With its laid-back atmosphere and dreamy landscapes, Bali is the perfect destination for any romantic getaway.
Out of a list of thousands of activities for lovebirds to do in Bali, here are my personal picks for 10 romantic things to do with your someone special:
1. Have A Romantic Dinner In Bali
The quintessential big romantic gesture lies in the romantic dinner - wine and dine. Bali, blessed with its jaw-dropping views and amazing natural landscapes offers a wide variety of just such romantic dinners for every couple - whether you are proposing, celebrating an anniversary or simply on a romantic vacation.
Romantic Dinner In Canggu
Snuggle in for an aphrodisiac picnic dinner in bed at the ultra-stylish museum-hotel Hotel Tugu Bali for sunset. You get to soak in the soft candlelight peppering the beach and serve each other dessert blindfolded for that added spice to end your meal.

Romantic Dinner In Uluwatu
Uluwatu is the chic, upper-class cousin of more popular areas like Seminyak and Kuta. It has some of the best views on the islands and no shortage of amazing resorts and infinity pools. Out of the many, I recommend these two specific dinners in Uluwatu situated next to infinity pools at the edges of cliffs for their stunning views and exceptional cuisine.
First off, this oceanfront candlelight dinner on the edge of a cliff. Surrounded by candles and flower petals, your table affords you a perfect view of the vast Indian Ocean below. Choose between 3 tantalising menus to impress your loved one and make this a night to remember!

Dinner on an infinity pool overlooking the horizon? We say yes please!
The second option provides for the added luxury of a couple’s spa before the sunset dinner at one of Uluwatu’s ultra-chic 5 star hotels. Arguably the spa with the best view in Bali, this added bonus is the perfect pre-cursor to the one of the dinner to follow which is equally stunning.

By far one of the most luxurious dining options in Bali is this cliffside dinner overlooking the Indian ocean.

Romantic Dinner On A Cruise From Benoa
If cruising is more your activity, watch the sunset over dinner on a luxury catamaran. There’s a live Batako band that will serenade you with your acoustic favourites. They take requests from guests so you can have them play “your song” while the sun sets over the horizon.

Romantic Dinner In Ubud
If you’re staying in Ubud, traveling to these locations may be a bit of a hassle. But fret not, there are many options for romantic dinners in Ubud. One of the most famous is the secluded private pavilion in the middle of the rice paddies. Chef Ongky’s 4-course discovery menu features the best of Balinese cuisine. I’m a personal fan of his melt-in-your-mouth beef tenderloin and refreshing sherberts.
Romantic Dinner Ubud Bali
For a more private evening, this candlelight dinner overlooking the Ubud valley is a must-do. It’s held in a quiet section of the recently renovated Kamandalu resort in Ubud, which feels just like a picturesque village in the countryside. As you can see from the photo below, the setting and the candle decorations are absolutely stunning and you even get to release 2 white doves before your 6-course dinner.

Alternatively, if you prefer to dine in your very own ‘bird’s nest’, this gorgeous twilight dinner below is sure to wow with a spectacular view.
The 4-course dinner even comes with a rejuvenating 1-hour massage overlooking the rice paddies and river so you are totally relaxed and ready to enjoy each other’s company the light falls.

Romantic Dinner in Nusa Dua
If luxury is more your thing, try this romantic dinner at Samabe resort which sits on a private beach. What makes it really stand out is the fact that dinner is served in a cave. A personal butler, dedicated chefs, a private cave and beach. What more can you ask for?

2. Take A Bali Cruise Day
No trip to Bali is complete without spending a day out on the water exploring its beautiful sister islands Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. Our top pick? This luxury catamaran cruise to Nusa Lembongan. Your day trip includes access to a private beach club, snorkelling in crystal clear water and sunset cocktails! Tip: book this as soon as possible, because this cruise is usually fully booked!
This private catamaran cruise is limited to a maximum of 30 passengers, ensuring an intimate setting for your romantic excursion
If you happen to arrive in Bali between April 1 and October 31, this castaway cruise to Nusa Penida will take you to the spectacular white sand bay and stunning waters of Crystal Bay.

3. Mt. Batur Hiking - Watch The Sunrise At The Peak Of The Volcano
The traditional paths tend to get crowded and not-so romantic. So if you’d like to avoid the crowds, take a private route that avoids the crowds.
Locals have a saying that you haven’t really visited Bali if you haven’t scaled the sacred volcano – Mt Batur. Legend states that the volcano was created by the Gods. Batur is a still active volcano with the summit sitting above the clouds.
An early morning (3AM!) pick-up is followed by a drive and a trek up the volcano under the starry sky. The reward is a majestic sunrise above the clouds at the summit which is one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen.
4. Unwind At A Luxury Spa With A Couples Package
After spending all night scaling a volcano, you’ll be tempted to spend the entire day in bed – don’t! Your legs will be sore for days if you go straight to bed. Instead, a massage will help reduce the soreness and give you a chance to relax after an arduous climb. The Amala Spa in Seminyak is a local institution. Their signature luxury Traditional Balinese massage will have you on cloud 9 in no-time. Ask for the couple massage & enjoy nirvana with your loved one.
You can choose to extend the pampering with scrubs and facials.

5. Take A Scenic Bali Helicopter Tour
Lovebirds beware the human traffic jams at popular sights like Tanah Lot and Uluwatu! Jostling with the madding crowd (and trying to avoid the mischievous monkeys) can often ruin an otherwise relaxing stay. To avoid the hassle, why not try a scenic helicopter ride for two to cover all the sights? 60 minutes will get you unbeatable views of Kuta’s windswept coastline, Ubud’s river gorges and even the caldera at Mount Batur, all in the comfort of your own seats.

7. Go On Some Bali Adventures
While some couples might come just to relax, there’s nothing like a little adrenaline to keep the hearts aflutter. For the adventurous duo, outdoor activities like white water rafting, canyoning or even waterfall hunting are sure to bring you closer together. Don’t forget your GoPro camera to capture the amazing footage!
White Water Rafting Bali
Get your heart pumping by rafting down the Ayung river & enjoy scenic views of the rainforest and breathtaking gorges.
Canyon down waterfalls, gorges & natural water slides. A once in a lifetime experience for sure.

8. Attend A Bali Cooking Class
If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty together, book a private cooking class for a chance to explore the intricacies of Balinese cuisine with your partner. I recommend that you experience an open kitchen in the countryside, this private couple’s cooking class overlooking the rice paddies is a wonderful bonding experience (you get to pick your own vegetables!)

9. Go Cycling Through Ubud
If you fancy a little exercise, book a cycling tour through Bali. Tours are usually downhill and show you a completely different side of Bali. I recommend the indomitable Ketut in Ubud, who is friendly, knowledgeable and speaks perfect English.
The both of you will enjoy the breathtaking views overlooking rice terraces, mountains and rivers. You’ll get a chance to meet a royal family of a village, visit a local temple and a cacao plantation (i.e. chocolate!)

10. Take a Second Honeymoon Package

Bali has a host of luxury experiences and after receiving an overwhelming number of requests to create a romantic package, the Voyagin team created a one day luxury experiences honeymoon package which is sure to be one of the most romantic days of your life. You can book this exclusive package through Voyagin or have a look to get inspiration for your romantic stay.
