When it comes to a romantic getaway in Bali, there’s no better way to spoil your loved one than secreting off to a dreamy luxury villa where the two of you can enjoy a piece of private paradise to yourselves.
Designed especially for honeymooners or romantic escapades, privacy is important when you’re choosing your next Balinese love nest – along with an atmosphere of sheer indulgence.
These gorgeous high end villas not only have their own private pools, but private infinity pools!
Best of all, each of these pools boast stunning views, whether they gaze straight out to the endless expanse of the Indian Ocean, overlook magnificent mountain landscapes, or are surrounded by the verdant beauty of the Balinese countryside.
Note: The prices reflected below are the low season rates, and they exclude tax and service charges unless otherwise stated. Accommodation rates often change with room availability, and low or high seasons. We recommend double checking for the final prices before confirming your booking.
1. Slide down from your private villa to your pool? – Eco Six Bali
A villa with your own private slide straight from your bedroom? Yes, please!
Located in Tampaksiring, you can swim to your heart’s desire all in your own private infinity pool amongst lush greenery. Eco Six Bali is a paradise itself in Bali.
There are 6 bamboo hut villas equipped with modern amenities, creating a “modern jungle” experience!
Each unique villa has its own private pool. You can choose one with the pool connected directly to the master bedroom, one with a slide to the pool from your room, or even a rooftop plunge pool!
It gets better. Your private pool experience will not be complete without a floating breakfast… and Eco Six delivers – even on the rooftop pool!
As this area is in the north of Ubud, you will have the privilege to swim up to a view of the majestic Mount Agung.
However, since this place is very close to nature, you might encounter friends from nature such as frogs and lizards. So don’t be alarmed!
Here, all you need is to focus on enjoying the time of your life with your love!2. A two-story villa nested in the rice paddies for two! – Mango Ubud
A two-story villa concept designed spaciously for you – Mango Ubud wants you to feel as comfortable as possible during your stay here.
Even their one-bedroom villa is a two-storey concept. The ground floor would be the lounging and swimming area while the second floor is your room and bathtub overlooking the paddy fields.
Nestled in between rice terraces, Mango Ubud encapsulates privacy and tranquillity in one place. However, it is also just about 3km away from the centre of Ubud, so you’re not far from all the cafes and shopping too.
But if you are not in the mood to go out, you can choose to dine at their Mango Cafe too, which offers delicious selections.
Additionally, if you want to throw a small ceremony a.k.a a “Minimony” of your wedding, they are happy to cater to your needs – many couples have held small weddings in this unique property too!

Purely surrounded by rice terraces, each of the ten villas at Nau Villa Ubud is home to an infinity pool that has uninterrupted views of the iconic Bali paddy fields.
Unapologetically Balinese with its wooden interior, open concept floor plan, and token outdoor bath tub that can be filled with flowers upon request, a stay at Nau Villa Ubud will give you an authentic experience with a touch (or two) of luxury!
Located about 30 minutes north of the main area of Ubud, you’ll be closer to iconic scenic sights like the ever-so-popular Tegallalang Rice Terraces and Pura Tirta Empul, so you might want to wake up early and beat the crowds for a much more peaceful and romantic visit.
Just about 10 minutes away is their very own restaurant, the beautiful Tis Cafe Ubud, where you can experience some different rice terraces, enjoy delicious Asian fusion cuisine, and begin your journey into Bali’s magnificent cafe scene!

There’s something so peaceful about watching as the paddy fields sway in the wind. Accompanied by the soft chirping of birds, the light howl of the wind, and the warm touch of the sun, a private pool could get no more peaceful than this!
If swimming gets a little too tiring, transfer over to your swinging lounge chair, and get your partner to give you a gentle push while you two enjoy each other’s company. Being in the heart of Canggu means you can also hop out for a quick bite around the several hipster cafes or stroll in between cuddle sessions!
Here at Shore Amora, there are many relaxing and artistic activities that couples can do together. Take part in their pottery or perfume workshop, enjoy “Sip and Paint” sessions, yoga classes, surfing, or even boxing lessons!
You will never run out of things to do with your partner!

As children, the ultimate dream was to build and live in a treehouse. Well, dreams do come true, kids, in the form of Pelangi Treehouse. A gorgeous treehouse style villa, overlooking the classic paddy fields of Ubud awaits your arrival!
While perfect for a romantic getaway , just the two of you, you could even bring your couple friends, it’s a 2-bedroom villa after all!
An all-wooden facade is the perfect setting for a little romance, and being nestled amongst trees and greenery helps to really put your mind at peace. Whether you choose to spend your romantic evenings watching the sunset from the edge of the infinity pool, or cuddled up under the blankets, there’s no rush, no need to be anywhere, and no restlessness.
Don’t forget to organise a classic Bali floating breakfast, so you can enjoy your meal in front of the rice paddies with your sweetheart, and munch on some fresh tropical fruits, naughty sweet pancakes, and other delicious options.

If you venture away from the normal and head to the north west of Bali, you’ll find a secret and serene getaway; because what screams romance more than seclusion, right?

9. Your ultimate villa soulmate – Umana Bali
Previously known as Jumana Bali, Umana Bali is a heaven-like villa, much like a fairytale relationship, requires the perfect alchemy of royal luxury, comfort, ultimate seclusion and privacy for couples and this is exactly what has been mastered at villas here!
If morning dips in a private infinity pool overlooking the spectacular ocean are your thing, we’d like to set you up with the one-bedroom villa at this romantic resort.
And if that’s not enough for you, it’s time to slip into the jet pool right beside the infinity pool – doesn’t it simply set the mood?
How sweet is it to be able to cuddle up in bed with your partner with an unobstructed view of the pool and ocean in the horizon?
And you don’t have to commit to just one spot to get the same gorgeous view. You can choose the daybed right under your private Balinese bale, the sun loungers, or pond.
If you happen to have a bucket list dining destination, the on-site restaurant Ju Ma Na should be on top – few things can be as satisfying as enjoying a delicious meal with scrumptious ocean views. Tip: The best seats for couples are the corner ones (if you prefer staying indoors).
Make this a special occasion by opting for some romantic offerings such as in-villa BBQ dinners, pampering sessions at the spa, or even traditional Balinese cooking class for two.
So doesn’t this villa itself tick all of the romance boxes: private infinity pool, spectacular views, private jet pool, bathtub facing the ocean, lavish outdoor shower…
What more can you possibly ask for?
