Many young people come to Bali for their honeymoon – some even get married in Bali. If you come to this beautiful tropical island for your romantic getaway, you will need to know what to do and where to stay. One of the best places to stay in is a villa because it affords you all the privacy you need. As well as all the places you need to visit in Bali, your villa can be private and romantic often with a pool right outside – or perhaps inside. Having a villa to stay in gives you lots more space and privacy.
Once you’ve settled your accommodation you will need to organise a few romantic places to go and things to see. Here are just some suggestions to enhance your Bali honeymoon.
- Dine in a cave at a private beach. This can be arranged at Samabe, with a chef to cook your 5-course meal and wait staff to bring it to you in a cave especially set up with dining for two. While you eat you can watch the sunset over the ocean from the cave. The address is Jl Pura Barong – Barong Sawangan, Nusa Dua Seletan 80363, Bali, Indonesia and bookings are required in advance.
- Take photos at the magical gold marigold fields at Desa Beloc. Driving from Bedugul to Kintamani will get you there. The marigold fields are on the side of the road and the photos you take do not incur any fee.
If you thought going to Bali for a holiday was all about surfing or theme parks you haven’t done your research. According to the folks at luxury-villas-bali.net while it is great to book accommodation in one of the luxury holiday villas that are so close to the beach you can go surfing before breakfast, there are also other ways to have fun in Bali – extreme fun. For instance, you could go canyoning.
This is not something you do by yourself. It is important to make a booking for the tour ahead of time and you pay a small deposit by credit card at that time, with the balance due on the day. Canyoning is not only for the guys, there is an easy experience that is suitable for the whole family, so long as the children are over 8 years of age.
Canyoning takes place at Git Git Waterfalls, with 3 different grades from easy through to more difficult or advanced. The easy experience includes jumping off a 4m cliff, 4m abseiling, sliding down a natural slide and floating through natural pools in the river. Children who love the rides and waterslides at water parks should enjoy this more authentic experience.
You don’t need to know how to swim because a wetsuit with flotation vest must be worn. That said, swimming makes the experience more fun and less scary if you are a child, especially. Here are some need to know points if you are interested in having this kind of extreme fun in Bali.
Many travellers without family commitments go to Bali with their friends, looking forward to enjoying the nightlife and entertainment, of which there is plenty. They love to party at a different club each night – or several in one night – only returning to their villas in the wee hours of the morning. Some of the best venues to find music and dancing are in the southern regions of Bali at places like Kuta, Legian, Seminyak and Butik.
Here is a list of popular places to party the night away if you are so inclined: –
- The 61 Legian Entertainment Complex holds 8 clubs and pubs with Sky Club on the roof being a popular choice for many tourists. You can dance the night away, but you will need sustenance and this can be found up on the Sky Club’s rooftop garden lounge with an all you can eat buffet for just 50,000 Rupiahs and free beer that keeps tourists and others coming back.
- A legendary hotspot that schoolies seem to love is Bounty Ship or Bounty Discotheque as it is also known. A disco and dance floor will keep you swaying while the bar and restaurant will ensure you don’t go hungry or thirsty.
- If you are into chic dining with a Middle Eastern restaurant on the top floor and a nightclub underneath go to Jenj in Seminyak. The bar is in the nightclub and serves cocktails and booze.
