Romantic resorts in Bali

Resort / February 2, 2024

With its laid-back atmosphere and dreamy landscapes, Bali is the perfect destination for any romantic getaway.

Out of a list of thousands of activities for lovebirds to do in Bali, here are my personal picks for 10 romantic things to do with your someone special:

1. Have A Romantic Dinner In Bali

The quintessential big romantic gesture lies in the romantic dinner - wine and dine. Bali, blessed with its jaw-dropping views and amazing natural landscapes offers a wide variety of just such romantic dinners for every couple - whether you are proposing, celebrating an anniversary or simply on a romantic vacation.

Romantic Dinner In Canggu

Snuggle in for an aphrodisiac picnic dinner in bed at the ultra-stylish museum-hotel Hotel Tugu Bali for sunset. You get to soak in the soft candlelight peppering the beach and serve each other dessert blindfolded for that added spice to end your meal.

Romantic Dinner In Uluwatu

Uluwatu is the chic, upper-class cousin of more popular areas like Seminyak and Kuta. It has some of the best views on the islands and no shortage of amazing resorts and infinity pools. Out of the many, I recommend these two specific dinners in Uluwatu situated next to infinity pools at the edges of cliffs for their stunning views and exceptional cuisine.

First off, this Surrounded by candles and flower petals, your table affords you a perfect view of the vast Indian Ocean below. Choose between 3 tantalising menus to impress your loved one and make this a night to remember!

Dinner on an infinity pool overlooking the horizon? We say yes please!

The second option provides for the added luxury of a couple’s spa before the sunset dinner at one of Uluwatu’s ultra-chic 5 star hotels. Arguably the spa with the best view in Bali, this added bonus is the perfect pre-cursor to the one of the dinner to follow which is equally stunning.

Check out that stunning view!

By far one of the most luxurious dining options in Bali is this cliffside dinner overlooking the Indian ocean.

Romantic Dinner On A Cruise From Benoa

If cruising is more your activity, watch the sunset over dinner on a luxury catamaran. There’s a live Batako band that will serenade you with your acoustic favourites. They take requests from guests so you can have them play “your song” while the sun sets over the horizon.

Romantic Dinner In Ubud

If you’re staying in Ubud, traveling to these locations may be a bit of a hassle. But fret not, there are many options for romantic dinners in Ubud. One of the most famous is the secluded private pavilion in the middle of the rice paddies. Chef Ongky’s 4-course discovery menu features the best of Balinese cuisine. I’m a personal fan of his melt-in-your-mouth beef tenderloin and refreshing sherberts.

For a more private evening, this is a must-do. It’s held in a quiet section of the recently renovated Kamandalu resort in Ubud, which feels just like a picturesque village in the countryside. As you can see from the photo below, the setting and the candle decorations are absolutely stunning and you even get to release 2 white doves before your 6-course dinner.

Alternatively, if you prefer to dine in your very own ‘bird’s nest’, below is sure to wow with a spectacular view.

The even comes with a rejuvenating 1-hour massage overlooking the rice paddies and river so you are totally relaxed and ready to enjoy each other’s company the light falls.

Romantic Dinner in Nusa Dua

If luxury is more your thing, try this romantic dinner at Samabe resort which sits on a private beach. What makes it really stand out is the fact that dinner is served in a cave. A personal butler, dedicated chefs, a private cave and beach. What more can you ask for?

2. Take A Bali Cruise Day

No trip to Bali is complete without spending a day out on the water exploring its beautiful sister islands Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. Our top pick? This luxury catamaran cruise to Nusa Lembongan. Your day trip includes access to a private beach club, snorkelling in crystal clear water and sunset cocktails! Tip: book this as soon as possible, because this cruise is usually fully booked!

This private catamaran cruise is limited to a maximum of 30 passengers, ensuring an intimate setting for your romantic excursion

If you happen to arrive in Bali between April 1 and October 31, this will take you to the spectacular white sand bay and stunning waters of Crystal Bay.

3. Mt. Batur Hiking - Watch The Sunrise At The Peak Of The Volcano

The traditional paths tend to get crowded and not-so romantic. So if you’d like to avoid the crowds,
