Top Reasons Why Bali is Famous for Honeymoons

1. Romantic Settings

Bali is like a dreamy paradise. When you step foot in Bali, you feel the romance in the air due to Bali’s natural beauty.

Picturesque Beaches: Bali’s beaches have stunning sunsets. They compel you to leave everything aside and marvel at the sun gradually dipping into the waters amidst the orange sky. But this is just one facet. The beaches offer you enough fun and excitement with snorkelling, surfing, beachside dining, and cultural shows. 

Green Jungles and Quiet Rice Fields: Bali’s lush forests and calm rice fields are peaceful except for the melodious sounds of exotic birds and rustling of the leaves in the breeze. The setting is perfect for intimate walks, stolen glances, and romantic photos. As you meander further, you’ll discover waterfalls. The sounds of the falling water are soul-soothing. Bali’s greenery essentially lets you unwind in each other’s company and connect better. 

Majestic Volcanoes: Inherently, there’s nothing romantic about volcanoes. But, Bali’s volcanoes spin romance of a different kind. They make you feel wondrous as you watch the sunrise from the summit of Mount Batur or take a stroll around the base of Mount Agung. You essentially experience the shared thrill of watching something extraordinary with your loved one. 

2. Luxurious Honeymoon Accommodations

While you honeymoon in Bali you can stay in a luxury honeymoon resort, hotel or villa offering you a mix of lavish comfort and Balinese charm. These indulgent havens are strategically located in breathtaking settings. You can choose to stay in one that’s atop ocean cliffs, in the middle of rice fields, or within jungles. All these locations are paradises by themselves.

Many of these resorts have private honeymoon villas and suites. They are perfect for couples seeking intimate luxury. These spaces are decorated with exquisite Balinese artwork, sculptures, and wood carvings. Inside, you’ll find cosy sofas, stylish furniture, and elegant touches. 

Many of these accommodations feature private pools, infinity pools, exclusive butler services, personalised concierge assistance, and tailored experiences that cater to your every whim.

The allure of a private pool adds to the luxury. These secluded pools are often surrounded by lush gardens or stunning views. You can relax by the pool with your partner, enjoy drinks and soak up the sun or gaze at the stars, all in the cosy privacy.

Luxury resorts also give you a taste of top-notch amenities like private Yoga sessions, a fitness centre, a spa, Balinese massages, and Indonesian cooking classes. Many of them offer immersive cultural outings, personalised guided tours, and helicopter tours. These experiences add exclusivity to your luxury travel experience.

Ubud’s honeymoon resorts and villas cater to honeymooners seeking indulgence and privacy. These upscale retreats are perched atop verdant hillsides and within serene settings. They offer a unique fusion of elegant room decor, sophisticated amenities, attentive service, romantic dining, and immersive bespoke experiences amidst Bali’s enchanting surroundings.
