Where to Honeymoon in Bali: 7 Best Destinations & Places to Stay
If you see a jaw-dropping photo of a private villa’s infinity pool over a remote jungle and someone doing a yoga pose – it’s probably Bali. Indonesia is no longer a best-kept secret. Couples and solo travelers have been flocking to the destination for yoga retreats, meditation, spas, adventure, and more. While you may have heard that Bali has lost its essence, we’re here to let you know it still has the magic, and can easily be your dream honeymoon destination. Below we cover all the best places to honeymoon in Bali, as well as some of our favorite must-see honeymoon destinations in the country.
For Relaxation and Inner Peace – Ubud
Bali, and Ubud especially, is no longer a secret after Eat, Pray, Love. But if you plan it right you will be able to find your own magic in this place. Balinese life is based on spirituality, and the art of gratitude. Both are believed to purify and reconnect us to the divine energy within. Simply being present in a culture and place that values these energies will revive you and bring you so much inner peace after all your wedding celebrations.
Still can’t decide the best place to honeymoon in Bali? Imagine mornings doing yoga together overlooking the rice terraces, eating a delicious healthy breakfast, and relaxing after your adventures to waterfalls by getting another massage. You will never want to leave!
For Luxury and Upscale Getaway – Uluwatu
Cliffside resorts that are nothing less than 5-star, incredible beach coves that are nice enough to surf, and sunsets to die for, Uluwatu could just be our favorite honeymoon spot in Bali. Uluwatu is a popular day trip to visit for stunning beaches, clifftop scenery, and Uluwatu temple. Really want to splurge? Check out the villas at Alila Villas Uluwatu, and you will see why it is one of the best places to honeymoon in Bali.
To get totally disconnected – Gili Islands + Lombok
If you’re the type of couple that dreams of spending all day in the water swimming and snorkeling, exploring on all the little beaches of an island by foot or bike, staying away from any major city amenities, then Gili Islands may be the best place to honeymoon in Bali for you. This spot is perfect for couples who want to get away from tourists, and want to simply appreciate the nature that surrounds them without too many fancy extras.
You’ve got your engagement photos, you’re waiting on your wedding photos, and your honeymoon should be no exception for a chance to get incredible photo souvenirs.
