There are countless popular honeymoon destinations the world over; you could head to Orlando for a Disney-themed affair, you could indulge yourself in wildlife and beaches in Sri Lanka, or you could cruise the Caribbean and see several destinations within the space of one break. Having said that, there is one destination which is popular time and time again with newlyweds, proving to be the perfect backdrop for that first, all-important holiday together as a married couple.
We are of course talking about the heavenly surroundings of Bali, Indonesia.
Whilst Bali has somewhat of a reputation for its backpacking routes, there are some laid-back, paradise-soaked, and luxury resorts too, with countless accommodation options available to anyone who visits, regardless of the reason. Where to stay in Bali depends entirely on what you’re after, and there are budget options, as well as five star options – if you’re visiting for your honeymoon, you will probably want something a little more upscale, something relaxing and sophisticated, and in that case you’re spoilt for choice – check out the Fontana Hotel Bali as just one option available to you.
Bali is widely known as the Islands of the Gods, mainly because of its unrivalled beauty, but also because of its culture and traditions, with temples and history at every turn. Obviously Bali is also known for its beach resorts, its laid-back charm, and its world-class diving and snorkelling spots. Here you can kick back and relax on a white sand beach, knowing that the underwater world is clear and sparkling just a few feet away from you, and you can head under the water and check it out for yourself very easily, regardless of your ability level – why not learn to dive whilst you’re away? There are many organisations who will help you gain your PADI certification.
Bali was made for romance, and if you’re looking for peace and quiet then one of the exclusive resorts will cater for your needs. Spas are standard in most of them, and you can enjoy a couple’s massage or many other treatments, before heading onto the beach for a private dinner, just the two of you. Rooftop lotus ponds, outdoor terraces, waterfalls, private cabanas, bungalows over the crystal clear waters, champagne brunches, these are all available to those who want to enjoy their special holiday together.
Kuta Beach is the most touristic resort on Bali, and it is here that you will see most of the backpackers working their way through, however a good source of middle ground is the more upmarket Seminyak, which gives you the safety blanket of tourism, with a quiet and upscale vibe thrown in for good measure.
Wherever you choose to head for your little slice of heavenly paradise, Bali will certainly tick the boxes you need ticking, including peace, serenity, rest, relaxation, and all with a truly breath-taking background for those precious honeymoon photographs.
