but tiring day, unwind with a couple’s massage at a luxury spa.

bali honeymoon trip plan

Uluwatu is home to some amazing beaches in Bali as well as breathtaking clifftop views. There are some of the best luxury hotels on the island and you can find beaches that feel tucked away and secluded. Visit the Uluwatu temple at sunset to enjoy an amazing view over the cliffs into the ocean.

A trip to Bali is not complete without a trip to the beach. Seminyak gives you wide, sandy beaches without the rowdiness you find at Kuta, the most popular tourist spot in Bali. Without as many crowds you can enjoy the more artistic cafes and artisan shops in the area. 

There is a wide variety of cuisine and a plethora of highly-rated spas and resorts to stay at. Visit the beaches in are area, relax, enjoy a spa treatment, and enjoy your time together.

Nusa Dua feels a bit more quiet and secluded with more luxury hotels. The beaches are less crowded here and are very calm. Most honeymooners in Bali come to Nusa Dua to get away from it all. 

The area is more suited for guests who would like to stay around the resort for a while. It is a perfect place for relaxation, but you can still take day trips to nearby areas if you are looking for more excitement.

Bali is an extraordinarily popular island of Indonesia , and for all the right reasons. Most people in Bali speak English, making getting around a lot easier than some of the other remote island destinations. The Balinese are renowned for their incredible hospitality and spirit. I can also tell you first hand from experience, they are one of the kindest cultures in the world. Some parts of Bali, like Kuta and Seminyak, are heavily westernised and extremely populated with tourists. This means there’s plenty of home comforts and important infrastructures. But it also means these cities will be a lot more about the hustle and bustle than others on the island. Bali is predominately Hindu and has plenty of breathtaking religious sites to visit and traditions to be in awe of. If you respect the locals and even try your hand at learning a few phrases of Bahasa Indonesian, you’ll be welcomed into their beautiful island life and culture with open arms for your Bali honeymoon.

Balinese Visa Requirements

If you’re planning on a honeymoon in Bali, Indonesia you should first look into your country’s visa requirements. Plenty of nationalities are able to visit visa-free for up to 30 days including your arrival and departure day e.g. Australia, Canada, USA or the UK. If you plan to visit Indonesia for longer than 30 days, you can pre-apply for an extended visa or purchase one on arrival for around 35USD. This visa grants you the original 30 days, and then after an application to an immigration office within Indonesia, you’ll be granted an extra 30 days, and this can only be used once. 30 days in Indonesia would be a dream honeymoon getaway, but if you’re interested in the extra 30 days, make sure to grab your visa first. To have a hassle-free Bali honeymoon, arrange your Indonesian visa beforehand with Visa HQ .

What Is The Best Time To Visit Bali?

Bali has that beautiful tropical island climate all year round, but certain months have less humidity and less of a crowd. Bali has two seasons; wet and dry. The wet season has more rainfall, but temperatures sit a little lower, and the crowds are a little thinner. So, if you’re after an island getaway for your Bali honeymoon without the scorching temperatures and the long lines for attractions. Then it’s best to head on your honeymoon in Bali anytime from November to March. As long as you don’t mind a bit of rain! The best time to visit Bali is from April to September during the dry season. The dry season brings beautiful temperatures in the high 20’s to mid-30’s Celsius. This means better visibility for water sports like scuba diving and snorkelling. The crowds are a little larger following the nicer weather but for good reason. During the middle of the year brings the least amount of rain. From personal experience, the sweet spot for visiting Bali is April/May or September/October. These shoulder season months offer great temperatures with little rain and might even get you some discounted rooms as tourist numbers are lower.

Arriving in Bali

Arriving in Bali by flight means you’ll land in the capital Denpasar . Plenty of airlines fly to Bali from all over the world, including budget airlines. From personal experience, the best flight to Bali is with Garuda Indonesia. You’ll be able to get great flight deals all year round for your honeymoon in Bali with Skyscanner , especially from Australia and the UK. Once you arrive at the airport and get through customs, you may be greeted by an overwhelming crowd of drivers and tour guides just itching to give you a cab ride. The best way to make your arrival smooth and hassle-free is by  pre-booking a transfer to your accommodation . If you’ve booked a transfer and sent your driver/accommodation your flight details, they’ll be awaiting your arrival just outside the exit doors. You’ll be free to take in your surroundings and get your incredible honeymoon in Bali underway.

Other options include hiring a driver from your hotel (most hotels will offer such services) to take you around for the day, or just to pick you up and drop you off from the airport.

Another popular option for those who are qualified to do so is hiring a mophead to zip around the island on. This can be useful for those that hold the license, are experienced on motorcycles including the Balinese roads and you have the correct travel insurance to do so. Otherwise, another great and much safer option is to hire bicycles for your honeymoon in Bali. Spend your days cycling amongst rice paddies, to waterfalls, by sunsets, and to local markets.

Taxis For Your Honeymoon In Bali

An even better option than a taxi is  Grab ! It’s 2-3x cheaper than a regular taxi and there are more drivers in South East Asia .

Bali Travel Tips

It is common practice in most places in Bali to remove your shoes before entering. This may include shops, tattoo parlours, spas, restaurants/cafes and people’s houses. If you see plenty of shoes at the entrance to a shop/building, it’s best to remove yours as well. You may find you like it better anyway! Tap water is not safe to drink in Bali if you’re not used to it. It can cause sickness/food poisoning if you accidentally ingest too much of it… Trust us, this is not how you want to be spending your honeymoon in Bali! Make sure to buy bottled water only. Avoid home-made ice cubes, and don’t open your mouth in the shower (that one is harder than you think). If you do happen to down a glass of Balinese tap water, the sickness will pass like food poisoning. You’ll probably need a trip or two to the local pharmacy for gastro stop and vitamin water containing electrolytes. Pocari sweat is a good sports drink to have when needing electrolytes. Bali is a majority Hindu island . As such, the locals make Hindu offerings every day; placed outside houses, shops, and temples. These are small, grass woven baskets of often fruit, rice, flowers and incense. Please remember to be respectful; make sure to avoid stepping on them or driving over them when you’re out and about. Avoid the temptation to try Luwak coffee . This coffee is made at the expense and exploitation of the Luwak animal and has been worsening due to tourist interest . If you plan on visiting temples and religious sites, make sure to wear clothes that cover your shoulders and knees for all genders. Tipping is not customary in Bali, but it is widely used and polite considering the cheap prices of most services.

In the evenings, explore Seminyak’s bustling streets lined with trendy boutiques, art galleries, and chic restaurants. Dance the night away at vibrant beach clubs or savor a romantic candlelit dinner overlooking the ocean.

Cultural Immersion in Ubud (3 nights)

Immerse yourselves in the rich cultural tapestry of Bali as you venture into the heart of the island, to the enchanting town of Ubud. Here, you’ll be captivated by the intricate dance performances at the Ubud Royal Palace and transported back in time as you explore ancient temples adorned with ornate carvings. Don’t miss the opportunity to witness the awe-inspiring beauty of the Tegalalang rice terraces, where you can take a leisurely stroll and bask in the serenity of nature. For nature lovers, the Campuhan Ridge offers a picturesque trail through lush greenery, providing breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.

Practical Tips for Your 10-Day Bali Honeymoon Itinerary:

  • Plan in Advance: Start planning your honeymoon itinerary well in advance to ensure you secure the best accommodations, flights, and activities. Bali is a popular destination, especially for honeymooners, so booking early will help you secure your preferred choices.
  • Choose the Right Time to Visit: Consider the time of year you plan to visit Bali. The peak tourist season is from June to August, so if you prefer fewer crowds, consider visiting during the shoulder seasons (April-May or September-October). Also, keep in mind the weather conditions, as Bali has a wet and dry season.
  • Pack Accordingly: Bali has a tropical climate, so pack lightweight and breathable clothing. Don’t forget essentials like sunscreen, insect repellent, and a hat to protect yourself from the sun. If you plan to visit temples, remember to carry a sarong or scarf to cover your shoulders and knees.
  • Transportation Options: Bali offers various transportation options, including private drivers, taxis, and ride-hailing services. Consider hiring a private driver for a more convenient and flexible experience. Alternatively, you can rent a scooter to explore the island independently if you’re comfortable with driving in Bali’s traffic.
  • Currency and Payments: The local currency in Bali is the Indonesian Rupiah (IDR). Ensure you have enough cash with you, as some smaller establishments may not accept credit cards. ATMs are widely available, but be cautious of potential scams. Inform your bank about your travel plans to avoid any card issues.
  • Respect Local Customs: Bali is deeply rooted in its cultural traditions, so it’s essential to respect local customs and traditions. Dress modestly when visiting temples or attending cultural performances. Be mindful of your behavior and avoid public displays of affection in more conservative areas.
  • Stay Hydrated and Eat Local: Bali’s tropical climate can be quite hot and humid, so it’s important to stay hydrated. Drink bottled water and fresh coconut water to keep cool and replenish electrolytes. Don’t miss out on trying the delicious local cuisine, including nasi goreng (fried rice), babi guling (suckling pig), and sate (satay).
  • Stay Connected: Consider purchasing a local SIM card or a portable Wi-Fi device to stay connected during your trip. Having internet access will help you navigate, stay in touch, and make online bookings.
  • Stay Safe: While Bali is generally safe, it’s important to take precautions. Be mindful of your belongings, especially in crowded areas. Use reputable taxi services or ride-hailing apps for transportation. Avoid excessive drinking and be cautious when swimming in the ocean, paying attention to local safety guidelines.
  • Enjoy the Moment: Finally, remember that your honeymoon is a special time to relax and enjoy each other’s company. Don’t stress too much about sticking to a rigid itinerary. Allow yourselves to embrace the spontaneity and serendipity of Bali, and create memories that will last a lifetime.

By keeping these practical tips in mind, you’ll be well-prepared to embark on your ultimate 10-day Bali honeymoon adventure. Enjoy the beauty, culture, and romance that Bali has to offer and cherish this special time together.


Your 10-day Bali honeymoon itinerary promises an unforgettable experience filled with relaxation, cultural immersion, and adventure. From the luxurious beachside resorts of Seminyak to the rich cultural heritage of Ubud, the breathtaking landscapes of Nusa Penida, and the tranquil retreat of the Gili Islands, you’ll discover the perfect balance for an idyllic honeymoon.

During your time in Bali, you’ll have the opportunity to unwind in stunning resorts, indulge in spa treatments, witness traditional dance performances, explore rice terraces, interact with playful monkeys, snorkel in crystal-clear waters, and enjoy romantic candlelit dinners on the beach. This itinerary allows you to immerse yourselves in the vibrant culture of Bali while also savoring moments of serenity and adventure.

Remember that this itinerary serves as a guide, and you can customize it based on your preferences and interests. Perhaps you want to extend your stay in a particular destination or add unique activities that resonate with you as a couple. Don’t hesitate to tailor the itinerary to create the perfect Bali honeymoon experience that reflects your love story.

To ensure a seamless honeymoon experience, it’s crucial to book accommodations and activities in advance. Bali is a popular destination, and early bookings will give you a wider range of options and help you secure your preferred choices.

As you embark on this romantic journey, cherish each moment together and embrace the magic of Bali. The stunning beaches, vibrant culture, and natural beauty will create a backdrop for memories that will last a lifetime. Congratulations on your upcoming Bali honeymoon, and may it be filled with love, joy, and unforgettable experiences.

Is 10 days enough for a Bali honeymoon?

Ten days provides a good amount of time to explore Bali and its key attractions. It allows you to experience a mix of relaxation, cultural immersion, and adventure. However, the length of your honeymoon ultimately depends on your preferences and the activities you wish to include. You can always customize your itinerary to fit your desired duration.

What is the best time to visit Bali for a honeymoon?

Bali’s dry season, from April to October, is generally considered the best time to visit. The weather is sunny, and rainfall is minimal. However, Bali’s beauty can be enjoyed year-round, and the wet season (November to March) has its own charm with lush green landscapes. Consider your preferences for weather, crowds, and activities when choosing the best time for your honeymoon.

How can I make my Bali honeymoon more romantic?

To add a touch of romance to your Bali honeymoon, consider booking a private candlelit dinner on the beach, arranging a couples’ spa treatment, or taking a romantic sunset cruise. You can also explore hidden waterfalls, have a picnic in the rice fields, or embark on a sunrise trek to Mount Batur. Don’t forget to take moments to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets and indulge in the island’s natural beauty together.

Remember, your Bali honeymoon is a special time to celebrate your love and create cherished memories. Feel free to customize your itinerary and activities to reflect your unique relationship and preferences. Enjoy every moment of this enchanting journey in paradise.

