Indulge in a floating spread of your favourite brunch foods at RIMBA Jimbaran BALI by AYANA
When it comes to brunching, Bali really shines – cute cafes are everywhere and you can be sure to have perfectly toasted sourdough with the creamiest smashed avocado. But when you want to take your lover by surprise, we’d think you should opt out from the cliché dining experiences and sign up for something far from ordinary.
Whether you want to do it for ‘the Gram’ or to truly enjoy a dreamy moment with your sweetheart, a romantic floating brunch in the pool is a magical way to start the day in paradise! What a time to be alive; after breakfast in bed, you can now go on a date around good food and perfectly chilled sparkling wine right in the pool!
Truth be told, it is hard to decide what is more appealing at RIMBA – is it the little canapés on the brunch spread or the forest pool overlooking the treetops that catches your eyes? Luckily you get to have both!
And it doesn’t matter if you’ve planned to sleep in as this sensual dining experience is available from 8am to 2pm! Why resist it?
Best yet, your day doesn’t stop here as there are endless ways to spend a cheeky romantic vacation around the resort – their collection of ocean view rooms is simply arousing; it is our pick for quality flirty times before lounging in for an intimate moment at the Forest Bar and indulging in delicious Mexican cuisine poolside at UNIQUE Rooftop Bar & Restaurant – an irresistible venue for unforgettable moments!
Delight in a table for two, with a gorgeous view!
If you’re gonna go out with your partner, go for a meal but do it right! Rest assured it doesn’t always have to be fancy on date night.
Shake things up and impress your date at these unique dining locations. Besides the array of meal options, the view itself is scenic and extraordinary.
Hair down, sit back, relax and soak up the spectacular views while enjoying good food with an even better company.1. Go on a brunch date above the river – Rafting Brunch at Sthala, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Ubud Bali
To put it simply, I adore brunch time – in fact, I often consider it sacred. This is the time where I spend mornings that turned into afternoons chilling around at eateries, having a big glorious meal as I catch up with my boyfriend. For us, it is the Holy Grail of weekend gatherings and it’s honestly my favourite kind of dates.
However, it seems (to my surprise) that not all brunches were created equal! The proof is hidden deep in the jungles of Ubud, right at Sthala where you can set out for an almighty brunch as you raft on the river! As you enjoy the thrill of this experience, you also get to relish on the surrounding forest and blend in nature all along!
Come and brunch like no one else as you are set in a beautiful (and safe) floating raft – it is one next-level way to indulge in juicy steak sandwiches, fresh prawns, crispy pastries and their collection of delectable desserts. The package comes with various options such as an Indian or vegetarian menu.

3. 500 Feet-high clifftop bar with a glass-bottomed infinity pool – One Eighty
What’s bringing clifftop infinity pools to a different level?
A crystal blue glass-bottomed infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean, that stretches all the way out from the cliff 500 feet high, creating a gravity-defying concrete-encased lagoon with a million-dollar view – the highlight of One Eighty, a new sophisticated bar and restaurant that’s a recent addition to The Edge Villas at Uluwatu.
Before you know it, you’ll be floating in mid-air with the sweeping waves crashing beneath you.
The pool is not the only gorgeous thing about One Eighty. The menu is also superbly designed by Bali’s own Chef Nyoman – the globetrotting chef who is the mastermind behind Seminyak’s famous Bambu Restaurant, well-known for its Indonesian cuisine.
Inspired by the same opulence and luxury of The Edge’s beach culture, One Eighty brings you the amazing sensation of perched on the very edge of the world.

