Honeymooning in Bali

Created By:

My husband and I spent two weeks exploring the beautiful island of Bali for our honeymoon. We hit up Canggu, Ubud (our favorite & we are huge beach people), Gili T and Uluwatu. We had the most amazing time (30 foot swells, earthquakes and all) and are looking forward to heading back sometime in the future!

The Haven Suites Bali Berawa (Canggu)

The Haven, Jalan Pemelisan Agung, Tibubeneng, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia

Highly recommend this hotel. Beautiful rooms, right on the beach, excellent breakfast included, great pool, friendly and helpful staff! Walking distance to shops, restaurants and beach bars. They also have a free shuttle that runs a few times a day to Seminyak Square.

Finns Beach Bar

Finns Beach Club, Jalan Pantai Berawa, Tibubeneng, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia

Beautiful beach bar right on the ocean perfect for sunset. They have a pool and a bunch of lounge chairs. Very crowded and the food was average. Would recommend for drinks.

Nalu Bowls

Nalu Bowls, Jalan Batu Mejan, Canggu, Bandung, Bali, Indonesia

We took a walk down to Echo beach wandered around town for a little and came across Nalu Bowls. Definitely recommend this cute bungalow for açaí bowls and fresh smoothies. They also have free WiFi.

Bije Villa Ubud (Airbnb)

Bije Villa, Ubud, Gianyar, Bali, Indonesia

We loved this villa! Absolutely stunning, clean and comfortable. Having a private pool was a little slice of heaven. We wish we stayed another night. Breakfast included was delicious. The staff was very nice, super accommodating and helpful. They run a free shuttle back and fourth into the center of Ubud which is very convenient. Highly recommend!

Monkey Forest

Jalan Monkey Forest, Ubud, Gianyar, Bali, Indonesia

One of my favorite parts of the trip! The bigger monkeys can be aggressive so keep your distance. Don't wear sunglasses and hold on tight to your phones. The little monkeys were adorable and very curious.

Bali Swing

My Swing Bali, Bongkasa, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia

It was fun and I thought it was worth it. But be ready to wait in line. Try to go as early as possible. Lunch was included.

ATV

Bali ATV Ride and Ubud Tour, Jalan Pakisaji, Sumerta Kelod, Denpasar City, Bali, Indonesia

This is one of the best parts of our trip. It was about $90 per person and it includes lunch. They also give you wellington boots (got a little muddy). A great way to experience the back roads of Ubud.

Tegalalang Rice Terrace

Tegalalang Rice Terrace, Jalan Raya Tegallalang, Tegallalang, Gianyar, Bali, Indonesia

So beautiful & worth seeing. Would recommend wearing sneakers.

Tegenungan Waterfall

Tegenungan Waterfall, Kemenuh, Gianyar, Bali, Indonesia

There are better waterfalls in Bali but this one was closer to where we were. It was still stunning but very busy.

Mt. Batur Sunrise Hike

Mt Batur, South Batur, Bangli Regency, Bali, Indonesia

One of the best experiences I've ever had. We asked the people at our airbnb to help us set this up. A driver picked us up at 3am we drove to the mountain. They give you coffee, boiled egg and a banana. The trek takes about one to two hours to reach the peak. There will be a lot of people hiking up. They give you a flashlight. At the top you can see the peak of neighboring Mount Abang hovering above the clouds and the caldera lake spread out below. The sunrise was STUNNING. And there's a bunch of monkeys running around at the top.

Massages

JASMINE Massage Bodywork Spa, Jalan Sugriwa, Ubud, Gianyar, Bali, Indonesia

There are plenty of places to get massages in Ubud. They are about 6$ an hour. This place was a hole in the wall but the ladies were so sweet and the massage was great.

Locus Cafe

Lotus Cafe, Ubud, Gianyar, Bali, Indonesia

Good variety of local food with an incredible view.

Kuno Villas Gili T

Kuno Villas, Jl. Ikan Kima, Gili Indah, North Lombok Regency, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia

Stunning hut very close to the water on the more quiet side of the island (which we preferred). Clean, comfortable, and the bathroom had a coy pond! They provide bikes so you will have no problem getting around the island. We really enjoyed staying here. It's close to some good surf and snorkeling. **When traveling to Gili T take the fast boats. Avoid the slow boat at all costs! We were forced to take the slow boats due to the largest swell Bali has seen in years. It was a bit of a nightmare.**

Snorkel Gili T

Gili Trawangan, Gili Indah, North Lombok Regency, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia

We hired a private boat to snorkel around the islands. It wasn't expensive and it was worth it. The waves were so choppy and the currents were strong but we were able to cut our trip shorter then planned which was a plus. It would have been awful to be stuck on a boat all day getting sea sick. The fish and turtles are beautiful. They also have an amazing under water statue which I recommend checking out.

Sama-Sama Reggae Bar

Gili Trawangan, Gili Indah, North Lombok Regency, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia

Was our favorite spot for live music, good views and a cold one.

Boho Bingin Beach (Uluwatu)

Boho Bingin Beach Bali, Pecatu, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia

Great stay. Clean rooms, comfortable. Walking distance to Bingin beach.

Cashew Tree

Cashew Tree, Jalan Pantai Bingin, Pecatu, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia

We ate here a few times. Walking distance from Boho bingin. Delicious and health eats.

Padang Padang

Padang Padang Beach, Pecatu, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia

A bit more touristy. They charge you a bit to get down to it. Good place to surf. Watch your belongings the monkeys come down to the beach!

Bingin Beach

Bingin Beach, Bali, Indonesia

Close walk from our hotel. Must walk down the cliffs to get to the beach (Beautiful views). Good restaurants at the bottom. Solid place to surf, relax and enjoy the views.

Green Bowl Beach

Green Bowl Beach, Ungasan, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia

We took a car to check out green bowl beach. It's quite the hike down (a staircase) but worth it. The views are beautiful and there's a cave you can sit under. Check the tides before you go. I wouldn't spend all day there but it's a good spot to check out for an hour or so.

Sundays at Single Fin

Single Fin Bali, Pecatu, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia

Huge bar on a cliff overlooking 180 degrees of ocean. Bottle service if you want or just hang at multiple bars. Stunning views. Definitely a party vibe. Perfect for the most magnificent sunsets!
