Bali is surrounded by water from 90% of the sides, making it a perfect destination of a honeymoon. The Beaches are ultimate, blue waters are regular sites, bekateaches are also famous for surfing. I feel Bali holds the upper hand among some of the best honeymoon destinations as it offers different types of activities so it also provides an option for being exotic along with being adventurous. Additionally, you will find the cost of resorts of the island very affordable compared to other destinations.

Kate Comer – Rolling Along With Kids
“We actually celebrated our wedding, as well as our honeymoon in Bali, as I really cannot think of a better destination to do so. And while our wedding hotel may not have been the most extravagant of our times in Bali, for us it was just the perfect hotel and location for the occasion. So we married at Alila Ubud, a simple, intimate and just all-in-all beautiful resort perched above the Ayung River valley. Where the highlights, for us, included the magnificent balcony views over rainforest canopies, the perfect (award-winning) infinity pool, and just the overall closeness to nature.
As we would wake each morning to troupes of passing monkeys, and other unexpected visits, like a flying lizard and a friendly tree snake. The food at the resort also deserves a mention, and the resort’s infused cocktails were the best I’ve found to date in Bali. And just everything about the resort would have me back in a heartbeat. We 100% chose the right resort. Price wise, superior guest rooms generally start around $200 and they, of course, have wedding and honeymoon packages to choose from.”

The Komaneka at Keramas
“The Komaneka at Keramas resort in Bali is a beautiful hideaway on a black-sand beach that is tranquil, calm, and secluded. It’s not always easy to find that kind of thing in Bali, but this particular beach has plenty of space and almost nobody sunbathing on the sand – it’s more popular with surfers thanks to the huge waves. That said, it’s not a great swimming beach, but it does keep the crowds away.
The Komaneka at Keramas is a wellness-oriented villa resort that currently has 9 pool villas — and is expanding — as well as an Olympic-sized pool, spa, yoga facilities, and a delicious restaurant. I just love their catwalk over the rice fields, delicious floating breakfast, and opulent rooms. Most of all, I loved how romantic it was, and how calm and quiet.”

Udhiana resort in Ubud
“The Udhiana Resort in Ubud, Bali, is a boutique hotel with some of the most spectacular views I’ve ever seen. There’s a gorgeous infinity pool overlooking a lush jungle valley, and the views from the bar and restaurant are equally stunning.
I actually visited the Udhiana Resort with a friend and we both agreed it’s one of the most romantic places we’ve ever been and is perfect for a honeymoon! It’s in a secluded spot a little outside Ubud’s town center and was pretty quiet and relaxing. Every room is actually a private villa with an infinity plunge pool and a deck. Our sliding glass doors opened onto the balcony, and you could see the incredible views without even getting out of bed. The bath also looked out through a large window onto jungle views. There isn’t a spa at the resort, but you can have spa treatments in your villa.
Prices at the Udhiana Resort average around £150 per night, a little higher in high season. I booked my stay several months in advance and paid less.”

The Legian Bali
“The Legian Bali is one of the most luxurious hotels in Bali. It’s beautifully located next to the beach in Seminyak, and from the rooms you have a very nice ocean view and sunset. If you want to make this is a truly romantic experience, you should book one of their private villas with pool.
These are located next to the hotel and offer both privacy and a private butler. Breakfast can be served by the pool, and it’s the perfect start of the day. One of my favorite things with their villa besides the private pool is the outdoor bathtub. Enjoy a romantic bathtub experience with your loved one with full privacy.
It feel like you’re in the jungle, but in reality, you’re within walking distance from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak. The resort also offer spa treatments, yoga sessions, and afternoon tea.

Off The Beaten Path Honeymoon Resorts
Hideout Lightroom in Bali
“If you’re looking for a romantic and relaxing jungle getaway, I can highly recommend you to book a couple of nights at Hideout Lightroom in Bali.
This eco house is completely made out of bamboo and is handmade by the locals and its owners. It’s a unique place to stay that’s tucked away in the countryside of Bali – about 2.5 hour from Seminyak and 1h from Ubud. Here you can really enjoy the rural side of the island with its beautiful lush nature and friendly locals.
If you want to disconnect from everything and just spend some quality time with your loved one, then this is the perfect place. Imagine yourself sipping on your morning coffee and listen to the sound of the flowing river, taking outdoor flower baths and just relax in bed at night while listening to the sound of nature – it’s an experience you’ll never forget.
It’s a romantic and an adventurous experience for those who aren’t extremely afraid of bugs, dogs and cats (the owners have a couple around that they’ve rescued). Just remember that this isn’t a 5-star luxury hotel, it’s a unique and cozy AirBnB rental.
If you want to book this bamboo house you have to do it in advance since it’s extremely popular. It costs from $119, and a 5-night stay during October can cost around $683 – but it all depends on the dates and demand.”

Menjangan Dynasty Resort
“Menjangan Dynasty Resort is a luxury glamping resort on Banyuwedang Bay in northern Bali far away from the crowds. It’s close to Menjangan Island, one of the best snorkeling and diving spots in Bali, and West Bali National Park for hiking. We celebrated our anniversary here but it would be ideal for honeymooners looking for a quiet, relaxing resort.
Our tent was as luxurious as any room we’ve stayed in with a comfortable bed, ensuite, air conditioning, minibar, fast wifi and all the amenities you could need. Our terrace was surrounded by frangipani trees and had comfortable seating and a sea view.
The resort was perfect for relaxing—either on the small but lovely white sand beach with calm sea (on an island where black surf beaches are the norm) or by the stunning infinity pool overlooking the sea. It was very quiet and we usually had the pool to ourselves.
Tents cost from $145 a night or you could splurge on a villa tent with a private infinity pool for $368 a night.
We visited Menjangan Dynasty as part of our off-the-beaten-track Bali road trip.”

When to Visit Bali For Your Honeymoon
Balmy evenings and sultry days, Bali is a tropical haven located 8 degrees south of the equator. To enjoy your honeymoon to the fullest, the dry months between from May to September are considered the best time to visit. Experience comfortably warm days at the sun-bleached beaches without having to worry about sudden rainfall and intolerable humidity.
The period just after the dry season is perfect to get slightly cheaper and easily available accommodations. Moreover, the beaches and tourist attractions are less crowded so you two can enjoy some privacy. Try going in late September, October or April.
What to Pack & Wear On Your Trip
Let me share a pro-tip: Don’t worry about bringing unnecessary luggage since there are plenty of shops in Bali to buy from. Consider buying your beachwear like sunglasses, hats, sarongs, beachwear, flip flops and beach bags at Bali. There are various boutique shops and stalls where you will find pretty and cheap things.
As Bali has a hot and humid weather, it is best to wear loose, cotton-based breathable clothes. While it is acceptable to dress up in swimwear on the beach, make sure you wear a modest attire while visiting temples and other religious landmarks. Don’t forget to grab a pair of flip-flops. If you are bringing your electronics like a tablet, laptop, and phone with you, make sure you have a proper adapter before you plug them in. In Bali, CEE7 power outlets are commonly used.