Central to everything, Seminyak is the best location if you're interested in doing day trips to the Nusa islands.

But over the last few years it has grown into one of the most buzzing tourist destinations. It's now full of beautiful villas, funky cafes and awesome bars that are open til the early hours!

Nestled in the main street of Canggu, where Batu Bolong dips towards Old Man's Beach, stands Fishbone Local, a contemporary eatery and bar that captures the seaside state of mind. Just a short stroll up from the waves, the restaurant has a clear focus: simple, precise preparations of the finest and freshest seafood available.

The market list menu rotates daily, taking its cues from Balinese beachside barbecue, but calls upon other coastal cultures for inspiration too. The bar keeps things short and sharp with a compact list of beer and wine, but the cocktails play a leading role. 

Timeless classics using native ingredients like kaffir lime, pandan and pomelo bring new life to old school drinks, while soft drinks, young coconuts and kombucha are also on offer.

At the very heart of Fishbone Local's ethos lies a commitment to stewardship and fair trade. The restaurant has partnered with Bali Sustainable Seafood, a social enterprise company.

Seafood Restaurants at Jimbaran Beach

Bali Honeymoon

Ditch the fancy venues, strip away the expensive cutlery, and let’s talk about being truly romantic. One underrated experience that isn’t talked about as much as it should be is the gorgeous sunset dinners that are happening across Jimbaran beach. 

For miles and miles, local restaurant owners pull out wooden tables, candles, and white tablecloths across the sandy white beach.

In their shops, they’ll have a variety of fresh fish displayed that have been caught that very afternoon – all at an extremely affordable price. This is that perfect last dinner you’ll want to plan. Located close to the airport, we encourage guests to book their last night in Jimbaran to comfortably enjoy this experience. Send us a message if you're looking for a great seafood restaurant in Jimbaran .

Top activities for your honeymoon in Bali

There is so much to do whilst on your honeymoon in Bali, the best way to plan your trip is to collectively decide all the activities you want to do, and then time them correctly so that it doesn’t become overwhelming. This is your honeymoon trip after all, and you’ll want to enjoy all of it - our Bali honeymoon guide should help to narrow down some of the best things to do!

Experience a Balinese Spa

Prana Spa Bali Honeymoon

With so many outdoor activities, we always encourage travelers to take a couple of days to really relax, indulge, and do something that’ll put a smile on their face - relaxing is just as important to consider when planning your Bali honeymoon itinerary. One of our top tours is our VIP Ultimate Spa Experience .

If you’ve done the Mount Batur Sunrise Hike, surf lessons, and had your big night out, will be more than a relaxing spa session for you and your partner.

We’ve partnered with Prana Spa to create a custom “Sun & Moon” spa massage that’ll have both of you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. 

Whether it’s the beginning or end of your trip, this is a great “pick-me-up” opportunity, and a major highlight to leave for the day before you board your flight.

Go on a day trip to Nusa Penida

For the days you're wanting to be out and about, we highly recommend taking a day trip to Nusa Penida. If you believe Bali is stunning, just wait till you see this little island right over the waters. Beyond beautiful sunsets, crystal clear water, and untouched sand – the picture you have of paradise in your head is what Nusa Penida looks like so it’s no wonder why it’s a part of so many Bali honeymoon guides!

With ForeverVacation, you can rely on us to organize everything from start to finish. In addition to having a personal guide, you’ll be invited to a private group chat with our local team to ensure all your needs are taken care of at any leg of the trip. 

Check out the video above for more of what you can expect from our Nusa Penida Instagram Tour: Most Famous Spots . 

Take a traditional Balinese cooking class

Cooking Class Honeymoon in Bali

They say you really get to know a person from traveling with them, but we believe you’ll really get to know them when you take a cooking class together! More than anything, we love organizing activities that create amazing memories for our guests. Do something unique on your once in a lifetime honeymoon in Bali and take yourselves out of your comfort zones!

Put both of your skills to the test with a really exciting Bali cooking class and see who can make the better Nasi Goreng!

Not only will you have the opportunity to cook a delicious Indonesian meal, you’ll also visit a local market to see where your fresh ingredients are purchased. Finish the day with a full immersion into local culture by visiting Tanah Lot – a historic beachfront temple that has the picturesque sunsets! 

If this excites you then you will love our Balinese Cooking Class & Tanah Lot Temple Visit , another worthy addition to our Bali honeymoon guide!

Climb a volcano together

mount ijen bali

One of the most exciting things it has to offer are its famous active volcano hikes. Among them are Mount Batur, Mount Bratan and Mount Agung - which has caused quite a few disruptions over the past few years. 

But if you’re looking to be blown away on your honeymoon to Bali, we recommend booking a Mount Ijen tour . Also known as the Kawah Ijen Crater, it really is spectacular, featuring the largest acid lake in the world and the only natural ‘blue fire’ on earth! What could be more romantic than experiencing that together?

Mount Ijen is actually situated in East Java, away from the hustle and bustle of central Bali, but our private Mount Ijen tour  makes it super easy, as we sort everything from start to finish for you! You and your loved one can relax and enjoy the experience as we'll pick you up directly from your hotel in Bali and are with you every step of the way. 

Best beaches to visit on your honeymoon in Bali

Life is all about the good times – that’s what you’re in Bali for! Chasing sunsets, splashing in turquoise colored water, and getting perfectly sun kissed - the Bali beaches are exactly where you need to be. While day clubs and pool parties are absolutely amazing, there’s something special about isolating yourself with your partner on a secluded beach in Uluwatu. Almost every Bali honeymoon guide you’ll read will talk about the beaches, so make sure you don’t forget to add a visit to your Bali honeymoon itinerary.

Canggu Beach Honeymoon

Surfer babes this one’s for you! Whether you’ve always dreamt of catching your first wave in Bali or could do it with your eyes closed, Canggu  is the spot with the best waves. Head over to Batu Bolong or Echo Beach and you’ll find surf shops lined up all across the shore. Rent a board, hang ten, and spend a day splashing around in the water. 

Don’t hesitate if you need to take a lesson, the instructors here are amazing!

Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida Honeymoon

There’s something special about walking barefoot in the sand, there’s a change in energy when you ground yourself, have you ever felt that? One of our favorite places is Nusa Penida – it’s an island with all the beaches you’ve seen on Instagram. 

Unlike Bali, Nusa Penida remains untouched, undeveloped, and still a pure beauty. Join us on our day trip tour as we explore the island , eat at local warungs, and spend the day enjoying a slow pace lifestyle. Nusa Penida will always have a special place in everyone’s heart,  and offers a truly unforgettable experience when you visit as part of your honeymoon in Bali. 

Releasing sea turtles in Kuta, Bali

Kuta Beach is pretty similar to all the other beaches in Bali - soft white sand, bright blue waters, amazing surf and incredible sunsets. Let's be honest, visiting pretty much any beach in Bali is like living the dream! 

But what makes Kuta Beach special is The Kuta Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Program - a nonprofit and non-government program that aims to protect sea turtles and their habitat, to raise public awareness regarding sea turtle protection of natural habitats.

They actually give tourists the opportunity to release a baby turtle into the sea for a small fee of 50 baht! The endangered species of sea turtles nesting on Kuta Beach are Olive Ridley turtles. This gives you and your loved one the opportunity to contribute to sea turtle conservation, as well as contribute to your Bali honeymoon itinerary. The program relocates sea turtle eggs laid on Kuta and the surrounding beaches to a central hatchery to keep them safe. And once they're hatched you get to set them free!

The eggs take 45-60 days to develop and hatch naturally. Sea turtle nesting season on Kuta Beach is from March to September, while hatching season is from April to October each year. So April to October is the best time to be part in witnessing the turtle release. Usually the baby sea turtle is released the day after they hatch from the nest. 

This happens on Kuta Beach every day during hatching season. You just need to go to the conservation center for 4.30pm to pay your fee, then release your little dude into the sea at around 5pm. Enjoy!

Balangan Beach 

balangan beach bali

Balangan Beach is one of Bali’s most scenic spots, featuring a gorgeous half-kilometer stretch of golden sand between vegetated limestone cliffs. Locally referred to as Pantai Balangan, there’s a reef just off the coast that creates one of the longest left-hander breaks on the island.

This surfing paradise attracts wave riders from around the world, who enjoy most of the south-western Bukit coastline, together with Balangan’s sister breaks of Dreamland, Impossibles, Padang Padang, Suluban and Uluwatu further south. Even if you're not a surfer, this is a great place to relax and spend the day wandering up and down the beach, catching some rays and enjoying some local cuisine. 

So if you’re looking for that perfect honeymoon getaway for you and your partner… well look no further. A Bali honeymoon will give you that perfect mix of excitement and relaxation. There is something magical about this island and we're excited for you to come and visit. Whether you’re in the process of planning your Bali honeymoon itinerary or are still deciding on the exact locations you want to visit, our Bali honeymoon guide will hopefully give you a good idea of what to expect and the best places to go!

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us as we always love to help our guests see the true beauty of Bali. We also have a handful of Bali Honeymoon Tours so feel free to browse and choose a few experiences that are a fit for you. We look forward to hearing from you!

Day 1-3 of your Bali Honeymoon: Sanur

So, you’ve landed on the Island of the Gods — now what? We suggest easing into your 12-day Bali honeymoon or romantic holiday in the beautiful seaside town of Sanur, just a half-hour drive from the airport.

Often called ‘the Bali of old’, Sanur offers a gentle introduction to this magical island and visitors fall in love with the lazy beach days and charming beachfront restaurants. While known for its low-key vibe, this east-coast gem still has plenty to tempt you off your sun lounger (or not).

Once you’ve settled at your luxury  Sanur accommodation  — there are plenty of boutique hotelts and a handful of big-brand resorts — take a stroll along the beloved promenade that wraps the coastline. Flanked by resorts, cafes, and vibrant traditional  jukung  fishing boats, this it the perfect introduction to Sanur’s five-kilometre stretch of beaches.

If you can’t wait to throw down a towel, Sanur Beach is known for its calm waters (thanks to an offshore reef) which are lovely for a leisurely swim. Craving something a little more action-packed? Along with paddle-boarding and windsurfing, kitesurfing is one of the most popular water sports here, with lessons available for beginners and numerous rental shops along the beach.

Temple enthusiasts will love Pura Blanjong, home to what is believed to be Bali’s oldest historical artifact: Prasasti Blanjong (Blanjong Pillar), circa AD 914. Meanwhile, art-lovers can drop by the Le Mayeur Museum, former home of Brussels-born artist Adrien-Jean  Le Mayeur  de Merpres. 

Oh, and if you’re up in time for a legendary Sanur sunrise, join a sunrise yoga session (there were some free ones happening on the beach when we were there) or head on to the Sanur Morning Market for a taste of local life. If you’re looking forward to a good sleep-in (and who could blame you after all that wedding prep!), try the Sindhu Night Market for delicious and authentic street food instead.

Bali honeymoon heaven starts here.

Don’t miss:

· Book a spa treatment or a yoga session – or both! – at the gorgeous  Koa Shala , a boutique spa with professional therapists, a superb spa menu, and a holistic wellness centre with regular yoga classes. It’s located in the heart of Sanur.

· The Sanur Night Market, located on the town’s main road, offers epic street food at super affordable prices! Don’t miss the  pisang goreng  (a local fried banana dish) for dessert.

· Take a stroll (or two) along the seaside promenade which is dotted with great restaurants and cafes with postcard-ready views of traditional jukung boats and the ocean beyond.

Day 4-6 of your Bali Honeymoon : Ubud

bali honeymoon

It’s time to swap those beach walks for green hues and tropical jungle vistas. Just follow the sounds of gamelan music and scent of incense to Ubud (under an hour’s drive from Sanur), home to lush landscapes, secluded day spas, and an extensive array of luxury villas, some perched over the sacred Ayung River. No Bali honeymoon is complete without Ubud on the itinerary – it is truly magical and unlike anywhere else in the world!

While it’s tempting to laze your days away in the privacy of your luxury villa (seriously, there are  so many  breathtaking accommodation options in Ubud!), the township and region beyond have an incredible array of activities.

