bali, hotels/resorts/villas for honeymoon

hello,

just wondering if anyone has a suggestion for beautiful hotels in Bali for honeymoon :)

ideally we would love to stay in a hotel that is not massively huge and popular (soulless in the way ...if you know what i mean...) on the sand beach with palm trees and a cosy fun and intimate atmosphere. place that is full of character and looks like a paradise rather than a corporate with thousands of tourists resort ... though has all of the comfort and not too remote. would be amazing if the place has a yoga classes or yoga shala nearby ... basically a place from the postcard haha! thank you :)

I don't know how much is your budget, but you can try Oberoi Hotel Seminyak.

..... uh no.

Hi Irina,

If you are looking for that "postcard' look then Bali is the wrong place.

For a starter Bali's beaches are not the best. You'll find better beaches in Cornwall.

Can't think of any palm fronted beach area.

The area with the best kept beaches/groomed sand are in the area of Nusa Dua which matches your "massively huge/soulless" non-criteria.

Most of Bali's beaches are dark brown/black sand and some a gravel/sand mix.

And wanting that picture postcard look of paradise but not too far from stuff.

Try Thailand or Caribbean.

It’s difficult without knowing your budget or when you are traveling to make a recommendation. It’s a little bit remote (not totally though) but you could check out Alila Manggis. It’s a beautiful boutique resort for a honeymoon with most of what you seek: https://www.alilahotels.com/manggis#top

We were looking for a similar hotel and after extensive research chose the Shunyata Villas on the East Coast.

Won't be there until next Spring but it does look pretty amazing.

Tim, looks like a lovely villa, but do you realise how remote you will be? If this is your first trip to Bali, it may not be the best place for your to stay. Unless you are just having a couple of days here, then moving on.

You may like Tandjung Sari hotel in Sanur. Oberoi as suggested.As mentioned Bali is not famed for beautiful beaches. Perhaps a property in Ubud with a “jungle” view and infinity pool. Ubud is famed for yoga. Weather at the time of year for your travel will be an influence. Wet season is roughly November through to April. And the beaches and ocean on the West will be covered in rubbish/debris (Oberoi Seminyak).

oh yes - very aware of it's location. Spending a few days there and then on to Ubud for the remainder of the trip where we will be more actively exploring. Was only looking for an ocean view R&R for this portion of the trip.
