Being so vibrant, refreshing, and upbeat, Bali has always impressed anyone and everyone who set their foot on this land. Be it the people, the beautiful smiles, the happy culture and traditions, the art and craft, the regional dances, food and nightlife scenes, adventure sports and luxurious spas, or the lavish hotels and resorts, Bali has always embraced the travelers with its open arms, and especially the honeymooners. Having said that, check out how Madhu Sudhana and his wife planned their honeymoon for 5 days in Bali, share their experience on how Bali embraced them with nothing but love!
I planned a honeymoon trip to Bali with my lady for the sheer fact that Bali was naturally synonymous with beauty. Be it the trek, the rice field terraces, waterfalls, or volcanoes, we took no time in choosing Bali for our special vacation. We had only heard that Bali is not only famous for its art and crafts, luxurious beach resorts, colourful ceremonies, dramatic dances and exciting nightlife but also for the kind-hearted people and ever-welcoming culture.
And to experience the same, we boarded our first Chennai to Bali flights from Chennai International Airport at 11:30 PM, and reached Bali Airport the next day via Bangkok at 10:30 AM. And just like that, Bali happened for us!

Weather In Bali
During the period when we were on our honeymoon, the Bali skies were totally clear resulting in the bright and sunny days. The weather in Bali seemed warm yet mild throughout our stay. However, it did drizzle a bit in the early mornings and late nights which again was a good weather to experience on our trip!
Activities We Enjoyed On Our 5 Days Trip To Bali
1. Enjoying The Mount Batur Trek
Although Bali was a very happy place in itself, there was something more exciting about the Mount Batur Trek. From the tour guide to the fellow travelers, everyone was pretty helpful in nature and guided us well on the way. While the views were to die for, it was a great feeling to have set foot on the top of an active volcano and soaking in the beauty of Mount Batur’s goodness was just ecstatic. It was indeed a great feeling to see the sun setting and making the horizon look so beautiful.
2. Letting Our Inner Child Out On The Bali Swing
Located in Kabupaten Bandung which was like a 20 minutes drive from Ubud, we didn’t know what an adventure Bali Swing would turn out to be. The meaning of swing changed post this experience that took us above the lush green rice fields, the terraced farms, the dense jungle, and the river of course. Considered to be one of the most famous activities in Bali for couples as well, you can choose the height at which you can enjoy the Bali Swing, and it was a great experience indeed.

3. Touring The Nusa Penida Island
Nusa Penida Island was a calm adventure for us, and it was indeed one of the most romantic experiences. The whole island, the beach, and the dip in the waterfall was a wonderful experience indeed. We clicked many photos near the waterfall and the beach, and it was a great feeling to have captured such beautiful moments which we expected to enjoy in Bali and the place did actually live upto it.
Our Beautiful Hotel In Bali
We chose to stay at the Alam Puisi Villa that is located in Ubud, and we knew it was one of the finest decisions we’ve ever made ever since we stepped into that villa. Though it is located 60 kilometers away from the airport, it was one of the best places for any couple to stay at and create memories. The place was set right in the midst of a lush rice field and was so serene and peaceful. The views from the private pool also made the difference and the people of course, were very polite, had a smile on always, and offered humble service.
Do’s And Don’ts In Bali For Future Travelers
Here are some of Bali travel tips that one might find useful on their journey:
- Do try the local cuisine. Although we don’t remember the names of the restaurants, the food was pretty good, and you will love it in case you’re a non-vegetarian.
- We as a couple loved to stay a bit away from the city which was pretty far from the happening centre. Hence, we didn’t have a chance to visit a lot of shopping centers. In case you love to indulge in shopping activities, then stay closer to the center.
- Don’t buy a lot of things from the supermarket. Instead visit the small markets from where you can buy eatables at a decent cost.
- As far as expenses are concerned, we had planned a 5 days budget in Bali. Apart from the tour package, we spent about 1,40,000 INR during our stay.
- Last but not the least, make sure you plan to stay for at least one week in Bali. We planned only for 5 days due to which we missed out on scuba diving in Bali. We tried snorkeling but in case you are interested in watersports, make sure you plan well in advance.
