I’ve compiled a list of the top ten things do in Bali for couple, whether you’re coming with your partner for a romantic getaway or are on your honeymoon. You’ll travel through rice fields, cuddle up under the stars at the beach, and more
Bali is one of the most picturesque destinations there is. It’s so beautiful that you can even take “Instagram Tours” of the most beautiful places. Whether you want to stay in at a villa, go to a spa, or take in the sceneries, Bali has something for you to love with the one you love. I was simply amazed at all the different options that existed. It doesn’t matter what you and your partner’s interests are, there will be something for you to both enjoy.
1. Floating Breakfast, Jungle Swing, and Spa Romantic Tour
The romantic tour begins with a pickup from the motel where you’ll meet your own private guide. The guide will take you to a natural pool of the Ubud jungle where you and your partner will enjoy a spectacular floating breakfast, including some American breakfast favorites. There’s no better way to enjoy breakfast than by having it in the middle of a tropical jungle.
After breakfast, it’s time for a refreshing nature walks around the Ubud countryside. Ubud has proven popular with report visitors to the highland town because it’s just such a wonderful place to be. Head to Tjampuhan Ridge and go to the Tegalalang Rice Terrace, where you’ll learn about Tri Hita Karana. Learn how the practice became a guide for the Balinese way of life and how it became so important to the people of Bali. Of course, there’s also the opportunity to take some stunning photographs.
A bit of walking later, and you’ll be shown some of the most special and unique sights of the jungle with a jungle swing. After swinging above the jungle, it’s time for afternoon tea. Once the tea is over, it’s time for a 90-minute spa treatment to wash away the day surrounded by the jungle and rice fields. This sells fast, so make sure to reserve yours
2. Romantic Dinner on a Forest Tree Deck
The romantic evening starts out with a pickup from your hotel. From there, you’ll be taken to a stunning 5-star resort for an excellent adventure in romance. You’ll have the chance to take a leisurely stroll on your way to the private tree deck you’ll be spending the evening. Enjoy a romantic evening surrounded by the natural beauty of Bali resplendent with luscious trees and wildlife. Who needs romantic music when you can take in the delightful sounds of the birdsong around you?

3. Two-Hour Riverside Spa Treatment
Nothing says “romance” quite like a relaxing spa experience with your partner. This is your chance (and your partner’s chance) to be pampered beyond belief by a personal professional therapist. Spend a few hours soaking in the spa treatment as your worries and doubts fade away into the surrounding natural wonders, including a stunning waterfall.

“Me and my partner thoroughly enjoyed this experience since it allowed us to completely destress and relax.”
The treatment starts with a 10-minute foot bath ritual to prepare you for the rest of the spa experience. This is followed up with 60 minutes of pure bliss in the form of a massage using frangipani oil to whisk you away to the Balinese jungles, at least in spirit. The massage applies gentle stress to the pressure points and meridians across your body to restore health, vitality, and spirit. You’ll come out of the massage feeling incredible.
Next comes an exfoliating scrub with your choice of scrub; choose from more frangipani oil, a milk scrub, or a green tea scrub for a 30-minute treatment to put you at ease in body and soul. When the body wash is complete, you are treated to a refreshing milk bath to maximise the results and revitalize your skin. When all is said and done, it’s time to stop by the sauna to bring everything to a close. Each spa room comes complete with towels and a shower and a complimentary ginger tea completes the spa experience.
4. Sunset Dinner Cruise with Hotel Pickup
Don’t feel like eating dinner in the treetops? Another option would be to combine a beautiful Bali cruise with a lovely dinner with this sunset dinner cruise. Take in the sights around you as you enjoy a dinner made all the more special by the stunning sunset.
You’ll be picked up from your hotel and taken to the Benoa Harbor, where the cruise awaits. Board the boat and get your flower lei and welcome cocktail from a friendly member of the crew. Sip on your cocktail and breathe in that refreshing ocean air as you take in the picturesque ocean views around you.
As the ship departs and you enter the open the sea, the colors of the night sky change in a beautiful display. Watch out for the changes from blue to orange, purple, and red as you enjoy an international buffet dinner complete with live music to enhance the atmosphere.
When dinner is all said and done, you and your partner are treated to a cabaret show, and you’ll have the chance to sing yourself with karaoke and dance at the disco. If you’d rather relax with your partner, then there’s the spacious upper deck where you can do some stargazing before returning back to your hotel in Bali. Reserve your table here.
5. Romantic Dinner Among the Rice Fields
Have yourself a night to remember and create memories that last a lifetime with a romantic dinner at a luxury hotel. Stroll down the candlelit path with your partner to the wooden pedestal where you’ll take in the serene beauty around you.