5. Sign up for a relaxation therapy above water – Spa on The Rocks at AYANA Resort and Spa BALI

8. Experience the healing properties of water at a mystical riverside spa – Tjampuhan Spa
With an air of mystique and a magical outdoor spa setting to rival the most beautiful secret locations in Ubud, the day spa at the Tjampuhan Hotel is positioned at the base of a valley, mere metres away from the natural splendour of one of Ubud’s gently flowing river tributaries.
Composed of several semi-open treatment pavilions and an extraordinary hot/cold spring water jacuzzi created within an elaborately carved mythical stone cavern.
True to its natural setting, Tjampuhan spa is dedicated to the healing properties of water, and has sourced a collection of traditional Balinese healing and beauty treatments in a setting that evokes the inner peace and overall wellness of an intimate connection with Mother Nature.
You don’t have to be a guest of the hotel to experience the unique riverside hideaway of the Tjampuhan Day Spa.

9. Get your zen at the edge of heaven – Cliff Edge Spa Cabana at Alila Villas Uluwatu
We’ve had the chance to match our romantic spa date with postcard-perfect ocean views at the Cliff Edge Spa Cabana at Alila Villas Uluwatu and god it was an absolute dream! The venue is a destination in itself – one where you’ll be tuned up, or rather transformed!
The cabana only allows two guests at a time, so if you are on the lookout for something super romantic, as well as soothingly aquatic – this is where you belong!
How the procedure goes is pretty simple, we trekked down the cliff and relished endless killer views of the Indian Ocean before being set for the 120-minute curated body treatment (including a foot treatment, Balinese/Therapeutic Massage, sound healing and relaxing eye ritual) that is complemented with natural sea breeze and the sounds of the waves rolling in offshore. It’s quite a spectacle, I tell you, but make sure you’ve sprayed some insect repellent prior too!
But if you’re more of an indoor person, they also have traditional spa treatment rooms. The couple treatment room features a semi-outdoor area, allowing plenty of natural light in as soothing spa music plays in the background and soon enough you’ll doze off in the hands of some real experts as they work out the Balinese Massage oh-so-perfectly. The spa uses products from their own skin care range (Alila Living), which you can also purchase at the lobby area.

10. Together, hike up to greater heights: Mende Hill
If you and your partner don’t have a lot in common, it’s time to share interest in a great hobby that could suit you both.
Greater views come after the hardest climb; relationship-wise too!
Fill your couple life with adventures, get out of your comfort zone, wander where the Wi-Fi is weak but where the connection between you both is the strongest!
As we all know, a relationship is like a hike up a mountain, it needs courage, strength and helping hands from both sides.
We’ve got this on the list as it is one of the most lesser-known hiking spots in Bali, which also means no crowd and privacy assured.
The hike is relatively easy but oh-so-totally worth it and scenic! The way up the hill might sometimes be challenging, but what can be better than giving each other mental and physical support? Who knows, you might both fall in love with hiking!
P.S. Girls, relax – it’s totally fine to be dirty and smelly around your partner… sometimes! They say doing sports together can bond couples together!
Address: Mende Hill, Subaya Village, Kintamani Bangli Regency, Indonesia.
11. Find refuge with a quiet forest view at the Kamandalu Swing
What better way to escape from the busy city life than to perch yourselves atop a swing in the middle of Bali’s lush greenery?
You probably wouldn’t mind spending the day lazing on the comfy swing and cuddling with your sweetheart. You can simply relax in your lover’s arms to the sound of nature and fresh mountain breeze.
To get exclusive access to this incredible swing, all you need is to go for a lovely treatment at the Forest Spa. Serene Escape, Heavenly Touch – the spa packages speak for themselves.
Disclaimer (for the super romantics only): Kamandalu is much more romantic than just its swing; you might want to surprise your lover with a magical picnic aboard a rowing boat, as though you were in Venice!
Time to paddle your lover off to your own fairytale! Another romantic gesture is to secretly pack your sweetie a box of her favorite chocolates!
Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream… Indeed, life as a couple is but a dream!
Price Range: Spa packages start from Rp. 600,000 per person (Approximately USD $45) Website
Address: Jalan Andong, Banjar Nagi, Ubud Bali 80571 Indonesia

