After months of stressful planning, when your wedding turns out amazingly, you want nothing but the perfect honeymoon, to be the icing on the cake. And you know what else? Even the honeymoon takes planning. So at the end of it, the perfect place to unwind is Bali. With its picture perfect beaches, the luxurious Balinese massages and the exotic frangipani flowers welcoming you, Bali is a honeymooner’s paradise. Bali tour packages come at prices to suit every budget, and that will never be a cause for concern.
So, what makes Bali your ideal honeymoon getaway? Well, Bali holidays usually mean plenty of sea, surfing and seafood. To get a different feel of the island, visit one of the active volcanoes, or drive through the green rice paddies. Seminyak, in Southern Bali is a popular honeymoon destination, with its swish resorts and upscale restaurants. There are beach villas as well, which include a private pool and garden, and serve the most mouth-watering meals. The Jimbaran Bay is known for its coral reef, and the waves are not high, making it great for swimming.
After unwinding by the sea, if you’re feeling adventurous you can go scuba diving at Padang Bai, or Menjangan Island. Bali is known for its world-class teaching centers that train you to become a diver. These are becoming increasingly popular with not just backpackers, but even honeymooners. Kuta and Nusa Lembongan are great for surfing, and even if you don’t feel up to it, just watching the surfers gives you an adrenaline rush. To get a taste of Bali’s rich cultural heritage, you can visit Ubud’s stunningly designed temples, and simply walk around the town to take in the rich local art.
After soaking in the sun and the culture, head straight for a traditional Balinese massage. These masseuses blend age-old Balinese techniques with nature elixirs and at the end of it, you feel almost weightless! Most resorts have spas, and among the best are located in Nusa Dua, Ubud and Jimbaran. Take your pick, and there is very little chance that you’ll go wrong.
Can any trip, honeymoon or otherwise be complete without sampling the local cuisine? Have a romantic, candlelight dinner with a full course of seafood (if you’re a fan), with a live band playing local music. Wash down your dinner with Bintang beer. Try the Rojak which is a fruit salad, and the delectable noodle soup. Good food after all is a great start to a good marriage!
There are plenty of Bali packages available, which are tailored to your tastes. So forget all the stress and just board that plane to the perfect Balinese honeymoon. You will come back with great memories and unforgettable experiences.
