Bali’s intricate culture, beautiful landscapes and beaches lend the island an intrinsically romantic air, and to enjoy the very best from a Balinese honeymoon, sharing your stay between the interior and the beach is undoubtedly the best choice.

As a couple, there are wonderful things to do in Bali, visiting its volcanoes, artist’s villages, myriads of ornate calm temples and, of course, its beaches. 

Bali’s most luxurious and visually stunning hotels are found inland in Ubud, a rarefied and tranquil atmosphere of forest and picturesque sculpted rice terraces, a feature strikingly echoed in the Hanging Gardens Resort, with its sensuously tiered infinity pool mirroring the landscape to great effect. 

Also in the Ubud area, the Ritz-Carlton Mandapa, overlooks the beautiful curves of the rice terraces and the Ayung River, its villas a superb and luxurious location to settle into romantic relaxation, enveloped in your own private Balinese garden, swimming pool, lavish bedroom and living area, with the 24 hour services of services of a butler to cater to the practicalities of indulgence. Within the wider resort, there are dining areas, pool bar, an exquisite spa and a library. Private, out of resort, dining in pretty locations in the countryside is another romantic feature. 

The luxury boutique thatched Balinese village style of the Uma By Como resort is another of Ubud’s serene romantic escapes, blending beautifully into the forested landscape. The lovely suites are set in calming naturalistic gardens, each with their own infinity plunge pool and landscaped courtyard with a tropical garden. Dining can be wholly private within your living area, or taken at either of the two exquisite dining areas serving both European and Indonesian cuisine. The resort also features a swimming pool, a wellness centre, sauna and gym, with guided morning walks an interesting complementary feature. 

Away from the peaceful tranquillity of Ubud’s interior, the beach resorts of Bali also offer some blissful choices for the newlywed and there are a bewildering array of beautiful resorts, both local and internationally branded, such as the Four Seasons, Ayana, Oberoi, Hyatt and Intercontinental. 

On Seminyak Beach, The Legian, is an elegantly exclusive beachfront resort overlooking the Indian Ocean and features a beautiful three tiered infinity pool, lawn, restaurant, bars, gym and wellness centre. The spacious designer suites each come with their own balcony and personal butler services. 

To the north of Seminyak, in Canngu, the Ametis Villa Resort provides wholly private and wonderfully spacious luxury villas, each with a terrace, swimming pool, extravagant living area with beautiful bathroom, bedroom, leisure and dining area and a gourmet kitchen, with the services of a personal butler. The wider resort also features a restaurant, lounge and spa. 

The Belmond Jimbaran Puri Resort sits on one of Bali’s finest beaches, Jimbaran The resort’s deluxe pool villas provide a sophisticated private teak and marble living space with a private garden terrace, swimming pool and butler services, perfect for enjoying tranquil togetherness, when you are away from the beach. The resort has an infinity pool, gardens, two restaurants, spa centre and beachfront terrace.

On the eastern side of island, Sanur beach is host to the stylish Maya Sanur Resort, with three swimming pools, three restaurants, roof garden, beachfront bar, gym and spa. The marble and glass rooms reflect the modernist themes of the adjacent 158 metre lagoon pool feature which is directly accessible from the lower rooms.