12. Take a romantic stroll among the blessed marigolds: Desa Temukus
Note: These marigold fields are currently out of bounds for visitors due to the recent Mount Agung eruption. Just keep this magical place on your list when you next travel to Bali!
Some of you might envision your ideal date as a leisurely walk on one of Bali’s best beaches, sipping mojitos by an infinity pool, but we think there’s nothing more romantic than strolling in a beautiful field of Marigold. Indeed, the most memorable moments are the most silent and serene ones.
When a bouquet is not enough; you offer a whole field of flowers!
Marigold flower has a very prominent significance to the Balinese culture (with regards to its Indian origin). In fact, the flower is often associated with the sun due to its vibrant orange and yellow colour.
Time to remind your lover that they’re that one person who makes your day brighter!
Marigolds are symbols of passion and creativity – often used as love charms depicting the beauty of marriage and a sign of fresh beginning for newly married couples.
Bali break-up curse? Put this aside and think twice; this beautiful flower plantation will prove you wrong as you stroll around hand-in-hand with your lover. Take a walk and spend quality time enjoying what nature has to offer to you both – complete aesthetic visuals and tranquility guaranteed.
It is indeed the perfect timing to pop the question!
With its stunningly colorful orange flowers, it is hands-down the best spot for couple selfies with Mount Agung as backdrop too.
Along the way, you can also stop by the nearby Kasna flower field and relish in the peaceful white ambience of glory and its beautiful scenery.
Both Marigold and Kasna flowers are used as a sign of worship in Bali and are believed to be blessed.
Steal each other’s heart at these romantic retreats
Dinner dates, love letters, a bouquet of roses; they surely put you in a good mood for some romance, but what if all of these get paired up with a romantic getaway to the Land of Gods?
These dreamy romantic spots will sparkle up your love for each other. Oh-so-romantically worth a stay, these hideaways are ideal to pop the question, enjoy your honeymoon or simply spend some quality time with your lovebird.
13. 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.

Indulge in cute Instagrammable desserts and cafés
Dessert and romance – we like to believe that these are two basic human needs, or shall we say, life’s little pleasures especially for a couple!
When it comes to romantic meals for two, you should always strive to impress, so here are charming cafés that will make your loved one fall head over heels in love with you again (if he/she isn’t already!).
18. Unicorns are real (and edible) – Cloud Cakes
Nothing gets more magical than unicorns, and nothing gets prettier than unicorns at Cloud Cakes – a dessert and snack stall at Denpasar.
This unicorn-themed establishment has a unicorn in its logo, and works hard to live up to it – many of their pastries feature that elusive animal.
Not only do they have a unicorn cake (with a cone for a horn), there’s also a special drink that includes a paper unicorn peeking out from a cloud of candy floss.
That’s not all they have to offer though. Cloud Cakes also makes a series of pastel-coloured pastries, including rainbow cakes, donuts, and even shaved ice!
Just looking at the pictures alone are enough to give us a toothache – so we completely understand if you’re a manly man, and don’t appreciate beautiful horses with horns on their heads.
But can you resist the Grilled Cheese Sandwich that is grilled to perfection, and can you reject these golden brown fried oreos – that both have a unicorn printed on their packagings?
You can run, but you can’t hide from the unicorn at Cloud Cakes… and we don’t want to anyway.

This quirky little place also has a funky dessert.
Admit it – an Instagram cake is just the very thing your Instagram page desperately needs.
This sweet treat is not just pleasurable to your eyes, but under the marzipan layer, delicious mouth-watering brownie awaits.
And here’s another extraordinary piece of cake.
No, this is not a jar of Nutella, but a Nutella cake! Where else in the world can you can devour the entire Nutella and not feel (too) guilty about it?
If you feel like trying out something crazier, Livingstone cafe has baked for you some funky-looking watermelon bread.
You can also order coffee with strawberry, orange or avocado flavour!

