Enjoying a spa is the best thing to do in Bali. La Joya Spa in Biu Biu Resort in Jimbaran was a truly sensuous experience. The herbal oils and gentle hands of the masseurs had done wonders with our bodies. We were immersed in the bathtub, and the turquoise blue waters of the Indian Ocean lay in front of us. In Ubud, we had a similar spa treatment, but this time, the scene had changed, and we were right in the middle of an evergreen jungle, a river flowed nearby, and the chirping of birds was the most soothing sound that we could have enjoyed in our spa.
2. Romantic Dinner
Bali is the best place to do so many things, and Ubud especially, is the best place for a romantic dinner. We were in this restaurant called Swept Away, and it was located in the most flamboyant setting that we could imagine. A hundred flickering candles surrounded us on all sides, a brook flowed nearby, making soft gurgling sounds, and there was the forest, peaceful and tranquil. It made our dinner a memorable affair. Having a romantic dinner with your loved one is the most romantic things to do in Bali.
3. Romantic Islands
Visiting Lembongon and Ceningan Islands was the most romantic thing to do in Bali. We were in an aquatic paradise, with blue waters of the ocean encircling the white sandy beaches of the islands. We watched the sun set on Dream Beach, and had the most wonderful time seeing the waves crash with a loud roar at Devil’s Tears. We cycled in the interiors, passing through villages, and locals. Diving in the Blue Lagoon in Ceningan Island too was an absolute thrill!!
4. Romantic Beaches
You cannot escape the beaches in Bali!! We visited the ever popular Kuta Beach, where we walked for some time and relaxed on the sands admiring the sunset. A Russian couple came and sat next to us and we had an impromptu chat. Personally, I felt the beaches in Gili Islands, and those at Lembongam Island to be the best in Bali. But in the main island itself, Padang Padang was also a beautiful beach. We could have sat on the beach gazing at the sunset for many hours, but the waves were too inviting, and off we went for bathing in the waves. It was the most beautiful things to do in Bali on honeymoon.
5. Romantic Cruise
Ocean adventures didn’t seem to stop at any point of time in Bali. Going on a luxury cruise to the islands of Lembongan, Ceningan and Gili was the most romantic thing to do in Bali. I still remember the catamaran slicing the waters, and cruising along as if riding on a wind. The azure sky above seemed so ethereal. We had the exotic breakfast and lunch aboard the catamaran. The luxury cruise tour was a supreme romantic thing to do in Bali. The cruise provides you with everything that you need for an exciting aquatic adventure – paddles, snorkeling equipment, surfboard, life jackets etc.
6. Horse ride
I am not a big fan of horse riding, but can say now that horse riding is the most romantic thing to do in Bali. We were both seated on horseback, and were making our way through the lush greenery of Ubud. We passed the thatched homes of villagers; the dirt road that the horse walked on took us to some of the most beautiful landscapes of Ubud. The rice terraces here had the most beautiful shades of green, and were the most picturesque things we saw in Bali. We also did horse riding on the beach.
7. Fireflies tour
The fireflies tour made us travel through the jungles of Ubud. After we had a most delicious Balinese cuisine, at night, we went deep into the forests with our guides, who explained us how rice is cultivated, and how the unique Subak irrigation system provides water to the rice fields. Finally, after a bit of walking, our guides stopped at a point, and pointed towards a spot, where we saw the glowing lights emitted by the fireflies. These insects are found in rainforests around the world, and Bali being a tropical island, is the best place to see these beautiful insects.
8. Chocolate making tour
Visiting the Pod Chocolate Factory in Ubud is among the most romantic thing to do in Bali on honeymoon. They produce hand crafted chocolate in different flavours. We saw the cacao pods hanging on the trees, and could not believe that these were the very things that give us the chocolates we enjoy so often. We saw the most delicious part of the production – liquid chocolate being poured on a large slab. We tasted the chocolate beverage and also bought some from the shop.
9.Underwater walking tour
The real magic of Bali lies in the underwater world. The waters around Lembongan Island are so crystal clear, we could actually see the sea floor from our catamaran. The marine walk was the best thing to do in Bali on honeymoon. We were provided with the necessary scuba equipment, and we went underwater to explore the marine world. Various types of fishes encircled us, as if welcoming us into their abode. We proceeded to walk the ocean floor and feed the fishes. The aquamarine colors of the ocean captivated us in a most wonderful ways.
10. Romantic waterfalls
We were in Ubud where our next adventure was waiting for us. After an early breakfast, we drove off to the spectacular Tegenungan Waterfalls. The roar of the cascading waters is such that it can silence every other sound. Besides the waterfall, there is a stream where we sat in the flowing water and drenched ourselves. The waterfall is one of the many other gorgeous waterfalls in the Ubud region of Bali. Nung Nung Waterfalls were so exciting, that we could have spent the whole day bathing in the waters!! Bathing in a waterfall is the best thing to do in Bali on honeymoon.
I started with the best and ending with the best. The spa was man-made, and this Jacuzzi was all natural!! Tegal Wangi beach in Jimbaran is a rocky beach, where you can sit and enjoy a natural Jacuzzi. But be prepared to get splashed all over by big waves from time to time. There is a natural cave where you can sit by the sands and just soak