Ubud is well-known for its wonderful arts and crafts, with many of the island’s most creative artisans calling this home. Browse the multitude of galleries and boutiques in the bustling town or book yourselves an art tour to discover the best spots to view and buy local masterpieces. The streets are dotted with restaurants and cafes, inviting you to enjoy local food and take a breather from sightseeing. Bali is also renowned for its traditional dance performances and we highly recommend catching one of these in your travels.

bali honeymoon

When you’re ready to escape the buzz of the town centre, a wealth of gems awaits nearby. Take in iconic Ubud views from the Campuhan Ridge Walk: a nine-kilometre track best enjoyed in the relative cool of early morning or timed to catch the sunset. Our recommendation? Follow the signs towards the breathtaking 8th century Pura Gunung Lebah temple for a dose of beautiful Balinese heritage or treat yourselves to a massage at the Karsa Spa, located on the Campuhan Ridge. You’ll also be close to the stunning Saraswati Temple. Dedicated to the Hindu goddess Saraswati, this is one of those ‘see it to believe it’ spots that looks lifted straight from a movie set, with ponds of blooming lotus flowers enhancing the serene experience.

And no trip to Ubud would be complete without wandering the beautiful rice fields and terraces. Our tip? Book a bike tour to learn more about these areas from a local guide — and be sure to factor in a photo op at the Tegalalang Rice Terraces UNESCO site. Stunning.

bali honeymoon

Don’t Miss:

· Goa Gajah (or elephant cave) is a must-see historical site dating back to the 11th century, with entry via the carved mouth of a demon!

· Pampering for two at any of the amazing spas in Ubud. You’ll even find some surrounded by rainforest or overlooking a river valley below.

· Ubud’s Insta-famous Bali jungle swing is a photo op you don’t want to miss. Our tip? Make a day of it and book the swing with a combined tour of attractions including Goa Gajah and the Tegenungan Waterfall.

· If you’re looking for a high-energy honeymoon adventure, try white-water rafting. Ubud is known for it!

· A traditional cooking class is a Bali must-do, and Ubud has countless excellent options to teach you a few new moves you can practise at home.

Day 6-9 of your Bali Honeymoon : Seminyak/Legian

bali honeymoon

Ready for the west coast? Thanks to Bali’s compact size, you’ll be back on the beach in around an hour. Find two of Bali’s most famous stretches of sand, Seminyak and Legian, right next door to one another plus a huge range of gorgeous resorts and retreats, legendary beach clubs, and incredible local shopping. 

Seminyak is a busy neighbourhood that happens to be home to some of Bali’s hippest dining spots and epic nightlife. You’re spoiled for choice here, so why not change it up each night? Many beach clubs are also open during the day, meaning the party vibe never has to end! Some resorts have their own complimentary club, but day rates tend to be very affordable across the board.

bali honeymoon

The surf is excellent off Seminyak Beach, but if that’s not your thing, just relax and take in the scene. With numerous local stalls selling cold drinks and fresh coconuts (you can even rent a sun lounger!), it won’t take long to feel at home. Just make sure you’re beachside for a legendary Seminyak sunset before dinner and drinks at a local restaurant.

Want to take things down a notch? Look to Legian, one of the island’s main tourist destinations but with fewer crowds and a more low-key feel than Seminyak. The beautiful waters here are guaranteed to delight, so why not book a surfing lesson with your loved one? This area has a reef-less seabed, making it ideal if you’re just learning to catch a wave. Ready to shop? Lose a few hours in the Merta Nadi Art Market, one of Legian’s myriad shopping streets which sells everything from knock-off handbags to local handicrafts and authentic souvenirs.

bali honeymoon

· Potato Head is easily one of Bali’s most iconic clubs. Enjoy two infinity pools, daybeds, epic food and drink, and pumping music — all beachfront.

· Pop into Nyaman Gallery for a contemporary mix of Bali-based emerging artists and international names.

· The legendary KU DE TA bar serves world-class food, drinks, and tunes all day: but stick around because the real magic happens after sunset.

· Ground Zero Memorial is a must-see when visiting this region, built in memory of Bali’s 2002 terror attack.

Day 10-12 of your Bali Honeymoon : Jimbaran/Uluwatu

bali honeymoon

Get ready for an unforgettable three days to complete your trip! At the south-western tip of Bali, about half an hour from Seminyak if the traffic is light (Bali’s traffic is unpredictable and at peak times it could be longer!), the dramatic Bukit Peninsula is home to Uluwatu and the beloved Uluwatu Temple (or Pura Luhur Uluwatu). Perched 70 metres above the waves, this clifftop Hindu sea temple is arguably the most enchanting site you’ll visit on your honeymoon to Bali. And it takes on an incredibly magical quality at sunset when the sky is ignited with colours and the rousing Kecak fire dance performance begins in the amphitheatre.

Ocean calling you back? Perfect, as although Uluwatu has long been a magnet for surfers, there’s also plenty of beautiful beaches and hidden coves to discover here. And because nothing says romance quite like a sunset cruise, we highly recommend experiencing this gorgeous region on a private boat. Or perhaps a fishing charter where you can have your freshly caught fish cooked into a simple yet memorable feast.

bali honeymoon

Now, we may have saved the best for last because just north of Uluwatu you’ll find Jimbaran Bay and what many believe is the best beach in Bali (stroll its crescent of clean white sand and you’ll soon see why). The sensational sunsets, relaxed fishing village vibe, and string of seafood  warungs  (food stalls) right on the beach make this a top spot to enjoy your last days on the island. And despite its low-key feel, Jimbaran is home to a handful of luxe resorts and boutique retreats (we love Kayumanis Jimbaran Private Villas & Spa) to cap off your romantic Bali honeymoon.

It’s always hard to say goodbye to this captivating isle — but chances are you’ll be planning your anniversary trip on the plane home!

bali honeymoon

· Had enough of dancing your way through the nights? Yeah, we didn’t think so. Jimbaran’s iconic Rock Bar showcases Indian Ocean views from 14 metres up with entry via AYANA Resort & Spa’s epic cliffside inclinator! A honeymoon highlight if we ever saw one.

· Seek out Suluban Beach (north of Uluwatu Temple), a tiny gem sheltered by limestone cliffs and accessible only by a winding path of steps.

· Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park, or GWK park, is one of Bali’s most iconic landmarks and a great way to see more of the beautiful local culture.

· Break up the sun-drenched days with a duo spa experience in the comfort of your resort.

bali honeymoon trip plan

If you’ve got more time to spend in beautiful Bali, you could easily extend your days and spend longer in any one or all of these destinations. 

Why not venture further afield and jump on over to Lombok, or head up north to Mejanagan or Bali’s eastern region where you’ll find Candidasa and other areas offering well-preserved ancient villages, mysterious temples and beautiful beaches? 

And if you are keen divers, you may be familiar with the USAT  Liberty  shipwreck, a renowned shore-based dive about two hours north of Sanur in Tulamben. Whether you’re a newly certified diver or a complete pro, this site is worth the trip for its ease of accessibility and excellent visibility.

So, there you go! From luxury hotels to cultural charms and gorgeous beaches to world-class dining, use this Bali travel guide as your compass and tweak it to match your style (beach-lovers, extend your time by the golden shores, culture-vultures be sure to stay longer in Ubud), and you can’t go wrong! Any Bali honeymoon that includes these divine locales is bound to be one full of incredible experiences and indelible memories you’ll take with you through life.

Welcome to our complete Bali honeymoon itinerary, 7 days of traveling the Isle of the Gods with your other half. We have to say, we think you’ve made a spectacular decision to make this corner of Southeast Asia the place where you come to mark the big day. It’s a real bucket-list spot that we don’t think you’re going to forget in a hurry…

The island of Bali has all sorts up its sleeve. From evocative Hindu temples by the roaring Indian Ocean to stunning vistas of lush rice paddies on the slopes of smoke-belching volcanos , it’s a land of human curiosities and natural wonders alike. It also happens to be perfect for honeymooners and minimooners on the hunt for something romantic, what with gorgeous sunset lookouts and more five-star hotels than you can shake a gamelan at.

Our Bali honeymoon itinerary, 7 days of loved-up travel on the famous Indonesian island, is a curated package of beaches and immersive destinations. You’ll see macaques in the jungles, get to ride your first surf waves together, and stay in some seriously gorgeous hotels on the white-sand beaches of southern Bali. Let’s begin…

Table of Contents

Day 1 – Canggu

Canggu beach

We think Canggu is a cracking place to begin your honeymoon on the Isle of the Gods. Not that long ago it was a simple fishing village backed by rice paddies. But the last decade has seen it transform into an upscale corner of Bali, with boho hotels by the ocean and loads of vegan and organic cafés. Lots of that has been driven by the digital nomad crowd, but there’s also a good cohort of honeymooners and couples coming Canggu’s way.

Find A Travel Buddy!

The transfer from the airport to Canggu should take just over 40 minutes, but it can take much longer because of the awful Bali traffic. Either way, we’d recommend starting down on the sands of Batu Bolong Beach. It’s the main stretch in Canggu and joins Echo Beach, which has some wedgy surf breaks for intermediates and longboarders that you can sample before breakfast.

Talking of breakfast…there are loads of places to refuel after the flight here. We especially love The Avocado Factory , which serves poke bowls and beautifully presented morning meals – think meticulously carved avo slices with scrambled egg on muffins.

 For the afternoon, head down to Pantai Berawa. It’s the second most popular beach in Canggu and is rarely as bustling as Echo Beach or Batu Bolong, so you should find plenty of space to relax and unwind (and cure the jet lag!).

For sunset, hop in a taxi or rent your own scooter to whizz out to the Tanah Lot Temple. The drive is 20-30 minutes in all. What you’ll see is a stunning Hindu shrine perched on its own craggy rock a stone’s throw off the coast. At the golden hour, it’s a truly romantic sight, as the sun dips and the smells of incense roll across the bay. After that, we’d recommend high tailing it back to Canggu, where edgy beach clubs like Sand Bar offer the perfect spot to glug cocktails and beers until later on.

Day 2 – Seminyak

bali honeymoon trip plan

Seminyak isn’t far from Canggu at all. Just a short transfer down the coast of the island can take you there – you’re looking at about 20 minutes in a taxi in normal traffic. What awaits is perhaps the most upscale corner of the whole of the tourist area that spans the southwest side of Bali…

Honeymooners with a bit of cash to splash should make the most of that by booking into the Oberoi Beach Resort . It’s a gorgeous five-star lodging with lovely Balinese villas up for rent, not to mention a large garden pool lined by sunbeds that face the curling waves of the Indian Ocean. If the budget doesn’t quite push that far, then don’t worry, there are plenty of more affordable options, but you might need to look a few blocks back from the beach.

Either way, once you’ve dropped the bags, we’d recommend going straight for the Potato Head Beach Club. It’s now a legend of the Bali bar scene. It’s open from 12pm every day and has sunbeds strung around a gorgeous infinity pool. There’s a swim-up bar in the middle of it all, staffed by trained mixologists that make a mean Bloody Mary. It’s possible to buy day passes that let you hang out from opening to close here. They should be reserved in advance on the Potato Head website and do incur a minimum charge at the bar.

Later on, you’ll hop over to another of the iconic venues on this chichi side of the Isle of the Gods. Cue KU DE TA . It’s a big name on the nightlife scene in Bali and the perfect place to watch the sunset as the surfers carve up the waves. There’s also a fantastic food menu complete with rich wagyu beef and lobster dumplings.

Day 3 – Ubud


Day three of our ultimate Bali honeymoon itinerary 7 days whisks you away from the frothing Indian Ocean and up to the misty jungles in the heart of south-central Bali. The drive is about an hour or so but can be more in heavy traffic. You’ll want to stay alert though, to watch as the urban sprawl of Kuta and Denpasar fades away and the rice paddies start to take over.

The aim is Ubud . It’s Bali’s cultural and artistic center point. There are some seriously romantic hotels on offer in these parts. The crème-de-la-crème are usually located in the jungles on the outskirts of town, like the incredible Kayon Resort Ubud , where you’ll find private dining decks for couples strewn in rose petals, along with lookout balconies over gushing riverways.

After leaving the bags in your suite, catch a ride into the center of Ubud. It’s a town made up of just two or three main streets. At the top of one, you can find the Ubud Bazaar, a ramshackle medley of stalls selling all sorts of arts and crafts, from batik fabrics to traditional Balinese masks. Next door, you should drop in to see the Saraswati Temple, which is fronted by a beautiful lily pond and rows of gnarled banyan trees. Some say it’s the prettiest on the whole island.

At the far end of the town is the Sacred Monkey Forest. That’s a must see; an ancient set of Hindu-Buddhist temples that are now half in ruins and overtaken by the jungles. Wander around but watch out for the cheeky macaques – they’ll take your camera or wallet without warning!

Day 4 – Lovina


It’s a drive of about two hours from Ubud to Lovina, which sits right up on the distant north coast of the island. However, this isn’t just an A-to-B. There are plenty of awesome things to see along the way, so it’s a good idea to negotiate a price with a driver who doesn’t mind stopping a couple of times en route.

