Additional Tips For Your Bali Honeymoon Packing

There are a few more essential items to keep in mind to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience:

Sun Protection Essentials: Pack high-SPF sunscreen, lip balm with SPF, and after-sun lotion to soothe and moisturise your skin after a day of sun exposure.

Toiletries and Personal Care: Don’t forget your personal care items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, and perfumes to stay fresh and comfortable throughout your honeymoon.

Insect Repellent and Hand Sanitizer: Protect yourself from mosquitoes and germs by packing insect repellent and hand sanitiser. These items are essential for your outdoor activities and maintaining hygiene while exploring Bali’s natural beauty.

Phone-related Accessories: Ensure your phone stays charged and connected by bringing phone-related accessories like a charger and adaptor.

Portable Water Bottle: We recommend bringing a refillable water bottle while you are out on excursions. Many Bali honeymoon hotels, resorts, villas and public places offer filtered water refill stations. In this way, you can avoid buying bottled water and reduce plastic waste.

Local Currency and Payment Options: Carry Indonesian Rupiah for convenience when shopping or dining at local establishments. While credit/debit cards are widely accepted in tourist areas, we advise having cash on hand for smaller purchases or transactions.

Prescription Medication: If you take prescription medication, be sure to bring an adequate supply for the duration of your trip. Pack medications in their original packaging and carry a copy of your prescriptions and a doctor’s note for verification if necessary. Bring along nausea or diarrhoea tablets (Just in case you have stomach discomfort.)

Entertainment and Gadgets: Bring along entertainment options such as books, e-readers, or music players for relaxation during downtime. Many accommodations offer Wi-Fi access. But it’s always good to have offline entertainment options so that you’re not dependent on the internet or other comforts.

Emergency Contact Information: Carry a list of emergency contacts, including local emergency numbers and contact details of your embassy or consulate. Having this information readily available ensures quick access to assistance in case of emergencies.

Items Not To Pack For Your Bali Honeymoon

Warm jumpers and winter coats: Bali doesn’t experience the typical northern winter. So, leave such heavy clothing at home. 

Beach towels: Most hotels and honeymoon resorts in Bali supply beach towels to guests. So, you can avoid them. They end up taking a lot of space in your luggage anyway.
