1. A treehouse villa to fulfill all your childhood dreams, but in comfort: Skai Joglo
As children, the ultimate dream was to build and live in a treehouse. Well, dreams do come true, kids, in the form of Skai Joglo. 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 afterall!
An all-wooden facade is the perfect setting for a little romance, and being nestled amongst trees and greenery help 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.2. Private infinity pool with an ocean view for two – The Chand’s Boutique Villa Batu Belig
If you’ve been dreaming of spending your honeymoon lazing together by your private infinity pool, while looking out into the shimmering ocean… Here’s your dream come true.

3. Escape to the jungle with your lover: Escape in Bali
While Bali is known for being crowded, on a romantic escape you want to have a little quiet time with each other. Just imagine being able to take a nap or lounge on a hammock that’s hanging over the most gorgeous, lush jungle you’ve ever seen.
Escape in Bali is a quaint little wooden hut that’s hidden in the jungles of Bali, on the outskirts of Ubud, in Gianyar. It’s the perfect place to feel like you’ve been stranded in a jungle. Completely made from bamboo, there’s an almost peaceful aspect to it as you connect with nature.
Of course, take the romance one step further as you hop in their outdoor plunge pool, surrounded by endless greenery, and overlooking a gorgeous horizon, the feeling of pure bliss will never leave you during your stay!
4. 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 tranquility. 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!
Convenience aside, the villa itself is absolutely adorable! With a partially outdoor bathtub for a little romantic canoodling, a refreshing swimming pool for when you need to cool off, and a cute swing for lovingly pushing each other on, Ayona Villa is fully equipped for the ultimate romantic experience!
5. Pretend you’re Tarzan and Jane in this romantic jungle escape: Hideout Beehive Eco Bamboo Home
Hideout Bali is one of the most well-known tropical escapes on the island. Famous for their eco friendly bamboo structures, and feelings of complete seclusion, you won’t go wrong by staying in one of their many gorgeous villas.
In particular, Hideout Beehive is the perfect combination of intimacy and rustic authenticity! Some might think that the lack of air con might be a problem in Bali’s humidity, but thankfully it’s located higher up where the weather is colder, and perfect for some late night snuggles.
You’ll absolutely love waking up to the quiet constant flowing of the river beside you, and what’s better, you can even spend your day just relaxing in their stone plunge pool right above the river! Plus, if you love cute little doggos, you’ll adore the gentle ones that they have roaming around the property. Talk about a total immersion in nature!
6. Jungle vibes abound: Adiwana Dara Ayu Villas
Located in Majangan Village about a 30-minutes drive from Ubud, Adiwana Dara Ayu Villas is any traveller’s dream come true. Upon arrival, be ready to be welcomed by beautiful scenes of rice paddies, wild jungle forests, and misty morning views.
In such a quiet place, this is the ultimate spot for a low-key vacation getaway, even if only for a few days before you return to the main neighbourhoods in Bali. So don’t feel too guilty if your time here is spent mostly in your infinity pool, gazing out at the view. Because when it looks like that, you can’t not spend a little time to take it all in!
For a little side of pampering, be sure to draw yourself a calming bath in the sunken stone bathtub of the villa’s outdoor bathroom. Bonus points if you snap a picture of the tub for your Instagram!
If you do feel like being productive one day, you can also take part in the traditional Balinese cooking classes offered by the villa — because really immersing yourself in the culture of the island will bring your stay to a whole new level!
7. Swing in a hammock overlooking lush greenery: Camaya Bamboo House
Nothing is more comforting than lounging your heart away on a hammock overlooking the rice terrace outlined by the view of mountain peaks guarding from afar.
Camaya Bamboo House is a green haven where your wildest romantic dreams come true. This gorgeous villa is entirely made from bamboo and is surrounded by panoramic natural wonders; ranging from rice terrace, rainforest to evergreen hills. Here, you can rest while being completely guarded by mother nature.
Staying a night or two here guarantees you with two bedrooms, a private kitchen and an open shower in the building. But what’s more convenient is that the villa will provide you with a free scooter rental, so you can embark on an adventure to discover Bali and its beautiful surroundings.
If you don’t feel like getting adventurous, relax and enjoy a peaceful stroll amidst the rice fields, lay on your hammock and appreciate the fantastic view, sign up for a yoga or cooking class – your holiday, your choice!
8. Your very own slice of Santorini in Bali: Morabito Art Cliff
We can’t stop obsessing over, Morabito Art Cliff; Bali’s very own version of Santorini. Yes, there’s no need to pay a hefty price for a flight to Greece – all you have to do is head to Bali for a taste of Greece’s famed island!
Laze the day away in a jacuzzi tub facing the sapphire oceans by day, and by night enjoy the cool tropical ocean breeze in the LED-lit tub.
Great for couples who are longing to truly get away, Morabito Art Cliff indulges your senses in every way. And just so you know, they also have accommodation that transports you to Marseille (France), and more!