20. Go on alluring island getaways right from Bali! – Nusa Islands and Gili Islands
As an island connoisseur, I have ticked off all of the Nusa Islands (Nusa Penida, Lembongan and Ceningan), as well as all Gili Islands (Gili Trawangan, Meno and Air) and thoroughly enjoyed them all – they’ve each got their own little traits and personalities that make them different from each other and oh-so unique!
a. Nusa Penida, Lembongan and Ceningan
Much less part of Bali’s overly-touristy scene, the Nusa Islands remain partially untouched, giving the trio a very nature-friendly, authentic laid-back ambience.
The three little islands are located about a 40-minute boat ride away and are ideal for a day trip or an overnight stay, and all depends on how much of the islands you want to see and experience (some even spend over a week discovering the islands!).
While the biggest island of Nusa Penida offers principally rugged landscapes and sceneries out of sci-fi movies, know that you’re in for equally bumpy roads and that it might take you over an hour to travel from one side of the island to the next. Also, forget glamorous beach clubs, organic cafes or trendy restaurants as the island is rather undeveloped. However, it does house some of the most majestic natural sights – we let the pictures speak for themselves!
The middle child is the island of Nusa Ceningan, where life looks like Bali some 30 years ago. The island is the smallest of the trio, and is nestled in the middle of Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan. Here, you’ll find a quiet ambience with dazzling clear and blue water as well as a few funky open-air bar and restaurants and crazy cliff-jumping spots.
Another alternative is to explore Nusa Lembongan, where you’ll also find some crazy things to do. In between dreamy beaches, spectacular natural phenomena and a dazzling underwater world, you sure will come to realise you’ve made the right choice by exploring beyond just Bali!
b. Gili Trawangan, Meno and Air
Hop from paradise to paradise and discover the unique charm of these three islands. If you’re craving for some crazy good times with your friends, the best bet here is to settle at Gili Trawangan, the party island that never sleeps!
Once you’re ready to go all barefoot, explore Gili Meno, the most untouched of the three Gili islands which is still a little on the rugged laid-back side but has it all to unplug from reality. It makes a good option for honeymooners on the lookout for privacy and almost-empty beaches.
Looking for something in between? Drop by Gili Air. This little paradise is an off-the-beaten-path destination for couples and families alike. It offers calm turquoise waters and slow-paced everything!

