When they put ROMANCE on the menu in Bali, it seemingly all started in Ubud!! Harking back to the launch of the book “Eat, Pray, Love”, romance in Bali went off the charts and continues to do so to this day! And one of the companies supporting this trend is Ini Vie Hospitality, who have a spectrum of romantic properties and venues that can soften even the most hardened of hearts.
Base yourself in either Amarea Resort or Kaamala Resort in Ubud, and visit the waterfalls of Kanto Lampo and the rice fields of Tegalalang. Dine Western, Thai or Japanese at the very popular Wild Air restaurant, Sans Thai or Kojin Teppanyaki or Shichirin Konro Grill respectively. Book a double spa experience at their signature Svaha Spa, available at three locations – Jl Bisma, Kenderan or Teges. When in Ubud make sure you experience a ‘melukat’ or water healing ceremony. Here the team from Ini Vie are on hand to guide you, and create a bespoke and seamless trip of romantic proportions, floating breakfasts included!!
Winding your way down from the hills, romantic sunrises can be enjoyed if you have booked into Sanora Sanur Villa, a short motorbike or car ride away from memorable dawns and crazy, colored skies with sea views – the ultimate romantic beach walk with whispering sea breezes.
Once you have seen a sunrise or two, head for the sunset-side of the island – Jimbaran, Kuta, Legian, Seminyak. Intimate staycations at Sini Vie Villa, Aksari Seminyak or Eight Palms. Trending Canggu offers even more villas, some even with rice paddy views, try Astera Canggu, Aeera Villa or Nara.
Neither your holiday, nor your romance, would be complete without heading to a beach club or two, and one of Bali’s most romantic is actually in Nusa Dua. The white sand beaches here play host to Tropical Temptation Beach Club, otherwise known as TT Beach Club, with its fabulous Pool Party Series and DJ’d events.
So whether your choice is for the hills or the beaches, it’s clear to see that Bali does romance in spades!! Happy Valentine’s Day…
