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.
While we often think of villas in Bali as enormous mansions sized to entertain multiple guests, there are also plenty of smaller options available.
Designed especially for honeymooners or romantic escapades, a sense of privacy is important when you’re choosing your next Balinese love nest – along with an atmosphere of sheer indulgence.
With that in mind, we’ve chosen 18 gorgeous high end villas which not only have their own private pools, but private infinity pools, which we all know are the most awesome and romantic of all 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.

Showing No. 1 – 10:1. Your ultimate villa soulmate – Banyan Tree Ungasan, Bali
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 the villas at Banyan Tree Ungasan, Bali!
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?

The villas are airy and nature-inspired, built with organic materials such as timbre. The bedrooms are breezy and open directly to the pool deck which overlooks the luxurious ocean views!

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?
Well here’s that bonus – if you are staying for 3 nights, you only need to pay for 2! And how can your stay be any shorter especially if it’s your honeymoon? 😉
