20 Most Romantic Hotels in Bali | Where to stay in Bali

Imagine Bali... 

The bear hug of the tropical breeze. Silky, silver sand sliding between your toes. The hypnotic soundtrack of waves lustfully lashing the cliffs. And a rainbow of art and culture popping against rainforest vistas soaked in green.

Are you there yet? 

Bali is an Indonesian island of dazzling natural beauty.

And best known today as an island for romance. Steadily growing in popularity over the last 30 years, Bali is famous for seducing couples with its romantic resorts and mystical charms. Because Bali is a fantasy setting for destination weddings, tropical honeymoons and once-in-a-lifetime romantic moments.


So if you're thinking Bali might be the perfect host for your special romantic trip,  where in Bali best suits your romantic style?

With a rich assortment of beaches including palm-fringed white sandy coastlines, cliff-guarded ‘secret’ shores and the striking black sands of its north-west seafront, Bali gives you choices. And if beaches aren't top of your tropical wish list? Then Bali's lush rainforest covered heartland of hills and volcanic mountains offer a romantic hideaway buzzing with nature's magic.

Here are some of the most popular destinations in Bali for couples:

Ubud is the soul of Bali. Rich in culture and singing with spirituality. Surrounded by rice paddies and rainforests, Ubud is the place to stay if you want to experience the true wealth of Bali’s flora and fauna. And all within easy reach of many of Bali's best restaurants, local art galleries and artesian markets. 


Seminyak is a trendy tourist hotspot and home to Bali’s most fashionable beach. Perfect for couples that want to live The High Life, Seminyak offers luxurious hotels and resorts, fancy restaurants and chic boutiques in abundance.


Nusa Dua is an exclusive destination designed for couples who want to escape from reality. Come here if you're seeking a tropical paradise cocooned in luxury. Think: white sand beaches, crystal clear waters and unapologetic indulgence in world-class hospitality.


Uluwatu on the southwestern tip of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula is known for its towering cliffs and scary-big surf waves. Less accessible than some of Bali’s more popular romantic destinations, this is a great place to stay if you’re a bit more adventurous...or a couple that likes to take the path less travelled.
