For honeymoon destinations, you can’t do much better than Bali. So for our own honeymoon in fact, that’s where we decided to go. For those who are new to us we are travel bloggers who have traveled to 70+ countries. And since we were researching for our own honeymoon, you can be assured that we trawled through all honeymoon hotels in Bali, eventually compiling a selection of the hotels and villas on the island that deliver in terms of ambience, vibe, service, and location.
There are so many paradisical hotel choises that staying in a random place would mean missing a major highlight of Bali. Almost all the honeymoon hotels in Bali we discovered were equipped with their own infinity pools, floating breakfast trays, and legendary spas overlooking lush, tropical forests – meaning that solving the dilemna of choosing where to stay is a task in itself.

Not On Honeymoon?
That’s fine, many come to Bali only to experience the luxury of staying at these incredible hotels. So if you want to treat yourself, then you’ve come to the right place, as we have a number of places to recommend.
Staying in a top hotel in each city over your stay will probably stretch your wallet a little too far. So if you don’t have the budget to hop between honeymoon hotels in Bali, we advise selecting one or two hotels from this list, and interspersing your stay with more affordable accommodation. Click on the links below to check out the best decently-priced options in each of Bali’s cities.
Makes sure to email your hotel to tell that you are on your honeymoon. Sometimes they will prepare you a small surprise like a fruit basket. However since half of the tourist on the island is on their honeymoon, and therefore you are no special, they mostly make swans with the towels. Still worth a try. 🙂