21. Spend the sunset on the edge of a towering cliff – Melasti Beach, Ungasan
One of the most charming white sand beaches on the southern coast of the Island of the Gods, Melasti Beach Ungasan is usually frequented by couples taking their pre-wedding photoshoot, who want to capture the beautiful formation of rock and limestone walls that surround the winding roads here.
These cliffs go up to as high as 100 to 150 metres!
The impressive height of the cliffs makes this place a contender for the position of the best sunset spot in Bali. Every evening, be prepared to be lulled by the beautiful sunset views from the majestic cliff tops and even from the sandy shores.
There’s even small caves where you can take unique photos in!
Note: this Melasti Beach is located in the Ungasan area, and it’s not the beach with the same name near Tanah Lot!
Melasti Beach, Ungasan
Address: Gang VIII No.8, Denpasar Utara, Ungasan, Denpasar, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80234, Indonesia
Getting There: You can get here by motorbike or car. Look for Jalan Melasti, then go straight up until you see Banyan Tree Hotel and Resort. The cliffs are further up from the resort. Coordinates here.
22. Mount Batur’s Volcanic Landscape, viewed from Pinggan village
Mount Batur (1,717m) is the most visited volcano in Bali, but most visitors usually join the tourist hordes at Kintamani village for views of the majestic fire-breather.
For a view of Batur that’s arguably more spectacular, we suggest you head to the more isolated village of Pinggan.
Here you can experience the fierce splendour of the active volcano in a more solitary, meditative setting.
Batur is at its most photogenic at sunrise and sunset, and even makes for impressive night photography – with the lights of Pinggan village spread out at the foot of the mountain, and a sky full of stars twinkling above the peak.
Getting There: Most Mount Batur tours don’t stop at Pinggan village (which is why it makes it so gloriously uncrowded), so you’re best getting there on your own steam. Ubud is the nearest major tourist hub and Pinggan is about 45km, or an hour’s drive away. Coordinate here
Savour romantic afternoon tea time
Tip #1 to winning your lover’s heart: Take afternoon tea time very seriously while on vacation.
These places master the art of romantic tea time experiences, where tea and honey rhyme just like your hands and his/hers do.
You’ll envy the cup of tea that gets to kiss your partner’s lips but who knows, you might definitely be their cup of tea or even better – their hot-tea!
23. Enjoy tea like the British do it – Standing Stones Restaurant at The Royal Purnama
The Royal Purnama’s Standing Stones Restaurant stands out amongst many other dining establishments in Bali, for one simple reason.
Look at those magnificent stones standing against the perfect backdrop of black sand and deep blue waters.
Now take away the sand and waters, and there you have it – you’re at Stonehenge in England! Uh, not really, but since you’re at (what really looks like) the Brits’ homebase, how could you not indulge in some classic British teatime action?
Sit back on the grassy plains and sip at your tea in the sunshine, or dine inside the comfort of the restaurant – it’s your pick. But wherever you choose to go, the views won’t disappoint.
Neither will your tea party friends, namely the selection of eight Femmes Dammann French loose leaf teas, including Standing Stone’s signature Earl Grey Blend.
Freshly made pastries, cakes and biscuits are all presented on a classy tiered tray to top off your authentic high tea experience!
And if you’d like to work off those calories after consuming a mountain of cakes, simply pay an additional fee of Rp. 350,000 (USD $26.50) to lounge on the gazebo or swim in the pool right beside the restaurant.
You know what, this might even be better than really going to Stonehenge.

Once you’re up in the treehouse and looking out, you’ll be able to see glorious, glorious sights. From the pretty Atuh Beach and small surrounding islands like Raja Ampat in Papua, to the many cliffs, ravines and hills that paint Bali’s landscape – it’s a sight not to miss!
Thankfully, the treehouse was built with a ladder, so you don’t have to literally climb the tree just to get to the treehouse! Just bring a picnic along and make it a stunning memory atop a tree, complete with crazy views and delicious food!
How’s this for an Instagrammable moment?

Shop for souvenirs, adorable homeware and more!
As the legend goes, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. Just like shopping in Bali may be on her list but surfing may be on his, remember that a couple that shops together stays together? (Says any lady out there!)
Relax, we’re not talking about ring shopping (but why not?).
Going on vacation together calls for some great souvenir shopping, be it for your friends, relatives or for the both of you to create the best post-holiday memories. Get your hands on some exceptional artsy items at these lesser-known locations!
27. Trendiest bazaar in Bali’s hipster district – Love Anchor
Canggu is hipster enough and you know it.
If you walk along Jalan Batu Balong after the sun sets, you can’t miss this exciting Instagrammable market made up of a complex of restaurants, bars and shops, decorated with dreamy fairy lights and illuminated with a cheery vibe as the crowd pours in for their after-dinner drinks.
And on Sundays, the area is transformed into the most happening bazaar with pop-up stalls.
Here, you can find trendy and whimsical island fashion, accessories, homeware, dreamcatchers, trinkets and even old school artwork. And if you keep an eye out enough, you can even discover some hidden gems for your kids.
Or if you are here for a drink, don’t miss the daily Happy Hour!
One tip from us – although this is one of Canggu’s most photogenic markets, the shopping here may be a little overpriced, but it’s worth a look (and many snaps!) if you haven’t been to Bali’s weekend bazaars before!
28. Stop and smell the roses – Rose Avenue Bali
You don’t have to like floral prints and roses to want to visit Rose Avenue. Known for its rose-laden facade (and we’re talking about a wall full of red and pink roses), Rose Avenue offers beautiful homeware items from a pineapple shaped bottle opener to rattan swings.
So if you’re new in Bali and are shopping for home items, drop by this store and simply be stunned by everything.
Want to take a sweet Instagram selfie with a bed of roses as your backdrop? You’ll be able to do that if you visit Rose Avenue.
Another thing to note? Their paper bags have “Stop and smell the roses” written all over them. And why wouldn’t you? If you aren’t drawn by this unique facade, we don’t know what else will. Shopping will literally be a walk in the park.
If you think that pastel is the only color palette Rose Avenue has. You’re wrong. They have neon colors, as seen in their flamingo coat/towel hook – and in the apples, pineapples, and other tropical fruits that can be used as decorations or paper holders.
You can even get design inspiration through their dining table set-up, or pick through the different types of dinnerware, placemats, table cloths, and anything you fancy.
Even if you’re just looking for one eccentric piece, such as a rattan swing, or a bright pink chair that opens up like a flower – you’ll definitely be in the right place.