The first place to pull up will be the Leke Leke Waterfall. It’s one of the most gorgeous on the isle, looking like some hidden Shangri-La between two bluffs of fern-covered volcanic rock. It’s 50,000 IDR ($3.50) per person entry, which is more than worth it to share a swim together in the turquoise-tinted splash pool at the bottom.

The temple at Pura Ulun Danu Bratan sits a little further along the road. It’s a revered shrine used by both Hindus and Buddhists, with a stunning location on the side of Lake Bratan between soaring mountains. The photo opportunity beneath the 11-stepped Meru tower out the front is one of the most iconic going, too.

Keep driving north from there and you’ll come to the Gitgit Waterfall. Arguably the most dramatic of all on the island, it clocks up 35 meters in height and sprays over a jungle ledge onto a series of rock terraces. Be careful though, as the waterfall is steeped in myth, and some say any couples who bathe in the water are doomed to break up – not ideal for a honeymoon, eh?

Lovina itself finishes things off. It’s a low-key town with a lovely beach on the Bali Sea. However, the main reason to be here is out in the ocean: Dolphins. And they neatly lead us into Day 4…

Day 4 – Uluwatu


Day 4 begins real early. You’ll have to rise in Lovina before 5am to be able to join one of the regular dolphin-watching tours. They last about 30-45 minutes and take you out to see the swimming pods off the north Bali coast. The best time to spot the majestic sea swimmers is between May and January when the seas are at their calmest.

After that bucket-list experience, it’s time to head back south again. This time it’s a straight 2.5 hours’ ride through the very middle of the island. We think you should arrive sometime around midday or the early afternoon, but again, there are plenty of spots left to check out if you want to break up the ride – the Jatiluwih Rice Terrace and the bathing hot springs at Penatahan Kaja are both roughly on the way.

Your place for the rest of the day is Uluwatu. It’s legendary in the world of surfing for having some of the most epic left-hand point breaks on Earth. You’re best leaving that to the pros. However, there’s a glassy reef break for intermediate surfers at nearby Bingin Beach if you happen to be a surf-hungry couple. Or you can simply go and laze in the cove at Padang Padang – one of our favs on the Bukit Peninsula.

At night, go straight for the Uluwatu Temple . It’s the home of the enthralling Kecak Fire Dance , which takes place each evening at sunset and tells the mystical story of a great battle between the gods from the Hindu Ramayana .

Day 5 – Nusa Dua

Nusa Dua

Nusa Dua is a fantastic place to slow down the pace of your travels. It’s also a great option for capping off our Bali honeymoon itinerary, mainly because it’s known for hosting some of the finest resort hotels this side of the Maldives. Seriously…they are divine. The Luxury Collection Laguna and the beautiful The St. Regis Bali are up there with the best of the bunch – the latter even has its own Zen Garden with swinging hammocks!

Wherever you decide to bed down, you’re going to be on the doorstep of Nusa Dua’s white-sand beaches. They are some of the loveliest on the mainland of Bali because they offer a rare taste of perfect sand and pure turquoise water. The waves and the currents can still be powerful, though, so be cautious when you swim.

A jaunt to the north to see the Waterblow on the Peninsula Island is great for breaking up sunbathing sessions, and you sedulously have to pay a visit to one of the town’s spas. There are loads to pick from, most connected to one of the hotels. We especially like the Kriya Spa at the Hyatt for its al fresco massage baths, and the arabesque-style Mandara Spa. Both of those offer couples’ packages and traditional Balinese treatments .

Day 6 – Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida

The last step on our ultimate Bali honeymoon itinerary means ditching Bali itself altogether. Yep, today you’ll be whizzing across the strait to Nusa Penida. It’s one of the most-photographed isles in the region, an Instagram favorite, and a great place to explore less-trodden beaches and coast forests.

To get there, you’ll need to catch a boat from Sanur Beach. The port is only 25 minutes’ drive north of Nusa Dua, so you should be able to make it in time for the very early ferries. In all, the crossing is just 45 minutes.

As soon as you’re on Nusa Penida itself, there’s no time to waste. This island is riddled with incredible spots and there’s just 24 hours left to pack them in. Truth be told, you’re probably not going to manage to complete the lot, but at least a few of the following should make it onto your itinerary if you’re chasing a touch of romance:

  • Atuh Beach – A eye-watering, white-sand bay framed by a rock arch. Often not busy at all.
  • Kelingking – Also called T-Rex Beach for the way the headland is shaped, this one’s probably the most iconic Instagram frame in all of Indonesia!
  • Toyapakeh – Pull on the snorkels and dive under at Toyapakeh to see blooming coral reefs and even, potentially, manta rays.

You can choose to hang around Nusa Penida to extend our Bali honeymoon itinerary to longer if you like. Alternatively, it should be easy to book a transfer back to the airport in Denpasar that includes the ferry return to Sanur.

Bali Honeymoon: The Complete Guide for Couples in 2024!

Bali Honeymoon: the perfect romantic destination

The island of Bali in Indonesia is one of the world’s most romantic places, and a perfect honeymoon destination. It offers spectacular beaches, jungle forests, volcanoes and ricefields to explore with your partner. But there’s more than nature! Bali has areas with amazing nightlife and many high-end luxurious resorts and 5-star hotels.

We believe Bali is the perfect honeymoon destination! Bali offers amazing beaches and nature to explore, a unique hospitable culture, delicious food and many romantic activities for couples. All of this can be experienced while comfortably staying in luxury accomodation. Bali has an unmatched offering of affordable luxury hotels and resorts - at a fraction of the price you would pay anywhere else in the world. It is a diverse island, with popular tourist areas as well as secluded spots for you and your partner to retreat to.

Tropical Island

Bali is a tropical island in the Indian Ocean, part of the Indonesian archipelago in South-East Asia. The island’s beautiful landscapes are formed by millions of years of volcanic activity, as well as a humid, tropical climate. Rivers have carved majestic valleys through the island. Bordering the wild Indian Ocean on the south and calm Java Sea on the north, a wide variety of beautiful beaches form the border between land and sea.

Tropical Forest with Agung Volcano in the background.

Island of Gods

Bali is known as the Island of Gods. It is the only Hindu island in Indonesia, with a very distinct and unique culture . The island features around 20.000 Hindu temples – some of which are very spectacular and open to visitors. The local culture and traditions are still practised all over the island. When traveling around you will very likely stumble upon ceremonies or parades. The Balinese people are extremely hospitable and friendly , and will welcome curious visitors to witness their traditions.

Luxury & Romance

In Bali, your options as a newlywed couple are almost endless. The island is known for its luxurious hotels , fancy beachclubs and fine dining . It is definitely possible to splurge on fancy accomodation for you and your partner. The most spectacular honeymoon suites do come at a cost. However, in general, Bali is very affordable, and the island is great on any budget. Lovely beach clubs are scattered around the island, especially the south. Fine dining restaurants can be found in the Ubud, Uluwatu and Seminyak regions. Some restaurants offer romantic private dining, in a secluded spot surrounded with candle lights!

Bali regions and map

The island of Bali is larger than most people expect, and has many distinct regions. It takes around 3 hours to drive from north to south or from west to east. Most people combine a few regions during their honeymoon in Bali to get a full taste of what the island has to offer. Check out our 8 ready-made Bali Honeymoon Itineraries for inspiration!

Bali Honeymoon Map

South Bali is the most developed and touristy region on the island. This is where you find the most luxury hotels and nightlife. The south is also famous for its beaches and surf. The airport is conveniently located near the popular tourist spots in South bali. Our guide will help you find the right spots in South Bali for a romantic honeymoon. We love Uluwatu , Seminyak and Canggu . We recommend against spending your honeymoon in Kuta - it’s overrun by mass tourism and there are many more romantic places in Bali. Another option in South Bali is Nusa Dua , an area known for its large luxurious resorts right in front of a beautiful beach.

North Bali is a different world, away from the crowds: spectacular nature with dense jungle, 100-meter high waterfalls, volcanoes, crater lakes, calm beaches, hot springs and more. North Bali is where you will still find very traditional Balinese life. Our articles on Amed and Lovina will help you and your partner to find some romantic secluded spots!

Between the North and the South, in Central Bali, you will find the spectacular jungle town of Ubud . Made famous by the Movie Eat Pray Love, Ubud is our favorite honeymoon destination on the island. Check out our Ubud Honeymoon Guide to learn why!

Some more remote off the beaten path destinations in central bali are the Munduk Region on the slope of a volcanic crater and the serene Sidemen village surrounded by rice fields and mountains. While these are more uncommon destinations for a honeymoon, both have a luxury boutique hotel we would recommend, so check our guides!

We have published honeymoon guides to each of the different regions. Use the filter buttons below to find the perfect destination for you and your partner!

Honeymoon Hotels and Resorts

The options for Bali honeymoon hotels are endless. Bali offers spectacular luxury at reasonable cost , especially compared to locations in the Western hemisphere. A 5-star hotel experience in Bali might cost the same as a 3-star hotel in Australia, Europe, or North America. Add the famous Balinese hospitality , and you can be sure to celebrate your honeymoon in comfort and style!

Not all regions in Bali offer the same amount of luxury honeymoon hotel options - but there are great places to stay all over the island for any budget. Uluwatu and Seminyak are your best bets for luxury beachfront resorts, while the jungle town of Ubud is well known for it’s luxury accomodation overlooking valleys, rivers and ricefields.

Make sure to check our list of the top 20 most luxurious Bali hotels for an unforgettable experience. However, no need to splurge every night, even during a honeymoon! We have composed a list of 10 amazing budget hotels , often with rooms under 100$ per night .

We have listed our 3 absolute favorite luxury hotels below . You can’t go wrong on these. But make sure to check out our regional articles for many more great options (including some more budget-friendly suggestions).

Viceroy Bali (Ubud)

The view from the swimming pool over Bali's forests.

Love it? Check prices now!

The best you can find. The Viceroy Bali targets couples and honeymooners with its upmarket, quiet, and private environment. The hotel's 25 rooms overlook the Petanu River Valley and Mount Batur. Their marble bathrooms with sunken or soaking bathtubs are traditional and magnificent. It also has an outdoor café, a beautiful pool with a swim-up bar, a hillside spa, and a modern gym, which is an excellent place to stay.

One additional reason to stay at the Viceroy: the location is serene with views over the jungle, but it is still very close to Ubud town. It will only take around 5-10 minutes by car to get to Ubud's main street.

Bulgari Resort Bali (Uluwatu)

The Bulgari resort has its own beach at a spectacular spot down from the cliff.

Best resort on the South Bali Cliffs. Designed with a modern Italian look merged with traditional Balinese styles, the Bulgari Resort in Bali offers you a perfect and luxurious honeymoon experience in Uluwatu.

The ocean view villa boasts a spectacular view of the ocean, an open-air living area with a large ensuite bathroom, bathtub, rain shower, private patio, and a plunge pool. With modern facilities to make your stay there a comfortable and experience one. 24 hours butler service.

It also features a spa and fitness service, a boutique to shop for souvenirs, and superb dining options.

The Oberoi Beach Resort (Seminyak)

The Oberoi features a 33-meter beachfront pool right near Seminyak.

Located on Seminyak beach and embraced by fifteen acres of lush gardens, The Oberoi is a luxury sanctuary in the middle of trendy Seminyak. The hotel exudes old-world Balinese style - thatched roofs, manicured tropical gardens with tall palm trees, and a fantastic location right by the beach. Enjoy the beautiful stretch of yellow-sand Seminyak beach and majestic sunset views with all sorts of magical colors from this luxury lodge.

In the Kura Kura restaurant you can enjoy Indonesian and European cuisine overlooking the ocean. While the Oberoi only has one restaurant, less than some of the other high end resorts, in Seminyak there are always plenty of (fine) dining options to choose from. The staff at Oberoi is extraordinarily friendly with genuine attention to your every need and always ready to go out of their way to make sure guests have an amazing holiday.

Best Bali Honeymoon Itineraries

Bali is a large island with many regions. There is a lot to see and do, and the options might be overwhelming. We have created 8 unique Bali honeymoon itineraries which can be a good starting point to plan your perfect Bali honeymoon itinerary . Before diving into the itineraries, there are three completely different ways you can visit Bali:

  • Visit multiple Bali regions: We believe the best way to see Bali, is by spending time in a few different regions. We recommend taking it easy, and staying 3 to 4 nights per region. Traveling can be exhausting, and this allows you to really enjoy the regions you visit.
  • Stay in one place: This is more convenient, especially for couples looking to wind down on their honeymoon after their wedding. You can still discover the island by doing some day trips. Check our single-hotel itinerary suggestion .
  • Combine Bali & other islands: With 17.000 islands, Indonesia has a lot more to offer than just Bali. Scroll further down this article for an overview of other beautiful regions in Indonesia to visit. Why not combine one of our suggested itineraries below with another region of Indonesia?

