Top Ten Romantic Things to Do on Your Bali Honeymoon
Your honeymoon is of course going to be about you and your partner spending quality time relaxing and celebrating the start of your married life together. Once you’ve arrived at your Bali honeymoon villa, and are soaking up the sun poolside, sipping on your favourite drinks and enjoying the friendly and efficient service of the staff it may be hard to leave. As part of your honeymoon package to Bali there’s so much to do and see. We highly recommend that you head out and explore a little as well. In no particular, order, here’s a list of our top ten romantic things to enjoy as a honeymooning couple.
Romantic Candle Lit Cave Dining
A candle lit dinner on a balmy tropical evening is romantic. Take it to the next level with an unbeatable cave setting on a private beach at the Samaba, Nusa Dua. This is a dining experience that you’ll never forget as a chef serves up a delectable 5 course meal. Watch the sunset to the accompanying sounds of the waves gently rushing on the beach, before the candle light setting enhances the romantic mood.
Be Enchanted by the Magical Atmosphere of a Waterfall
Visiting some of the spectacular inland scenery of Bali should definitely be on your list as a part of your Bali Honeymoon package. The waterfalls at Tengenungan, a village 5km south east of Ubud offer visitors the opportunity to enjoy a romantic walk through the jungle before bathing in the cool waters of the pools below impressive waterfalls. Here you’ll find the stunning scenery and magical atmosphere of exotic tropical paradise that you may have thought only possible in a dream. A nearby temple and pool for bathing make this and ideal romantic excursion.
Stunning Cliff Top Sunsets at El Kabron
After a relaxing morning and lunch at your honeymoon villa in Bali, enjoy a trip to the stunning top El Kabron Spanish restaurant, and cliff club. Think of this as a beach club on the cliff tops. The restaurant serves up great tasting Spanish fare, and sofas and sun loungers surround the swimming pool. A cantilevered deck from the cliff face offers seating and unbeatable views of the ocean and famous surf spots of the Bukit Peninsula. The views are stunning at any time of day, but it’s sunset for which El Kabron is rightly famous. Be mesmerised by the changing palate of warm yellows and oranges as the sun slowly dips below the ocean horizon.

Experience Ancient Temples and Traditional Culture at Uluwatu
The cliff top setting of Uluwatu temple is truly remarkable; an ancient temple perched high on the cliffs, waves crash far below. There has been a temple here for centuries, where locals make offerings to protect the island from any evil spirits who may try to approach from the sea. Whilst there, make sure to also protect your own belongings from the troop of grey monkeys who live in the temple grounds – they may be cute but they also like to grab any sunglasses and hats you may be wearing, so don’t get too friendly with these locals! Whilst at Uluwatu, experience the wonder of the traditional Cecak Dance. This fire dance, performed by an all male cast combines dance with singing and body percussion for a truly mesmerising spectacle. Position yourself in the auditorium so that you can watch the dance with the sun setting behind the temple for an evening you won’t forget.
Horse Riding at Tamblingan Lake
The sublime Tamblingan lake is situated in Bulengeng Regency. Expert guides and well trained horses mean that this is the perfect romantic trip for honeymooners, if you’re experienced riders or have never been on a horse before. Ride through unspoilt natural beauty and discover rainforest, local villages and views of the lake and surrounding countryside. As you ride, you’ll encounter exotic birds and wildlife and will be discovering a completely different side of Bali in this highland region.
Indulge in Relaxing and Rejuvenating Spa Treatments
Spas are found in all of our Bali honeymoon resorts, and complimentary treatments are included in our Bali honeymoon packages. However, the island boasts some of truly outstanding day spas also, so why not spend some time at the Bulgari Spa, where the breezy cliff top location will impress you just as much as the treatments. Experience locally crafted specials at the Maya Ubud, or experience the relaxing wonders of a four-handed massage at Jari Menari, who are located in Seminyak and Nusa Dua.
Start your new life together with a new wardrobe. Bali is famed for the quality, and quantity of designer boutique shops. Build a bespoke wardrobe of unique pieces that will keep you looking stylish from breakfast right through until cocktail hour on those balmy tropical nights. The village of Celuk, near Ubud, is the centre of silver production and jewellery design. A unique piece, bought together is the perfect tribute to your honeymoon. Fine, intricate wood carvings and artworks can also be found, and represent true craftsmanship.
Get Wet and Wild
If you finally get tired of relaxing in luxury under the tropical sun and are feeling adventurous, why not get wet and wild together? Bali is a watersports enthusiast’s heaven. Take a surf lesson together at any of the numerous surf beaches around the island – if it’s your first time the beach breaks of Seminyak and Canggu present the perfect option. The warm waters, coral reefs and rich marine life attracts scuba divers to Bali from around the world, so why not explore a new aquatic world together. Of course, if you don’t like the idea of being underwater, snorkelling is a great way to experience the wonders of the sea. If you want to get the adrenaline flowing, a visit to the Bali Wakeboarding Park is a great way to spend the day.
Tour Villages and Rice Paddies
While our honeymoon packages to Bali focus on making sure that you stay in the upmost luxury with the best possible service, one of the reasons we love Bali so much is the warmth and hospitality of the local people, who continue a traditional culture largely unchanged for hundreds of years. The tranquilly of rural Bali where the lush greens of rice paddies merge into those of forests and jungle has a calming and inspiring impact, encouraging one to relax and reflect. There are numerous ways to experience this side of Bali – gentle cycle rides, tours in classic cars, or if you’re more adventurous motorbike and quad bike tours will take you deep into the countryside.
Sensational Sunrises from a Volcano Summit
It takes a bit of effort to get there, but watching a sunrise from the summit of one of Bali’s volcanoes is a beautiful and romantic experience to share with your loved one. Mount Agung is both Bali’s highest and most sacred mountain. After a night-time trek, you’ll be rewarded with views across Bali, to the neighbouring island of Lombok. Any aches in your muscles will soon vanish, but the memory of this special moment together is sure to last a lifetime.
The most important thing about your Bali honeymoon is that you get to spend time together as a newly married couple. Our complete honeymoon packages take care of everything for you and are full of inclusions to make sure that your stay is everything you dreamed of and more. If you’re inspired by what you’ve read here, or are interested in other activities to share together, we’d love to help. Your happiness is our goal.
