We also have incredible recommendations for the best places to stay in Bali for couples, including romantic honeymoon resorts and private pool villas. Prepare to be swept away by the island’s appeal as we present you with the ultimate guide to crafting your Bali honeymoon.

Best places to stay in Bali for couples

Whether you seek the vibrant energy of beachside towns like Seminyak and Uluwatu, the serene beauty of lush greenery in Ubud, or the cultural richness of traditional villages, Bali has it all. For couples on a 5-day/4-night trip, it is recommended to focus on one or two areas to ensure you enjoy your honeymoon without feeling rushed.

Seminyak, located on Bali’s southern coast, is one of the best places to stay in Bali for couples. The region is well-known for its breathtaking sunsets, exciting nightlife, world-class culinary experiences, and opulent offerings. Seminyak also boasts an array of accommodation options including upscale resorts, boutique hotels, and private pool villas that exude romance and offer utmost privacy.

For those visiting Bali for the first time, Seminyak emerges as an ideal introduction to the island’s captivating allure. When in the area, don’t miss Bali’s Eat Street – this bustling yet charming area showcases a plethora of stylish boutiques, trendy restaurants, and lively bars, making it a hub of activity and excitement.

From here you also have easy access to some of Bali’s iconic landmarks. Seminyak’s central location allows for convenient day trips to nearby destinations, like the spiritual haven of Ubud which is about 1.5hours drive away or the pristine beaches of Uluwatu which sits slightly under an hour away.

Nestled amidst breathtaking cliffs and overlooking the vast Indian Ocean, Uluwatu is truly a paradise for couples in search of romance and tranquillity in Bali. With its natural beauty, intimate atmosphere, and array of water activities, it is undoubtedly one of the best places to stay when on honeymoon in Bali.

Couples can enjoy stunning sunsets and romantic strolls along pristine white sandy beaches. For those seeking adventure, Uluwatu is home to some of the best surf breaks on the island – ride the waves together and share exhilarating experiences with your special one! If you are combining Uluwatu with another destination in Bali, we recommend spending at least two full days to experience everything there is to do, from beach clubs to delightful spa treatments and epic dining venues.

The area also boasts some of Bali’s most luxurious resorts and private villas that provide utmost privacy and seclusion, many of which offer spectacular ocean views and some even direct beach access.

For an unforgettable honeymoon experience, choose to stay in one of Ubud’s many rainforest hotels – surrounded by towering trees, these unique accommodations immerse guests in the tranquillity and raw beauty of Bali’s tropical jungle.

Romantic Honeymoon Resorts and Private Pool Villas in Seminyak

6. A quiet little haven amongst the busy streets of Seminyak – Ayona Villa

There’s nothing better than being able to step away from the crowds and into a little slice of tranquillity. Unfortunately, so often these escapes are so far away from the central areas, and while a detox can be nice, convenience is important!

Ayona Villa is in the heart of Seminyak, and roughly a 5-minute drive away from Batu Belig Beach, there’s an abundance of things to do around. Famous restaurants such as Da Maria are within walking distance, and you’ll find yourself loving how close it is to everything!

12. Experience luxury atop a cliff  – Alila Villas Uluwatu

If there’s one thing we absolutely love doing while on vacation, it is spending time at the pool.

While we’ve always enjoyed big, bustling hotel pools, the infinity pool at Alila Villas Uluwatu left us speechless, it gave us a chance to float over the Indian Ocean. The pool itself hangs on top of a cliff and I can guarantee you that swimming here isn’t a casual affair – you’ll notice it in the highly addictive Instagram pictures.

Straddling the edge of a cliff was even more spectacular at sunset as the tides changed – I recommend you to first enjoy a few drinks at the Sunset Cabana Bar before you drop by the pool for a prolonged swim if you want to catch every colour change the sky has to offer.

What’s more, every villa category here also comes with a private pool too. I have to say that this is one of the most romantic stays we’ve experienced so far.

14. Check into a luxurious sanctuary nestled on a clifftop – Renaissance Uluwatu

While many people think of Uluwatu as the place to go to find wooden shacks and surf camps, it’s also a place of great luxury.

One thing is for sure – you can expect to be fully immersed in peace and quiet during your stay here.

The infinity pool is by far the most spectacular aspect of their resort, blame it on the views it has to offer.

4. Go and explore Bali’s best hidden beaches

While the popular beaches like Canggu, Kuta and Seminyak attract a large number of visitors, there’s a hidden treasure trove of secluded and pristine beaches waiting to be discovered. Venture off the beaten path and you’ll be rewarded with the breathtaking beauty of Bali’s hidden beaches.

These secluded gems offer a tranquil escape from the crowds, with their powdery sands and turquoise waters.

Set off to the untouched shores of Ungasan and lay down your towel at Green Bowl Beach. If you have time, take a 4-hour drive (from South Bali) to West Bali and board a boat to Gili Putih, an isolated island that’s ever changing.

Photo Via leesaleesangeun, hansburhan

Green Bowl Beach

Parking fee: Rp. 10,000 (Approximately USD $0.70)
Location: Ungasan, South Kuta, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia (Coordinates here)
Getting there: Head towards the south of Bali, and to the east of Pandawa Beach. From the carpark head towards the staircase and walk down to the beach.

TripCanvas Tip: The tide can be very high in the morning (it can reach all the way to the bottom of the stairs), hence it’s recommended to visit the beach around noon until 3pm when the tide is low.

Gili Putih Sumberkima.

Address: Sumberkima, Buleleng Regency, Bali 81155, Indonesia (Coordinates here)
Getting there: If you’re coming from South Bali, drive up northwest of the island to Bangsal Harbour. The drive will take approximately 4 hours and this is where you’ll be able to rent a boat for approximately Rp. 400,000 (per boat for 5 persons) (Approximately USD $27). Coordinates of Bangsal Harbour here.

5. Spend the day at a jungle club

Bali’s beach clubs, while popular among tourists and locals alike, can often be crowded and bustling with activity, making them less than ideal for honeymooners seeking a peaceful and intimate setting.

Instead, couples might prefer to seek out more secluded and serene locations. Nestled amidst lush greenery and the serene beauty of Bali’s tropical rainforest, jungle clubs such as Cretya Ubud offer a secluded and romantic ambiance that is perfect for couples seeking privacy and tranquillity.

Surrounded by the sounds of nature and the enchanting beauty of Ubud’s jungle landscape, honeymooners can enjoy a more intimate and peaceful setting, away from the crowds and distractions of the beach club.

Cretya Ubud is a peaceful nature escape inspired by Tegalalang rice terrace. Here, enjoy the delights of a 3-layered swimming pool and daily DJ performance, with mouthwatering drinks and bites on the side.

6. Take a romantic escape to the Nusa islands

Comprising three main islands — Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan — this stunning cluster of landforms exudes a magical charm that is hard to resist.

Photo Via aydindap

Renowned for their breathtaking landscapes, the Nusa Islands boast dramatic cliffs, lush jungles, and pristine beaches that beckon adventurers and nature enthusiasts alike. While day trips to the Nusa Islands are possible, we suggest spending at least one to two nights in one of their romantic ocean view villas.

a. Nusa Penida

A short 30-minute boat ride from Bali, Nusa Penida is the largest of the three Nusa islands. The island is relatively undeveloped and you will find only a limited number of hotels here, meaning privacy is often a given. What sets it apart from its sister islands is the plethora of unspoiled natural attractions and untouched landscapes.