29. Everything beautiful, as far as the eye can see – Sukawati Art Market
When we were here, we were blown away by the sheer size of Sukawati Art Market.
Walking around Sukawati Art Market can be a little tricky in the sense that it may feel like a maze. But if you’re out to discover really unique things in the hidden shops off the alleys, then you’re in for a ride.
Here, you will find an extensive range of items. Handmade bags, wooden ethnic bowls, crockery, those popular comfortable batik pants, dresses, and insanely gorgeous shell items. (2-3 times cheaper than Ubud central)
Of course, if you’re on the hunt for some art to bring home, there are many shops with paintings available, and wooden sculptures too!
Be warned though, you will find plenty of similar paintings of the mass produced variety. However, if you do spend a little more time (and dedication) going through the shops and their paintings, you are bound to find something unique that will sit pretty in your home.
Tip: If you intend to explore the market fully, make sure to set at least half a day aside for this!

Fancy a dreamy stay in a villa with magical views
Nothing will make eyes sparkle like love words. Well, wait, a villa with a view can do that too.
Yes it might be a little kitsch but the idea of staying in a private villa when in Bali will make you both melt.
We’re taking a risk but we think it’s safe enough to say that you’ll be obsessed by the view; so obsessed that you’ll probably go “♫ You’re just too good to be true, I can’t take my eyes off you, You’d be like heaven to touch, I wanna hold you so much …♫”
30. Your very own slice of Santorini in Bali – Morabito Art Cliff (From USD $420)

At the edge of the 18-metre-long infinity pool at the Munduk Moding Plantation, you can almost feel heaven at your fingertips.
Spread out in front of you is a sea of cloud, that partially shields the surrounding coffee plantation from your sight.

