2. Secret Beach Walk to La Laguna

Not many tourists to Seminyak and Batu Belig will know about this pleasant romantic stroll along the beach. As you arrive at the Batu Belig Beach car park turn right and walk north along the sand for apx 300 meters and you will see a green timber bridge, take the bridge over the inlet and you arrive at La Laguna Beach Club. A quirky new kid on the block, here you will find a vibrant menu, great cocktails all set within a tropical Spanish setting. Owned by the same group as La Favela in Oberoi and La Plancha on Seminyak Beach, this place has truly unique charm in a fairy tale setting.

3. La Plancha for sunset

A trip to Seminyak just wouldn’t be the same without a visit to the hip café on the sand at La Plancha. This is the beach café that pioneered the colorful beanbags and traditional parasol scene of the Seminyak Beach strip that is now so popular. Situated on the beach between Dhyanapura Street and the 66 Hotel, the name is derived from traditional Spanish cooking “La Plancha” which translates to simple, fresh and non pretentious and perfectly represents this casual and relaxed spot to watch a romantic Balinese sunset with your partner.

4. Dinner at The Plantation Grill

If you’re looking for a little glitz and glamour in a fine dining venue then you can’t go past the Plantation Grill at 66 Hotel by Robert Marchetti. A luxe experience, with shades of Grace Kelly and Humphrey Bogart, you may feel like you’re in a scene from Casablanca where marble finishes, soaring ceilings and massive glass windows provide sublime ocean views. Fine meats from around the world and organic seafood cooked over grills and wood-fired ovens are the specialties here. The Sling Bar at the top of the spiral staircase is an intimate space for partners to enjoy some stunning cocktails.

5. Menjangan Island Snorkeling

If you’re looking for an outdoor activity with a little romance on the side then snorkeling at Menjangan Island is a ‘must do’. The island is just a short 10 minute boat trip from the mainland and is part of the Menjangan National Marine Park. Here you will find some of the best coral reefs in Indonesia amidst clean turquoise waters providing great visibility. It’s no surprise then that this dive location ranks 3rd on Discovery Channel’s list of The World’s 10 Best Spots for Snorkeling. Expect to see some amazing varieties of tropical fish including Nemo, Marlin, Dory, Star fish and Yellow Tang just to name a few.

6. Lunch or Dinner at Mimpi Resort

Even If you don’t decide to go snorkeling at Menjangan Island, you must visit the Mimpi Resort where you can enjoy a romantic lunch or candlelit dinner at the floating restaurant and part of the Bali Barat National Park. The waters here are influenced by ancient hot springs, still active today. There is a fantastic infinity pool overlooking the mangroves and custom built natural stone Jacuzzis offer a warm and invigorating experience with natural health benefits. Limestone pathways wind through lush tropical gardens, the area is lowly populated and all of which is open to the public.

7. Romantic Evening Cruise

There are a number of both private and commercial boat operators providing romantic evening sunset cruises, maybe on one of the larger boats operated by Bali Hai Cruises where you are serenaded by musicians while sipping on a glass of fine champagne or one of the smaller more private operators. Maybe you have a special request for the numbers on board, catering or decor preferences can all be tailored to your liking. For honeymooners who want to enjoy a truly memorable evening with the element of romance high on the agenda, this unique activity is sure to be a hit.

8. Rock Bar Bali

Head past the seafood restaurants of Jimberan Bay and into the foothills of the Bukit Peninsula to the Ayana Resort and you will find the “Wow “factor that is the Rock Bar. The resort is perched atop cliffs, home of Jimbaran’s sunset coastline where you will alight an inclinator that brings you down to the bar delicately nestled on rocky outcrops and right on top of the crashing waves. Now, one of the world’s most iconic cocktail and entertainment venues, the Rock Bar provides a captivating sunset vibe and romantic night time allure for newlyweds.

9. Romantic Couples Spa

Why not indulge and heighten your senses together by pampering yourselves with a couple’s spa, maybe overlooking the Indian Ocean as cool sea breezes whisk across your skin or in tropical gauge in the mountainous region of traditional Ubud. If you’re in the Seminyak area, maybe try the Amala Spa where they provide a special ‘couples’ spa treatment that will take you to Nirvana and back again. There are so many outstanding spa centers in Bali you are spoilt for choice but the best thing is that you don’t have to stay at a resort to enjoy the facilities, most are open to the public.

10. Take A Scenic Bali Helicopter Tour

You may well have been to Bali on more than one occasion but chances are you haven’t seen Bali from your own private helicopter. The excitement alone of going for a joy flight in a helicopter for the first time will be an amazing experience to share with your loved one. Air Bali is a foreign owned and operated helicopter charter company located on the toll road as you head to Sanur from Kuta. Visit an ancient temple, maybe the beautiful Lake Kintamani or what about a secluded beach where you’re the only ones as far as the eye can see. This romantic activity is sure to get the blood flowing and ignite the passion!

Romantic post wedding things to do in Bali

The wedding is over, you had a great time, everything went well and now you are on your honeymoon. What to do next? I know you want to have a lot of chill out time but if you want to combine a bit of romance and adventure together, following are some really romantic places in Bali that you and your partner are going to absolutely love.

I want to say here that these are only a very few options. Bali is a multi layered destination. You can go for adventure, food, culture and romance so what ever you do go out and explore the place as it is really a magical destination. It’s an ideal honeymoon destination, spend a few days exploring the island and you will know what I mean.

