Infinity pools, beautiful beaches and romantic resorts. Say hello to the best honeymoon hotels in Bali for 2019.
Bali often tops the lists of dream destinations for honeymoons, and for good reason! White sandy beaches, iconic rice terraces and mysterious jungles – it’s exotic and has a real air of romance about it. There are also plenty of gorgeous five-star romantic hotels in Bali, yet the island still retains some of the authenticity and culture that makes it special.
When I explored Bali, I fell in love with its mix of adventure and relaxation. You can spend the morning exploring the island on mopeds, then chill out on the beach or enjoy a massage in the afternoon.
If you’re planning your dream honeymoon, you could mix it up a bit! Perhaps enjoy a chilled out holiday in one of the beachside resorts, experience zen-style relaxation in Ubud or explore the party scene in Seminyak and Canggu. No matter what you’ve got planned for your honeymoon, this comprehensive guide features the best honeymoon hotels in Bali.
