Nothing spells romance like a dinner date with your special someone, and Bali rises to the occasion in style.

Romantic Royal Canopy Dinner

You can dine at a private beach on an antique bed illuminated by oil lanterns, witness magical sunsets on the edge of a cliff or dine under a canopy of stars in the middle of a jungle with only the sound of river for company.

Want more? How about dining in a cave facing the beach or next to a pride of lions? Or next to a rippling brook with 100 flickering candles by your side?

Bali has an endless list of guaranteed-to-sweep-your-lover-off-their-feet experiences.

You can start the day by walking along a mountain ridge overlooking a valley carpeted with rice paddies. On a clear morning, you will spot majestic volcanoes looming over the horizon.

There are day cruises which sail to pretty islands around Bali. Take a day off to enjoy the perfect life of sunshine and sundecks. If you are game for adventure, you could enjoy the water slide that drops you right into the ocean or go for a relaxed glass bottom boat ride.

Evenings are meant for picturesque sunset views. You can marvel at them while cruising along on a pirate themed cruise. Or from the world famous Ombok swings set up on a beach facing the mountains.

Ever watched a movie on a beach? It makes for a memorable date – a movie, a star lit sky, waves kissing your feet, all rolled into one

One of Bali’s prominent features is its volcanoes. The good news is, you can climb them and you should, for the best sunrise views in the world.

The trek starts in dead of the night and you wade through the jungle, the silence only interrupted by its whispers.

Come dawn, the fog draped mountain gets illuminated by the sun rising over a sea of clouds, revealing sparkling waters of the ocean below. You just cannot miss this!!!

Bali is a one stop shop for adventure lovers and water babies

It is part of the Coral Triangle – a group of islands featuring the most diverse reefs on the planet. Diving into the waters surrounding the island is like jumping into an aquarium.

The beaches of Bali are a hotbed for adventure sports – right from the usual suspects like Parasailing, Banana rides, Undersea walk to offbeat ones like Flyboarding, Flying fish and Wakeboarding.

The underwater scooter is one of the coolest ways to explore the depths of the oceans –it’s like your very own submarine with handle bars just like in a bike.

The daredevils have tonnes of thrilling activities to conquer their fears. Surfing is the most popular in Bali, with its world famous waves.

Not a fan of watersports? You can tackle wild rapids of a river, zipline over the ocean between rocky cliffs and rappel down 100 feet waterfalls.

Bali maintains a fine balance between a mellow and a thumping party scene

Want to shake a leg to some groovy beats? Bali has tonnes of lively nightclubs, rooftop bars and underground clubbing cellars where you can dance the night away.

Swanky beach clubs are the go to places for a night of cocktails and live music. They have stylish sunbeds to lounge about and infinity pools stretching out to the beach.

There are quite a few picturesque clubs around Bali. Imagine lounging on a bean bag on the edge of a cliff, enjoying tasty tapas and watching the sun sink in shades of red and orange.

Bali’s natural wonders will make you feel like gods did roam this land

There are rock canyons and gardens fed by natural pools. There are cascading springs plunging into the sea and natural infinity pools blending into the ocean.

A hike through jungle leads to a series of seven waterfalls gushing down emerald green forests. A natural arch created by rock cliffs houses an incredibly beautiful lagoon.

Some of its extraordinary beauties are far from the madding crowd and take some effort to reach, but are sure to give you a never-seen-before-experience.

With a reputation of being Southeast Asia’s chill-pill capital, pampering yourself with a spa in Bali is almost a rite of passage for a couple.

And these are no ordinary ones. We are talking of a spa’s right in the middle of the countryside and natural Jacuzzis in a jungle next to a stream.

How about succumbing to the sounds of the ocean while being massaged on a cliff over it? You really can’t get more relaxed than that.

Bali has magnificent seaside temples with stunning views – ideal for photo shoots

Bali is truly an abode of gods – hundreds of temples dotting its landscape are living proof of that. Some of these temples are absolutely gorgeous, more so for their views.

The Uluwatu temple perched on a cliff 250 feet above roaring waves is one of the best places to catch the sunset.

So is the picture perfect sea temple Tanah Lot.

The Ulun Danu Batur floating on a lake with mountains in the backdrop is one of the most preferred spots for couple photoshoots.

It's been real Bali 🇮🇩