1) Git Git Waterfall – this pace is in the northern part of the island, about 12 kms south of the main town Singaraja. This is a famous waterfall and makes for a very good day out indeed. Like most Bali honeymooners you will be probably staying in Seminyak so, organise transport ( if you are staying in one of our managed villas – speak to Cyra and she will be happy to organise this for you)  get up early, and enjoy the very scenic drive. You will pass through the magical rice fields and scenery of Bali, and as you climb up into the mountains, you will get a real sense of what Bali was like 20 years ago. I think the drive is as much of an adventure as the actual waterfalls. Stop along the way, mix it up with the locals, grab a bite to eat and enjoy the honeymoon in Bali.

2) Day Spa at the W Hotel – It really doesn’t matter how hard you partied at your wedding. Both of you deserve to be spoiled and pampered for at least 1 day – go on give it a try as a present to yourselves for being so well behaved at the wedding and indulge at a great day Spa in Seminyak.

It’s got a detox oxygen bar as well as a champagne bar on tap (kind of defeats the purpose really – but you are on your honeymoon so go for it)! There are different packages for you to choose from so if there is a bit of a budget this will allow some room for you to choose. There are literally thousands of day spas in Bali but if you are going to try 1, then this has to be high on the list.

3) The Ubud Money Forest – Located in the hear of Ubud the money forest temple is a fun packed day out. Amble through the streets of Ubud and all the cool cafes, shops and restaurants and finish up with a tour of the temple. OK, I need to point out here that the monkey’s can be quite in-your-face and will tend to take anything off your body ( like sunglasses, GoPros, cameras, phones) that are not securely hidden away. Really, watch out for this as you will have to pay one of the locals to get it back for you (could be a scam actually). But, it’s all part of the memorable honeymoon holiday experience.

Ubud is about a 90 minute drive from Seminyak so this is a full day outing. Also, think about having dinner in Ubud as well there are so many fabulous restaurants all within walking distance of each other.

4) Bikram Yoga Bali – for those of you who have never heard about this type of Yoga, you just have to know that it is probably the most intense type of yoga you will ever do. It’s all done in 38 degree heat in a very hot and sweaty room and is perfect for the post wedding detox – there is a studio in Seminyak. This might not be for everyone, but for those honeymoon couple that want to burn of a few of those calories and keep toned, then this is going to be bliss. It’s a 90 minute class so you have got the rest of the day to feel great and good about yourself for doing this…try it once you have got nothing to loose..except a few extra calories.

5) Rock Bar – for the honeymooners in Bali this place is a must go. Located at the Ayana Resort, jutting out into the ocean is the world famous Rock Bar. Cocktails at sunset followed by a meal, this place is packed with romance and the ideal location for those wanting that perfect honeymoon picture. Be warned get there early as it can get jammed packed so avoid the long lines. If there is really one exotic landmark in Bali that you should visit for sunset drinks, then this is it.

6) Hire a motor bike – some people may say that I’m crazy for writing this considering the amount of bike accidents in Bali. But, if you are really careful and do not mind the insane traffic and road rules, hiring a scooter and getting out of the main tourist areas can be a fun way to spend the day. Get out of Seminyak or Legian and see the real Bali. Stop at all the road side stalls, grab some lunch, takes some great photos, and experience the real Bali. Try taking the road to Ubud, cutting up the centre of the island and head north. The scenery is spectacular. Warning: if you have never driven a scooter before I would personally not use the roads of Bali as a testing ground. This is only for the experienced riders.

Honeymoon In Bali Villas

Honeymoon in Bali Villas

Having your honeymoon in Bali is a great idea but part of the experience is where you are going to be staying. Ideally, you want to be spending your honeymoon in a private villa where you and your bride or groom can spend quality time without being pestered by other guests.. This is why at YOUR BALI WEDDING we are able to organise your entire wedding and then coordinate your accommodation for the length of your honeymoon at a private absolutely gorgeous villa.

We have over 500 luxurious private villas that have all been hand picked for their exclusivity by our wedding co-ordinators. This is just part of the type of service we offer – anything to make your honeymoon much more pleasurable is our aim.

Our villas all come with their own private pool that is fully maintained and cleaned daily. You will also have access to our staff that are on hand 24/7 to cook and clean for you. Basically, everything is taken care of and all you have to do is enjoy those precious moments you have together in Bali.

Having a Villa is so much better than staying in a hotel for your honeymoon. I mean, why would you want to be sharing your honeymoon moments with hundreds of strangers you don’t know. Hotels in Bali are becoming more crowded and the chances of even getting a seat by the pool can be a nightmare. It’s crowded, noisy and very in-your-face. This is NOT how you want to spend a week or two on this tropical island.

A point to note about staying in a villa in Bali is that it can end up being cheaper than a hotel. Some 4 or 5 start hotels in Legian or Seminyak can end up costing you a small fortune if you average it out on a per nightly basis. Staying in your Villa in most cases will end up costing you less and in my opinion you get much better value for your money.

So if you are planning to get married in Bali and want us to do all the planning and organising for you please get in touch with us. BUT if you are having your wedding in Australia and want us to look after your holiday accommodation then please also get in touch with us and we are more than happy to help you find that perfect secluded Villa.