9. Feast on a floating breakfast and snuggle in a poolside swing – Ini Vie Villa
If you’re looking for the sweetest little hideaway in South Bali for you and your sweetheart, congrats – Ini Vie Villa is all ready to charm you.
Each of Ini Vie’s generous one-bedroom villas have a private pool and a jacuzzi tub, both of which are elevated to new romantic heights with a generous sprinkling of flower petals.
After enjoying a little stint in the poolside swing, why not combine your morning dip in the pool to a royal floating breakfast? Yep, that’s right. At Ini Vie Villa, you can skip breakfast in bed and enjoy the first meal of the day without ever leaving the pool!
Or would you want to try floating on some snacks instead?
Although you’d never believe it, inside the blissful peace and quiet of the lush green property, Ini Vie Villa is just minutes away from the exciting buzz of Seminyak and the hidden gems in Kuta. The villa is also close to some of the most popular beaches in Bali, such as Double Six and Legian, which are 15 minutes away.
With an unbeatable location and a gorgeous design combining seductive romance and playful whimsy, it’s no wonder that couples on honeymoon or on a little romantic break can’t get enough of this hidden gem.
If you’re able to tear yourself away from the pool (and perhaps abandon your own magical unicorn for a moment), Ini Vie Villa also offers in-house guests a 20 percent discount on any of the luxurious treatments available at the Vie Spa.
10. One for the bohemian couples!: Shore Amora Canggu
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 or stroll in between cuddle sessions!
A modern take on the Bali floating breakfast, prepare to have your food served to you on a transparent tray! The illusion of your food floating along the bright blue water with nothing underneath is truly magical.
And we’ve heard whispers about their weekly bohemian hangout markets which take place every Friday at Boheme, the on-site restaurant! Don’t miss on checking it out, they’re packed with treasures and unique souvenirs you could bring back home for friends and family!
11. Wake up to a private view of the paddy fields!: Uma Kakul Sebatu
The rice paddies in Ubud are a sight to behold, they’re calming, expansive, and iconic. Now imagine waking up, stepping out of your room and seeing your own little slice of Bali’s most impressive view, paddy fields! At Uma Kakul Sebatu, not only do you get your own mini lap pool, you get your own version of Tegallalang Rice Terrace to marvel at whatever time of day!
Although located a bit further away from the main town of Ubud (in Tegallalang itself), it’s surrounded by loads of local artisans so you’ll find a truly authentic version of Bali, and be able to use the peace and quiet to fully unwind and relax!
12. Check into an eco-friendly jungle retreat: Villa Awang Awang
Here, what could be more romantic than being in bed together with your soulmate, watching fireflies casting their light over the beautiful jungle view?
As a Shangri-La in the rainforest of Bali, Villa Pererepan (Villa Awang Awang) is set along the Petanu river valley, surrounded by gardens and jungle and offering amazing views, this villa is perfect for nature-loving couples.
What’s more, it’s also an eco-friendly accommodation – almost all the furnishings and materials used in the décor are sustainable and of the highest quality.
And did you know, the design of both the villa and the plunge pool is based on one of nature’s great mysteries – the golden ratio (otherwise also known as the golden section or the golden rectangle)?
It encompasses the harmonic and symmetrical principles of nature itself. Nature expresses the golden ratio through a simple series of whole numbers which you may have heard of – the Fibonacci series.
13. Find art in the city: Taman Sari Bali Villa
If you are an art lover, this villa is the place for you. Its zen and modern furnishings are decorated with hints of contemporary art. This is especially so for its beautiful stone pool, which is decked with stone sculptures that spew water while you enjoy a soothing swim.
Located in the lively Seminyak, you’re basically in the heart of all the latest happenings. Don’t miss nearby local attractions such as the Kasih Ibu Hospital, Randelli Gallery and Kendra Gallery of Contemporary Art.
14. Surf’s up with the best view – Mick’s Place, Bingin Beach (From $100)
Raved about by honeymooners and people traveling in groups, Mick’s Place is the perfect place for a relaxed holiday. Perched on the cliff of Bingin Beach, 7 beautiful Polynesian-style bungalows are positioned for one of the best views of Bali.
Imagine yourself floating in an infinity pool with a Bintang in your hand, overlooking the cliff and watching the surfers go at it with the waves. Or, you can take a 5-minute stroll to Bingin Beach and join in the madness yourself!
Perfect for couples who love the beach and a good surf villa, there are no carpet floors or 100-count thread sheets (some bungalows aren’t equipped with air-conditioning either) – but do expect exceptional service, a cozy, eco-friendly room and all the basic essentials.
Some of these essentials comprise an in-room safe to keep your important documents, a shower (outdoors!!) and bath, towels, mosquito net – and most importantly, a panoramic view of the ocean and surf below.
15. Living life on the edge… – Ubud Padi Villas (From USD $130)
…of a ravine. Sounds dangerous, but at Ubud Padi Villas, it’s more romantic than anything.
Instead of seeing your life flash before your eyes, you’ll be treated to the healing view of paddy fields stretching out towards the horizon.
