Why You Should Honeymoon In Bali

Honeymoon // by Zoe Kirby

Bali, with its beautiful beaches and exotic mountain hideaways is a honeymooner’s paradise and a sun-lover’s haven. Relax by the ocean with cocktails in hand for a swoon-worthy beach escape or venture into the lush mountains for a romantic adventure amongst Bali’s most exotic fauna and flora… so many choices!

Soft sands of white – or, on the east and north coasts, volcanic black – make Bali’s coastline so special. Not only is this unique island full of renowned and stunning beaches, some of which are famous surfing hotspots, it also boasts sophisticated bars and restaurants so you can expect both your days and nights to be blissfully happy. And girls, let’s not forget the amazing shopping opportunities so leave home with an empty suitcase because you’re going to fill it with your fabulous buys!

Romance and sunsets go hand in hand and the most spectacular are to be found in Kuta, Jimbaran, Seminyak or Canggu – in fact, anywhere along the western coast where the sun drops ever so slowly into the ocean is perfect for a pre-dinner sunset cocktail to toast your honeymoon.

For a beach holiday with an urban flair, visit Seminyak and Legian, complete with stretches of spectacular beaches but also world-class shopping outlets and hip hangouts. Indulge in some delicious cocktails and enjoy a night out bar hopping along the coastline. The array of restaurants lining Eat Street in Seminyak and along the beachfront offer a huge variety of cuisines and then there’s the beach clubs such as Potato Head, Cocoon and Mosaic where you can lounge around all day and swing to the beat into the night.

Jimbaran is much quieter with many luxurious hotels and villas, a relaxed nightlife and the famous fish markets where you dine with toes in the sand while watching the traditional fishing boats pulling up on the beach. Nusa Dua is also a perfect destination for newlyweds, laden with luxury hotels and lush spas for your relaxation and enjoyment. Spoil yourselves (it is your honeymoon after all!) with an afternoon at one of the many Nusa Dua day spas, the perfect opportunity for a couple’s massage. With its sun-drenched beaches, soft sands and luxury pampering, you’ll find there really is no place you would rather be.

Not only is Bali a beautiful beach destination, it is also home to some of the world’s most spectacular mountain scenery with quaint towns such as the artist enclave of Ubud.

This area is home to lush, verdant valleys of rainforest where gurgling rivers run, and where spiritual mists hang over mountain peaks. Luxury villas and serene spas are everywhere for you and your partner to immerse in and enjoy the peace and tranquillity – so different to the beach areas! Dining options are once again fantastic and there’s enough jazz clubs and bars to make your nights interesting. Bali just might be the perfect place to celebrate your union