Bali Honeymoon Planning Tips

  • Slow is fine: the itineraries listen above keep a reasonable pace to get the most out of your stay. If you prefer taking it slower, or have some more days at the beach, we suggest picking an itinerary that is shorter than the actual number of days you are planning to stay. We would not suggest doing these itineraries faster than the suggested speed.
  • Everyone’s budget is different: As we specialize in honeymoon itineraries, we are suggesting quite a few high-end hotels in these itineraries. If you’d like to keep your holiday within budget, check out our list of great Affordable Bali Hotels for couples. In addition, the 14-day Budget Travelers itinerary is written with budget-conscious travelers in mind.
  • A late night arrival into Bali Denpasar Airport, or an early departure on the way back? Spend some time in Seminyak . It is conveniently located less than 30 minutes from the airport, and a great place to relax before or after a long flight.
  • There is more than beaches, explore the inner lands of Bali too! Ubud is an amazing jungle town that cannot be missed on any Bali honeymoon itinerary. Sidemen and Munduk are great regions to escape the crowds.
  • Ideally do not plan your Nusa Penida or Gili Islands visit just before your flight back home. Sometimes the weather can result in ferry cancellations , meaning you might miss your flight.
  • Day Trips are a great way to see remote parts of Bali without hauling your suitcases everywhere. We’ve collected a list of popular day trips that you can take from South Bali, however it is usually easy to find taxi drivers that are willing to take you anywhere on the island - just make sure to agree on a price in advance. Oh, did you know you can even take a day trip to the island of Nusa Penida, or an epic 24-hour organized journey to the Iljen Volcano on the island of Java?

Romantic Activities in Bali

Bali has a wide range of romantic activities to enjoy with your partner. The island is large, so it really depends where you stay! Learn to dive together in Amed , explore Bali’s best beaches and sunsets around Uluwatu , watch Dolphins in Lovina , enjoy fine dining in Seminyak or discover a spectacular jungle together around Ubud . The options are endless…

However if you would force us to choose, these are our favorite romantic activities that make a perfect Bali Honeymoon:

Campuhan Ridge walk is a spectacular but easy romantic walk (30 minutes one-way), taking you past the ancient Gunung Lebah temple and over a ridge overlooking two jungle valleys. The route gives plenty of opportunity to shoot amazing photos of you and your partner - but leaving your camera at home and just enjoying the landscape together is a great option too.

The walk starts close to the town of Ubud (see Google Maps link below). At the end of the ridge you will find some bamboo huts selling refreshing juice and coconuts.

Instead of walking back, you could opt to continue walking straight for another 25 minutes through a local Balinese village until you reach Jungle Fish, a luxury infinity-pool overlooking the jungle.

bali honeymoon trip plan

Kecak Fire Dance (Uluwatu)

Besides the Uluwatu temple, at night a traditional Kecak Fire Dance is performed by the local Balinese population. After exploring the temple, you could stay for this spectacular fire dance show.

It's one of Bali's most popular and iconic art performances and takes place for an hour every day during sunset (from 6PM to 7PM). The dance is truly a sight to behold as it is not accompanied by any musical instruments but the dancers' acapella clap. It is usually sold out, so make sure you book the tickets in advance.

Kelingking Beach is the main attraction on Nusa Penida. The unique shape of a ridge surrounded by the ocean makes it looks like a T-Rex. When you get to the top, you can see a fantastic view of this land that is so beautiful that it would be perfect for your Instagram feeds. It's possible to go down the stairs if you're brave enough. You can hike down, but it can be difficult because the path isn't in the best shape. However, if you manage to walk all the way down to the beach, you'll share a very special moment together. This place is even more spectacular from the ground, with its white sand and crystal clear blue ocean. Usually, there are not many people walking all the way down, you may have the beach to yourself!

Amed has amazing diving spots with spectacular coral reefs and magnificent underwater life. As mentioned earlier in the article, there are famous diving spots such as the US Liberty Shipwreck, The Drop Off and the Japanese Shipwreck. Amed also has affordable dive schools where you can easily obtain your scuba certificates, whether PADI or SSI.

Can you imagine how fun and exciting it would be to learn diving with your significant other? The places you could explore for the rest of your life together and all the coral reefs you could explore under the sea whilst holding each other hands?

Around Amed, you are likely to see several exotic and local underwater animals like the colorful nudibranch, the fascinating clown triggerfish, exotic manta rays, huge turtles and many others.

Istana Spa & Sunset (Uluwatu)

Our favorite sauna in all of Bali. When we were living in Canggu we would sometimes drive the whole 1.5 hour way down to Uluwatu just to enjoy an afternoon of relaxation here. Book this place in advance, you won't regret it.

On Uluwatu cliff overlooking the Indian ocean, this sauna offers cold baths, steam rooms, two sauna's and large swimming pools. As it's facing east, you will be able to enjoy the most spectacular sunset from this place if you book the evening timeslot. Usually after sunset, the staff will light a bonfire, giving this place magical vibes.

bali honeymoon trip plan

Sunset at La Plancha (Seminyak)

Colorful beach bar with a unique vibe. Enjoy the sun setting over the Indian Ocean while a DJ plays some relaxed tunes. Make sure to get here by 5:30 pm to secure a seat for you and your partner for sunset around 6-7PM.

One of the most romantic activities in Bali is watching the sunset. There are many great sunset locations across Bali. Check our overview of The 10 Most Romantic Bali Sunsets for a complete overview. Great spots to watch the sunset are beach clubs, and therefore we have listed our 15 Favorite Beach Clubs in Bali in a separate article.

Another great activity for couples on a honeymoon in Bali is visiting a spa, sauna or hotspring - we love it so much that we wrote this dedicated guide with our favorite spots. You’ll feel so refreshed afterwards!

You don’t need to move from hotel to hotel to see most of Bali. A great way to explore the island without a lot of hassle is by booking one of the many Bali day trips . They normally include pick-up and drop off at your hotel.

Romantic Dining in Bali

In most countries, the Michelin Guide sets the record straight. It decides which restaurants deserve their famous stars. Unfortunately, they not operate in Bali or Indonesia. We believe they should! Bali offers world-class fine dining experiences that can compete with some of the finest Michelin-starred restaurants out there.

Most romantic fine dining restaurants can be found in Ubud and Seminyak . We’ve listed a few below. In Ubud, you can even find some options for romantic private dining surrounded by candlelights in a secluded location overlooking the jungle. The perfect dining experience for couples on their honeymoon!

While Canggu and Uluwatu are not offering the same level of fine dining as Ubud or Seminyak, they offer a wide variety of healthy food and varied international dining options – likely to serve the health-conscious surfers staying in these places. Canggu is where you will likely be served the most “Instagram-worthy” plates of beautifully presented dishes.

Don’t just stick to fancy food! You might like to splurge a little on your honeymoon. But don’t forget to try out the excellent local Balinese and Indonesian dishes . Bali is known for its pork dishes, including Sate Babi (grilled pork skewers) and Babi Guling (spicy dish made of suckling pig). Ayam Betutu is a delicious Balinese meal consisting of chicken and rice. Anywhere across Bali you will find Warungs , local family restaurants serving a wide variety of Indonesian dishes. Don’t know what to choose? Ask for Nasi Campur , a bowl of white rice surrounded by samples of the best dishes they have on offer.

If we had to pick our favorite honeymoon restaurants in Bali , these would be our picks:

The most spectacular fine dining experience you will find in Bali, in a real natural cave! We've been at The Cave and loved it, but its one of the more fancy and expensive fine dining experiences in Bali. You will pay a lot more here than in some of the other fine dining restaurants . Dining in a cave is a very spectacular experience though, and we believe it might be worth splurging on this if you love to experience something very unique.

The Cave is located in an actual natural underground cavern that was only discovered a couple of years ago. They turned the space into a circular restaurant with around 10 tables for two people. This means capacity is very limited, book in advance! As we arrived early, before the start of the dinner the waiters suggested us to explore a bit of the cave beyond the main chamber.

Seven or ten courses will be served (we opted for seven), and between courses they will dim the lights and project a light show on the walls of the cave. The menu is designed by chef Ryan Clift, who worked with famous chefs like Peter Gordon and Emmanuel Renaut. We believe the food was very good and original, but the most memorable thing definitely is the setting in which it is served.

7-Course Set Menu: Roughly 105$ pp (200$ with wine/cocktail pairing).

Arcadia is formerly known as Bridges Restaurant. The venue overlooks the the spectacular bridge crossing at Tjampuhan and has one of the best views of Ubud. If you plan to go here, definitely ask for a table overlooking the valley.

The restaurant offers both a-la-carte and tasting menus. Either are of great quality, but we would recommend trying one of their tasting menus, as they are extremely good value. You can choose your favorite: The Garden (vegetarian), The Pastures (meat), The Sea (fish and seafood) or Plant-Based (vegan) set menu. All of them offer 5 courses. You probably can't go wrong with either of these, but we really loved the seafood one.

The dishes are classic and of high quality. The only critique we could think of is that the food lost a bit of its connection with Bali and Indonesia, as its more inspired by Japanese and Italian cuisine.

5 Course Menu: roughly 40$ (60$ with wine or cocktail pairing).

Sangsaka is a modern Indonesian restaurant offering one of the best tasting menus we have had in Bali, as well as à la carte options. Don't get confused with their website, it does not list the tasting menu but it does exist! We have added the 7-course menu from when we visited below, but the latest online reviews indicate that the menu is now 8 courses.

What we love about Sangsaka is the cozy ambiance (it is a small restaurant), personal attention and unique Indonesian-inspired dishes with a modern twist. Our favorites were the tuna with avocado and the dragonfruit dessert with elderflower. When we were visiting most of the guests were other couples, which is understandable considering the cozy and romantic vibe. It is a bit away from the main tourist area, so if you are staying near the beach in Seminyak we would suggest taking a 5-10 minute taxi ride to get there.

Tasting Menu: roughly 50$ pp.

The Cost of a Bali Honeymoon

A Bali honeymoon can be expensive, especially when frequenting fine dining restaurants, fancy clubs and the best honeymoon suites. However, a Bali honeymoon is possible on almost any budget. No matter what level of luxury you and your partner prefer, you will be guaranteed to get amazing value for money in Bali. We said it before, but luxurious hotels and restaurants cost a fraction of what they cost in most other countries in the world.

A reasonable budget without going overboard would be around 300USD per night, including food, accomodation and activities. This does require some conscious choices. If you would like to experience the best hotels in Bali, you will likely spend more than that on just accomodation. Some hotels, like the Bulgari or Four Seasons, offer their best honeymoon suites at rates well beyond 1000USD per night. Beach Clubs and nightlife can get expensive too - often expecting a minimum spend for their best tables or sunbeds. Don’t let that scare you however: you can really have a honeymoon in Bali on any budget. There are couples who manage to get by with less than 100USD per night!

Some tips to keep the budget within reason:

  • Ubud, Seminyak, Uluwatu and Canggu are known to be more expensive regions, while Nusa Penida, Amed and Lovina are known to be cheaper regions . Combining a luxurious location with a more affordable region might be an option.
  • Fine dining with your partner is amazing. But Bali has amazing street food at extremely low prices. Give it a try!
  • Especially in Canggu and Seminyak: the beachfront hotels are expensive. Look a little further inland . You can still get the beach experience by visiting a beach club for a day!

Indonesia beyond Bali

As we lived in Bali for many years, we had the opportunity to explore many corners of Indonesia. Olivia is originally from North Sumatra , a region famous for orangutans and one the largest volcanic lake in the world. Unfortunately, this region is a bit far from Bali (it requires 2 flights to get there!). However, there are many great regions closer to Bali that we love to recommend for a honeymoon in Indonesia.

Komodo & Flores.

Be aware that Bali is very luxurious and easy to travel compared to the rest of Indonesia. If you plan to enjoy fine dining and splurge on 5-star luxurious hotels , we would recommend staying in Bali.

But if you are an adventurous couple… Indonesia is a beautiful large and diverse archipelago with over 17.000 islands. Some great destinations can be reached by ferry from Bali, while other destinations will require a domestic flight or even multiple flights. Below we list our favorite regions adventurous couples should consider when visiting Indonesia.

Indonesia has more to offer than just Bali!