It doesn’t get much more beautiful than an evening in Bali, surrounded by nature.
6. Mount Batur Sunset Trek and Mini Picnic
If you want to see the sights with your partner but don’t like the idea of getting up at sunrise, then the Mount Batur sunset trek is just right for you. This is a private tour that is ideal for those looking for a mountain adventure with their partner. You’ll be able to take in a sunset view after climbing the mountain in the cool evening air while it’s still light out.
As you hike up the mountain, take in the views; including caldera, lakes, frozen black lava, and green trees. There’s also a sunrise hike if you feel like it, but the sunset trek offers plenty of natural light to enjoy the wonderful natural beauty around you.
After reaching the peak of Mt. Batur there’s a beautiful panoramic view of the Batur volcano waiting for you. You’ll feel like the king (and queen) of the world as you look down at the beautiful views around you. See the stunning Mount Abang and Mount Agung, not to mention the sparkling Lake Batur, as your guide prepares a lovely evening picnic for you to enjoy.
7. Balinese Cooking Class at an Organic Farm
Feel like making your own food instead of having someone else make it for you? Why not take a cooking class and learn how to make your own authentic Balinese cooking class at an organic farm? You and your partner will take in parts of the island rarely seen by other tourists. Enjoy your time with the locals and tour the markets to see the daily lives of the locals as they go about buying and selling goods and ingredients.
Learn the traditional Balineses dishes at an organic farm
You’ll be picked up from your hotel and taken to the farm where the cooking class is held. There’s a delicious tea or coffee waiting for you on arrival. After your drink, it’s time for a quick tour.

8. Sacred Temples and Sunset Private Tour
This full-day tour starts out with a private pickup from your hotel that takes you to the Gajah Temple, also known as the Elephant Cave Temple. The temple gives you the chance to admire the incredible unique layout and structure. You’ll also visit the Gunung Kawi Sebatu Temple, which is an 11th-century temple and funerary complex that spreads across both sides of the Pakerisan River.
The next temple in the itinerary is the Tirta Empul Temple, also known as the Holy Spring Temple. It’s here that you and your partner can receive a holy blessing and be purified. Next comes the Royal Family Temple, known in Bali as the Taman Ayun Temple. The temple, located in Mengwi, is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the temple and how it was built back in 1634. The temple was built by the king of the Mengwi dynasty on an island surrounded by a manmade lake.
The tour ends with a look at the most photographed temple in all of Bali, Tanah Lot. Tanah Lot is situated on a small rocky islet that becomes inaccessible during the high tide. It is often where people go to get the best view of the sunset in Bali. When everything is said and done, you and your partner will be returned to your hotel. Learn more here.
9. Romantic Evening Dinner Cruise
Enjoy one of the most romantic evening cruises in Bali onboard a 64-foot luxury catamaran cruise ship. The evening starts with a lovely welcome drink and delicious canapé at the Marina garden in Benoa Harbor. After your drink, you’re welcomed aboard the ship by the sounds of sweet music and entertainment. You and your partner are serenaded during the meal by a 3-man acoustic band who play all of the classics and the most recent musical hits. Feel like listening to something special? Don’t be afraid to request a specific song. They’re more than happy to play it, assuming they know it, of course.
The catamaran sails towards Nusa Dua to give travelers a night of beautiful views, good food, and enjoyable entertainment. While it’s unlikely that you’ll be completely alone on the cruise, the atmosphere remains very intimate because there are never more than eight couples on the cruise at any one time.
From the ocean sounds to the delicious food, this is a cruise that promises to deliver a memorable evening. Just watch out for the cold weather at night. You might want to bring a jacket. The staff on the cruise do offer blankets, but it’s always a good idea to take your own.
10. Bali Nusa Dua Theatre – Devdan Show
Want to take in a show with your partner? Not any old show will do. Embark on a journey of the senses that guides you through the cultures and history of Indonesia as you watch the incredible “Devdan – Treasure of the Archipelago” show with your partner. You’ll be treated to an incredible spectacle featuring acrobatics, dance, music, and special effects. The show pays homage to all the traditions of the many Indonesian islands. It promises to be an excellent treat for all.
One of the spetecular show in Bali
Make things easier on yourself by booking a hotel pick up ahead of time, or just make your own way to the Nusa Dua Theatre. Settle down into the air-conditioned theatre and watch along as the actors tell the story of two children who take a trip to Bali but get bored with the standard itinerary. The kids climb a mountain and find a chest that contains magical items that will take them on a fantastic journey to the treasures of the Indonesian islands.
The “journey” takes you to Java, Sumatra, Bali, Papua, Kalimantan, and more. Enjoy the spectacular traditional costumes and dances of the archipelago and the stunning special effects and acrobatic feats of the performers across the full 90-minute extravaganza. The show, suitable for all ages, takes place on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. You’re even welcome to take photos with the cast members when the show is over if you want.
Bali is a truly special experience – whether you go with your loved ones, friends, or family, this is an island destination that doesn’t disappoint. If anything, it’ll likely go above and beyond what you could possibly have expected. I know that for me, it is one of the most romantic places I have ever visited and this is why I keep booking my flight to see it all over again.
