You’re sitting side by side with your loved one, and snuggled into their side as you watch the setting sun paint wide strokes of colour over the beautiful Bali sky.

Wow, you think, look at this beauty! You can almost smell the fragrance of a sunny-side up egg wafting over from the fiery ball before you.
Your stomach trumpets in protest. Dang, if only you had some food on hand to match with the view…

For a  quaint and romantic dinner date, head down to Wantilan Agung. Reverently lit by candles, get seated in the grand hall suitable for Balinese Kings and Queens of old, or by the tropical gardens.

Otherwise, there’s the other (maybe even better) option of having a private gourmet picnic in bed, yes, in a bed by the sea – only in Hotel Tugu Bali.

There’s nothing quite like it, and it’s the stuff out of dreams. Lay in the 18th century antique bed with the ocean as your ‘bedroom’, surrounded by candlelight, and watch the setting sun dye the sky a warm red (the perfect colour for romance).

As you continue with your dinner, you’ll even meet the just awoken moon as it casts a dreamy filter on your date night… It’d be perfect for a proposal, or even to celebrate special occasions like anniversaries!

Oozing history, culture and a special undescribable something, Hotel Tugu’s fascinating ancient vibes will leave you mesmerised and falling in love all over again.

2. Romance gets “sea”rious – Rock Bar Bali at AYANA

SPONSORED

It’s no doubt that at AYANA Resort’s Rock Bar, you’ll get nothing but the best quality. After all, it’s widely known as one of the best sunset viewing spots in Bali, and crowned by CNN as part of “30 of the World’s Best Hotel Bars”.

Does sitting out at an open terrace, with the diminishing sunlight casting a golden glow on your cocktail, sound like the perfect way to spend a romantic evening?

You’ll be surprised at what else Rock Bar has up its sleeve.

That’s right – you thought these views couldn’t get any better, but that was before the bar’s recent expansion.

Villa guests will now get to enjoy breathtaking views of the sunset all around at the new, exclusive Round Deck. Walk through a gorgeous bridge, lit up by little lights in the evening, to a scenic spot that extends several metres out into the sea, perched on a gigantic rock.

Because of the Round Deck’s exclusivity, you’ll get to enjoy a truly intimate, movie-like romantic experience with your loved one.

And if that’s not enough, these views don’t just come alone – both your eyeballs and your tastebuds will be pampered here. Rock Bar’s new Mediterranean menu offers a selection of mouth-watering seafood dishes, created with only the best (hand-picked by the chefs!) deep sea fish and shellfish.

With everything from king prawn, sardine, and swordfish to octopus, sea bass and lobster, we doubt that even the pickiest eater will be able to resist everything.

Good views, good food, and amazing atmosphere – if you ask us what’s the recipe for romance, we think you’ve got it.

And if you don’t already know, Rockbar’s recent expansion with a new dining deck is simply perfect for dinner.

11. The soft charm of East Bali – Lezat Beach Restaurant

11-2-lezatbeachrestaurant-food

And while you’re staring, don’t forget to bite into Lezat’s eclectic menu (not literally of course), with Indonesian, Balinese and Western dishes ready for your pick. Try out some fried calamari and one of the juiciest steaks you’ll ever eat!