  • Visit the neighbouring island of Lombok for surf (Kuta), hiking (Rinjani) or party and diving ( Gili Islands ). Take the ferry from Padangbai or take a 30 minute flight from Bali to Praia.
  • Between Bali and Lombok you will find the three Nusa Islands , of which Nusa Penida is the largest and we believe the most interesting. It offers iconic cliffs and beaches to explore. Nusa Lebongan and Nusa Ceningan island are getting more popular too, but are much smaller and don’t offer as stunning landscapes.
  • Climb the Iljen and Bromo volcanoes in East Java. Reachable by short ferry from Gilimanuk in west Bali, or by direct plane from Bali to Surabaya.
  • Explore the cultural heart of Java and visit the world’s largest temple Borobodur in Yogjakarta . Direct flights from Bali to Yogyakarta are available.
  • Say hi to komodo dragons and dive with manta rays around Flores and the Komodo Islands . Take a direct flight to Labuan Bajo on Flores Island. From there you can board a multi-day boat trip to the Komodo Islands, or stay overnight and join any of the day trips to Komodo.
  • See orang-utans in Bukit Lawang and discover Lake Toba, the largest volcanic lake in the world, in North Sumatra . We love this region (Olivia grew up here!). Not many direct flights from Bali to Medan are available, most options will require a transit in Jakarta. Medan is easy to reach with direct flights from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur too.
  • Explore the underwater world in the world-famous Raja Ampat in West Papua. This is said to be one of the world’s best dive sights - but it is really hard to get here! It will involve multiple flights and a ferry.
  • Go off the beaten path and discover the beauty of Sumba Island - great for surf and pristine beaches. Direct flights to Tambolaka are available. Oddly, the world’s most luxurious resort, the Nihi Sumba, can be found on this island.
  • Indonesia’s capital Jakarta is not known as a honeymoon destination. However, many people enter the country here, and there is a lot of history to see, food to enjoy and some luxury hotels to stay at. In addition, it could be a starting point for discovering Java island by train.
  • Bandung is one of the nicer cities in Indonesia. It is very green, nestled against the West Java mountains. Worth visiting if you plan to travel overland from Java to Bali.
  • The island of Wakatobi is a luxurious dive destination near Sulawesi. Guests who stay at the Wakatobi Resort can hop on the complimentary private jet(!) from Bali to fly to the island.

Wanderers of the World

Bali Honeymoon Itinerary: A Very Romantic 2 Weeks in Bali 

Walking hand in hand through emerald green rice terraces. Soaking up the local culture. Waking up to a sunrise worthy of a postcard. Having a relaxing couples massage side by side. Lapping up 4* and 5* luxury (even on a budget). 

These are all the things you can expect from a deliciously romantic 2 weeks in Bali.

Making hearts at sunrise

Bali Honeymoon Itinerary: 2 Weeks in Bali 

This was our exact Bali honeymoon itinerary.  We also tacked on a few days in Singapore before it and a couple of days in Dubai after Bali as well… but more on the full itinerary later! 

For now, let’s focus on the meat of the sandwich: your perfect Bali and Gili Islands 2 week itinerary.

Day 1: Travel to Denpasar

Bali’s one and only airport is Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport, also known as Denpasar International Airport, which can be found in southern Bali, 8 miles south of Denpasar. 

If you’ve travelled to Bali from afar then you’re bound to feel jetlagged, so you don’t want your first stop to be too far from the airport. 

Most recommend heading to Kuta or Seminyak but these places can be loud, expensive and super touristy. Not always what you want for a romantic honeymoon.

Instead, we suggest heading south to Jimbaran, which will take roughly 30 minutes from the airport by taxi. 

In Jimbaran, you will still have plenty of bars, restaurants and pretty beaches to choose from, but with far less hustle and bustle than its neighbouring districts.

We’d also recommend choosing a hotel overlooking Jimbaran Beach such as the InterContinental Bali Resort or Jimbaran Bay Beach Resort & Spa . 

Days 2-4: Jimbaran

Although your couple of days in Jimbaran will mostly be spent recovering from jetlag (likely on the beach or by the hotel pool), there are lots of other amazing things to do in and around Jimbaran. Here’s what we recommend you add to your Bali itinerary.

Jimbaran Beach Sunset & Candlelit Dinner

Jimbaran Beach has some of the best sunsets on the island and many restaurants have capitalised on that by laying out tables and chairs on the beach, so you can enjoy a romantic dinner at sunset and by candlelight once the sun goes down. 

Just watch out for which restaurant you choose as some kitchens are not hygienic. ‘Bali Belly’ is a real thing and definitely not what you want on your honeymoon.

Check TripAdvisor reviews so you know your restaurant choice is a safe one.

Candlelit dinner on Jimbaran beach

GWK Cultural Park

Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park is home to one of Bali’s most iconic landmarks: a towering 120 metre statue of the Hindu God Wisnu atop his mythical eagle mount Garuda.

This is one of the tallest monumental statues in the world, higher than both the Statue of Liberty and Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer.

The park itself has over 60 hectares of grounds, which are home to various statues, temples and gardens. There are also various performances to watch throughout the day such as Kecak Dances.

Note: You’ll be asked to cover your knees with a sarong when visiting the temples (unless you’re already wearing a long skirt, dress or trousers). Discover more temple etiquette tips in this dedicated blog post .

Wisnu statue, GWK Cultural Park

Uluwatu Temple

Uluwatu is easily one of the most famous temples in Bali. 

Perched on top of a steep cliff some 70 metres above the sea, its scenic location (and stunning sunsets) are two of its biggest draws. It’s even named after its location; ulu = top or tip, watu = stone or rock in Balinese.

It’s also a great place to spot Balinese long-tailed monkeys as the small forest surrounding the temple is home to hundreds of them. These monkeys are believed to be the loyal guardians of the temple.

Uluwatu also plays host to an incredible Kecak Fire Dance show every evening at sunset, which we’ll talk about in more detail below – yes, these shows are just that good!

Note: You’ll be asked to cover your knees with a sarong when visiting the temple (unless you’re already wearing a long skirt, dress or trousers). Discover more temple etiquette tips in this dedicated blog post .

Uluwatu Temple gate

There are a myriad of tours that you can join to take you from your hotel to Uluwatu. Here are some great options from Get Your Guide.

Kecak Fire Dance

The Kecak Fire Dance is one of Bali’s most iconic performances where chanting and singing are used in place of gamelan instruments.

And Uluwatu Temple is home to the most famous show as hundreds of people every day watch the dancers from the clifftop amphitheatre.

The dance tells the story of Sri Rama, Prince of Ayodhya Kingdom, who was cast into exile by his father following an evil trick from his stepmother.

Rama’s wife, Sita and brother, Laksamana accompany him but the evil King of Lanka, Rahwana sets out to kidnap Rama’s wife.

The two brothers, along with the Monkey King, Hanuman and his monkey troops, seek to rescue the Princess and reunite the young lovers.

Although there will be moments during the show where you have no idea what’s going on, the interesting chants, roaring fire and spectacular costumes will keep you captivated throughout. 

You may even be lucky to see the Monkey King up close as he is known to randomly run into the audience – just like he did with us.

The only downside of the show is that you’ll be sitting on stone for over an hour, so expect your bum to be sore afterwards!

Watersports Adventure Day at Benoa Bay

Benoa Bay is just 30 minutes from Jimbaran and is a hub for thrilling watersports.

From sea walking and parasailing to banana boat rides and tubing, you’ll have great fun whiling away a few hours together here. Check out these tours from Get Your Guide , which include watersports adventures.

Day 5: Travel to Gili Meno

There are lots of different companies operating fast boats between Bali and the Gili Islands but Blue Water Express is consistently voted one of the best.

If you’ve chosen to stay in Jimbaran or another area in Southern Bali then you’ll want to get the fast boat from Serangan, which is around 30-40 minutes from Jimbaran by car. 

This will take you as far as Gili Trawangan. From there, your hotel may offer a boat transfer service; otherwise you’ll need to arrange your own private boat transfer.

All in all, the journey will take roughly 3 hours from Serangan (not including wait times).

Days 6-9: Gili Meno

Nicknamed ‘the honeymoon island’, Gili Meno is the perfect Gili Island if you’re looking to escape everyday life and do a lot of snorkelling or scuba diving.

But be prepared for it to be silent in the evenings. This is NOT the island to come to if you like to party. 

In fact, you can see both Gili T and Gili Air from different points on Gili Meno, and if you’re walking around at night, you will quickly notice just how many bars and restaurants the other islands have compared to Gili Meno!

Snorkelling and Scuba Diving

The Gili Islands are famous for turtle sightings, so you simply must get into the water at least once during your honeymoon.

There are several popular snorkel spots surrounding the island including Turtle Point in the north east and Coral Garden in the south west. 

As the name suggests, Turtle Point often has turtle sightings. While snorkelling there ourselves, Scott saw two of them (and we had only been in the water for 20 minutes!)

Coral Garden is home to a wreck swarming with corals and fish, as well as the famous underwater statues , which lie opposite a giant sign for the new BASK hotel that’s being built.

BASK Gili Meno Sign

But if you want to increase your chances of seeing turtles and vibrant corals even more, then you’ll have to go deeper and try scuba diving! 

There are two dive schools in Gili Meno: Blue Marlin Dive and Gili Meno Divers .

We personally went with Blue Marlin Dive and we simply cannot fault the entire experience! 

As it was our first time diving, we had a pool session in the morning to get used to the equipment and breathing. 

Once we felt ready and the instructor was happy, they took us out in a small group to the popular diving spot Turtle Heaven… which was just that!

We saw at least six turtles sleeping and swimming to the surface, which were a mixture of Green Sea Turtles and Hawksbill Turtles. 

We also saw thousands of fish and other marine life including red tooth triggerfish, clown fish, striped remora, giant pufferfish, mantis shrimp, sergeant major fish, lionfish, scorpion fish and (my personal favourite) neon damselfish.

It cost us 950,000 Indonesian Rupiah each in total (around £55) and we were in the ocean for 42 minutes, so well worth every penny!

Turtles in Bali

Perhaps surprisingly, the beaches on Gili Meno leave a little to be desired compared with other destinations around the world. 

But there’s one beach in particular that you’ll definitely love! 

The same beach that the Turtle Sanctuary can be found on has fine white sand, crystal clear water and a great view of incoming boats as the port is close by.

Just up from here, you’ll find the Karma Reef Resort , which has views of the most incredible sunrise. The sun glows from behind the mountains of Lombok, the ocean glistens in its wake and it looks like you’ve entered a perfect postcard.

Gili Meno Sunrise

For sunsets, you should head to the north of the island and chill out on the colourful bean bags of Slainte Irish Bar right there on the beach… maybe with a Bintang (local Balinese beer) in hand if you fancy it?

Sunset at Gili Meno

Day 10: Travel to Ubud 

It’s now time to head back to the main island of Bali. This time, you’ll want to catch a fast boat service from Gili T to PadangBai, which takes around 90 minutes.

PadangBai is around 90 minutes from Ubud (depending on traffic), so the full trip from Gili Meno to Ubud should take around 3 hours in total (not including wait times).

Days 11-13: Ubud

Ubud is the cultural heart of Bali. Famed the world over for its serene temples, emerald rice paddies and monkey sightings, it’s an immensely popular place to visit in Bali. Here are our recommendations of what to do while you’re there.

Bali Temple Tour

There are over 20,000 temples in Bali, and although it’s a small island, we wouldn’t recommend visiting more than two or three as it takes a long time to get from A to B due to traffic and winding roads.

During our time in Ubud, we visited Tanah Lot, Ulun Danu Beratan and Taman Ayun. These are some of the most well-known temples in Bali and are all UNESCO World Heritage Sites. However, as you might expect, they are very touristy.

These temples also don’t allow the public to enter any worship areas so you’ll have to look in from the outside instead. This is because Balinese people don’t allow menstruating women to enter their temples (you’ll see large signs near the ticket office of each one saying so). As this is something they can’t police, they simply close off the areas of worship to tourists.

Worshipping in Bali

Jatiluwih Rice Terrace

Jatiluwih is Bali’s oldest and largest rice terrace and it truly is remarkable to see.

There are several different walking routes you can follow depending on how long you have to explore – grab a trail map on your way in.

There’s even a large statue of the Hindu goddess of rice and fertility to see, which has been lovingly crafted from a hessian material.

All the paths are concrete but some have slopes so wheelchair users may need help getting around.

There’s also a restaurant overlooking the terraces, which offers a buffet lunch. If you eat here, make sure you have the black rice dessert laced with coconut – it’s delicious.

Ubud Sacred Monkey Forest

Before heading to Ubud, we had heard all kinds of stories about tourists being attacked or mugged by monkeys. Would this really be the romantic adventure we had been planning?

Although we did see several people lose their bottles of water to the monkeys and another monkey stole tobacco from a bloke’s backpack, we found that if we didn’t sit, run, scream or get too close to the monkeys, then we could observe them peacefully.