Romantic escape to these secluded beaches
Bali’s tropical ambience is exceptional for a romantic getaway, but it can get a little tricky to find isolated places that are off the tourist track, just for you and your babe.
Lesser-known beaches are the answers to your call!
Every moment spent at these sandy stretches is a constant reminder that Bali is a couple’s ideal romantic destination.
34. Virgin Sands – Nyang Nyang Beach
Care for a beach all to yourself? That’s Nyang Nyang for you!
The white pristine sands of the beach are lined by a towering green cliff, which keeps it away from prying eyes. If you are quite the explorer and looking for some solitude, this secluded beach in Southern Bali is perfect for a little adventure.
To get to the beach, you need to follow a dirt track close to Uluwatu Temple and keep a lookout for a sign saying “Nyang Nyang Surfing Beach”.
Next, you cross a field where you will find a drinks stall (the only one in the area as the beach is devoid of all shops and stalls also) before alighting the 500 flights of steps that finally open up to the beach.
So yes, getting there might be an adventure in itself, but we’d say it’s definitely worth the effort.
Especially with the parts of an abandoned vessel laying around the beach – perfect for a photo-op, or even a quaint little exploration.
And if you’re looking for more photo-ops, you definitely have to check out the secret wild garden by the beach – it’s blooming with a plethora of sunshine flowers that’ll provide an amazing backdrop with a cheerful pop of yellow!
Nyang Nyang Beach
Directions: Take a car or bike to Jalan Uluwatu, and look for a sign that reads “Nyang Nyang Surfing Beach”. Park, then make the rest of the journey by foot to the beach!
Address: Nyang Nyang Beach, Jl. Raya Uluwatu, Uluwatu, Bali. Coordinates here
35. Panoramic Views – Gunung Payung Beach
Gunung Payung is not only a hidden paradise, but is also (thankfully) quite accessible for being one.
Just an hour’s drive away from Denpasar City, located at Nusa Dua – one can follow a marker road to reach here. Once here, get treated to panoramic views of the ocean right to the horizon!
The beach is clean and perfect for trying out some yoga. You can also engage in various activities like surfing and snorkeling – or more culturally interesting ones like getting a glimpse of the local ways of life.
Watch the seaweed farmers and sea urchin collectors go about their daily chores, and strike up a conversation or two, just to learn more about what they do. Who knows, you might just be able to sample seaweed or sea urchin thanks to your new friendship. ?
Gunung Payung Beach
Directions: The beach is located to the east of the famous Pandawa Beach, so one can easily ask locals around the area how to get there. Alternatively, you can try looking for the Gunung Payung Temple. But be prepared for some serious stair climbing (300 steps)!
Address: Jalan Gunung Umbrella 1, Nusa Dua, South Kuta, Badung regency, Bali, Indonesia. Coordinates here
Find seclusion and adventure in West Bali
If you’ve travelled to Bali and are tired of the commercialised south, and have explored central and north Bali, why not head west for a very different romantic experience?
Coupling your travels with some off-the-beaten track adventures could be the ultimate means to re-ignite your spark with some good level of excitement.
Oh yes, romance and adventure just go together, particularly when it’s in the west of Bali.
36. When ocean, wild nature and comfort meet: The Octagon Ocean Club by Plataran Menjangan
In the midst of wild nature, you’ll find a large resort hidden in the jungle of West Bali National Park.
Nestled by the beach, the Plataran Menjangan Resort and Spa, an immense Mediterranean-style resort boasts of an iconic three-storey-high Octagon Ocean Club that overlooks the ocean and Menjangan Island, as far as the eyes can see. As the name suggests, the club is shaped like an octagon to capture 360-degree views of the national park and the ocean.
You can’t miss the 33-metre-long oceanfront infinity pool that fronts the ocean club – the perfect place to chill and enjoy sunset cocktails!
Here, you’ll get a mix of unique dining experience – fresh seafood, Asian and international cuisine with cultural performances – and an encounter with the wild nature of West Bali. Encompassing a dense biodiversity from mangroves and lowland rain forests, to savannas and seagrass landscapes, as well as deep-sea waters with sandy beaches and coral reefs, you can experience the untouched and preserved ecosystem in a deluxe set-up.
If you are here with your partner, you will love the wooden deck, where you can enjoy some privacy.
As you walk along the beach, you may even come across the park’s protected deers. Isn’t that just lovely?

Romance will find you at the Bali Tower Restaurant, located on an open-air platform on a tower that soars over the forest cover.
The restaurant is part of the lovely Menjangan resort, which is in the Bali Barat National Park.
As this is home to myriad wildlife, some endangered, you may come across deer (otherwise known as menjangan) and various birds along the way.
Surrounded by leaves and bathed in sunlight, you can gaze at mountains, valleys and beaches from on high – it will definitely be a Valentine’s Day to remember.
Our recommendation? Do try the wagyu beef burger.