And it was genuinely a lot of fun to watch the monkeys!

We saw a group playing in a pond, a three-way grooming session and even a monkey trying to plug up a mini water fountain with leaves! And just take a look at this guy… isn’t he all kinds of laid back cool?

Funny Bali monkey at Ubud Monkey Forest.jpg

It’s worth saying that there was an ominous five minutes when some of the monkeys decided to fight and screech at each other (much to the disconcert of everyone around us) but that was it. 

The monkey forest is just a little way south of Ubud – we walked to it from the centre in about 25 minutes. 

And as long as you do as we did and simply quietly observe the monkeys from a distance, then you should have a great time together!

Bali Monkeys at Ubud Monkey Forest

Traditional Balinese Massage

Just walking through Ubud, you’ll pass dozens of women selling massage time with them. 

As we weren’t sure what to expect, we chose to have a 60 minute traditional Balinese massage in the spa at our hotel instead.

We stayed at the Puri Sebali Resort , and honestly, this massage was one of the best we’ve EVER had – and we’ve had our fair share of massages both at home and abroad including a traditional Hammam massage in Morocco .

Bali’s massage technique uses a combination of soft and firm strokes but, it’s likely to be much firmer compared to what you’re used to. I certainly heard a few of my own bones click and crack under the pressure.

Traditional Balinese Massage in Ubud, Bali

This suited me just fine but Scott had issues with the pressure being put on his Adam’s apple, so do bear that in mind if you’re having a couple’s massage session together.

You’ve likely seen the Bali Swing doing its rounds on Instagram ; it really has turned into an Instagrammer’s paradise in recent years.

The swings themselves are enjoyable although nothing to write home about to be honest. 

But you will be able to get some beautiful photos together as alongside the swings, there are various beds and nests to have a mini photoshoot in.

Just be prepared to wait if you’re visiting at peak times, which seems to be between 11am and 3pm.

Day 14: Travel Home

Alas, it’s time to end your 2 weeks in Bali honeymoon and go back home to reality. I guess those wedding thank yous have to get written some time! 😉

Final Thoughts

Everything you see here was part of our own incredible Bali honeymoon itinerary. 

We have our friends and family to thank as, having lived together for over four years now, we weren’t interested in providing them with a generic wedding gift list full of homewares.

Instead, we asked for contributions to our honeymoon by writing a poem that was included in our invites. Here it is in case you want to nab it for your own invites!

We’ve lived together quite a while with all our pots and pans, and as we don’t need homely gifts, we’ve got another plan! We know it’s not traditional but an awful lot more fun, to have some items on our wedding list to help us catch some sun! So if you’d like to give a gift and send us on our way, a donation to our honeymoon would really make our day! Then while we’re relaxing on the beach, or by the pool so blue, we’ll sit back and know that it’s truly thanks to you!

For our own trip, we partnered with Buy Our Honeymoon to try out their honeymoon gift list service. 

It was a lot of fun to create our list and our guests loved that they could contribute to something specific from our itinerary. 

Putting the list together was easy! We just had to pick a website theme, choose our gift categories, add our items and then send the link out to our family and friends.

Once they’d decided what to gift us, they either clicked ‘Buy this item’ or ‘Contribute to this’ depending on the settings we chose for each item and then paid for it using a secure card transaction or chose to pay later if they preferred to give cash or a cheque on the day. They also had the opportunity to leave a little message if they wanted to.

How to Plan the Perfect Bali Honeymoon (on any Budget)

Choosing a place to spend your honeymoon isn’t always easy. It all depends on what you want to do and whether you’re looking to relax or get out and see some sights. A Bali honeymoon can be either of those things, both of those things or anything in-between. It has amazing beaches which you can relax on all day, classy resorts which you’ll never need to leave and activities to suit all levels of adventure. The landscapes are special (towering volcanoes, emerald rice terraces, stunning beaches and exotic waterfalls) and there are so many romantic hotels, restaurants and bars to hang out in. Basically, Bali has something for everyone and it’s that variety which makes it one of the world’s best honeymoon destinations.

This post contains affiliate links — if you click one and buy something I’ll get a small cut but it won’t cost you any extra. Think of it as helping out your favourite (or maybe 10th favourite) travel blogger!

Chances are, if you’re planning a Bali honeymoon you won’t want to spend all your time indoors because it’s raining. Your best bet is to go during the dry season, which is roughly April to October. We went in April, which is kind of shoulder season (high season is July and August) and the weather was perfect. It was sunny pretty much every day and the crowds weren’t as extreme as they’d be in high season. If you go slightly outside of high season you’ll also get better deals on hotels and resorts, which is great if you’re trying to keep the costs down.

Where to go on your Bali Honeymoon

Where to go on your Bali honeymoon depends greatly on how long you have and what you like doing. If you only have a few days, it’s probably best to go to one place ( Ubud if you’re after nature / culture or a beach resort if that sounds more like you) and maybe do a few day trips from there. You could have a great few days in Ubud – there are lots of romantic restaurants and cafes to hang out in and there is heaps to see close to town, including waterfalls, rice terraces and temples. If you want a bit more adventure you could do a hike up Mount Batur for sunrise (it’s pretty romantic after the initial uphill slog in the dark).

Bali honeymoon -- seeing rice terraces in Bali

If you have longer, I’d suggest staying in a couple of different places during your Bali honeymoon. You could spend a few days at the beach (maybe Seminyak if you want some nightlife / good eating and shopping options) and then a few days in Ubud and or Munduk . Munduk is far quieter than Ubud and there are some cool things to see nearby (more temples, waterfalls and rice terraces basically).

Hiking to waterfalls in Munduk, Bali, Indonesia

Nearby Islands

In my opinion, the best thing about choosing Bali as your honeymoon destination is the amount of other islands nearby – you definitely don’t need to stay on the island of Bali itself. We had two weeks for our Bali honeymoon and spent more than half of it on other islands. Your best bet for that exotic tropical island getaway is a trip to the Gili Islands . The beaches are far better than the ones in Bali itself and it’s such a laid back place. There are no motorised vehicles on any of the three islands and the pace of life is very slow. We spent our days walking around the islands, eating great food and relaxing on beautiful white sand beaches. It was the highlight of our Bali honeymoon and I highly suggest you spend at least a couple of days on one of the islands. You can reach the Gili Islands by fast boat from Bali in a couple of hours.

Gili Islands -- the perfect place to visit on a Bali honeymoon

Other nearby islands that would be great to visit on a honeymoon include Lombok, Flores and the Komodo Islands . Flights from Bali to these places are cheap and fast and they offer up far different experiences to just staying in Bali. A far easier (and cheaper) option is to do a day trip to one of the islands closer to Bali. Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan are full of great beaches and interesting natural sights. You could have a full day exploring one of the islands and be back in your Bali hotel by dinner time!

How to Choose Your Hotels

A key component to any honeymoon is where you choose to stay. You could easily stay in one place the whole time and do day trips, or you could move around a bit and sample more of what Bali has to offer. Luckily there are accommodation options to suit every budget in almost every part of Bali. We use Booking.com to pick our places to stay when travelling and it’s always worked out well. I assume most people on their Bali honeymoon will be splashing out a bit, and if you’re willing to pay $80 – $150 a night you’ll have your pick of some special accommodation. We stayed at a luxurious place surrounded by rice fields in Ubud, a cute little villa style hotel on Gili Trawanagan, an awesome beach-side resort on Gili Meno, a top-end resort in Kuta, Lombok and a stylish hotel with a very photogenic pool area / restaurant in Seminyak.

Chilling out on a Bali honeymoon

We couldn’t have planned our accommodation any better! Of course, being a travel blogger, we were lucky in that we were hosted by hotels for most of our trip. If you’re on a slightly lower budget, you’ll still find some nice places to stay in all of those places. For $20-$30 you’re usually getting a very decent room with a private bathroom, flat-screen TV and air-conditioning. Some of these places will also have relaxing outdoor areas and serve nice breakfasts. You definitely don’t need to splash out to have a romantic Bali honeymoon.

Getting Around

Bali isn’t the most convenient place to get around as there isn’t much of a public transport system. Unless you’re a hardened backpacker you’ll probably end up hiring private drivers to get around. You can rent one for a day for around 500,000 IDR (around $35), which is a pretty good deal considering all the things you can see in a day. We did this in Ubud and saw the Tegalalang Rice Terraces (highly recommended) and a few temples and waterfalls. You can also do group tours or rent scooters and head off on your own (be careful though – Bali isn’t the best place to ride around a scooter if you’re inexperienced).

Eating, Drinking and Shopping

One of the joys of a honeymoon in Bali is the wide variety of food on offer. You can find pretty much any cuisine in the popular spots and most of it seems to be well cooked. You’ll obviously want to try the local food as well – I’ve found that some of the best local food in Bali (and Asia in general) is found at small, cheap restaurants (called warung in Bali / Indonesia). Some of these restaurants have great views over beaches, mountains or rice terraces. There are plenty of drinking options too. From cheap beer by the beach to hip bars and clubs, you’ll find your ideal place to hang out. Beware of drinking spirits in Bali though – people have died due to being served cheap, locally made alcohol masquerading as the proper stuff. I’d steer clear of super cheap cocktails to be safe (I’m more of a beer drinker anyway).

Drinking at the beach in Bali

Bali is a shopper’s paradise and you’ll probably want to bring a few souvenirs home with you. Popular things to buy in Bali include wood carvings, jewellery and clothes. There are some great deals to be had but you’d better bargain as people will often try to overcharge you.

A sample Bali Honeymoon Itinerary

We had our honeymoon in Bali in April 2018 and it couldn’t have been better. We were really happy with how we chose to spend our time and where we chose to stay. So, if you’re looking for a sample itinerary, check ours out and maybe it’ll suit you too!

  • Day 1: Arrive in Seminyak
  • Day 2: Relax in Seminyak, do some shopping, hang out at the beach
  • Day 3: Flight to Lombok, hang out at a beach resort in Kuta
  • Day 4: Relax by the beach
  • Day 5: A day trip to the beaches near Kuta
  • Day 6: Travel to Gili Meno, relax by the beach
  • Day 7: Relax on Gili Meno, walk around the island
  • Day 8: Travel to Gili Trawangan, walk around the island and relax by the beach
  • Day 9: A day trip to Gili Air (walk around the island, eat and drink by the beach)
  • Day 10: Travel to Sanur (Bali) and organise a day trip to Nusa Penida
  • Day 11: Day trip to Nusa Penida, travelling to Ubud afterwards
  • Day 12: Hang out in Ubud, see the Monkey Forest
  • Day 13: A day trip to Tegallalang Rice Terraces + waterfalls and temples
  • Day 14: Fly home (well Gia did, I stayed in Bali for another couple of weeks).

A sunset in Seminyak, Bali

As you can see, we covered quite a lot of ground but still had plenty of time to relax. If you have less time I’d suggest skipping Lombok and heading straight for the Gili Islands. We like to get out and explore places when we travel rather than just hang out at the pool or a beach all day, so if you’re anything like us this kind of itinerary might suit you. If you’re after the quintessential relaxing beach honeymoon though I’d suggest heading straight for the Gili Islands and spending most of your time there. It really is paradise!

Hi! Thanks for the post! My fiancé and I are planning a trip to Bali in September for our honeymoon. Do you think it would still be a good time if we just stayed in one resort for 14 days? I am not sure how I feel about packing everything up and jumping around from place to place. Thanks!

Tuesday 29th of March 2022

Hey Isabella, I think it's a great idea to spend it all in once place -- definitely easier than moving around. Bali is small and you won't have to travel too far for day trips. It might be a good idea to stay somewhere for two weeks and if you're going to the Gilis maybe take some clothes etc and book a cheap room for the night if you feel like staying. Enjoy the trip!

Tuesday 12th of January 2021

Hello, Thank you for your post- so helpfull! i am planning a honeymoon for May 2022- approx 14 days in Bali. So excited!!!

Hello, I loved your article .Its really helpful. Planning for my honey moon in march. Can you highlight a little on the itinery and also recommendations on our stay. It will be a 5-7 day stay. Thank you

Wednesday 22nd of January 2020

For 5 - 7 days I'd probably focus on two areas -- maybe the Gili Islands and Ubud. You could spend three nights on the Gili Islands (try and go straight there if you arrive in Bali early) and the rest in Ubud and maybe do a day trip from there. Enjoy your honeymoon -- let me know how it goes!

Getting after the wedding might involve an idyllic, all-inclusive resort set on the beach without too many logistics in between. Some couples, however, are naturally adventurous and gravitate more towards honeymoon destinations that double as bucket list-worthy vacations. A Bali honeymoon offers the best of both worlds.

With its beautiful beaches, luxury resorts and immersive experiences, Bali offers a bit of everything for well-traveled couples. "Bali effectively has everything you could want to make a perfect honeymoon," says Justin Smith, the president of sustainable travel company The Evolved Traveler . "It has an exotic feel that I think a lot of honeymooners like as they begin their marriage. It gives you the sense that you're really going somewhere. It also has the relaxation aspect and great activities."

The only drawback is the flight. It'll take more than one day to get settled in Indonesia. But the white sand beaches, sunset dinners and honeymoon resorts with private pool villas make a Balinese-style romantic getaway worth your while. Read through our guide to start your Bali honeymoon itinerary for the trip of a lifetime.

Is Bali Good for a Honeymoon?

Pros of a Bali Honeymoon

Simply put, Bali is a paradise-perfect location. The beaches are beautiful and also considered a paradise for surfers and other water sport enthusiasts. Even for novice swimmers, snorkeling or scuba diving classes are offered throughout Bali.

If you're planning a trip through Indonesia, the southwest features stunning Indian Ocean views, while the diverse terrain includes rice paddies, pristine waterfalls and lush monkey forests. Most beach resorts offer spa treatments and private swimming pools (you've seen them on Instagram). There's a bustling nightlife scene too, as Bali is known for its beach clubs and fun oceanfront parties.

Bali is also one of the best honeymoon destinations for budget-conscious travelers. Smith says he puts together Bali honeymoon packages for about $500 to $600 per person, about half of what he typically sees couples pay for other popular locations.

Cons of a Bali Honeymoon

Travel time is extensive to get to Bali, which is a dealbreaker for some. "It is roughly 36 hours from the U.S.," Smith says. "You can't get there with one flight. You're looking at a minimum of two and in most cases two to three flights."

It's also a very ocean-centric honeymoon since water sports and beachfront activities are a common theme. Couples who prefer to be near mountains, open meadows, vineyards or lakes may want to consider going elsewhere. Also, many hotspots are temporarily closed because of the pandemic, so this may be a trip you want to plan for the far-off future.

The Best Times of Year to Go on a Bali Honeymoon for Good Weather

The optimal time to visit Bali is mid-September through May. "After this period, you're dealing with very humid conditions," Smith says. "Like much of Asia in late summer and early fall, you have monsoon conditions."

The mid-September through May period is typically dry, and the temperatures are mild. Think the 80s to the low-90s .

Things to Do During a Bali Honeymoon

Nightlife at Kuta beach

Get Acquainted With Balinese Culture in Ubud

Ubud is a laidback, culture-oriented town. You won't find a hopping nightlife scene here, but you will find plenty to do. There are several Hindu temples to check out, including Gunung Kawi , an 11th-century structure only reachable by descending down 300 steps. Pura Penataran Sasih (Penataran Sasih Temple, also known as Moon Temple) is home to the largest bronze kettle in Southeast Asia, known as the Moon of Pejeng.

About 700 long-tailed macaques call the Ubud Monkey Forest home, and visitors can feed these critters peanuts while discovering the community-managed sanctuary. The Tegallang Rice Terrace and the Ayung River are additional destinations for honeymooners. The latter is a great spot for a cooking class with a local chef. "I like to make [the booking experience] as authentic as possible," Smith says.

Discover Uluwatu

Uluwatu is popular with tourists for its white-sand beaches, but there's enough space to stretch out and relax. In the area, the Uluwatu Temple is a Hindu temple situated on cliffs overlooking the water. Just watch your back if visiting this spot—monkeys are known to swipe people's belongings. Go around sunset if you want to witness a Kecak fire dance, which takes place near the cliffs daily at 6 p.m. Favorite beaches for surfing and lounging include Padang Padang and Thomas Beach. And Jimbaran Bay, a paradise for surfers and seafood lovers, is less than 10 miles away.

Enjoy a Seminyak Getaway

More laidback than Kuta but more high-spirited than Ubud, Seminyak is a popular honeymoon destination and home to many high-end resorts. The west-facing beaches offer gorgeous glimpses of the Indian Ocean and couples can take surf lessons on Seminyak Beach. For a more relaxing experience, couples will head over to the infinity pool at Potato Head Beach Club . Seminyak's nightlife is more refined with jazz bars and R&B options. Ku De Ta , however, is a Seminyak institution.

A day trip to Nusa Lambongan for snorkeling and scuba diving is another popular activity. Nusa Penida Island is another nearby spot for a day trip. It's a picture-perfect island with pristine waters and limestone cliffs.

Party in Kuta

Kuta's vibrant nightlife scene is like a moth light for the party people of the world. "It's very easy to enjoy the nightlife, especially for young couples," Smith says.

Bounty Discotheque is famous for its packed decks and foam parties. Neighboring sister venue Paddy's Pub draws a smaller but still raucous crowd.

As fabulous as the nights are, there's plenty to do during the day as well, from relaxing on the beach to taking a trip to Tanah Lot , a sea temple.

Find the Finer Things at Nusa Dua

This upscale resort area is known for its luxury hotels and meticulously manicured lawns. Much of the fun takes place within the resorts, which boast all-inclusive packages and watersports. Bali Collection is a notable spot for retail therapy. The shopping center has nearly 40 fashion stores and more than a handful of art shops.

Ride the Waves and More in Canggu

Located 90 minutes from Ubud, Canggu was once a hidden gem but has become more mainstream, particularly among surfers. The resort area encompassed by rice paddies has a pair of beaches known for strong surf: Canggu and Echo . Amateurs can take lessons. It also boasts an array of cool cafes and upmarket restaurants, making it a popular location even for those who don't know the difference between a paddleboard and a surfboard.

Explore the Gili Islands

A trio of islands near the coast of northwest Lombok makes up the Gili Islands . It's a respite from civilization—vehicles are not allowed, so people get around by foot, bike or horse-drawn carriage. But the Gili Islands are truly stunning to explore by sea. The colorful coral reefs and abundance of turtles make them a perfect place for scuba diving. Those there at night will also witness a memorable sunset over Mount Agung.

Enjoy the Views in Kintamani

Kintamani boasts gorgeous views and not just of the beach. It's home to Mount Batur , an active volcano and favorite spot for sunrise hikes. You can also see it from above by taking a helicopter tour. Couples looking to wake up later and just relax will also meet their match here. A soak in the Toya Bungkah Hot Spring is said to be a healing experience.

Best Hotels and Resorts in Bali for a Honeymoon

Viceroy Bali

Infinity pools overlook rice fields and a tropical forest at this luxury hotel on the Island of Bali, a favorite choice for Smith's honeymooners. Viceroy Bali also offers couples spa treatments, such as Balinese massages and facials in a tranquil setting. Situated in the heart of Ubud, it's near the monkey forest and Ubud Palace.

Four Seasons Resort: Bali at Jimbaran Bay

Stepping into Bali at Jimbaran Bay feels like setting foot inside a private Bali village. The luxury resort is a sweet retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

What to Pack for a Bali Honeymoon

Women practicing yoga in Uluwatu

Bali is a relaxing honeymoon destination, and leisurewear is the name of the game. "You will never be out of place in casual wear," he says.

Shorts, casual dresses and sandals all fit the bill. You'll also want a couple of bathing suits to mix things up throughout your trip and plenty of sunscreen (after all, sunburns don't go with anything).

Of course, you may want to dress up a touch, particularly for a romantic sunset dinner with your loved one. "If you want to have a nice romantic dinner, maybe pack a nice sundress," suggests Smith. "Or navy cotton pants, short-sleeve shirts and a polo. That's about as dressed up as you're going to get."

Best Time to Visit Bali

Best Time to Visit Bali

The best time for your honeymoon in Bali is during the dry season, which typically spans from April to September. This period offers pleasant weather, sunny skies, and lower chances of rain, creating an ideal setting for romantic getaways . However, there are a few important considerations beyond just the weather:

Peak Tourist Season

Keep in mind that the dry season (April to September ) is also the peak tourist season in Bali. While you’ll enjoy beautiful weather, popular tourist areas can get crowded, and prices for accommodations and activities may be higher.

Balinese Holidays and Festivals

Bali celebrates various cultural and religious festivals throughout the year, which can add a unique dimension to your honeymoon experience. However, research these festivals in advance, as they might impact travel arrangements and availability of services.

Shoulder Seasons

Consider the shoulder seasons of April and September if you prefer a quieter atmosphere with fewer crowds and more affordable rates compared to the peak months of July and August.

Wet Season (October to March)

While the wet season is characterized by occasional rainfall, it can still be a good option for honeymooners, especially if you’re looking for a more budget-friendly trip. Rainfall is usually short-lived and sporadic, with sunny intervals in between. You might also find fewer tourists during this time.

Honeymoon Packages

Many hotels and resorts offer special honeymoon packages that include romantic amenities, spa treatments, and private experiences. Research these offerings to enhance your honeymoon experience.

Activities and Attractions

Depending on your interests, you might want to align your travel dates with specific activities or events in Bali. For example, if you’re interested in surfing, the best time is during the dry season when the waves are more consistent.

Local Customs and Etiquette

Familiarize yourselves with Balinese customs and etiquette, such as appropriate dress codes for visiting temples, as well as cultural norms and practices.

Keep in mind that peak tourist season often comes with higher costs for accommodations and activities. If budget is a consideration, the shoulder season or the wet season might offer more affordable options.

About Honeymooning in Bali

About Honeymooning in Bali

Honeymooning in Bali is a cultural immersion like no other. The island’s rich heritage is woven into every aspect of daily life. Respect for traditions is important, so be sure to dress modestly when visiting temples and participating in local ceremonies. Balinese people are warm and friendly, often greeting you with a smile. Embrace the chance to witness dance performances that tell ancient stories and explore intricate temples adorned with vibrant offerings. Observe the unique arts and crafts scene, from carved woodwork to silver jewelry.

The official currency of Bali is the Indonesian Rupiah (IDR). While credit cards are widely accepted in tourist areas, it’s a good idea to carry some cash, especially when exploring more remote locations or local markets. Currency exchange services are available at airports, banks, and exchange offices. Bargaining is common in markets, so don’t hesitate to negotiate prices with a friendly smile.

Cuisine in Bali

Bali’s cuisine is a journey of flavors. Don’t miss the opportunity to savor traditional Balinese dishes such as Nasi Goreng (fried rice) and Babi Guling (suckling pig). The island’s culinary scene also boasts a blend of international options, ensuring there’s something for every palate. Indulge in a romantic dinner at a beachfront restaurant or explore local warungs (eateries) for a taste of Balinese food. Be sure to try Luwak coffee, one of the world’s most unique and sought-after coffees, made from beans digested by civet cats.

We did a visit to Yangshuo with China Highlights. We really enjoy our visit, our guide, Gary Wei was so friendly and kind. Very good company on the River Li Cruise and on our visit to Guilin and Yangshuo. We did a very fun bike ride to the country side, visit the West Street and to the wonderful show. We really recommend all of this!

Excellent first trip to Lijiang. Our guide Alice was very kind and patient and also very accommodating with last minute changes and itinerary change given one of the places we were supposed to go to was shut for maintenance work. She explained everything to us and also answered our many many random questions!

We reserved a 4-days trip with China Highlights for Guilin and Yangshuo. We normally travel only relying on our own, but this time we decided to apply to a local agency.

We visited Longji rice terraces, Li River cruise, Yangshuo impressions show and Yangshuo county ebike tour, spending 2 nights in Guilin and one in Yangshuo. Our guide Tony did a great job for our Guilin and Yangshuo tour, we would recommend this company.

As compared to another guide I had back in 2019 for Huangshan with another agency, Jack’s services were exemplary. He was patient and flexible to accommodate to our requests. Very knowledgeable, responsible and responsive. Throughout the trip he was always telling us the best angles and spots for nice pictures. Most importantly, he speaks English, hence we are able to communicate comfortably with a mix of Chinese and English.

We reserved a 4-days trip with China Highlights for Guilin and Yangshuo. We normally travel only relying on our own, but this time we decided to apply to a local agency. It may sound pretty expensive, but we valued every moment.

We had Kenny as our guide for Suzhou and she was amazing! We were all very impressed with her attentive service, professionalism and knowledge of the tourist spots and also China in general.She was definitely one of our highlights of our trip!

We travelled to China in September/October to visit a relative who lives in Shanghai. He was too busy to show us the sights of China so we decided to use China Highlights. I am so pleased we did. Carol arranged a trip for us to X'ian and back to Shanghai. It wasn't cheap, but it was well worth it. We caught the bullet train to X'ian.
